ABSTRACT

There are many natural water springs in Tuva, that are used by native people for medicinal
purposes. They are called arjaans. To people’s opinion, the treatment at the arjaans is very
effective. It’s an old national tradition of tuvan peoples closely connected to the way of life.
Every year more than 10.000 people are treated on the arjaans without medical control. The
therapeutic methods used by the arjaans traditionally are drinking, having shower and bath.

Keywords: natural medicinal water springs, ecology, balneology, environmental and law protection
