Dead Sea


Containing over 30% minerals and salts that are beneficial to the skin, the Dead Sea is unique. Other seas and oceans generally have a concentration of less than 4%.

It is the natural elements of the brines which give the water its curative powers, although, as its name suggests, the extreme high content of salt and minerals means the Dead Sea is unable to sustain marine life.  The area's low humidity and reduced harmful UVB rays (Sunlight has a profound effect on the skin causing premature skin aging, skin cancer, and a host of skin changes. Exposure to ultraviolet light, UVA or UVB from sunlight accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging). The sun's harmful ultra violet rays are filtered through multiple atmospheric layers allowing for longer periods in the sun with reduced risks to the skin. This unique phenomenon can only be experienced on the shores of the Dead Sea and nowhere else in the world.  It is this unique blend of elements of nature and life that give the Dead Sea an unmatched harmonious balance.

Skin Clinic

The skin therapy centre uses Climatotherapy at the Dead Sea as an effective therapy for patients with skin conditions, such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Vitiligo and Acne who benefit from sunbathing for long periods in the area due to its position below sea level and subsequent result that many of the sun's harmful UV rays are reduced

 Medicated Dead Sea Mud Therapy is also used to treat chronic skin conditions, which is completely tailored to your skin’s individual needs. The warm mud is applied to the body and left on for a period of time, before being washed off in a hot shower. After completely drying off, a period of rest in a warm bed stimulates circulation and intensifies the detoxifying action.  This aids the recovery and healing of many skin conditions. It works in two ways; acting as an anti-inflammatory on the skin and increasing resistance to disease-causing bacteria, fungi or virus to prevent reoccurrence.

Ozone Therapy and Colon-Hydro Therapy are also used to help skin conditions

Ozone Therapy


What is Ozone?

It is a special variation of the element oxygen consisting of three atoms molecules, it has

a very high oxidation effect, therefore it is also known as active oxygen. It is a natural

component of our atmosphere.

How Do We Produce Ozone?

Pure oxygen (med. oxygen) and an extremely high electric discharge energy make

ozone..1857 Werner V. Siemens used this technique for the production of oxygen. In

principle it has remained unaltered to the present day for the production of our medical

OZONE = active oxygen.

What effect does Ozone have on the Human Body?

1. It helps the liver essentially with detoxification.

2. It enforces decomposition of facts (cholesterol and triglycerides). These fats are

known to be an important damaging factor for the blood vessels (heart attack,


3. It considerably improves the metabolism of the cells, the motor of energy

production ion the body

4. It brakes down the level of uric acid, which is the cause of gout and a damaging

factor for the vessels, or reduces it considerably

5. It improves the blood flow, reduces circulation troubles and prevents new


6. It reduces clotting of the red blood corpuscles and thus improves the transport of

oxygen and the blood flow.

7. It increases the amount of oxygen available to the tissue and thus leads to a better


8. It kills many kinds of bacteria, viruses, and fungi and prevents their reappearance.

Types of Ozone Therapy...

Ozone therapy is about 80 years old and has been used very successfully by therapists

world-wide. Millions of patients have been treated in different ways. Injections

intramuscular, subcutaneous (i.e. beneath the skin), the intravenous and intra-arterial,

mixed with blood as a small own blood treatment.

In special cases, it can be done as injections e.g. in pain areas,

myogeloses, in joints, around joints and under ulcers (ulcerated legs)

in and around varices, capillary varices, and cellulites.

An important landmark in the ozone therapy is the possibility of doing a “hyperbar Ozone Therapy” with the Vacozon machine. This unprecedented intensive ozone therapy becomes possible with this method and an exact dosage. In this therapy, ozone is added to the hemoglobin (red blood pigment=oxygen transportation system and the blood plasma (oxygen transportation system through physical solution) under high pressure from an infusion bottle. With this principle, ozone and oxygen are absorbed in much higher quantities and thus also reach the damaged area in higher quantities when flowing back into the system of vessels. The effect of the Hyperbar Ozone therapy depends on the quantity and concentration of the ozone and has been documented by several authors. In thousands of treatments especially this form of therapy (which has no side effects at all if it is applied correctly) has had positive effects even with very bad diseases. Fields of application for the Ozone Therapy especially for the “Hyperbar Ozone Therapy” (only the most important ones are listed here)

• Arthroses of all kinds

• Arterial calcification of the coronary arteries (pain of the heart

during stress and rest

• All liver damage due to alcohol or viruses

• Disturbed blood circulation in arms, legs (ulcers) and in the brain

• Rehabilitation after apoplexy (including paralysis)

• Rheumatic diseases e.g. muscle or joint rheumatism, lumbago,

ischiatic pain.

