Whom to Believe?


Gasteiner Heilstollen

Spas in the Bad Gastein area of Austria have been known for their health benefits since Roman times - while the U.S. EPA didn't discover radon as a threat until 1984. Note that the level in the "healing gallery" is 1,000 times the "fix it" level of the EPA.

*************************** THIS ***************************
In the Healing Gallery in Gastein deep down in the Radhaus Mountain, there is a worldwide unique healing climate to be found: Because of the air, which contains radon and temperatures of 37 to 41.5 degrees, and a relatively high humidity of between 70 and 100%, your body will refill itself naturally with vitality and strength. Muscles and joints relax as the mountain gives out new energy.

The Healing Gallery is Gastein is the most effective treatment method in Gastein and is probably the most effective natural healing method for treating rheumatic illnesses.

The Natural Healing Power:
  • High radon content (up to 4.5 NanoCurie per litre of air in the Gallery)
  • Damp warmth (air temperature ranges from 37-41.5 degrees Celsius and relatively high air humidity of 70/100%).
  • Speleotherapy conditions (completely pure, dust free, allergy free, and practically bacteria free air, healing aerosol, negative ions)

EPA Recommends:

  • If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon.
  • For new homes, ask if radon resistant construction feature(s) have been used.
  • Fix the home if radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.
  • Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced.
  • Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test.
