Tired of medication side effects as you give your body what it needs to get pain free? The good news is that a new topical pain cream can be very helpful, and we've been getting awesome feedback from folks!
The cream? Comfrey, also known as TraumaPlant!
Comfrey used to be called "Bone-knit" and has a long history of use for trauma and wound healing. The concern was that the herb itself was a double-edged sword, having a mix of healthy and unhealthy components. This problem has now been overcome, with a new plant strain having only the healthy component.
And it has been worth waiting for!
In one double blind study looking at its effectiveness in muscle pain (low back pain in this study) it was dramatically effective, affirming what we are seeing day to day. Another study found it to be highly effective in neck muscle pain.
In addition to being excellent for pain, comfrey also helps:
- Wound healing
- Joint pain and swelling from injuries[4,5]
- Muscle pain
Comfrey (TraumaPlant) can be used in combination with other oral and topical treatments, both natural and prescription. I like to combine it with Curamin and End Pain for 6 weeks (using all three 3x per day to see the full effect), then being able to lower the dose of both the pain medications, and natural remedies. I do this while treating the root cause of the pain with S.H.I.N.E.
This topical comfrey is safe and effective for adults and children. Apply liberally several times a day. Using this approach, most people get good pain relief, most often becoming pain free.
You can become pain free too!
