After the growing numbers of eczema cases especially in children, psoriasis is said to be the next most numerous skin disease, with up to 2% of the U.S. population having plaque psoriasis; and it is found worldwide. Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory disorder, and the predominant autoimmune disease in the U.S., affecting an older age group (around 18 to 39 and 50 to 69). The plaque type of psoriasis is the most common, although several other distinctive clinical variants of psoriasis are recognized. Up to 10-20% of patients with plaque psoriasis also experience psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis shows up as red patches covered with silverish scales, and there can be pain involved. The economic impact of psoriasis is high, with direct and indirect costs coming to around $100 billion.
"Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis," says Dr. Flavia Fedeles, a dermatologist with Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. But you can take steps to reduce flare-ups and manage their severity when they do appear."
Pharmaceutical companies are now advertising their biologic (affecting the immune system) psoriasis treatments, direct to the consumer. For those who are candidates, the side-effect profile can be severe and limiting: increased infections, MS, seizures, inflammation of the nerves, blood disorders, and cancer. Many, especially older patients, drop out of the treatment program.
There is no cure; lifelong treatment is required, and adherence is critical, to attain any type of disease control.
Our psoriasis product’s ingredients are specific to the disease and meet FDA monograph. One can recognize how the above, anti-inflammatory, therapeutic approach addresses several components of this disease (and many other skin diseases). Note how the non-steroidal methodology of limiting inflammation and using the salicylate or other acids, to meet the FDA monograph, along with select natural botanical extracts for each specific component of the disease, can be effective. The additional components have been studied and chosen to enhance the effectiveness of the final product. Psoriasis being a particularly complex skin disease, in addition to what has been described to address the inflammation, there are components for healing, moisture retention, and rebuilding of the skin. The product contains additional proprietary blends of extracts and vitamin compounds that penetrate, debride, and reduce plaque cells; keep down infection; help reduce infiltrates; aid in decreasing inflammation; moisturize; aid in speeding the healing process; address the immune response; and support new skin growth.
This is a complex, but safe and effective addition to the treatment of psoriasis, especially when there has been a failure with other treatments, or adherence is poor. The product is not greasy, rubs in well, and does not have an offensive smell—very consumer friendly.

The difference is in the approach by healthcare professionals, R&D, and science. The products are a composite of natural adaptogenic substances, including those of the anti-inflammatory system and endocannabinoid system (ECS) modulating network, selected to synergistically enhance and safely stabilize physiological and pathophysiological processes along the disease pathway. This is a multilayered formulation methodology, supporting the relief of various inflammatory conditions, with new technology and new delivery systems. These products address common, but severe disorders that include: management of pain and stiffness (human and equine); hemorrhoids; psoriasis; eczema; dry and damaged skin; acne; burns; cold sores; wound care; immune system aids; respiratory aid, and vitality boost. These are all natural-based, botanical products, with no animal components or testing, and no added dyes or scents.
All products are direct-to-consumer nutraceutical products, which encompass the vision, of Changing People’s Lives for the Better, and delivering, at the pinnacle of nutraceutical achievement, a challenge to current pharmaceutical treatments for many acute and chronic disease states that may be lifestyle limiting. They are within healthcare categories of untapped, unmet, underserved, areas of phytopharmaceutical science, and build better choices, better healthcare, better lifestyles and lifespan, for individuals and families across the globe.
Safety, efficacy, doing it better, and eliminating side-effects are the common gossamers running repeatedly, throughout the product lines. These products are an improvement to the current standards of care; of inordinate value to underserved consumer healthcare segments, providing a responsible and prodigious level of safety and efficacy; and they can expand or supplement any current product line or treatment protocol.
The products are produced in the USA, in an FDA/GMP registered lab that conducts batch testing and certification. Each ingredient was selected by the R&D team, and the products do not contain any unknown components. The products can be reviewed from outcomes/evidence based and proof of theory methodology—which is today’s measure of clinical acceptability. Along with the topical products that address inflammatory diseases, there are also oral products directed toward enhancing the immune system, vitality/brain performance, respiratory care, and averting the flu. Each product is tested and ready for marketing, and they have stable component and manufacturing sources.

SKIN DISEASE PRODUCTS
The skin care products encompass a comprehensive, therapeutic approach, to restructuring the skin along with moisturizing, healing, and restoring original tone. This is achieved by addressing underlying inflammatory process, skin breakdown/damage, and the healing process, by providing what is needed to reduce the disease activity and add continuous protection. The anti-inflammatory process and science, shown to be effective in developing the analgesic, was applied to the skin creams with additional natural healing components specific to each disease, including natural PDE4 inhibitors. They have shown equally successful outcomes. The products have been tested and found to be safe and effective
Specialty skin care products, addressing various skin disease states:
A basic, therapeutic skin cream (nourish, protect, heal) was developed, with a nutrient base on which the therapeutic skin creams were built—anti-inflammatory, all uniquely formulated, with various, scientifically selected botanicals.
Eczema is the number one skin disease affecting all ages, but especially children. Thirty million Americans have eczema, including babies. Similar numbers can be found globally.
Eczema or atopic dermatitis (AD), is a pruritic disease of unknown origin, characterized by itchy dry skin, thickening of the skin, and an increase in skin markings. Eczema may be associated with other immune type diseases. AD has enormous morbidity, and the prevalence is increasing.
Relief, or the limiting of the disease, has not been available to everyone, especially if the condition is steroid resistant. Symptoms may be different for everyone, but our eczema product can aid in the control and limit the damaging effects of the disease, reduce inflammation, heal, and protect the skin.
