THERMAL WATERS

Oligo mineral magnesium bicarbonate calcium water “S. GIACOMO”. San Giacomo water has this name in honour of the famous Franciscan San Giacomo della Marca, who predicated for a long time in these places. Regionally and nationally, this is a widely known water since 1923 thanks to its marked ionic equilibrium and its extreme bacteriological purity.

The mineral sulphurous water “TERRO”. This water has been collected in the 80s in Pianello area, in Sarnano. It belongs to the wide family of sulphurous waters, more exactly, to the group of salt-sulphurous waters that boast an ancient tradition in the history of medical hydrology thanks to high therapeutic properties. Hydrogen sulphide is the active element of these waters that have to be used directly at the spring and not in bottle because the hydrogen sulphide, if it is bottled, tends to bind to other ions forming salts, which make the water scarcely effective for therapeutic use.

In the inhalation therapies, it is particularly suitable for chronic diseases of respiratory system (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, catarrhal chronic bronchitis, asthmatic bronchitis, pulmonary emphysema etc.), for otolaryngology diseases (chronic rhinitis, hypertrophic and atrophic rhinitis, chronic pharyngitis, chronic tonsillitis, chronic laryngitis, dysphonia of smoker people, recurrent tracheitis, rhinogenic deafness and otitis of middle ear).

In the balneotherapy it is suitable for rheumatic diseases (chronic arthrosis and arthritis, aftermath of articular injuries, skull fractures and extra-articular rheumatism), for skin diseases (acne, allergic erythema, eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis etc.).

In the gynaecological cures, it is suitable for: vaginitis, kraurosis vulvar, adnexitis, catarrhal cervicitis of various origin, secondary infertility.

The salt-sulphurous water Terro has been approved by the Italian National Health Service for balneotherapy, inhalation treatments, rhinogenic deafness and gynaecological diseases through vaginal douches.

Oligo mineral calcium – bicarbonate water “TRE SANTI”. It complements the already known mineral water “S.GIACOMO”. Its poor content of magnesium and bicarbonate, the scarce kidney reabsorption and the chemical equilibrium of its trace elements facilitate digestion, diuresis and elimination of uric acids in excess.

Oligo Mineral Magnesium Bicarbonate Calcium Water “S. GIACOMO”

San Giacomo water has this name in honour of the famous Franciscan San Giacomo della Marca, who predicated for a long time in these places. Regionally and nationally, this is a widely known water since 1923 thanks to its marked ionic equilibrium and its extreme bacteriological purity.

Mineral water cure

San Giacomo water is a mineral magnesium bicarbonate calcium water. It is neutral and it contains an optimal quantity of magnesium, potassium, traces of lithium and other minerals in smaller quantities. Thanks to its characteristics, it is easily absorbed by the digestive tract and consequently channelled to kidney and liver.

Because of its low content of sodium and of its weak mineralisation, this is an exceptional drainage water that provokes a good diuresis with washing action for urinary tract and local antispasmodic effect. Moreover, it stimulates the increase of uric acid’s metabolism, avoiding the formation of crystals that can settle in the urinary tract and can form kidney stones and gravel. Used in the mineral water cure, San Giacomo water is suitable for kidney stones and gravel, chronic and acute inflammations of urinary tract (pyelitis, cystitis, urethritis etc.), results of glomerulonephritis, typical and atypical gout.

It should be drunk slowly and without a meal, after medical examination and prescription, in a defined quantity varying from one to four litre/day. It has also a stimulating action on the digestive and hepatic system, favouring so the bile secretion.

It improves the digestion and it is suitable for dyspepsia and calculous gall bladder. San Giacomo water can also produce laxative effects, especially in people affected by gastrointestinal atony and constipation connected to stress and indigestion.

For these properties, for the presence of bicarbonate ions and for low content of nitrates, it is recommended to dissolve milk powder during young children’ weaning.

Mineral Salt-sulphurous Water “TERRO”

This water has been collected in the 80s in Pianello area, in Sarnano. It belongs to the wide family of sulphurous waters, more exactly, to the group of salt-sulphurous waters that boast an ancient tradition in the history of medical hydrology thanks to high therapeutic properties.

Hydrogen sulphide is the active element of these waters that have to be used directly at the spring and not in bottle because the hydrogen sulphide, if it is bottled, tends to bind to other ions forming salts, which make the water scarcely effective for therapeutic use.

