Considering my expertise in pain management, educational forums, product solutions and speaking on these subjects, my work has uncovered that when facing challenges that negatively affect vibrant living, physical pain or other illnesses can cause doubt and fear further compounded by the side effects of medication. This can impact your physical, financial, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, robbing the entire family, of peace, happiness and joy. And it starts when you don’t know all your options, Good News you have options, and I promise to inspire and empower you so together we will restore your hope and quality of life.
Lou Paradise Marine Corp

I’m Lou Paradise and many years ago I served my country in US Marine Corps. I never knew that my military service and the physical pain as a result would help propel me to become the person I was destined to be, and who I am today. Passionate committed dedicated to help other people in pain not suffer the way I did. But you have to start at a place of pain to understand it and do something about it.

Now imagine being in the military as many people can and being part of an elite Marine Corps helicopter medivac rescue combat squadron, part of a group of dedicated people who fly into the most dangerous war zones to help rescue our soldiers, airman, and fellow Marines and civilians in harm’s way. Marines off a hilltop, Marines off the side of a mountain, pilots down in the ocean, or exposed to enemy fire on a beach or positions being overrun. Imagine what it is like for all of you out there who know this scenario how hard it is to lift and move somebody that’s been wounded that can’t move on their own, vulnerable scared and in pain. I did hundreds of these missions.

During the worst monsoon season in the same region this dedicated band of brother Marines, rescued 1700 Vietnamese civilians; infants to elders from raging flood waters winds and rain blowing the helicopter all over the place, being lowered by hoist to people struggling to stay alive; little kids, infants elders floating in the river of water on trees or thatch roof tops and we were at this two days November 10th the Marine Corps birthday and November 11th. And as exhausting as we were seeing those little guys down there in trouble, no way were we not going down to get them no one was going to be left behind, and oh yeah and one other little challenge we were still being shot at. The tears and joy of the elders and little ones holding on to me for dear life knowing they were okay after they thought they would die is a feeling you can’t describe. I did this with a great crew a no quit can do Marine team and we did all these things; pulling people off the mountain, out of the ocean, off the beaches or raging flood waters, into our helicopters and got them to safety, and we were not done until every soul was rescued and got the help they needed, and we did this without a moment of doubt because this is what we signed up for, and we are very proud and honored that we did our duty because to us it was what being an American is all about; people first, last and always . What we didn’t realize, I didn’t realize that the very nature of these extreme physical efforts required to perform at the highest level of service, in the end would take such a toll on our bodies from the physical and mental demands, and in my case trauma injuries I would suffer later on after military service.

Like so many of us that have served in the military your body would pay the price for all the stretches and strains impact trauma pulling tearing injuries to the joints muscles and nerves. The energy dynamics of muscles stretched to their limits, compressing nerves, nerves being stretched and hitting against bones and the residual pain of this, became my life after military service. And now like all of you I am faced with a severe level of pain, and the typical choice go to doctor who say yeah you were in the military, the VA says yeah you were in combat rescue duty yes you are pain Lou that is because you pulled people off the side of a mountain, wounded soldiers and Marines off hilltops, off beaches and out the ocean so yeah you are going to be in pain. So what is the answer then to that, yes you are in pain then what? And those of you who are listening know, you go to the doctor and they say yeah you got nerve in juries over here, the bones in your joints pressing or compressing the nerves over here, muscle bone impact injuries, or maybe you are someone newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, arthritis, lower back pain, and now at a choice point. Am I going to follow the conventional surrender by treating symptoms but not the cause of my pain and go down the slippery slope of side effects and addiction versus a healing journey out of this misery?


So with my intuition and knowledge of physiology natural medicine and a can do no quit attitude it struck me I have to create my own solution yeah maybe it will be something that had never been created before. To take what I know about TCM and acupuncture, chiropractic, massage what I learned as a kid from my Italian grandma from Asian friends we made in the war zone elders and others, I challenged myself in spite of the pain to come up with something better. So out of my own suffering of pain and desperation for relief and just plain pizzazz and determination matching the energy of necessity always the mother of invention out of the pangs of my pain experience entering through to my healing journey Topricin was born.

No Pain No Drugs And this is how a healing journey begins, restoring my own hope and quality of life so I could to the same for the millions of people suffering to have the same results. And doesn’t everyone suffering now deserve the peace of mind, I can get better, I don’t have to live in pain and be a prisoner of pain and side effects. I can get my life back and the only side effects restored hope and quality of life so I can do the things I love with the people I love. WOW.

Mr. Paradise’s enthusiasm, insight, and perseverance during a ten-year research and development phase led to the company’s breakthrough product, Topricin®.

Topical BioMedics is the research and development leader inspired by the innovative research of our company Founder, Lou Paradise. Topical BioMedics is recognized as a leader in transdermal pain relief and healing products. We are committed to bringing you high-quality, natural, safe effective pain relief options ideal for the entire family.

Our work focuses on the musculoskeletal system—joints, tendons, bursa, ligaments, and muscles. In collaboration with conventional and complementary practitioners, we are creating compelling approaches for debilitating disorders such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and lower back pain, as well as providing relief from sports- and work-related trauma injuries.

Topical BioMedics was founded in 1994, following a ten-year period of discovery and development. Our Founder and Chief of Research , Lou Paradise, innovated our leading product, Topricin®, as he sought options while facing surgery for severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.


In the 1980s, Topical BioMedics’ founders first recognized a significant void in the available options for effective and safe treatments for pain. Although we note advances made by the conventional and traditional health communities in many other areas today, pain management remains a debilitating challenge for millions of people.

As professionals at our nation’s hospitals strive to help the increasing number of sufferers, a new hope is emerging, a new respect evolving between conventional and traditional therapies for peripheral neuropathic and rheumatic pain.

Topical BioMedics’ research-based biopharmaceutical solutions are at the core of our work. We believe there is a much deeper dynamic evolving — providing a bridging mechanism between regulated natural medicines and all of primary care. Topricin®, our non-prescription medicine, lends itself as a synergistic tool for those who respect and desire safe and effective pain relief and healing.

As the National Institutes of Health invests millions to support platforms for research into complementary and conventional medicine, Topical BioMedics is helping bring together the best of these. Our primary work and mission is to drive an integrated evolving model for medicine–one where safe and effective treatments are widely available, and where no one has to live in pain. We invite you to join us in this important evolution.
