Hydrotherapy involves using water, essential oils, castor oil and even mustard to stimulate the circulation and immune system. Hydrotherapies are very effective ways to heal the body without swallowing herbs and supplements. Examples include: warming socks, steam inhalation, castor oil packs, mustard plasters, and Epsom salt baths.
Conditions often improved with Hydrotherapy include:
- Colds and flus
- Menstrual disorder
- Sprains and strains
Both Dr Caralei Peters ND and Dr Jiselle Griffith ND often recommend hydrotherapy treatments for you to do at home.
