Sure, some do use it for medicinal purposes, but I think most that did it routinely were adding it as a preventative measure.

I think RO/DI is the best option, but for me it's just too much of a hassle.

Today our house has a water softener but I use 100% RODI and reconstitute it with GH and KH boosters....highly recommended
