ANTIQUE DISTILLED WATERS KNOWLEDGE: DR: JAMES WILSON, M.D.
“We cannot take down the several pieces and compartments of the animal mechanism, as a watch or engine is taken down to be cleansed and repaired, and then to reconstruct the whole. This not necessary with the living machine, which has an innate power of self-repair and self-cleansing implanted by the creator, as part of its original constitution. You wash your face with water, so why not your stomach too?” — Dr. James Wilson, M.D.
Dr. James Wilson spoke seven languages and had 700 books on the subject of water. He himself was the author of several books on the subject of using pure water to heal, here are some of them with PDF-links to sources you can read for yourself.
