  • Mission Statement

     

     

    The Rosacea Research & Development Institute [RRDi] is the first non-profit organization made by rosaceans for rosacea sufferers that will collect donations for rosacea research to be performed by physicians and biomedical research scientists and includes these specific goals:

    Goal # 1: To be the first non profit organization for rosacea patient advocacy.

    Goal # 2: To have a majority of rosaceans the right to vote who sits on the board of directors.

    Goal # 3: To make this the first rosacea specific non profit organization to utilize most of the donations for research and treatment development. This is in stark contrast to non profit organizations that spend 50% to 60% of their donations on paying their staff, board of directors or private contractors.

    Goal # 4: To allow rosacea sufferers to guide where and how the money is spent on rosacea research and be the first non profit organization to allow rosaceans to be members of the corporation. Until June 7, 2004, the date of incorporation, there had been no other non profit organization that allowed input from rosacea sufferers.

    Goal # 5: To attain a level such that the RRDi can directly impact medical articles published on the subject, information disseminated to physicians and rosacea sufferers and apply positive pressure on the medical community that does not take rosacea seriously.

    Goal #6: Continue to publish the Journal of the RRDi and fund all authors who contribute an article.

    • "Praxis Biotechnology is developing a medication to reduce inflammation associated with rosacea without affecting the rest of the body." Albany biotech startup wins $50K at business competition, By Madison Iszler, Albany Times Union
    • I found this article in the Houston Chronicle interesting since I take a 81 mg enteric coated Aspirin every day:  "Q: This is a true story. In the 1950s, my grandmother was taking a "heart pill" her doctor had prescribed. The older doctor retired, and Granny went to see the new doctor to get her heart pill refilled. The young doctor told her: "Mrs. G., this is nothing but aspirin. There is nothing wrong with your heart." He refused to refill her heart pill. Three weeks later she died of a heart attack. That was in the 1950s, before any research had been done on the effects of aspirin and the heart. A: It took decades for the medical profession to recognize how useful aspirin could be in preventing heart attacks. A recent Swedish study discovered that people who discontinued low-dose aspirin were 37 percent more likely to have a hospitalization, heart attack or stroke (Circulation, online, Sept. 26, 2017). The investigators suggest that there may be rebound blood clotting when aspirin is stopped suddenly. Other research also has shown a link between aspirin discontinuation and serious cardiovascular events. If people need to stop aspirin prior to surgery or because of side effects, they should do so under careful medical supervision." Sudden discontinuation of aspirin could create serious issues

    • dazed1 has been posting a lot in RF and recently posted about a natural topical treatment using oils from plants that you can make yourself. Her post at RF explains the process in details. This isn't for the lazy and requires a lot of work. If any of you try this treatment yourself, please post here in this thread the results. 
    • Hi, thanks for including my post.   If you go back to the standard animal diet, you might notice that you wont have issues as well, systematic inflammation caused by animal protein and high glycemic index/insulin foods is not something that is happening very soon. So the rest period of 2 weeks, might give you few days extra before the problem start arise, sure it can happen at once but most of the time is slow process. I can go on and on, but i'm short on time so i will leave out some videos with the subject i'm talking about, and that is the harmful effects of animal protein.
