Hot hydrogen sulfide baths in the open air: Les Bains de Llo, East Pyrenees, France
The thermal springs of Llo are located in Cerdanya, in the Eastern Pyrenees (Department N66), in the picturesque French village of Llo on the edge of the gorge of Segré. They are rich in hydrogen sulfide which activates the enzymes and hormones, accelerates blood circulation, prevents blood clots in vessels and also normalizes blood sugar, activates metabolic processes, improves metabolism in the heart muscle, increases oxygen consumption by organs and tissues, improves ventilation of the lungs and normalizes blood pressure.
Before using hydrogen sulfide baths there is a long list of precautions to take into account. Be sure to take into account the concentration of hydrogen sulfide, water temperature, duration of the procedure, the possibility of combining with other types of treatment, the number of baths per course and general health, especially the activity of the pathological process which is the main indication for the purpose of treatment.
