A properly functioning digestive tract is the alpha and omega of a satisfied life and of good health. This is another reason why great attention has been recently paid to this part of the human body, both on part of physicians and of numerous research teams.

In Františkovy Lázně, the effective and centuries-proven treatment of the digestive tract is based primarily on the unique natural abundance of resources, which is unrivalled worldwide. The Glauber IV Spring is found in Františkovy Lázně, which actually contains the most Glauber salts* in the world. And it is this component found in all the Glauber springs that has a significant effect on improving the health of the gastrointestinal tract.

The plentiful occurrence of therapeutic mineral springs in Františkovy Lázně allows physicians to prepare a highly effective drinking cure that has proven positive effects especially on chronic disorders of the oesophagus and stomach, chronic disorders of the small and large intestines, the gall bladder, and biliary tract, and on post-op states after surgery to these organs. The drinking cure also helps alleviate torpid constipation, boosts the functions of the digestive tubes, the biliary tract, but also the liver.

Thanks to their salutary effects, the Františkovy Lázně mineral waters rank among the most used waters for drinking cures.

The treatment of the digestive tract takes place under the supervision of expert physicians and nurses.

Part of the therapeutic treatment is also fully curing post-op scars, suitable exercise, baths, peat packs, and other spa procedures.

*Glauber salts are sodium sulphate, known as mirabilite since the 17th century. Often, it is labelled as the best natural means for cleansing the body. We know that its effects on the whole digestive tract are practically unreal.
