The Mineral Springs
Europeans have flocked to hot mineral spring spas for centuries to experience the restorative and curative values of the mineral waters.The practice of “taking the waters” for therapeutic purposes is as popular today as it was in the days of the Roman baths. Within Desert Hot Springs exists one of the greatest thermal water areas in the world. These natural hot springs have been compared to the famous healing waters of Baden-Baden, Vichy and Evian. The very word “spa” means a place providing therapeutic mineral springs but while the number of spas continue to grow in the United States, very few offer the real nature of a spa… healing restorative mineral spring water.
The health benefits of mineral-rich, hot springs have been well documented over the years. From early indigenous peoples to current day health enthusiasts, mineral waters around the world are famous for their healing attributes. While stress is relieved by the natural heat, the minerals absorbed through the skin rejuvenate the body. The water in Desert Hot Springs is also especially rich in silica leaving the skin soft and smooth.

“Every sickness, every disease, every ailment can be traced to a mineral deficiency.”
Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Laureate
The analyses of the waters in Desert Hot Springs, I have not found the like in any country I have explored. What has surprised me most is the mineral content of the water. It is a pronounced curative agency. It would appear to have qualities far superior to any waters known to me. Desert Hot Springs could be an important health center.
