Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2005
Every year thousands of tourists flock to the Dead Sea in Israel and Jordan to bathe in the healing waters of the sea. The Dead Sea region is highly recognized through out the world for its excellent benefits in treating a wide range of dermatological diseases, rheumatic ailments and respiratory disorders.
The main reason for this popularity with skin care conscious people is that the Dead Sea contains the highest concentration of salts and minerals out of every body of water in the world. This high natural presence of minerals essential to a healthy skin, coupled with the fact that The Dead Sea is the lowest point on the face of the earth — creates a unique environment of natural health benefits. The region has been a source of fascination throughout the millennia, dating back to the time of Cleopatra who made this captivating oasis her own personal health spa. Although the Dead Sea is better known for the recent discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls which have a high religious value and significance, it is quickly becoming very popular for the skin care benefits that Dead Sea cosmetics provide.
There are many skin care and Dead Sea cosmetic products manufactured using these healthy minerals. These beauty products range from hand and body lotions, to salt scrubs to nail care treatments. The most popular of these home spa products, however, is Dead Sea salt, used in bathing or rubbing onto the skin in the shower. Dead Sea bath salts have been proven to be effective at treating and relieving a wide range of skin ailments most commonly psoriasis, as well as acne, eczema and dry skin. They also effectively cleanse the skin, while toning and firming it and enriching it with the essential minerals which allow it to maintain its natural moisture.
Another popular cosmetic and health product from the Dead Sea are salt scrubs which are made with Dead Sea salt. These scrubs have become a popular commodity among skin care enthusiasts due to their excellent exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The scrubs are a combination of Dead Sea salt and aromatic natural oils and are available in various scents and aromas. People who suffer from psoriasis and eczema have found a relief in the famous Dead Sea mud which is applied to the affected areas of the skin and can drastically reduce the visible effects of psoriasis and eczema diseases. Due to its high mineral content and the fact that its an all natural psoriasis treatment, Dead Sea mud has become a popular way to relieve the dry, itch scaly skin that is associated with psoriasis.
Many Americans are discovering Dead Sea cosmetics during tourist trips to Israel and visits to the Dead Sea. If they have relatives in Israel, many have their family continue to send them these skin care products that they have come to love. Fortunately, there are several companies that have now taken on importing these beauty spa products and now offer them direct to their customers in the United States.
My friend told me that he dipped his arm into Dead Sea mud while on a trip to Israel and it softened and cleared up his psoriasis for a whole week. I decided to try it for myself because I suffer from psoriasis on my elbow. I ordered some mud online and got it in a couple of days. I was surprised because it really worked! I wasnt cured by any means, but any one who has psoriasis knows that any natural remedy that actually works is our lifesaver. says Don Murra of Manhattan Beach, California.

Montmorillonite clay has been used for medicinal purposes over thousands of years by nearly 200 cultures, including the Egyptians, the Aztecs, and other natives of Mexico, South America and North America. Mahatma Gandhi, one of the most respected spiritual and political leaders of the 1900′s, used healing clays in natural medicine for over 25 years, and even astronauts have used this Miracle Clay for strengthening their bodies during space missions. Clay is said to propel the immune system to find a new healthy balance. In this way, the body’s natural immune system has an improved chance of restoring and maintaining health.
Edible Montmorillonite clay is very rare and only found in certain regions of the world. Miracle Clay contains more than 67 minerals. Today more than ever before, diets are lacking essential trace minerals and micronutrients. Most people do not realize the importance of minerals and underestimate their legitimacy and use.

