Another triumph!, 20th Dec 2009

Reviewer: Julie Goodwin

My friend's extremely active 71-year old uncle recently had a bad fall which left him bruised, shaken and sore. I immediately recommended Atrogel, as well as suggesting a good physiotherapist who's also a craniosacral therapist. Atrogel is so useful in these situations, where it's important to address the swelling after injury as quickly as possible. The pain and bruising that accompany a fall can be swiftly addressed so as not to cause undue distress. Atro-Bath Oil is wonderfully soothing too if you like to ease your aches and pains by wallowing in a bath. My uncle has now told me that everyone who has heard of his fall has recommended Atrogel to him! It's good to know that its fame is so widespread.

A friend who was doing some earnest autumnal gardening on Friday, disturbed a peevish wasp who indicated its displeasure by stinging him so viciously that his hand swelled alarmingly. He's not prone to strong reactions and was surprised when it still hadn't gone down by Saturday afternoon. At this stage he remembered Atrogel and applied it, to see the swelling collapse within a couple of hours.

Atrogel is fantastic for bumble bee stings, took the pain away almost instantly. Obviously, if you are allergic to stings seek medical advice!

Why Operate?

Canadian research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has shown that knee arthroscopy (making incisions in the knee through which to pull out loose cartilage and smooth joint surfaces) in patients with arthritis of the knee has no more effect than physiotherapy and painkillers.

According to the Arthritis Research Campaign and NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), there is no reason for performing the operation on anyone unless they have severe osteoarthritis where the knee is locked in position.

The problem for doctors is that there are very few options for them when it comes to treating arthritic patients. They have limited access to physiotherapists and conventional painkillers are mostly associated with unpleasant side effects or lack of long term efficacy.

Atrosan Devil’s Claw tablets and Atrogel Arnica Gel are excellent options, free from upsetting side effects and capable of working for as long as they are needed.

A gentleman took a sample of Atrogel Arnica Gel with disbelief writ large on his countenance. Barely 15 minutes later he was back to buy a tube. He'd tried it and yes, it really does convince people that fast!
