Research Facts
Advertised and known as The Waistcoat Remedy for Gout, Rheumatism, Gouty Eczema, Rheumatic Gout, Gravel, Acidity and all Uric Acid Troubles.
The demand for bottled water was fueled in large part by the resurgence in spa-going and water therapy among Europeans and American colonists in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Early drinkers of bottled spa waters believed that the water at these mineral springs had therapeutic properties and that bathing in or drinking the water could help treat many common ailments.
