While U.S. doctors tend to prescribe drugs as a front-line defense against medical issues, their European counterparts are more likely to suggest non-pharmacological treatments for their patients. In Germany herbal medicine is popular, and in France lots of people routinely use homeopathy as preventative medicine. Europeans also have a long tradition of drinking healing mineral waters to enhance their personal health and wellness. Despite the widespread use of medicinal mineral waters in Europe, mineral water therapy remains basically unknown in the United States and Canada.
The use of mineral waters to treat diseases and disorders, or Balneotherapy, is taught in many European medical schools. European doctors routinely send their patients to mineral spas (called sanitariums). Every year thousands of sick people take “health vacations” at the many healing mineral spas throughout Europe.
The Czech town of (or Carlsbad) has been a prominent international healing resort since the 1700s. The town’s mineral water has been called the “healing gift from the earth” or the “miracle mineral water”. This mineral water is a well-known therapeutic remedy for various chronic conditions – and especially for pancreatitis. Every year visitors from Europe and Asia drink the Czech mineral waters on health vacations that last anywhere from one to six months.
Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water is the oldest researched mineral supplement in the world. In fact, a medical book from 1522 recommends a series of mineral water treatments as a remedy for constipation. The positive effects of spring water on the health of animals and humans have been documented in hundreds of clinical books and articles through the ages. But these books and articles have been published predominantly in Russian, German and Czech, so they remain largely unknown outside of Europe.
It is the unique mineral composition of this water that makes it such a therapeutic success. Historically, the rich and upper classes had this water carried across Europe in bottles and barrels for use in treating their illnesses. Hoping to simplify transport, researchers set out to create a healing salt from evaporated thermal spring water. An inexpensive salt production method was discovered in 1764. Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt made it possible for the healing properties of this unique spring water to be exported around the world.
Now, even in US and Canada, people can create the same healing mineral water found in Karlovy Vary by simply dissolving the spring salt in warm water, in the comfort of their own homes. Best of all, Czech doctors have determined that the mineral water created from the reconstituted genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt has the identical healing properties to the mineral water at the spring source.
Mineral water prepared from the Thermal Spring Salt has been successful in healing conditions such as chronic pancreatitis, Crohn’s disease, chronic hepatitis, fatty liver, metabolic syndrome, diverticulosis, early stage of liver cirrhosis, esophageal acid reflux, constipation, parasites, etc. One hundred years ago in Europe, this healing mineral water was the only recognized treatment of diabetes, gout, obesity, stomach ulcers, kidney stones and gallbladder stones. Today, Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt is still a very important complementary approach for treating these disorders across Europe.
Czech scientists have also found that the mineral water increased the activity of pancreatic enzymes and promoted enzymatic secretion in volunteers – especially in people with chronic pancreatitis and patients who have had their gallbladder removed. In these studies this healing mineral water not only increased the activity of enzymes amount of pancreatic juices, but also lowered the pressure inside the pancreatic duct.
Mineral water prepared at home from the genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt is also a safe and natural way to normalize the body’s alkalinity, and to thereby help prevent chronic metabolic acidosis. The alkaline effect of the water is mild and works slowly, and its strength depends upon the ratio of water added to a measurement of salt. The spring water contains a complex composition of calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, bicarbonates, sulfates, chlorides, and a lot of trace minerals such as zinc, selenium, cobalt, lithium, copper and more in ionic form. In modern-day Europe, drinking the water manufactured from genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt is an effective complementary approach for treating obesity, diabetes, gout, metabolic syndrome, high blood lipids, and osteoporosis.
Research shows Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water may also slow the development of chronic pancreatitis through:
o Enhancing liver function by increasing the production and flow of bile,
o Promoting pancreatic function through the manufacture and release of pancreatic enzymes,
o Decreasing the pressure inside the common bile duct and the pancreatic duct through restoring proper Sphincter of Oddi function (the valve between the bile duct, pancreatic duct, and duodenum),
o Anti-inflammation and anti-microbial properties,
o Stimulating peristalsis of the intestines,
o Preventing the stagnation of food in the digestive tract,
o Restoring friendly intestinal flora,
o Restoring depleted bicarbonates, minerals and microelements such as magnesium, potassium, selenium, zinc, etc.,
o Normalizing the body’s acid-alkaline balance for better secretion of alkaline pancreatic juices, and
o Improving the body’s metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
The therapeutic modalities of mineral water made from genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt will make it useful to various professionals, including: medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, herbalists, nutritionists, chiropractors, and colon hydro therapists. And mineral water manufactured from this Czech thermal spring salt is for anyone looking to slow aging, detoxify the body, heal an illness, or promote general body wellness. The primary purpose of this article is to bridge the information gap between European and American doctors, general health practitioners, and the thousands of people who can use the genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt to enhance their overall health.
