Urea Based Emollients
What is Urea?
Urea is a substance that is found naturally in the skin, which by its nature is very attracted to water. It is used to help rehydrate dry, scaly skin. Dry skin results in lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells known as the statum corneum.
How does a Urea based emollient work?
Urea based creams heal skin by dissolving dry, damaged cells as it draws in moisture and helps skin retain it, leaving a healthful texture. The active ingredient in these creams, Urea, is naturally present in the outer layer of the skin and is well established, scientifically proven, potent therapy against the pain and itching of dry skin. It is a powerful hydrating, moisturizing agent, that helps to maintain the integrity of the skin.
Herbal Cream Foot Deodorant
This herbal cream foot deodorant is an all natural foot care product which contains no aluminum or alcohol. The patented formula works by killing the fungus and bacteria on the skin that causes foot odour. A 3.5 year Scientific Study has proven this anti-bacterial, anti-fungal foot deodorant to be 99% effective for up to 7 days. It can take up to 2 weeks for the bacteria and fungus to come back or regenerate. It is also useful in the treatment of certain foot conditions, such as plantar warts, as it acts as a drying agent and promotes healing.
Fungicidal Foot Wash
This fungicidal foot wash is a cleaning wash that helps relieve itching, dryness and other symptoms associated with athlete's foot while it safely refreshes your feet. This patented soap is enriched with tea tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia) - an essential oil used naturally as a disinfectant to fight germs and as an antiseptic to help prevent re-infection. This cleansing wash is to be used 3x per week when you bathe to help relieve the symptoms and to assist in the treatment of your fungal infection.
This fungicidal, sanitizing deodorant spray utilizes the triple action of Chlorophyll, Formalin and Benzalkonium Chloride. Formalin is a proven disinfectant and fumigant with penetrating power. Benzalkonium Chloride is an all-purpose anti-bacterial agent. It is used in sterile storage, and as a detergent as well as a germicide. Chlorophyll is used effectively for deodorization. This product is used to disinfect the bathing areas and footwear. This product is used specifically on surfaces where the fungus may thrive and is not to be used directly on skin. This procuct needs to be used once a week on your shoes and on your bathing surfaces.
Vitamin A supplements aid in maintaining a strong immune system, fight skin inflammation, support healthy skin and cell growth, and prevent malignant skin growths that may be caused by skin warts. We recommend taking Vitamin A supplements if you suffer with plantar warts, as people with a weakened immune system are more prone to getting a wart virus than others. Consumption of Vitamin A ensures that one enjoys a healthy immune system that functions properly. Vitamin A is also important for healthy epithelial membranes and healthy skin.
Vitamin A contains antioxidant properties that counteract free radicals in the body system that cause cellular and tissue damage. It also prevents one's cells from becomeing overactive. Vitamin A is also required for skin re-growth and wound healing. It is necessary for the support of all internal and external epithelial cells. It also aids in the formation of glycoproteins. Glycoproteins help the cells come together, creating soft tissues. Vitamin A regulates skin cell differentiation and in so doing inhibits the replication cycle of the HPV virus and consequently, the formation of warts. A study conducted by the University of New York showed that consumption of Vitamin A helps control malignant cells in your body.
Zinc supplements aid in regulating immune function and wound healing. We recommend taking Zinc supplements if you suffer with plantar warts, as people with a weakened immune system are more prone to getting a wart virus than others.
Zinc is an "essential trace element" because our bodies only need very small amounts of it. According to the European Journal of Immunology, the human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells). T cells help the body control and regulate immune responses, and attack infected or cancerous cells. Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune system function.
Zinc also plays a role in wound healing. Zinc helps to maintain skin integrity and structure. Patients experiencing chronic wounds or ulcers often have deficient zinc metabolism and lower serum zinc levels.
NeuRemedy is a dietary supplement containing a signature benfotiamine product, NeuRemedy, along with methylcobalamin, a naturally occurring highly bioactive spcialzed form of Vitamin B12. NeuRemedy supports healthy nerve function in the feet and legs by delivering a highly bioactive form of micro-nutrient thiamine to where it is needed, the nerve cells. We recommend NeuRemedy if you suffer with peripheral neuropathy, as it can be a result from thimaine deficiency.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a medical condition, frequently associated with diabetes, in which the nerves that travel from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body funciton improperly. People who suffer from peripheral neurpathy commonly experience burning, tingling, numbness and/or shooting pains to their feet and legs. People sufferring with peripheral neuropathy caused by thiamine deficiency or vitamin B12 deficiency may experience significant relief by taking these vitamins.
How does NeuRemedy work?
Adequate blood levels of the micro-nutrient thiamine are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Recent studies have shown thaat many people suffering from peripheral neuropathy have low plasma lebels of this essential micro-nutrient. They need a more bioactive form of thiamine for their nerves to function properly. This population includes, but is not limited to, people with Diabetes and the elderly.

Non-Woven Fabric Medical Tape
Non-woven fabric medical tape is a self-adhesive fabric sheet for secure and rapid fixation. It is made from white polyester material and coated with hypoallergenic adhesive on quick-release backing paper. This medical tape also provides complete coverage of the entire dressing, thus reducing the risk of contamination. Its excellent conformability simplifies shaping around joints and awkward body contours to allow the patient greater freedom of movement. The tape is permeable to both air and moisture, helping to reduce the risk of maceration.
Tubular gauze bandages are designed to protect and secure primary dressings. This gauze works particularly well on toes and fingers. It is made from 100% white or beige cotton yarn knitted in a continuous, seamless tube and is easy to apply.
This adhesive film is waterproof and aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination.

Heel Pain Kit
What is a Heel Pain Kit?
Our Heel Pain Kit is a kit specifically for those who suffer with Plantar Fasciitis.
This kit is also helpful if you suffer with arch pain, or ball of the foot pain.
All components of our kit are easy to use, and have proven to reduce the
painful symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis.
What is in the Heel Pain Kit?
Foot Roller: Specially designed for your feet; the foot roller is a rigid tubular device constructed of natural rubber. The foot roller can be placed in the freezer, and the foot is rolled over this device to help break up fibrous adhesions and stimulate blood to come to the area to begin the healing process. This is also a form of icing.
Plant Based Topical Pain Relief: In combination with the foot roller, we recommend our patients to use a Plant Based Topical Analgesic, which is made with natural mint leaves, and provides temporary relief when applied to painful areas. It has a cooling, analgesic effect, and is a form of icing as well.
Resistance Band: A Medium-strength Resistance Band is used to perform stretching exercises. Many times, the cause of plantar heel and arch pain is a result of an imbalance between the gastrocnemius/ soleal complex (calf muscle) and the extensor muscles (muscles on the front of your leg). Stretching the gastrocnemeus/soleus muscle group and strengthening the extensor msucle group will help correct any imbalances.
How Do I Know If I Should Use This Kit?
As with any medical condition, always consult your chiropodist, family physician or health care professional before beginning treatment.
