Dead Sea Salt and Psoriasis
Support and advice about dead sea salt and psoriasis.
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 !! 😊
So sorry to hear that! Have you ever used Minera Dead Sea Salt for relief? Minera Dead Sea Salts are a safe, natural alternative to treating skin conditions such as psoriasis. It's harvested from the Dead Sea in Israel and contains the unique composition of minerals which help with the relief! According to research, about 80%-90% of psoriasis patients visiting the Dead Sea for treatment, experience significant improvement of their skin. You can dissolve approximately 2lbs of the Minera Dead Sea Salt into a warm bath and bathe for 20 minutes. Use 3-4 times a week for a period of 4 weeks for best results. The general idea is to re-create the waters of the Dead Sea in your own bath tub. You can also massage for extra relief. You just have to rinse with fresh water after each Dead Sea salt bath.
