Arnica Ointment Natural Pain Relief
Many of you know I have an injured back. I hurt my back playing racquetball. I am playing again and working out because I used arnica ointment and homeopathic tablets.
My back is still healing but much better. Using extensive chiropractic treatment augmented by ChiroBioPhysics has worked wonders on my back. While healing my back, I did not take any drugs, meaning no painkillers, anti-inflammatories or aspirin-type pills.
I took supplements and herbs to help with the pain and inflammation with great success. I ventured natural healing regiment with homeopathic Arnica.
I added turmeric and the omega supplements, I have to say Arnica is my favorite of all the supplements. I notice discomfort if I don't take my homeopathic tablets. Yet, I can go days without the tablets and ointment. In all, it depends on how active I am over a period of time.
Relieves Black and Blue Bruises
I discovered Arnica ointment for black and blue bruises from playing racquetball. Never did I have a lot of black and blue bruises on my legs. Any bruise from the ball hitting my legs, arms, and back is when I apply the ointment.
Getting hit by a whizzing racquetball during a game is common. The courts are small in comparison to the speed of the ball. The bruises created by racquetball hits are not very pretty but painful. People's curious looks at my black and blue bruises tend to think someone roughed me up.
In all, arnica speeds the healing process and takes some of the pain away from the bruises.
Arnica Anti-inflammatory for Centuries
University of Maryland Medical Center states on the university's website that Arnica "has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s and is still popular today. Applied to the skin as a cream, ointment, liniment, salve, or tincture, Arnica has been used to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation, and heal wounds. It is commonly used for injuries such as sprains and bruises.''
It's important to keep in mind that Arnica is not taken orally says the website. The homeopathic version of Arnica is very diluted thus not harmful or dangerous.
I apply arnica gel, oil or ointment to the area of my injured back. I also apply to my neck if it is sore. I take the homeopathic pills one to three times a day.
My favorites are Boiron Arnica Ointment and Boiron Arnica Montana 30C. I apply or take Arnica when I think of it, which means when my back is bothering me. It works beautifully.
There are other types of arnica tablets such as 6C, 200C, and so forth. There are many types.

Which Would You Use for Pain Natural Remedies or Drugs?
T-Relief is a Great Product
I was at a natural food store, and a woman was picking T-Relief ointment instead of Boiron. I asked if her choice really worked for her pain. She said, "Yes. My chiropractor recommends this brand because her patients respond well to it."
So, I bought the arnica ointment and then brand pills. Yes. The brand is great and seems strong and more lasting.
In all, you need to discover for yourself which brand of arnica works best for your body. You can even visit a homeopathic doctor and determine with him or her which is best.
