A proof of the saying that forces of nature are the best healers is thermo-mineral water and peloid found in Banja Koviljaca. Thermo-mineral water which is used in therapeutic procedures at the Specialized Rehabilitation Hospital Banja Koviljaca, based on the terrain examination and complete physical and chemical analysis, belongs to the group of Sodium-Calcium-Hydro Carbonated Sulphide-rich hypotherms. Thermo-mineral water is applied in the form of baths (partial or general) and spraying.
Peloid found in Banja Koviljaca is of mineral origin and it is classified as a low-alkaline and reductive peloid. The origin of Banja Koviljaca peloid (mud used therapeutically) is mineral and is classified among the low alkaline and reductive peloids. It is prepared in special partitioned outdoor mud pools, which are filled with clay taken from the surrounding area. The clay is ground and mixed with sulphuric thermo-mineral water. Ripening of the mud is done in anaerobic conditions which are maintained by a constant flow of sulphuric water over the clay. It takes 3 years and occasional mixing for the peloid ripening process to complete. During that period, the optimal concentration of the dissolvable substances is achieved. In Specialized Rehabilitation Hospital Banja Koviljaca, peloid is used for therapeutic purposes in the form of mud wraps.
The quality of the thermo-mineral water and peloid has been confirmed by Prof.Dr Zeki Karagulle, President of the International Society of Medical Hydrology and Climatology (ISMH) himself.
