The problem we solve: We would like you to help us help the 33 million people who suffer from toe nail fungus and other fungal foot infections. Fungal nails are psychologically depressing especially for fashion-minded women who have to hide their feet and toes because of embarrassing toe nails. Millions of people who have toe nail fungus for many years can lose their toe nails due to the fungal infection. Toe nail fungus is very difficult to treat and cure. The current OTC anti-fungal topical medications are notoriously ineffective. New oral prescription medications are extremely costly, have dangerous side effects and require treatment for one year. FUNGIcycle is not costly and has proved to be highly effective in a short period of time. We have already definitely helped many women and men. Our goal is to help as many of the 33 million fungal toe nail sufferers as we can.
About our solution: FUNGIcycle is scientifically formulated using natural botanical oils and skin active vitamins D,A and E. Our unique formulation uses three potent anti-fungal botanical oils - tea tree, oregano and thyme oils. They are formulated in a botanical oil/vitamin complex which provides two important benefits that contribute to FUNGIcycle’s effectiveness. First, all the botanical oils act synergistically to effectively absorb deep into the infected nail and surrounding dermal tissue. The anti-fungal agents in the tea tree, thyme and oregano oils are effectively delivered to the fungi and kill the fungi. The second benefit is that the botanical oil/vitamin complex reduces inflammation and promotes rapid healing. The results are seen clinically. The most common observation is that discoloration and brittleness is visibly improved within the first couple of weeks. By 2 or 3 months of daily application the nails are totally cleared of infection and have returned to normal appearance.Progress to date:
We have developed all natural skincare products including FUNGIcycle a 100% natural treatment for fungal foot infections. FUNGIcycle has proved to be especially successful at treating the most difficult of fungal foot infections - toe nail fungus (onchomycosis). We can say this because we have been field testing our FUNGIcycle in podiatrist and dermatology offices for over a year. These medical professionals have found that FUNGIcycle safely, rapidly and effectively treats toe nail fungus; even toe nail infections that have been troublesome for many years and refractory to standard anti-fungal creams and lotions.Our podiatrist colleagues are now routinely recommending FUNGIcycle to their patients and incorporate FUNGIcycle in their regimens for treating toe nail fungus. We are routinely selling FUNGIcycle to these practices and also sell directly to consumers on-line via our website www.vita-you.com. We also are selling FUNGIcycle in local independent pharmacies and organic markets. We have sold over 1500 units of FUNGIcycle to date.
