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)


Both forms of neurodermatitis are characterized by inflammatory skin findings and both forms of bronchial asthma feature a hyper-reactivity of the bronchial system.

The positive influence of whole body cold on the symptoms of neurodermatitis (dermatitis and itching) and bronchial asthma, as with psoriasis, was detected rather by chance amongst individuals who had indeed suffered from one of these diseases, but were undergoing cold treatment for an inflammatory joint disease. Now many neurodermatologists and increasingly also asthma specialists are seeking the services of cold-therapeutic centers in order to achieve a relief of the often severe conditions that they treat.

For further useful information about whole-body cryotherapy at -110 ° C, and the mechanisms of action, we recommend the book "The Power of the Cold" by Prof. Dr. sc med Winfried Papenfuss, published by Edition K Wolfsegg. Large parts of the content of this website were taken from this book.
