Hey Ladies!! been a while since i posted. i think i'm on my 8th week of recovery and i was wondering about natural anti-inflammatories. i've been very lucky w/ recovery and have even lost 25lbs!! i still get extremely exhausted doing anything but i'm not giving up on myself.

i used to use arnica gel for bruising back when i was playing on three co-ed soccer teams - i bruise easily - and it was a big help. just wondering if anyone has used arnica tablets or anything else for swelling....

thanks!!!!!

I have used Traumeel cream for soreness (joints), but nothing to take internally. I would think ice would help swelling depending where the swelling is.

I found it took anywhere from 6 mos. to a year before I had my energy back . It takes time to heal , be patient, it will come.

It is a good idea to check with dr before taking anything , just to be on the safe side.

Take care

Everyone should check with their doctors.
IMO, because Arnica is usually a homeopathic remedy, when ingested, it couldn't hurt.
My kids always played soccer and arnica cream for external bruises was standard in our first aid kit and medicine cabinet. It works wonders.
Boswella and other herbs help too. I'll ask DH and DD if they remember all of them. One of DD's old soccer coaches was also a naturopath.
