The thermal, bicarbonate-sulphate-calcic Holy water (springing out at a temperature of 33°C) carries out its therapeutic activity by drinking it before meals in the morning, according to the modalities that have been prescribed to each single person by the thermal-bath doctor.
It stimulates the production of bile by the liver and its flowing through the biliary ducts, by producing the contraction of the cholecyst and the passage of bile into the intestine, it betters the digestive function while helping the organism to get rid of useless if not dangerous substances.
It is advised in the cure of functional hepatobiliary troubles deriving from hepatitis (viral, alcoholic, or produced by medicines) , in the case of chronic inflammations of cholecyst, of painful and/or digestive disturbs of cholecyst calculosis and of any alteration of the biliary ducts (dyskinesia) and, moreover, after surgical operations (cholecystectomy).
A course of Fucoli water is a useful booster measure in combination with the hydropic therapy that is done in the morning with the Holy Water. Fucoli water gushes out at a temperature of 16,5°C.

By applying it on the region of the liver as a large abdominal belt, Sillene mud strengthens the Holy Water choleretic effect, while producing an anti-spastic action on the biliary ducts. After one course of mud-therapy for the liver, its volume steadily decreases and the painful symptomatology that is often linked with functional and/or hepatic-biliary alterations diminishes.
