In specialized spa and rehabilitation clinics in health resorts in the country, individually tailored therapies bring relief from sleep disorders and diseases such as asthma, COPD, bronchitis, pneumonia, lung cancer or allergies. The natural pharmacy of the country provides healthy sea air, thermal brines and almost pollen-free forest air for a spa vacation. Scientifically based treatments, modernly equipped facilities and proven specialists ensure the medical-therapeutic success of a spa vacation in one of the 67 state-recognized spas and resorts in the state in the case of a respiratory disease.
Sun, wind and sea as therapy for respiratory diseases
The Baltic Sea region with its iodine-rich wind, salty water and many days of sunshine offers a special stimulating climate that speaks in favor of a successful spa vacation for respiratory diseases. In addition, the soothing effect of clean air with essential essences in the coastal forests is also beneficial for respiratory diseases. In order for this natural treasure chest to unfold its full effect, specialists have developed suitable therapies for sleep disorders, asthma, bronchitis, COPD and other respiratory diseases based on the healing powers of nature.
Thalasso treatment is considered an effective treatment method for respiratory diseases in spa vacations. "Thalasso" refers to the treatment of diseases with cold or heated sea water, sea air, algae, mud and sand. As a therapeutic medical treatment method under medical supervision, thalasso makes particular use of the health-promoting components of seawater. The coastal climate rounds off the beneficial effects," says MR Dr. med. Regina Schwanitz, spa physician in Warnemünde.
The Baltic Sea region with its natural components of sun, wind and sea offers the best conditions for health-promoting climatic therapy. One exposes oneself consciously to the mild stimulating climate at the coast. Elements of a climatic therapy are the climatic terrain cure, the fresh air lying cure and the heliotherapy. During walks, hikes and other activities with trained climatic therapists, positive effects can be achieved both in the case of respiratory diseases and in the preventive field.
Exercise in the forest is good for the entire body. But forest bathing not only relaxes, but also allows you to breathe deeply thanks to pure air mixed with essential oils. In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the first healing forests invite you to conscious excursions. Forest bathing is about enjoying carefree with all your senses - listening to the birds, smelling the forest air, seeing the diversity of life in the forest and, last but not least, feeling the soft forest floor under your feet. You don't necessarily have to exert yourself: Even a leisurely walk in the forest strengthens the immune system, relieves respiratory complaints and decelerates, among other things.