• High blood fats

• High level of uric acid (gout)

• Delayed physical recovery after serious diseases

• Additional therapy of cancer (verified therapy success)

• Various skin diseases (acne, eczema)

• All diseases of the eye caused by reduced blood circulation

• Migraine

• Many kinds of vertigo

• General tiredness

One important field of application for ozone-oxygen therapy especially concerning the “Hyper bar Ozone Infusion Therapy” has not been mentioned yet. Precautions against diseases, especially in connection with existing risks, such as nicotine, high cholesterol, high uric acid, high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes and old age. 50 years ago, life expectance was at about 50 years, today, on average, it is between 70 and 77 years, with old age there is a considerable increase of general changes of tissue, such as calcification of all the blood vessels (myocardial infarction, apoplexy, reduced blood circulation in the legs etc.); poor oxygen absorption through the lungs;general failure of the defensive systems of the body and cancer. Since the reasons for increasingly negative changes are a bad oxygen supply and a poor metabolism in the cells, the ozone-oxygen therapy is absolutely able to delay the damage (diseases) considerably or to prevent them completely due to its testified biochemical and physiological effects.

Since this therapy has probably improves or healed thousands of diseases of this kind, it is highly recommended to protect oneself as well as possible against such diseases and to achieve a sure healing at a beginning stage. Especially the treatment of a disease in its beginning stage should be supported, since most of the patients only turn to ozone therapy in a late stage of their disease, when no other form of therapy can show any hope.

Colon Hydro Therapy

What is Colon-­‐Hydro-­‐Therapy?
Colon-Hydro-Therapy is a method of rinsing and rehabilitation of the intestines. It comes from the USA and has been applied successfully there for years.

Who needs a Colon-­‐Hydro-­‐Therapy?

Most people suffer from malfunctions of symbiosis, the so called dys-biosis of the normal community of bacteria and man, Due to sterilised and denatured food, false nutrition and a wrong way of living, environmental pollution, toxics and medicine abuse, the balance between man and bacteria is destroyed. Consequently the defensive ability of the organism is more paralysed.

More than 30% of the population have a malfunction of the assimilation because of a preponderance of disease-procuring intestinal bacteria. There is no sufficient supply of oxygen in the body tissue any more. Toxic and waste material are not broken down and excreted fast enough.

The inevitable result is an auto-intoxication of the body.Loss of vitality, exhaustion, depression, lack of concentration, aggressivity, and excessive fear may be the results.Diseases like infections, inflammations, rheumatism, polyarthritis, acne, psoriasis, other diseases of the skin, as well as high blood pressure, migraine, allergies and many other ailments can today be put down to malfunctions of the intestines. For along time, immunologic processes in the human body were looked upon from the standpoint of infections, but by now, it is well known that there is a close connection between assimilation and the immune system. 80% of the immune system are located in the walls of the small and large intestines.

Immunoglobulin (protein substances with defensive ability) is mainly produced in the intestines. The mucous membrane of the large intestine is the first and most important defence line against toxins. Liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs and skin-surface then follow in second place.

Professor Otto Wartburg (winner of the world Nobel- Prize 1931) already realised that a weak immune system due to adisturbed assimilation in the intestines furthers the development and spreading of cancer cells considerably. Large parts of the population of our civilised world suffer from constipation. The intestines have ceased their normal motion due to a year-long false nutrition. Waste products, incrustations and hard substances in the (intestinal bags) prevent the normal peristaltic (rhythmical, worm-like movement of the intestines) and therefore also the transport of the intestinal contents. Only increasingly strong laxatives with their damaging effects of the intestinal mucosa offer a certain relief.

Healthy intestines are the basis for a healthy body. What can you do?

• Rinsing of the intestines with the Colon-Hydro-Therapy and orientation towards normalisation (healing is only possible after rinsing.
• Changing the eating habits.
• Working for health (e.g. in form of exercises).

What effects does Colon-­‐Hydro-­‐Therapy Have?

The therapy removes the accumulated stagnated stool and decay substances effectively from the intestine walls. This natural cleaning process which puts an end to the symptoms that are directly or indirectly due to the non-functioning of the intestines.

How is the therapy performed?

The patient lies comfortably on his/her back on a bed. Water of different temperatures flows into his/her intestines through a plastic tube. Through a closed tube system, the dissolved intestinal contents and the water are conducted to the sewage. By performing a soft massage of the abdominal wall, the inflowing water especially to this point. With the Colon-Hydro-Therapy an unprecedented thorough rinsing with rehabilitation of the colon becomes possible. The dissolution effect of the water together with the cold-warm stimulation of the intestine causes it to take up its activity again and to transport the cumulated and stagnating contents of the intestines away. Addition of oxygen feeds the healthy and necessary intestinal bacteria. The colon-hydro therapy causes no pain or cramps and is felt as being very pleasant and relaxing for the patients. The closed system prevents any unpleasant phenomena for the patient or the therapist such as smells etc.

The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.
