Hormone Balancing and Infertility
A study of 28 patients diagnosed with immature follicle sterility, were divided into three groups. One group of 16 were chosen specifically for impregnation. The other two groups were evaluated for hormonal parameters, in consideration primarily prolactin, FHS, LH, DEAS-S and estradiol.
All patients received three peat baths per week, up to 12 treatments, and were evaluated on the ninth day of the cycle before treatment, and on the 9th day of the cycle 1.8 to 2.4 months following therapy.
Results: FHS was lowered from 8.0 mE/ml to 4.0 mE/ml; LH lowered from 10.o pg/ml to 6.0 mE/ml; and estradiol elevated from 5.5 pg/ml to 10.o pg/ml. Also, normalization of progesterone-biosynthesis was noted.
In the group of 16 patients, 11 became pregnant, with one miscarriage. This demonstrates a 68.8% treatment success modality.

Effect of mud application on hormonal function of normal and insufficient corpus luteum in women
In a group of 41 studied women with insufficient corpus luteum, in 21 hyper and in 20 isothermic mud was used. In all the women prior to the procedure, 2 and 5 hours after the procedure, the accomplished radioimmunological determinations involved concentration of FSH, LH, progesterone and estradiol in blood serum. Moreover, the level of adrenaline and noradrenaline in urine was established by fluorimetric method, calculated for gram of creatinine .
In 10 of them concentration of FSH and LH was being determined every 15 minutes for the first 2 hours following the procedure. The employed procedure with hyper or isothermic mud in a similar manner led to transient increase in the concentration of progesterone and estradiol in blood serum of women with normal and insufficient hormonal function of corpus luteum.
