The muds are constituted by a solid and liquid component.
The solid component has an inorganic base that consists primarily of clay and an organic component combining micro flora (bacteria, algae, diatoms, protozoa, etc.), micro fauna, humus, humus-mineral compounds and plants of a different nature, deriving mainly from the phase of maturation of the same sludge or from their previous use (cell debris, secretions, etc.). The liquid component mainly includes the water contained in the original mud, which impregnates the mud in the source field, and mineral water which is matured mud.
That which comes from the source is subjected to maceration for a long time in the mineral water so that the clay granules undergo a transformation, changing the chemical and chemical-physical properties of the water in which they are put to macerate. Mineral water contributes to the process of maturation and to the mineralization of the sludge. The contribution of microorganisms and algae are also key.
How do muds work?
The curative action of the modified muds is not only from the heat, even if the temperature triggers important reactions, but also from the minerals that they contain. Mud carries out a regenerating action on the metabolism, on the joint and nerve endings of the human body.
Sweating resulting from their application determines a real displacement of the fluids by intracellular to extracellular spaces. All this is positive, because it establishes an exchange between the cells and external environment. The skin absorbs nutrients and metabolic waste yields elements.
When are muds prescribed?
Muds are used for muscle pains due to tearing and bruising, headaches, arthritis, gout, back pain and bronchitis.
