Use the healing properties of water for better health
Have you ever heard about the healing properties of water? Hydro or water therapy is considered one of the most ancient of all healing remedies. Ancient cultures such as the Greeks, Hebrews, Persians, Hindus, Chinese, Romans, and Egyptians have well documented uses of water therapy. The first book on water therapy was written in 1881 called The Tokio Medical Journal and was published in Japan.
Hydrotherapy first came to America in the 1790s. It was typically applied for the reduction of fever and reduction of inflammation. Dr. Kellogg, the same guy that invented cornflakes cereal, furthered hydrotherapy at his sanatorium in Battle Creek, Michigan in the late 1800s or early 1900s by adding electrical current. I know what you are thinking … isn’t electricity and water together dangerous?!?
Turns out that adding the electric current and directing the current to the adrenals, gut, and occasionally liver or spleen, could actually help improve several health conditions.
