Why do elderly adults benefit from sea water therapy for joint pain?

Not sure: History is full of accounts of "spa therapy" and in the 19th and 20th centuries and even today, many people believe in the healing powers of water therapy, particularly when that water is full of minerals.

I have a 0.7 CM non-obstructing kidney stone at the right side of my kidney. Can it be carried through water therapy? Its been almost a month.

Yet, if stone-related pain is tolerable and the dilation of ureter.Kidney is not severe, few >0.4 cm stones may pass in 1-4 months. ...Read more
