I am recovering from a recent injury and thought I should share this stuff with you guys. Maybe you have heard of it, but I never had. Its a homeopathic gel that is supposed to help with muscle pain & stiffness, swelling from injuries, and bruising.
I was skeptical that this hippy business would do any good, but it is proving to be amazing. It's made my bruising go down tremendously and really helps with stiffness & swelling in localized areas! I could see it being really useful on a kiteboarding trip if you had a stiff ankle or knee that could use a little relief. I would say it works as well as ibuprofen, but doesn't rot out your gut!
My favorite part, I dont think it has any side effects with my other favorite aches and pain remedy, good ol' IPA.
