Alona Shechter – From Psoriasis To Career – אלונה שכטר – מפסוריאזיס לקריירה


Alona Shechter – From Psoriasis To Career My name is Alona Shechter and I suffer from psoriasis In 1987, when I was a mother of two little babies, I woke up one morning and saw that I had a rash on my body I immediately went to the clinic, and saw the doctor who examined me and diagnosed it as psoriasis He explained to me that this condition is hereditary and affects about 3 to 4 percent of the population It causes the skin to become very dry and red The doctor told me that the only treatment is cortisone. She sent me to the hospital and they started a series of cortisone treatments beginning with creams. Soon after I had to take pills and after that I was given injections. A few months later I became very large and swollen and it was recommended to me that I stay home to allow my body to relax A few months later we started with a series of screenings, (PUVA radiation) which helped for a short time but this condition returned The head of the department told me that he could not help me anymore In fact conventional medicine is known to deal with this condition using only cortisone or PUVA radiation He told me I should go home and learn to live with my illness I went home but I decided that I was not going to live like that as a mother of two little babies Imagine that one of my children called me and by just turning my neck it would cause bruising in that region If one of the children cried and I wanted to pick him up, I would bruise here and here and here It was clear to me that I was going to fight this condition. I decided that I was going to find a treatment using natural medicine. I spoke to homeopaths and had acupuncture treatment but again nothing helped until I saw a Dr. Rabinovi’tz, a dermatologist, and an expert in Herbal Medicine according to the teachings of Maimonides The doctor actually told me that over the years he was a conventional doctor One day he received a book by Maimonides and that made him realize that there is magic in nature He then understood that plants in the garden have a charm that we ignore He said to me: “Alona, if you do what I tell you and dab what I give you on the infected area, in a year from now you will be clean He took all kinds of creams and liquid oils, mixed them in front of my eyes, put them in boxes and sent me home. I came home, put everything on the table and started to read and to learn how to apply these creams and in what sequence to apply them I opened the first box and realized that if I’m going to use these creams every night for a year I may lose the disease but I may also lose my husband because the smell was very strong The first night I waited for my husband to go to sleep and only when I heard snoring did I go to the bathroom took a shower using the dark soap and then started to apply the green cream that the doctor gave me When I reached my stomach i smelled the heavy odor of hyssop and quickly realized that if he wakes up it would be the end for me Three minutes later he woke up, saw me and laughed so hard and told me not to get up that morning as I would frighten the children I walked around the house like this with this green cream on me for a few weeks with no improvement to my skin A few weeks later I slowly began to feel my limbs moving more freely, no tearing of the skin and no bruising Eight months later my skin was completely healed and then I asked myself a few difficult questions Who is Maimonides? Which medicinal plants did the doctor use? If these medicinal herbs helped me with my condition it could then be used to cure other skin conditions like Atopic dermatitis, seborrhea, acne, hemorrhoids, chaffing fungus, wrinkles, brown spots and puffiness under the eyes Out of curiosity I studied Dermatology and learnt about medicinal herbs, and I realized that the skin does not understand product names, nor whether the packaging is expensive or not. The skin only understands one thing the resulting change from a high concentration of active ingredients What did Dr. Rabinovi’tz do? He gave us the herbs – the highest concentration allowed by the Ministry of Health so the effect was Bingo In 1994 I bought the formulas from Dr. Rabinovi’tz which I developed further. I came across people with various skin conditions and I developed solutions for those conditions To date the company develops products for the body, the face and hair Today in 2014 the company has within our Club 130,000 satisfied customers in Israel and I invite you to join our club and enjoy our natural products Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell the story of my life
