About the Dead Sea

 

About Dead Sea
From the beginning of time the Dead Sea, located 418 meters below sea level, has been renowned. The Dead Sea is considered the richest depository of minerals and phosphates essential to maintaining the healthy process of cell renewal and stimulating blood circulation.
 
Even in the time of the Bible the royalty the world-over were aware of the richness and essential health value of the Dead Sea minerals. King Solomon, the Queen of Sheba, Cleopatra and King Herod all bathed in the Dead Sea and enjoyed its healing properties.
 
The salinity of the water reaches a concentration of approximately 340 grams per liter- 10 times more concentrated than the Mediterranean Sea. This enables effortless floating on the water, producing a feeling of relaxation and tranquility. The air is dry, rich in oxygen and free of pollution.  The temperatures are relatively high even in the winter, and the ultraviolet rays of the sun act as a natural “filter,” enabling a pleasing tan without burning. The sun also facilitates a natural treatment of various skin diseases. Along the beachfront are several natural sources of healing waters rich in minerals such as potassium, sodium calcium, magnesium, iodine, chlorine, bitumen, and zinc. These minerals have accumulated in the Dead Sea over millions of years and have made it a rich source. Also the natural heat, together with the black mud deposits, makes the Dead Sea an ideal location for health and beauty treatments.

The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is a unique body of water, unlike any other on the face of the earth. It is the lowest and saltiest of all deep, natural bodies of water, and has a singular chemical composition. The remains of Roman spas found in the region provide evidence that the Dead Sea area has been known for its therapeutic advantages from ancient times.

After the establishment of the State of Israel, scientific articles relating to various fields of medicine began to appear showing that the Dead Sea region, and the Dead Sea itself, has a beneficial effect on skin, joint, respiratory, eye, and other disorders.

The Dead Sea region is Israel's major health resort area. The unique spectrum of therapies offered in the region include bathing in Dead Sea water and in the many thermal springs along the western bank of the Dead Sea, special mud packs unique to the region, and exposure to the sun and the region's unique ultraviolet radiation. In addition to these therapies, the unique climatic characteristics of the Dead Sea region are important, particularly the high barometric pressure, the low relative humidity, the consistently high temperatures, the paucity of rain, the absence of air pollution, and the high partial oxygen pressure.

Many hormonal and physiological changes take place while bathing in the Dead Sea or the thermal springs. The mechanisms by which a broad spectrum of diseases, and in particular autoimmune disorders, are alleviated have not been sufficiently clarified. They probably incorporate several factors, including a combination of mechanical, thermal and chemical effects.

The Dead Sea is alive
At some 430 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. At the bottom of the Dead Sea, in an area nicknamed the Dead Sea's "Bermuda Triangle", hot springs and magnetic motions have be detected. The continuous movement of the earth's layers is "stretching" the Dead Sea at the rate of one centimeter a year. Moreover, there is a greater amount of rare metals at this depth.
