TOTALLY BLIND WOMAN RUNS BUSINESS AGAINST GREAT ODDS
Charleston, SC -- November 1, 2006 -- Alicia Chisolm founded her own company. Healing Herbs, LLC in 2006 to sell an organic pain relief formula she developed herself, Harmonize Naturelle. She also currently coordinates all aspects of her business-packaging, marketing, shipping, and billing. What makes this so remarkable is that Chisolin does it all as a sightless person.
At age 12, Chisoim was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes and, as a result of its complications, has been totally blind for 16 years. Due to her condition, she also suffered from severe nerve damage (diabetic peripheral neuropathy or DPN), which causes excruciating pain. Chisolm was prescribed harsh narcotics and antidepressants. But, she says they had serious side effects, did little to lessen the pain, and made her feel "like a zombie." As a former pharmacy technician, Chisolm determined to find an alternative method to ease her pain.
To enable her to conduct her own online research, she contacted the Association For the Blind. With its assistance, he learned to operate JAWS, a screen reading software that allows the user to navigate the computer by hearing there than sight. Using this technology, she was able to collaborate with a well-known chemist, Dr. Christopher eicher. Together, they perfected Harmonize Naturelle, an organic topical pain relief serum.
Chisolm says Harmonize Naturelle relieves pain caused from DPN as well as other muscle, joint, and nerve She often receives praise and thanks from her many satisfied customers. And, when her customers call their positive feedback, she knows she has done what she set out to do-provide a natural, effective alternative in relief. And that makes Chisolm feel that the struggle to establish her business has been worthwhile. She If 1 can prevent just one person from suffering as 1 did, then that's thc greatest feeling in the world." For product information, contact Alicia Chisoim at 843-7634083.