In the inhalation cures, it is particularly suitable for chronicle diseases of respiratory system (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, catarrhal chronic bronchitis, asthmatic bronchitis, pulmonary emphysema etc), for otolaryngology diseases (chronic rhinitis, hypertrophic and atrophic rhinitis, chronic pharyngitis, chronic tonsillitis, chronic laryngitis, dysphonia of smoker people, recurrent tracheitis, rhinogenic deafness and otitis of middle ear). In the balneotherapy it is suitable for rheumatic diseases (chronic arthrosis and arthritis, aftermath of articular injuries, skull fractures and extra-articular rheumatism), for skin diseases (acne, allergic erythema, eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis etc.). In the gynaecological cures, it is suitable for: vaginitis, kraurosis vulvar, adnexitis, catarrhal cervicitis of various origin, secondary infertility.

The salt-sulphurous water Terro has been approved by the Italian National Health Service for balneotherapy, inhalation treatments, rhinogenic deafness and gynaecological diseases through vaginal douches.

BALNEOTHERPY – Balneotherapy is practised through the immersion of body for about 15 minutes in baths fuelled with thermal sulphurous water that it is usually kept at a temperature varying from 35° to 38°. In rheumatic diseases, balneotherapy relaxes muscles, reduces joint tenderness and stimulates blood microcirculation. In dermatology, it has a keratolytic, keratoplatic, antiseborrheic and anti-inflammatory action and it is particularly effective for treatment of burn’s consequences.

The round of treatment is made of 12 bathing, eventually integrated by massage therapy program or painkiller rehabilitation therapy, mostly used in case of rheumatic diseases.

INHALATION THERAPIES – sulphurous inhalation cures are particularly suitable for chronic hyper secretory diseases of lower and upper respiratory tract. The mucolytic, eutrophic and immunostimulant action of waters on mucous membranes, makes the inhalation therapy a very good action for prevention and cure of respiratory diseases.

The bactericide and decongestant action of thermal waters helps not only to re-establish compromised functions, but it is effective as preventive therapy.

These cures can be practised in different ways:
Inhalations – sulphurous water is shattered in big particles (around 100 micron of diameter and conveyed by a steam current. Patient stays in front of the dedicated device at a distance of around 40-50 centimetres from the dispensing nozzle. Patient inhales this sulphurous steam that goes to the upper and medium airways at a temperature of about 38°.

This procedure has to be repeated one time per day for a minimum of 12 days.

This treatment is particularly recommended for disease of upper airways and bronchial branches and of middle ear. It is associated to aerosol, nasal douches, nebulisations and insufflations tube tympanic according to diseases.

Aerosol– mineral water is divided in homogeneous particles of small dimensions with a diameter of ¾ micron, in order to reach the last branches of bronchial tree, in the cavities of sinus and middle ear. Water particles are introduced nose-only or orally through the nasal fork, mask and snorkel.

This procedure has to be repeated one time per day for a minimum of 12 days. It is recommended for disease of upper and lower airways and of middle ear. It is usually associated to inhalations, nasal douches, humage, nebulisation, insufflations tube tympanic according to diseases.

Nebulisation – mineral water, transformed in mist, is given to patient in a dedicated environment saturated with 30/40 micron water particles that penetrate deeply in the respiratory tract. This treatment has to be practised in a collective space.

Humage – Sulphurous water as gas can be used. It saturates the environment with hydrogen sulphide. This treatment can be collective as well as individual and it is particularly suitable for children and old people.

Both therapies are recommended for diseases of lower airways and can replace inhalations in cases of bronchial asthma and BPCO (bronchopneumonia chronic obstructive). In this case, humage can be associated to aerosol. As adjuvant in paediatric disease, it can be combined with inhalations and aerosol.

Nasal douches – thermal water is introduced, thorough a small probe, in the nasal cavities in an alternative way, so that water penetrates from a naris and comes out from the other one. This kind of washing allows the cleansing and the stimulation of mucous membranes, releasing them from crusts and stagnate secretions.

