What is Schroth therapy?

Schroth therapy is a holistic and naturopathic treatment that neutralises acidosis and detoxes the body. Oberstaufen in Allgäu is the only Schroth spa town which also has official accreditation. Haubers Alpenresort is your first port of call when planning your Wellness stay and Allgäu Schroth therapy.

Schroth therapy is based around “drinking” days and “dry” days that help mobilise your body. Together with your own self-discipline and willpower this Allgäu therapy strengthens the body’s power to self-heal, boosts the immune system and energises the metabolism. The therapy is based on four principles.

1. The Schroth diet

Schroth therapy here in Oberstaufen in Allgäu has nothing to do with a diet of grains. (diesen Satz ist meiner Meinung nach auch ueberfluessig). The Schroth diet is one of the core fundamentals of the Schroth therapy and is based on the century old principle of therapeutic fasting. The guest is served a predominantly salt free, calorie reduced, basic diet with no animal proteins or fats.

2. The Schroth poultices (sweat packs)

Each day – except Sundays – guests are woken soon after 4 a.m. with a hot cup of herbal tea brought to them by our uniquely qualified members of our team. Ten minutes or so later your body that is warm from a good night’s sleep is wrapped in a cool damp, linen cloth and covered with a warmed blanket. Up to three hot water bottles are added as required to produce a rapid warming of the body.

3. The Schroth drink and dry days

A rhythm of liquid intake that is personalised to your needs by the doctor provides yet a further impulse to the body and its innate ability to heal itself as well as encouraging deep tissue drainage. In addition to mineral water, teas and juices guests are allowed to partake of dry spa wines in moderation.

4. Rest and exercise

A balance of rest and exercise in conjunction with the rhythmic intake of fluids supports detoxification of the body and increases a feeling of mental wellbeing. The rest phases that are undertaken on the “dry” days allow for intensive regeneration of the body. Relaxation techniques, massages or gentle strolls are wellness body for the body and the soul. They help guests to destress and provide an opportunity for them to focus on their own self-healing abilities. Exercise that is undertaken on the “drinking” days mobilises the metabolism and aids the breakdown of body fats.
