What is a portable Nebuliser and which is the best one?

This week I want to talk to you about Nebulisers. What they are, how they are used and which one HealthCare4All recommends!

what is a nebuliser?

First of all, What is a Nebuliser?

A nebuliser is a medical device that transforms medication from liquid to a mist so it can be inhaled into the lungs more easily. Being inhaled through a mouthpiece, the dissolved drugs are able to reach affected areas directly and quickly. Nebuliser machines are an effective way of delivering certain types of medication to infants and children suffering from asthma, or anybody else who finds it difficult to use an inhaler.

As Web MD informs using nebulisers to deliver certain medication is often referred to as “breathing treatment.” Nebuliser machines are available in both table top models, typically designed for home use, and portable versions. Whilst table top models have to be plugged into the electricity mains, portable nebulisers machines are usually smaller and are run on batteries.

What are nebulisers used for?

Nebulisers are used for the treatment, both domiciliary and emergency, of many respiratory conditions.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

People who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis are one of the primary users of nebuliser machines. Those with CF often rely on saline nebulisers, as the machine can allow the patient to inhale saline solutions more easily. The saline helps to thin mucus, preventing bacteria to grow in a warm environment. This helps antibiotics be delivered more effectively

Chronic Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

As the BBC informs, nebuliser machines are also used by patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a type of obstructive lung condition, which is characterised by an individual having poor air flow in the long term.

Emphysema

Emphysema affects millions of people around the world. Smoking is one of the leading causes of this lung condition. A nebuliser machines is often used to give emphysema patients medication through steam formation to help them cope with the disease and feel better. As My Emphysema Symptoms writes, nebuliser machines can be a faster and less time-consuming way for emphysema patients to get treated without having any side effects.

Asthma

If an asthma patient has used a nebuliser during a hospital visit, they may be recommended one at home, if their GP or consultant believes they may benefit from one. These machines can be an effective way to provide respiratory assistance to people who find it difficult to use an inhaler, such as young children.

There are many different types of nebulisers to buy. Healthcare4all has a range of nebuliser machines available to buy, including asthma nebulisers, emphysema nebulisers, turboneb nebulisers, allergy nebulisers, COPD nebulisers, portable nebulisers, world traveller nebulisers, microair nebulisers, microneb nebulisers, amongst others.

There is only ONE nebuliser which i normally recommend. The MicroBase Pocket AirNeb Mini Portable Nebuliser, it is £74.99 from HealthCare4All and the reviews I have been getting are outstanding!

“Very happy with the product, I use it for my one month old baby, not noisy at all which helps a lot. Very easy to clean which makes my life easier, we tried the omron but it was difficult to use with baby as it had to be plugged in. Strongly recommend”

“I must admit I was a little bit unsure when I ordered it but I’m over the moon with every thing this little machine
Does its far better than the larger machine I use at home its small compact so easy to use and clean the bonus of it all it’s easy to carry as it’s not much bigger than your hand it comes with its own carry case which keeps every thing together a lady could put it in a hand bag its that small I would recommend this nebuliser to any one without any worry”

“Value for money I’m over the moon with it it’s small and light but as good it not better than the big machine I would have no problem recommending it to any one it easy to load easy to use and so easy to clean comes in a tidy well made zip up bag”

“Excellent service and a great value for money product. Silent, compact, and for the size very effective. Don’t leave home without one ! What a great item. Does exactly what it says on the tin ! Used it on the day of arrival it was so quiet I wasn’t sure it was working !”

Do you have Sinusitis? ‘Ease the Sneeze’ with Healthcare4All

HealthCare4All’s Essential Top 3 Products to ‘Ease the Sneeze’ when suffering from Sinusitis

Image result for colds and flu

It appears that I was not the only person that just had the awful ‘Flu’.  Everyone seems to be sniffling or coughing at the moment!

The problem is that even after all the usual symptoms are gone, there are many unfortunate people, like myself, that end up with Sinusitis. Its kind of like a parting gift from the cold virus that is definitely not wanted and so hard to shift!

I decided to write this weeks blog on what sinusitis is, its signs and symptoms and what I and HealthCare4All recommend to ‘Ease The Sneeze!’

