(NaturalNews) Therapeutic baths are a simple, inexpensive and effective way to keep the body and spirit in top form. Radioactive poisons, heavy metals and other hazardous substances are safely removed from the system without overburdening internal organs or triggering an uncomfortable healing crisis. Stress and tension are relieved as well -- providing yet another health advantage. An enjoyable and potent therapy, restorative baths are an excellent addition to any healing protocol.

Slow down and soak

Heartily recommended by Hippocrates, a healing dip is a time-honored practice. As the father of medicine, he believed the type of water, whether fresh, subterranean or salt, held specific and unique therapeutic properties. Today, the idea of using clay, Dead Sea or Epson salt in the bath reflects the ancient practice Hippocrates so warmly endorsed -- while counteracting a modern toxin load he never could have of imagined.

Detoxify radiation, heavy metals and more

Detoxification is the darling of any natural healing regime. Where radiation is concerned, it is an absolute necessity. One of the best methods to remove radiation from the system utilizes therapeutic baths. The trick is submerge as much of the body as possible. Dr. Hazel Parcells recommends the following:

In a very hot bath, dissolve one pound of baking soda along with one pound of sea salt. Soak until the water becomes cool -- about 20-25 minutes. When finished, do not rinse or shower for four to eight hours. The idea is to keep the salt on the skin for an extended period of time. For severe symptoms of radiation poisoning, one bath per day is recommended.

Another healing bath involves clay. Acting like a sponge, the clay draws radioactive elements, heavy metals and poisons out of the body via the skin. French green clay, calcium bentonite or Jordan clay are good choices. Just make sure to use a high quality grade that is free of contaminants and low in aluminum. To prepare the bath, dissolve two cups of clay in hot water. Submerge the body and remain in the bath until the water cools, at least 20 minutes. Afterward, scrub with a loofah and wash well to remove any impurities remaining on the skin.

And there's more. In "10 Baths That Heal," Brigitte Mars explores the following variations:

Apple cider vinegar - Draws toxins out of the body while relieving sore muscles, sunburn and itchy skin. Naturally deodorizes while providing antiseptic and antifungal properties.

Cold and flu relief - Calms the deep muscle ache of viral infections. Choose from these additions: Epsom salt, ginger root, mustard seed powder, pine needles, marjoram or thyme leaves. Use a combination of several or a single selection.

Oatmeal - Place half a cup of oat flour in a bath bag and submerge in water. Soothes dermatitis, poison ivy and irritated skin while easing high blood pressure and stress.

Baking soda - Dissolve one pound per bath. Alkalizing and detoxifies. Quiets allergic reactions, eczema, chicken pox, hives, itchy skin, insect bites, sunburn and fungal infections.

Stress soother - Catnip, clary sage, chamomile, lavender, hops, neroli and rose buds are all excellent herbs to reduce tension. Fresh or dried flowers as well as essential oils can be used.

Additional tips

Create a bath bag to hold herbs or other healing ingredients by placing a handful in a washcloth and secure with a rubber band. Also, since we want to remove toxins (not absorb more), a chlorine filter for bathwater is indispensable. And don't forget the natural latex rubber duck.
