Its fame owes to the achievements of the local specialists in the healing of diseases of the respiratory, the cardiovascular, the nervous and the digestive systems, of metabolic and different kinds of allergic conditions.

Specialists have provided the favourable influence of the rich in radon mineral waters on diseases of the cardiovascular system. What is more, some ten years ago, they developed and presently successfully apply a methodology for the treatment of pulmonary diseases and hypertonia, including a complex of taking mineral vane, inhalation and negative ionization in rooms specially equipped for that purpose. For years on end curement of post poliomyelitis conditions of children is practised here.

The treatment with rich in radon mineral waters accelerates the reporative and regenerative processes and influences the antiseptic processes and conditions of aggravation of the peripheral nervous system. The rich in radon mineral water of Momin Prohod is successfully applied for the treatment of skin diseases, light forms of diabetes, obesity and joint disturbance.
