Climatotherapy for Vitiligo. Our research continues.
For over 40 years, the shores of the Dead Sea are home to many patients with skin diseases, full of confidence and hope in this "miraculous" therapy, seeking relief for their chronic symptoms. Almost all of them indeed leave this area with a greatly improved quality of life, and often for a long remission of their disease. This "natural" therapy has repeatedly been the subject of scientific and clinical studies, reporting and confirming its outstanding success.
Dr. Marco Harari has recently wrote "More than four decades after being studied, Dead Sea climatotherapy can be considered now as a natural and simple dermatological treatment, highly effective and free of side effects, that requires, in order to obtain optimal results, a medical and individualized follow-up for each patient."
Dead Sea climatotherapy is a successful treatment option for vitiligo, although the mode of action has escaped definition and no standardized treatment protocol has been developed so far. VRF's team has descended 400 meters below the sea level again, this time on the Israeli side, to continue our research in climatotherapy for vitiligo.
Public beach next to the LOT hotel is very well maintained and attracts scores of swimmers while private hotel beaches are being renovated before the next tourist season begins in March.

I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
