The main curative factor of the sanatorium “Podolia” is Radon, in particular the adoption of radon baths. Their beneficial effect has been known since time immemorial, but scientific study began only in the XIX century. At the end of this century have been discovered X-rays and, later, radiation, and in fact, the 86th element of the periodic table – radon. This is – the short-lived inert gas, which emits in the process of life a weak radioactive radiation. That it has beneficial effects on many human systems, toning and stimulating work of the bodies immune system. At the same therapeutic effect on the body have relatively mild alpha particles that do not have great penetrating power
How do radon baths
Located in the bath the patient receives a small dose of alpha particles, which penetrate into the bloodstream through the skin and lungs. Under their influence the ionization of the molecules that make up the organs and tissues, especially water. The initial ionization of interstitial fluid generates a series of biochemical processes. Participate in these vital biopolymer molecules, including biologically active substances, particularly enzymes. It is noteworthy that the activation of vital energy body requires very low doses of radiation. For example, the radiation dose received during the course of 15 baths at the sanatorium “Podolia” (with a concentration of radon per liter nanokyuri 12-15) is comparable to the monthly natural background.
Effects of radon on the cellular level
The adoption of radon baths activates antioxidant mechanism biodefense human body. It consists in the normalization of the redox reactions at the cellular level. This leads to analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on virtually all body systems. In addition, radon baths stimulate the production of adrenal glucocorticoid hormones, which makes them particularly useful in the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. They also normalize metabolism and are extremely useful for people suffering from illnesses of the endocrine system.
For which diseases are appointed radon baths
Radonolechenie an excellent reputation in the treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular system, in particular, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and violations of the capillary circulation. Radon belongs to a prominent place among the means of prevention, opposing the premature aging of the organism.
As an aid, it is used for the treatment of diseases of the central nervous system. Under the influence of radon baths increases the permeability of the blood-brain barrier, thus enhancing effects of drugs on the spinal cord and brain. In addition, patients experience improvement in mood, increased muscle tone, reduced or disappear entirely pain, often wore a chronic character.
Radon baths are well treated with cardio-vascular insufficiency stage I-II, ischemia, atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis miokardichesky. They are appointed for therapy and prevention of endocrine, gynecological diseases, and diseases of bronchopulmonary and musculoskeletal system.
