Sometimes stimulating healing can be SIMPLE!
When hot water touches our body, the blood at the surface moves deeper inside. Then when cold water touches, blood is drawn to the surface. This pumping action is beneficial because it moves blood which is detoxifying. The movement brings nutrients to the area and removes toxins. This simple remedy method can be used for many conditions. For example, if you have a sore throat, you can put a cold compress on your throat, and cover it with wool. This will draw out the heat from your sore throat. Your body will move blood to the surface to warm the cold cloth, drawing the pain or “heat” from your throat.
