Natural pain relievers have been used for centuries, and naturopathic doctors have been able to apply them to a variety of conditions. They are a great choice for chronic pain sufferers who don't want to take potentially addictive painkillers or continually take NSAIDs that can damage your kidneys and liver over time. The use of herbal remedies can eliminate or help with chronic pain and improve mood and mental health. Doctor Hoy's is happy to provide products that can help achieve this.
Unlike prescription drugs, natural pain relief gels and creams do not harm the body or create potentially harmful side effects. Furthermore, natural methods can improve mental and vascular functions. In contrast, taking artificial medication for a long time can result in dependency, which can have serious consequences. Using alternative remedies in tandem with consulting a doctor who can prescribe a treatment plan is beneficial for many.
Homeopathic, natural remedies have been used for centuries. They can help relieve pain, improve mood, and are a great choice for a number of different conditions.
Medicinal herbs are another good option for natural pain relief products. They may be a good alternative to artificial pain medications for those suffering from a variety of ailments. Anti-inflammatory menthol stimulates blood flow and has a relieving feel to the skin. Arnica is a great homeopathic herbal remedy for pain, bruises, and swelling. The key is finding the right one for your unique situation. Once you have found a treatment plan that works for you, try it!
One of the active ingredients in Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel (also available in a roll-on pain relief applicator) is menthol, which induces a pleasant tingling and cooling sensation when applied topically and has an anti-inflammatory component. Consequently, it is an effective ingredient in various health and beauty applications. However, common menthol products prove difficult to manufacture because the overall potency does not last long. Menthol crystals normally evaporate quickly when exposed to air or skin. Often, menthol is combined with petroleum jelly to help it float on the skin longer, but this option is limited and greasy. Additionally, synthetic menthol usually has a strong and undesirable medicinal odor when mixed with other scents. Doctor Hoy's has retained the benefits of menthol and avoided all the negatives of oily or greasy creams, using witch hazel and a water-based formula to draw the ingredients deep into the skin. The short potency of menthol is solved by adopting a time-release encapsulation of the menthol, leaving a quick-drying application with hours of liberating pain relief from this product!
Doctor Hoy's (aptly named) Arnica Boost features Arnica as its active ingredient. Arnica Montana is a yellow mountain daisy, sometimes called wolf’s bane or leopard’s bane. It is native to areas of Europe, North America, Northern Asia, and Siberia. Traditionally, Swiss mountaineers used this hearty plant to prevent muscle soreness. For centuries, Arnica Montana has proven an important medicinal plant as it has been used widely in the treatment of pain. An evaluation of Arnica Montana shows that it has antibacterial, anti-tumor, and antioxidant activity. It also contains anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties. These therapeutic benefits happen when the plant is simply rubbed on the skin of the affected area. Arnica encourages and stimulates increased blood circulation. This provides oxygen and nutrients to support healing, while also carrying away waste. These remarkable healing qualities are the reason Arnica has been used throughout the ages to treat inflammation, wounds, hematomas, bruises, and more.
