However, as it was already told above, only the zhivichny version of substance will be suitable for a medical bath.
Technique of carrying out skipidarny baths in house conditions. A bath fill with warm water (37°С) to a half. It is necessary to use the water thermometer during all procedure and carefully to supervise water temperature. In the enameled capacity pour the necessary quantity of a skipidarny mix (it can be got in drugstores and specialized shops) then dilute with hot water from under the crane and well stir. The received mix from capacity pour in a bath and evenly distribute on perimeter. Remember: if insufficiently carefully to stir an emulsion in a bath, there can be burns of the most sensitive sites of skin. That it to avoid, before a bathroom it is possible to grease such sites with vaseline. Also it is necessary to avoid solution hit in eyes and on mucous membranes. The mix was dissolved? Everything is ready – now it is possible to plunge! In 3 minutes start to add boiled water. Here also it is necessary to supervise speed of temperature increase of water. At reception of a white skipidarny bath the solution temperature usually is possible to 38-39°C. At reception of a yellow skipidarny bath (hot) temperature of solution rises to 40-42°C. On termination of procedure (borrowing from 5 to 20 minutes) carefully we rise and we leave a bath (it is not necessary to be washed). Be attentive, skipidarny baths oil therefore walls and a bottom of a bath become slippery. Having appeared «out of danger», put on a terry dressing gown a wet body or turn back to a prostynye: now it is necessary to spend 1-2 hours to beds. Baths accept Skipidarnye every other day, a course at 16-20 procedures. Quantity of an emulsion (solution) for the first bath – 10-20 ml, for everyone the subsequent increase it by 3-5 ml. also lead up to 60-70 ml. on a bath. At hypersensibility of skin to turpentine, its contents it is necessary to limit 40-50 ml.
Procedure seemed to the too difficult? It doesn’t matter! Now skipidarny baths are used in medical institutions, sanatoria, in resorts in Russia, in Ukraine and in other countries, mainly where the Soviet medical school remained. Therefore, there is a chance to use services of professionals.
What treat skipidarny baths? Baths are positioned by Skipidarnye as a universal remedy of treatment. In width of the therapeutic range they cover very big circle of sharp and chronic diseases. The most popular directions of treatment mention:
