NATURAL HIGHLY ALKALINE AND OLIGO-SULFIDE HYPOTHERMAL
HEALING WATER OF KULASI SPA NEAR PRNJAVOR – BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
Highly alkaline water has a very low level of mineralization and as such helps all toxics, salts and nitrogen compounds to be rapidly excreted from our organism by kidneys. Accelerated diuresis “washes out” the ureter by excreting tiny concrements, inflammatory substances and microorganisms. It also prevents the development of urate and oxalate urolithiasis and has an efficient antacid effect in hyperacidity of gastric juice, it stimulates the regenerative processes in the mucous membranes of the digestive tract, the bile ducts and liver. The high nitrite has a bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, keratolytic and desensitizing effect on certain skin diseases (psoriasis, acne, eczema, etc.) and gynecological inflammatory diseases. Hydrogen sulfide irritates skin receptors while bathing and so it causes light skin hyperaemia. Sulfide ions by transfering to blood become active pharmaceutical agens which receive high chemical activity of joining many reactions in which proteins, enzymes and hormones are built up. Hydrogen sulfide slows down many rheumatic processes by incorporating into cartilage, tendons and capsulo ligamentar structure. Beside two main therapeutic effects – nitrite and hydrogen sulfide, this water is also good instrument for achieving hydrotherapeutic effects based on hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy and all the features that a spa needs to have (including administrative and therapeutic features).
Highly alkaline olygo-mineral water of Kulasi Spa with appropriate thermal preparation for certain therapeutic procedure can be used by: bathing, swimming (kinesiotherapy), drinking, rinsing, sprinkling, inhalation and pledgets.
There is a certain rule that highly alkaline water at Kulasi Spa, just like most of the natural healing waters, should be primarily used at its spring or at the spa installations and under the control of physiatrist.

The water as an essential natural element makes two thirds of the human body. Therefore, the water is precious liquid necessary for people’s health. Is the quality of the water that the average person today consumes good enough for the human body? We will look for the answer to this question in the analysis of pH (a measure of acidity / alkalinity of an organism).
WHAT IS PH AND WHY IS IT SIGNIFICANT?
Fruits, vegetables, meat, milk, juices, living organisms and water as well have pH (the degree of acidity / alkalinity) whose value can be less than 0 or higher than 14.
Solutions with a pH less than 7 are acidic (such as organism, food, water) and solutions with a pH higher than 7 are basic (alkaline). Pure water is neutral, at pH 7, being neither an acid nor a base. Acidity / alkalinity is connected with our health and it affects the development of the diseases. Human body needs to keep the balance so the healthy organism is always mildly alkaline with the pH of 7.4. The ph of blood is always mildly alkaline as well, with the ph of 7.35.
WHAT IS AN ALKALINE/ACIDIC ENVIROMENT?
Malnutrition and inattention cause a disorder in acid-base balance in our organism. Acidic organisms are extremely convenient for the development of many diseases. According to scientists, the recommended ratio of acidic and alkaline food should be 80:20 in favour of the alkali, so the balance could be achieved.
Some of the groceries with a high level of acidity whose consumption increases the acidity of our organism and are harmful to our health are for example: sodas, sugar, various preservatives, medicine, salt, white flour, tobacco, alcohol, sweets, high-fat cheese, fried meat, etc. Fast pace of life, stress or anxiety are also some of the factors that cause a decrease of the pH in our organism. The alkaline groceries whose pH is higher than 7 are broccoli, lemon, soda, grapefruit, olives, peas, alkaline water, etc.
More and more scientists and doctors who are dealing with this issue, believe that a common cause of all diseases, including cancer, is the high level of acidity in the organism because of the enourmous amounts of acids that accumulate in our body. The pH in the blood should always be equal to 7.365 so our body can function optimally. But the food always pushes us towards the acidity. The balance between acids and bases in our body is essential for maintaining the internal harmony. At the present time, our organism can be extremely acidic because of the stress and malnutrition.
