NEW YEAR’S DIP
by Herbalist Wendy Wilson
I’m not talking about a secret family recipe for party dip nor am I talking about jumping naked in icy-cold water as a New Year’s tradition. I’m talking about something that is more beneficial than a New Year’s resolution. I’m talking about a natural therapy that has been used in Europe for hundreds of years to remove toxins quickly from the body. So, let’s take a look at this old therapy and who knows, you may want to make your New Year’s tradition.
For centuries baths have been a part of our culture for socializing, cleansing and for detoxification. Throughout history, baths have been well documented to help the physical body; however the right bath can also relieve our system of what is known as tissue memory. What is tissue memory? Emotions and memories of past experiences, which can be both good and bad, are stored in body cells. Much of what is understood about memory involves the brain and more study is being done on body cell memory outside of the brain. If immune system proteins can be in the brain, why can’t memory cells be in the rest of the body?
According to new research, every cell in our bodies has a memory of what has happened to us. These cells can hold memories of symptoms such as illness and physical or emotional trauma. Some memories can be so hurtful that they become submerged only to resurface later.
CELL MEMORY TRIGGERS
How many times have you been reminded of an event just by a touch, hearing a song or poem, smelling an aroma, seeing a sight or hearing the rain? If this has happened to you, most times you experience the memory first and then any physical sensation (discomfort, pain or pleasure) immediately afterward. This happens when the cells release memories in chemical form. There seems to be a deeper connection then science first thought between the mind and spirit and chemical reactions are coded and stored in our cells. More research into cell memory therapy is being conducted to help our military and civilians with post-traumatic stress disorder.
It is widely known among European spas to use special baths to detoxify the body and that this process can trigger emotional reactions. A detox-bath can release emotional baggage. This kind of therapy can be very beneficial for substance abusers where the submerged emotions are often the cause of their abuse. The Herbal Detox Bath listed below has been used to help folks with nicotine, caffeine, drug and alcohol dependence. It fast-tracks the toxins out of the body and removes the desire to use those substances.
HERBAL DETOX (excerpt from The Power Herbs book by Herbalist Wendy Wilson)
Before you start your bath, make a gallon of herbal tea. Use yarrow, peppermint or ginger root. Let the tea steep 15 to 20 minutes and keep the tea hot. Next, get a hot bath started add hot herbs of ginger, cayenne and mustard to the water. Use ½ cup of each herb. You can put your herbs in cotton bags and let them float in the water. Dunk them up and down like tea bags to distribute the herbs. While the herbs are penetrating the bath water, apply a whole jar of Vaseline® to your private areas (anus, external vaginal area and nipples). This will protect mucus membranes from the hot herbs. Get in the tub and have someone bring you hot herbal tea made of peppermint, yarrow or ginger root. The tea will help you sweat and your white blood cells will do their job and gobble up toxins. You must drink at least six cups of this tea during the 30 minutes you are in the bath. This will also help the body to regulate a fever, and the liquid will help keep the fever wet. If the bath water cools off, add more hot water. Keep the water as hot as you can stand it. While in the bath, submerge yourself as much a possible up to the neck. It is recommended that you have someone to assist you with this treatment. They can add hot water to the bath, bring you tea and administer herbs in case of fainting or cramping occurs. If you become light headed, your assistant can give you a little liquid cayenne to avoid fainting. If you experience any cramping or muscle spasms, your assistant can give you a little liquid lobelia. You can expect some coughing and shaking. The herbs open up the airway and increase nerve activity. At this stage of the therapy emotional baggage can come to the surface as the person purges these memories from the body. Substance abusers also release chemical toxins along with the emotions which created their dependency.
NEXT STEP TO DETOX BATH (Adding a cold sheet)
The cold sheet treatment is recommended after the hot herb bath. Prior to getting into the tub, you should put a large sheet to soak in a large basin of ice water for thirty minutes. Get the sheet as cold as possible by using at least 25 pounds of ice. After you’ve soaked in the herb bath for 30 minutes, get out of the tub and have your assistant wrap the cold sheet around you. You can wring a little of the water out of the sheet before applying. Pin the sheet in place and go to bed. Make sure the sheet covers the feet and tuck it in. For added detoxification you can apply a garlic and red clover paste to the bottom of the feet and pin the sheet in place. Cover your head with a cotton cap and apply several blankets and go to sleep for the night. You will feel warm and relaxed. Don’t worry about going to the bathroom. Protect the bed by using a rubber mattress pad or rubber sheet and use some old sheets you don’t care about. Make sure you use cotton sheets. Natural fibers allow the skin to breathe. You can expect to run a 102-degree fever. In the morning, rinse off with a solution of water and apple cider vinegar and shower as usual. Don’t be surprised if the sheets are a myriad of colors. These are toxic residues that were released by your body. When using this therapy it is important to use temperatures as hot and as cold as you can stand it. If you suffer from a liver condition, recent stroke or heart attack, you may want to put off this treatment until you are stronger. As with most therapies, please seek advice from a licensed medical physician before using any treatment, remedy or therapy.
PREPING BEFORE BATH THERAPY
Before you use bath therapy to detoxify the body it is recommended to eat a cleaner diet 24 hours beforehand. Eating sulfur foods such as; garlic, onion, beans, broccoli, cabbage and eggs will help the liver during the detox process. Fruit and vegetable juices are also supportive of the system while purging toxins. Abstain from alcohol prior to this therapy. Eat light one hour prior to the therapy and never do bath therapy on an empty stomach. Wait at least an hour after a bath therapy to eat. Drink plenty of fluids and get rest is also important when doing bath therapy.
