During the mid-1800's, there was a great interest in the "water cure," a means of curing and preventing disease without the use of drugs of any kind. The Water-Cure Journal, was one of the most successful of the periodicals dealing with this subject. In addition to articles on various water treatments and the uses of water, it was concerned with physiology, pathology, and physical, moral and intellectual development and gave information on cleanliness, clothing, ventilation, diet, pregnancy and prevention of disease.Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
