Radon baths and water in the sanatorium "Birch grove"
What is radon: a brief overview
Medical ignorance and curiosity, not supported by knowledge, often as a result have a negative impact on human health. For example, many people have heard about radon and its benefits on a human body, but few people can say what radon is, for what exactly it is used and whom it is contraindicated. Before we talk about healing procedures in the sanatorium "Birch Guy", let's find out what radon is and what its effect on the human body is.
Radon is a member of the group of inert (or noble) gases, has no odor and color. Unlike most of such gases, radon is chemically active, but breaks down rapidly, which complicates the study of its chemical properties. Its main feature is radioactivity which in uninformed circles puts upon it unfair "poisonous stigma."
Radon is formed deep in the earth, in the deposits of radium, a radioactive chemical element, and radon is the product of radium's decay. Radon is heavy gas, but it successfully rises to the top, clinging to lighter gases of air or rises above the surface of the ground, dissolving in water. Because of this, natural or created artificially radon baths and caves are formed.
Impact of radon to a person
The most widespread use of radon is found in medicine, despite the apparent paradoxicalness: a radioactive element guards human health. However, it is true. The resort, built on the water containing radon, successfully has been working since the end of the 19th century.
The main factor of radon is alpha radiation, i.e. impact of positively charged particles. The uniqueness of radon is that the minimum amount of this gas in mineral water, penetrating into the body, beneficially effects on the whole one, from the nervous system to the blood.
How is it irradiated with radon? During adoption of radon baths agent first penetrates into the skin and lungs, and then into the blood stream. Ionizing radiation of alpha particles triggers regenerative processes of the whole organism.