Interestingly, even if we consume the high quality food, our digestive process will always create organic waste in the form of acids which we need to remove from the body and restore alkaline balance. It is also very significant to mention that stress is one of the most important and most frequent causes which contribute to the acidity. Stress can neutralise and can even make the alkaline nutrition too acidic by just one wave of adrenaline.
Long-lasting and excessive acidity corrodes our tissues, veins and arteries like rust. It cancels all the cellular activities, for example, our heartbeat or the way we think, it affects the life itself and causes almost all of the diseases including the heart attacks, cancer, premature aging and obesity. The metabolic process in the body slows down due to the acidity and that is one of the reasons why many people have lack of energy.
Excessive acidity weakens all of our systems and forces our body to take minerals from the vital organs and bones to neutralize and safely remove acid from our body. Our body produces cholesterol so it can safely store deadly waste products away from the liver, heart and kidneys. “Obesity is the problem of acidity, while fats are saving our lives” explains dr Robert Young. There will be more information about obesity, which is represented as the consequence of the high level of acidity, in the further text.
ALKALINE WATER RESTORES THE PH BALANCE IN THE HUMAN BODY
Natural water is slightly alkaline, full of oxygen and other various minerals and has a pH over 7. However, due to the processing and bottling it loses its value and the consumers buy it even in the form of mineral water. The pH of drinking water is from 6.5 to 7. Alkaline water is much easier to adapt to your nutrition plan. It helps in regulating the balance between alkaline and acidic organism to the ratio of 80:20 and so it neutralizes the impact of the accumulation of acidity in the body, which is the main cause of degenerative diseases and aging.
The water of Kulasi Spa has a pH of 11.75 and is highly alkaline natural water which increases the pH of the body and has a positive effect on all cells. The advantage of natural alkaline water is the fact that it can reach every cell of the organism.
Namely, when drinking water enters our organism it moves through in groups of molecules. Each group contains from 8 to 12 molecules of water which is the reason why it cannot reach each cell of the organism. While natural alkaline water consists of groups which contain from 4 to 8 molecules of water which can reach each cell of the organism and hydratize it. Alkaline water is mostly used in Asia for the development of people’s health. Natural springs of this precious liquid, which can be rightly called the elixir of life, are very rare in the world. There are only two springs of this kind in Europe (except Kulasi Spa), and only several more in the rest of the world. The Hunzakuts or Hunza people, are an ethnically Burusho people indigenous to the Hunza Valley, in the Karakorum Mountains of northern Pakistan. This tribe is considered as the tribe that lives the longest life. The scientists that had made the research about this tribe, concluded that the reason of their longevity is their nutrition. Namely, there are natural springs of alkaline water in the Himalayas which are used by this tribe in their everyday life. Unlike alkaline water whose usage has a positive effect in our organism, mineral water (water with low pH value) is suitable for local usage. Mineral water is used for skin care, hair care, wound healing, acne, to eliminate bacterial and fungal infections and it is also used as an effective disinfectant. Highly alkaline water also moisturises your body up to six times better than ordinary water, it is a strong antioxidant and has a powerful detoxifying effect. Consumption of the right kind of water is very important for the detoxification of our body and is also one of the most effective medical treatments that we can choose. Alkaline water is the fastest and the best way of alkalizing our body.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR ORGANISM IS IN THE STATE OF INCREASED ACIDITY?
All those things such as the fast pace of life, malnutrition, worries, problems, cigarettes, polluted enviroment have negative effect on a human body and decrease its immunity. A weak organism is an organism with a high level of acidity. Food in our body connects with oxygen and produces energy which helps each cell and each organ to function normally. But not all food produce energy. A large amount of food remains in our organism as a “waste” which cannot be used. And then in order to cope with the waste products, our body will extract from our bones, organs and blood, all those substances which can neutralize and cast waste materials.
That “waste” increases the level of acidity in the organism and lowers the pH. The acidic waste partially transforms into solid waste and can easily be excreted by breathing, sweating and urinating without negative effects on the pH. The second part of the waste is stored in the organism and can contribute to many problems.
Acidic waste contained in the body can be placed on different locations including body fat as well. The result of increased necessity for acidic waste storage may be the result of increased fat production because the waste “seeks for the shelter” in the fat tissue. The best solution in this situation is to consume alkaline water.