This stream of thermal water provokes an immediate fluidization and washing of secretions in the nasal cavity and in the nasopharyngeal district, allowing also the cleansing of secretions in the paranasal sinus and in the tubal ostium.
To correctly practise the nasal douche, patient have to ben head forward and laterally, placing the beaker and alternating between right and left nostril.
This is the best therapy to integrate and enrich inhalation cures, making them more effective and lasting.

It is particularly recommended in rhinopathy crusted and in hyper secretory disease of upper airways, in hypertrophic, vasomotor and allergic rhinitis.

Endotympanic Insufflation – the sulphurous gas is channelled directly in the Eustachian tube and in the tympanic cavity with different methods according to the age of patient and to the anatomic features of interested parties (politserisation or tubal catheterization). Since ear diseases are strictly connected to upper airways diseases, it is necessary to associate endotympanic insufflations to inhalation cures (catarrhal otitis, children and adult tubal stenosis).

In fact, the course for rhinogenic deafness combines endotympanic insufflations with one or more inhalation treatments (inhalations, aerosol, nebulisation etc.) and requires the preventive audiometry of doctor.

Vaginal douches – the active substances of thermal waters are useful for the health and the wellness of women. Vaginal douches are particularly suitable to tackle inflammations (hyper secretive and dry vaginitis, vulvitis, adnexitis), sterility, outcomes of hysterectomy and dryness of genital tract during menopause. Vaginal douches favourites the natural re-establishment of PH element and bacterial flora. Vaginal douches are usually followed by a sulphurous hot bath.

Oligo Mineral Calcium-Bicarbonate Water “TRE SANTI”

It complements the already known mineral water “S.GIACOMO”. Its poor content of magnesium and bicarbonate, the scarce kidney reabsorption and the chemical equilibrium of its trace elements facilitate digestion, diuresis and elimination of uric acids in excess.

Mineral water therapy

It should be drunk slowly and without a meal, after medical visit and prescription, in a defined quantity varying from one to four litre/day. Even if it has some features similar to the previous mentioned water, Tre Santi water is different for its scarce concentration of sodium and for its strong diuretic activity very important for diseases of urinary tract. It contains also magnesium in smaller quantities that favours digestion.

The regular use of at least two litres of Tre Santi water per day corresponds to the calcium’s quantity contained in a glass of milk (100 g). This means that it is particularly suitable for diseases requiring the intake of ionised calcium (Ca++), as for example bone growth of children and calcium deficiency in old people (osteoporosis) if these patients cannot assume milk and milk derivative

Balneoterapy for osteoarticular diseases

There is a strong relation between ions of bicarbonate and calcium that after being absorbed by the skin reach directly the bone structure to settle there. This process is enabled by the bloodstream.

The possibility of absorption of the elements contained in water is enhanced by hydro massage as well as by external stimulus: thermic stimulus, hypertonia, pressure, dwell time of the immersed body. All cutaneous inherent factors have to be considered as for example sebaceous secretion and perspiration, enzyme activity, layers of panniculus adipose and oedema.

Also general inherent factors as humoral conditions, hormonal elements have to be taken into consideration. Among these factors, the trophic clutch of hydro massage has primary importance. Similarly to manual massage, the hydric pressure on body produces movement and heat on all underneath layers. Heat is absorbed, while movement provokes active hyperaemia, capillary erythema, activation of venular circulation, release of vasoactive substances and adrenergic stimulations.

Balneotherapy for vascular diseases and aesthetics

Balneotherapy through underwater massage with single jet at 1/3 atmospheres directly managed by a specialised operator, is also particularly suitable for situations of peripheral vascular diseases with or without oedema.
Ozonisation of thermal water is mostly recommended in situations of scarce circulation in cutaneous tissue. The ozone (O. ) released at tissue level enhances the oxygenation of tissue where it has settled.

The jet used as deep massage of cutaneous subcutaneous tissues of legs, from soles of the feet to groin area creates a real lymphatic drainage that drains all lymphatic liquids in the venous stream. This hydro massage induces a thermic effect and enhances active hyperaemia, capillary vasodilatation, activation of venular circulation and favouring consequently the elimination of metabolites from cutaneous tissues’ cells.
In this way happens a metabolic drainage consisting in a transportation of liquids and metabolites from tissues to skin through blood with subsequent sweating elimination caused by vasodilatation.

In aesthetics, hydro massage prevents cellulite toning up tissues and making them more elastic.