What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis is a common condition in which the lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed. It’s usually caused by a viral infection and often improves within two or three weeks.

The sinuses are small, air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead.

The mucus produced by your sinuses usually drains into your nose through small channels. In sinusitis, these channels become blocked because the sinus linings are inflamed (swollen).

Signs and symptoms

Sinusitis usually occurs after an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold. If you have a persistent cold and develop the symptoms below, you may have sinusitis.

Symptoms of sinusitis include:

  • a green or yellow discharge from your nose

  • a blocked nose

  • pain and tenderness around your cheeks, eyes or forehead

  • a sinus headache

  • a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or more

  • toothache

  • a reduced sense of smell

  • bad breath (halitosis)

Children with sinusitis may be irritable, breathe through their mouth, and have difficulty feeding. Their speech may also sound nasal (as though they have a stuffy cold).

The symptoms of sinusitis often clear up within a few weeks (acute sinusitis), although occasionally they can last three months or more (chronic sinusitis).

If you are currently suffering with a cold, sneezing, coughing or sinusitis, you are not alone! I have done all the research for you! So here are HealthCare4all’s recommended winter products to help.

Wash out your sinuses!

Image result for neilmedThe First product is called NeilMed sinus rinse, and comes in an ideal starter pack for under £10

NeilMed #Sinus Rinse is a #natural #soothing saline #nasal wash. A large volume, low positive pressure nasal wash is the most effective way to irrigate the nose based on current medical studies. Daily rinsing is safe and will keep your nasal passages clean, healthy and open.

What does it help with?

  • Nasal Allergies, dryness and Hay Fever

  • Sinus Pressure & Nasal Stuffiness

  • Nasal Symptoms from Flu & Cold

  • Nasal Irritation from House Dust, Fumes, Animal Dander, Grass, Pollen, Smoke etc

  • Post Nasal Drip and Nasal Congestion

Its very easy to use but have a look at the video below to make sure you use it correctly! I personally use it and absolutely love that afterwards my sinuses feel so much clearer and pain free!

Image result for revidoxBoost your Immune System!

The Second product we recommend is one that we mentioned a few months ago. At this time of year we suggest that people should do all they can to help boost their immune system to fight off any flu, cold or virus that’s going round. One way is to take a supplement, and we recommend Revidox, as its the only Supplement that’s efficacy supported by clinical trials.

Revidox is an anti-aging Natural supplement that not only keep healthy cells healthy but also rapidly replaces your dead cells too.

REVIDOX+ Helps maintain healthy hair, skin and nails as well as adding to normal cognitive function. It is a natural product which is made from ingredients found in fruits, berries, grapes and of course red wine.

HealthCare4All believe that £34.99 for 60 capsules is a worthwhile investment into your health this hay fever season.

Give Sinus pain the Elbow!

The third product is The Original Qu-Chi Hayfever Band ®. It has been our top selling product for Hay fever for nearly 8 years, also has been the number one best seller on Amazon.co.uk for allergy products for FIVE years!

The reason I am mentioning it today is because we have had so many emails from customers telling us it really helped to clear their sinuses whilst they wore it. Customers have also told us its helped give them relief of symptoms from allergies to pets too. We love that its a drug free, natural product & has no side effects like drowsiness that you may get with antihistamines.

We think combined with the Neilmed Sinus Rinse, not only do your Sinuses have hay fever season covered but you will have all year round protection!

Its available from Healthcare4All for £12.95

 If you know anyone suffering from Lice, Super Lice or Nits this post is for them!

#HealthCare4All are always searching the globe for the BEST products that are not going to break the bank! We have found an amazing gadget that will rid your children of LICE AND NITS and we have been ITCHING to tell you about it! Its called the LiceTec V Comb. #HealthCare4All are also the UK Distributors!

 

As featured on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ last week!

Why is it so amazing?

Unlike most products on the market today, the LiceTec Comb removes both Lice AND Nits. It is completely safe & extremely easy to use. It works by vacuum, so there is no risk of an electrical current to the user or the patient.

