Health Tourism

Egypt possesses a wide range of rich natural resources , including many hot springs. According to scientific research, clay found in these springs has therapeutic properties that can cure numerous bone, skin, kidney, respiratory diseases and other problems Also, the Red Sea water with its chemical composition and abundance of coral reefs can help cure various forms of psoriasis. Socrates, the founder of climatic physiotherapy, referred to this fact in his famous papers entitled "Egypt and Climatic Therapy". He advised people to go to Egypt and enjoy its warm weather and refreshing sea breeze. Following his advice, tourists have been coming to Egypt for hundreds of years for cures to ailments often caused by Europe's colder, more humid climate .


Safaga's potential health benefits were recently in the media spotlight when a group of scientists from the National Research Centre (NRC) found that it helped in the treatment of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. According to the NRC research team, there are several natural factors in Safaga which make it so appropriate for therapy.

The high mountains act as a natural barrier against wind and sand storms. The air is thus free of any suspended grime that could divert and absorb ultraviolet rays essential for treating psoriasis. The curve of the bay accounts for the calm sea, which reflects UV rays further. Due to the abundance of coral reefs, the water is 35 % saltier than in other seas, which greatly helps in psoriasis treatment. More salt, as evidenced in the Dead Sea, also means less gravity. This is thought to improve blood circulation. The balance of saline concentration inside and outside the body also affects the therapy positively.

Sand in the area has also been found to contain radioactive elements and minerals effective in rheumatoid therapy. Analysis also showed the soil to contain black sand, which is useful in curing acute and chronic arthritis, rheumatism and skin inflammations. Those suffering from rheumatoid ailments are buried in the black sand, with the exception of the head, stomach and chest, twice a day, after sunrise and before sunset. Treatment lasts about a month.

Psoriasis patients, on the other hand, bathe in the sea and lie in the sun, also twice a day. The duration of exposure to the sun is prescribed by the therapist and the patient should see rapid improvement in about a month, depending on the case. In acute cases, patients are asked to repeat the course of treatment.

Flowerpot Pen Holder Craft

This is a simple-to-make flowerpot pen holder that is great as a "Thank you" gift.

A terracotta plant pot holds a beautiful, decorated pen (the pen top is embedded in Plaster of Paris in the plant pot).

Supplies needed:

  • Small, unglazed clay (terracotta)
  • flowerpot
  • Plaster of paris
  • Large plastic bowl and stirrer (to mix the plaster)
  • A ballpoint pen with a top
  • Green paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Green florist tape
  • Tissue paper
  • Hot glue gun and glue
Mix an amount of Plaster of Paris that will almost fill the flowerpot (use the directions on the package). Pour the plaster in the flowerpot. Before it hardens, push one or more pen tops into the plaster. (Note: the plaster hardens quickly.)
When the Plaster of Paris hardens, paint it green.

Decorate the pen to look like a flower (or use a green pen). First, wrap the pen with green florists' tape.
Make a tissue paper flower and glue it (using hot glue) to the end of the pen.

Put the decorated pen in the flowerpot (place it in its own top). You now have a great gift for someone you care for.

Tissue Paper Flowers Craft

These flowers are made from folded tissue paper (crepe paper). You can make an entire bouquet of them for a great gift or decoration.

Supplies needed:

  • Tissue paper (crepe paper)
  • Green pipe cleaners (or twist ties)

Cut a few pieces (about 4-6) of tissue paper (crepe paper) about 8 x 10 inches (the exact size doesn't matter).
Put the paper in a pile and fold it like an accordion.

Tie the center of the folded paper with a green pipe cleaner (or twist tie).

Gently pull each piece of paper towards the top center of the flower, separating each sheet of paper from the others (forming the petals of the flower).
