    RRDi Education Grants

    The RRDi has funded educational grants sponsored by Galderma. For more information click here.

    Rosaceans can make a difference in rosacea research by joining the RRDi as a corporate member. Please join. The RRDi is planning on doing some novel rosacea research. You can become involved with this volunteer movement of rosaceans making a difference in the direction of the research. Never underestimate the power of rosaceans volunteering. For example, you could volunteer as a grant writer (if you have no experience you could learn how).

    Joel T. Bamford, M.D., wrote an article in the Journal of the RRDi entitled, "Is it possible for rosaceans to do research?" The answer to that question is joining our cause and making this possible. The RRDi is in the forefront of the medical digital revolution which you can be a part of. For more information click here.

    According to Michael Detmar, M.D., in 2003, only one paper was published for every 144,000 rosacea patients in the United States, compared to a 1-to-11 ratio for melanoma and 1 to 4,900 for psoriasis. [Source]

    • 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.
