A Balneotherapy: detoxifying Moor Mud products and Saprox antifungal


Torf Moor mud (also known as Balneo peat), is used daily by European medical doctors to restore people's health. This moor mud health spa therapy works from the inside while most therapies only alleviate surface symptoms. Tight sore muscles, joint stiffness and eczema are not surface problems. In order to effectively treat these conditions, the therapy must be penetrating, consistent and full body. A moor mud does this. The benefits from one moor mud bath last for days and may resolve the condition. An increase in flexibility is typically seen after the first treatment.

The natural acids and nutrients in peat are the driving force behind its healing abilities. As one aspect of peat opens the skin pores allowing nutrients in and acids out, another aspect actively draws out lactic acid and metabolic wastes from tissues. Humic substances, abundant in moor mud, are very effective chelators - they bind with toxins such as heavy metals and remove them from the body for effective detox.

After just one treatment, your muscle aches, joint stiffness and skin health may be markedly improved. No drugs. No ointments.

Thanks to its effectiveness, Torf Moor Mud (BALNEO-Peat) has become increasingly popular with spas, and naturopathic practitioners in North America and recently with many Pittsbourgh Steelers players to quickly recover after a game.

Saprox is Torf's natural antifungal clay. Rich in sulphur it helps to treat many types of skin disorders. Toenail fungus, Tinea Versicolor, Psoriasis, Ringworm, persitant foot odor, insect bites ...

Dr. Les Moore,ND - Director, Integrative Medicine,Clifton Springs Hospital, Clifton Springs, NY

"My partner and I massage professional athletes and using Torf Single-foment moor mud detox pack and a matching hydrocollator pack has proved invaluable during their football season. We were able to relieve aches and pains due to the high level of stress put on their bodies at game time, we were able to work the tissue and muscles deeper due to the heat and detoxification of the packs and they experienced less injuries from their tissue becoming healthier."

about Torf Moor Mud        

Moor mud is a therapy quality peat ** - an organic substance, product of natural decomposition of multitudes of plants under special conditions. Unlike other mud used in the spa industry, Torf Moor Mud contains virtually no clay (less then 3%) and consists of organic residue of herbs, flowers and grasses. Over period of thousands of years this residue was transformed into a fine paste that easily dissolves in the water, has unusual concentration of bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids in a molecular form that is moor mud contenteasy for the human skin to absorb. Think of it as a plant extract not from just one plant, but hundreds that reflects environment of Earth 10.000 years ago, without present day pollution. Its uncanny ability to heal, nourish and detoxify has been observed by people for millennia and used scientifically in European Spas for well over a century. It is used not only to beautify, but also to cure multitude of ailments from mobility problems, arthritis, and hormonal imbalance to post surgery recovery and muscle recovery in sport medicine. Its actions are thermo-physical, biochemical, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and natural antibiotics*. Because moor peat is chelator (it binds heavy metal isotopes) it is a very strong natural detoxifier*.

Term BALNEO-Peat refers to therapy grade of our Moor Mud which was tested to exacting standards by the Czech Ministry of Health and was certified for the use for treatment in the spa therapy (balneo-therapy). Thanks to its unique packaging, Torf Moor Mud is supplied in an non-altered natural state, enriched with highly beneficial mineral spring waters and salts of the Karlovy Vary Spa region. Torf Moor Mud has never been processed chemically or thermally to preserve all of it's benefits as recommended by European therapy practice.

Torf Moor Mud (BALNEO-Peat) is a fine grain natural moor mud suitable for therapeutic bath or body treatment, such as wraps, body packs or poultice and even facials. Moor Mud contains numerous active organic substances and excessive heating or inappropriate storage result in loss of therapeutic properties. Heating it to the temperature over 120°F destroys its catalytic properties, and over 175°F causes big loss of therapeutic properties, due to disturbing biological structures. Therefore it is essential to keep Moor Mud naturally fresh and without any preservation to maintain its therapeutic value (such as pasteurization, drying or chemical additives).

Torf has developed a unique packaging to enable our moor to stay naturally fresh by packaging moor mud into 250 mililiter (8.5 oz) sized in plastic tubes, often lovingly called "sausages" by our customers. This size is enough for typical home bath or one full body treatment.

While it might look strange at first, this packaging offers many benefits:

# keeps moor mud naturally fresh and potent for more then a year

# practically eliminates cross-contamination that is common with use of large bucket containers

# the plastic packaging takes less space in land fields than discarded backets or pails

** Moor mud, moor peat, therapy peat, BALNEO-peat are different names for high quality, matured peat that is suitable for hydrotherapy.

about Saprox        

Saprox is a 100% natural anti-fungal clay rich in natural sulphur that offers many benefits to human skin. It is a thousands years old sediment from the bottom of an ancient glacial lake.

Saprox's significant healing effect is inhibiting and preventing growth of fungus and yeast. Saprox contains minerals and substances that are products of the decomposition process without oxygen of organic materials ( humic acids, elements of steroid and hormonal nature). These become an important part of Saprox's complex effect.

The anaerobic condition where Saprox exists prevents parasites, fungus and most bacteria from invading the mud deeming it safe to use on skin without open sores.
