Dead Sea Salt and Psoriasis
Support and advice about dead sea salt and psoriasis.
I went to the Dead Sea, Ein Bokek, Oct 17 for 2 weeks. My psoriasis cleared 95% in that time and continued to get better and better weeks after returning. I was clear for about 8/9 months keeping a good diet etc.
It’s the sunlight there that is the main key to success, not the salt water.... (I talked to lots of people from all over the world in Israel, who had been returning to the Dead Sea for years, some of which had 70%of their body covered at their worst!!!!) they swore by it.... I’d highly recommend if it’s affordable. 👍🏼
When I was 22 I heard that Haviva mud (from the dead sea) works wonders with psoriasis. What a load of nonsense. I smeared my legs full of mud and it was so nice and cool. I kept it on for an hour (as per instructions) but oh boy...Did I struggle to get it off of my legs. I used cold water to wash the mud of and it felt like I was pouring boiled water over my legs. It is 20 years later and I will never use anything from the dead sea again. I was in too much pain after the mod story. I only believe in ginger tea Linotar cream. It really works for me.
Hi Sherri, I have noticed some people here have used an antihistamine to grab hold of the itch. I have never tried it myself. A good soak with Epsom salts, dead sea salts has been quite helpful for me, followed by a good moisturizer. I make my own, or your are interested I can send you the recipe, it's quite easy and very soothing !! 😊
