How are respiratory tractdiseases treated

The basis for the treatment of respiratory diseases is inhalation therapy, which uses natural iodized alkaline water of the hydrocarbonate-chloride-sodium type of medium mineralization "Vincentka".

"Vincentka" is used as the main component for inhalation in most resorts and spa hotels in the Czech Republic.

How are respiratory tract diseases treated

When inhaled, the patient inhales mineral water in a spray, which improves the function of the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract, has an anti-inflammatory effect. After several procedures, the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract is regenerated, the sodium chloride contained in the water helps to increase the secretion of mucus, and iodine stimulates its coughing. "Vincentka" water inhalations have a versatile effect:

  • Relieve congestion in the bronchi
  • Resume airway patency
  • Improve lung ventilation
  • Increase the body's resistance to infections

Inhalations are also recommended for the prophylactic cleansing of the respiratory tract, in order to increase the body's protective response to infectious diseases.

Doctors at the Luhacovice resort recommend drinking "Vincentka" mineral water as a supplement to inhalation therapy. The fact is that after taking mineral water, the beneficial microelements contained in it enter the blood through the gastric mucosa, which “delivers” them to the lungs and bronchi, thereby stimulating the coughing process.


A good therapeutic effect on the respiratory tract is provided by respiratory gymnastics, which is one of the mandatory procedures at the resort. Natural carbonic baths are prescribed, since evaporative CO2 also positively affects the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract.

Medical observations have shown that children do not need to take antibiotics frequently after treatment in Luhacovice. In children who are prone to frequent colds and infectious diseases, their incidence decreases. In asthmatic children, a decrease in the frequency of asthma attacks is noted.

How to treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system

People come to the Luhacovice resort who, in addition to respiratory diseases, have problems with the musculoskeletal system. They are offered a set of procedures based on natural resources - local mineral water and therapeutic peat mud, as well as auxiliary therapy (electrotherapy, physiotherapy, etc.).

How to treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system

Hydrotherapy. The resort uses mineral water from the St. Joseph spring (mineral baths) and the Yaroslav spring (carbon dioxide baths) to conduct water treatment procedures. When carrying out water procedures, the trace elements contained in the mineral water of the resort (for example, iodine) cause a chain of biological reactions in the body, which contribute to increased blood supply to internal organs, reduce inflammatory processes and pain.


Mud therapy. A mandatory component of the musculoskeletal system treatment are mud procedures (mud baths, applications based on natural peat), which tend not only to heat the problem area of the body, but also to saturate the tissues with useful trace elements. The temperature of the mud, the number and duration of the procedures are assigned individually depending on the nature of the pathological process, the presence of concomitant diseases, the state of the cardiovascular system. For example, for patients with the cardiovascular system problems are not prescribed mud baths, but local mud applications are applied that do not exert such a load on the heart.

Mud therapy

Physiotherapy. Among physiotherapeutic procedures, the most effective is physiotherapy in the pool, as these exercises use the hydrostatic water pressure, its lifting force, temperature, and resistance. This facilitates joint function, helps to increase amplitude and improve coordination of movements. The procedure has been successfully used in the treatment of degenerative diseases of the motor apparatus and in its post-traumatic conditions. Exercise therapy, as a rule, is effectively supplemented by massages. At the resort, physiotherapists teach the patient therapeutic gymnastics so that he can perform them at home, which is a prerequisite for consolidating the results of spa treatment.


Natural gas therapy. Procedures using CO2 are an effective treatment for some diseases of the musculoskeletal system. In particular, gas injections have a long-term analgesic effect, and dry carbon dioxide baths contribute to the activation of blood circulation in the body, which is beneficial for rheumatic diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

Natural gas therapy

Electrotherapy. Electrical procedures are used in the treatment of almost all types of the musculoskeletal system diseases, as an electric current stimulates blood circulation, improves tissue metabolism, removes edema, and relieves pain. Different types of electrical procedures affect the body in different ways. For example, diathermy (the use of high-frequency current with a low voltage) is used in cases when it is necessary to achieve heating of deeper organs without a significant effect on the skin - diathermy relieves smooth muscle tension and eliminates pain. This method has a beneficial effect on degenerative and chronic inflammatory joint diseases.


Laser and light therapy affects the molecular structure of cell membranes, phototherapy has anti-inflammatory, decongestant, biostimulating effects.

How to treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract

The basis for the treatment of the gastrointestinal tract in the resort is a drinking course of mineral water. From which mineral spring the patient will drink water, only the attending physician of the spa hotel decides on the basis of individual indicators, since some springs have certain contraindications.

Several types of mineral water are used for the drinking treatment course:

"Vincentka" – is a medium-saline water of the hydrocarbonate-sodium chloride type with a high content of lithium, barium, fluorides and boric acid. The water is clear, without color and odor. It tastes moderately salty.

"Ottovka" – is a cold, medium mineralized iodic acidic water of the hydrocarbonate-sodium chloride type with a high content of lithium and boric acid. Transparent, without color and odor. It tastes salty. It is recommended for a drinking course with simultaneous cardiovascular and renal diseases, when salt intake in the body is specially limited.

"Aloiska" – is a cold, medium-mineralized iodic acidic water, sodium bicarbonate-chloride type with a high content of lithium and boric acid. Water has a weak gray-brown color, odorless. It tastes moderately salty. It is used for diseases of the stomach, duodenum, biliary tract. Indicated for diabetics.

"Saint Joseph" – is used for a drinking course in the treatment of the digestive tract.

Water from Dr. Stastny Spring – water is saturated with boric acid, fluorine, iodine, lithium and barium, used for treatment of the digestive tract.

It is very important to strictly adhere to the doctor’s recommendations, because even especially from the water receiving time depends its effects on the digestive tract. For example, mineral water taken on an empty stomach 1-1.5 hours before a meal inhibits gastric secretion, and 10-15 minutes before a meal, on the contrary, stimulates secretion. That is, the effect of water intake at different times may be different.

An integral part of the treatment of the gastrointestinal tract diseases is a diet that enhances the effect of taking mineral water. At the same time, it is important to remember that the doctor prescribes a dietary regimen, but control over whether the patient adheres to these recommendations is a conscious choice of himself.
