Like most of you ladies, I love a good mani/pedi. I don’t care what time of year it is, there is something about dipping my feet into that warm bubbling foot bath, having my soles scrubbed and kneaded within an inch of their lives and leaving with those perfectly manicured and varnished nails that makes me feel just a smidge more glamorous.

All was well in the garden, till I noticed my first green nail and then another and another..then one or two fell off..hmmm could it be the dreaded fungus ? Afraid so..and that’s not all you can leave your corner nail salon with. Conventional nail polishes dispensed at most drugstores and nail salons contain a veritable witch’s brew of chemicals, including toluene, which has been linked to a wide range of health issues from simple headaches and eye, ear, nose and throat irritation to nervous system disorders and damage to the liver and kidneys.

Another common yet toxic ingredient in conventional nail polish is a chemical plasticizer known as dibutyl phthalate (DBP). According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit research and advocacy organization that campaigns to educate consumers about the health risks of cosmetics, studies have linked DBP to underdeveloped genitals and other reproductive system problems in newborn boys.

As such, DBP is banned from cosmetics in the European Union but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States has taken no such action, even though a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found DBP and other toxic phthalates in the bloodstreams of every person they tested. Further, five percent of women tested who were of childbearing age (ages 20-40) had up to 45 times more of the chemicals in their bodies than researchers had expected to find.


Well, have no fear..DR REMEDY is here !! The brainchild of two well known podiatrists. Dr. Cirlincione partnered with Dr. Spielfogel and together they formulated Dr.’s REMEDY®, free from THE BIG 3, but also UNIQUELY ENRICHED with ingredients, such as tea tree oil and garlic bulb extract, which are naturally occurring anti-fungal, antibacterial, and healthier for the nail.

Not only is Dr.’s REMEDY® better for you, it comes in a rainbow of today’s most fashionable colors.

    Men can take advantage of keeping their nails in good condition as well. Many women notice when a man has well-maintained hands and feet.

    I happen to be one of the many men who is endorsing men getting pedicures and wearing colored poliosh on my toenails. It is the new “erring” for men – not mainstream, but becoming more popular.
