The seaside holiday is already a therapy by itself, the “thalasso-therapy” (from Greek φαλασσος= mare).
The “talassoterapia” is essential in childhood, in adolescence, during pregnancy and in old age in order to integrate vitamin D in our body. The above mentioned, are the “critic moments” of every person’s life, when our bones need more vitamin D than ever. Without sun there may be rickets, osteoporosis and fractures.
Sea and sun are also a great good remedy for obstructive respiratory disorders, for children with recurrent respiratory infections, for nose-bronchial allergic inflammation, which usually are treated with medicated aerosols, for mood disturbs (as depression).
After few days by the sea, respiration improves significantly, olfactory capacity increases (and as a result the appetite) and sleep is optimized.
