I just use regular filtered water with no ill effects. :-)

Reached my goal November 2009!

Weight Watchers worked for me and now I work for Weight Watchers.

It is a life style, not a life sentence.

Chib, hey.

I drink distilled water, because I figure its the purest water there is.
To this I add a wee amount of cystalline vitamin C.
How much? About the size of a peppercorn. So not much... cystalline C is concentrated.

Whats not in distilled water? No chlorine, no fluoride, no bromines (3 halogens we have to limit in our diet), no residual pesticides, herbicides and pharmaceuticals. Our water here is sourced from a lake, in the summer the water has the distinct taste of dirt from algae bloom. Mid summer... they remove the taste using some chemical process.
So for me, drinking distilled water is one less thing to obsess about, ya know? ha

Unfortunately it does come in plastic jugs, it costs 83 cents a gallon, I've got to get it at the market... but then nothing is perfect!

I also carry a small container of crystalline vitamin C in my purse, so that if I am out, I can add a bit of it to whatever water or beverage I am drinking. This dechlorinates the water instantly.

For the average Joe (or Jane), it might not matter.
But if you're taking your thryoid meds with water and find that its not being absorbed, it could be that your water is "hard"... has a lot of calcium and magnesium in it. Great for the bones, but lousy for taking thyroid meds. So you might want to take your thyroid hormone with a glass of distilled water with a little C added. The C helps your body absorb your thyroid hormone.

I drink distilled with a wee bit of vitamin C added to it.
And I take both my synthroid and cytomel sublingually.

this was a topic just recently talked about on the yahoo STTM group. Some swear by it others say it hasn't affected them either way. I say try it yourself and see what works for you....
