An area huddled in picturesque and wild nature with diverse vegetation such as Oriental hornbeam, Turkey oak, manna ash, narrow-leafed ash, common oak, downy oak, European ash and many other species. This fascinating tranquillity is only disturbed by the song of wild birds, right on the shore of the Black Sea. The breath of the sea, fishing boats swinging gently on the waves, a small and cosy beach with golden sand, surrounded by typical grasses and herbs - sedge, germander, thymes, St. John's Wort, yellow yarn, cornflower.

Tuzla is a place where many people find a cure for diseases of the musculoskeletal system, the peripheral and central nervous systems and one of the paradise spots in Bulgaria, where balneological tourism, fishing and recreation may be combined.

The Balchik Tuzla is an estuary lake, formed on a landslide in which saltwater seeps. An interesting fact is that its salinity is close to the salinity of the Dead Sea, the world's saltiest water pool. The unique composition of the mud formed at the bottom has proven its healing properties for several diseases of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. It is highly mineralized with over 35g / kg - sulphides, chlorides, sulphates and magnesium. The mud is grey to grey-black, greasy, with coarse-grained particles, and the mineralization of the mud in the lake depends on the watering of the lake.

Properties of the healing mud of Tuzla

Healing mud is a gift from nature with many benefits for the body. It has a complex physicochemical composition, and because of its specific electro-thermal properties, it has a beneficial effect on health. Modern mud therapy (known also like peloid therapy) is an affordable and popular method of improving medical conditions by boosting immunity, enhancing skin and hair and favouring the response to some serious diseases.

Its popularity is growing in Renaissance Italy, France, Germany, Czech Republic and Russia. Nowadays, there are many resorts around the world that were found entirely based on the healing properties of the natural mud.

The healing properties of Tuzla’s mud were known and used since the early eighteenth century. It has very good physicochemical properties and it extracted from two estuary lakes - shallow and deep. The mud reserves in the shallow lake are approximately 26,000 tonnes. An interesting fact is that only mud from the shallow lake has proven to healing properties. It is divided into sections - male and female. On a yearly basis, the mud layer increases by about 5 - 6 mm. About 200 tons of new mud are generated each year.

The founder of mud treatment in Bulgaria is Prof. Parashkev Stoyanov. In 1905, he started the application of mud treatment at the Varna Sea Sanatorium. He explored the healing mud properties in the area of Pomorie and Tuzla.

Depending on its origin the healing mud may be few different types, the most popular ones are estuary mud, peat mud and mineral-spring mud.

Estuary mud (comes from the estuaries - the salt lakes along the coast) is thick, with black colour and smell of hydrogen sulfide. Its formation is extremely slow and has almost inorganic composition.

The peat is with the organic origin, yellowish-brown in colour and odourless, in Bulgaria, it is used in combination with mineral water for treatment.

Mineral-spring mud is formed by mineral source. It is grey, black or dark brown.

Healing mud is with a high concentration of vitamins, salts, microelements and biostimulants. They reach various organs and systems through the bloodstream and the skin. On the other hand, the mud is with low thermal conductivity and its temperature is maintained for a long time. This helps for the improvement of blood circulation and strengthens the influence of the active substances in it. Balneologists claim and prove that mud has a pain-relieving effect, it influences metabolic processes and cures a variety of diseases.
