As one of the main components of Nature Cure, hydrotherapy refers to the external therapies that utilize water and sometimes other natural substances, such as mustard or castor oil, in order to stimulate the vital force of the organism.
Varying temperatures of water are used, often in contrast, in order to stimulate the circulation of blood to either a particular area or to the core of the body. The increased blood circulation brings cleansing white blood cells and other immune system constituents to those areas in need. The movement of the blood invigorates the individual and healing occurs.
This section provides detailed instructions on a few of the hydrotherapies that Dr. Erin often recommends to her patients.
