Patch-it uses pyroligneous acid (purified wood vinegar). Selected crystal powders and sorbitol all working synergistically to create an effective product. The wood we use for making purified vinegar is harvested from a renewable resource. There are many different grades of wood vinegar, extracted form different types of wood. Only the highest quality, purest grade is selected, tested and used in Patch-it poultices. That means Patch-it contains only the pro-bio elements that are active and health enhancing.

- The making of wood vinegar
- One industry that was ubiquitous in the early 1900's was the wood distillation industry. The principal product after processing was charcoal with low yields of chemical biproducts. The wood used for distillation was air dried for 6 to 18 months. Modernized drying methods were later developed to shorten the drying time and better control the moisture content.During distillation, wood is placed inside an oven and heated. When wood is heated above 270 C, it begins a process of decomposition called carbonization. If air is absent the final product is charcoal (since there is no oxygen present to react with the wood). If air, which contains oxygen, is present, the wood will catch fire and burn when it reaches a temperature of about 400-500 C and the final product is wood ash. When wood is heated in the absence of air, moisture is first driven off and, until this is complete, the wood temperature remains at about 100-110 C. The first distillate (condensation from the gases) is almost entirely water. It is not until about the 4th hour that the liquid slowly darkens containing an increased amount of acid. The crude condensate produced from distillation of wood is called pyroligneous acid. This crude pyroligneous acid is then refined by fractional d:" ":istillation It is this double distillation process that makes the vinegar in Patch-it safe and effective.
How Patch-it works Patch-it is a poultice that contains a mixture or powdered ingredients. When the poultice is placed in contact with the skin and held in place over a number of hours, it promotes improved blood circulation and detoxification. The typical contact points on the body are the soles of the feet. It can also be used in areas where there is discomfort or pain. For example: Patch-it can easily be used on the shoulders, back, knee, ankle, elbow or other areas of the body.
Stimulation of meridian points
The concept of stimulating acupuncture points at the base of the feet, for example through foot reflexology massage, is well established. Meridians in Chinese traditional medicine may be understood as channels that link various parts of the body. Stimulation of points along such meridians by use of needles or massage will in turn generate stimulus in other organs or body functions that are related to that meridian.
Far Infrared Radiation
Patch-it utilizes the far infrared Radiation (FIR) effect of certain materials to stimulate of the meridian points. FIR has been researched and tested for many years in Japan, China, the US and Sweden for a wide variety of conditions such as muscle sprains, strains, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis, shoulder stiffness, period pains etc. One effect of FIR is that it may replicate a cardiovascular training effect even with people confined to a wheel chair whop are unable to exercise in the conventional way. Research in the early 1980's led to the idea that infrared stimulation of the cardiovascular system could be a possible means of maintaining cardiovascular conditioning.
Safe and Effective
Patch-it uses a special powderized purified aged pyroligneous acid that is free of harmful substances such as phenols. Nutriworks' powderized wood vinegar is made by a unique process to retain higher levels of vinegar (around 50% of the total weight of powder in the bag). This high concentration of vinegar is necessary to produce the beneficial far infrared effect. Patch-it provides a high level of active ingredients content and is designed for longer lasting effect. Generally the effect from the poultice ceases when all the powder in the bag is wet. Each poultice contains 5 grams of high quality, natural ingredients. With the use of a more absorbent bag material, each poultice will normally remain effective for at least 7 hours. After effective absorption of toxin and moisture from the body, the particles within the poultice turn deep brown in color.
Tourmaline and Germanium powders are essential in order to benefit from the negative ion effect of these crystals. Both these crystals have been suggested to be beneficial to promoting physical well being. For example, tourmaline has been incorporated into fabric made into clothing that will provide healthy stimulus to the wearer's body. Sorbitol acts as a humidity sink acting as a trap for moisture that is removed from the skin surface during detoxification.
