Amid Many Treatment Options Drionic Stands Out
June 06, 2012 0 Comments
As a lifelong sufferer of Hyperhidrosis, I have suffered most of my life from severe sweating of the hands, feet and underarms. Over 3% of the global population suffers from this disorder. This means that over 9 million people in the U.S. have this problem.
For many years I sought treatment from many doctors attempting to find a solution to my problem. For the most part I was offered medications that each had the potential of causing serious side effects. I can’t begin to tell you how my lack of treatment options affected me mentally, physically and emotionally. Needless to say my social life was impacted negatively. I have undergone T2 sympathetic ganglionectomy surgery that corrected the sweating of the palms but did not help with the other sweating. Six years ago I discovered a medical product called the Drionic that uses the ions found in ordinary tap water to block the sweat pores.
Frankly, I had some initial skepticism about the Drionic. All of the other products I had tried to treat my Hyperhidrosis had proven to be ineffective. I decided however that I had nothing to lose. I ordered a Drionic and within eight daily thirty minute treatments my sweating had stopped. The Drionic treatment is not a cure for Hyperhidrosis, but it does stop excessive perspiration for an extended period of time. I experienced absolutely no side effects or problems from my Drionic treatments. I can’t begin to relate to you the impact of staying dry has had on my life.
Many dermatologists are treating their patients who have primary and secondary hyperhidrosis with Botox injections. Botox is painful, has severe potential side-effects and is expensive. An increasing number of insurance companies deny Botox as an initial treatment option for Hyperhidrosis due to the expense of this treatment option and they often require that the Drionic be tried ahead of Botox. Most importantly though many users of Botox have found that the Drionic works better for them than Botox. The Drionic is a wonderful device and I am thrilled that I discovered it. It's safe, effective for 9 out of 10 users and affordable.
