I will have to look for that other Dr tomorrow but anyone who says there is no dependency without doing clinical trials is only doing this for the money. Praying on people with chronic illnesses is the same as selling snake oil. I have suffered since the 1980's & in 2000 begged a Dr for something, she prescribed the hydroxyzine which is a lifesaver, natural methods do not work for me. My arms are full of scars to the point people asking what is the white spots on arms. The article is all advertising, that's how he gets people to his product. I posted it because he says all these things with no clinical trials, so he is assuming or making up results which is sickening to desperate people. I also use Aspercream per primary, it has lidocaine in it. It's for pain which I always thought was the culprit. Also Triamcinolone cream which is free thru my insurance. Ice, and other products do not work, my itching is severe. I take ibuprofen for all my pain, and any other pain I learned to ignore it like the fibro diagnosed in1984. Because of all the diseases being diagnosed, each next one was worse than the previous.4 rare, at least 5 autoimmunes, however on their site says fibro not an autoimmune. Every Dr I saw said they believed me and only took one yr to get diagnose thru rheum.
