Dead Sea Basics
The Dead Sea area, famous for its health
promoting environment for thousands of years, contains an unique solar irradiation,
an increased oxygen density, a high density salty sea with an unusual salt composition,
thermo-mineral springs and a special natural mud. The effects of these unique
properties are presently being critically evaluated in terms of types of diseases
treated, modes of therapy, and mechanism of healing.
Rich in life-enhancing minerals, the Dead Sea waters and mud have been acclaimed
throughout the ages. This unique body of water is situated on the Syrian-African
fault, a geological phenomenon that came into being some three million years
ago during a great natural upheaval. Many ancient layers of mineral-rich earth
were exposed. Salt water springs erupted, forming a valley and a lake 1300 feet
below sea level, making it the lowest place on earth.
An evaporation process continuing for thousands of years resulted in increased
levels of minerals and salt in the lake, which is known as the Dead Sea.
The composition of the Dead Sea is considered unique, containing the highest
levels of magnesium, calcium, silica, sodium, and potassium in comparison to
any other body of salt water in the world, including the oceans. Since ancient
times, millions of people have come to the region to relax, to enjoy its beauty
and to experience the healing, beautifying, and rejuvenating powers of the Dead
These visitors soak in the famous waters and coat themselves in the celebrated
revitalizing black mud. Medical research and multiple studies have proved beyond
all doubt the efficacy of these minerals in treating and preventing various
diseases such as psoriasis, acne, and rheumatism. As in the past, the Dead Sea
continues to attract tens of thousands of visitors annually to its many resorts
and treatment spas.
