Distillation is the best way to purify your drinking water

Search amazon or do an internet search for a water distiller. A small counter top one will distill one gallon of water in about 5 hours. Take the distilled water and pass it through a carbon filter (like in a Brita pitcher). That two step process will remove almost any impurities (including fluoride added).

If you want to add some healthy trace minerals back, put in ~1/8 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt per gallon. Unrefined sea salt is grey or black, not the white kind you see in the typical grocery store. You can also add ~1/8 teaspoon or so of potassium bicarbonate or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to raise the pH of the distilled water slightly.

I've been treating all of my drinking water that way for years. I use distilled water for all of my cooking and drinking. I usually add some trace minerals to it and adjust pH. If you want to go overboard, you can get a pH meter and TDS monitor to test your distilled water before drinking it.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
