Nigella Sativa, Nature's Cure-All

nigella research_ image1.jpg

My name is Dr. Dima Ali and I have been practicing Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine in Northern Virginia at WellMedica for over 20 years. I am also the creator of the botanically based skincare line COSMINOLOGY that I started developing when I was a teenager growing up in North Africa. I had access to hundreds of ancient herbal remedies and raw ingredients (that have since been well documented in the scientific community) that are indigenous to that region. One of these “secret” ingredients that I use in my formulations is Nigella sativa, known as the “seed of blessings”. The medicinal use of Nigella sativa dates back over 2000 years, and its legendary healing power is even mentioned in the Bible, the Torah, and the Koran.


After decades of personal use and research, I believe that Nigella sativa is one of the most powerful, all natural healing remedies in the universe and it is a core ingredient in my COSMINOLOGY skincare products. Nigella sativa is known to be an effective treatment for acne, atopic dermatitis, blemishes, wrinkles and even rosacea. There are numerous clinical studies on the use of Nigella sativa as an effective anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and even anti-carcinogenic agent.


In fact, recent clinical studies are investigating the possibility that Nigella sativa might be an effective treatment for viral upper respiratory illnesses such as Covid-19. Nigella sativa has known immune boosting properties and may even play a role in the prevention of such crippling illnesses—please see references below.*


Lastly, I believe that we can learn much from investigating the incidence and severity of debilitating respiratory illnesses in areas of the world such as North Africa, where Nigella sativa is ubiquitous and has been used as a trusted home remedy for generations. 


In an effort to help disseminate information about the healing properties of NIGELLA SATIVA, we are offering COSMINOLOGY skincare products FREE OF CHARGE while supplies last. I want to share my professional expertise, personal opinions and positive energy with everyone through this DermaDeal Act: 


Dr. Dima Ali and WellMedica of Reston, Virginia are officially conducting their own randomized, controlled study on the topical use of Nigella sativa. If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact us for pre-screening at 703870 2729 or
