Concentrated healing power of many 1000 years
Research has shown that blossoms, flowers, medicinal herbs, grasses and other plants have been sinking into the healing moor of Neydharting for at least 30.000 years. The moor developed from glacial lakes that became fens through intensive growth. There, a unique variety of pre-alpine vegetation gathered in the dip of the Neydharting basin.
The healing moor Neydharting is
particularly well tolerated.
The plants that thrive lushly at groundwater level sink into the water again (and again) in a constant circle and form the healing moor of Neydharting in a special biological transformation process with its variety of effective ingredients, which Prof. Stöber (†1990) called the “moor bouquet”. The healing moor of Neydharting contains over four hundred plant species. As a fen, it is a particularly wet moor in which the plant remains piled up at the bottom do not completely decompose, as microorganisms can only work sparsely there. This means that the biological ingredients remain all the more active, as determined in studies that are precisely prescribed in order to be allowed to call a moor “medicinal moor”. This healing moor is particularly effective not only because of its great variety of biological substances, which can unfold their healing effect in interaction, but also because of the rich occurrence of minerals and trace elements, especially iron.
A special feature of the healing moor of Neydharting is also its constant moisture balance: this healing moor has never dried up and died, the power of thousands of years is collected and active
Vital Baths of Neydharting
Time and again, practical experience and expert opinions have proven the clear healing effect of the vitalizing medicinal moor vital baths, the medicinal moor vital packs for diseases of the locomotor system, gynecological ailments and skin irritations, and the medicinal moor drinking cures for disorders of the digestive tract.
And there is another positive effect of the medicinal moor Neydharting in the context of naturopathy: It is particularly well tolerated.
Discovered by animals – awakened by Paracelsus/Multiple effects with NH moor bouquet/Fact sheet healing resources/Sustainable use (without overexploitation of the moor)
Natural medicine came into being through close observation of nature. Observations of animals were particularly helpful. In the fauna of our world, instincts are still felt that have unfortunately been lost for a long time.
Our ancestors used these instincts to gather knowledge about the healing powers of their environment. For example, animals eat certain herbs and grasses when they have upset their stomachs; they even “prescribe” themselves ivy and mandrake roots, which have a particularly bitter taste and are otherwise avoided.
Deer have been observed bathing their wounds in the medicinal moor water after rank fights, and goats, otherwise known as “gourmets”, have been observed eating medicinal moor soil in order to be
able to digest poisonous herbs such as hemlock. Even ravens, caught on poison bait, pluck herbs in
the medicinal moor and survive.
Today we can explain what instinct tells the animals: Many active substances of the medicinal herbs and plants submerged in the healing moor, such as phytohormones and – produced from the plant material by a biological transformation process – lignins, bitumina, proteins, pectins, humic acids,
fulvic acids and the minerals and trace elements enriched in the moor, cause the healing properties.
But since these substances do not act in isolation like artificial medicines, but in community, the healing and soothing effects arise – this is a finding from current phytotherapy and a wonderful property of the unique “moor bouquet” from Neydharting.
A particularly close observer was Paracelsus (see illustration), born in 1493 as Theophrast Bombast
von Hohenheim, a famous physician and natural scientist who was the first to recognise the chemical
and physical foundations of life and is therefore considered the founder of pharmaceutical chemistry.
All his treatments aim at the preservation and care of the natural vitality. In his “Baderbüchlein” he
recommended healing earths and healing moors, also the “Gemös in Neydhärding” which he visited,
for the treatment of various diseases: Jaundice and biliousness, fever, lack of desire to eat, scarring,
infertility. Scientific evidence could be found for many of these effects. But even before him, as early
as around 1360, medicinal moor water and moor baths were mentioned in Neydharting.
Already discovered by Paracelsus…
This makes this Upper Austrian medicinal moor the oldest known medicinal moor bath in the world.
