Levico Thermal Water
“The water of Roncegno and Levico seems to have been prepared by some kindly spirit and certain forces can be found there in nature, which play a fundamental role in the human organism. In these thermal waters, the forces of both copper and iron are found in admirably balanced proportions with traces of arsenic on a broader base.” Rudolf Steiner - Dornach 1920
The source of the water is in Vetriolo at more than 1600 m above sea level in a cave at the end of a tunnel dug in vein of arsenopirite. It is in particular, this transformation of pirite, caused by rain fall in collaboration with singular micro-organisms and the consequent dissolving of other minerals and metals present in the rocks to give origin to this valuable “composition” which is so unique. The particularly harmonic ratio of the elements, especially copper, iron and arsenic makes the Levico water an almost “universal remedy” able to restore a natural balance in many of modern man’s disturbances. This also explains it’s very broad spectre of action which makes it a notable remedy in all those conditions of debilitation and depletion of life forces, as well as being very useful in convalescence, in chronic debilitating diseases, in immune deficiencies and disease due to allergies and stress.
Perhaps the most effective, this consists of a cycle of baths of 10-15 minutes at a temperature of 36-38°C, with increasing-decreasing concentration, followed by rest to permit reaction. After the baths, therefore, towel drying of the skin is avoided as is the cooling of the body, which is wrapped in hot cotton cloths and a bath robe and the patient is then left to rest on a bed, covered with a sheet and woollen blankets for 30-40 minutes. We also discourage our patients from washing themselves after the baths with soap or detergents so as to allow the body to assimilate what has been absorbed by the skin over the entire day.
Inalazioni e/o aerosol
These are frequently a very useful complement to thermal treatment. Inhalations, thanks to the larger particles having a direct effect on the nasal and Para nasal cavities, the throat and upper vie aeree, are recommended particularly in cases chronic rhinitis, adenoid hypertrophy, faringo-laringitis and allergic rhinitis. Aerosol with its much finer particles reach the vie aeree distali and is useful in chronic bronchitis and pneumonia.
These are recommended in chronic inflammatory conditions of the female genital apparatus as well as in some forms of sterility
