Since I always come to a gardening forum for medical advice, has anyone
Does it work? Is it safe and effective?
Actually, it makes perfect sense to ask here, as NOTHING makes me so
stiff and sore as gardening, to the point where I wonder how long I can
keep it up. If something could REALLY take away the pain without
destroying my liver, it could be just what I need! Thanks for any
That shows how much you know.
There are people here who can give an honest answer to an honest
question. They just aren't necessarily the first ones to respond.
The fact that it's homeopathic gives me pause, but a lot of people seem
to swear by it. Just wondered if anyone who actually tried it would be
willing to give a statement, or if anyone knows of any sort of study
that may have been done on it.
Hadn't followed the url that far but homeopathic says it all.
Homeopathy is junk science.
I avoid everything labeled homeopathic. Best you can hope for is a
placebo effect which in this case, is pretty expensive at ~$20/bottle.
Okay, I think I asked the wrong question. What I should have said was,
"Does anyone know something that IS safe and effective and does what
this stuff CLAIMS to do?" Right now I'm popping several Tylenol
Arthritis a day (hence the remark about being concerned with my liver)
and rubbing on Sportscreme, a pretty effective pain ointment with no
unpleasant odor, but still, the more I do, the more it hurts. I am
considering consulting a chiropractor and massage therapist, which
compared to buying a bottle of stuff, even for $20.00, still seems
pretty expensive. So am open to other suggestions, thanks.
An NSAID (Aspirin, Ibuprofen,etc.)would be better than Tylenol if you
have inflammation I think. Also, you could try a capsaicin creme but it
requires building up and then mainatining the dose.
Also, don't ignore the possibility that visiting an arthritis specialist
might be a good idea.
What I finally ended up doing was consulting a couple of doctors who
expressed extreme skepticism of the effectiveness of homeopathic
medicine. My family physician prescribed an antispasmodic which seems
to work fine. It doesn't conflict with the Tylenol, but I cut way back
on the Tylenol so as not to overdo it and to test how effective the
prescription medicine was. Now I can at least do things the thought of
which gave me extreme pause before due to the pain. I am thinking of
consulting a chiropractor about other issues.
