Aquatone: “The Water-way to Health”
“If you value good health, it will be worth your while to read this carefully,” proclaims a 1924 brochure for The Paulson Medicinal Well Co. of Saratoga.
The company was promoting its newest natural product, “Aquatone – the Water-way to Health.”
In part the pamphlet reads:
“Are you troubled with indigestion, palpitation of the heart, dizziness?
“Are you always ‘tired out,’ and lacking in bodily vigor?
“If so, your kidneys, liver and other internal organs are not functioning properly. The human system often becomes poisoned by accumulation of impurities, which the organs of elimination are unable to throw off unaided. In time these poisons invariably induce Bright’s Disease, Diabetes, Rheumatism, Dropsy, High Blood Pressure, etc.
“Fortunately, you may easily render valuable assistance to nature in restoring your bodily vigor and vitality by drinking Aquatone.
“This remarkable natural water, which possesses so many extraordinary remedial qualities, comes from the earth-depth of Wyoming. It is all that its name implies because of the unusual virtues that are inherent therein, due to its ‘radioactive’ properties and its chemical constituents. We believe that in no other mineral water known are there found medicinal properties in such perfect proportions for bringing about the desired changes in the tissues of the body – properties that cleanse the blood, eradicate disease, increase the appetite, aid digestion and assimilation, and facilitate the proper functioning of the vital organs.
“Aquatone possesses properties that will help or cure most of the ailment with which men and women are afflicted. This fact has been established beyond question. Sufferers in every state in the union have been cured since its discovery a few years ago, and thousands will be cured in the days to come. It not only benefits the sick, but also helps to preserve the health of all who use it.
“Aquatone is positively a natural water…” – hold it right there. How to be cured by this marvelous water is material for a couple more “Postcards” coming your way soon.
