Relieve Your Achilles Pain and Improve Blood Flow for Lasting Relief

This Week I want to introduce you to an amazing at home massage machine that relieves problems with the Achillies Tendon!

FM 200 Achillomed®: Relieves problems with the Achilles tendon

The Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the human body. However, overstressing and incorrect stressing may result in problems in this area.

This is Beurer’s new FM 200 Achillomed®, which can relieve such problems with the Achilles tendon with a soothing massage.

Relieve Your Achilles Pain and Improve Blood Flow for Lasting Relief

Achilles pain, whether due to a tear, rupture, overuse or tendonitis can be mild at best but excruciating at worst. Your Achilles tendon is the largest in the body, stretching from the bones of your heel up to your calf muscles. It is the reason you can walk and when it is injured or inflamed, something as simple as getting from A to B can be impossible.

If you have injured your Achilles tendon or have regular flare ups due to an unknown reason, regular massage can provide the relief you need and prevent future issues.

Massage Therapy When You Need It Most

Using the Beurer FM-200 Achillomed home massager, you can get regular, effective Achilles massage treatment at home. A doctor’s referral to a suitable physiotherapist can leave you in pain for weeks or even months on end until you are seen and finding a private physiotherapist who can help with this specific problem is very difficult; there are so few out there.

When you are suffering with Achilles pain you need treatment as soon as possible. Pain killers only work to mask the problem, whilst a massage using the Beurer FM-200 Achillomed can give you long term relief. Massage encourages blood flow to the affected area, this is what helps heal the damaged tendon leaving you feeling relaxed and with a noticeable reduction in pain.

Benefit from improved circulation with the Beurer Achillomed®. It has a soothing effect and reduces complaints with the Achilles tendon thanks to 6 rotating massage heads and 2 speed settings.

FM 200 – effective use at home

Lots of athletes will already have had negative experiences with the Achilles tendon. Overstressing, insufficient regeneration periods or incorrect footwear can turn this area into a sore spot. In addition to adjusting training intensity and equipment, massage treatments can also provide relief.

You can now treat Achilles tendon problems conveniently at home with the FM 200 Achillomed®. The device can be individually adjusted using a footrest with height and width adjustment. Six rotating massage heads, two massage speeds and two massage directions allow further adjustments to be made for different requirements. An LED operating display gives the user a quick overview during treatment. The massage heads are removable and can therefore be cleaned easily and hygienically.

This is why HealthCare4All think that the Vitalograph 6300 Micro is the best Spirometer

what is the best copd monitor

 This week I want to introduce you to an amazing product that is generally used by your Doctor to assess your lung function. The Spirometer I have chosen is aimed at professionals/Clinics so maybe a little OTT for home monitoring.

However, as you know me I wanted to find one that is the best and full of TECH!

What is a Spirometer?

What is the Best Spirometer?

 

A spirometer is a device used by your doctor to assess lung function. Spirometry, the evaluation of lung function with a spirometer, is one of the simplest, most common pulmonary function tests and may be necessary for any of the following reasons:

  • To determine how well the lungs receive, hold, and utilize air

  • To monitor a lung disease

  • To monitor the effectiveness of treatment

  • To determine the severity of a lung disease

  • To determine whether the lung disease is restrictive (decreased airflow) or obstructive (disruption of airflow)

After taking a deep breath, you forcefully breathe out into the spirometer as completely and forcefully as possible. The spirometer measures both the amount of air expelled and how quickly the air was expelled from the lungs. The measurements are recorded by the spirometer.

The normal, healthy values measured by the spirometer for the amount of air exhaled vary from person to person. Your results are compared to the average expected in someone of the same age, height, sex, and race, according to NHLBI. However, if the values fall below 85 percent of the average, it may indicate a lung disease or other airflow obstruction. If you have abnormal spirometer measurements, you may be referred for other lung tests to establish a diagnosis.

 

Vitalograph Micro Spirometer Model 6300 – 63310

Micro Touch Screen Spirometer
The Ultimate Low Cost, High Performance Spirometer
The Vitalograph Micro™ is a high quality spirometer at a great value price from the leading provider of spirometry devices to general healthcare and occupational health markets. This reliable, easy-to-use entry-level model offers all required functionalities in a full feature spirometer that is unrivaled in its price range.

