Water contains healing; it is the simplest, cheapest and – if used correctly – the safest remedy.
Water can quench more than thirst
Sebastian Kneipp had an eventful life story. As a young man, he developed tuberculosis – at that time, it was an incurable disease. Yet the priest was able to cure himself with ice-old immersion baths in the Danube. The foundation of his water cure was laid. Now Kneipp focused intensively on the health-promoting power of water.
His water applications are also still very popular today as they are easy to perform. In 2015, the German UNESCO Committee even decided to recognize "Kneippen (water-treading) as traditional knowledge and practice according to the teachings of Sebastian Kneipp" as a form of intangible cultural heritage.
