Benefits of Sulphur Hot Springs

By 22nd August 2017January 4th, 2018No Comments

Have you seen our incredible back drop here at Atmosphere Resorts? Mount Talinis is a dormant volcano and lush jungle blankets the mountain. Jungle scattered with beautiful rivers and waterfalls just waiting to be discovered. Another reason to explore the mountain is the possibility of coming across natural hot springs which are rich in minerals and heated by the volcanic geothermal activity. Some of these springs are pushed to the surface by underground pressure and therefore provide a luxurious and healing bath for passers by.

The healing powers of hot springs have been used for thousands of years especially in Europe and Japan and are used as natural treatments for various ailments.

There are many health benefits accredited to spending time soaking in Geothermic Hot Springs and some may surprise you. During a hot spring bath, the body absorbs small amounts of minerals such as carbon dioxide, sulphur, calcium, magnesium, and lithium. Sulphur is a naturally occurring mineral and is the most dominant mineral in the area. It can help provide healing effects to different organs and systems in the body, such as:

    • Reducing stress and increasing production of endorphin’s;
    • Physical and mental relaxation which helps promote sleep;
    • Stimulation of the immune system, increasing immunity;
    • Naturally relieving pain;
    • Helping to relieve skin problems such as rashes and eczema;
    • Helping and relieving digestive problems;
    • Lowering cholesterol;
    • Lowering blood pressure;
    • Helping with premenstrual issues and female reproductive disorders.

Approximately 0.25 percent of your body weight is sulphur and it’s one of the most plentiful minerals in the body. It is known as ‘nature’s beauty mineral’ because your body needs it to manufacture collagen.
