Suffering from psoriasis? Try Ostrožská Nová Ves Sulphur Spa!

A number people suffer from social exclusion and find it hard to make friends. And many of them cannot even make friends at work. The cause of their suffering is a skin disease with characteristic pockets of excessively callous, peeling skin – psoriasis.

We "put our skin on the line" every day, it's the most visible part of our exterior. Though science has long confirmed that psoriasis is not infectious, many cannot look beyond the symptoms of the disease. Prevention isn't possible, but treatment is. Only colour changes remain on the skin – not the typical peeling. Joint ailments that often accompany the disease are also significantly alleviated. For now, no one can explain where psoriasis comes from.

Do you let yourself be "provoked"?

Whether a person comes down with the disease depends on a lot of "provocation" factors. These include stress, exhaustion, infectious diseases, infections and inflammations such as tonsillitis, strep throat, bronchitis, gynaecological infections, diabetes, thyroid disease, allergies and other internal illnesses, childbirth, unhealthy lifestyle, injuries, burns, frostbite, tattoos and even some medications, such as those that treat high blood pressure or mental illness.

Current medicine is unable to permanently cure psoriasis, but it can significantly diminish the symptoms – even so that they are not visible to the naked eye.

Baths help

"Balneotherapy is an adjunct therapy in the resolution of psoriasis. Products containing sulphur intended for home use can be purchased at a pharmacy, but they can never substitute the effects of natural spring sulphur used in specially-prepared spa procedures," explains Dr. Kateřina Macháčková.

"We treat about five hundred psoriasis patients a year just at Ostrožská Nová Ves Sulphur Springs alone. Many go on to have no visible symptoms of the illness for a long time," the dermatologist adds.

Spa treatment is effective due to...

...mental tranquillity and relaxation, which are directly related to readjusting the body's immune response to stimuli that lead to symptomatic psoriasis. The added benefit of spa treatment is that joint problems, which often go hand in hand with psoriasis, are also treated. A combination of rehabilitation, electrotherapy, laser therapy, magnetic therapy, paraffin and mud packs, injections of gas, massage and sulphurous water therapy act to relax the muscles, increase skin circulation and induce the healing process.
