speleotherapy – continue to breathe deeply in the fall

natural health in caves and tunnels

it has now effectively happened. the fall is here before summer could even get its boots on. and as soon as the weather gets worse, there will be complaints about typical autumnal medical problems.

the change in the weather weakens our defenses

acute respiratory disease is then often diagnosed. farid zitoun and christian rüger also know this from daily practice. it can include the classic cold, flu or sinus problems, tonsillitis, and laryngitis. however, acute bronchial diseases are also more common than you would normally think.


painful swallowing difficulties, a runny nose, coughing, hoarseness, and chills then become well-known symptoms. if the infection is more pronounced, respiratory distress, pain in the chest, inflamed tonsils and mucous membranes, plus fever can also be added. catarrh (rhinitis) is, of course, the mildest form of viral or bacterial diseases in the fall and winter.

research into the cause is important

in such cases, it makes sense to have a detailed medical history done, for which you should take a lot of time to find out about individual complaints and their causes. the value of an extensive discussion with the patient should not be underestimated. respiratory diseases can have many different causes and therefore require a precise evaluation of the given situation. there are many possible ways to aid convalescence, such as the use of expectorant or anticoagulant agents. in this case, fever and pain-reducing agents may also be helpful, but an accurate medical diagnosis is essential.

health knowledge on the topic of air and airways

chronic diseases do not depend on the season

there are also chronic pulmonary diseases along with acute ones. these do not simply disappear after a few days or weeks. with bronchial asthma, the respiratory tracts are hypersensitive and become inflamed more easily and more often than usual. as a rule, this can result in symptoms such as shortness of breath, respiratory distress, and coughing.

a form of chronic bronchitis known as ‘copd’ (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is very common in smokers. in contrast to acute bronchitis, which is usually caused by viruses and normally clears up after a few days, the mucous membranes in the bronchi are not just inflamed for a limited period of time, but permanently so. coughing, phlegm and respiratory distress are frequent symptoms.

‘permanent’ does not have to mean ‘endless’

speleotherapy for asthma & co.?

“speleotherapy is occasionally recommended for the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases as well as hay fever.” such is the experience of the bottrop-based youtubers and naturopaths farid zitoun & christian rüger. this method involves patients having to repeatedly stay in ‘healing caves or tunnels’ below ground at regular intervals. these treatments have also become known as cave therapy and have a long tradition, especially in eastern europe.

if you, as a reader, want to know more about good underground air that will allow you to breathe easier, you will find an informative and entertaining youtube video on this topic in this news section. because there is e.g. no pollen, no germs and no fine dust in the tunnels.
