Frequently asked Questions:
What is Arnica Montana?
Arnica montana is a medicine made from the plant of the same name. The plant has been used for centuries to treat the effects of falls in mountainous regions from the Alps to the Andes. the medicine, usually referred to simply as "arnica" is nown for its ability to relieve the minor aches, pains, and stiffness in muscles and joints associated with falls, blows, strains, sprains, sports injuries, and over-exercising. (Apply Arniflora Arnica Gel topically to the affected area for added releif.
What causes the inflammation that results from injury?
The inflammation is the result of a two-step process:
- Injury of some sort - physical, chemical, or biological - causes an excessive amount of blood to stretch the walls of the capillaries (tiny blood vessels).
- Fluid and white blood cells escape from the capillaries into the spaces between the cells in the surrounding area. The swelling which results causes stretching of the tissues and presses on nerve endings causing pain and adding to the stiffness that may follow the injury.
How does Arnica relieve pain and stiffness?
The way in which arnica works is not completely understood. One explanation is that it increases the flow of blood through the affected capillaries causing the escaped fluids to be absorbed. The absorption of the escaped fluids makes black-and-blue makrs go away faster and reduces the swelling, relieving the pressure on the nerve endings. this, in turn, relieves the pain and stiffness.
What is Homeopathy?
In 1796, samuel Hahnemann, a German physician and pharmacist, proposed a new set of healing principles as an alternative to conventional medicine. Homeopathy is based on the principle that the natural state of the body is one of health; human beings, like animals and plants, possess the ability to heal themselves. Homeopathic medicines, made from carefully selected plant, mineral, and organic ingredients, nurture your body's natural healing powers.
What's the difference between Homeopathy and conventional medicines?
Many conventional medicines attempt to suppress, symptoms without allowing the body to heal itself, sometimes resulting in harmful side effects. Homeopathy teaches us that symptoms are a respons to disease, causing imbalance in the body. Instead of suppressing symptoms, homeopathy gently works with the body to stimulate balance or healing Homeop;athy takes into account the unique characteristics of each individual and the symptoms experienced when ill, by offering a remedy to stimulate a healing response.
How safe are Homeopathic medicines?
In clinical studies, most homeopathic products have proven to be free of harmful side effects often experienced with conventional medications. Health-conscious people have learned to rely on the purity, safety and healing powers of homeopathic medicines, which are strictly regulated, as drugs, by the Food & Drug Administration. B&T Products are prepared homeopathically in accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS).
