New lice product proves to be safer, more effective
Lice products containing pesticides have been getting a lot of negative
press recently. The pesticides are not safe and are proving to be very
dangerous. The pesticides cure is much worst than the lice infestation.
Many children have become sick from the treatments, which are believed
to have led to learning disabilities, physical impairment (such as cancer
and blindness) and even death.
And although the pesticide treatment is causing harm to humans, lice
are gradually becoming immune to this conventional method of extermination.
A revolutionary, non-toxic and pesticide free enzyme solution has been
developed. Enzymes are very effective in eliminating head lice, body lice,
scabies and crabs. (The solution actually works on almost all insects).
Enzymes are used in cleaning solutions such as contact lens cleaners
and pool supplies. The combination of enzymes, including Protease, Lipase,
Cellulase and Amylase, has proven to safely eliminate most insects. These
enzymes will not harm humans, animals or the environment.
How the enzymes work is quite amazing and interesting. The enzymes cause
the exoskeletons of the bugs to become "unglued" and fall apart. In a way
it "digests" the insects. It also loosens the eggs and nits, which the
adults have laid. This causes the eggs and nits to fall away easily and
not allow the young to hatch.
Lice will not become immune to enzymes. Enzymes are used in the insect's
systems to aid in their growing and molting process. Since the enzymes
are already in their systems, but not in such a large dose, lice cannot
build up a resistance. They would have to become immune to themselves.
The enzymes can be found in Lice Arrest. The enzymes are exclusive and
a patent is pending on the use of these enzymes.
