I do this because I need to take lots of pills daily
I know, water, water everywhere, however what kind of water meets my special needs? My choice is to drink water that has been distilled. Why you ask?
I take a lot pills every day. A lot means over 40 capsules and pills each day. Obviously, that is a large number. I must take all of these pills without throwing them up.
Because of the side effects of some drugs I have been required to use, side-effects have occurred. I have to take more pills that counteract these prior medical problems. One situation is that I have osteoporosis and have been required to swallow natural calcium tablets each day. The cause was all of the Prednisone, because of pretty severe Crohns disease. As a result, I am required to get down two additional calcium osteoporosis pills to counter this bone calcium problem. This is one reason why I have to get down so many more pills than most people. As I swallow these pills, I cannot help but notice taste of the various chemicals in our tap water.
I’m not sure why, but my town gets water with a high chlorine level. I can taste it easily. The water company sends quality notices that indicate the district’s water gets supplemented with many chemicals. I’m pretty shocked by this.
I expect that some chemicals would be there, because the water flows over rocks. But, I worry a lot about the additives. The water district serves so many people, and they must ensure that the local water supply is will not make us sick. Pay attention to the water quality reports that come with your water bill, since they can be very informative. Sometimes I would rather not know, yet understanding these water additives is important.
With water that has been distilled, I can take all my drugs and supplements
One time a friend stopped by to see me and we had a conversation about water purity. He is on the road quite a bit, and he told me that he travels with distilled and purified water. Why, I asked? He told me that it is the water knows he won’t get sick on. Plus, anyone can purchase distilled, purified water in any grocery store.
I thought that was interesting. Before, my only uses for distilled water for baby wipes that had dried out. After this conversation, my Crohns has gotten somewhat worse. Due to my health, I now have to take quite a few more pills. Besides my medicine for Crohns, I also must get down supplements and vitamins, including multivitamins and extra vitamin C along with a calcium pyruvate powder supplement because of dietary deficiencies.
Because of Crohn’s Disease, I’m very affected by odors that make me throw up. As a result, I’ve decided to use only distilled water, because I must always swallow all my drugs and supplements daily.
