Seizures and Head Lice

What can seizures possibly have to do with head lice?

Why let me tell you! One of our clients was an ER doctor and we treated his wife and daughter for head lice…yes, even doctors can’t defeat the dreaded super lice. He was thrilled to find out about our heat treatment and non-toxic products. Why, because he knows first hand the neurological impact of the toxic chemicals in most OTC head lice treatments.  We were shocked to find out that a standard question ER docs ask a patient that comes to the ER with seizures is whether they have used an OTC head lice treatment?  Seriously!

The neurotoxins in head lice treatment products have a neurological impact on everyone, but those with neurological sensitivities can experience profound impacts. So if you have a sensitive child, you want to avoid the toxic OTC products at all costs…no joke.  Research has shown speech regression, aggressive behaviors, decrease in motor skills…just to list a few.  Clearly they can also cause seizures…

If you wouldn’t pour pesticides that kill rats on your child, please find out what is in your head lice treatment, there are safer and easier ways to get rid of the bugs…I promise.

Super Hero…Super Lice…WHAT??

Why is lice so prevalent now? I never had it as a kid and don’t remember anyone having it growing up…so this launched my incredibly savvy internet investigation. According to the always reliable Google, DDT was developed by Merck & Co in the 1943 to treat head and body lice in the US Army around the world…yes, Merck was responsible for creating that lovely pesticide, we have so much to thank them for…ahem. DDT was quite effective in treating lice until it was finally banned in 1972…just about the time our lovely generation was growing up (if you are younger than me, please don’t point that out, it simply depresses me). Head lice didn’t make a significant re-appearance until 1977, and even then it wasn’t enough to become an epidemic in classrooms like we see today. Permethrin (another sweet little neurotoxin and pesticide) was introduced in the late 1970’s, but head lice became resistant, and as a result dozens of new nuerotoxins and pesticides have  been created to treat everything from head lice to rat infestations…really people, have we not figured out that we can’t outsmart the bugs and rats??!?
