The healing power of mud

Many people believe that the salted mud from the Kuyalnik Estuary, some kilometers outside Odessa, has healing powers.

As a result, dozens of people spent Friday afternoon rubbing their body with the healing dirt. In fact, the mud is also being collected in plastic bottles and brought home as a souvenir or, perhaps as a medicine.

With the old boat on the pictures dirt is being dredged and transported to the local sanatorium “sanatorium Kuyalnik”. On this site the sanatorium claims to have treatments for a wide range of diseases.

The sanatorium was founded in 1834 and is one of the oldest mud sanatoriums of Ukraine according to Wikipedia.
