Climatotherapy by definition is ‘treatment of disease by means of residence in a suitable climate’. Numerous studies have demonstrated the success of this method. As for the unpleasant condition of psoriasis, there are several sites around the word said to be beneficial.

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated skin disease that causes itchy lesions on the skin, and can be recurrent and chronic. Around 125 million people suffer from the disease to some level and it is the most common of the autoimmune related diseases. There is no known cure for psoriasis, but a variety of treatments can help alleviate its symptoms. In this article, we will be discussing the relative merits of two sites said to help those suffering with psoriasis: the Dead Sea, and Safaga- Egypt.

The Dead Sea has long been viewed as an excellent spot for psoriasis sufferers. This is thought to be down to the high salt content of the Dead Sea (33pc as opposed to 4pc in the Mediterranean), the ultraviolet rays in the sunshine, the mineral rich content of the water and the relaxing effect of floating around in the sun. The Dead Sea is 394m below sea level - the lowest point on Earth. There are a number of spa resorts along the side of the Dead Sea, any of which you can stay at to have a relaxing and beneficial stay.

From the Dead Sea to the Red Sea. Safaga, on Egypt's Red Sea coast, is another site claimed to be beneficial to psoriasis sufferers. A Climatotherapy Fact Sheet indicates that mineral springs, sunshine, black sands, high water salinity and a relaxing atmosphere all contribute to easing many people's skin conditions and other conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. The levels of ultraviolets here, at this sea-level resort, are said to be particularly beneficial, and the clean air and water cleansed by coral reefs mean that no pollutants will irritate the skin. The mountain range keeps down winds and so the air has fewer particulates, and the warm, sunny weather prevails year round.

A system of sea bathing, taking in the rays, and application of moisturisers, as well as a few weeks of complete rest and relaxation has been shown to help the vast majority of psoriasis sufferers. There is likely a psychological component to this cure, which is why it is important to travel to these beautiful and relaxing locations in order to undertake this simple yet very beneficial therapy.

To get to the Dead Sea you can fly to Amman in Jordan from a number of international locations. Likewise, flights to Hurghada, Egypt, near Safaga, are easy to find from a number of airports worldwide. You may even find some last minute deals including flights and accommodation to help you jet off to one of these idyllic and peaceful locations.
