Tap Into The Healing Powers of Water
The use of water is taken for granted many times. This article shows how can water be used to make ourselves feel better and to ease the symptoms of colds, pneumonia, and bronchitis.
Water is something we all have easy access to and tend to take for granted, but it can be a convenient, inexpensive way to make ourselves feel better.
Try this invigorating treatment to help banish or ease the symptoms of colds, pneumonia, and bronchitis. After a hot bath or shower, dip a terry washcloth or towel into cold water, about 50-60 degrees F. Wrap the cloth around your fist and use it to rub your other arm vigorously, starting at the fingers and working up to your shoulder. Switch the cloth to your other fist and repeat the rubbing on your opposite arm. Then move on to your feet, legs, abdomen and chest. Dry off with a towel, using the same vigorous movements. Skin should be pink, and you should feel totally refreshed.
An extra benefit of this treatment is the exfoliating of the top layer of dull, dead skin cells, which will make you look as well as feel better! To improve circulation and increase the exfoliation benefit, add sea-salt to the cloth as you rub.
The water from your tap can also be used to treat insomnia, menopausal hot flashes, and agitation. For these conditions, try a 'neutral' bath, immersing yourself in a tub of water slightly below body temperature. Soak for about 20 minutes, adding water occasionally to maintain the temperature, if necessary.
