Salsobromoiodine waters

The means of application of the salsobromoiodine waters


The muds

The clay powder is poured into salsobromoiodine water. The compound thus obtained is left to mature in special basins for at least one year (element that differentiates the muds of the Baths of Porretta than the others whose period of maturity rarely exceeds six months). A mixing of the mud is provided periodically, in order to ensure oxygenation.

During this maturation period, the mixture undergoes many modifications (for example the dissolution of all the organic substances present in mud itself) to become mature mud with all its therapeutic properties.

It then heated at 70° C and applied on the patient’s body to a temperature of 49°.

The baths

The plunge into the thermal waters can be carried out in both tanks and in the pool.

The temperatures used (38°C and 35°C) make the bath particularly pleasant, in addition to enhancing the pharmacological effects of the salts present in water.

The vascular paths

The ambulatory tanks set at different temperatures, with side whirlpool jets at different pressure, and with the bottom made with river stones, are a very effective remedy, not only in diseases of the lower limbs but also against “heavy legs” that torment us after a long day at work.

Vaginal douches

Douches were once fundamental defense in treating forms of female infertility: remember how the Machiavelli in Mandrake spoke about the lady of Florence, who was unable to have children, “came to pass through the waters in Porretta” realising her dream. Today, they are used in a wide range of vaginal-uterus diseases.


It is practiced using a recent technique which, by means of a closed circuit apparatus, allows the introduction (through plastic probes) of salsobromoiodine water, which can get to clean up the fecal waste until the right part of the colon (called blind) to an established pressure and temperature by the same doctor.


It is possible to undergo aerosol with salsobromoiodine waters in some pathological conditions of the respiratory tract, where the sulphurous water is not suggested.
