Curative Medicinal Water

The golden combination for healing effect

In the 19th century, as drinking cures came into fashion, people were more generous than today if dealing with packaging and shipping of a costly healing water.
Bottles made of fired clay were mostly used.


Ceramic is still inserted nowadays into high quality filters because it gives pathogenic germs little chance to survive.
Ceramic emits infra-red heat which allows water to have greater hexagonal exclusion zone structures. This we know thanks to the research done by Gerald Pollack. This seems to give the water a better taste. Furthermore, ceramic water stays “fresh” longer.

Another method during the 19th century was invented by the pharmacist Friedrich A. Struve.
He reconstructed the famous curative water with its mineral composition and served it in drinking cure institutions from London to St. Petersburg with enormous economic success.

Yet in the 20th century it was established that not only the minerals are responsible for the healing effect, but also the partly very volatile dissolved gases.

These gases escape, in particular from our modern plastic bottles very quickly after being filled.
The bottles shrink, and we know today, that above all valuable hydrogen escapes, which is very typical in fresh curative waters.
