Mud (fango) therapy is an ancient remedy that has been used to detoxify and cleanse the body through the skin (our largest organ), and to improve energy and rejuvenate the body to feel healthier. It is the only known treatment to restore cellular communication following a trauma (blunt force) or surgery.
Mud bath treatments have been used around the globe dating back to ancient Roman times, as well as early civilizations in India and the Middle East. It was popularized in Europe starting in the early 1800s. Application of highly mineralized mud onto the body has been a common treatment to detoxify, stimulate the circulation, relieve muscular or arthritic pain and smooth the skin. Mud therapy is an integrated and widely-acknowledged therapy of naturopathic science that is not only easy to do, it’s an enjoyable experience that renders a number of health benefits.
The most gentle way to detox is through the skin. Mud therapy allows us to eliminate toxic substances that build up in our system from the environment or such things as heavy metals, hair dye, vaccines or anesthesia. Accumulation of toxins in the body can cause harm to its biological processes. A high toxic load may result in skin problems, frequent or recurring colds, chronic pains, low energy levels, constipation, allergies or many other illnesses.
At Live Well, we’ve been using mud therapy for nearly two decades. A mud therapy is like getting an oil change for your car. It rids the body of debris and buildup and gets things running smoothly again. In one mud pack, we can remove more than 50% of the toxins present at that site. Often used on the liver, kidneys, intestines, and the brain, one mud therapy session can be equivalent to a regular detox program someone might do over the course of 6 months!
Mud packs can be used anywhere on the body. Live Well offers a home starter kit package and group or individual therapy sessions. Depending on the health of the client, some may feel fatigue afterward, but typically, they feel clear, energized, lighter and happier over the course of the next few weeks as the ‘new’ body evolves and thrives. Results will continue to be positive as long as the person does their homework and soaks as prescribed.
Mud therapy is quite easy to do once you have the ingredients and the know-how. Of course, when mud therapy and other treatments are conducted in our clinic, they are more accurately customized to your specific health needs. However, you can absolutely do the packs at home with much success – as this will further your healing. My mentor in California, Julie E recommends a mud pack on the liver, kidneys and intestines at least twice annually to maintain health. She says, it is just like getting a 3,000-mile oil change!
For those trying to improve their health, get out of pain, recover from a vaccine injury or surgery we recommend a full session with us. If you haven’t tried mud therapy now is a great time to get started. Purchase the home therapy to begin the process or join us in September for a group treatment.
