Mud treatment What are its 3 health benefits?

Mud treatment is one of the effective treatments that are used to treat many diseases, and it also helps to improve health through several methods such as improving the skin and getting rid of rashes, in addition to avoiding seasonal diseases.

Clay has the ability to heal the body from the inside because it contains many vital minerals that fight bad toxins in the body, as well as treat chronic health problems.

Benefits of mud therapy:

Improve digestion

Clay works strongly to absorb toxins in the body, and when you put a layer of clay around the stomach, it improves the digestion process in the body and removes toxins naturally, and also works to accelerate the body’s metabolism.

Fight headache or fever

Placing mud containers around the abdomen area counteracts excessive heat and cools the body from the inside. It also affects you faster during heatstroke when you get a bad headache. What distinguishes these alternative treatments is that they have no side effects.

Good complexion

The biggest benefit of mud is to treat skin problems. According to Ayurveda, the clay removes toxins and controls the bad effects of beta in the body. At the same time, the clay detoxifies the skin from any impurities, leaving you with a smoother complexion. It can also help you cleanse your skin during pollution.

De-stress

Naturopaths and alternative therapists prescribe clay for neurological problems such as stress, sleep disturbances, and anxiety, as well as sciatica and post-traumatic stress disorder, as the clay absorbs toxins from the surface and cleans blocked or tense pathways around the brain.

Good for the eyes

Since ancient times, it has been believed that applying a thin layer around the eyes rejuvenates and promotes eye health. Clay relieves stress and can also help with inflammation and allergies. Studies have said that mud baths reduce the risk of developing glaucoma with age.

Rheumatologist

Mud treats rheumatic conditions 100%, with regard to the spine, lymphadenitis, rheumatoid patients, and chronic joint rheumatism types.

Where doctors advise to perform mud baths for those affected by accidents accompanied by fractures, to help them heal fractures and restore blood circulation to normal, as well as in cases of the trunk, bruises, tendon tightening and joint stiffness resulting from a fracture or a stump.

What should I expect at a mud bath spa?

The exact procedure varies from spa to spa, but the basic outline is pretty simple.

1. You’ll disrobe to your comfort level.

Most people go naked, but you’re also welcome to wear a bathing suit (though you’ll want to make it an older one; mud tends to stain, in case you didn’t know).

2. You’ll gently lower yourself into a tub of heated mud.

Gently because it may take a bit to adjust to the temperature, which is typically over 100 degrees. During the treatment, a spa attendant will usually be on hand to bring you water and make sure you’re comfortable.

3. You’ll climb out and rinse off after about 15 minutes.

In most cases, you’ll be just getting started, however. That’s because mud baths are generally followed by other treatments, such as massages or masks, or at least some time in the spa’s steam room or whirlpool. So while the mud bath itself may only take 15 minutes, it’s best to budget a couple of hours if you’re going to do your visit right.

How long do the effects of a mud bath last?

mud wrap

A mud bath, mud mask, or mud wrap should not be seen as a miracle treatment. “The effects [of a mud bath] would be pretty minimal and short-lasting, most of the time,” Dr. Anders said. That’s because the helpful minerals in mud can’t penetrate any deeper than the very first layer of the skin, the stratum corneum.

“The skin is made to keep stuff out!” he said. “It’s actually really difficult to make molecules small enough to penetrate down into the epidermis and beyond. Mud isn’t going to do that.”

That doesn’t mean that it won’t make you feel like a million muddy bucks, though. At least for a little while.

Are mud baths a recent trend?

It’s hard to pinpoint when bathing in mud became a common practice, but it’s safe to say it’s been around a long time. Native Americans have used mud to treat irritated skin for centuries, and Cleopatra reputedly took trips to the Dead Sea and coated herself with its mud as part of her beauty regimen. Both Napoleon and Beethoven were fond of visiting the Czech spa resorts of Karlovy Vary, which have been espousing the benefits of the region’s hot springs and mud since the 1300s.

How much does a mud bath cost?

Mud bath prices vary considerably based on where you go. Some spas offer mud baths as part of lengthy treatment packages that run into the hundreds of dollars. A low-end price for just a mud bath and spa access might be around $80 or $90, while you might find the related (but distinct) treatment known as a mud wrap for $50 or less. (You can also search Groupon for mud treatments and save big, sometimes 50% or more.)

What kind of mud do they use in mud baths?

mineral rich mud

Unfortunately, you can’t just wait until it rains, writhe around on the ground, and call your front lawn a mud bath spa. The best kind of therapeutic mud isn’t a simple mixture of water and soil—it’s rich in the kind of minerals that are only present under specific geological conditions, such as magnesiumsodium, and sulfur.

The Dead Sea, the European moorlands, certain lakes, and natural hot springs are the places to go for mineral-rich mud. The hot springs of Calistoga, California, compose the mud-bath capital of the United States. The mud there contains volcanic ash, and when mixed with mineral water from the surrounding hot springs, it’s an especially nutritious treat for skin cells.

Yalda attests to this fact. “It’s a double whammy with the mud and the mineral water, [which comes] straight from the geyser,” she said, adding that using fresh mud makes a world of difference. “A spa I used to work at [ordered] volcanic ash to make its mud wraps. Here, it’s a little heavier because of the natural ingredients, the purities in it.”

If you can’t travel, however, you can always get cosmetics or schedule spa treatments that incorporate mineral-rich mud.
