W hen a loved one becomes ill, many of us feel powerless
and overwhelmed. That wasn’t the case for Candice
Frederick. When her grandmother, who raised her, was
diagnosed with diabetes, Frederick got motivated. “I
saw what this overbearing disease can do to one’s body
in such a short amount of time, and knew something had to be done as
soon as possible,” she says.
Of course, it helped that Frederick was exceptionally well-equipped to
take action. A Licensed Paramedical Skincare Specialist and experienced
Biomedical Engineer, Frederick had established expertise in solving tough
medical problems. Among her achievements was the design of a Bluetooth-
operated device that detected abnormal changes in the bodies of epilepsy
patients before seizures, sending reports wirelessly to their physicians and
triggering a patch of alternative medicine under their skin.
Frederick decided to apply her skills to creating a line of topical
alternative medicines specifically designed to fight diseases and promote
general well-being. Along the way, she acquired a host of additional
certifications, in everything from Herbology to Microdermabrasion. She
began by formulating products aimed at increasing cell renewal and
fighting the aging process, but has since pushed forward into work that
truly inspires her: natural wellness.
The result is OhMyGosh Alternative Medicine, an extensive line of
products that includes everything from beauty staples such as facial
cleansers and masques to the new OMGRx line, an array of purely topical
alternative medicines aimed at fighting everything from high blood
pressure to multiple sclerosis. The company also develops privately labeled
and contract products for a variety of clients.
“OhMyGosh believes that the treatment should not just cover up the
symptoms of health or skin issues, but concentrate on the origin of the
problem, which is immunity imbalance,” she says. “Building up the
immune system in the client battles illness as well as infection, allowing
the individual to look and feel more energetic while obtaining a new state
of well-being.” It’s an approach Frederick refers to as “skin warfare” —
battling illness through the medium of our largest organ.
Frederick has big plans for the future of her company, including
the creation of a wellness center where patients can receive hands-on
treatments. She also looks forward to partnering with hospitals to seek out
ways to make existing medications more natural. It’s all part of her mission
to put her customers on the road to recovery using only nature at its best.
