Atopic diseases

Whole body cryotherapy in cryo-chamber for treating atopic diseases

Atopia describes the usually hereditary property of the organism to react to specific external stimuli in a hypersensitive manner. Diseases that can become manifest in different organs or tissues result from this hypersensitivity. Neurodermatitis (atopic dermatitis A) and bronchial asthma number amongst such diseases.
Investigations indicate, however, that these diseases relate not only to a hyper-reactivity of the organism towards the environment, but that genetic factors also play a determining role. This has led to a differentiation in the way the disease is classified, i.e. into–   an endogenous (intrinsic, not allergic), and an–   exogenous (extrinsic, allergic) form.Both forms of neurodermatitis are characterised by inflammatory skin findings and both forms of bronchial asthma feature a hyper-reactivity of the bronchial system.

The information on this page is inspired by the book "Power from the Cold" by Prof. Papenfuß. The author states explicitly in his book that the descriptions in his book (and on this page) are not in any way intended to act as a substitute for the careful clinical indication process and the observation of strict safety measures developed in individual cryotherapy centres, or as a substitute for the indication of whole body cryotherapy in combination with other treatments.
