Recreation and treatment in the Crimea have always been popular in Russia. The Crimea is a picturesque region, with unique geographical location, landscape and mild climate. A wonderful natural oasis where several important natural factors have healing effect. Fresh air of the Crimea, heated with the hot sun of plains and sated with aroma of blooming roses, is mixed with healing salt vapors of Saki Lake and smells of the Black Sea. Reduction in the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere of large cities and industrial centers leads to hypoxia, inefficiency of gas exchange in the lungs and the relative scarcity of oxygen as oxidant at tissue respiration. Underoxidized free radicals disrupt transportation of nutrients into the cell and removal of metabolites therefrom. Vivifying air of Saki resort promotes efficient respiration, circulation of oxygen, and allows storing more energy at the cellular level.
Sources of mineral water. With age, there is a decrease in people’s water consumption, which violates the delivery of nutrients to the body’s cells and contributes to the accumulation of metabolites. Hydrocarbonate Crimean mineral water restores proper fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. And due to the alkaline composition it neutralizes free radicals, possessing anti-oxidative effect.

A scientific observation of hydro regime of Saki Lake has been conducting for almost a hundred years; its organization was supported by prominent academics Fersman and Vernadsky.
Whatarepeloids?
It is a scientific name for therapeutic mud. They are natural formations which contain colloidal mineral and organic biologically active compounds. For centuries they have accumulated in the sludge and bottom sediments of salt lakes and estuaries of the Crimea. The unique combination of different set of water-soluble salts, iron sulfide, amino acids, vitamins, gases, enzymes, hormones, and living microorganisms in mud determines its effective therapeutic properties.

It was opened at the expense of the district council. Soon a branch of Simferopol Military Hospital was opened there. It was to play an important role in the treatment and rehabilitation of wounded Russian soldiers during the Crimean War of 1853-1856. The idea to use Saki muds to cure soldiers wounded in the spine and spinal cord belonged to the great Russian scientist and physician Pirogov.
