As someone who suffers from an auto-immune disorder, I am constantly on the search for alternative pain relief methods. I carefully monitor my diet and what I put on to my body, since I have found that certain ingredients and foods can exacerbate my vulardynia. The worst symptom are those muscle cramps and aches that seem to come from nowhere. Besides popping ibuprofen like candy, I haven’t really found something that helps. So when Tropricin asked me if I wanted to try out their topical homepathic Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream, I was gungho.
Tropricin was originally developed to treat the muscle pain of its’ developer and since going on the market it has been used sucessfully by firbomyalgia patients. It definitely lessened what I call the “stabbies”, allowing me to get to sleep at night. But what I have really found myself using it for is the shoulder and back pain I get from carrying my four year old twins around (I know they shouldn’t be carried anymore but sometimes that’s the fastest way to get them from point a to point b.) I am thinking about snagging the travel size so I could throw it in my purse.
Other stuff I think is cool: the company also has a junior cream for use on kids. I am looking forward to trying it out on them for those “I need a bandaid” moments after they run into furniture or fall down. The rule in our house is no blood, no bandaid and I think the cream could be the answer to the medicine wants while also helping them feel better. The cream has the Heathy Child, Healthy World seal of approval. The company also makes a formula for foot pain. You can find Topricin on their website, Twitter, and Facebook.
Is there a natural pain reliever you use? I’d love to hear about it!!
Disclosure: I received a sampling of Topricin products for review. Opinions, as always, are my own. I only blog about products that I personally have used and feel comfortable recommending.
