It’s no surprise that there’s a slew of alternative wellness methods that don’t really do what they claim. Frankly, there’s just a lot of bunk out there, and it’s often difficult to tell the nonsense from the good stuff.
Here’s a quick rundown of a few honest and effective natural health treatments.
Lymph massage 
This practice has been shown in many studies to be truly effective. So much is accomplished with a finger pressure of just .5 to 8 ounces per square.
You may not know it, but your body contains something called the lymphatic system, which is part of your cardiovascular system. The lymphatic system contains a plethora of lymph nodes and vessels, responsible for circulating lymph. What is lymph? In a way, it’s one of your body’s many cleansing mechanisms. It absorbs dead cells, bacteria, viruses, and other toxins that could wreak havoc in your body.
Unfortunately, lymph doesn’t always flow properly — it sometimes gets blocked. Through lymph massage’s gentle touch, lymph can be made to flow freely again — continuing to do its necessary job.
Mud Baths
How can making yourself dirty do anything whatsoever for your health? Perhaps you might think this treatment would be doing more harm than good, but this isn’t so. Mud baths don’t use any old dirt – this mud often contains rich ingredients like volcanic ash, and clay — the magic is in the minerals, really.
Heated to about 100 degrees, the mineral-rich soil has been shown to have many anti-inflammatory properties, and on top of that, it’s been touted as a great remedy for itchy and irritated skin.
Far-infrared sauna
While a traditional sauna heats the room, which then heats your body, a far-infrared sauna uses infrared light that goes directly to your body — it doesn’t need to first warm the air around you. This wellness method is particular good for the elderly or for those who generally don’t do well with high-temperature traditional saunas.
Several studies have shown that using infrared saunas might be beneficial in treating ongoing health issues like high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis.
