Keeping Your Joints Youthful: Drinking Distilled Water as a Remedy for Arthritis
Aches and pains in your joints often feels like part and parcel of growing older. Cracking bones and stiff joints have become a daily burden for many people; the lower back pain that flares up at the end of a long day, aching fingers from too much typing, sore knees from walking. We all feel a nostalgia for our youthful bodies that could jump, run, even cartwheel. For over 50 million adults, joint pain is the result of arthritis: a condition for which there is no cure.
So, how can we keep our bodies youthful? Could drinking distilled water be an elixir for flexible joints? A tonic that can give us the youthful energy and range of movement that we had when we were younger?
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is a condition that describes the slow wearing down of joint function. It is one of the leading causes of disability amongst adults and can have a drastic effect on your quality of life. Arthritis is partially caused by mineral deposits in the joints which crystallise and become inflamed. This inflammation leads to restricted movements and a decreased range of motion. Joints become stiff and cemented and simple daily activities become difficult to complete. Severe arthritis can also lead to chronic pain, bone erosion and deformity.
Could your water be contributing to joint stiffness and arthritis?
Water can help reduce the pain and effects of arthritis. Staying hydrated provides a kind of cushioning around the joints that lubricates movements, making them smoother. However, hard water from your tap may actually be one of the causes of joint pain.
Hard water contains toxic trace elements and inorganic minerals that cannot be absorbed by the body. Chlorine, fluorine and calcium carbonate amongst countless others can be found in the water that comes out of the tap. Think of the kettle in your kitchen, covered in calcification and that white scale that forms in the interior. This build-up within the kettle is caused by the inorganic minerals found in hard water.
Drinking hard water has the same effect on our bodies. Inorganic minerals are slowly deposited around the joints, creating a cementing and stiffness of joints which can lead to arthritis. Considering that an average person will drink up to 450 glasses of the mineral solids found in hard water during a lifespan, it is not hard to imagine the kind of damage and build up that can occur around joints.
The way to maintain youthful joints: how drinking distilled water can cure joint pain
Drinking distilled water is the tonic to joint pain. Our bodies are made up of 80% water and this is integral to maintaining flexibility and a full range of joint mobility. The water in our bodies helps to keep our joints lubricated and functioning. It is therefore important to make sure that the water we consume is of the highest quality.
Distilled water is the purest form of water, whereas hard water can lead to the build-up of minerals around the joints. Drinking distilled water dissolves these mineral deposits and disposes of them. Drinking distilled water can actually reverse the process that causes joint pain and enacts a process of detoxification in the body. Imagine drinking distilled water as like cleaning out the limescale build-up in the kettle.
