Jelenia Struga MEDICAL SPA is located in a secluded valley with crystal clear air and no electromagnetic smog. It is surrounded by wild nature and a thick forest of the Karkonosze National Park where you can hear the sounds of mountain brooks and birds singing.
Under the hills of the mountains that surround Jelenia Struga there are still historic mines present. One of them features a natural underground radon inhalation room – the only one in Poland and one of five in the world. Apart from the Polish one, radon balneology centres operate in Austria, Germany, Italy and USA.
In Jelenia Struga MEDICAL SPA in Kowary you can not only strengthen your health but also recover through efficient methods that include, among others, natural radon inhalations performed in Sztolnie Kowary – a unique underground adit in the historic uranium mine.
In a specific atmosphere of a picturesque adit, lying comfortably, being protected against excessive chill and listening to relaxing music you have an opportunity to breathe in cold and humid air. The air is free from any pollutions and allergens. It contains small amounts of radon.
Radon (Rn-222) is a noble gas with no colour and no fragrance which is heavier than air. It is released in the adit in the natural way from the rocks and underground mine waters. Radon has a beneficial influence on the disorders of a locomotor system and asthma. It also enhances the body’s immunity system. By affecting the blood vessel walls radon makes them wider, which lowers blood pressure and supplies many organs with more blood.
Radon is quickly absorbed by a respiratory system, it is collected in endocrine glands and the alfa radiation it emits increases the production of many hormones, for example cortisone, pituitary tropic hormone, testosterone or thyroid hormone.
Radon doesn’t damage tissues but intensifies the activity of cells and their revitalisation. It stimulates all life processes and makes the organism regenerates as if it was replacing the old parts by new ones. How does it happen that radioactivity, which usually scares people, can heal? Everything depends on dosing.
The best cure taken in excess is harmful and dangerous poison applied in minimum amounts becomes the cure. Radon concentration in the inhalation rooms is constant and so small that it has healing properties. Radon treatment is perfoemed according to the requirements of speleotherapy. In the modern inhalation rooms the carbon dioxide and radon content is constantly monitored.
Radon’s beneficial properties have been confirmed in experimental researches and treating sick patients. Radon treatment has no side effects – this has been proven by many years of practice in similar centres in Austria, Germany and USA.
In the underground radon inhalation room in Kowary you have an opportunity to take part in a combination radon therapy that is a unique treatment on the world scale. It is enriched with exercises in warm water in the swimming pool. Warming one’s body after a session in the inhalation room helps to absorb radon. It results in the better effects of the whole therapy, it strengthens the organism’s self-regulating abilities and it improves the organism’s natural immunity. The effectiveness of the combination radon therapy has been confirmed by the Rehabilitation Department and Clinic in Poznań.
The combination radon therapy in our inhalation room is enhanced by the favourable climate in the adit. The air tests revealed that from the bacteriological point of view it meets the norms required in operating rooms.
