The conclusion manifesto of the Psoriasis Panel at the Kangal Fishy Spa in Turkey.

Psoriasis is a pretty common and chronic skin disease. Together with numerous studies regarding the formation of the diseases there are various treatment applications. However, we should keep in mind that since there is no cure, the disease may repeat itself. In its repetition stage, the psychological aspect of the patient is of great importance. For a long time, spa and climatic treatments have been the ongoing treatment methods for various diseases, and it is in this sense that the fishy spa is interesting.  With its climate, fish and water, which are used by the patients suffering from psoriasis, some positive results have been achieved through natural ultraviolet effects of selenium in the water at high altitudes, and the cleaning of the scums by the fish. 

It is with this aspect and treatment factor, that the spa is a candidate for becoming an internationally accepted and significant center for health care tourism.
