The mud is composed of a mixture of an essentially inorganic solid component (clay) and a liquid component (thermal water). The PH is alkaline and it has an extremely low cooling index (only after an hour of exposure to room temperature it loses 10% of the initial temperature).
The mud is kept in maceration in appropriate muddy areas for about a year before being used. In these locations the adduction of saline-sulphate-alkaline water with a high concentration of salt, rich in hydrogen sulphide and with an average temperature of 34 degrees, continuously replenishes the mud deposited, thus impregnating it with salt components which are typical of the Leopoldina source.
Indications: arthrosis and extra-articular rheumatism in the chronic phase (tendinitis, fibrosites), gastro-enteric and biliary dyspepsia. The applied temperature of the mud is 47 degrees.
After the mud, a bath in a Roman pool with Leopoldina water at 38 ° is performed.
It is possible to perform mud therapy of the hepatic district to positively aﬀect hepato-biliary functional problems.
