The old age can be defined as drying of an organism because of gradual closing of capillaries, occurrences of the dried up cellular islets and delay of vital processes.
From 40-45 years of age, a marked reduction of quantity of open capillaries begins and progresses with time. This is the time for the probability of diseases such as hypertension, rheumatic illnesses, neuritis, stenocardia, arteriosclerosis, and others, to rise.
Huge advantage of Zalmanov’s baths consists in their influence on a capillary network as a whole: in strengthening of its activity and, hence, in increase in vital potential of each cell. Also it is reached by physiological treatment, instead of medication.
These is enough for understanding of the second field of influence of these baths, namely influence on the basic function of tissues. It is especially important to notice, that baths yield good results at treatment of those deceases what can not be cured with modern medications, which usually achieve temporary or deceptive effect.
Zalmanov’s baths which we apply, step by step opening the closed capillaries, restore supply by blood of the dried up islets in tissues, provide inflow of oxygen and a drainage for removal metabolites - and the life of tissues and cells is restored. Any chronic illness is a premature aging.
With older people infectious diseases often become fatal as they develop imperceptibly in the worn body; cellular and humoral activity which could overcome microbial invasion is weak. When speaking about arteriosclerosis, the role of capillaries in feeding of artery walls and arterioles is often forgotten.
Talking about old age as on illness, doctors first of all think about arteriosclerosis, about damage of coronary arteries, damage of heart valves, reduction of elasticity in arteries and relative atrophy of their muscular layers, forgetting about the role of the capillaries.
Also they do not take into consideration the fact, that human organs and the big vessels contain only 20 % of the circulating blood.
From the point of view of haemodynamics the change of circulation in capillaries must be considered as a major factor of senile infringements in blood circulation, all other factors - are minor.
