Swiss Medica Raises US$2.5 Million to Increase Size of
the U.S. National Launch

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 6, 2005) - Swiss Medica
(OTCBB:SWME)has significantly increased the size of its initial U.S.
national marketing budget for the O24™ Essential Oil Pain
Neutralizer, through the exercise of previously issued warrants, which
raised gross proceeds of US$2.5 million.

"We are pleased to have minimized shareholder dilution because these
warrants were issued in March 2004 and were already part of the
company's existing capital structure," said Chief Executive Officer
Raghu Kilambi. "These new funds substantially increase the breadth and
depth of the U.S. marketing campaign to launch the O24 pain relief
product in the highly competitive national pharmacy chain marketplace."
