This venture is the culmination of many factors. The biggest factor in development of all these products was to relieve personal pain. I suffer from a rare disease called Trigeminal Neuralgia. Commonly coined “the suicide disease” as it delivers intense facial nerve pain. There is no known cure. There are different variations of the disease which effects the facial nerves causing them to fire pain signals to the brain which can be felt as burning, stabbing, shock, teeth pulling, kick in the face, bone crushing type pain. 1 to all nerves can be affected. When triggered from known sources such as touch, wind, barometric pressure, stress etc attacks can last from minutes to severe cases like mine which cause constant chronic pain. My specific diagnosis which went undiagnosed since young adulthood as it was sporadic. About 5 years ago some small dental fillings opened pandora box of pain starting unrelenting chronic pain. I was diagnosed with Bilateral Type 2 TN accompanied by Occipital Neuralgia which most of you know as Chronic Migraine. So this means both sides of my face are constantly in pain with a lovely headache 24hrs a day.
Of course I spent much time trying to find help from the medical system and have tried everything from prescription meds to 2 brain stem operations called Microvascular Decompression. I did get some relief from the surgery on the left side and I can go outside without a face wrap but no matter what I still have daily pain.
I decided to take matters into my own hands and developed these products to initially help myself and then others wanting non-prescription natural pain relief that works. Its a difficult thing to really understand unless you actually know pain.
My creams are formulated to be light weight for daily facial and all over use.
The Chill Stick was formulated for my mother in law who suffers from Osteoarthritis in her back and knees. While waiting for her first knee replacement she was down to bone on bone and was taking Prescription medication that was reducing her kidney function severely. As she also suffers from high blood pressure she is limited to using topical anti-inflammatories. We tried everything but unfortunately not even prescription strength cut through the pain. I set to work. It took over 2 years to perfect what is now the Chill Stick but 4 years on a wait list for knee replacement is nothing new to us Canadians. Now my mother in law only uses topicals and is off the prescription meds and is no longer throwing money down the drain on products that don’t live up to their claims.
