I've been volunteering at IHHS ever since I was in high school and Lisa and the staff always treated me with care and respect. They go to great lengths to get the word out about hyperhidrosis and raise awareness about this disorder. I've known this organization almost since the beginning and seen them grow and do great things. Thanks to the work that is done, HH treatment and insurance coverage for it has come a long way. They're always in the know about upcoming treatments and work hard to facilitate progress in the field by interacting with scientists and companies that develop treatments for hyperhidrosis. There really is no other organization like this in the world.
I first learned about hyperhidrosis through a client I worked with at a behavioral clinic. I saw the debilitating effects of hyperhidrosis on a child worked with first hand. Daily, the child would struggle to hold utensils, writing tools and even simple toys that required assembly were difficult tasks. More heartbreaking not only as a therapist, but as a parent, was the constant teasing from classmates when they were required to sit near or hold the child's hands for a group activities. Comments were frequently made about how "wet" and"gross" the child was.
The parents sought treatment options, and were given the "first line of defense", Botox to reduce the symptoms of her excessive sweating. Unfortunately it was not effective and they declined further treatment due to side effects. If only they had they had known of the many options that are available, perhaps the outcome would have been different.
Being introduced to the International Hyperhidrosis Society has given me that opportunity and the tools to provide options for those seeking treatments. Not a size fits all options for those suffering hyperhidrosis! Not only has the organization further informed me about hyperhidrosis, the available treatments, awareness for patients and doctors, and provided invaluable information regarding studies that can help provided treatments for those suffering with the many forms of hyperhidrosis.
Thanks to the work and dedication of Lisa Pieretti, and her medical friends, countless volunteers, advocates those suffering with hyperhidrosis, they now have hope and options with the International Hyperhidrosis Society.
What a valuable non-profit organization which is committed to making a difference in so many lives! I did not realize the numbers of people who suffer from this embarrassing and limiting condition until I became educated on hyperhidrosis by chatting with individuals who suffer. The IHHS website SweatHelp.org offers the most up to date education, informational programs and opportunities to participate in clinical trials with investigational drugs which will hopefully make a difference. Lisa Pieretti is one of the highly dedicated and professional individuals who make this organization tick! I totally recommend the expertise and assistance of this nonprofit group.
Lisa and the team at IHHS have been an amazing partner for Thompson Tee, and their website continues to be a go-to resource for trusted news and educational information surrounding hyperhidrosis. As someone who suffers from axillary hyperhidrosis, I created our sweat proof shirts to help others like myself deal with excessive sweating. I'm thrilled to work alongside a likeminded nonprofit that wholeheartedly shares this mission.
They are doing a great job helping those with Hyperhidrosis!!
The International Hyperhidrosis Society is an amazing organization that is out there to educate, assist and support those that treat and suffer from Hyperhidrosis. www.Sweathelp.org contains an immense amount of information and we always recommend patients that they visit their website for additional guidance. We at R.A. Fischer are teaming up with the IHHS to help raise awareness of this debilitating condition and learn more about treatments like our Tap Water Iontophoresis devices.
IHHS is a great resource for hyperhidrosis sufferers! It is a one-stop source for information, doctors to see, and putting them in touch distributors/retailers of with specialty products, such as ourselves, Hidrex USA, which distribute iontophoresis devices for a long-term treatment solution. Keep up the great work, IHHS!
The International Hyperhidrosis Society is a first class non-profit organization that truly offers a one-of-kind support and education system to those individuals suffering from HH. As a company developing a potential new topical therapeutic for HH, we've had the unique opportunity to work with the IHHS on several occasions and have witnessed first hand how much of a positive impact they've had on the lives of those impacted with this condition. This organization is run by an individual that is seasoned, motivated, organized and truly passionate about creating awareness for HH and helping out those who are affected on a daily basis by HH. For all these reasons, we are and will continue to be a proud supporter of the IHHS .
I have interacted with many organizations as a healthcare advisor, and I can honestly say that the IHHS is one of the most professional, action-oriented groups I have encountered. They connect effectively with patients, healthcare providers and innovators in healthcare such as my clients. The leadership is truly dedicated, knowledgable and organized. A pleasure to work with the IHHS!
I absolutely love working with this organization! To see true care & compassion that is exerted from the physicians, to the organizers, to the staff working the seminars; it's truly amazing to watch everyone work together in effort to better these patients quality of life.
Each year I get the opportunity to participate at IHHS seminars where I interact closely with hyperhidrosis patients. It is truly a rewarding experience each and every time I get to see patients leaving with smiles on their faces after they've received their treatments. I look forward to these seminars every year and working alongside this wonderful organization to help others with excessive sweating!
Over the past several years I have had the privilege to attend and assist at IHHS events. Earlier today I had an opportunity to reflect on my experience with a friend, who happens to also be a patient of the private practice I work in. As I was explaining the IHHS to him, my eyes filled with happy tears thinking of the patients who have had life changing experiences due to the wonderful care given by the IHHS.
Excessive sweating is real and with the help of the IHHS, quality of lives are changing! During each event, I learn something new through the patients testimonies. These are memories I carry with me during my journey of caring for patients on a daily basis.
Thank you IHHS for all you do!
