As fit as a fiddle even on cold days

Are you sick and tired of constant sniffling, sneezing, coughing and other winter health nuisances? Show them the door and take care of your health before the season of colds and other illnesses arrives. Visiting one of the Slovenian natural health resorts is an excellent choice for strengthening your immune system and preparing your body for winter’s maladies with healthy food and outdoor activities.

Unwind in a sauna

The sauna is probably one of our first associations on strengthening the immune system. Sweating in a sauna removes harmful substances from the body, while the combination of heating up and cooling down the body is a form of exercise for our vascular system. Saunas relax the muscles and the brain, offering a true sanctuary for relieving our everyday stress.

Relax your breathing with salts

Its beneficial effects on our respiratory system and skin make salt a highly desired ingredient in the “health cocktail” that protects against viruses.

Here are some suggestions for salt therapy spa experiences to make your choice slightly easier.
