Stress is at the root of a cacophony of health issues. Constant fatigue, insomnia, lack of concentration, irate behaviour, back aches, eating disorders and many other physical and mental conditions can be symptoms of chronic stress.

We invite you to improve and maintain your health by taking preventative measures against stress. Parkhotel Igls‘ Medical Director Dr Peter Gartner, shares with you seven predominant reasons why medically supervised time-out results in long term improvements for body and mind. Read on!

Mayr’s Stress Busters

1. Rest & recovery
Regular rest periods form part of your Mayr time, and should be enjoyed either during or after treatments. Resting is a great way to start the process of reducing stress levels.

2. A stabilised gut
A comprehensibly cleansed and stabilised intestinal environment increases serotonin levels in the gut, and more serotonin means less stress.

3. Discovering the art of chewing
Thorough chewing and insalivation are fundamental aspects of Mayr’s nutritional philosophy. This causes food to be predigested and produces a feeling of satiety while you are still eating – this too is a result of increased serotonin levels. Again, more serotonin means less stress.

4. Exercise
The individually tailored diet levels of Modern Mayr Medicine allow guests to exercise regularly during their stay. We know from sports and exercise medicine that regular exercise has a positive effect on stress reduction.

5. Lifestyle adjustments
A regular daily routine is the basis of any stay at the Parkhotel Igls. This helps you relearn how to switch off, and frees you from persistent sensory overload. Restoring structure to your day helps you deal with everyday life and make adjustments to your lifestyle – thereby reducing stress triggers.

6. Self-discovery
In addition to cleansing, resting, training, substitution and exercise, Modern Mayr Medicine’s sixth principle, self-discovery, is another vital ingredient for good health. Our self-discovery programme comprises sessions (in small groups or one-to-one) in which you learn to deal with stress and distinguish between healthy (eustress) and unhealthy stress (distress). Eustress is facilitated, and distress forestalled.

7. Additional treatments …
… including massages, craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, electrotherapy and infusions have a lasting effect on the indirect consequences of stress such as muscle tension and migraine.
