Just stumbled on to your website and had a bit of a browse around
checking out the info there. I'm
living in New Zealand and for the past 12 years have been doing some form
or other of drug therapy as I have severe P.
In April 2000 I
decided to pack my backpack and head out to the Dead Sea in Israel.
I've been back every year in April and this year I returned in
October, as well, because of an acute flare up.
I was searching your website for other alternative stories, in
particular from Israel.
For those with
the money and a positive response of some sort to UV treatment, it is
brilliant. The Danish
government sends their flakers out there as part of their national health
programme (ie: fully funded) and I have heard of other German tours
(unsure whether they have any form of funding or insurance coverage).
Response: Thanks, Ricky.
Searching on “Dead Sea” here at FlakeHQ will bring up over
thirty correspondence exchanges. It’s
a popular natural therapy for P
for, as you said, people with money and/or aid. And
it’s not just getting there that costs a bundle, once there a 4-6 week
regimen is recommended for best results.
For readers wanting more information, Ben Freeman’s web site, Dead Sea Psoriasis & Arthritis Treatment Foundation of America, is a good place to start. -Ed
