Sea, moor mud, salt water, and chalk – the natural remedies of Mecklenburg

The multifaceted natural landscape of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is not just a feast for the eyes that makes you want to marvel, linger, and enjoy. Above all, it is a producer, storeroom, and supplier of effective remedies, some of which have already proved themselves for centuries – and without which there would be no health resorts in MV. In addition to the good air on the coast and in the forests, you'll find salty sea water and the marine climate, as well as salt water from the depths of the earth, nutritious, warming moor mud, and mineralised chalk from the island of Rügen. Traditionally tried-and-tested does not mean outdated, not by a long shot: it is precisely in this age of high-tech medicine and laboratory cosmetics that these remedies reconnect us with nature and authenticity.

Seawater

We have all noticed before how good a dip in the salty sea is for us on a normal beach holiday: it clears our nose, we feel the power of the waves invigorate us, and the fresh, cool water wakes us up.

Moor mud

Moor mud

Admittedly, there are more tempting prospects than immersing your entire body in a dark, slimy mud bath, and the moor itself does sound a bit eerie. But don't worry: if you are recommended a moor mud bath for arthrosis or rheumatism, for example, it is not a creepy bog that awaits you, but a tub filled with mud and bathing peat.

Salt water

Salt water

It's not just the sea that provides us with valuable, salutary, salty water: you can also find natural salt water with high doses of important mineral salts such as sodium-, magnesium-, and potassium chloride in the depths of the Earth.
