What Doesn't Help the Dripping and Sneezing.


Ugh. Just in time for the holidays, your family starts passing around a cold. Who hasn't been there, done that? While advice for treating colds is everywhere this time of year, here's what won't help cure that cold, according to the experts at The Mayo Clinic.

Antibiotics. These destroy bacteria, but they're no help against cold viruses. Avoid asking your doctor for antibiotics for a cold. You won't get well any faster, and inappropriate use of antibiotics contributes to the serious and growing problem of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Over-the-counter (OTC) cold and cough medications in young children. These medications may cause serious and even life-threatening side effects in children. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns against their use in children younger than age 2. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association has voluntarily modified consumer product labels on OTC cough and cold medicines to state do not use in children under 4 years of age, and many companies have stopped manufacturing these products for young children. The FDA is currently evaluating the safety of these medications in older children. The best thing you can do when you have a cold is take care of yourself. Rest and drink plenty of fluids.


Treating the Flu - What Are Antivirals?

Antiviral drugs are prescription medicines that fight the flu. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the flu vaccine as the first and most important step in preventing flu, antiviral drugs are a second line of defense. They are not sold over the counter and are different from antibiotics. You can only get them if you have a prescription from your doctor.

There are two antiviral drugs recommended by the CDC: Tamiflu and Relenza. (The generic names for these drugs are oseltamivir and zanamivir). It's very important that antiviral drugs be used early (within 24 to 30 hours after the start of symptoms) to treat flu in people who are very sick with the illness (for example, people who are in the hospital) and people who are sick with flu and have a greater chance of getting serious flu complications. Most healthy people with flu, however, do not need to be treated with antiviral drugs.

When used for treatment, these drugs can make you feel better and shorten the time you are sick by one or two days.

Product Highlights


Gloves In A Bottle


Conventional lotions only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture. The problem is they come off when you wash or touch something. Additionally, in order for any moisture to actually improve a dry skin condition, it needs to get below your second major layer of skin. In reality, the only moisture that is going to reach this level is your skin's own natural moisture.

When you apply artificial moisture to the skin's surface you may be sending the wrong message - that your skin is being adequately moisturized, when in fact it is actually dehydrated of natural moisture. This often results in reducing production of natural moisture, which is vital to abate a dry skin condition.

Unlike artificial moisturizers, Gloves In A Bottle bonds with the outer layer of skin to turn it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves. These "invisible gloves" keep moisture-robbing irritants out while helping to retain your skin's own natural moisture, resulting in skin that is better hydrated than what is achieved by conventional lotions.

Gloves In A Bottle is virtually undetectable once dry, lasts four hours or more, and comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells.


Elmore Oil


Elmore Oil is a gentle, natural oil used for massaging into joint and muscle areas to provide relief from arthritis and muscular pain.

Elmore Oil is a mix of four natural ingedients (Olive Oil, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, and Vanilla) combined in a unique way to gain maximum potency from the essential oils used in the formula. You will gain maximum benefit from Elmore Oil by using it regularly.

By massaging Elmore Oil into the pain area, using a gentle rotating action, you assist in the penetration of the oils to the affected area and will gradually reduce the inflamed joints and surrounding tissue.

Use Elmore Oil regularly for at least 14 days to give yourself a fair test of its relief abilities.


Dermal-K


At last there is an easier way to make ugly spider veins disappear without painful shots or lasers and without the side effects of expensive surgery. Formerly available only from dermatologists and plastic surgeons, this professional strength vitamin K cream is applied twice daily to reduce spider veins and enlarged capillaries. Dermal-K Cream also enhances the normal healing of bruised, sunburned or damaged skin and fading scars.

Dermal-K Clarifying Cream is a 5% Vitamin K cream that utilizes a natural dermaceutical delivery system. Vitamin K is an organic substance essential to the liver for the formulation of substances that promote blood clotting. A blend of Vitamin K and other healing compounds, Dermal-K strengthens capillaries, enhances coagulation and heals weakened tissues. Plastic surgeons have long used Vitamin K cream to minimize post-operative bruising and scarring. Dermal-K Cream will is designed to help eliminate unsightly spider veins.

Although men are not immune to spider veins, they are overwhelmingly a female problem. It's estimated that half of the adult female population is plagued by spider veins. Unlike large, bulging varicose veins that can cause pain and even lead to serious health problems, spider veins are primarily a cosmetic problem. They tend to be hereditary, and worsen as we age. Small, thin veins lying close to the skin's surface, spider veins are red or blue in color. They may appear in true "spider" fashion, with web-like groups of veins radiating out from a central area, they can look like fine lines or appear in starburst-like clusters.

Dermal-K Cream is recommended for improvement of spider veins, bruises, capillaries, scars, stretch marks, rosecea, and burns.

Because everyone is different, the amount of time it takes to see results may vary, depending on factors including the severity of your spider veins, your skin's thickness, pH balance and skin type. But Dermal-K will provide remarkable improvement with continued use. A two-ounce jar will last from one to three months, depending on the size of the area you are treating. It can also help fade scar tissue, relieve pain and inflammation from skin irritations, burns or sunburns, and promote natural healing of damaged skin.

Suggested Use:
Apply Dermal-K Cream twice a day. Slightly moisten the area that you want to affect with warm water to ensure the pores are open. You can use a warm, damp wash cloth as a compress to achieve this. Apply Dermal-K directly to the damaged skin or area with capillary involvement. For best results rub lightly and vigorously into the skin. Dermal-K can be applied under day cream, sunscreen, or make-up, however it is recommended that you wait at least 15 minutes before applying the next product.

Allow six weeks to see improvement. Dermal-K Cream will probably affect the smallest veins first; this will give the impression that the diffuse redness (from microscopic veins) is fading, but you may see the larger veins more clearly because of this.

After reaching the desired results, it is recommended to use Dermal-K Clarifying Cream once a day, three days a week to prevent the capillaries from reappearing. Time of results may vary. This is due to factors such as the severity of the problem, the thickness and type of skin, and the PH balance of the skin. Do not apply into eyes or open wounds.

DERMAL K is used for treating capillary redness, bruises, skin irritations, and scarring. Dermal K is a dermaceutical formulation to eliminate spider veins or broken blood capillaries through continued use. The Vitamin K cream with a soothing aloe vera base is known as the "cosmetic surgeon's secret". Also helps rehabilitate the skin, reduces and accelerates the healing of bruised and damaged skin, burns, sunburns and skin irritations.

What is a spider vein?
A spider vein is simply a broken or ruptured capillary that leaks blood which then travels along the exterior of the surrounding capillaries, similar to water running down a pencil. When this blood dries on the outside of the capillaries, what you see through the skin is a spider vein.

How does Dermal K eliminate spider veins?
Dermal K eliminates spider veins by first, repairing the damaged capillary by clogging the hole up. It is the Vitamin K in Dermal K which does this. Secondly, once the leak has stopped, the dried up blood on the exterior of the surrounding capillaries dissolves, thus eliminating the spider vein.

How long does it take?
For most people, using Dermal K twice a day will produce the desired results in four to six weeks. However, length of time for results to be evident may vary. This is due to factors such as severity of the problem, skin type, the thickness of the skin, and the pH balance of the skin. In addition, Dermal-K may not work the same for everyone. It has been found that Dermal K is effective on 94% of all people that have used it. This is due to the above mentioned factors.
