Bathing in Vichy Water

Vichy waters have unique characteristics when consumed due to high total alkalinity. These include the relief of excess stomach acidity. The buffering effect is like a natural Alka Seltzer. It is also used for any acid condition including gout, stomach ulcers, rheumatism, and arthritis. Externally the Pomo then and Americans today use it for burns, cuts, rashes, abrasions of the skin, sunburn, psoriasis, eczema, and locally it was and is renowned as an immediate cure for poison oak.

For the fit and firm, the baths are simply the most relaxing feeling one can experience in water. The carbonation after four or five minutes dramatically relaxes the body’s largest organ, the skin, and dilates the body’s capillaries. This yields the bather a feeling of warmth and peacefulness. Tranquility follows and usually the bather begins to gently float in the bath. Due to the unique properties of the water the bather’s skin is softened in the water and feels much like babies’ skin.

Europeans also know that carbonated Vichy Water, along with its high and balanced mineral content, relieves those with extreme circulatory problems. Diabetics and others stay at Vichy, France, and Vichy Springs, Ukiah. They bathe several times per day with dramatic circulatory increases.
