We love hearing your success stories. This one's from Christine, who came in enquiring about pain relief after a nasty injury...

The Pain Relief Miracle

At Apothecary 27, we like to back up our product knowledge with experience. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always mean indulging in the latest yummy snacks or luscious skin balms…here we share some case studies from our own Apothecary 27 team, starting with Christine...

 

Christine’s Sprain Pain

“I took a bad tumble at the end of a run, resulting in a sprained ankle and fractured foot. After I was put in a solid Velcro boot at Minor Injuries, I picked up some Ainsworth Arnica tablets from the shop. The swelling went down so quickly! The doctor was impressed with my recovery when I went to the follow-up fracture clinic.

But the rest of my body still held some trauma. I found sleep more difficult – I would wake with deep aches in my hip joints and some sharp pain in my calf muscle. Back to the shop…

This time it was Pukka Wholistic Turmeric to the rescue. Expecting a few days before the supplements had any effect, I was so surprised by how immediately I felt relief – I slept through the night after taking my first dose! I am now out of the boot and will be ready to dance at the Christmas party!”

Arnica can reduce inflammation and swelling as well as soothe muscle aches. Turmeric is a known anti-inflammatory, used for ailments ranging from digestion problems to muscle cramps. Research has revealed that this wonder herb affects pain receptors in the body.
