Therapik Receives FDA Clearance, Gets Doctors Endorsement
The FDA confirmed the following: Therapik® is indicated for use to provide temporary bug bite relief, from the pain and itching resulting from insect stings and bites from bees, wasps and mosquitoes, by increasing localized blood flow.
Eco-friendly, as well as drug-free and mess-free, Therapik® uses directed heat to alleviate insect bite and sting pain and itching. In fact, Therapik®’s technology is based on a very simple, scientifically-proven principle. Most insect venom is thermolabile (sensitive to heat). Therapik®’s patented technology delivers heat in the specific temperature range necessary to neutralize the venom from over 20,000 different species of insects and sea creatures.
Clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of Therapik® for bug bite treatment, and the product has also received Seals of Approval from the North American Fishing Club and the National Home Gardening Club based on their independent field tests. On a January 7, 2011 segment of the TV show “The Doctors,” Therapik® was also tested. Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears endured a bee sting from integration specialist Chris Kleronomos, D.A.O.M. Within 20 seconds after applying Therapik® to the sting, the pain was gone.
Therapik® is a small, portable, hand-held, nine-volt battery-powered device. It measures approximately 3cm x 3cm x 10cm and weighs less than four ounces, including the battery. When used as instructed, Therapik® is safe for both adults and children. A simple, non-locking, finger or thumb-activated switch controls the release of heat. Users apply Therapik® to the bite or sting and hold it in place for 20 to 30 seconds, or for as long as it is comfortable. As the heat deactivates the venom and increases localized blood flow, there is a significant reduction in swelling, redness, pain and itching. Therapik® can be re-applied as often as necessary until relief is obtained.
The company has received hundreds of unsolicited testimonials from people who have used the product successfully for bug bite relief, during camping trips, while fishing and gardening, boating, during outdoor activities, and more. Here is one comment: “I am allergic to mosquito bites and they swell up between the size of a nickel and a quarter and they itch excessively. I had eight bites on one arm and I tried Therapik®. Within a couple of minutes, the itching was gone, the bite never swelled and the next day you couldn’t even tell where the bites had been,” writes Debbie Ertmer of Larsen, Wisconsin.
Therapik® has a one-year replacement guarantee under normal operating conditions. Therapik® retails for $12.95.
