Relief is promised by the Radon thermal treatment in the Gasteiner Healing Caves. The goal is to stabilise the immune system in a natural way and to reduce to the allergy; and to offer a possible alternative to a permanent cortisone therapy and its associated side-effects.
“Numerous studies have demonstrated that the Radon thermal treatment in the body affects the level of the crucial neurotransmitters, cytokines. Pathological reactions in the body are inhibited and a natural balance of the immune system is restored, “says Dr. Bertram Hölzl, Scientific Director of the Gastein Healing Caves. Due to the warm temperatures of between 37.5 and 41.5 degrees Celsius in the Healing Caves, the body’s core temperature also increases and thus raises a more non-allergic and immune-stabilising effect. Moreover, the air in the Healing Caves is completely allergen and dust free, what is felt particularly positively by people with allergies.
“Many patients report that after a few applications in the Healing Caves, a significant reduction and up to complete subsiding of the skin symptoms” reported Dr. Bertram Hölzl. Patients can, after a course of treatment, dispense with cortisone, often for months, and win renewed self-confidence and thus enhanced quality of life from the sight of healthy skin.
