March 1st, 2011

Mud treatment is the second of the main methods of sanatorium treatment. Stocks opened in the therapeutic mud Sestroretsk since 1902. They belong to a group of silt mud, which formed in lakes, seas and estuaries. Sestroretsk gittievye clay contain valuable trace elements: manganese, zinc, copper, cobalt. Unlike other mud Sestroretsk Gitte have one unique feature – the ability to deep autooxidation. Increased acidity provides significant antimicrobial activity.

On the medical and operational characteristics, mud '' if nothing substantial is not inferior to the world-famous counterparts, and in some indicators (environmental friendliness, antibacterial, antifungal properties) is superior to many of them. Compared with the Dead Sea, activated Sestroretsk Gitte have lower salinity and, therefore, not so intensely dry and irritate sensitive skin, a unique macro-and trace element composition, and especially the high content of manganese and zinc, have a strong antifungal activity. All components mud 'work' as a whole. Under the influence of mud therapy activates adaptive mechanisms are restored impaired function of the disease, improves blood and lymph circulation, normalize metabolic processes substances, improving the tissue respiration, stimulates regeneration processes. Therapeutic mud has on a complex organism salutary influence. Due to its chemical composition dirt intensifies blood and, hence, all metabolic processes in the skin. Therefore, the mud pack improves trophic skin, normalize sebaceous and sweat glands, stimulate hair growth. Located in the mud mineral salts, trace elements and organic matter contribute to the normalization of microbial imbalance, have a coagulating and keratolytic action stimulates maturation of collagen structures and inhibit autoimmune processes, provide antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

The action of mud procedures are not limited to the time of its implementation, there is a period-effect, the effect of each procedure is summarized and stably fixed. Methods mud response to mud depends not only on the chemical composition of the dirt, temperature and duration of exposure, but also on the functional state nervous, cardiovascular and other systems. Therefore, the mud should be done after consulting a physician and in accordance with the advice. Indications for use mud disease musculoskeletal system (osteoarthritis deformans, osteochondrosis, myalgia, tendovaginitah, etc.), diseases of the peripheral nervous system (radiculitis, neuritis, polyneuritis, neuralgia, ganglionevrity, progressive muscular dystrophy, etc.), diseases of the central nervous system (the effects of intracranial injury, myelopathy, a condition after removal of the intervertebral disc, the effects of perinatal injuries and children cerebral palsy). internal diseases (chronic bronchitis, gastritis, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, liver, intestine, gall bladder, etc.), diseases of the female and male genital organs (chronic adnexitises, salpingoofarity, vulvovaginitis, prostatitis, epididymitis, etc.); skin diseases (psoriasis, scleroderma, ichthyosis, onychomycosis, alopecia), diseases of the ear, nose and throat (sinusitis, chronic tonsillitis, chronic atrophic and subatroficheskie laryngitis, neuritis of the auditory nerve). dental disease (periodontal, arthrosis of the temporal jaw-joint). Furthermore mud used as an effective cosmetic. Contraindications to the use of mud acute stage of inflammation or exacerbation of chronic inflammatory processes, systemic blood diseases, bleeding tendency, bleeding benign and malignant neoplasms; pronounced thyrotoxicosis, hypertension stage iii, ischemic heart disease (CHD), pulmonary heart disease, fever; endometriosis; hyperestrogenia.
