Health Essist Transdermal Patch Products
Some History Background
- On Wednesday, February 15, 2006, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for HEALTH ESSIST HANGOVER-FREE PATCH by Health Essist, Inc., HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA 92648.
- On Oct 06, 2006, 01:00 ET WayPoint Biomedical, Inc. announced that it has selected national convenience store broker TNT Marketing, Inc. to represent its products nationwide. In conjunction with TNT Marketing, WayPoint will co-exhibit at the upcoming NACS Tradeshow in Las Vegas (Oct. 9 - 11) where they will showcase their new Health Essist(R) Hangover-Free Patch(TM) at the TNT Booth (#2148).
- In 2007, Patch-Me-In.com was created to promote Health patch products to US distributors.
- On Wed Jun 3, 2009 Waypoint Biomedical Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WYPH) announced that the Federal Drug Administration, FDA, has directed WayPoint to cease promoting, marketing and selling its "trans-dermal patch products." Its packaging as it depicts a "disease" and is in violation of the FDA's rules and regulations. The FDA also determined that the Company's products were a "drug delivery system" and therefore were in violation of rules and regulations as defined by the FDA. The Company was given permission by the FDA to sell its products in the International markets and would be allowed to continue to manufacture its "trans-dermal." products for export only. The Company is evaluating its position of marketing, promoting and selling its products internationally in order to determine the feasibility and economics of such a plan.
After 2009 and the FDA ruling, all products that were selling on this site says: FOR EXPORT ONLY."
I had been following the Health Essist patch products after visiting their booth in 2006 at the NACS Tradeshow in Las Vegas. Following the FDA ruling I read a news report about WayPoint Biomedical Holdings, Inc. announcing that, effective February 6, 2009, President, Chief Operating Officer and Director Bret Hendzel was relieved of all of his employment positions and duties with the Company for cause. And that WayPoint Biomedical Holdings was pursuing legal remedies in order to recover Company shares issued to Mr. Hendzel based upon claims that the company asserts against Mr. Hendzel for various alleged breaches of fiduciary duty, including breaches arising out of the actions taken by the FDA.
The attempt to sell the trans-dermal patches to only the international market was not successful. Patch-Me-In.com/ website selling Health Essist products lasted only another year after the FDA ruling and then disappeared from the web. Recently I discovered that the domain was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its original content from archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website.
Periodically you see news stories that are similar to what happened to the Health Essist patch products. I recently utilized an ecommerce site that offers affordable replacement eyeglass lenses. They state that they offer all kinds of replacement lenses, including single vision, progressive, bifocal, and trifocal. The materials used for the replacement lenses are from plastic and polycarbonate, to high index, Trivex and even glass. And if you need replacement prescription sunglass lenses, you can order them with custom tint, Transitions technology, polarized, and mirror coated. Finally, they offer a “Perfect Lenses Guarantee” so if the lenses are not acceptable to the customer, the online store, Eyeglasses.com, will redo the lenses or issue refund in full. The online store boasts an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and state that "our" lenses are made in the United States. To ensure that the replacement lenses are perfect, every lens order goes through over 20 quality control checkpoints. I had both my regular and my sunglass lenses replaced by Eyeglasses.com and they delivered on their promises, unlike what Health Essist® promised regarding their products. As a customer you need to feel that what you purchase is the real thing and that you are not being ripped off. I applaud the FDA for their actions.
Health Essist products also ran into problems when attempting to rank their products in Google searches. Google has a special category for websites selling products and services they consider YMYL - your money or your life - which might impact your finances or your health, and require these sites to hold to significantly higher standards regarding transparency and legitimacy. Legendary seo consultancy TNG/Earthling's Bob Sakayama spoke to this issue in a recent interview on the Findable podcast, saying that Google wants to avoid liability when showing search results for products/services that might cause harm. Many law suits against Google reference their search results taking people to bogus advice and medically related products that either are not effective, create harmful side effects, or are otherwise inappropriate for a wide audience. Google responded by not permitting YMYL products from ranking unless they met the new standards.
This is a cautionary tale that resulted in unfulfilled expectations and loss of face, the downfall of a man, lawsuits, and loss of investment. Consider the information on this site for its historical value.
Let's take a stroll back to 2006 when the future appeared so promising and before the FDA blew the whistle on the claims issued by Health Essist.

The Benefits of Using a Transdermal Patch Instead of a Capsule or Pill:
Transdermal topical patch products incorporate a delivery methodology that enables the skin to absorb the ingredients affixed-to or suspended-in the patch adhesive. Transdermal delivery via a patch can reduce or even eliminate many of the disadvantages frequently experienced by those who take pills. These advantages include:
- Consistent and level dose of the ingredient/supplement to the body for up to 24 hours.
- Single daily application, unlike orally taken pills that may need to be taken several times a day (most pills or capsules will go through your system in 3 to 6 hours.
Reduction of gas and stomach discomfort, since the patch ingredients bypass the digestive tract and are directly absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Be sure the skin area where the patch will be placed is clean and dry.
- Attach the patch so it contacts tightly with the skin for maximum delivery of the patch ingredients.
- Change the skin location from where you previously placed the patch.
Do not apply more patches then is recommended in the specific patch directions for use.
