I dabble in using homeopathic medicines from time to time, mostly when reccomended by my chiropractor. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. I like the whole concept of using a natural product that is completely safe. But honestly, sometimes you just can’t beat a swig of paracetamol.
The first time we used it J Boy had fallen off the top of a bunk bed and hit his head on the ladder, and the corner of a bedside table on the way down. He had an instant egg, (of very impressive proportions), developing on his head. I rubbed some of the cream on and the next day J Boy had only one bruise – it had been a tiny red mark after the incident and it was so small compared to all his other injuries that I had forgotten to put it on at the time. I was amazed! Over the years, we have consistently found that a little traumeel applied soon after a bump will result in the boys having no bruise the next day. It’s solved scraped knees, slammed fingers and bashed heads on concrete, tiles, posts or being hit over the head with a train by big brothers.
I even had some impressive bruises after my recent fall. Knowing how easily I bruise I know it would have been so much worse if I hadn’t used traumeel.
The Accountant also finds it really good to use after playing soccer, especially if he has been kicked in the shins or if his muscles are aching or strained. He finds it works far better than Deep Heat.
If you go to the Traumeel Website you should be able to find out how to get it, wherever you are in the world. If you are in Toowoomba you can pick it up from Healthguard Clinic on the corner of Stenner and Hume Streets.
PS. As much as I’d love to have a blog that is popular enough for me to receive some kickbacks, I don’t. So, I’m just letting you know about this because it’s a really great product, not because I’m receiving a lifetime supply of Traumeel for my reccomendation. (Although that would be nice, I’d even give out a few freebies if this were so!)
