Miraculous mud
Modern medicine skillfully combines both advanced technologies and millennial practices. The second is mud treatment or, in scientific terms, peloid therapy. Therapeutic mud is silt deposits, which contain a lot of both organic and inorganic compounds, minerals, salts, trace elements and biologically active substances.
Among the resort areas of the Krasnodar region, they are rich in such mud (or peloids) Temryuk, Yeisk districts, as well as Anapa and Sochi. There are deposits in lakes, estuaries, mud volcanoes and hills.
You can apply therapeutic mud both on the whole body in the form of wraps, and on its individual parts, for example, on hands, face, legs. The substances improve metabolism, blood microcirculation, help lymph outflow, reduce edema, compact the capillary system, have a massage and peeling effect. In addition, such a recovery has a positive effect on the overall immunity, which is especially important now, when the coronavirus is still a real threat. When you wash off the dirt from your body, you will immediately feel the velvety skin, it will become as if ten years younger – more elastic, saturated with oxygen and trace elements, the naked eye will notice radiance and well-groomed, as after a course of SPA treatments or the use of premium cosmetics.

The list of diseases for which peloid therapy is recommended is so extensive that it is unlikely to fit on one printed sheet. We will list only some of them: diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, skin, respiratory organs, heart and blood vessels; sunburn; inflammation; arthrosis, arthritis and rheumatism; gynecological disorders, diseases of the urinary and muscular systems, and many, many others. The fact is that the composition of the therapeutic mud of the Krasnodar Territory is not inferior, and in many ways even surpasses the mud of the Dead Sea. Therefore, for miraculous properties, tourists come to the Kuban not only from all over Russia, but also from many countries of the world.
The Taman peninsula, that is, Temryuk and part of the Anapa district, is the main center of mud treatment.
There are about forty mud volcanoes that were formed many millions of years ago. The largest of them look like huge bowls. The most famous mud volcanoes of the Taman Peninsula are Tizdar, Shugo, Akhtanizovskaya Sopka, Miska, Azov Hell, Karabetova Sopka, Hephaestus. However, not only volcanoes are suppliers of useful mud, but also estuaries such as Burgazsky, Vityazevsky, Tsokur and Kiziltashsky. The latter, by the way, is the largest in the south of Russia. Its area is more than 137 km2, and its depth is up to 1.5 meters. In the north, the Kiziltash estuary connects with the Tsokur Estuary, which was once fresh. The Vityazevsky estuary is smaller than the Kiziltashsky estuary in terms of area, but not in terms of health value. Its area is 60 km2, and its depth is 1.5 meters. The concentration of salt in the mud of this estuary is 15 grams per liter, and in a dry summer it even reaches 70 grams.

The Bugaz estuary is also located in the Anapa district, it stretches from the southeast to the northwest along the Black Sea, from which it is separated by only a narrow spit. Once this estuary was fresh, but now it is very salty. On the northwestern shore of the Bugaz estuary, the mud hills of Polivadina and Makotra rise.

If you are going to Veselovka, be sure to visit the Salty Lake. It is located between the villages of Artyushenko and Veselovka. It is better to come there from May 25 to August 25, when there is a minimum amount of rain. The lake stretches for 3 km. Its mud is saturated with minerals, sulfides and organic substances. The lake is easily accessible from Veselovka – by car or on foot about 4 km.
Mud baths can also be taken
in the Yeisk district.
Not far from the district center is the Khan Lake. According to legend, it got its name because of the Crimean khan, who many years ago stopped on the shore of the lake to rest, bathed in it and felt an unprecedented surge of strength, which even built his palace on that place and began to regularly use mud from this lake for healing. The area of Khan lake is 108 km2, but the average depth is less than a meter, so in summer almost all the water from the lake evaporates, exposing the healing elements. Their useful properties were known in the last century – in the 20s, a hospital was even opened on the shore of the lake, and during the war, mineral mud was used to treat wounded soldiers.
Useful components are delivered from the Imereti deposit, located in the Adler district between the Mzymta and Psou rivers. The properties of Sochi mud are similar to those of Anapa, but due to the fact that they do not contain iron and hydrogen sulfide, they are more suitable for the treatment of children and weakened patients. In the middle of the XX century, scientists tried to enrich the mud with hydrogen sulfide, which was taken from the Matsesta mineral water; this combination made the treatment unique.
Mud treatment, created by nature and supplemented by scientists, helps not only to cope with ailments, but also to feel younger, fresher even for a healthy person. A unique combination of trace elements gives strength and fills the body with freshness.
Of course, as with any procedure, there are also contraindications here. Therefore, before you "fall into the dirt face", we recommend that you consult a doctor. If you are determined to seriously take care of your health, numerous sanatoriums of the Krasnodar region will help you with this, where there is also such a service as mud treatment.
