- What are Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™?
Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™ are transdermal Patches with organic ingredients that are applied onto strategic areas to provide symptomatic relief for common discomforts.
- What are the ingredients in Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™?
Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™ are manufactured in the US in an FDA approved facility, using USDA certified organic ginger, chamomile, and fennel in proprietary formulae.
- How do the ingredients work?
The ingredients diffuse or go cross the skin directly into areas where symptoms occur. For example, the colic or digestive Patches are applied right onto the belly-button, or on areas of the abdomen to relieve symptoms of the digestive system. The cough Patch is placed on the chest to relieve cough and congestion.
- What are the benefits of these ingredients?
Ginger, chamomile and fennel have been used for thousands of years in various cultures to bring relief of common symptoms. Modern research has verified their biochemical properties: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, improved immunity, etc. (see ‘Our Ingredients’). They are natural, safe, and effective for all age groups, including infants and the elderly.
- How are the Harmony Patches™ different from oral remedies?
Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™ are applied onto the skin. Infants, children, and even some adults and the elderly, often choke, gag on oral remedies, which often contain bicarbonate, citric acid, sugar, even alcohol. Oral remedies take time to be effective: they have to be first absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, then circulate throughout the body, eventually concentrating a small amount in the areas with symptoms. The Harmony Patches™ are applied directly onto the areas with symptoms, absorbed immediately into the skin, bringing much faster and more concentrated relief.
- How are the Harmony Patches™ different from oil or cream rubs?
Oil and cream rubs are messy to apply, and are easily rubbed off on clothes and diapers. The Harmony Patches™ are easily applied onto the skin like stickers. No mess. Nothing rubs off.
- Are the Harmony Patches™ safe?
The ingredients are USDA organic ingredients, the adhesive for the infant and child Patches are water-based, have no silicon, acrylic, rubber, or latex. Even after wearing them for several hours, small infants had no reactions, not even skin rashes.
- Are the Harmony Patches™ credible and reliable?
The Harmony Patches were invented by a well-known scholar, M.D. physician, and alternative medicine expert with 30+ years’ experience as an author, researcher, lecturer, and clinician. Comprehensive research and development were carried out to ensure that the Harmony Patches™ are safe and effective.
- What is the significance of the bamboo in Dr. Loo’s Logo?
The Bamboo symbolizes longevity. The five leaves sprouting to the left of the bamboo signify the five elements of Nature that exist metaphorically within humans. The three leaves sprouting to the right of the bamboo signify the Asian idea of trinity: Heaven, Man, Earth; that is, Man exists harmoniously between Heaven and Earth.
- Why are they called Harmony Patches™?
When a loved one does not feel well, especially when the loved one is an infant or an elderly parent, not only is the ‘harmony’ of health disrupted, the ‘harmony’ in relationship with loved one is disrupted. For example, parents with colicky infants often feel helpless, frustrated, stressed upon seeing a crying and fussy baby in obvious discomfort. This discomfort may affect the relationship between parents and caregivers, and between the parents and the baby. Dr. Loo’s Harmony Patches™ safely, easily and effectively relieve common symptoms, restore Health, restore Harmony.
