Many animals and humans benefit from Raindrop Treatments because they help decrease inflammation and detoxify. Because so many diseases cause inflammation, decreased circulation, and toxin build-ups in the body, the Raindrop is beneficial. The Raindrop Treatment decreases pain including arthritis pain, decrease itchiness, improve the body’s immune strength and decreases anxiety. Other benefits include improving the body’s circulation, digestion and respiratory systems. It is an excellent adjunct to many other treatments and can also be used as follow up.
