Detox is a main buzzword in the global alternative health community.
More and more health-conscious individuals, aware of the toxins we are subjected to on a daily basis, are seeking means to effectively support their body’s elimination and detoxification processes.
We realise today that various fumes, colourants and additives in food, pesticides, as well as food excesses and undigested organic matter, all create excess deposits in the body, undermining our health in the long term. Serious and less serious diseases are now commonly attributed to toxicity.
However, detox is not a new concept, nor is it a fad. Louis Kuhne of Leipzig, Germany -referred to by his contemporaries as a 'Genius in the art of healing'- was an early pioneer of toxin awareness and the importance of detoxifying, back in the 1880s.
Kuhne was a highly reputed and respected naturopath and healer. He was one of the pioneers of modern Naturopathy -or Nature Cure- in 19th century Germany.
Main Nature Cure advocates and practitioners, like Vincent Priessnitz, Sebastien Kniepp, Benedict Lust, Louis Kuhne and others, unequivocally demonstrated that good health could be restored and maintained through different water application techniques, at varying temperatures. Nature Cure became synonymous with water cure.
Kuhne created a unique hydrotherapy panacea, which he successfully used to heal a wide spectrum of diseases. His approach is based on the premise that all diseases have one and the same cause: An accumulation of waste matter and toxins in the body. ‘The Unity of Diseases’ became the founding principle of his cure methods.
He developed the Friction Sitz Bath, or the Original Detox Bath method you’re about to learn in these pages, specifically to help his patients eliminate waste matter and toxins and recover good health.
France Guillain, a naturopath, journalist, author, sailor, physicist and mathematician, more recently revived Kuhne’s Friction Sitz Bath. She refers to it as the ‘Derivative Bath’ and highlights its method and benefits in 2 books published in France in 1995 and 2007, respectively.
The Original Detox Bath is a hydrotherapy method, based on Kuhne’s Friction Sitz Bath and Guillain’s Derivative Bath.
It’s a simple, fast, effective and free method that encourages your body -through the application of cold water- to eliminate fat, and the toxins that thrive within it.
The effectiveness of this method is irrevocably confirmed by recent studies, which demonstrate that cold showers, contrast showers and other types of cold water and ice therapy, can help boost the body's fat-burning ability.
“I recently read a wonderful e-book called Detox Bath, a book I recommend- the book is about, enhancing your over all health and well being, using only water. Detox Bath is very helpful, informative and easy to follow. It brings to mind, what we sometimes forget, the amazing healing abilities of water and how it can help our body naturally.”
