Mud pack therapy is an alternative mode of treatment based on the application of heated mud packs to the entire body or to localized areas such as joints and muscles to provide temporary relief of arthritis pain. The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology (2002; 8:197-203), ventured to determine if this therapy was effective for patients experiencing pain resulting from osteoarthritis of the knee.

Mud baths have a natural anti-inflammatory effect that relaxes one’s muscles, helps with arthritis, and eases body aches and pains.  Furthermore, mud baths can help eliminate toxicity and improve one’s circulation (which is a great side-benefit for diabetics).
