Health Meets Life’s Pleasures: Schroth Cure In Oberstaufen
Wine, body wraps, water and exercise: these are the basic elements which have proven to be successful for 180 years, acting as a natural Anti-Aging agent. The Schroth cure has been adapted to our modern day needs.
The Original Oberstaufen Schroth Cure
The doctrines of the Silesian doctor, Johann Schroth, have been administered here in the Alps, not far from Lake Constance, since 1949. The “Original Oberstaufen Schroth Cure” which Johann Schroth developed over 180 years ago, has been carefully tailored to our present day demands. This was necessary so that the doctors could treat their patients individually, to suit their needs. Even so the ground rules and treatments haven’t changed. The founder, Johann Schroth was the first to realise how important the body’s self-healing powers are. People who are ill can relieve their metabolic system by fasting, helping their digestive system, setting energy free, which in turn causes a natural regeneration. This is why the Schroth Cure is a calorie-reduced diet, free from animal fats, protein and salt.
How It WorksIn the early hours of the morning each guest receives a full body wrap. This causes an increase of the peripheral circulation and stimulates the body’s metabolism. In return a complete body cleansing takes place. The rhythmic change of fluid intake named “dry” days and “drinking” days stimulates the healing powers and detox process. Combined with rest and exercise this optimises the effect.
The Schroth Cure guest in Oberstaufen and neighbouring villages, Steibis and Thalkirchdorf are prescribed a glass of wine and a long walk rather than medicine and pills. Preferably Nordic walking exercise, with two walking poles, along one of the many designated panoramic tracks. This activity works therapeutically and helps relieve tension, joint and back problems. It decreases weight and strengthens the heart and circulation. There are over 90km of walkways, with various levels to choose from.
Oberstaufen is not just the only “Schroth-Cure Spa” in Germany, it is also officially recognised as a “Climatic Health Spa” due to its high mountain region with an alpine climate at lowest level. The clear air between 647 m and 1833 m strengthens the immune system and organism, is good for the skin and ideal for bronchial ailments. Helps relieve heart and circulation problems and rheumatic and metabolic disorders. The beautiful landscape combined with exercise and the improvement of health and well- being are the reasons why people return. There are over 160 alpine huts to visit, where most serve local food and refreshments. Many hotels offer a high standard and wide range of spa treatments, which also help the body to regenerate, when combined with the Schroth Cure diet.
There are over 16 registered health and spa hotels in Oberstaufen which have been given the Bavarian “WellVital” rating. A great side effect due to the diet is the weight loss, another reason why people return.
