ImmunoMenu and Mud Balneotherapy to strengthen the immune defense

A menu that concentrates the richest foods of precious elements for the immune defense

The benefit of thermal mud as an immune system activator.

Two factors combined to transform a thermal stay into a natural defense for health.

A specific program to strengthen the immune system, made up of the combined benefits of:

  • an immunostimulant menu, enriched with trace elements, vitamins and natural antioxidants
  • a thermal mud balneotherapy program that stimulates the body's immunological functions.

Here's what you'll find at GB Thermae Hotels.

The thermal mud helps to stimulate the immune defenses

The immune system is responsible for the body's defense against pathogens;

at this moment it is of fundamental importance to support it.

In addition to the benefits now known for osteoarticular and skeletal muscle diseases, fibromyalgia and many other chronic rheumatic conditions, mud balneotherapy treatments have a therapeutic action that involves the entire body, in a deep work of purification, drainage and metabolic awakening.

How does thermal mud act on the immune system?

The immune system is a complex net of organs (spleen thymus lymph nodes and lymphatic system) and cells (neutrophil leukocytes, lymphocytes, macrophages) that have the function to fight infectious agents.

It has been shown that a mud therapy cycle activates the sentinel receptors of the immune system, present in the border areas (lymph nodes, intestine, lungs).

When stimulated they increase the number of guardian cells (white blood cells, T lymphocytes) circulating in the blood and lymphatic system.

A cycle of thermal treatments, which allows to obtain two important effects in an absolutely natural way:

  • improve the ability of white blood cells to recognize and eliminate germs and viruses
  • increase the activity of T lymphocytes, responsible for the activation of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

For this reason we can say that a cycle of mud-balneotherapy induces activation of the immune defenses.

We add that this type of thermal treatment activates the body's purifying mechanisms, such as the kidneys, liver, sweat glands, thus promoting the elimination of toxic substances produced during infectious/inflammatory processes.

We thought of adding an extra factor: a diet, designed to reinforce the immune system.

In this way, the thermal treatment cycle, even of only one week, is strengthened by creating a real natural shield.

ImmunoMenu: nutrition that helps strengthen immune defenses

The activity of the immune system is deeply influenced by the way we eat

The vitamins for which evidence has been gathered of useful action in terms of immune defenses are mainly C, A, E, D, B6, B9 (folic acid, whose supplementation is strongly recommended during pregnancy) and B12; among the microelements zinc, selenium, iron and copper are useful.

An inadequate intake of these elements can make the body more susceptible and defenseless against infections caused by various pathogens.

Strengthen your immune system through nutrition is possible.

To make sure that you get an adequate supply of all the compounds needed for your immune system every day, it is important to take the right foods in the right quantities and variety.

It is also important to take into account conservation and preparation methods that preserve the nutritional values ​​of the various foods as much as possible.

Fruit and vegetables containing vitamin C, E and A, indispensable allies of the body's natural defenses, must become a constant presence in the kitchen and be part of all meals and snacks of the day.

Fruit and vegetables must be stored whole and not peeled, in a cool place away from light. And preferably eat raw or undercooked, especially not boiled.

Our medical team and our chefs have designed a menu that includes and combines all these beneficial elements for the immune system.
