Improvement of skin symptoms and mineral imbalance by drinking deep sea water in patients with atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome (AEDS)

Acta Medica (Hradec Kralove). 2002;45(2):83-4.

Abstract

Deep sea water intake improves skin symptoms and mineral imbalance and decreases serum IgE levels mad IgE-inducing cytokines, IL-4, IL-13 and IL-18 in patients with atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome (AEDS), while distilled water intake fails to do so.
