Well, I have decided to drink the water as is, without boiling. We have drank it like this in the past, the only reason we didn't do so on a regular basis was the work involved. Basically taking a wheelbarrow and a 30-40 liter can and walking some distance to the spring and back. I have a full can now and have been using this.
I do tend to agree with you mouseclick that a few bugs are probably good for us, strengthening the immune system and that as a whole we have gone "sterile crazy" After all, isn't that what our immune system is for in the first place? To protect us.
I am having a VERY hard time preparing food for others and not doing so is not an option for me. Also my food craving are very strong. EVERYTHING sounds good! This is hard!
I have no scale at home, so when I finish the fast I will go back to the doctors and weigh and also get my blood work done again to see if there is any change ion the numbers.
