The Magic Of The Dead Sea On Psoriasis Patients
So you don’t believe in fairy tales, potions, and magical youth fountains? How about a magical sea that eases and cures psoriasis?
Patients often use the word “irritating” to describe this baffling autoimmune disease. Psoriasis sufferers develop red marks and raised plaques on their bodies as a result of the hastened process of skin development. A psoriasis patient has skin cells that multiply 10 times faster than normal. There are a few different types of psoriasis and a few different types of creams and ointments available to relieve the effects of the condition. Researchers have not yet found a cure for psoriasis.
The Dead Sea Treatment
In Eastern Israel, there lays a body of water 10 times saltier than any other sea in the world – and it happens to be a very effective treatment for psoriasis. The sea’s mineral content and increased sun exposure are what make it so great for easing psoriasis symptoms. For years, people would take a dip in the Dead Sea to cure all sorts of conditions. You can now buy salt water medical products and other useful alternatives, but they simply don’t have the same effect as making a pilgrimage to the Dead Sea.
The results vary from patient to patient. Some sufferers experience complete remission, while others feel the condition worsens on the plane ride back. Nevertheless, there are thousands who return to the Dead Sea every year to submerge themselves in its healing waters.
The Sea’s Composition
The Dead Sea has a unique mix of elements that make it such an effective psoriasis treatment. The sunlight hitting the sea is very unique, as are the minerals in the air and water. There is an abundance of magnesium, sodium, potassium, and calcium all around you – 20 more than there is in any other single location. The salt helps the plaques vanish and the light reduces the inflammation beneath them. The haze around the Dead Sea filters the Ultra Violet lights coming from the sun. And of course, while the psoriasis patient receives their healing treatment, they get to relax and enjoy one nature’s greatest wonders.
Research shows that groups of psoriasis sufferers who entered the water had better results than groups who didn’t. The miracles of the Dead Sea have been studied for decades, and each conclusion is similar to the last.
Other Locations With Mineral Rich Water
Flying to Israel usually isn’t the cheapest way to ease the symptoms of psoriasis. Fortunately, there are other mineral-rich bodies of water around the world, and some of them might be near you. If you live close to Turkey, you can always fly to Kangal for a natural treatment, or if you happen to be near Iceland, you can make a stop at the Blue Lagoon in Grindavik. The mineral water of Berkeley Springs in West Virginia is another option, along with the springs at Sarasota, Florida.
If you have psoriasis and happen to be planning your next adventure, don’t think twice – visit one of the magical places on our list. What’s the worst case scenario? You’ll have fun no matter what.
