Fish — It’s True!
Ed: Just looked through you
site today and saw the letter about Psoriasis-eating fish. I have seen the
story twice now. I have found a couple of web sites you may want to look
you for your site. -Jesse C.
a quickie — saw an email on your site about this and that you hadn't
seen any info — I remember hearing about this myself and did a search on
Google — here are two links:
time on your site — re-discovered it and will gather up the
courage to put in my 2 cents worth sometime ... and will definitely
bookmark it so I can keep coming back.
going through a major flare up right now and just want it over.
Sigh … sigh.
for the humor :) -Dee S.
Response: Thanks Jesse and
Dee. All these sites were
some lines from tuvpo.com:
are several photographs on these sites including close-ups of the little
fish (there’s really two varieties, a “striker” and a “licker”)
and people in the water experiencing this benign consumption (they’re
all smiling — a good sign).
of the sites promotes a spa that caters to people suffering from
neurological and rheumatic diseases as well as psoriasis.
Its name is Kangal Balikli Thermal.
of the maps of Turkey I could find (on or off the web) showed Kangal,
which is not surprising as these websites say it is a small place. One site positions the Dr. Fish 103 km from Sivas and 450 km
from Ankara, both of which are shown on most maps of Turkey.
Those of us with a fair map of Turkey, a compass (the pointy-pencil
kind) and some recollection of junior high school geometry will be able to
narrow down the search area for Kangal in a jiffy.
