On the therapeutic properties of mud
TREATMENT OF THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM
The thermal water of this clinic is indicated for the following diseases:
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

- Chronic bronchitis - Asthma, bronchospasm
** Thermal procedures are prescribed only by doctors of the balneological hospital, specialists in hydrology (specialists in the field of research and treatment with thermal waters), who fully controls the treatment of each of the patients during their stay. Hundreds of years ago, thermal waters were used in the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract, including pharyngitis, laryngitis, rhinitis, etc., with good results.
The pharmacological principle of action of these waters is based on the concentration of H₂S, halogenates, sulfates, arsenic compounds and the level of radioactivity, due to which water has antimicrobial property and, thanks to sulfur, has a mucolytic effect. Therapy of the respiratory tract with thermal water has an effect on the mucous membranes. It uses a water temperature similar to body temperature, which we call an indifferent temperature.
According to the treatment plan of the balneological center, we start with the most superficial paths, mucous membranes of the nose and larynx through nasal lavage and gargle. After this, collective nebulisations or procedures in a foggy room or individual procedures are used, using suspended drops of water that will be inhaled and cover the mucous membranes of the nasopharynx, oral cavity, pharynx and larynx, penetrating with the inhaled air and enveloping part of the bronchial mucosa. Aerosols cannot produce such micron-sized small droplets that penetrate the lowest parts of the respiratory system, covering the bronchioles and alveoli. Thus, water penetrates into all parts of the respiratory system.

Regarding inflammatory rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis or ankylosing spondylitis, they are relieved after treatment with thermal waters in a balneological hospital, since the pain is reduced due to the analgesic effect of hydrogen sulfide waters, which proves the effect on the increased excretion of endorphins.
Hydrogen sulfide mud treatment also has an anti-inflammatory effect due to the inhibition of prostaglandin E2 and leukotrienes and a decrease in the secretion of inflammation-causing enzymes such as myeloperoxidase and nitric oxide. The anti-inflammatory effect is quite noticeable in reducing the acute inflammatory processes inherent in these diseases, allowing you to improve the quality of life.

In order to achieve long-term results, it is necessary that the treatment of skin disease is long.
