SIMPLE PRACTICAL STEPS OF HYDROTHERAPY

Take a hot shower for 3-5 minutes followed immediately by a cold shower for 30 seconds .Alternate between hot shower  and cold  shower  5 times. Always end with cold shower. Before each shower or bath ,dry brush the skin with a stiff brush until the skin is rosy and warmed. Brush stroking towards the heart region. When contrast showers are done properly, it is said that there is a decided increase in the number of blood cells in the peripheral circulation .This increase often amounts to 20-25% in the red blood cells and from 200-300% in the white blood cells .The hemoglobin also shows an increase of 5% or more. Hydrotherapy can increase circulation by 400%.
Try this contrast shower for 30days continuously .With hydrotherapy, every treatment extends and builds on the benefits of the previous one .In critical cases hydrotherapy should be done twice a day and focus the treatment on the afflicted body part. Taking a steam bath at home is excellent.in serious sicknesses, have a steam bath daily until you are recovered. Sit on a small stool, covered with a blanket , from the neck to the feet,. Place a basin of boiling water between your feet. Replace the water as it cools with more hot water. Maintain this position for twenty minutes. End with a cold shower for 1-2 minutes. As I said earlier, the key to the success of hydrotherapy is patience and continuity. REMEMBER  GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT
