The Netherlands, also commonly known as Holland, can readily astonish with its achievements. This country of tulips and mills has one of the best health care systems in Europe, by the opinion of many experts of World Health Organization. Medical services to foreign patients are provided both by private and state medical centres. Their services are practically of equal quality which is top standard. Naturally, the cost of medical services at private clinics is somewhat higher. The prices for medical services in Holland are average for Western Europe, but by some positions they are 5-15% lower than in France, Belgium, or Germany.
Foreign patients most often come to the Netherlands to receive treatment of teeth, heart diseases, nervous system disorders, addictions as well as for delivery.
Many medical centres and private clinics practice folk medicine founded on ancient recipes and methods. These very methods created the basis of preventive treatment of cardio-vascular diseases and nervous system disorders.
Dentists are probably the most popular medical profession in the Netherlands. Each dental clinic is fully staffed with oral hygiene specialists. They skilfully perform preventive tooth cleansing, removal of dental plaque, scaling and polishing, and tooth whitening. Besides, this country provides high quality endodontic treatment.
There are rehabilitation centres in the Netherlands which practice the method of treating heavy drug addiction applying psychedelic substances. They use ibogaine —strong hallucinogenous plant extract — as a remedy for returning patients to normal life. This method is quite new and practiced in only a few European countries, but already proved its high efficiency.
Along with drug addiction, other types of addiction are successfully treated in the Netherlands. Treatment course usually lasts for about a week. The cost of such treatment in other countries of Europe or North America will be several times higher. Statistics also speaks in favour of the Netherlands: the official number of cured patients has almost doubled within the last several years.
According to the WHO experts, the Netherlands is one of the safest destinations around the globe for newborn infants. Qualification level of obstetricians and natural climate of the Netherlands are ideal conditions for child delivery.
Recommended time for treatment: April to June, September to November.
The Netherlands is one of the most picturesque countries of Western Europe. However, apart from the North sea, the Netherlands do not possess natural recreational resort areas which could enter the competition at the market of recovery tourism.

Such water has passed the filtration of chalk soils and contains healthful mineral substances producing positive effect on human organism. Various saunas are vastly popular: Finnish, Roman, Turkish, bio-sauna, sauna with herbal and essential oil vapours. A course of intensive humidity alteration in a sauna applying a variety of essential oils has favourable effect on the organism in general, on human respiratory system, the very first session results in improved blood circulation, excretion of toxins, and smoothness of skin.
Aromatic baths are extremely popular. Cleopatra baths with milk and oils produces a nutritional, relaxing, and rejuvenating effect. A bath with lavender and various herbs helps soften the skin, lemon, rose, and melissa relieve fatigue.
