* From ''Literature/TheBible'' itself: The pool of Bethesda in [[Literature/TheFourGospels John chapter 5]], as explained in the King James Version and other similar translations made from the Textus Receptus:
-->''In these lay a great crowd of invalids, blind, lame, and paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water. After the stirring of the water, whoever stepped in first was healed of whatever disease he had.'' (John 5:3-4, Modern English Version)

** An interesting example is in FinalFantasyVIII when the party is stuck in Timber, unable to visit the nearby [[TraumaInn hotel]]. The player can hear about the so-called "Owl's Tears" owned by an old man. If the player visits him, he will invite you to just drink water straight from his tap. The tap water fully heals the party.

Overwhelmingly common in video games. Usually characters will be able to quickly recover their health simply by immersing themselves in it. Often they can also bottle it and take it with them to drink and heal themselves later.

Rarely is it ever explained how the particular body of water gained its healing properties. In a lot of cases it can be assumed that it was the work of the being that resides in it, or AWizardDidIt. Or the water is just so ridiculously "clean and pure" that it can heal the wounded back to perfect health. Depending on the cause of its abilities, the water may be an example of ReviveKillsZombie.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': A secret training room in Soul Society contains a healing pool designed by Urahara that is based on the original more powerful two-pool system invented by Kirinji. Kirinji's invention uses one pool to suck out all damaged reiatsu and blood which is then restored by the second pool. It's so powerful that will kill people who aren't powerful enough to withstand it. As a result, Kirinji can weaponise it in the middle of battle to either kill enemies or heal allies.

* In the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story "My Unsmurfy Valentine", the Wellspring of Hope has pure clear waters that can heal even good cherubs that are poisoned by lust arrows. Eros the rogue cherub tries to poison the well with a lust arrow, but unfortunately for him his effort fails, as the waters are self-regenerating.

* On ''Series/GoodEats'', in the episode "Water Works," Alton explains that natural spring water was used in times past to cure various ailments. Many times, this actually ''worked'', since the water may have contained minerals many people were deficient in, or simply because when visiting these springs, the IllGirl (or IllBoy) in question would be away from the crowded and unsanitary town or city in which he/she lived (which probably caused them to get sick in the first place). Since only the very wealthy could afford to make the long journeys abroad necessary to access these springs, this led to the practice of doctors near the springs bottling the water to sell and export. This practice continues today, although it's (usually) more about convenience than improving one's health. (And in fact, the bottled water may be just ordinary filtered tap water.)
