New Antifungal Nail Lacquer | Fiore Rx

Fiore Rx is a new antifungal nail lacquer that can be used by both men and women who are concerned about contracting nail fungus. This new product is ideal for individuals who are looking for a way to protect their nails from the potential problems associated with nail fungus. It can be very difficult to reverse the destructive changes to the nail once a fungal or bacterial infection begins. Thus the strategy behind Fiore Rx is to prevent fungus from infecting healthy nails before it happens. Fiore Rx Antifungal Nail Lacquer


As appearance and physical beauty continue to be in the spotlight, nail salons and exercise gyms are frequently visited facilities that unfortunately also are a common source for the spread of nail fungus. One way to help avoid catching nail fungus would be to bring your own antifungal lacquer with you to the salon. Individuals can even use their own nail polish if desired; first protect the nails with the clear or matte Fiore Rx finish and then apply the desired color on top of the Fiore Rx base. 

Fiore Rx is a new product line of foot care products. Vist FioreRx here.


Recap from Honduras

Take a look at last week's medical / surgical mission trip to Comayagua, Honduras. In association with Mary our Queen Catholic Church of Atlanta, the International Institute of Foot and Ankle Surgery (IIFAS) and the International Foundation of Reconstructive Surgery (IFRS), 55 volunteers traveled to Comayagua, Honduras for a week long (July 24-31) surgical / medical and infrastructural rehab mission trip. The group’s arrival to the San Pedro Sula, Honduras Airport was followed by a 4-hour bus ride to the town of Comayagua, Honduras. The surgical / medical mission work was concentrated at the St. Benedict Joseph Medical Center, a small catholic surgical and healthcare facility, which had been established and maintained by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and Light of the World Charities since 2004. 

Roughly 30 foot and ankle sugeries were performed ranging from basic soft tissue surgery to major reconstructive foot and ankle procedures. Additionally, the local physicans and staff were trained on a variety of clinical and surgical procedures.
