The Casale Montondo offers several holistic activities in contact with nature: Spagyria, Flower Therapy, Breath awareness
Breath into the Wood
The forest can be preventive and therapeutic for body and soul, and perhaps also for the mind.
We obtained good therapeutic benefits and results in cases of asthma and various allergies, exploiting long-term stay into the woods. No coincidence that many treatment centers or thermal places are located in wooded areas. In a past that might seem remote, were treated in the mountains diseases such as tuberculosis, fought during the regime of fascist, and fortunately eradicated in our day.
The term derives from the greek Spagiria “Spao” to tear open and “Agheuro” which literally means to collect, but before separate and then rejoin.
The process of obtaining spagyric remedies is based on the work of the Swiss physician Paracelsus (1493-1541), considered the initiator of the Spagiria.
The production of the dye spagyric is based on three essential steps: fermentation, distillation and incineration.
This way they can be extracted essential oils (aromatic), minerals and trace elements unique to plants.
These herbal tinctures are alleged to have superior medicinal properties to simple alcohol tinctures, perhaps due the formation of soap – like compounds from the essential oils and the basic salts contained within the ash. In theory these spagyrics can also optionally include material from fermentation of the plant material and also any aromatic component such as might be obtained through distillation. The final spagyric should be a re-blending of all such extracts into one ‘essence.’
The Flower therapy was accepted between Alternative Medicine by WHO (World Health Organization) since 1976. It is an emerging branch of biological medicine, which uses a series of natural essences prepared from wild flowers.
The study of the healing properties of flowers, the heritage of ancient medical traditions from different parts of the world, was particularly studied and cared, for the first time in a modern and original way, by the Welsh physician Edward Bach, between the years 1926 and 1934
