Attention Arthritis Sufferers!
Confused by all of the ridiculous claims being made on the Internet?
Wondering if the so called “miracle cures” really work?
Are you looking to reduce your dependence on dangerous prescription drugs to treat your arthritis?
We can help!
No matter what kind of arthritis you have…whether it’s osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or even gouty arthritis, you have some things in common with your fellow arthritis sufferers:
- You are in some level of pain
- The pain is caused, in part, by inflammation
- Prescription pain relievers have serious side effects
- You would like to find a safe pain reliever to compliment your over-the-counter or prescription pain reliever
What can you do?
At WisdomAndHealth, we’ve assembled a set of products that can compliment, or even reduce the amount of dangerous prescription drugs that you need to take for your arthritis.
More importantly, this letter can hopefully help you decide which product is best for your specific condition.
Ultimately, only you and your doctor can decide which is the best product for you. It may take some trial and error, but you can eventually land on the one or two products that work best for YOU.
So, let’s begin!
It is likely that your doctor may only recommend an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen, to be taken as needed. But just because it’s over the counter doesn’t mean it’s 100% safe. So it’s not too early to consider pain relievers that you can apply directly to the skin, at the source of the discomfort.
But which one?
We can offer you many options. Try progressing through these products in this order. Experiment a little and see what works. Eventually, you’ll hit on a product or two that works really well for you. Once you’ve found it, stick with it!
BioFreeze is simple, safe, and it works. The active ingredient is menthol. But, BioFreeze contains a special blend of ingredients
to help drive the menthol deep through the skin and into the areas where you need it. Apply it as a roll on (the most economical way) or directly from a tube 3-4 times a day.
If you decide to try BioFreeze, we recommend using it alongside your over-the-counter oral pain reliever. Then, try reducing the oral pain reliever to fewer times a day, or maybe every other day. Give BioFreeze a few weeks to see if it helps before giving up on it.
Like BioFreeze, Sombra Warm contains menthol. But is also contains camphor and a small amount of capsaicin. The combination of all three can really work wonders for arthritis sufferers. Many people actually prefer the pleasant scent of Sombra Warm to BioFreeze.
As with BioFreeze, give Sombra Warm a few weeks before giving up on it. Also try reducing any oral over-the-counter medicines while on the Sombra Warm.
Want to try something a bit more exotic? Traumeel is a great product that has been used in Europe for decades for arthritis pain. It comes as an ointment, a gel, and as an oral tablet. The tablets are taken 1-3 times a day for adults, and 1/2 tablets for children (they’re very safe, even for kids!).
Traumeel is a blend of herbal extracts which has been shown to help against many different forms of pain, including arthritis pain. If you’re taking an oral prescription or over-the-counter pain reliever, it is highly unlikely that you will run into any problems taking the two together.
But again, experiment a bit a see what works for you.
Here’s another idea. If you like warmth on your arthritic joints, try Salonpas patches. They come in a small 2.5 inch by 1.6 inch size, which are perfect to wrap around an arthritic knee or elbow, especially for overnight use. Just be careful peeling the patch off. It can be a little sticky!
In conclusion, you don’t have to suffer needlessly. With some trial and error and a little patience, you can find the right combination of arthritis pain relievers that will help you reduce your dependence on prescription or over-the-counter drugs, and you’ll feel better in the process!
