Patient discussion about sea

Q. Is the dead sea really worth the flight all the way to Israel for psoriasis treatment? I've been hearing from lots of people about it lately. They say the mud and the salt there is a better treatment than anything else. Is that true?

A. The treatment in the dead sea is very very good and recommended for psoriatic patients, if other treatments don't help. It is not the mud and minerals that do the effect, it is mostly the phototherapy- meaning the high exposure to sun, that in your case is very helpful. It is also the stress relief of going on vacation for a few weeks that is known to cause improvement. I think it is worth the money - you are treating your body and soul at the same time.

The court first examined the district court's findings that (1) the layoffs at Sea Ray were caused by two separate events that occurred in two different plan years (the downturn in the small-boat market in 1989-1990, and the decline in the large-boat business caused by the Federal luxury tax in 1990-1991), (2) because the causes of the layoffs were independent, the percentage decline should be considered separately for each of those years and (3) employees who terminated their employment voluntarily as a result of the company's economic downturn should be excluded from the partial termination calculation, along with employees whose employment terminated as a result of death, disability, retirement or for cause.