You can actually see the lice and nits getting sucked into the illuminated filter so you KNOW that you have caught them! This eliminates the guesswork you have from other products. It even works on Lice that are resistant to chemicals which is becoming a worldwide problem called SUPER LICE!

It can be used as many times as necessary which a major reason we love it so much. The alternative is using lotions that cost £10- £15 and can only be used once! The LiceTec V comb is only £36.95 from HealthCare4All!

What we also love about the LiceTec V-comb is that after it has sucked the lice and nits into the filter, you simply put the cap on and throw the filter away and you KNOW they have been safely disposed of!

As it is a registered medical device, it is marked with CE & FDA approved to give you peace of mind that you have a quality product!

We like to test our internationally sourced products and one thing that we suggest is that Technique on how to use the Comb is important. So please take a look at the instruction videos below.

If you want to read more about Super Lice,  there has been so much in the press recently. I have listed a few of them below FYI

If you Or your child have Asthma then you NEED to read this! #HealthCare4All

What is the Best Pulse Oximeter?

If you or your child suffer from asthma, you will know how important it is to take reliable and accurate oxygen level readings.

This week i want to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. One of the reasons we love it so much is that it will give you peace of mind without the need to visit your doctor.

We know there are cheaper models available, however for us, the most important thing to note when searching for Oximeters is Accuracy and Reliability! This is why if someone asks me at my pharmacy or at HealthCare4All for my opinion, these are the BEST finger pulse oximeter to buy.

What are Pulse Oximeters?

 Pulse oximeters help you monitor the amount of oxygen carried  around your body. Its completely painless and all you have to do is attach it to a fingertip for a few moments to get a reading.

An oxygen level of greater than 95% is generally considered to be a normal oxygen level and a level of 92% or less suggests low blood oxygen.

what is the best Pulse Oximeter
Heal Force 100i pulse oximeter from HealthCare4All

In addition to oxygen level it also tells you your pulse rate. For adults a normal pulse rate is 60-80 beats per minute, however your heart rate would be expected to increase with exercise and and oxygen saturation may slightly decrease (it should still remain at 90% or greater though).

I wanted to find one that is easy to use at home for at-home patient monitoring. For people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities. It can also assist your doctor in deciding if your COPD is getting worse.

For People with COPD, asthma and other lung diseases who want to be active, the quality of the oximeter they use is important. Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.

There are 2 Pulse oximeters I recommend. The first one is Heal Force Prince 100F High-Resolution Handheld Pulse Oximeter.  This is an amazing Pulse Oximeter but is on the pricey side at £189.00 (inc VAT), however if you want accuracy and dependability this is the one i would recommend.

The Prince 100F handheld pulse oximeter is a portable device for monitoring SpO2, pulse rate and pulse strength. It is robust, fast and reliable, so the device is suitable for use both at home and in a hospital environment.

The best Pulse Oximeter
The Heal Force 100f Pulse Oximeter from HealthCare4All

It is an upgraded model of the 100E, the main differences being as follows:
High-resolution LCD dot-matrix display – for graphical display of results
New version featuring COLOUR display

70 hours of data storage

Why we love the Heal Force Prince

The reason we love the Heal force prince is because not only does it work straight out of the box, it can be used for both adults and children! There are cheaper models on the market, however, with Oximeters it is imperative the readings are accurate otherwise the product is pointless.  The Heal Force Princes readings are Very accurate and reliable and will give you peace of mind!

In order to use it for children or infants you simply attach a probe and then it will work for all ages! Allow me to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port. Its very similar to the 100f however is £119.99 (inc VAT), so thats £70 CHEAPER and a fantastic bit of kit. what is the best Pulse Oximeter

It comes with preset alarm limits (these cannot be adjusted by user), and also When the external paediatric or infant sensors are connected, the finger clip sensor will be deactivated and the alarm limits change automatically! Please see below for the limits*

HealthCare4All are not the only ones that love it. Its fans include GP Surgeries and health clinics too as its so versitile, and its readings are accurate and reliable. All you need to do to use it is put your finger in it! It automatically switches on.

