Healing Minerals in the Pagosa Hot Springs

Hot Springs rich in Sulfur and Sulfates are used to address a wide variety of conditions, including skin infections, respiratory problems, and skin inflammations.

Mineral springs naturally rich in chlorides are considered by some researchers to be beneficial for rheumatic conditions, arthritis, central nervous system conditions, posttraumatic and postoperative disorders, as well as orthopedic and gynecological disease.

Magnesium (Magnesia) converts blood sugar to energy and promotes healthy skin.

Sodium and natural salts
assist with the alleviation of arthritic symptoms, and may stimulate the body's lymphatic system when used in baths.
