Quick Reference

Some health farms offer body wraps, a form of mud treatment, as a means of reducing weight. It is claimed that wrapping the body in bandages and covering them with mud encourages weight loss by drawing ‘toxins’ out of fatty tissue. In truth, the body wraps are likely to increase sweating and any weight loss experienced is probably temporary.
