Preparation of Mineral water from Karlovy Vary natural mineral salt

Historically, the mineral springs in Karlovy Vary, though have a common natural reservoir, but the water comes at the surface of low and medium mineralized (respectively 0.5% and 1%), as well as the different warmed. This is due, most likely, with features of geological landscape. Art of spa doctors is precisely to skillfully combine and match the water from various sources, even though the chemical composition of the water is absolutely identical. Almost all doctors recommend to use healing water directly at the source, combining it with little physical activity - a walk in the picturesque alleys and streets of the town. The fact that water is dialed into the vessel after some time it becomes tasteless and loses its medicinal properties, presumably by reacting with ambient air, and fizzles, like any mineral water. To prepare Mineral water from the salt needed pure spring or purified water, necessarily carbonated. Currently, such water is available without problems and is sold in any grocery store ("Aqua Minerale" or similar drinking sparkling water BUT NOT Mineral!). In this water required quantity of salt  is diluted: for the preparation of a 0.5% water - Dilute 5 grams of salt (1 teaspoon without top) to 1 liter of water; to prepare 1% water - 10 grams, respectively, salt (2 teaspoons) per 1 liter of water. Be careful! When diluting the salt in soda water the violent reaction occurs with the release of the gas bubbles, which contributes not only to the complete dissolution of the salt, but also uniform distribution of the composition in the amount of liquid. Then, the resulting water needs to be heated to a certain temperature, depending on the recommendations on application for various diseases. This usually 30 ° C, 45 ° C and 60 ° C. It is necessary to use water in accordance with the recommendations, which are completely different for various diseases.
