For whom radon treatment is suitable.

Radon treatment is generally very gentle, it does not burden the body either thermally or in terms of circulatory or acid-base balance. It is also well tolerated by the elderly. It is especially suitable for the treatment of chronic diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system:

  • inflammation

  • all rheumatic diseases of joints, soft tissues, spine
    (  rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus, fibromyalgia, Bechterew's disease)

  • pain and stiffness from wear and tear
    (arthrosis of joints and spine, disc herniation, damage to tendons, ligaments and meniscus)

  • metabolic disorder
    osteoporosis, gout, porphyria

  • damage to the peripheral nerve or spinal root
    ( neuritis, neuralgia, peripheral palsy, radicular spinal syndromes, polyneuropathy, carpal tunnel syndromes)

Furthermore, these are postoperative and post-traumatic conditions requiring intensive healing and regeneration of damaged tissues. For example, total joint replacements, spine surgery or flat burn scars. Radon treatment regenerates states with general energy disharmony:

  • vegetative lability, neurocirculatory weakness                                                                                                                        cold extremities, easy collapses, chilliness, functional organ dysfunction, climacteric syndrome

  • general loss of strength in old age

  • exhaustion in demanding occupations

  • regeneration in top athletes

  • maintenance of functional reserves of the organism in multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease at an early stage

Peripheral vascular diseases such as vasoneuroses, blood loss in atherosclerosis of the limb arteries, conditions after vein inflammation or rheumatic vasculitis respond well.


Radon therapy is not suitable for

  • patients with any acute illness, infection, unstabilized arterial hypertension, heart or respiratory problems, fluctuating diabetes, untreated thyroid hyperfunction, etc.

  • pregnant women

  • children and youth up to 18 years

  • patients who are less than 2 years after surgery or diagnosis of cancer if the oncologist does not give consent to radon treatment
