Beginning of season of sand bath treatment

#Libyan_Cloud_News_Agency – Jalu.

In the hot summer months, the city of Jalu is famous for its popular medicine: sand bath in the desert. “The sand bath is a treatment for different diseases such as joint pain, rheumatism, nerves, paralysis or inflammation”, said Jaber al-Adabi, a specialist of the popular treatment in the city of Jalu. “This honorable profession was acquired by my father. It starts in June and ends mid-August due to the hot temperature in the afternoon that climb up to 50C.

The patient lies in a hole, only the head stays out. He remains ten minutes. Then he relaxes in a tent for half an hour to absorb the heat of the sun. I wish that young people learn this humanitarian profession.”
