Dr. Liz Cavin likes to utilize a naturopathic modality called Hydrotherapy to help support and stimulate the body’s innate healing process. Hydrotherapy is simply the use of water as a healing agent. The hydrotherapy technique Dr. Liz Cavin likes to recommend to patients is alternating hot and cold water that is applied directly to the body.
It is used to help stimulate a patient’s circulation and the activity of the immune cells (white blood cells). Because it stimulates the immune system it has an ability to help the body heal on a deep level. Hydrotherapy is advantageous because it is easy to do at home, it is inexpensive and typically water is easily accessible.
