Swiss Medica And National Fibromyalgia Association Schedule Joint Announcement Of New Breakthrough Pain Relief Treatment For Fibromyalgia Sufferers

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 2, 2005) - Swiss Medica Inc. (OTCBB:SWME) will host a joint press announcement with the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) on June 6, 2005 at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Marketplace conference in New Orleans to unveil a new strategic partnership - and officially launch O24 Fibromyalgia pain reliever. O24 Fibromyalgia is the first product of its kind developed to specifically address the symptoms of chronic pain associated with the fibromyalgia syndrome and is also a patented and clinically tested, strong and safe, all-natural, over-the-counter health product. Swiss Medica is the owner and distributor of this product.

Lynne Matallana, the founder and president of the NFA, will speak at a press conference about the plight of up to 11 million Americans living with the chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia - and how Swiss Medica's new O24 Fibromyalgia pain reliever will become the first product to carry the NFA official Seal of Approval on its packaging. Swiss Medica President, Grant Johnson will discuss the previously announced results of a recently completed randomized double blind clinical trial that compared the O24 pain reliever against a placebo on patients suffering fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is typically characterized by widespread musculoskeletal aches, pain and stiffness, soft tissue tenderness, general fatigue and sleep disturbances. The most common sites of pain include the neck, back, shoulders, pelvic girdle and hands. Fibromyalgia patients experience a range of symptoms, varying in intensity that can fluctuate over time.

The NFA estimates that the average family doctor sees at least one patient each day who is suffering from fibromyalgia and that the syndrome could be costing the U.S. economy as much as $10 billion a year in lost productivity.

Ms. Matallana and Mr. Johnson will also discuss the launch of the new O24 Fibromyalgia product in pharmacies throughout the United States and Canada. Swiss Medica's O24 Essential Oil Pain Neutralizer will be available in over 13,000 stores throughout North America by the end of June 2005.