The less acidic waste means the lower percentage of body fat in the organism! Now you understand that the main cause of the people’s obesity are not fats but acids.
The pH of the blood should always be slightly alkaline and that’s the reason why nutricionists recommend the consumption of fruits and vegetables daily. Fruits and vegetables are alkaline food which improves the alkalinity in our organism.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF THE USE OF NATURAL ALKALINE WATER?
Natural water with such a high pH (11.85), as in Kulasi Spa has the following effects on health:
– It alkalizes the organism in a short period of time
– improves concentration
– reduces stress
– burns fat
– moisturizes skin
– an anti-aging effect
– speeds up the toxins exrection from the body
– reduces blood cholesterol
– helps the body to achieve ideal weight
– improves the apsortion of oxygen in blood
– accelerates and shortens the recovery time after workout
– helps body to regulate blood sugar level
– regulates blood presure and brings it back to normal
– eliminates the feeling of fatigue, over-voltage, headache and somnolence;
– stops the progression of the disease
– slows down the aging process
Because alkaline water has strong potential to reduce oxidation, to slow or stop the destructive processes in the body (aging, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, dermatitis, etc.). Alkaline water is the natural antioxidant (because of the high pH level) which removes free radicals from the body.
The research of a Nobelist confirmed the fact that oxygen is very important for our health. Dr Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize 1931) proved in his work that the actual cause of cancer is a lack of oxygen and showed that the cancer cells are anaerobic (do not need oxygen to survive) and they disappear when they get in contact with oxygen. This vicious disease (in the organism or on the organs) occurs when cells do not get enough oxygen which gives the opportunity to cancer cell to form themselves. The structure of alkaline water contains molecules of water which can easily enter the organism and reach any cell and thus provide sufficient oxygen which hydrates the cells, skin and body more effectively than ordinary natural water.
The things such as fatigue, weakness, stress, deconcentration, somnolence, lack of energy, poor memory, dizziness, depression are manifestations of a lack of oxygen and an acidic body.
The cells of the human body live as long as they are provided with oxygen. When there is no sufficient oxygen they disappear, die or transform to acidic waste. One of the first visible signs of aging is wrinkling. Wrinkles arise particularly because the skin cells lose their moisture and elasticity due to lack of oxygen. By consumption of natural water the cells are constantly enriched with oxygen, they remove free radicals, slow down the aging process, maintain the vitality, freshness and elasticity not just of the cells but of the whole human body as well.
An alkaline organism has less acidic waste substances and thus lower percentage of body fat. Therefore, consumption of natural alkaline water, in addition to all the benefits mentioned so far, also helps in reducing body weight. An alkaline body is healthy and vital body!
RECOMMENDATIONS OF EXPERTS
Alkaline water is definitely the elixir of life, and its regular use improves not only health, but life itself, making it more beautiful and simple.
Today, alkaline water as a medical treatment method is most widely used in Japan. Springs of natural highly alkaline water are very rare but a lot of scientists are engaged in examining alkaline water and alkaline organisms. Some of the researches have already been mentioned in the previous text but there are some significant statements and assertions of famous researchers and scientists from renowned Universitites and Institutes.
“Health, as well as disease of the human body, depends on the biological, physiological and chemical balance, which plays the role of an important regulatory mechanism in all body functions. When these functions are disrupted, our body sends us a signal that we have entered into the state of illness which can be noticed by the increase of the level of acidity in our organism. The success of any treatment is much higher if the body is able to help itself a little and to get rid of acidity. The only way to reduce the level of acidity in the organism is to change our life habits and to consume the groceries which can regulate the alkalinity in our organism.” – dr Leonard Coldwell.
“I recommend everyone to drink 8 to 10 glasses of alkaline water daily. It is one of the simplest and most powerful things that you can do to protect your organism from diseases. It should be mentioned that professional athletes in Japan consume alkaline water to improve their skills.” – Tery Grossman – the founder and director of Frontier Medical Institute in Denver, Colorado.
