Atlantick, the power of a mother's intuition for a tick bite

Shared by Carolina Piedade on 2022-01-16 12:02

About the solution

When Darian, Lisa Wallet's son, suddenly became unable to move his legs without any severe pain, every alarm bell in her head went off! She took him to every doctor in town, but no one could tell her what it was that caused this sudden loss of movement. The paralysis lasted for months, and Darian was forced to use a walker to move around.
After many tests, the doctors tought it could be juvenile arthritis, but Lisa had her suspicions and pushed to get a test for Lyme disease, which proved to be positive, granting the diagnosis of an untreated tick bite! Worst of all, after testing all the family members, Darian's brother also had Lyme disease.

Lisa then took to the internet to begin researching how to protect her kids from ticks without using DEET, due to it being a chemical applied directly to the skin, and if not used properly may cause seizures, uncoordinated movements, agitation, aggressive behavior, low blood pressure, and skin irritation. She couldn't find any good alternative that would be as effective in preventing tick bites and also not being harmful to the user.

This is how Atlantick was invented! When Lisa teamed up with researchers at Acadia University, they developed a new formula completely DEET free, which was put through extensive studies and testing, proving to be effective and able to stand up to competing DEET-based repellents, as it is 97.5 percent effective in preventing tick bites.

Now there is an option to prevent Lyme disease without harmful chemicals, allowing kids and grownups to enjoy the outdoors as much as they can, without the possibility of devastating, debilitating or life-changing consequences due to a tick bite
