My husband and I like the benefits of hot tubs as well as enjoying the sensation so we look out for them while on vacation. It leaves you feeling relaxed and lightly massaged, and is always fun to do if you go with friends. You could sit and chat all day in them, sipping cool drinks.

Hydrothermal therapy works by manipulating the body’s sense of hot and cold. We are interested in the hot aspect of the therapy. Nerves beneath the surface of our skin are stimulated with the hot water and the water pressure from the jets, relieve stress, aid circulation, sooth aching body parts and help systems that we don’t think about, such as the immune system, digestion, and even hormone production which we could do with as we age.

Do you take Ibuprofen often for pain relief? Have you read what the side effects of Ibuprofen are? Would it surprise you to know that long term use can cause high blood pressure, blood clots, fluid retention (edema), heart attacks, heart failure, over-working of the liver, and kidney damage?

The side effects of ibuprofen that I particularly …

Did you know that the Brits have the best asparagus in the world? I have a “wisp” of it in my garden which only serves as an ornament. It is the asparagus racemosus species I think because it’s blooming now in this month of August.

(See my snap to the left)

It can be quite pricey, but that’s understandable as it has to be hand picked.

Presuming that you would also want to clean the colon naturally too, I will discuss briefly the benefits of a colon cleanse and what herbs you can use in combination to do that.

To begin with, our intestines which include the colon is where we absorb the minerals and other nutrients from our food. As food passes through and is processed, some of it may get trapped in pockets of the colon. At this stage the moisture has been removed turning it into a sticky mucous.
