The ORIGINAL Detox Bath By Louis Kuhne, The 'Father of Detox' Compared to Other Popular Detox Baths
Human beings have been using baths to detoxify and heal since the dawn of civilisation. The term 'Detox Bath' is a modern revival of the ancient detox bath concept and a new buzzword in the health-conscious community, giving birth to a variety of different detox techniques referred to as 'Detox Bath'.
So how does our Original Detox Bath? compare with the most popular detox bath methods available today?
The Original Detox Bath
Unlike all the other detox bath methods listed below, the Original Detox Bath uses ONLY water. Indeed, water alone, with nothing added, can cleanse you inside and help your body eliminate toxins and fat.
The Detox Bath is a form of hydrotherapy and a water detox technique. It is inherent to the human race's behaviour and as natural as breast-feeding. It is an ideal home remedy for anyone seeking to achieve and maintain good health and a slim, fit and toned body, naturally and for free.
Background: Louis Kuhne, an early pioneer of water detox, was a highly respected Naturopathic Doctor of the 1880s in Leipzig, West Germany. He beleived that water has the power to detoxify the body and boost health. He devised a highly effective healing modality based on hydrotherapy and diet awareness. A main pillar of his legacy was the friction sitz bath or Detox Bath which he used as a panacea to address -and successfully cure- a wide variety of health conditions.
The therapeutic effects of the Original Detox Bath are due to the fact that:
- It targets the groin area: One of the highest nerve-concentration areas in the body. Hence its positive effect on mood, sleep and energy.
- This area also houses main arteries, and the technique greatly boosts blood circulation, elimination and digestion.
- It directly stimulates the root chakra, which governs sexual energy and reproductive organs. It helps regulate the menstrual cycle, and has been used by Louis Kuhne to treat impotence. It is also beneficial for low libido and menopausal symptoms.
- It entails application of cold water, which boosts the metabolism and activates the brown fat that enables the body to shed the white fat, which otherwise deposits in various areas on the body, creating bulges.
|Please note: the original Kuhne Detox Bath does not entail the use of Epsom salts, ginger, clay or any other ingredients, except water.|

Epsom Salts Detox Bath
Epsom Salts baths (or Hydrated Magnesium Sulphate) seem to be one of the most popular forms of detoxifying baths. They are cheap, readily available and help replenish the body's magnesium reserves.
Magnesium is an important alkaline mineral. It is actually the 4th most important mineral in the body. It is better absorbed through the skin. Today's lifestyle and diets seem to contribute to magnesium deficinecy and an Epsom Salts bath is an effective way of replenishing this essential mineral with many benefits, which include:
- Boosting circulation
- Reducing inflammation
- Easing hypertension
- Improving oxygen use
- Encouraging minerals absorption
However, although the Epsom Salts bath provides great benefits, its action in terms of directly detoxifying the body remains questionable.
How to take an Epsom Salts Bath: Epsom Salt can be used on its own or in combination with essential oils, apple cider vinegar or baking soda (1 cup). Dilute 2 cups of Epsom Salts in a bathtub of hot water. Add a few drops of lavender, rose or tea tree oil and soak for 40 minutes. This bath can also be taken with Himalayan or Sea salt.
Ginger Detox Bath
A few years ago we published a very popular article about the benefits of the ginger bath and its amazing power to rid the body of toxins through sweating. Throughout history, human beings have resorted to various forms of sweating to maintain good health and eliminate toxins and impurities from the body. For those who have no access to a sauna or steam bath, the ginger bath can provide very similar benefits.
Clay Detox Bath
Clay has been used for centuries to treat various conditions. Some clays, such as Bentonite Clay can effectively suck out toxins through the pores of the skin and are amazingly effective detox aids. In his book The Clay Cure : Natural Healing from the Earth Ran Knishinsky writes, "Because of clay's excellent drawing effect, the clay has the power to literally pull toxicities through the pores of the skin in the bath."
How To Take a Clay Bath: Scatter 2 cups of Bentonite Clay powder like Redmond Trading Company Clay or Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing into a very hot water bath as it's running. To avoid lumps, mix 1 part clay to 8 parts water in a container with a lid and shake vigorously. Allow the mix to sit for a couple of hours, shake again and pour into the bathtub and mix with the rest of the hot water. Submerge as much of your body as possible in the water with the temperature as hot as you can stand it, for about 20 minutes.
Please note: Though the bentonite clay bath is a very effective detox aid, it can get quite messy and could clog the bathtub's drain.
The Detoxifying Benefits of Cold Water
Similar to the action of the Detox Bath, ice packs and cold compresses, for example, at first stimulate the heart and breathing rates. They elevate blood pressure and tone muscles.
Recent research validates this concept and confirms the benefits of using cold water or ice to facilitate fat and toxin elimination. Dr Joseph Mercola, an online natural health expert, states that:
"Research suggests that calorie combustion in brown fat may be of significance for your metabolism, and brown fat is effectively activated by cold temperatures. In one recent study, men burned more calories and lost more white fat, the kind that causes obesity, when exposed to ice cold temperatures"
|Recent studies have demonstrated that cold showers, contrast showers and other types of cold water and ice therapy, can help boost the body's fat-burning ability by activating the brown fat.|
For this reason, ice cold showers are recommended for slimming. When the body is exposed to cold temperatures, it will burn fat and energy to warm itself up. Because toxins are known to nestle in fat cells, this action greatly encourages toxin elimination.
Stress, anxiety, anger and all negative emotions release toxins in the body. More
