Mannupothichil, an ayurvedic treatment, is an ancient method of diagnosis using a paste of special mud and some herbal extracts. In this treatment, the entire body is covered with the mud paste. The patient is seated in the sunlight for one hour and a mineral bath is given. After the treatment, certain dormant diseases, and fractures that had occurred in the past can be diagnosed, watching the color changes on the skin.
