HYDROTHERAPY (HOT AND COLD WATER TREATMENT) A NESSECITY.

The use of water is one of the most ancient remedies used for overcoming disease. As early as 400 b.c,Hippocrates, who is considered by modern medical science to be the 'The father of Medicine 'prescribed  hot and cold water as a treatment to help people recover from their ailments.
Natural remedies combined with hydrotherapy are more effective in restoring health than all the drug medication in the world. However keep in mind that the use of water can accomplish but little if it is not combined with the appropriate diet and staying well hydrated by drinking copious amounts of water throughout the day. Disease does not exist without some kind of disturbance in the  circulation. The efficacy of herbs is diminished if blood is not circulating properly. Perfect health depends upon perfect circulation. Raising and lowering temperature of the body through hydrotherapy will help break up congestion and facilitate elimination and improve circulation. Cold water stimulates and hot water relaxes. Together ,they are like a universal pump that makes blood flow.
It is through the skin that hydrotherapy produces its powerful physiologic actions .the skin is intimately connected to every organ in the body via the nervous system and circulatory system. By changing the skin temperature with water applications that are hot or cold, nerve sensations will stimulate or sedate specific systems or organs. But remember that this is a process that must be done faithfully and continuously to get desired results. In my next post I will describe a step by step method of  carrying out hydrotherapy. GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT.
