Constitutional Hydrotherapy is by far the most effective therapy for stimulating the immune system and achieving total body detoxification. It has been used for years to detoxify heavy metal exposure, pesticide/herbicide toxicity, and the daily toxic buildup of improper diet and lifestyle. Dr. Carroll combined hot and cold contrast towel applications (the Father Kneipp water cure) with various electrical physical therapy stimulations to achieve a remarkable healing therapy. OG called this a "contitutional hydrotherapy" because it changed the very constitution of each individual cell. This means that each cell in your body is stimulated to dump waste products, to utilize nutrition more efficiently, and to work more effectively. You can rebuild your metabolism and regenerate your health with this amazing therapy.
Studies recently done at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and Windrose Clinic determined that the constitutional hydrotherapy will raise a low basal body temperature, moderate low or high blood sugar, and moderate high or low blood pressure. Remarkably, an increase in white blood cell count by 10,000 more cells on average in circulation is seen within 2 to 8 hours after only 1 hydrotherapy. This is a rapid way to boost your immune function and fight any infection - even the antibiotic resistant bacteria.
This simplistic therapy utilizing alternating hot and cold towel application to the chest and to the back with a series of sine wave or diathermy current is utilized for acute infections such as sinusitis, whooping cough, pneumonia as well as chronic conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, irritable bowel, Crohn's disease, or arthritis.
At the Windrose Clinic we are proud to provide the constitutional hydrotherapy in its original form as Dr. Carroll instructed. This therapy will be individualized for your needs or health concerns as both doctors first diagnose your status by listening to your heart and digestive tones with the stethoscope.
