The kelp wrap is a newer procedure that is now part of a complete nutritional balancing program. It is basically a way to renourish a body much faster than just feeding a person well.
How long. Many people can use kelp wraps daily for up to one year. After that, very few people need them because the body has been remineralized well enough that simply eating correctly will maintain and continue to improve mineral nutrition.
KELP WRAP PROCEDURE
Where to do it. The procedure is a bit messy. Therefore, the best places to do the wrap are either sitting in a bathtub, or perhaps spreading a plastic shower curtain on the bathroom or other floor to catch the kelp that will inevitably fall on the floor.
THE KELP BODY WRAP
Kelp can also be used as a body wrap to allow a person to absorb more minerals, perhaps to absorb other phytonutrients, and to help remove some mercury and copper through the skin. It works! So far, women seem to need it more than men, for some unknown reason. Perhaps it is because women are higher in copper, so they benefit more than men. This procedure and the kelp bath may particularly help those with electromagnetic field sensitivity or EMF sensitivity.
Also, most people can benefit a lot from this procedure when beginning a nutritional balancing program. Most need the procedure every day for 6 to 12 months.
One can wrap the entire body, which is best but is somewhat messy. One can also wrap just the feet and legs. This is not quite as good, but it is less messy and can allow a person to move around more easily with the wrap on.
1. Kelp. For one wrap or one bath, you will need about 1 pound of powdered kelp. Brands that are acceptable include Frontier Herbs, Starwest Herbs and Monterrey Bay Herb Company (www.herbco.com) in the USA, which is the least costly, I believe. Other brands of powdered kelp are probably okay, as well, but these are definitely very good.
2. Water. You will also need about 4-10 cups of water. You can use tap water, spring water or distilled water.
3. Whole Wheat flour. You will need a few tablespoons of flour to make the kelp wrap more sticky.
Preparing the wrap:
1. First bring about 4-10 cups of water to a boil. Then turn down the flame to simmer.
2. Slowly add about 1 pound of kelp powder. Stir it in slowly to prevent it from burning.
3. Let the mixture simmer for one hour. Check on it from time to time, stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot and burn. Break up any lumps of kelp. Add a little more water if it gets too dry. The cooking is important to make the kelp more yang and to kill any bacteria and other micro-organisms that may be mixed with the kelp.
4. Add a little whole wheat flour at the end of the cooking to make the kelp more sticky so it will stick better to your skin. Usually, about 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour are all that are needed.
Applying the kelp. This is a little messy, but hopefully you can make it fun. Undress and apply the kelp all over the skin. You can wear a bikini bathing suit if you prefer. You may need to bring a space heater into the bathroom to keep the bathroom nice and warm.
To make it easy to reuse the kelp later, spread a plastic shower curtain liner on the bathroom floor and stand or sit on it. You may also apply the kelp while sitting in a bathtub, or lying or sitting on a towel on the floor.
If you plan to do coffee enemas while you have the kelp on your skin, do not apply the kelp to the buttocks and back of the hips. Also, do not apply it to the elbows, knees, and underarms as it will not stay on very well. Once the kelp is spread on the skin, let it stay there for at least 2 hours and up to 3 hours.
If the kelp dries on your skin, it will be hard to recycle and reuse it. So it may be better to apply a thicker layer that will remain moist for the two to three hours.
If you need to move around, of just for cleanliness, you can put clear food wrap over the kelp, wrapping it around your legs and trunk. A simpler method is to buy some cheap, plastic “body bags” or lightweight plastic jump suits used in clean rooms. Slip into one of these and you can also walk around without leaving a trail of kelp wherever you go.
Coffee enemas, the Roy Masters meditation and red lamp therapy with a kelp wrap. This is a very efficient use of time! Spread a vinyl shower curtain liner on the floor of the bathroom, or on a yoga mat, or wherever you do coffee enemas. Apply the kelp first. Do not put kelp on your large joints and buttocks.
Then lie down and do one or preferably two coffee enemas back to back, as this is more powerful. Do the Roy Masters meditation, while doing the coffee enemas. The meditation is definitely easier with the coffee inside you. You may also shine a reddish heat lamp on your abdomen while doing the wrap and the enemas. The light will not penetrate the kelp too well, but it is still somewhat helpful.
Doing two enemas back to back will take about one hour or a little more. After finishing the second coffee enema, relax with the kelp on you for another hour. You can continue to meditate, or you can do some work or other activity such as talking on the phone or reading.
After 2 to three hours, brush off the kelp or use a spatula to collect it. Put it in a container, and place it in the refrigerator to reuse it the next day.
Reusing the kelp. If you sit or lie down on a plastic shower curtain, you should be able to collect most of the kelp. If you wish, add some water to it so it is not too thick, and store it in a container in the refrigerator until the next time you do the wrap.
To reuse the kelp, put it back on the stove and warm it up to near body temperature. You can boil it quickly to kill germs if it is contaminated or sweaty. However, you do not need to cook it more. You can reuse the kelp up to 20 times.
