  • The One Herpes Treatment You Haven't Tried Yet The One Herpes Treatment You Haven't Tried Yet

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    If you are among the millions of people infected by the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1, also known as oral herpes or "cold sores," then you know that it's simply a burden you have to live with. Thus far, science has been unable to find a herpes cure breakthrough. If you're suffering from an outbreak, all you can do is treat the symptoms and hope it goes away quickly.

    Of course, that's often easier said than done. At the very least, the blisters caused by type 1 herpes are uncomfortable. If they're external, they're unsightly, hard to cover up, and likely to cause people to talk. Plus, of course, when you have an outbreak you suddenly have to be a lot more careful about what your mouth comes into contact with.

    Unfortunately, most traditional over-the-counter "cold sore" medications and herpes treatments really don't do much. Many are just there to help with herpes pain relief, while you wait for the outbreak to go away. However, today, there's a new option to heal herpes sores faster - the biggest revolution in herpes treatment to happen in years.

  • Wound Care Healing for Diabetics Wound Care Healing for Diabetics

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    Those suffering from diabetes face many challenges in their life, but perhaps none is worse than the way diabetes interferes with the body's natural healing processes. For many with diabetes, wounds fail to close properly, or may not even heal at all. This makes it easy for those wounds to become infected, turning a small problem into a huge threat.  

    For a diabetic, even tiny wounds like scrapes and cuts can turn into a life-threatening situation. Diabetic wounds are a major concern for those afflicted.

    We, at Lavior, have developed products with extracts from Inula Viscosa, the "King of Medicinal Plants," which speeds up the wound care healing process.

     

    Introducing Inula Viscosa And Its Traditional Wound Care Healing Properties

    While largely unheard-of outside of the Mediterranean, Inula Viscosa has long been prized in local traditional medicine for its outstanding wound care healing properties. Inula Viscosa is a naturally growing perennial shrub which can be found around Israel, Palestine, and surrounding areas.

    What makes Inula Viscosa so notable is the resin produced by its leaves in the fall and winter. This resin has been shown to have superior anti-microbial properties, and extracts of the resin are even more effective. Products made from this extract are anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal.  

    This makes it a perfect solution to the problem of diabetic wound care! Inula Viscosa extract can protect wounds from every source of infection, while reducing inflammation and encouraging natural healing. This speeds up each of the infected wound healing stages.

    A Scientific Solution To Diabetic Wound Care Healing

    D-CARE Natural Diabetic Wound Care Gel has been formulated specifically to meet the needs of diabetics, providing additional levels of protection for wounds that help prevent them from worsening. The proprietary Inula Viscosa extract is enhanced with a number of additional natural healing and moisturizing agents, making D-CARE one of the leading solutions for diabetic wound care healing.

    With years of scientific testing, and as an FDA-registered OTC drug, we can say that D-CARE:

    • Reduces swelling, and provides long-lasting pain relief
    • Promotes faster healing
    • Lowers the wound pH, to encourage wound healing
    • Softens scabs and stimulates blood circulation
    • Encourages faster skin repair and regeneration

    Better yet, D-CARE is a hypoallergenic, vegan-friendly, and cruelty-free wound healing cream. None of our products are ever tested on animals. You can improve your own health without hurting anything else!

  • Fighting the battle of diabetic wounds (and winning!) Fighting the battle of diabetic wounds (and winning!)

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion



    Diabetes is a serious life-long health condition that occurs when the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body can't use it properly. For those who suffer from diabetes and for countless others who are plagued by the discomfort, irritation and pain of diabetic wounds, there is hope. There is the promise of soothing, healing and yes, even winning the often endless, uphill battle of diabetic wounds. Of this we know for sure.

    Wound healing and especially diabetic wound healing, have long been the challenges of modern medicine. But more often than not, treatment with popular over the counter ointments and creams, are no longer tall tales or our grandmother's magic potions. Topical skincare treatments are now gaining the attention and respect of the medical community. Wound healing as a medical specialty and as a subject of medical research, finally has a seat at the table – and new soothing and healing alternatives are giving chronic sufferers… hope.  

    Your skin – your choice

    Diabetic foot wounds are a common complication for diabetics. Of the nearly 30 million people with diabetes in the U.S. alone, 15% will develop a foot ulcer at some point in their lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These numbers are astounding and are only on the rise each and every day.

    The more we understand how skin actually heals and how important skin revitalizing is in the journey towards improved skin health, those of us with diabetic wounds have a far better chance of healing. We can, essentially, soothe and improve and even 'repair' the toughest-to-heal diabetic wounds and yes, the choice is yours.

