Today, rest in Egypt involves «all inclusive» in the hotel, beach holidays, entertainment, and sometimes shopping. But not many people know that this country has a huge number of healing springs, including hot ones. The clays and waters of these springs are indicated in the treatment of joints, skin diseases, kidney diseases and much more. The composition of the water in the Red Sea has a rich chemical composition, as well as a large number of coral reefs, so swimming in this water helps to treat various forms of psoriasis. Even the ancient Greek thinker Socrates in his writings advised to visit Egypt because of its warm weather and fresh sea breeze. After all, these two main factors still play an important role in the healing of ailments caused by the relatively cold and humid climate of European countries.
The climate and geographical position of Egypt in themselves contribute to the formation of a good mood among the inhabitants of the country and tourists, and also have a positive effect on their health. The stability of this atmosphere throughout the year only intensifies this influence. As a result of this, resorts simply could not but appear in the country, visiting which has a therapeutic and simply preventive effect for human health.
Now it should be said about the resorts of Egypt, which are favorable for medical tourism. Of particular note is Hurghada with its sandy beaches along the Red Sea coast. A constant light breeze from the sea makes it possible to be on the beaches even in summer, during the hottest period. It should be noted the special purity of the entire Red Sea, because not a single river flows into it that would pollute it with silt and sand. The beaches of Hurghada are sandy, with a gentle entrance, which is especially favorable for people with musculoskeletal problems and for tourists with children. The warm waters of the Red Sea in the Hurghada region have a positive, curative effect on people with joint pain and cerebral palsy. The remoteness of the city from the industrial zones of Egypt, the breeze and the dry climate are especially favorable for patients with asthma and broncho-pulmonary ailments.
Not far from Hurghada, there is one unique place — Safaga. Probably, many have heard about this resort, but not everyone guesses about its therapeutic possibilities. But this resort is the best place in Egypt for the treatment of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. This is influenced by a number of natural and climatic features of this region. So, high mountains are a natural barrier from wind and sandstorms. The clean air in Safaga, as well as the bays with calm waters, reflect ultraviolet rays, which affect the treatment of psoriasis. The Red Sea itself is saltier due to the fact that rivers with their fresh water do not flow into it. In the area of Safaga, there are especially many coral reefs, which makes the sea water here 35% more salty. It is also a very good factor in the treatment of psoriasis. In addition, the salinity of the sea water improves blood circulation. The sand in the Safaga resort is enriched with radioactive elements and minerals. The soils also contain black sand. All this is very beneficial for the treatment of rheumatism, chronic arthritis and skin inflammations.
Also, those suffering from rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis can be advised to visit Aswan. This city with its dry climate is well suited for sand baths. The most ideal time for treatment is from May to September. The bright sun and dry weather of Aswan all year round provide ideal conditions for the treatment of bronchial asthma, colds, etc. In addition, a large number of hotels in this region have special treatment sectors with well-trained specialists for them.
Climate therapy is not a panacea, but it is undoubtedly an effective adjunctive therapy. If we add that a large number of people live in ecologically unfavorable corners of our planet, then we can say that Egypt is an ideal place to improve health and accumulate strength. Here, the body, having got rid of the destructive influence of harmful factors, rejuvenates and heals.
In the list of all medical places in Egypt, the first place is still occupied by the Siwa oasis, which has many resorts for treatment. Mineral water, thanks to the underground boiling of mud, helps in the treatment of kidney stones. The oasis is distinguished by an average air temperature and a particularly clean atmosphere.
To the south of Cairo is the Helwan region. It is famous for its springs that provide unique mineral waters. Its water is used for baths and inhalation and drinking. In terms of their composition, these springs are incomparable with the mineral waters of the world. All types of rheumatism are treated with Ain Issira natural clay. This clay contains unique components. The Helwan Sulfur Center treats diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuritis, myositis, myopathy, chronic bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, bronchial asthma, skin diseases, including scabies, eczema, psoriasis, etc.
In conclusion, let’s talk a little about the medical resorts of Sinai. This region has the largest concentration of sulfuric water on Earth. Well, the most famous health resorts, of course, are the Pharaoh’s Baths and Oun Mussa. The Pharaonic Baths are located along the Gulf of Suez, about a kilometer from it. This group of sulfuric hot springs is well suited for the treatment of rheumatism. The Pharaohs Bath also has caves in the rocks, which are something like hot baths. The temperature is high there due to hot steam from the springs below, under the caves. The Oun Moussa region consists of 12 springs and is located in the same Sinai area, near the Gulf of Suez. Bathing in these springs is beneficial for the same therapeutic purposes as in the springs of the Bath of the Pharaohs.
So, to summarize, let’s say that Egypt can be considered not only as a resort for a beach holiday, but also as a very decent destination for medical tourism. After all, here you can deal with the prevention and treatment of a number of very unpleasant diseases. And people knew about this even in the days of the pharaohs.
