How gynecological diseases are treated in Frantiskovy Lazne
Such methods are used for treatment:
Mud therapy (mud tampons, compresses), which improves the blood supply to the female genital organs, limits the formation of post-inflammatory adhesions, prevents secondary sterility. Mud therapy helps women who have undergone in vitro fertilization. The special composition of sulfur-gland mud from peat deposits of Frantiskovy Lazne produces the production of female hormones estrogen (they stimulate the maturation of follicles). The healing mud does not contain microorganisms, therefore it is successfully used to treat fungal and bacterial diseases of the female genital organs.
Therapeutic mud does not cause an undesirable change in microflora in the female genital organs, irritation of their mucous membranes. Moreover, after vaginal mud tampons, the genital mucosa is thoroughly washed with natural mineral water.
Hydrotherapy (vaginal irrigation with mineral water) improves blood circulation of the female genital organs, and is an effective addition to mud therapy. Mineral water positively affects the microflora of the vagina - the activity of pathological bacteria is suppressed, the growth of lactobacilli is stimulated. In parallel, the release of hormones that affect the entire endocrine system of a woman.
Treatment by the natural carbon dioxide CO2 (gas seating baths), which expands capillaries, improves blood circulation, accelerates metabolic processes. In turn, increased blood circulation is an important condition for the elimination of congestion in the female genitalia, as well as inflammation. Frantiskovy Lazne is one of the few resorts in Europe where such a procedure is performed, as it has proven its effectiveness in the treatment of chronic gynaecological diseases.

Underwater massage is also considered useful, which in terms of its effectiveness is not inferior to classical massage.

Trace elements that contain therapeutic mud are actively absorbed into the pores of the skin, penetrate the bloodstream and act on bone and cartilage. in Frantiskovy Lazne, mud baths are prepared according to the technology providing the maximum therapeutic effect. Typically, in Czech resorts, 5 liters of therapeutic mud and ordinary water are added to a mud bath. In Frantiskovy Lazne, a mud bath is prepared from 85 liters of peat and exclusively mineral water (at least 120 liters) is added to it. Taking a bath with such proportions of peat and mineral water gives a unique healing effect.
Mineral water baths with mud extract are also used at the resort, because such a procedure does not exert excessive heat stress on the body. It is prescribed to patients for whom the classic peat bath is contraindicated.
