Physicians believe that Mineral Springs facilitate healing in many ways:
Mineral spring bathing gradually increases the temperature of the body, thus killing harmful germs and bacteria.
Mineral spring bathing increases hydrostatic pressure on the body, increasing blood circulation and cell oxygenation. The increased blood flow also helps dissolve and eliminate toxins from the body which brings improved nourishment to vital organs and tissues.
Mineral spring bathing increases body metabolism, including stimulating the secretions of the intestinal track and the liver, aiding in digestion.
Mineral springs contain high amounts of negative ions, which can help promote feelings of physical and psychological well-being.
The direct application of mineralized waters can have a therapeutic effect on diseases of the skin, including psoriasis, dermatitis, and fungal infections. Some mineral waters are also used to help the healing of wounds and other skin injuries.
Trace amounts of minerals such as carbon dioxide, sulfer, calcium, magnesium, and lithium are absorbed by the body and provide healing effects to various body organs and systems. These healing effects can include stimulation on the immune system, leading to enhanced immunity; the production of endorphins; and normalized gland function.
Repeated spring bathing can help normalize the functions of the endocrine glands as well as the functioning of the body's autonomic nervous system.
