For allergy sufferers it can be a little bit sea
A vacation at the Baltic Sea is especially recommended for allergy sufferers. The fresh and allergen-poor sea air can alleviate allergy-conditioned complaints, strengthen the immune system in natural way and provide so for recovery. Because who has strong defenses, suffers less from inflammations of the mucous membrane in the nose and in the other airways. That's why exercise in fresh, clean air and a refreshing swim in the Baltic Sea has been a proven health tip for allergies since the 18th century, when seaside resorts were founded.
Thalasso for allergies
Thalasso (ancient Greek: sea) stands for the power of the sea and the healing effects of seawater, algae, mud and salt. Thalasso wellness hotels in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are located directly by the sea and offer treatments with sea products in the form of baths, packs and massages, among other things. Thalasso products contain many minerals that can be absorbed by the skin. The skin gets better blood circulation, tighter and looks younger. Relaxation, diet and exercise on the beach as well as in the coastal forest complete the wellness program for skin and respiratory tract. Among the many top-class providers in the northeast is Warnemünde's Hotel Neptun, which opened the first thalassotherapy center in a German hotel in 2001.
Kneipp cures for allergies
Allergy sufferers appreciate Kneipp cures. The water of the Baltic Sea and lake district invites not only for bathing, but also for water treading. According to its inventor, the priest and naturopath Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897), the body is to be stimulated by specific water stimuli to a positive, healing counter-reaction. Also organs are to be stimulated and relaxed specifically over special assigned skin areas (Dermatome). Important here is a good pre-warming through exercise, warm air (e.g. sauna) or warm water (alternating applications). Recognized Kneipp spas in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are Göhren on the island of Rügen and Feldberg.
In case of allergy: natural products from MV directly from the producer

Fresh produce of all kinds can be purchased at regional markets and farms. Allergy sufferers should give preference to vegetables such as broccoli, kale, carrots, tomatoes, chicory, cabbage, garlic, mushrooms or spinach. Especially red, yellow, orange and deep green vegetables, which contain plenty of beta-carotene (the precursor of vitamin A) in addition to numerous other vital substances, strengthen the immune system in the production of white blood cells (the "body police") and the defense against infections.

People with hay fever can hardly avoid the disease-causing allergens in the air. Watery eyes and runny noses are the unpleasant result.
