The farmer and waggoner Johann Schroth developed the Schroth-Cure about 200 years ago in order to heal his knee injury.
The Schroth-Cure is based on the daily use of a sudorific cure pack (cold and damp, heat retention pack), which is meant to assist in the excretion of metabolic waste products.
There are dry days and drinking days during the Schroth-Cure which force the body to cleanse itself. The idea behind this is that the body acts like a sponge, in which is "soaks and wrings". There are 3 dry days a week in which only 125ml of wine
wine (or teas and juices)
are to be consumed. Wine is meant to improve blood circulation during the Schroth-Cure and it also stimulates excretion to take place through the kidneys .
