I recently underwent a peat bath series to experience it for myself, and start an intensive detoxification program. Many people can benefit from these baths, as they stimulate the immune system, increase the detoxification pathways of the body, and help to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems which can be upset by stress. We often prescribe it f0r patients with immune or toxicity problems, but most people can benefit, please see the list below for the many issues that peat baths and detoxification can help.
While you are in the tub, we monitor vitals and temperature, and make sure you are comfortable and hydrated.
When you reach the desired temperature, we help transfer you out of the bath, wrap you in a cold sheet, cover you with wool blankets and let your body return to normal temperature. This is a deeply relaxing time on the table and many people experience profound and healing emotional experiences or a deep and regenerative meditative state, hence this is a mind and body therapy.
All of our cancer patients are recommended to do a three week intensive where they have a bath daily to stimulate their immune systems with an artificial fever. We ran my blood labs during the therapy, and we could see higher circulating White Blood Cells, which are the cells that search out and kill infections and cancer. Our peat baths use peat from the Czech Republic, which detoxifies and nourishes the body.
