Fortunately, we live in an age that is rediscovering the value of natural practices for therapeutic purposes. As we often hear, these kinds of remedies, if chosen wisely, appropriately, and under the guidance of a doctor, can give surprising results. This is the case, for example, with the ‘whey bath’. An ancient practice, handed down from our grandparents, lowland farmers/breeders skilled in ‘intelligent reuse’, children of an era when the word ‘waste’ had no place in vocabularies.
We are talking about a natural therapy increasingly used to treat bone and muscle ailments: osteoporosis, carpal tunnel inflammation, arthrosis, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, etc. It is also used to aid the healing of fractures during treatment periods.
But why does whey have such important healing properties?
The warm temperatures at which it is presented (around 40 degrees) are soothing and therapeutic, especially for muscle tissue. The high amount of calcium aids the treatment of bone diseases of various kinds. Finally, it is also prescribed as a purifying drink for the intestines.
At the Caseificio Bio Reggiani, we have been granting free of charge, for about 5 years now, to those who request it, the possibility of taking a bath in the whey obtained in the production process of our organic Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
To date, we have had more than 100 ‘patients’ benefit from this ancient remedy.
Every morning between 8 a.m. and 9.30 a.m. (when the serum has just been extracted), the liquid has the most interesting characteristics (a more intense heat and higher acidity) to offer therapeutic baths.
This story teaches us once again that anything (or almost anything) can prove its usefulness, even in areas we would not have imagined. The re-use of whey to help treat muscle and bone diseases also becomes part of a Circular Economy system, which we have been inspired by for years now.