The micro features the same high performance measuring technology used across the Vitalograph range and requires no user calibration. In contrast to turbine spirometers micro does not feature any sensitive moving parts, guaranteeing robustness and the highest possible measuring accuracy – even at very low or high flow rates. The running costs per measurement are low, as no expensive disposable sensors, turbines, spirettes and flow tubes are needed. Optimal hygienic operation is assured via Vitalograph Bacterial Viral Filters (BVF™).

The Micro is the ideal choice where fast accurate testing is required in environments where mobility is important.

The test results and curves on the micro are displayed on the colour touch screen and, if required, can be downloaded as a PDF for printing, filing and manual uploading to electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The new GLI spirometry predicted equations and Z-Scores are built in. Here is a link to the Vitalograph spirometer manual.

What Is The Best Home Blood Pressure Machine?

This Week I want to talk to you about Home Blood Pressure Machines. Which is the best one? When do I take my blood pressure, and how often?

Home blood pressure machines are an effective way for us to learn more about our blood pressure and keep a close eye on what’s an extremely important element of our health. Put simply, the higher your blood pressure is, the higher the risk is of developing health problems in the future.

Home blood pressure monitoring can give you a more accurate reading of your blood pressure, as the NHS informs in its blood pressure guide:

“Portable machines that measure your blood pressure at home or on the move can be a useful way of getting a more convenient and accurate reading.”

“This is because some people become anxious in medical clinics, which can cause the blood pressure to rise. This is a condition called ‘white coat hypertension.”

Portable blood pressure monitors are long established as being a convenient and effective way to monitor our blood pressure, but is there an optimum time of the day to use them?

Whilst there is no right or wrong time to take your blood pressure, there are a few factors you should consider in order to make the most out of your home blood pressure machine.

Avoid taking your blood pressure immediately after waking up

The Mayo Clinic advises to avoid measuring blood pressure immediately after you have woken up. This is due to the fact our blood pressure is typically at its lowest on waking and therefore will not provide a truly accurate reading.

The May Clinic also advices to avoid taking any medication before using the device. If you do exercise when you wake up, use the monitoring machine before you do any exercise for a more accurate reading.

Avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol before using the machine

Drinking tea, coffee and alcohol for at least half an hour before using the blood pressure monitor may result in you having a higher reading. It is therefore advised to refrain from drinking these substances prior to using the device.

A full bladder can also affect your blood pressure, so always go to the toilet before you check your blood pressure.

Measure your blood pressure at different times of the day

You might be tempted to take your blood pressure reading at the same time each day. However, measuring at different times will give you a more accurate assessment of your blood pressure overall. Taking the reading at different times will factor in different elements that can affect our blood pressure, such as hormone changes, stress and activity level.

Ormon M6 Comfort IT Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

One of my favourite blood pressure machines is the Omron M6. If you are on the lookout for a quality blood pressure monitor for home blood pressure checks, the Ormon M6 Comfort IT Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is a quality device, designed to give accurate assessments of blood pressure.

 

The machine connects to Bi-Link, so an internet connection is required, where users have free access to Health Management. The Ormon M6 Comfort IT Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor has advanced averaging, irregular heartbeat detection, a morning hypertension tracker, as well as an easy blood pressure colour indicator.

You can buy the Ormon M6 Comfort IT Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor from Healthcare4all here for only  £72.98

However, my new favourite is the OMRON EVOLV.

New All-in-one, connected, upper arm blood pressure monitor. No tubes, no wires, simply accurate. It has unique features which makes it an unmatched blood pressure monitor including OMRON’s Intel Wrap Cuff – £119.99

  • Wrap it on. Press a button. Take control of your cardiovascular health

Technology for consistent accurate results. OMRON blood pressure monitors have proven reliability and accuracy under rigorous testing procedures by major health organizations.( 1. Bilo G et al. Hypertens Res 2017. 40(6): 573-580.)

There are many blood pressure machines available, these are two of my favourites. Or to view all the blood pressure monitors we have available visit our blood pressure page.

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.

