About this course

Naturopathic Hydrotherapy is one of our most useful tools to modify parasympathetic/ sympathetic neural balance and most of our autonomic functions. It is remarkably effective in a wide range of congestive, inflammatory, hormonal and neurological conditions. Dr Kate Broderick has prepared a three-part webinar series on this old naturopathic practice that is in some danger of being lost.

Dr Broderick uses hydrotherapy extensively and effectively in her practice for many acute and chronic diseases. Naturopathic Hydrotherapy utilises several means of applying hot and cold water to specific areas of the body. Temperature changes result in changes in neural function, elicits endocrine hormonal effects and alters blood flow to the extremities and the core so is very useful in many conditions. In this series, she will explain the physiology of hydrotherapy, how to appropriately use hydrotherapy in your clinic and importantly, which techniques to use in which conditions.

The hot and cold water applications may involve foot and hand baths, wrapping, saunas and steam baths and full or partial immersion baths. Naturopathic Hydrotherapy is a cheap, safe and very effective way to boost your clinical outcomes for many of the most common presentations patients are seeing you for.
