Asthma Treatment

Treatment Options in SalzburgerLand

In recent decades, the number of allergy sufferers has risen dramatically worldwide. In Europe, more than 150 million people suffer from an allergic disease. Also in Austria, allergic diseases, such as allergic asthma or allergic colds have become the most common chronic diseases.

Hohe Tauern Health

“If one believes the forecasts of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, then by 2025 every second European will suffer from some kind of allergy”, says Dr. Arnulf Josef Hartl, Director of the Institute of Ecomedicine of the Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg. In contrast to other chronic diseases, allergies affect more young people.

The Krimml Waterfalls in the Hohe Tauern National Park are not only the biggest waterfalls in Europe with a height of 380 metres in three stages, but also a unique natural remedy for allergies and asthma. The fine spray mist in the vicinity of the waterfalls consists of fine particles, negatively charged, breathable fragments of water (aerosols).  A stay in this unique spray relieves persistent allergy and asthma symptoms.