Our verified customer reviews have been amazing, here are just a couple of examples…

  • The Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port is in a class of its own. I was initially taken aback by the above average cost of this device. I have used several other much cheaper brands over the last several years with mostly disappointing results (inconsistent results, early breakdowns etc.). However having used this device most days for a few months I can testify to its reliability, excellent build quality and consistently accurate results. On every occasion it has held up..

  • Excellent product, we bought this to monitor our two year olds oxygen levels as he suffers with asthma and we were having to continually rush him to the doctors to be checked. At first we tried a cheaper monitor which was not accurate and hard to obtain a reading. We ordered this one and it has given an accurate reading every time (without either of the children’s probes being needed). Well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Fantastic product which will give us peace of mind.

To sum up…

  • The Prince 100I fingertip pulse oximeter is suitable for adult use using the integrated finger clip probe and infant or paediatric use via a wired probe (3 versions: infant bandage-style probes, paediatric clip sensors, and paediatric fingerstall probes available as optional accessories from stock).

  • The 100I oximeter is suitable for use in the home, medical institutions and care homes.

  • Its is ridiculously easy to use due to the lack of operational buttons.

  • Simply insert your finger into the oximeter and the unit powers on, takes a reading and then turns off 8 seconds after the finger is removed.

  • It is Light, small in size and easy to carry in a pouch and lanyard hanging cord which is included.

  • It has a Bright colour OLED screen which is very easy to see.

Virulite from HealthCare4All – NHS Recommended, CE & FDA approved for the treatment of cold sores

Are you searching for the best cold sore remedies? Well, I have done the research for you!

This week I want to talk about an amazing NHS Recommended, CE & FDA approved product we found for the treatment of cold sores. Its called the VIRULITE COLD SORE MACHINE and as soon as I listed it on amazon the 5 out of 5 reviews started rolling in!

What is it Virulite and how does it work?

 

 

1. Original Cold Sore machine made by Virulite

2. VCS1 Stops Cold Sores in their tracks when used at the first sign

3. Helps your skin to defend against the attack of the Herpes simplex virus

4. Uses Passive light invisible to the naked eye. Stimulating your body into reacting to the Cold Sore virus

5. Proven to work over and over. In some cases, the use of this machine prevents future attacks

6. Its developers claim that it  heals cold sores twice as quickly as using an antiviral cream.

7. Virulite is thought to increase the immune response to the virus

Why we like The Virulite Cold Sore Machine so much!

It is incredibly reliable and lasts for years. The only maintenance required is an occasional battery change.

At my pharmacy I see a lot of customers that are suffering with Cold sores and they get very frustrated with the current treatment options such as aciclovir (Zovirax) cream. The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.

Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.

Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.

The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £79.99 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.

 

 

How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine

The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.

A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.

Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.

The Evidence

Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.

A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.

The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.

The Reviews

The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,

Every year I used to dread February as I knew I would get a cold sore. Obviously like most cold sore sufferers you try everything under the sun, excuse the pun. I stumbled across this product by the usual “cold sore cures” via google. So decided to give it a go; February has come and gone and I had 1 potential flare up which I immediately “attacked” with the Virulite, I thought that it was a coincidence\luck when it didn’t flare up at all. I was absolutely chuffed. I felt a tingling again (march 2010) and a tiny blister appeared – done the Virulite and within 1 day it’s gone. BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU SUFFER FROM COLD SORES – it’s the best thing I’ve used. Pain free, no mess easy to use. Brilliant Cold Sore Machine

Are You Suffering With Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) ?

It’s still winter and the weather here in the UK is predictably miserable, especially the past couple of weeks! Despite the nights getting slowly lighter, there’s still a way to go until the warm, sunny weather of spring. Yes, it’s hardly surprising that some of us suffer from a winter-associated condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

As the NHS informs, this “winter depression” comes and goes in a seasonal pattern, with symptoms tending to be more apparent and severe during the winter.

The symptoms associated with this seasonal disorder include a persistent low mood, being void of interest or pleasure in everyday activities, moodiness, feeling of guilt, worthlessness and despair, weight gain and craving carbohydrates, feeling reluctant to get out of bed in the morning and sleeping for longer, as well as feelings of lethargy and being tired during the day.

