The mineralwater in Belchin Bani:

The mineral springs of Balchin Bani resort are well known in the country. The first studies date back to 1903, but the waters were piped for the first time in 1932. The beneficial effects of thermal waters and geothermal energy and their healing properties have been known for millennia. Temperature of the water at the spring is 40-45 C and it is characterized by mild and pleasant taste.

The water is:
- low level of dissolved solids (300 mg/l);
- bicarbonate-sulphate-sodium composition (HCO3-SO4-Na);
increased content of fluoride (about 5 mg/l) and silicon;
- high pH (about 9.7) and pronounced reduction properties.

Balneology studies and assessments have proven the curative and prophylactic effects of geothermal waters in motor organs diseases (of inflammatory, traumatic and neurological nature) and female genital organs and skin. It was proven that washing (irrigation) and treatment procedures may have a healing effect in inflammatory diseases and processes in the throat, mouth, nose, sinuses, ears, rectum and genital organs. Procedures and programs with doses of mineral water are recommended in diseases and discomfort in the digestive, urogenital and metabolic systems and general cleaning (sanitation) of the body. Increased fluorine content of thermal waters in Belchin can be considered in preventive programs against dental caries and osteoporosis. High alkalinity of the water in combination with peloids (mud therapeutic) substances provides opportunities for balneological treatment.
