In the United States there are over 7.5 million sufferers from Psoriasis according to the National Psoriasis Foundation, worldwide numbers as high as 125 million.My Journey to The Dead Sea Story Began in August of 2007. But, I've had Psoriasis for over 25 years with no relief in sight!
When Sean Gallagher from Ireland and Matthew Katz (co-founder of HealthRightUSA, Inc.) from U.S. landed at Tel Aviv in August 2007 on a sweltering 110 degree day they were both bound to the Lot Hotel spa/clinic on the Dead Sea. Neither knew the other or the amazing things which were about to happen in the next 18-days.
During this stay, each experienced 100% remission (VIEW MATTHEW'S VIDEO ON THE TESTIMONIAL PAGE)! Both had an extreme case of psoriasis for more than twenty years and within 18-days they were clear of lesions!
As remarkable as this may sound, it’s on the record very common at the Dead Sea clinic where Dr. Harari (middle of photo above) has been working to help heal patients for over 20 plus years. "There is strong evidence that Dead Sea Climatotherapy is very efficient for clearing many clinical forms of psoriasis."
It is a popularly accepted treatment in Israel and in some European countries where healthcare pays* for nearly 100% of this full-month stay at the hotel and spa/clinic (*unlike in the U.S. Canada and many other countries where healthcare does not reimburse for this alternative treatment).
Returning to their homelands, Mr. Katz and Mr. Gallagher have remained close friends and each are encouraging everyone they meet who have psoriasis to make the journey to the Dead Sea clinic.
What I've Learned since my trip to the Dead Sea:
In the United States alone there are over 7.5 million sufferers from Psoriasis and Psoriatic-Arthritis, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation. Experts agree that worldwide numbers soar as high as 125 million. Many are chronic with no help in sight. Dermatologists can only effectively treat minor cases with creams and expensive shots often with terrible side-effects. Those covered with more than 75% of their bodies wither and suffer their whole lives. I know...I was one of them.
After a wonderful 21-days of clearing my skin at the Dead Sea in August of 2007, I discovered that this was not a permanent cure because the redness and scales returned. Thankfully, it was not as bad as it had been before. Nonetheless, initially I became disappointed, and, in my research I discovered that 10% of the people who'd gone through this sun and sea treatment had achieved a long-term remission! I was compelled to find out what made them successful when 90% of the other patients had lesions come back? The simple conclusion I have come up with is we ARE WHAT WE EAT! Study our site and you will see how many patients are turning to both nutrition and coming to places like Israel for wellness. But realize that there is no place quite like the DEAD SEA!Matthew A.