Whilst not fully understood, the causes of SAD are linked to a reduction in sunlight during winter, which can prevent a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus from working properly that has been linked to affecting the production of melatonin and serotonin hormones in the brain.

As the NHS advises if you are suffering from the symptoms associated with SAD you should consider seeing your GP. Your doctor will assess your mental health and ask questions related to your lifestyle, mood, sleeping patterns, eating habits, and other elements that may be affecting your mood.

The NHS lists several treatments for SAD, including making changes to lifestyle, such as exercising regularly, going for counselling, taking antidepressant medication, and light therapy.

SAD Lamps

The theory behind SAD lamps, is that the white light produced by the lamp “effectively replicates sunshine.” By replicating the sun’s rays, users of sad light therapy can find they have a positive response when using SAD light boxes.

When asked which SAD lamp I recommend I always suggest the Beurer TL30 if you are traveling or the ‘all singing and dancing’ Medisana LSC.

Lets take a closer look at both of these…

Are You Suffering From Winter Flu?

HealthCare4All has you covered for the Winter Flu. Our essential Top 3 products to keep your Sinuses clear and pain free!

NHS bosses are warning we should be braced for a bad flu season. They are basing this on the fact that Australia and New Zealand, have just gone through their winters and this is a good indicator its on its way here!

How bad has it been in Australia and New Zealand?

Like the UK, the past few winters have been fairly quiet but this year they had their worst flu season for a number of years.  Figures suggest that  there was nearly double the number of cases of flu than the average over the past five winters.

Reports have emerged of hospitals struggling, which is why NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens raised the alarm in a speech on Tuesday.

Last year, the NHS went through its worst winter in a generation. And already hospital bosses have warned this winter could be worse given long waiting times and bed shortages over the summer.

Mr Stevens is concerned flu could tip the health service over the edge as well as posing a threat to vulnerable groups, such as the elderly.

What Symptoms Should We Expect?

The symptoms include a high temperature, tiredness, weakness, general aches and pains and a dry, chesty cough.

High-risk groups, such older people, pregnant women and those who have long-term medical conditions or a weakened immune system, are at risk of complications.

The most common of which are chest infections.

How do I get the vaccine?

You can get the flu jab free on the NHS if you are aged over 65, pregnant or have an underlying health condition which puts you at risk of serious complications from flu.

Children aged six months to two years at risk of flu are also entitled to a free flu jab.

A flu nasal spray is available free to three-year-olds and some children at primary school.

Front-line health and social care workers are also eligible to receive the flu vaccine.

GP surgeries will be able to give the jab and some local pharmacies may be able to as well.

Is there a way I can get the jab if I’m not eligible?

If you want to protect yourself against flu and you’re not in one of the groups above, you can buy the flu jab from high street pharmacies.

Very few people are unable to have the jab, but you should avoid it if you have had a serious allergic reaction to it before.

If I had the flu jab last year, do I need it again?

Flu strains often change and so protection given by the flu vaccine gradually decreases over time.

That’s why new flu jabs are produced each year and why vulnerable adults and children are advised to have it every year too.

What is sinusitis?


Sinusitis is a common condition in which the lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed. It’s usually caused by a viral infection and often improves within two or three weeks.

The sinuses are small, air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead.

The mucus produced by your sinuses usually drains into your nose through small channels. In sinusitis, these channels become blocked because the sinus linings are inflamed (swollen).

Signs and symptoms

Sinusitis usually occurs after an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold. If you have a persistent cold and develop the symptoms below, you may have sinusitis.

Symptoms of sinusitis include:

a green or yellow discharge from your nose
a blocked nose
pain and tenderness around your cheeks, eyes or forehead
a sinus headache
a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or more
toothache
a reduced sense of smell
bad breath (halitosis)
Children with sinusitis may be irritable, breathe through their mouth, and have difficulty feeding. Their speech may also sound nasal (as though they have a stuffy cold).

The symptoms of sinusitis often clear up within a few weeks (acute sinusitis), although occasionally they can last three months or more (chronic sinusitis).

