Arnica Gel Helps
Hi Everyone, My son gets migraine. He’s 11, and has been getting them for years. We've tried everything other than prescription medication. The only things that seem to work are ICE & ANTI-INFLAMMATORY type of medication. I'm leery of giving him over-the-counter OTC medications on a consistent basis. So, I tried natural remedies that I knew had anti-inflammatory properties. My first thought was Arnica. So, I started out with the sublingual type. It seemed to help a little at the first onset of a headache, but if it turned into a migraine, it didn't seem to be strong enough. So, then I thought why not put the medication at the source of the pain? The next time I applied ARNICA GEL to his forehead, temples, and back of the neck. It didn't cure him, but it really seemed to help offer him some relief, plus an ice pack (always an icepack.) I'm now going to try it on his jaw area as well. I just found out that the jaw area might also be a trigger point. My son now begs for the Arnica Gel as soon as he starts to have symptoms of a migraine. This is a natural remedy, so you have to re-apply often. I hope this helps!
