- Conditions Treated
Hydrotherapy has a long history in medicine and is an efficient treatment in providing relief and response for many health conditions. Steam inhalation with herbs, contrast hydrotherapy, onion poultices for ear aches, foot baths, neutral baths and constitutional hydrotherapy are ways to use water as treatment. Increasing circulation of blood and elimination of toxins as well as nourishing the immune and nervous system is unique about the application of hydrotherapy with naturopathic doctors. The temperatures of water, duration of treatments and the appropriate ways of use in conjunction with other therapies is important and should be advised by naturopathic doctors for each individual and their health needs.
