I would first want to looking ito the first two things that popped into my head, and of course other things that might come up in research. I see there are bottles of peat that can be bought.

there may be some spas that offer this yet still, same questions, even if it's their plumbing, it will still affect neighbors and the whole plumbing line.

There are many other ways of helping the body maintain a balanced pH besides soaking in mud &plant matter dug up from who knows where, containing who knows what: I would be concerned about potential microbes in it - as well as problems it might create with the pipes / plumbing. It's not likely going to go down the drain and just disappear.

Oh no... I'm sorry. I guess I shouid have added... The clinic I go to does them and I get a big discount. They recommended it for my situation. I was more wondering if those who've tried it liked it. If they felt any better.

I'd still want to see that suff under a microscope. I do not trust that there may not be various kinds of mictrobes in there that I would not want on my skin and uro-gentital tissue.

How do they guarantee that it is disease free? Or irritant free / chemical free?

And, still, the municipal sewage system can't be happy about a business flushing mud down the pipes. I would just have too many questions.

So many substances can be absorbed through the skin. I recall that tannic acids have healing properties?

Tannic acid from oak leaves is said to stem bleeding. I remember reading an anecdote from long ago, wild animals gravitating to fallen oak leaves when wounded.

quote:
What is tannic acid? A tannin (also known as vegetable tannin or tannic acid) is an astringent, bitter plant polyphenolic compound. Tannins have been attributed with antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic effects.

The term tannin (from tanna, an Old High German word for oak or fir tree, as in tannenbaum) refers to the use of wood tannins from oak in tanning animal hides for leather; hence the words "tan" and "tanning" for the treatment of leather. Besides tanning, there are several other survival uses.

quoted from here, there's a little more info at the link:


https://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/survivalist/survival-skills-5-survival-uses-tannic-acid/


Sounds interesting... Someone living in a coastal area may find benefit from a dip in the ocean, and someone landlocked with access to peaty bog water may find there are healing benefits from that.


This post itself caught my attention, immediately all I could think of was "The Mysterious Bog People," mummified humans found in peat bogs of Northern Europe (and more in peat bogs worldwide).

For anyone who might be interested, more info here:
