          Angiopathy, heart and cardio-vascular diseases
          Diseases of the musculoskeletal system
          Degenerative rheumatic diseases of the joints and the spine
          Stomach, intestine, liver, bile, metabolism

How the healing waters work


The carbonic alcalis of the Emser Therme loosen up the mucous membranes and have an mucolytic effect with a considerable relief of the expectoration. A prerequisite is, however, that there is no damage beyond repair of the mucous membranes. As the digestive tract is lined with mucous membranes, it also comes to a secretion and a stimulating effect on the vermicular movement by the redundant carbon dioxide. This effect is supported by walking about while drinking. The effect of the “Emser Therme” ,which has been only too well-known, has brought patients to the resort up to this century and has nothing lost of its importance up to now. Today respiratory diseases caused by an infection are treated by means of the traditional medicine, of course, but supported by drinking the waters, inhalations, gargling and nasal douche with health spring water. Moreover it seem even more important today to treat the sequelae of these respiratory diseases in a gentle way.
In our polluted environment it is at least just as important to enable the mucous membranes a prevention and stabilization beforehand.

 The traditional course of treatment


For the course of treatment a model based on experience is suggested and can be altered ad hoc, of course. You start early in the morning drinking one or two glasses of “Emser Kränchen” (health spring water), in the case of digestive tract problems the health spring water of the “Kesselbrunnen” is recommended. Slow strolling improves the effect. You should drink another two glasses of spring water before lunch and late in the afternoon. Gargling and nasal douche take place in the morning. The very important inhalations, which are offered by rehabilitation clinics and some spa doctors, should take place twice a day. Depending on the medical findings we distinguish a humid inhalation in a room or with a vaporiser, the latter mostly in a slightly enlarged droplet form to release mucus. A special form is the aerosolising, which in finely spread out dispersion penetrates into the smallest bronchioles and alveoli and can become medically active. That is eminently important for bronchial asthmatics. Thus with the help of the health spring water respective medicine for bronchial dilatation can be applied.

The long term damages of the asthma emphysema complex in the form of the cardiovascular insufficiency is handled with carbon dioxide baths provided by the health springs. The effect of the carbon dioxide baths of about 30° to 32° C is because of a persistent thermal contrast stimulus, which improves the peripheral cardiac cycle (dilatation of the capillaries). The heart muscle is relieved by the physical pressure of the water. This treatment should be prescribed only for every second day. The almost CO2-free thermal water of 32° C is an ideal supplement to all kinds of tension of the musculoskeletal system and rheumatic diseases.
