DR. PAUL’S PIGGY PASTE® GOES TO MARKET WITH A PROVEN SOLUTION FOR THE 40 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING WITH UNSIGHTLY TOENAILS
Available at Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid, safe and effective over-the-counter gel combats fungus with unique vinegar-based formula
Washington, Ill. (February 4, 2013) – This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home…for fear of revealing his ugly toenail. For as many as 40 million Americans, unsightly toenails are a fact of life. Caused by fungus that can penetrate the nail and nail bed, thick, discolored toenails can be a serious problem for many athletes, including runners, tennis players and others, or those just unlucky enough to have been exposed at the gym or nail salon. Onychomycosis (commonly referred to as toenail fungus) may also result in splitting of the nails or lifting of the nail bed and those who suffer from it know that it can be very difficult to treat.
Fortunately, Paul A. Kinsinger, M.D., an Illinois family physician, took to heart the concerns of his patients and created a unique, vinegar-based formula to treat nails that have become unsightly due to fungus: Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste.
“In my practice, scores of patients were complaining of ugly toenails as a result of fungal infections that just wouldn’t clear up on their own,” said Dr. Kinsinger. “A popular home remedy I recommend to my patients is soaking feet in a mixture of vinegar and water for 20 minutes a day for several months, as vinegar has natural anti-fungal properties. But my patients balked at the amount of time this involved, which is when I thought there might be a way to deliver the natural healing power of vinegar in an easier application.”
Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste consists of a patent-pending formula of vinegar and thymol (a natural substance with antiseptic properties that is the active ingredient in some mouthwashes)
Evaluations of patients in his Washington, Ill., medical practice who used Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste, for at least 3 months demonstrated that the product improves the appearance of toenails in most patients, with no harmful side effects. Surveys from over 400 customers indicate 3 out of 4 people who used Piggy Paste saw an improvement in the appearance of their affected toenails.
“My patients were very receptive to trying Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste because it offered a safe alternative to prescription anti-fungal medications that pose the risk of potentially serious side effects,” said Dr. Kinsinger. “The beauty of Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste is that there is nothing in it that will hurt you. For many people, that alone makes them willing to give this product a shot.”
“I’ve never seen a product sell like this in my 50 years in business,” said Jim Linsley, owner of Lindy’s Downtown Market in Washington and the first store to stock Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste. “I had no idea that unhealthy toenails were such a widespread problem.”
Today, Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste is available nationwide in Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid as well as other select retailers. To find a retailer or to order the product online, visit www.piggypaste.com.
