Natural Solarium

Nature has provided the Red Sea region with an unusual combination of unique healthful treasures whose therapeutic effects are not only attributed to the composition of the water, but also to the special biometeorology conditions of the area. These conditions are just right for the treatment of chronic illnesses such as: Psoriasis, Atopic dermatitis, Mucovisidosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bronchial Asthma and Pruritus (which is associated with renal failure).

Natural treatments for chronic diseases have succeeded where all other conventional medicines have failed.

The medical rehabilitation center uses the biometeorological conditions of the area to treat cases of unremitting illness such as chronic diseases of the skin, lungs and kidneys, combining a natural solarium with a complete professional hospital at its heart.

We offer services such as examinations, dietary programs, reflexology, physiotherapy, natural solariums, manual physiotherapy, and cultural excursions.

Psoriasis: The main problem that occurs for psoriasis patients is that conventional treatments which include steroid ointments, artificial ultraviolet rays and powerful systemic drugs, all have serve side effects on the skin and internal organs. Consequently, climatotherapy has now become a well-established modality for treatment. It involves various regiments of sea water bathing and sun light exposure. Combined with the application of emollients, rest, and relaxation over several weeks. At El Salam Hospital the natural treatment is generally composed of selective ultraviolet phototherapy along with bathing in the sea.

A study has been undertaken in the Red Sea by the National Research Center (NRC) in Cairo. The research involved evaluating the effects of climate on psoriasis in terms of the degree in which the skin clears up. In eighty patients with psoriasis, 90% achieved marked to excellent improvement, which compares favorably to other regiments used in the treatment of psoriasis.


Atopic dermatitis: It can be treated in Hurghada since it is a mite free environment due to the low level of humidity.

Bronchial Asthma: The dry air makes treating Bronchial Asthma feasible at the Red Sea. Along with the fresh warm air constitutes the best atmosphere for Bronchial Asthma patients, especially in the spring when most Bronchial Asthma patients suffer from acute flaring of the illness across Europe due to medication.
