New Haven, CT, January 16, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Many people assume that winter time means that lice are taking a rest. Not so, says Karen Sokoloff, owner of LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service. In fact, she says that January and February are very busy months lice-wise as family life equilibrates after the holiday season, where folks are in close proximity to family and friends and head lice have ample opportunity to spread. LiceDoctors which has been providing help for many years to families in Connecticut in Fairfield County and the Hartford area now makes house calls to families in New Haven, New London, and Middlesex and surrounding areas.
LiceDoctors has treated over 125,000 clients successfully using a step by step, all-natural lice treatment protocol developed 20 years ago by Dr. Stephen Beck, the company's on-staff medical doctor. Dr. Beck studied the life cycle of lice and developed the protocol to align with all stages of the development of the bug. The technique is multi-pronged as each stage requires a different line of attack. Sokoloff explains, "First we suffocate any live bugs. Then we switch gears and go for the nits (lice eggs). Each nit has a hard shell that houses the baby bug; nothing penetrates the shell so what works to kill bugs will not work to kill nits. We meticulously remove the nits. It is essential that all nits are removed or addressed with a simple follow-up plan as if you leave any behind, they will hatch and eventually reproduce. LiceDoctors' protocol is so effective that we back it with a full guarantee."
Sokoloff, who has spoken on the subject of head lice across the nation goes on to report, "We have been making house calls in Fairfield and Hartford for many years and our technicians have occasionally traveled to New Haven and nearby. It became evident based on the demand for our services that it was time to fully establish a team in New Haven. We have many former clients, pediatricians, and school nurses in Connecticut who know us and have referred us to families in New Haven, New London, and Middlesex counties. We are so pleased to be able to provide our services in these areas."
Besides eradicating the lice infestation and providing a calming influence during a stressful time for families, LiceDoctors sees education as a key priority "Education is essential when it comes to head lice and we teach families how to identify and treat lice and how to help to prevent a re-infestation. We give the families the tools so that if they are ever confronted with lice in the future, they will know how to catch it early."
