Truskavets mineral waters

“Naftusia”

Naftusia is the most famous and unique in its effect Truskavets mineral water.* It may be attributed to brackish waters  and its composition is hydrocarbon calcium magnesium.

Besides salts it includes a range of biologically active substances of oil composition, its name is derived from it.

Some of “Naftusia”`s peculiarities might be explained for the presence of these substances as well as iron, lithium, copper, lead and silver. The basis  of the influence  of “Naftusia” on the organism is its dramatically manifested diuretic effect, that facilitates leaching from urinary tract sand and small stones, and on the whole, removing “toxins” from the body i.e. unnecessary products of metabolism. Accumulation of the latter takes place when functions of liver and kidneys are disrupted, metabolism is disturbed  and so on.

“Naftusia” normalizes metabolism, improves the functional condition of the nervous system, it has got cholagogic qualities. A number of stomach and intestine diseases occur against the background of liver, kidney, pancreas and other organs, and gastro-intestinal illnesses in their  turn might be the cause of the diseases of these organs. That’s why the receiving of “Naftusia” for the considerable quantity of patients with gastro-intestinal illnesses is very reasonable.

Spring № 1 “Mariya”

It is brackish water, which composition is sulphate-bicarbonate-sodium-magnesium. It comprises iron, carbon-dioxide and hydrogen sulphide in slight quantities. “Mariya” doesn’t stay in stomach for a long time neither it irritates it, but at the same time it rarefies  gastric mucus and contributes to its removal. This mineral water soothes inflammation of gastric mucosa reduces the secretion of gastric juice and its acidity (it is explained by the duodenum effect on the stomach of where water falls quickly). In a similar manner water of spring № 1 effects the intestine, soothing its moving *function (perestalsis), diminishing gripes and lowing the secretion of gastric juice,  when ulcers of the stomach and duodenum occur.

Spring №2 Sofia

Medio-mineralized water “Sophia’s  composition is sodium chloride, calcium magnesium with minor impurities of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. “Sofia” stimulates the secretion of gastric glands and thus increases the number and gastric acidity, it also irritates mucus in the stomach, helping to remove it. Water source number 2 is used to treat chronic gastritis with low acidity or complete absence of gastric juice hydrochloric acid.

Spring №3 “Bronislava”

The chemical composition of it is chloride-sulphate-sodium-calcium water. It is used to treat chronic diseases of nasopharynx, laryngitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis in the form of rinses, inhalation and nasal showers. It thins the mucus accumulated on the mucosa of the upper respiratory tract, and if chronic inflammation take place , soothes inflammation

Spring “Yuzia”

Incorporates in its composition  the substance of glycerine origin acting on the skin, giving it special elasticity.

Mineral salt “Barbara”

Extracted from the mineral water source № 4. It is used for duodenal intubation, washings intestine and as a laxative.

Natural healing properties of Barbara have a significant impact on the body’s defenses, increase immunity.

Mineral baths

Water springs number 6 “Edward”, № 7 “Ferdinand”, № 8 “Emmanuel”, № 9 “Anna”

Used for mineral and sulfur-salt bath. All these waters are highly mineralized  and contain free hydrogen sulfide. In addition, the resort  also uses carbonic and pearl baths.

The basis of beneficial effects of mineral baths on the human body is their effect on the central nervous system through the skin nerve endings. This may explain the mental equilibrium and peace that the patient often feels when sitting in a bath after its recieving, often while falling asleep.

The therapeutic effect of the mineral bath depends on physicochemical and gaseous composition of water, its temperature and method of application. Equally important is the duration and frequency of bathing. On patients with gastrointestinal illnesses baths act in a reassuring way, reduce pain, spasms of the stomach and intestines. Patients with concomitant diseases of the circulatory system, hypertension, improve their  blood circulation, reduces and often comes back to normal arterial blood pressure. This has a positive effect on the function of all organs and body systems, in particular  the digestive system. Mineral baths promote effective treatment of osteochondrosis, arthritis, arthrosis and myositis.

Besides  bath, the resort uses hydrotherapy in the form of showers Charcot, circular, ascending, hydro and  underwater ones.

Ozocerite

This is natural oil pitch product. It contains oils, neutral pitches, asphaltenes, nitrogen, sulfur, iron, potassium, sodium, and biologically active substances. Dewatered is called the medical ozokerite.

Ozokerite has a high heat capacity and low thermal conductivity. During the application (overlay) wax on the skin, the substances it contains, act in a certain way  on the patient as through the nervous system, and through the blood, some of its component parts penetrate through the skin,.

It is also of  importance  the ability of ozokerite to  shrink when cooled. The gradual compression promotes deeper warming the place where it is imposed. Applications of  wax act in an  anti-inflammatory and slightly anesthetic way , take off spasms, reduce moving and secretory function of the stomach and intestines. As the thermal process, ozokerite has a calming effect throug the skin on the central nervous system of the patient.

Ozokeritotherapy in Truskavets is used for liver and biliary tract, nephrolithiasis and salt diathesis, diseases of the joints, gynecological diseases and related diseases of peripheral nervous system.
