Psoriasis and salty water

The benefits of psoriasis sufferers swimming in the Dead Sea are well documented. Whilst it has not always been clear what it is about the Dead Sea that is so beneficial there are hundreds if not thousands of psoriasis sufferers who will swear by its benefits.

However it is not necessary to travel so far to achieve the same results. Adding Epsom or Dead Sea salts to your bath water may help to alleviate the symptoms of psoriasis. Soaking in a bath containing these salts will help to remove the psoriasis scales so commonly associated with psoriasis.
