Traumeel is a homeopathic medication developed in Germany by Heel. Several studies have shown the effectiveness of traumeel in the treatment of pain due to injuries. It is particularly effective in promoting healing while limiting inflammation. Traumeel is available in cream, gel, tablet, liquid drops, and prescription sterile injectable form. To treat an injury with traumeel, it is best to inject directly into the area of pain, apply traumeel gel to the area, and take orally traumeel drops.

Turmeric has been shown in research studies to stop inflammation and out perform most over the counter drugs for pain. Turmeric (aka curcumin) stops inflammation by stopping the inflammatory process in the cells. When inflammation occurs, Nf-kB is activated which turns on the inflammatory process in the cells which becomes chronically elevated. Research has shown that turmeric stops the Nf-kB activation in the cell. It is important to note that the best form of turmeric to use is liposomal turmeric, not powdered turmeric. Liposomal turmeric was shown to be 8 times more effective than powdered turmeric.

Managing the aging process is important for health, quality of life,
and physical appearance. As we age, our bodies undergo several changes
that have adverse effects on our body. Our tissues degrade and
degenerate as we accumulate toxins, sun damage, and more. Through
Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Diet, Life style, and nutritional therapies it is
possible to manage the aging process.
Not everyone is as healthy as they think they are. It is very rare to
find an individual that is in perfect health, has perfect balance, and
does not have excess toxin build up in their bodies. As we age, our
body’s undergo changes in the organ systems, changes to our posture,
accumulate toxins from our environment, and accumulate damage to the
skin from the Sun’s UV rays. It is possible to manage this complex
aging process with herbs, professional supplements, dietary changes,
lifestyle changes, regular massages, reduction in stress, regular
acupuncture treatments, and maintaining a healthy emotional wellbeing.
In the coming months I will be posting short articles on how to manage
your bodies aging process, what you can do to maintain a youthful
appearance, and how to improve your quality of life.
