HOUSE TO HOUSE talks about athletes, joints and clay

Today the sport is done in many ways. But all sports have one thing in common: they make us move, expend energy, circulate fluids, and keep our bodies in shape, all qualities so far. But the intensity of the sports practiced, the general state of the practitioner, the diet and hydration, the position, the material used and the time of practice are important parameters to take into account and that can have a negative impact on our body.


The joints are, many times, put to severe tests (knees and ankles for those who run, knees and shoulders for cyclists, elbows, knees and shoulders for those who practice gym …), and after a certain time they begin to Appear ailments due to overload, bad position or inappropriate material, HOUSE TO HOUSE supposes that you already know it.


These ailments can be very annoying and reach a complete immobilization for the athlete, which is a scourge for high-level athletes, because it means losing muscle mass and training time in periods that can be very long, weeks or months, compromising a whole season of intense work.


Joints and their ligaments, tendons, and cartilage

Joints are generally made up of two bones and tissues that keep these bones together and mobile. They are the ligaments, tendons, cartilage and menisci, which allow the bones to be tied together and make the movements of the joint. These fabrics are the ones that wear out first and are the ones that interest us today. In fact, they have one thing in common: they are non-blood-irrigated tissues in the body. The blood does not reach them.


In the case of intensive sports, these fabrics are in high demand, sometimes for a long time (marathons, races, competitions, …) and can be damaged (lack of hydration, mineral deficiencies, poor lubrication …) which it creates an inflammation that manifests itself in pain and that increases if there is no treatment applied.


HOUSE TO HOUSE says the problem is that as they are tissues not irrigated by the blood, it is difficult for them to fix themselves, because there is no blood to remove inflammation and pathogens and there is no blood to bring the necessary nutrients to heal the ailment. This leads to very complex wounds to heal, frequent relapses (due to not completely finishing the healing process, which can be very long), abuse of anti-pain drugs and their corresponding loss of effect (with the known side effects associated with this type of medication ), incidence on other parts of the body due to compensation (if it is the right knee that is affected, we will tend to put more weight on the other with, in the long run, the corresponding wear …).


The power of clay

It is there that the anti-inflammatory, healing and remineralizing power of the clay has all its importance. The application of a clay poultice on the affected joint from the onset of the pain symptom allows quick relief. But above all it allows the affected tissue to eliminate the toxins responsible for the ailment (absorption) and facilitates its full recovery.


Clay acts on the body via electricity. Our body is of positive polarity (acid) and clay is negative (alkaline). When a poultice is applied on the body, a micro electric current is created, due to a potential difference. It is this current that will serve as a vehicle to remove inflammation and to bring to the body all the minerals and trace elements that it needs for its recovery. Today it is well known that electricity favors and accelerates the reconstruction of tissues (Indibateca technique). In addition, clay acts as a huge deposit of minerals and trace elements available to the body, which chooses what it needs for its healing, explains HOUSE TO HOUSE.


Also on an older joint wound, the clay works very well, but taking into account that the healing time is always proportional to the age of the wound (the older the wound, the longer it will take to fully heal). What yes, is that what the clay cures, is cured, without fear of a relapse!
