Mineral Beauty
 Why does mineral water has a multifaceted effect on the body? It would seem that could be easier - minerals and gases dissolved in the water. However, such a combination of treating many diseases - external and internal. The effect of a combined treatment with mineral baths still celebrated physicians of antiquity, which recommended to "take a bath" almost any disease.

The secret of the amazing efficiency of mineral water in her direction of the impact on the human body. Each component of a natural water, whether mineral or dissolved gas affects a certain way on the various biological mechanisms.

Ah, what a beauty!

At the heart of life, as we know from the forgotten school chemistry course, is the interaction of chemical elements. With a deficit or excess of the human body may be major changes - in appearance and in the internal organs.

Macronutrients   - Those elements whose concentration in the human body is greater than 0, 01%. Such a little of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulfur, chlorine and magnesium. These elements have a major role in determining the structure of tissues and organs.

Micronutrients The content of which is hundredths of a percent, however, is controlled complex physiological processes at all stages of development of the human body. This group includes: iron, zinc, fluoride, strontium, molybdenum, copper, bromine, silicon and other elements.

Finally, ultramicroelements Among which the most important are selenium, chromium and cobalt.

What have all these clarifications of mineral water? Such that each mineral water contains a certain set of elements, which by and carries out its invigorating effect on the body.

Balneotherapy or living water

Balneotherapy - is the application with the medical purpose natural or artificially prepared mineral water. Mineral waters contain elevated concentrations of mineral and organic components, thereby providing a beneficial effect on the human body.

Mineral water - a natural underground water formed in the earth's crust in certain geological conditions.   Medical mineral waters divides into two classes: potable (domestic) and balneological (for outdoor use). Depending on the mineral composition of the water and gas are called: carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, ferrous, bromine, iodine, silica, arsenic, radon (they - radioactive), organically rich mineral waters. Of course, each of us met on the label the name of the mineral water "drinking dining", "hydro", "chloride-sulfate" - all this is a more detailed division of mineral water into subclasses, which are very much like mineral water.

Chemical elements dissolved in the water, while the mineral baths have skin irritation. This type of therapy is recommended primarily for various skin diseases. The name of the mineral baths prepared according to the main action of the compounds.

Salt, or sodium chloride baths Containing common salt in high concentrations in the lower - the other elements - the simplest kind of spa treatment. After taking a bath on the skin remains so-called "salt cloak" - the finest salt shell, which continues to operate for a few hours after the procedure.

During the bath significantly increases blood flow to the skin increases the intensity of metabolic processes, enhances the absorption of oxygen. Salt baths cause changes in the stratum corneum of the skin, reduces water evaporation from the skin, changes thermoregulation, contained in a bath salt "binds" water, thereby moisturizing the skin. Their action is similar to the effect of oil baths.

Along with other beneficial effect of the salt bath can increase the skin's sensitivity to the action of ultraviolet rays. This may explain a good intensity of the sun by the sea. Incidentally, the sea water has a unique composition: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, barium, chromium, iodine, chlorine, manganese, arsenic, silver, gold, uranium, radium. All these substances have a beneficial effect on the human body through the skin receptors while swimming. So an excellent revitalizing effects of marine recreation - not fiction, but very real fact. At its core, sea bathing - Balneotherapy in pure form.

Iodine-bromine baths   have a relaxing, sedative effect, relieve itching skin diseases, normalize muscle tone and vascular function of the endocrine glands, primarily the thyroid gland, reduces blood pressure, has a bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect, that is, stop the action of pathogens. Under the influence of iodine-bromine baths restored the body's defenses.

Sulfide baths   It has one of the strongest chemical influences. Hydrogen sulfide, penetrating through the skin, mucous membranes and respiratory tract into the bloodstream, irritating skin-specific education - the receptors and causes the complex responses of the body. This small part of the assimilated hydrogen sulfide is released through the skin and lungs. When immersed in a bath there is a reddening of the skin, there is a decrease in blood pressure, increased tissue oxygen consumption, increased ventilation. It is particularly important that the sulfide baths regulate the activity of the endocrine glands and normalize metabolism.

Radon baths   contain radioactive gas radon, a naturally occurring, for the specific treatment of artificially prepared. At reception radon baths on the skin form a "active deposit", which has a therapeutic effect, and the accumulation of radon and its decay occur primarily in the skin. Under the influence of radon baths changing the chemical activity of protein molecules, they have a calming effect on the nervous system, eliminate irritability, fatigue, normalizes sleep, reduce pain, has anti-allergic effect. When immersed in radon bath there vasospasm, pallor of the skin. After the procedure, blood vessels expand.

When balneolechenie observed a certain temperature mineral baths. The composition of the water, the duration and the number of procedures must choose a physical therapist.
