Sebastian Kneipp revolutionized naturopathic medicine in the 19 century. After having cured himself of a severe case of tuberculosis (a disease held to be incurable in his day) by taking short immersions in the freezing cold Danube, he began intensive study of the health-promoting power of water and the healing properties of certain plants.
The result of his long years of study and successes with practical application is a visionary life philosophy of timeless relevance. In the light of increasing pollution and stress-related diseases of civilisation, we have a greater need for effective healing methods and to practice preventative medicine.
For Kneipp, this meant regular physical exercise, a healthy diet and the balance of body, mind and soul. He became a pioneer in the field of holistic healing and teaching. The competence of a generations-old, tried and trusted naturopathic and pharmaceutical knowledge is synonymous with his name.
