Healthy waterfalls

Healthy waterfalls

The power of nature - fascinating and healthy!

A clinical study of the Paracelsus Private Medical University of Salzburg (PMU), an authority on „asthma and allergies" confirms:

The abidance at the Krimml Waterfall causes a sustainable functional, symptomatic and immunological improvement.

Finest electrically charged water particles are responsible for this change. They are generated from mists of spray from the Krimmler Waterfalls that enter the respiratory tract and go into the lungs. The climatic spa at Krimmler Waterfalls provides a new, gentle and natural therapeutic option for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Splash Camp Krimml study results:

The analysis of the results shows that exposure to the waterfalls results in a sustainable, functional, symptomatic and immunological improvement. A comparison between the "waterfall children" and non-waterfall group after three weeks showed:

  • Significantly higher numbers of regulatory T-cells - cells responsible for balancing the immune system - thus reducing asthmatic inflammation
  • Significantly higher gamma delta T-cell numbers - cells that relax the respiratory tract and lungs after a painful asthma attack
  • Significantly more activation markers of innate immunity - another sign of a "recovery" of the immune system
  • Significantly less eosinophil cationic protein, a marker of allergic inflammation
  • Significantly fewer allergy and inflammatory biochemical messengers (IL-5, IL-13).
