Nelsons homoeopathic products are natural remedies that are based on treatments that have been passed down over generations.
They bring traditional remedies into the modern age by using natural and herbal ingredients whose beneficial properties have been recognised for centuries.
Nelsons Arnicare Arnica Cream is made with arnica montana, a yellow flowering herb that has been used as a herbal medicine for centuries.
It was traditionally used for analgesic and anti-inflammatory purposes.
In modern times, arnica montana is a popular treatment in homoeopathy used to treat bruises and swelling, sometimes as an alternative to lasonil cream.
It has been found to have beneficial effects in treating the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
It is believed to speed up the healing process by stimulating your body to send more white blood cells to the affected area.
The active components of arnica include sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids which are known to reduce inflammation and ease pain.
It also contains thymol, an essential oil that acts as an antiseptic.
Pills or creams containing arnica are often recommended for dealing with symptoms of postpartum or post surgery bruising.
Homoeopaths tend to recommend oral tablets for more severe issues and the topical gels and creams for more minor pain and bruising.
