Ice Cold Water: Kneipp Therapy – German Wellness and Health Program



Kneipp therapy is a holistic natural healing philosophy. The Bavarian priest Sebastian Kneipp discovered the healing power of water for himself in the 19th century and used it to overcome his tuberculosis. The philosophy he developed from this caused a sensation and the humble priest became one of the most famous Germans in the world. Princes, empresses and the Pope swore by his services. Today, Kneipp therapy is a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. Euromaxx reporter Hendrik Welling takes a Kneipp cure in Bad Wörishofen. There, where it all began.

  2. Leider erkennt die evidence based Medizin nicht an, dass er TB geheilt hat, weil angeblich TB unheilbar war. Die Kältetherapie /Kriotheraphie lässt die Mitochondrien aktivieren bzw erneuern, und die Kräuter fangen frei Radikale. Krebs ist auch vermeidbar bzw heilbar, aber nicht im Endstadium im Endsta

  3. Germany is a scientific superpower . But it is also the inventor of the world's biggest scam in medicine i.e Homeopathy. This Hydrotherapy seems no different. As soon as he said that a priest invented it, I became very skeptical.

  4. In an age before scientific rigor enable facts instead of marketing to promote medical advances, Kneipp stumbled upon an effect of cold on the body: it does appear to stimulate the immune system compared to a control group.

    e.g. in absence of treatments, making sure your vit D levels are sufficient and taking cold showers may offer enough basic protection to fight off infections. It's not anywhere near the same protection as a vaccine but it may protect you from small exposures where otherwise your body may not be able to stop an exposure. It's not a replacement for vaccines but it can help until there is one available.
