[Article in Russian]


The non-medicamental therapeutic modalities find an increasingly wider application for the rehabilitation and maintenance of the health status in man. Speleotherapy is one of such methods. The Republican Speleotherapeutic Hospital of Belarus exploits the underground speleocomplex in which over 42,000 petients with respiratory diseases and allergic pathologies were given the required treatment. The clinical effectiveness of speleotherapy is estimated at 97.3%. Remission persists for 7.0±0.4 months on the average within one year after a course of speleotherapy. Repeated courses are followed by even longer periods of remission (up to 2.5-3 years). It is concluded that speleotherapy is the highly efficient method for the rehabilitation of the patients presenting with respiratory diseases and allergic pathologies.
