Speleotherapy information

Patients with rheumatic polyarthritis had first ever been treated in solutional caves with microclimate being in calcium ions, as well as in stalactite and stalagmite mines. Starting with mid-20 century, rise in the number of highly allergic patients worldwide began bothering physicians.
Long search discovered that
Diseases of this sort are cured in salt mines.
These mines are operative in Germany, Hungary, Belarus and Ukraine. There are salt mines with predominant sodium chlorine ions.
The mines have been active since 1968 in the Polish town of Krakow
(Velichko mine); Ukrainian settlement of Solotvino, Uzhgorod since 1979.

Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic  (a distance from a town of Nakhchivan to the Physiotherapeutic Center is
9,8 km; from the Center to the mine 2,4 km.). Mine compartments are active at the height of
1173 m  above the sea level; at a distance of 12,2 km from a town of Nakhchivan in two main mountain workshops of a salt
Salt pit, 300 m away from the entrance at a depth of 110 m, in 9 main processed strata.

Below cited is the microclimate in the underground compartment of mines:
Altitude above the sea level – 1173 m
Temperature   – 18-20
Atmospheric pressure  – 740 mm of mercury.
Relative humidity – 24-50 %
Air speed – 0,1 m/s
Highly dispersion ions  Na+, Cl -: in the absence of patients –  17,5 mg/m 3; in the presence of patients - 12,5 mg/m3.
Oxygens – 20%
Noise level – 15-20 Db

There are no hemolytic micrococcus and mycelial fungi.
Bacterial number is 650-850 m3 (microbial number in air above earth surface is down 8-10 times).
Underground compartment consists of 9 main processed layers: 2 – for men; 3 – for women; 1 – for children; 2 – bathrooms and 1 – rest hall. Length of the layers – 30-40 m, width – 8-10 m, height – 3,5 m.

Applying to medical institutions, patients are adapted for 3-4-days at the underground compartment. Then patients are under medical treatment from 1800 (1900) to 800 (900) hours with the help of speleotherapy made of 16-20 sessions; children – 10-15 sessions. The terms may vary depending upon heaviness of sickness and period of speleotherapy. Together with stay in the mine, patients are treated with medical preparations, physiotherapeutic procedures, medical-physical culture and body massage therapy. Medical preparations are prescribed as few as possible. If a patient takes hormonal preparations, it is essential то reduce them gradually.

As distinct from other salt mines, advantages of the therapeutic agents of the Nakhchivan Physiotherapy Center «Duzdag» lie in the fact that mines are located horizontally. Before patients descend into the underground compartment, they are exposed to adaptation. Besides, a mine’s ventilation is natural; microbes are at the low level, allergens are absent.

Note that patients from various regions of our Republic and from abroad apply to the Nakhchivan Physiotherapy Center «Duzdag».
The longstanding professional experience reveals that 80-86% of senior age group patients with bronchial asthma of light, medium and high heaviness and 96-98% of children gained in health.

The treatment is provided when a patient has no attack or is remitted. Patients taking meditation in the mine have health-promoting effect on
3-5 days of treatment. Thus, expectorations are reduced; no asphyxia is observed.
Heaviness of attacks is reduced, dry and wet rhonchus in lungs.
Patients are recommended to take treatments once or twice a year (provided a consistent treatment within 3 years).

Speleotherapy is an effective method of non-specific treatment of bronchial-pulmonic apparatus. Account has also to be taken of speleotherapy indication and contraindications.
