Simply stated Hydrotherapy is using water in a therapeutic way. The power of any healing remedy is enhanced with the use of hydrotherapy.
It is important to flush the body internally with plenty of clear fresh water. Drinking the nutritionally rich juices aid in rebuilding a sick body but they do not do the work of flushing waste from the system. Drinking a good amount of water each day is as important to the health of the body as breathing clean air or eating healthy nourishing foods.
Using water externally to cleanse and open our skin is also an important part of healing. Taking a detoxing herbal bath can revitalize the entire system simulating the removal of waste through the skin as well as the liver and kidneys.
Anytime there is disease or injury there is blockage. A strong therapeutic form of hydrotherapy is commonly called doing “Hot’s and Cold’s”. Alternating the hot and cold water over an affected area will effectively blast through blockage, allowing the body to flood the diseased or injured part with fresh nutrient rich blood. It does no good taking in all the great healing herbs and juices if the nutrition is blocked form the injured or diseased areas of the body.
Consider you want to fire a blood bullet through to blockage around a diseased or injured area. The Hot water loads the gun. Use water as hot as can be tolerated. Do not scald your skin. Turn the water as hot as you can tolerate without injury. With your hand wand concentrate the heat over the affected area until the skin is pink with fresh blood. When heat is applied to the body the blood in pushed to the surface to cool the area. Fresh cooling blood in brought to the area.
Now it is time to fire the blood bullet as deeply as possible through the blockage and into the affected area. The more dramatic the change between hot and cold the more power behind the blood forcing it deeper into the blocked up areas. This can be done in one of two ways.
1) Turn the flow of water away from the body. Now make the water completely cold. IT will take a few seconds for the flow to change to cold. As soon as the water is good and cold apply the flow back over the affected area. Allow the flow to remain for a good 60 seconds before changing back to the hot. Do at least seven “hots” and seven “colds”.
2) Before beginning fill a bucket or tub with ice and water. After the affected area is well heated and filled with blood plunge the area into the ice water for a good 60 seconds. Do at least seven “hots” and seven “colds”.
When healing any major disease or injury the “Hots &Colds” should be done three times a day. Failing to do the hydrotherapy often means the body does not have the ability to heal properly or clear the disease.
