Dr. Hauschka Review and Giveaway {closed}

Winning Comment #95 Congrats Tina!


Right before I got pregnant I sprained my shoulder pretty badly. It hurt like crazy! I went to the chiropractor 3 days a week and I took it easy. Needless to say, nothing was helping. Later that day I received a package from Dr. Hauschka that contained a few products for review. In this package was some Arnica Bump and Bruise Relief and a package of Arnica compresses.

I had never heard of Arnica before so I went online to Dr. Haushka's website and found some very useful information. "Arnica promotes your body's healing process by regulating circulation in the connective tissue, dispersing trapped fluids. Arnica temporarily relieves pain and swelling associated with bumps, bruises, sprains and general muscular discomfort. Arnica is a mountain plant. Its brilliant yellow blossoms grace the higher altitudes of central Europe, where it has long been revered within diverse folk traditions as a powerful healing plant. As a result, it has been given seemingly countless names. In the United States alone, arnica is known by many common names including Leopard's Bane, Wolf's Bane and Mountain Snuff."

I then contacted my sister-in-law who is a chiropractor. She simply told me "Arnica Rocks!" Well, I decided that I didn't have anything to lose (other than pain) so I took 10 of the Arnica Tablets and I waited. I didn't notice any change right away but then I remember about the compresses. I made my husband drape one across my shoulder and then lay a piece of Saran Wrap over it so it 1) wouldn't dry out 2) wouldn't stain my clothing 3) be more comfortable. I couldn't believe how AMAZING these compresses were. I only wore it for 4-5 minutes before I could actually feel some relief. They made me feel so much better. I was very impressed. It only took another 5 days before I was feeling 100% normal again.

I was tempted to use the compresses again the other day but when I went to get one I noticed a warning pertaining to pregnancy. The use of Arnica is not recommended during pregnancy. What a bummer. One thing I know for sure is that I will always have a few compresses and a bottles of Arnica Bump and Bruise Relief around the house!

About 2 months ago when my Mom was at the Drs office the Dr told her about Arnica Oil and all of it's great benefits. She bought a bottle for everyone in the family. My hubby used it on his shoulder that was aching and the pain was a lot less. He was amazed.

I would love to have the Eye Contour Day Balm.

I learned the Daily Revitalizing Etye Cream has Ananas Sativus (Pineapple) Fruit Extract
Pineapple fruit extract is rich in vitamins and minerals. It hydrates, gives the skin a pleasant, fresh feeling and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.

Looks wonderful!
