In 20 kilometers from a region center of Shabran, higher from Galaalti village in one of picturesque edges in the foothill woods in 1969 was found new source of mineral water. 7 sources in the wood were defined. The resort of “Galaalta” located at the level of 1000 meters above sea level in the foothills of Greater Caucasus carries out the activity since 1976. Local settlers call this water as “Naftsu” what in translation means Oil-containing Water. “Naftsu” differs with strong smell and taste. It should be noted that in the late eighties – in the early nineties of last century the processes happening in political, economic and social life of Azerbaijan didn’t pass without trace in processes of the organization, management, financing in the field of resort complexes, and also in the organization of rest, treatment and recovery of people, in application of resort technologies and in the field of staffing. As a result harmonious functioning of the central resort complex and nation-wide system of sanatorium services were broken. The big loss to this complex was caused as a result of the Armenian aggression against the Azerbaijan Republic.
That led to occupation of 20% of the territory of Azerbaijan. Regions with unique resort features were destroyed; refugees from occupied territories were settled in the sanatoria constructed since the Soviet Union what brought more than 50% of the general number fund of resorts of the Republic into a nonfunctional state. The state program dated on February 6, 2009 “About development of resorts of the Azerbaijan Republic in the 2009-2018th years”, signed by the president Ilham Aliyev opens wide prospects in all-round development of this sector. Within this program in 2014 it was put in operation sanatorium of “Galaalti”.

It was known of unique medicinal properties of mineral water of Naftusya long ago – the first mentions in literature on its curative effect belong to 1578. The only name of it speaks much – it is the only medicinal water in the world with the raised content of organic substances of an oil origin. Many people the name of Naftusya associate with the resort of Truskavets. However for many years operation stocks and the maintenance of organic chemistry in the sources of Truskavets were exhausted. Not all know that along with Truskavets there are also other fields of medicinal mineral water, for example the resort of Galaalti in Azerbaijan. So, in 20 kilometers from the Devechi region (nowadays Shabran) over the village of Galaalti in the woods over mountain in the 1969th year the new source of healing water was found. In the wood were defined 7 sources of that water which possess a large supply. The output of water makes more than 10000 liters a minute. Naftusya is much richer than this field with organic substances that is the defining indicator of medicinal properties of water of this region. Galaalti’s water can be drunk only directly on a source as water isn’t subject to storage and transportation (because of existence of flying organic substances). The low-mineralized Galaalti’s waters contain organic substances from 15 to 25 mg/l. Here the ether-soluble organic compounds like phenols containing hydrocarbons, flying organic acids, humus substances, etc. enter. At small amounts in water there are carbonic acids, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, sodium, potassium, iron, copper. For Galaalti’s waters the most specific are the hydrocarbon oxidizing, desulphurization and thionic microorganisms (about 400 strains) which have impact on qualitative and quantitative structure of organic substances.
Galaalti’s water is used at treatment of a urolithic illness in various forms. It is original both on structure, and on the physiological impact on a human body.
Thanks to a low mineralization (to 0,78 g/l) and to the rich content of organic substances (8,35-23,8 mg/l), stimulates an expectoration of small stones and sand from kidneys, a gall bladder, to urinary and biliary tract, reduces a lithogenicity (tendency to formation of stones) of urine and bile, that is eliminates danger of a stone formation. It normalizes a metabolism in an organism, and also has alkalizing effect on blood and urine, reduces formation of uric acid and promotes its removal from an organism, reduces acidity of gastric juice, lowers permeability of cellular membranes, reduces bleeding, has anti-inflammatory effect, increases dieresis, deletes surplus of liquid from an organism. Thanks to immunological action resumes protective forces of an organism, promotes elimination of inflammatory processes in bodies and fabrics, to removal of products of an exchange and toxic substances, thereby prevents early aging of an organism. It has a unique natural complex of organic substances that does it by the only medicinal mineral water in the world which gained recognition of doctors-urologists of a set of the countries.
