The Won­ders Of The Wa­ters

NZ Today - - LETTERS -

I have seen NZTODAY many times but never pur­chased a copy be­fore, that is un­til yes­ter­day. It’s a great mag­a­zine and see­ing as we are about to pur­chase a car­a­van and head out to see places we haven’t vis­ited yet, it’s a good ref­er­ence mag­a­zine and isn’t clut­tered with loads of ad­ver­tis­ing.

I’m want­ing to know about the min­eral wa­ters you vis­ited at Taupo and Tu­rangi. We have been to the De Bretts one in Taupo but are you able to tell me what oth­ers there are that you soaked in please? I have a mus­cle con­di­tion that is helped greatly by soak­ing in those min­eral wa­ters. Un­for­tu­nately we don’t live in any of those ar­eas so it’s once in a while. What was the min­eral stuff you left on your skin that may help me also? Look­ing for­ward to your re­ply. Re­gards, Mag­gie Mars­den ED. Thanks for your let­ter Mag­gie. The two pools I soaked in were Tokaanu, near Tu­rangi and the newly ren­o­vated Wairakei Ter­races just north of Taupo. In terms of the min­er­als I left on my skin, it was just let­ting the wa­ter dry and not hav­ing a shower. These spe­cial min­eral wa­ters are full of sil­ica, sodium, mag­ne­sium and even ar­senic. All good for one’s health ap­par­ently. Please see more in­for­ma­tion in my Tu­rangi story in this is­sue, but also a min­eral wa­ter ex­pert Dr Alexan­der Kouzmi­nov has writ­ten us a fas­ci­nat­ing story on the his­tory of New Zealand’s min­eral wa­ters and the ben­e­fits of them. Look out for that story in an up­com­ing is­sue.
