The healing properties of the mud have been known since ancient times. Ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Rome, Greece and India used mud to treat various types of diseases. The mud has a complex physicochemical composition. Combined with its electro-thermal properties, it has a positive effect on health.
The mud in the town of Pomorie is extracted from Lake Pomorie. It was formed after a catastrophic earthquake in 740. BC The mud in Pomorie Lake is estuarine – thick and black. It has been formed for thousands of years, with a specific chemical composition, rich in high content of sulfur and iron. Pomorie mud is unique and differs significantly from other deposits of estuarine mud in the world.
Origin of mud therapy in Pomorie
The Pomorie mud was rediscovered by Dr. Petar Stoyanov in 1905. For several years he studied its healing properties. Subsequently, a mud bath was built and the town of Pomorie was established as a national sea mud resort.
Today the treatment with Pomorie mud is practiced in two forms – mud therapy and alkali treatment. Specialized equipment and technology are required for the extraction of mud and lye. Their application also requires special devices.
- Mud therapy is applied at diseases of the musculoskeletal system – all arthritic diseases, low back pain, osteochondrosis (thorns).
- diseases of the peripheral and central nervous system – discopathy, plexitis, periarthritis.
- skin diseases – eczema, skin ulcers, scleroderma and psoriasis.
- diseases of the female and male reproductive system – gynecological diseases and infertility
- diseases of the respiratory system – bronchitis, sinusitis
Alkali treatment also treats diseases of the musculoskeletal system, upper respiratory tract, female genitals, kidneys, urinary tract and others. It has been proven that mud treatment in Pomorie increases immunity, stimulates the reproductive system and many other activities of the human body. The anti-inflammatory, vasodilating, antibiotic and muscle relaxant action of Pomorie lye has been proven.
Methods of mud therapy
Pomorie mud is applied in the form of mud applications and mud baths.
The applications are made on the whole body or partially. They are held in a special trough-shaped couch, on which there is nylon and a tarpaulin sheet. Put heated mud and the body is smeared in a layer 1-2 cm thick, then wrapped warm. After the procedure, the body is washed in the shower and do not bathe again for at least two hours.

This is a common practice. It is made in a bath with healing mud diluted with sea water. The skin absorbs more of the soluble chemicals from the dissolved mud than the method of mud applications.
