Adding stuff to the distilled water is a matter of choice. Lemon is great for the liver and makes the water taste good. Actually, I always enjoy a wedge of lemon with my distilled water. Doc has experiemnted with putting sea salt in water. He says just plain old distilled water does the trick of helping to get rid of toxins. You can find that on his CD. The Cetic Sea Salt makes everything taste a lot better to me when I use it on food. I can really taste the difference if I get where only regular table salt from the store is all I can find, like when I go out to a restaurant or to a friend's or relative's house for a meal. That's nothing but a chemical, anyway, and not good for you. You can get those little boxes to put some Celtic salt in to keep in your purse when you're going out to eat. From Selina Naturally, I think. If you use a little bottle, use one with a plastic cover because the salt corrodes the metal cap.