If you are currently suffering with a cold, sneezing, coughing or sinusitis, you are not alone! I have done all the research for you! So here are HealthCare4all’s recommended winter products to help.

Wash out your sinuses!

NeilMed from HealthCare4All

The first product is called NeilMed sinus rinse, and comes in an ideal starter pack for under £10

NeilMed Sinus Rinse is a #natural soothing saline nasal wash. A large volume, low positive pressure nasal wash is the most effective way to irrigate the nose based on current medical studies. Daily rinsing is safe and will keep your nasal passages clean, healthy and open.

What does it help with?

Nasal Allergies, dryness and Hay Fever
Sinus Pressure & Nasal Stuffiness
Nasal Symptoms from Flu & Cold
Nasal Irritation from House Dust, Fumes, Animal Dander, Grass, Pollen, Smoke etc
Post Nasal Drip and Nasal Congestion
Its very easy to use but have a look at the video below to make sure you use it correctly! I personally use it and absolutely love that afterwards my sinuses feel so much clearer and pain free!

Boost your Immune System!


The Second product we recommend is one that we mentioned last week. At this time of year we suggest that people should do all they can to help boost their immune system to fight off any flu, cold or virus that’s going round. One way is to take a supplement, and we recommend Revidox, as its the only Supplement that’s efficacy supported by clinical trials.

Revidox is an anti-aging Natural supplement that not only keep healthy cells healthy but also rapidly replaces your dead cells too.

REVIDOX+ Helps maintain healthy hair, skin and nails as well as adding to normal cognitive function. It is a natural product which is made from ingredients found in fruits, berries, grapes and of course red wine.

HealthCare4All believe that £34.99 for 60 capsules is a worthwhile investment into your health this Winter.

Give Sinus pain the Elbow!


The third product is The Qu-Chi Hayfever Band ®. It has been our top selling product for Hay fever for 10 years, also has been the number one best seller on Amazon.co.uk for allergy products for five years!

The reason I am mentioning it today is because we have had so many emails from customers telling us it really helped to clear their sinuses whilst they wore it. Customers have also told us its helped give them relief of symptoms from allergies to pets too. We love that its a drug free, natural product & has no side effects like drowsiness that you may get with antihistamines.

 

We think combined with the Neilmed Sinus Rinse, not only do your Sinuses have winter covered but you will have all year round protection!

Its available from Healthcare4All for £12.95

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year from HealthCare4All

Welcome to this weeks blog post! Firstly, all of us at HealthCare4All would like to wish you a very happy and healthy new year!

2017 has been an amazing year for us, becoming the UK distributor for so many brilliant products, our ebay and amazon feedback has been outstanding and we also launched our new website!

I thought it might be a good time to write about 3 of my favourite and best selling products this week. So here they are!!

 1) REVIDOX

At this time of year people are talking about Flu jabs and nasty colds that leave them coughing, sneezing and generally feeling rubbish. Its a great idea to take a supplement that will Boost your immune system to help fight off illness and colds.

My first product that is extremely popular in Europe and especially Spain, but is new to the UK is called Revidox and its the only anti-aging product and immune system booster whose efficacy is supported by clinically trials that showed results in 60 days!

There is a lot of hype surrounding Revidox, so before I recommend it I needed to find out if  the claim is justified?

So what is Revidox?

Image result for Revidox PLUS Healthy Skin Food Supplement

Revidox is an anti-aging supplement that not only keep healthy cells healthy but also rapidly replaces your dead cells too. At this time of year, when there are all kinds of bugs and flu viruses going round its a great idea to take a supplement that will Boost your immune system to help fight off illness and colds.

REVIDOX+ Helps maintain healthy hair, skin and nails as well as adding to normal cognitive function.

It is a natural product with which is made from ingredients found in fruits, berries, grapes and of course red wine.

45 Kilos of Grapes in Revidox+

Revidox+(RRP £34.99 for 60days) is a NEW ‘beauty from within’ supplement containing all-natural ingredients including STILVID® – a 100% bio-active and patented form of Resveratrol, derived from the skin of grapes(2).

How does Revidox work?