Plainview, NY (PRWEB) May 8, 2010
Now there are twice as many reasons people should visit a dermatologist for yearly skin cancer exams. According to a recent study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people with a history of nonmelanoma lesions face twice the risk of developing other cancers.
Those systemic malignancies include melanoma, lung, colon, and breast cancers. Patients who develop skin cancers may have inherited a family tendency for other types because of an inadequate ability to repair DNA. In addition, the younger a person gets a nonmelanoma skin cancer, the higher his or her risk of developing other cancers.
More than one million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year, outnumbering all other cancers combined. One in five Americans will develop the disease at some point, yet it is one of the most preventable types of cancer.
According to dermatopathologist Dr. George Hollenberg, medical director of Acupath Laboratories in Long Island, New York, there is no reason to delay a clinical exam for skin cancer. The risk is just too big.
The prevalence of skin cancer screening among adults inched higher during the first half of this decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2000, one in seven adults said they had ever undergone a head-to-toe skin exam by a dermatologist or other physician; by 2005, this figure rose to one in six. Those are still risky odds. An annual screening is ideal because finding a growth in its early stages can mean the difference between life and death.
Most melanomas can be seen by the naked eye, adds Dr. Hollenberg. Usually there is a long period of time when the tumor grows beneath the top layer of skin but does not penetrate the deeper layers. This slow growth means the cancer may be cured if a tumor is found before it spreads deeper. Mortality rates are directly related to the depth of the cancer. If all skin cancers were found and treated early on, the disease would be nearly 100 percent curable.
Researchers speculate that the popularity of tanning beds may be one cause of higher melanoma rates. Exposure to UV radiation from indoor tanning lamps has been linked to both melanoma and squamous cell cancer. For young women, using tanning beds for the first time before age 35 increases melanoma risk by as much as 75 percent. In response to skin cancer concerns, some states now require parental consent for teenagers or ban anyone under 18 from using salon tanning beds.
Dr. Hollenberg clarifies the process and importance of vigilant screening:
How often should someone check for abnormalities? Do monthly self-exams for suspicious moles and spots. Recruit a partner for those hard-to-spot spots. If you notice anything changing, growing, or bleeding on your skin, see a dermatologist.
Who is at risk? Its misleading to think that only a certain demographic should be screened. Exams are a necessary routine no matter your age or your ethnicity. According to Dr. Hollenberg, its a myth that melanoma primarily affects older people: it is the number one cancer in adults aged 25-29.
Do I need a doctors opinion? A dermatologist or regular provider should perform a clinical skin exam at least once a year (more often if you have a history of skin cancer). Through the American Academy of Dermatology’s National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Screening program, volunteer doctors perform free skin cancer screenings.
Multiple studies have shown that physicians are more likely to detect melanomas at a thinner stage compared with non-physicians. According to recent research, 81% percent of physician-detected melanomas were clinically thin compared with 62% percent of melanomas detected by laypersons. Research published in the August 2009 issue of Archives of Dermatology showed that most melanomas detected in a dermatology office were found as a result of doctor-initiated exams instead of a specific patient complaint. Doctors can educate patients about the signs and symptoms of melanoma and train them in how to perform a thorough self-examination with the aid of informational brochures, handheld mirrors, combs, and hair-dryers.
What to look for? The American Academy of Dermatology has revised the ABCDs of Melanoma Detection by adding an “E” for evolving. A mole or skin lesion that is evolving, or changing in size, shape, or color should be brought to the attention of a dermatologist. This is in addition to other characteristics of moles for which individuals should check their skin: A symmetry (one half unlike the other half), Border (irregular, scalloped or poorly defined), Color (varies from one area to another; shades of tan and brown, black; sometimes white, red or blue), and Diameter (the size of a pencil eraser or larger). A mole with any of these characteristics, or one that is an “ugly duckling”, meaning it looks different from the rest, should be brought to a dermatologist’s attention.
What happens next? If an area on the skin looks abnormal, a doctor may recommend a biopsy.A biopsy is the only certain way of identifying skin cancer and determining the specific type of cancer, says Dr. Hollenberg. In a biopsy, the doctor removes suspicious cells or tissues with a local excision. A dermatopathologist then examines the growth under a microscope to check if it is benign or malignant.
Bio: As the founding director of Acupath Laboratories, Inc., Dr. George Hollenberg supervises the analysis of thousands of biopsies each year, utilizing the most cutting-edge technology in histology and immunocytochemistry, as well as the latest advances in computerized report preparation. He is a veteran in the fields of pathology and dermatopathology, with expertise in the areas of dysplastic nevi, melanoma and other forms of cancer. Board-certified in dermatopathology, and clinical and anatomic pathology, Dr. Hollenberg boasts visiting fellowships in dermatopathology from New York University Medical Center and Jefferson University Medical Center. After receiving his medical degree from New York Medical College, he completed his residency in clinical pathology at Cornell University Medical Center and in anatomic pathology at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. Dr. Hollenberg is currently a consultant in dermatopathology for North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset and an assistant professor in dermatology at Stony Brook University Medical Center. Often contacted by editors for his expertise, Dr. Hollenberg has written dozens of medical articles and has had his work published in various acclaimed medical journals and publications.

(PRWEB UK) 6 January 2012
Performance statistics published by NHS Direct show its telephone and online services were used over 730,000 times over the festive period (19 December 2011 to 2 January 2012). Nearly 464,000 – around 6 out of 10 – of those contacts were via NHS Directs online health and symptom checkers.
NHS Direct answered over 267,000 calls in this period.* Over 25,000 of these calls were to the NHS 111 pilots that NHS Direct is involved in delivering. The number of telephone assessments completed was lower than the same period last year (by around five per cent). This is thought to be due to the severe weather in the 2010/11 Christmas and New Year period, which contributed to an increase in call volumes.
A large number of patients accessed NHS Directs online health and symptom checkers on the web or via a free mobile app for Android and iPhone smartphones. Following the initial online assessment, those patients who needed further advice were able to provide their contact details to receive a call back from an NHS Direct nurse advisor (click-to-call back).
The busiest days on the telephone were Christmas Eve (Saturday 24 December), and the three bank holidays (Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 December and Monday 2 January) with over 98,500 calls made over these four days. Over the same period NHS Directs online health and symptom checkers were used over 133,000 times.
Throughout the festive period 99% of patients with the most urgent needs calling the 0845 4647 service were dealt with in less than 20 minutes. Over 50% of calls were completed within NHS Direct meaning that patients were given advice to allow them to care for themselves at home, only needing to seek further help if their symptoms persisted.
The most common reasons for calling NHS Directs 0845 4647 service over Christmas and New Year were dental pain, abdominal pain, rashes and skin problems, chest pain and medicine enquiries. The most popular online health and symptom checkers were for colds and flu, abdominal pain, rashes and skin problems, diarrhea and vomiting and female sexual health issues
Nick Chapman, NHS Direct Chief Executive, said:
The Christmas and New Year period is a very busy time for us and our staff have worked tremendously hard to help hundreds of thousands of patients get the advice they need quickly. In more than half of cases the advice we provided meant that patients did not need to be referred to another service, helping to reduce demand on busy face-to-face services such as A&E departments or GP surgeries.”
Over the last year we have seen a growing demand from patients wanting to access our health advice and information online. Christmas was no exception with usage of our online health and symptom checkers far outweighing call volumes. Were pleased that the Government is committed to developing an NHS 111 online service, which will complement the new telephone service. This will ensure that in the future patients can continue to access health advice from the channel they want to.
*This includes all calls made to the 0845 4647 helpline and other commissioned services that NHS Direct provides for local health organizations, such as GP out-of-hours and support for ambulance services to handle their Category C calls. It also includes those calls that came via the click to-call back online service.