    Helping your skin to help itself

    It's a well-known fact that repairing the skin when it's injured or damaged, is the key to keeping our bodies intact. As part of our natural metabolism, once we are hurt or inflicted by a chronic illness, such as diabetes, our bodies work hard to get the healing process started. Cells are in motion, blood vessels ban together to fight infection – all of this to promote new skin growth and protect the infected areas.

    Our skin needs to continue "working" and regenerating and we are ultimately responsible for helping it to heal. Diabetic wounds affect our entire body, but the possibility of soothing and healing inflamed and infected areas, will help the overall healing process. At LAVIOR, we truly understand your skin's need… to heal. 

    Here, the healing begins

    LAVIOR offers diabetic wound sufferers a viable alternative to popular off the shelf remedies, with an advanced line of products that effectively heal diabetic wounds and ulcers. After years of market research, intensive product analysis and testing and a deep understanding of the make-up of diabetic wounds, LAVIOR has developed a line of skincare solutions to soothe and heal diabetic wounds and sores.

    Based on a unique combination of Inula Viscosa, deemed the "King of Medicinal Plants," LAVIOR skincare products feature anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties, to effectively soothe and heal damaged or irritated skin. What makes us so uniquely different from comparable skincare products, is that we actually grow and cultivate our own exclusive type of Inula Viscosa, the richest and most potent of this plant species. 

    LAVIOR's product line includes "D-Care" for the treatment of diabetic wounds and "Organic Moisturizer" to soothe dry and cracked skin, often the result of diabetic wounds, especially foot ulcers and bed sores. When applied directly to the wound, our products quickly penetrate the tissue and reduce inflammation, promoting wound healing and closure.

    In a word, LAVIOR effectively helps you – help your skin to heal, ultimately, helping you to fight, and we hope, 'win' the battle of diabetic wounds.

Many people are just waking up to the immense benefits that it can offer, especially when it comes to healing specific skin conditions. In fact, some are even labeling it as a super plant!

  • What Exactly is Inula Viscosa? What Exactly is Inula Viscosa?

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    What is Inula Viscosa? 

    The Inula Viscosa is quite a magical plant, which is why we (Lavior) use it in all of our skincare products. The products are suited for just about anybody, particularly diabetics, as they suffer from many skin issues that other people don’t need to worry about. A diabetic will usually suffer from wounds that get infected all too easily, and the aim of using Inula Viscosa in our skincare products is to heal the wounds much faster and prevent infection. But what exactly is the Inula Viscosa?

    This plant has been highly regarded for thousands of years as one of the most effective medicinal plants in Israel, although it is not commonly heard of anywhere else. Many people outside of Israel have not heard of this plant, and so do not know the magical benefits it can offer for skin health and wound healing. This plant can also be called a False Yellowhead, and it is known to support and protect neighboring plants, as well as help animals to heal faster too. 

    More About The Inula Viscosa

    It is a sturdy perennial shrub that grows in the wild around the Mediterranean. It’s an aromatic plant that has a strong smell of camphor, so you would know that it was there if you stumbled across it. The leaves and stems of the plant have a sticky resin, and the plant will bloom with small yellow flowers, especially during winter. It is one of the few food sources available to honey bees in the winter time, which is another reason it is so highly regarded by locals and nature enthusiasts alike.

    It is said to have the most potent bioactive resin production when in comparison to many other plants. When it is exposed to a lot of sun and not a lot of rain, it will secrete more resin to fend off attacks from insects and fungi bacteria, making it very sticky.

    Anti-Inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal properties

    This plant has been used for thousands of years for wound healing, ulcer treatment, respiratory tract infections, arthritis, and other traditional medicine uses.

     

    Wounds

    The application of fresh leaves, or a powder made of dry leaves on open or bleeding wounds or burns results in the stoppage of bleeding, and serves as an effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent. Treatment using Inula viscosa is preferred by villagers over modern medications, since it promotes faster wound healing.

    Dry and rough skin

    The powder from the dried Inula viscosa leaf is mixed with oil and applied externally to affected parts of the body.

    Arthritis and rheumatism

    About 200 grams of Inula viscosa leaves are boiled in
    water for 5 minutes; filtered extract is poured into a bath full
    of warm water in which the arthritic person immerses
    himself for 30 minutes. For rheumatism, a powder made
    from Inula viscosa’s dried leaves is mixed with olive oil and
    applied on the affected area.

    Hemorrhoids

    Treatment for hemorrhoids consists of steaming Inula viscosa leaves and sitting over the vapors. A paste is also prepared from ground leaves, mixed with olive oil and applied as a topical ointment.

    Bronchitis and respiratory
    infections

    The extract is added to boiling water and the tonic consumed.

    High blood pressure
