Today I want to share my secret weapon for fighting pain. I normally yell about how good this product is from the mountain tops, and cannot believe that I have not mentioned it earlier! Forgive me for being remiss and get comfy whilst I give you a glimpse into what Traumeel is, how it can help and the key natural ingredients and their characteristics.
What is Traumeel?
Traumeel is an inflammation regulating drug (IRD), as well as an analgesic. It is used for sprained joints, strained/pulled muscles, bruises, nerve pain, swelling, post-surgical pain and promotes wound healing and is used widely in sports medicine. Whilst it is an effective medication for acute injuries and inflammation of the musculoskeletal system, it avoids the notoriously serious side-effects of common anti-inflammatory therapies. Because of that it can be used in conjunction with any other medication and all age groups from babies to the elderly. It comes in the form of ointment, gels, tablets, injection solutions and drops.
I religiously use the cream for treating my fibromyalgia by applying the cream onto the affected area and the tablets (which dissolve under your tongue) for all my internal inflammation i.e. my spleen and kidneys. Within 5 minutes the pain either disappears or dulls. I have sent copious quantities to friends and families all over the world and it has been a great success.
Key natural ingredients and their characteristics
Traumeel contains the following: (Where I can I have added some interesting historical facts to make for more interesting reading)
Achillea millefolium (yarrow) has a long history as a powerful healing herb. It aids in inflammation and headaches, speeds up recovery from severe bruising, brings down fevers act as a tonic for the blood, stimulates the circulation, eliminate toxins from the body.
Aconitum napellus (monkshood) aids fever with hot, dry skin, neuralgia, inflammatory rheumatism; improvement of the vasotonia; analgesic, hemostatic.
Arnica montana (mountain arnica) stimulates the healing of wounds, fractures, dislocations, contusions, hematomas, myocardial weakness, neuralgia, myalgia, analgesic, hemostatic. When used topically in a gel, arnica was found to have the same effect as the use of NSAIDs (ibuprofen) in treating the symptoms of hand osteoarthritis. Arnica is currently used in liniment and ointment preparations used for strains, sprains, and bruises. Commercial arnica preparations are frequently used by professional athletes.
Atropa belladonna (deadly nightshade) has been used in traditional treatments for centuries for an assortment of conditions including headache, menstrual symptoms, peptic ulcer disease, histaminic reaction, inflammation, motion sickness, localized reaction phases, cerebral sensitivity with cramp and delirium.

In ancient Rome, the surgeons who accompanied Roman legions into battle would order their slaves to pick sacks full of daisies in order to extract their juice.

Echinacea is popularly believed to be an immunostimulator, stimulating the body’s non-specific immune system and warding off infections. Whilst Native American tribes didn’t use echinacea to prevent the common cold, some Plains tribes did to treat some of the symptoms that could be caused by the common cold: The Kiowa used it for coughs and sore throats, the Cheyenne for sore throats, the Pawnee for headaches, and many tribes including the Lakotah used it as an analgesic.
