There are no age limits for therapeutic approaches based on completely natural and non-invasive methods, whose efficacy is also proved in the treatment of diseases that affect both adults and children, increasingly achieving the approval of the worldwide medical community.
Over the last years, it was possible to detect a growing enthusiasm in the face of the success that thermal treatments have had in the treatment of several childhood diseases, including sinusitis, asthma, ear infections, allergic rhinitis and allergies.
The recovery of therapeutic methods that seemed abandoned in front of the advanced pharmacological science was made necessary by the progressive weakening of the childhood immune system brought by an often indiscriminate use of antibiotics, steroids and mucolytic drugs, whose action often alleviates the symptoms without treating the pathology causing the initial discomfort.
Besides soothing the inflammation and the respiratory disorders contracted during childhood, baths treatments are particularly effective in prevention, managing to anticipate and avoid the occurrence of real diseases, through an action aimed at strengthening the immune system and the proper functioning of the respiratory tract.
Precisely because of its double effect, linked to treatment and prevention, the paediatric thermal industry is experiencing, in the last few years, a real boost in terms of supply and demand, enriched with new structures, new solutions and innovations intended to create a playful and familiar environment for both children and adolescents.
Although baths treatments intended for children can be considered suitable for any type of disease or pathology, an important role in the growth of modern paediatric baths is undoubtedly paid by childhood asthma, whose occurrence is aggravated by allergenic factors generated by the increasing levels of urban pollution.
It is estimated that each year around 10 on 100 children are affected by asthma, moreover the occurrence of the symptoms in relation to this disease is found even before their fifth year of life, thus requiring an urgent and timely therapeutic approach, which could stop the disease from its embryonic manifestations.
The underestimation or failure to recognize the symptoms associated with asthma, a disorder officially recognized by the National Health System, may in fact induce parents to confuse this disorder with other less serious and transitional respiratory disorders and cause the worsening of a clinic disorder that could instead be easily treated in a special thermal facilities, without further costs incurred by the families.