  • There are no chemicals or allergy causing agents making this ideal for kids with sensitivities

  • There is no need to use shampoo or conditioners as the device is directly applied to dry hair

HealthCare4All recommend the best products to Soothe your Sore, Itchy eyes

This week I want to talk to you about a very common eye condition called Blepharitis. It can develop at any age and the main symptoms are that the edges of your eyelids become red and swollen. In most cases both eyes are affected, but often one eye is worse and generally its worse in the morning. Blepharitis isn’t contagious. Also, if you get seasonal allergies you could be suffering with red, itchy swollen and dry eyes. The products below would be perfect for you!  I will write a post about seasonal allergies later this year with loads of advice and amazing products to give you some relief.

 

 

 

 

What are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?

It can develop at any age and symptoms include

  • crusting, swelling and redness of the eyelids

  • Dry eyes that have a gritty feeling and burning sensation

  • Light sensitivity and blurred vision

  • styes (an infection at the root of an eyelash) on the eyelid

  •  small ulcers on the eyelids

  • crusty eyelashes that stick together

  • uncomfortable to wear contact lenses

How to treat Blepharitis

Cleaning your eyelids to remove the crusts the eyelid margins and unblock the eyelid glands. To begin with you may need to clean your eyelids twice a day. You can do this by Using a warm compress – to make the oil produced by the glands around your eyes more runny.  Gently massaging your eyelids – to push the oils out of the glands. Cleaning your eyelids – to wipe away any excess oil and remove any crusts, bacteria, dust or grime that might have built up.

Unfortunately it is a long term condition that usually can not be cured so its a case of managing it. Even after the symptoms have gone it is a good idea to clean your eyelids at least a couple of times a week to reduce the chances of it recurring.  It is also suggested that daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and prevent permanent scarring of the eyelid margins.

More severe cases may require antibiotics that are either applied to the eye or eyelid directly, or taken as tablets.

 So what products do HealthCare4All recommend for Blepharitis?

Without proper eyelid hygiene, conditions resulting in inflammation of the eyelids (such as blepharitis) and dry eyes may develop. Removing oil and debris from the eyelids with Ocusoft Lid Scrub, and, depending on the severity of the condition, possibly employing the use of antibiotics or antibacterial cleansers may help prevent or drastically reduce inflammation.

How to use Ocusoft Lid Scrub Original Pre-Moistened Pads
First, wash and clean hands. Then, fold the OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Pre-Moistened Pad over the index finger, close your eye and gently scrub the eyelid using side-to-side strokes for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with water. Use the opposite side of the same pad and repeat procedure with other eyelid.

When to get medical advice

See your high-street optician (optometrist) if you have persistent symptoms of blepharitis that aren’t being controlled by simple eyelid hygiene measures.

They can examine you to check if the problem is caused by an underlying condition, or may refer you to an eye specialist.

Contact your optometrist or GP immediately if you have any severe symptoms. If this isn’t possible, visit your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department.

Keep Warm & Happy this Winter with HealthCare4All

First of all, let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a very healthy and happy 2019!!  Even though the days are starting to get slightly longer now, unfortunately its still dark in the mornings and by 4pm,  also the weather here in the UK is predictably going to get worse!

The Met Office issues snow warning as ‘Beast from the East’ returns this month. A SPELL of bitterly cold weather nicknamed the “Beast from the East” could impact Britain with snow and sub-zero temperatures by the end of January.

I suggest taking a look at

The Beurer mp70 paraffin wax bath

There’s a way to go until the warm, sunny weather of spring. 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…

My TOP 3 products from HealthCare4All #HappyNewYear

Welcome to my last blog of 2018! Firstly, all of us at HealthCare4All would like to wish you a very happy and healthy new year!

2018 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) My First favourite product 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?

 

 

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 £99.98 & 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

3) One of the most common questions I get asked at my pharmacy is what product is BEST & SAFE for instant relief of pain from cracked and sore nipples whilst breastfeeding!

I found an amazing product that is one of the BEST SELLING from Australia which is RECOMMENDED by maternity wards and midwives, called the RITE AID BREAST DISCS and Healthcare4all.co.uk have become the FIRST UK DISTRIBUTORS!

