Gastro programme

Do you have regular indigestion problems, heartburn, bloating or cramps? A common ailment which can play havoc with your quality of life, many gastrointestinal problems can be linked to diet and lifestyle.

This gastro wellness program will help to treat these issues by giving you an understanding of the underlying cause, relief from the painful symptoms, the tools to prevent reoccurrence and leave you feeling re-energised.

The medical centre in Rogaska Slatina, Slovenia prides itself on its extensive experience in treating gastrointestinal problems. The key to their success is the special water spring, Donat Mg. The unique composition of this healing water, which includes an exceptionally high content of magnesium, means it can be used as a natural substitute for treatment of excess stomach acid, reducing inflammation and preventing painful muscle spasms.

Drinking of the Donat Mg natural mineral water takes place at the famous Mineral water Pavilion. The drinking therapy is a ritual which must be repeated at least three times a day, always from twenty minutes to half an hour before eating. At the beginning of the drinking treatment with the medicinal mineral water, each visitor is given their own glass with a measuring scale, which will accompany them throughout the therapy. Specific mineral and herbal baths followed by a 30-minute massage will be recommended daily to assist with the improvement of health.

Your accommodation with half board is included in price. Alternatively, you can upgrade to the Five Star Hotel Aleksander (From £1,930 per person sharing including the gastro programme and half board).

The Gastro programme includes the following.
