Dead Sea Resources

Climate, sunshine, water, air and mud: all are unique at the Dead Sea. No other site in the world provides such an extraordinary combination of natural elements with the capability to rehabilitate and restore physiological functions. In fact, this combination creates a Natural Health Spa, using the attenuated UV radiation, the mineral salts and the Dead Sea mud, the oxygen-rich atmosphere and the mineral sulfur springs of the region.
Unique Sun Rays: attenuation of a certain spectrum of Ultra-Violet radiation provides therapeutic properties for an impressive number of diseases.
High Salt Concentration: the Dead Sea salt concentration is ten times higher than regular Sea water, the very unusual concentration and composition of the Dead Sea water adds, by absorption through the skin, another natural healing and soothing property for a number of skin and joint diseases.
Natural Black Mud: found on the Dead Sea shores, it has thermal properties, which stimulate blood circulation and improve many types of joint diseases.
Mineral Sulfur Springs: abundant in this area, have shown well-established therapeutic value for a number of muscle and joint diseases.

Scientific studies describing the treatments at the Dead Sea and their results leave no doubt that for most conditions which respond to it, this natural treatment has the outstanding advantages of being:
  • Highly effective
  • Free of side effects during and after the treatment
  • A Very potent modality of treatment even for refractory cases
  • Suitable for children, with only very few contraindications

  • To have recurrences usually less severe
  • To allow mutual social and psychological encouragement
  • To use low doses of UV radiation and no local corticosteroids
  • To be more cost effective than other treatments

We are proud to bring here the opinion of one of the most prominent world expert in psoriasis treatment. This leaves no doubt about the capabilities of this natural treatment:

Sunlight can be a valuable treatment option for people with psoriasis. Eighty percent of the people who get regular daily doses of sunlight enjoy improvement or clearing of their psoriasis. Climatotherapy is a term used to discuss the use of sunlight and water, such as the ocean or other bodies of water, to treat psoriasis.

For climatotherapy, the best-known location is the Dead Sea in Israel, where each year thousands of people with psoriasis and other skin disease go for the extensive sun exposure and baths in the unique water. This treatment is very effective and safe in most cases, although it is an expensive option for people from the U.S. Other climatotherapy sites do exist around the world, but their facilities and reputation do not match that of the Dead Sea.

Suffering from Psoriasis: why don't you try the Dead Sea?

Psoriasis is a dermatological disease easy to diagnose. But its treatment can be sometimes difficult because of its features of chronic ailment, with a lot of variability in the severity of the lesions from one patient to another, as well as the frequency and the intensity of the "flare-up" attacks. Among the local treatments, the PUVA therapy shows good results, like the photo-climatotherapy at the Dead Sea.

The causes of Psoriasis are still unknown. This disease, characterized by red and scaly lesions, can involve a variable quantity of the body skin surface. In severe cases, PUVA therapy has be proven as a valuable therapeutic method. The principle of action is simple: the lesions are treated by light (UVA radiation) delivered in cabin, associated to a medication taken before treatment, in order to enhance the effects of the irradiation. This treatment is also possible in a "natural manner", and without the need of any additional product: the Dead Sea is a classic destination for patients suffering from Psoriasis.
