As time goes on one fimds that medication although being sometimes necessary the side and long term effects are sometimes somewhat counterproductive.

A good soak and some old fashioned epsom salts or a thermal pool or a hottub of radox can do wonders for the bones.
Whenever I can I visit one of the thermal pools that dot this wonderful country of ours. Unfortunately they are not as cheap to visit as one was and I suspect that the last of them that was free and where you could dig a hole and soak were up on the side of Tongariro at a place called keheeta springs or some such, better that Tikitiri but now for outside my ability to acess and Hot water beach where you could, when the tide was out, go out to the point and dig a hole o in the sand, The combination of hot salt water and thermal minerals is heavenly.
They all seem to have now gone somewhat commercial aimed at tourist dollars alas.

some stuff an bout the benifits and old time medicine of the Maori.

Centuries Of Healing Power


For centuries, indigenous Maori travelled to Waiwera on New Zealand’s Hibiscus Coast to heal themselves in Waiwera’s therapeutic warm waters.

Maori would immerse themselves in holes dug along the idyllic beachfront and line them with branches for padding. Caressing mineral water would then gently surround them, magically materialising from the earth below.

Translated from Maori, Waiwera means simply ‘hot water’ but it was so revered that many referred to it as ‘te rata’ which translates as ‘the doctor’. The special healing powers of Waiwera water came to be known far and wide. People travelled to the resort by horse or steamer in the early days, disembarking at a man-made jetty. Many guests staying at the hotel built at Waiwera in 1875 by Robert Graham were so amazed at the results they enjoyed after taking the waters at Waiwera that they were moved to write testimonial letters, such as these that follow:
