Six principles of Modern Mayr Medicine
Core concepts for body, mind and soul
The digestive system, connective and fatty tissues are cleansed and purified through a daily intake of Epsom salts and increased drinking.
Stress within the intestinal tract is reduced through:
- Fasting or a made-to-measure dietary plan
- Increased chewing so most of the digestion process happens in the mouth
The digestive system must learn to carry out its functions. Correct chewing and eating and an individualised diet in everyday life are the basis for lasting repair and regeneration of damaged functions.
Important bases, vitamins, minerals and trace elements that the body needs during therapy are supplied to the body – if necessary.
Daily indoor and outdoor exercise under the guidance of sports scientists increases general fitness, vitality and the success of the therapy. Regular physical exercise improves your overall state of health and protects against diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, depression and arthritis. Ultimately, it is a key element in helping you make the most of your stay at Park Igls.
Periodic fasting can help to work through and eliminate not only physical complaints but also psychological issues. Here at Park Igls we offer medical consultations and psychological counselling, so your stay can also serve as an opportunity for self-discovery.

The most important questions about Modern Mayr Medicine
Good to know
The first step is to move waste products from the connective tissue or fat deposits back into the blood by drinking large amounts of water. This means waste products and toxins circulate temporarily in the blood, which in the short term can lead to headaches or dizziness. However, in the long term these substances are excreted via the kidneys (urine) and liver (bile).
During your treatment we recommend about one litre of liquids per 20 kilos of body weight per day. In practice this means if you weigh up to 50 kilos you should drink at least 2 litres. Guests who weigh over 50 kilos should drink at least 3 litres per day. And anyone over 90 kilos should drink around 4 litres daily. When it comes to what you should drink, we recommend spring water, tea or mineral water (either still or slightly sparkling).
Absolutely! There is still no more effective measure for increasing the circulation of blood to the liver and thus detoxifying the liver than the classic liver wrap. These days the benefits of liver wraps can even be proven using ultrasound. Two towels, a bath towel and a hot water bottle are all you need for a successful treatment with proven advantages for the success of your cure.
Kneipp water therapy was developed many years ago by a priest, Sebastian Kneipp, and has become a popular treatment. It uses a contrast of warm and cold water to stimulate the circulation of blood to the arms, legs and other parts of the body. Benefits include a strengthening of the overall circulatory system as well as improved blood supply to the extremities and the prevention or mitigation of inflammations.
Yes, absolutely! This was made possible by the development of Modern Mayr Cuisine with its protein supplements. These prevent excessive muscle loss through exercise. In contrast to the earlier low-protein diets, where you were only allowed to take leisurely walks, nowadays there is nothing to be said against intensive exercise during a Mayr Cure.