They are also ideal for us gentlemen that have sensitive nipples. I personally find that when I wear my football shirt or certain shirts they can really irritate my nipples. Solution is RITE AID!

So, what makes them so special?

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!

Another massive plus point is that they come with 12 PADS whereas other products like Medela only come with 4 pads for roughly the same price!

The feedback I have received is remarkable, just take a look at some of the amazing REVIEWS of course my wife swears by them!

RITE AID BREAST DISCS can save mothers who are about to stop breastfeeding due to pain and sores and as they come in packs of 12 rather than 4 will SAVE you money!

These breast discs are amazing, and have won the GOLD AWARD in Australia Mother & Baby Magazines ‘Most popular product for mum’.

They are available at healthcare4all for only £14.99 and we offer NEXT DAY DELIVERY!

What is the best Peak Flow monitor from HealthCare4All

This week I want to talk about a new range of products at HealthCare4All, called ‘Vitalograph‘.

So what is Peak Flow?

what is the best peak flow monitor
what is the best copd monitor

Very simply it is a lung function test to measure how fast you can exhale. You take a full breath in, then blow out as fast as you can into a small, hand-held plastic tube called a peak flow meter. The measurement taken is called your peak flow.

When is it used?

A GP or asthma nurse might use a peak flow test to help see how open your airways are – they often use this test when you first tell them you’re experiencing symptoms that might be asthma. Your GP or asthma nurse should do a peak flow test at every annual asthma review as part of their routine checks.

This test is also useful for monitoring your asthma using a peak flow diary alongside a symptom diary and your asthma action plan. Take a look at www.asthma.org.uk for some more information.

Peak flow readings will vary depending on your age, your height and whether you’re a man or a woman. This test shows how your individual lung function changes.

Although your peak flow reading may be different in the morning or at night, it’s the pattern your scores make that’s important, rather than one score on its own. Most people have a best peak flow reading so you’ll be able to see when your reading goes up and down.

Keeping track of your peak flow whilst monitoring your symptoms can help you spot when your asthma is getting worse and when you need to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) or get medical help.

Review for the Footner Exfoliating Socks

I have purchased this a few times and I must say I am a big fan. There is something so satisfying about all of your skin falling off your feet. Yes it is so hideous and disgusting and you will leave skin everywhere but man alive it is amazing. It leaves your skin feeling soo smooth! I have a couple really hard bits of my feet which are not returned to super smooth skin after using this but it certainly takes a good few layers off and softens it. I just go at those bits with a pumice stone and my feet are left looking beautiful!

Review for the Beurer FB50

This arrived the next day and i have to admit i was skeptical when my other half got it for me. Usually foot spas are too soft to do anything for my feet, because i have plantar faciatis. I was proven wrong when taking it out and gave it a go. The fact that the water is warmed and kept warmed long enough ( i do like a long foot soak and i usually sit with the hot kettle next to me to top up my bowl) was beyond expectations. Constant temperature was amazing. Then you add the vibrations and the bubbles and i was in heaven. Well impressed! Good piece of kit for tired and achy feet.

 As I mentioned earlier the Beurer FB50 is my absolute favourite, however I appreciate it is not cheap! So as an alternative our second best seller is the Medisasa FS885 Comfort spa. At £89.99 it is £16 cheaper and also an excellent product.

Medisana FS885 Comfort Foot Spa

3 in 1: bubble spa and vibration massage and red light
Water heating from 20°C to 48°C – user adjustable
Timer function for 20/30/40/50/60 minutes

Automatic red light and heat function
Massage rollers in the middle of the foot spa to massage the inner surfaces of the feet
Removable massage rollers in the sole of the feet
Ergonomically-arranged air bubble nozzles
Good heat insulation through double-walled casing
Intensive reflexology
Convenient size- suitable up to shoe size 46

Review for The Medisana FS885 Foot Spa..

 This foot spa is absolutely great, haven’t had a foot treatment like this ever. So relaxing, water stays warm, bubbles are terrific and vibration really feels lovely, AND, you can use it without water for a dry massage, both are a brilliant experience.

What is the best cold sore treatment?

Are you searching for the best cold sore remedies? Well, HealthCare4All has 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 £99.98 & 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
