Mud is one of five elements of nature having immense impact on the body both in health and sickness.  It can be employed conveniently as a therapeutic agent in Naturopathy treatment as its black colour absorbs all the colours of the Sun and conveys them to the body.  Secondly, as the mud retains moisture for a long time, when applied over the body part it causes cooling. Thirdly, its shape and consistency can be changed easily by adding water. Moreover, it is cheap and easily available. Before use, mud should be dried, powdered and sieved to separate stones, grass particles and other impurities.
