Mr. Hong, the owner of two hot spring resorts in Taiwan as indicated in the last post, is obviously a big fan of hot spring therapy. He's been trying his efforts to convince tourists and local hot spring goers that hot spring is more than just for relaxing fun and leisure. Mr. Hong is using his over 30 years of expertise and claiming himself as a professional water therapist who help promoting that hot spring can serve as a healing treatment. He showed two physical check reports from a client who used to be a diabetes patient. The first report showed a high blood sugar level. After two and half months of hot spring therapy, this patient had another physical check. The report was surprisingly showing his blood sugar level turned back to normal. The physician who did the physical check was so shocked and reassure with the computer data again because that looked like a mistake. As you'd expect, that was really nothing wrong with the report. Mr. Hong is so confident that a six weeks treatment plan can heal a lot of chronic diseases and make certain improvements.

Japanese has been doing a lot of research and study on hot spring since hundreds of years ago. They already develop a hot spring culture for health purpose. There are over fifty specialized hot spring hospitals in Japan.

Hot Spring, according to those enthusiast s and the people in hot spring resorts, can almost cure everything. Mr. Hong, an owner of two hot spring resorts in Taiwan, has already enjoyed hot spring for over 30 years. He said diabetes, gout (metabolic arthritis), sequelae after intake of steroids, liver diseases, dark spots on skin, spring can have healing power for these problems. It's because hot spring can help discharge the deposits of medicine and waste inside our body. Many doctors also recommend spa to help sweating and metabolism. However, these doctors didn't comment on the healing effects for the diseases above indicated by the industry.

A hot spring guest climbed out from the pool and take a break before his third time going back in. Although it's already 5 minutes, he can still clearly feel the shocking refreshment brought by the heartbeat. His head still sweating like raindrops. This is how he described it, "This is the first time I know that I can sweat this way. It's also my first time I found that the exciting heartbeats can last for this long. It feels like I just had some aerobic exercise. The author of a book called "Get healthy in 8 weeks" has his point of view on sweating in hot spa and spring, "Sweating not only can help release the extra heat, it help discharge the body waste as well, which is an important part of the recovery cycle. If you take too much salt (sodium), medicine or poisonous chemicals, this is a good excretion for the body. And It's going to help relieve the burden of liver and kidneys.
