Effectiveness of radon

Effectiveness of radon

Curative waters containing amounts of radon are one of the most effective remedies the nature has to offer.

It not only stimulates the human self-healing power, but also boosts our immune system and mobilizes hormones which can have a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect.

Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive noble gas

which can be found in the Earth's crust and even in the air. Its concentration varies widely from place to place so that only at very few places a concentration is present that would make a medical utilisation possible. You can find such a place here at the radon therapy centre in Bad Schlema.

Radon is known as the decay product of uranium with a physical half-life of 3.8 days or a biological half-life of 20 to 30 minutes. It is the time it takes for the radon to lose half of its radiologic activity. Due to the potent Alpha radiation – a decay product – just a small dosage is sufficient to be effective.
