was the well done during a time of moving to that new
I think the immune system trigger is the key....what triggers it initially is pretty much anyone's guess.
I drank distilled water for 10 years, but that started about
4 years before diagnosis...so....it wasn't the water I don't think.
It is best, however, to make sure your water is as healthy as possible....I've never had a well so I'm not much help in that matter....but some things in the water could possibly add stress to the workings of the body in general possibly adding to the autoimmune response.
Hope you find some answers.