Over twenty years ago a scientific study which became known as the “French paradox” showed why the French, who eat unhealthy amounts of fatty foods have the lowest rate of heart disease and related illness in the western world. The answer was found in the red wine they were drinking, to be exact, in the resveratrol in the red wine. Revidox contains STILVID®which is a new patented form of Resveratrol derived from the skin of grapes. It somehow (scientists are still working on this!) inhibits bacteriological infections that wear down the immune system and this is why so many consumers ‘feel’ much better afterwards.

It up regulates the SIRT 1 Gene and slows down cellular aging and helps maintains healthy skin.

Revidox contains the equivalent of 40 glasses of red wine! There is no need to drink 40 glasses of wine a day when you get all these benefits from a single pill and you cannot take too much of it. the more you take the greater the benefits.

Clinical trials have shown that there seems to be a correlation between Revidox and the anti-ageing process. This correlation has been enough to cause a surge in demand for the product!

45 Kilos of Grapes in Revidox+

What is in it?

Revidox+ contains a vital mix of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that work in harmony to maintain healthy skin and address the signs of ageing, including:

  • Pomegranate extract: rich in Ellagic Acid, polyphenols and Punicalagin

  • Vitamin C*: a powerful antioxidant proven to promote healthy collagen formation (responsible for our skin’s elasticity) to help encourage firm, plump skin

  • Selenium*: a vital mineral proven to shield cells from free radical damage whilst helping to maintain healthy hair and nails

  • Vitamin B2*: assists with maintaining healthy skin and energy levels. Like Selenium it helps protect cells from oxidative stress

  • Zinc: supports healthy hair, skin and nails, as well as supporting natural immune function

How often should I take Revidox+?

Take 1 capsule a day with a meal. We recommend including Revidox+ as a healthy habit from age 30.

*Dietary supplements are not intended to replace a healthy, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Cautions: Not for children under 12, or for pregnant or breast-feeding women.

My second product is The Virulite cold sore machine!

 

Virulite is an amazing NHS Recommended, CE & FDA approved product we found for the treatment of cold sores. Its called the VIRULITE COLD SORE MACHINE and as soon as I listed it on amazon the 5 out of 5 reviews started rolling in!

What is it Virulite and how does it work?

  • Original Cold Sore machine made by Virulite
  • VCS1 Stops Cold Sores in their tracks when used at the first sign
  • Helps your skin to defend against the attack of the Herpes simplex virus
  • Uses Passive light invisible to the naked eye. Stimulating your body into reacting to the Cold Sore virus
  • Proven to work over and over. In some cases, the use of this machine prevents future attacks
  • Its developers claim that it  heals cold sores twice as quickly as using an antiviral cream.
  • Virulite is thought to increase the immune response to the virus

Why we like The Virulite Cold Sore Machine so much!

It is incredibly reliable and lasts for years. The only maintenance required is an occasional battery change.

At my pharmacy I see a lot of customers that are suffering with Cold sores and they get very frustrated with the current treatment options such as aciclovir (Zovirax) cream. The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.

Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.

Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.

The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £79.99 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.

 

How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine

The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.

A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.

Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.

The Evidence

Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.

A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.

The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.

The Reviews

The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,

Every year I used to dread February as I knew I would get a cold sore. Obviously like most cold sore sufferers you try everything under the sun, excuse the pun. I stumbled across this product by the usual “cold sore cures” via google. So decided to give it a go; February has come and gone and I had 1 potential flare up which I immediately “attacked” with the Virulite, I thought that it was a coincidence\luck when it didn’t flare up at all. I was absolutely chuffed. I felt a tingling again (march 2010) and a tiny blister appeared – done the Virulite and within 1 day it’s gone. BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU SUFFER FROM COLD SORES – it’s the best thing I’ve used. Pain free, no mess easy to use. Brilliant Cold Sore Machine

Rite Aid Breast Discs

Of course they are safe and extremely easy to use, however they are unlike anything else in the market. They actually promote healing from underneath the pad, they are not just an absorbent or protective pad like existing products. As soon as they are applied there is INSTANT RELIEF of pain whilst simultaneously HEALING the cracked and sore nipple!
