The wellness is an important part of prevention
The category of wellness includes alimentation, beauty care, exercises, the harmony of body and spirit. The wellness cousin gives priority to the vegetarian meals, so we should eat vegetables and fruits as much as possible, and little fatty meals. It is important to keep an eye on the amount of carbohydrate starch input. Try to take low volume of sugar only, and select the natural ones (fruit-sugar for e.g.). The proper and diversified alimentation provides our body with each vitamin and mineral needed every day. Healthy alimentation requires the sufficient water intake.

SPA in Budapest
Though debated, some people mean that SPA is derived from the latin words “Sanitas Per Aquam” which means healing through water. Budapest has loads of this water and it has private SPAs and public SPAs, all available for you to be spoiled, feel good and be healed!
Hippocrates, father of medicine, was the first to proclaim: Nature is the physician of our diseases.
In fact, Mother Nature has been especially bountiful towards Hungary: the country sits on one of the richest geothermal and medicinal water resources in the world. The abundance of thermal springs in Hungary has led to suggestions that an underground thermal water sea may be hidden below the country. Out of the 1300 springs that have been discovered so far, 80 are in Budapest.
Thermal baths, spas, swimming pools and spa hotels are built next to these springs in almost 70 towns and villages across the country. Treatment may not only be effective for rehabilitation but also for prevention – or simply for pure enjoyment.
In Hungary there are numerous natural facilities on which medicinal tourism and wellness can be built: 1289 thermal sources, 39 spas, 5 medicinal caves, 48 approved mineral waters and 136 medicinal water sources, 4 silt quarries and 1 mofetta.
