One of the legends of these places tells about a unique case when a hunter from the Soyot tribe, chasing a deer wounded by him for several days, finally overtakes him in a narrow mountain valley. And what does he see – not the body of an animal exhausted from wounds and continuous persecution, but a deer, full of strength and power, rising from the mud.

How to properly treat with Shumak mineral waters
General recommendations for the intake of mineral water, existing, for example, at the resorts of Arshan and Nilova Pustyn ', should be followed. The action of mineral water begins even before it enters the stomach through a direct effect on the receptors and vessels of the oral mucosa. After taking mineral water, gastric juice becomes neutral or close to neutral, while the removal of food from the stomach is accelerated. Directly after the intake of mineral water, the biliary tract begins to shrink. The secretion of the pancreas is activated. When stomach receptors are irritated, changes in the functional state of the liver are observed. Also, an increase in the release of cholesterol and the volume of bile with the normalization of cholesterol metabolism and a decrease in its level in the blood has been proven.

Most often, mineral water is drunk before meals. In some cases, mineral water is prescribed after meals. For example, in case of peptic ulcer disease and gastritis with increased secretory function, especially in cases where the disease is accompanied by a delay in evacuation and excruciating heartburn, water should be drunk in small portions 1 hour after a meal.
Usually they drink water three times a day ( in the morning on an empty stomach, before lunch and before dinner). In diseases of the urinary tract, the number of water intake is increased to 6-8 times. The temperature and amount of mineral water taken inside depends on the nature of the disease, the leading symptoms, the state of gastric secretion, the presence of concomitant diseases.

Optional Excursions

We invite you to temporarily disconnect from workdays and be alone with nature!

Go to the waterfalls on the Mramornaya River, look at the valley through the Arch at the top of Mount Bezymyannaya, visit the Valley of the Ancestors, spend half a day in search of the Golden and Emerald Lakes, pay tribute to the spirits and make a wish next to the sacred pillars of Huuhein Hada! < / p>

In between excursions, go for a relaxing massage, steam in a sauna with a pool filled with ice-cold mineral water.

In the morning and in the evening, attend yoga and meditation classes, as well as individual Slavic gymnastics, energy healing sessions, master classes on mandala drawing, making a protective doll, etc. Don't forget about the gym, board games and campfire gatherings with the cool company of your housemates!

And most importantly – drink mineral water three times a day, take a radon bath and go to the mud lake! It won't be boring!
