Constitutional hydrotherapy in the clinic is done with use of alternating hot and cold towel application to the chest and to the back with a series of sine wave or diathermy.
Constitutional Hydrotherapy helps stimulate the immune system and promotes full body detoxification. It increases circulation of blood and lymph to the contacted skin and throughout the internal organs. This increased circulation improves metabolic function, detoxification, immunity and general vitality. Hydrotherapy has also been also used historically to detoxify heavy metal exposure, pesticide/herbicide toxicity, and the daily toxic buildup of improper diet and lifestyle. It is termed constitutional because it literally has the power to change the constitution of individual cells and makes it more efficient in detoxifying and utilizing nutrients available.
