I'm sure we can
all remember at least one time in our young lives when we were out
playing in the mud. It's was fun to get all dirty and make a mess, and
I'm sure that none of us thought of mud as a healing tool at that time,
and maybe now you are still not aware of all its therapeutic healing
properties. But now here is your chance to read all about how good mud
really is for you.
therapeutic properties of Moor Mud have been known for thousands of
years. Its unusual qualities have been recognized by man from the time
of Europe's earliest civilization. A renowned Swiss naturopath of the
middle ages used Moor Mud as a base for preventive medicine. In 120
B.C., the Romans took advantage of the curative powers of Moor Mud and
Renaissance physicians praised it as the Quinta Essentia. Scientific
research has demonstrated that Moor Mud is an effective astringent,
absorbent, ion exchanger, hormone balancer, anti-inflammatory, and cell
regenerator. This mud is rich in minerals, enzymes and vitamins. This
unique natural black magma helps relieve muscular tension, aches, and
cramps, athletic and articular pain. Also it relieves pain from
rheumatism and arthritis, along with easing fatigue and stress while
leaving your skin smoother and brighter.
Where Does Moor Mud Come From? At
the end of the last ice age, as the ice retreated, a fertile valley was
sealed off from the outside world. This valley was quickly flooded and
an instant lake formed, covering all of the vegetation which had been
growing on the floor of the valley. The quick water coverage of the
plants caused a unique biological and geological process. The plant
life was photosynthesized under the water, absorbing solar energy
through chlorophyll. This transformed the plants into solid cellulose.
The plant matter then underwent microbial decomposition to become deep,
rich, black magma.
ages, Moor Mud has been used successfully in spas all over Europe as a
natural preventative medicine because of its curative qualities and
continues to be used today. Modern scientific research has uncovered
new applications and techniques for Moor Mud in many therapeutic
treatments, particularly in the fields of Rheumatology and Dermatology
and will continue to do so well into the future.
