So what does this mean to you? In simple terms dead sea salts have been effective in treating the
following conditions:

Skin Disorders
Psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, scabies and seborrhea are but a few of the unpleasant skin
disorders suffered by Americans today. Psoriasis alone is said to affect 3% of the population to some
degree. Treatment of these conditions often involves the use of creams or lotions such as steroids or coal
tar derivatives. These treatments are not always effective and can have harmful side effects, therefore they
are not ideal for long term continued usage. Research has proven that regular soaking in
dead sea salt
can provide relief from these unpleasant skin disorders without any side effects (see spa therapy
treatments). In fact,
Dead sea salt has been recommended by the international psoriasis community and
the National psoriasis foundation as an effective alternative treatment.

Rheumatological conditions
Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, bursitis etc. have all been
effectively treated with
Dead Sea salts and Dead Sea mud. Either as a bath treatment or by applying hot
mud in various ways, the Dead Sea minerals absorbed have provided effective relief from joint swelling,
soreness and stiffness. This is due to the minerals improving blood circulation necessary to reduce the
inflammatory response, together with the detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant. Also when the
mud or salt has been heated, the ability of the elements to penetrate and be absorbed into the system is
increased.

Skin Allergies
At some stage in our lives we all have suffered from rashes, sores, hives, itching, contact dermatitis or
some form of allergic reaction. The high magnesium and bromide content in
Dead Sea Salt is beneficial
as an anti allergic due to its cleansing and detoxifying of the skin.

Stress
Stress has become a symptom of modern day life. Most of us can deal with small amounts of stress
comfortably, however too much stress can affect physical & mental well-being. Symptoms can include
increased heart rate; elevated blood pressure;; tightness of the chest, neck and back muscles; headache;
sleep disturbances; fatigue; susceptibility to minor illness, irritability and depression, to name but a few.
Dead sea bath salts and mud treatments offer wonderful relief of these symptoms by increasing
circulation and detoxification by removing the by products formed during the stress cycle, thereby freeing
your cells from these toxins

Insomnia
It is estimated that 25% of Americans suffer from insomnia. Prolonged sleep disturbance can leave you
feeling tired and run down, which in turn can lead to greater vulnerability to illness and disease. To assist
with relaxing in order to fall asleep and to remove toxins, the Dead Sea bath salts and mud treatments can
be very beneficial.

Please note it is always important to consult your doctor before using ANY new treatment.
