NATURAL HEALTH MATTERS with Dr. Laurell
I tell nearly every parent I meet to keep homeopathic arnica around the house. Arnica is the classic homeopathic remedy for many types of boo-boos. It is used for bruises, sprains, and trauma due to falls. And, of course, kids aren’t the only ones who tend to hurt themselves.
It is also great for many types of soreness and pain. One night after spending a whole day sanding a deck, I woke up and was unable to go back to sleep because of the pain in my hands. My tired brain was able to remember the benefits of arnica. Amazingly it helped my pain enough that I was able to fall back to sleep. I hadn’t remembered that one of the traditional indications for arnica is cramps in the fingers. I just remembered if something hurts from overexertion, try arnica.**
Because we love this homeopathic so much, we make our Arnica Plus® to feature the benefits of this amazing flower. Additional supporting homeopathic ingredients along with a soothing herbal base make our Arnica Plus® an outstanding product.
And now it is even better. We were able incorporate a new creamier base that is free of the emulsifiers known as PEGs. Though we always sourced these ingredients from clean and petroleum free sources, many consumers avoid these compounds all together due to their risk of contamination if not obtained from high quality sources. More importantly, we have added a proprietary whey protein concentrate that may enhance rapid pain relief, as it acts as an enabler for these specific homeopathic ingredients to quickly penetrate to the inflammation site.
We urge you to try our newly reformulated Arnica Plus® to see how we have made a great product even better.
