  1. Don't Let Musculoskeletal Pain Dominate Your Life

    pain MusculoskeletalIf you’re suffering from short-term or ongoing musculoskeletal pain, you know how all-encompassing it can be.

    Every day, every position, everything can hurt.

    It’s easy to let your whole world be controlled by the discomfort.

    Decisions get made on what will hurt less.

    Plans get cancelled because you just can’t risk it.

    You know the routine, and you know it’s no way to live.

    But you don’t have to. We promise…

    What IS Musculoskeletal Pain?

    In spite of the fancy name, musculoskeletal pain is actually really easy to understand – it’s any pain in the muscles, ligaments, tendons and/or bones.

    Your whole body may ache. The pain may make sleeping difficult, so you’re tired all the time. But even when you do rest, you’re still fatigued because the pain drains you.

    Sound familiar? If so, then you’re probably dealing with musculoskeletal pain, even if you never know that name for it.

    What Causes Musculoskeletal Pain?

    The truth is that there are almost as many reasons for musculoskeletal pain as there are people suffering from it. It can be:

    • Wear and tear of everyday life
    • Injury or trauma
    • Overuse OR underuse
    • Poor posture
    • Sedentary lifestyle…

    The list goes on and on. Because there are also specific health conditions that can cause musculoskeletal pain. Conditions like

    • Arthritis
    • Back pain
    • Repetitive strain injury
    • Muscle spam

    Having a name to put to your pain is good news, but perhaps the even better news is that there is something you can do about it.

    How to Treat Musculoskeletal Pain

    The traditional treatment for musculoskeletal pain is NSAIDs – but they come with all the questionable and downright scary side effects.

    Instead of popping an over-the-counter pain pill – or even worse, a prescription pain killer – treat musculoskeletal pain effectively AND safely, with these all-natural treatments…

    Temperature therapy – Ice packs and heating pads can be your best friend when you’re in pain. The key is to use them wisely.
    If your musculoskeletal pain is new, sharp, or accompanied by swelling, you’re going to want to reach for ice (and depending on how and when it started, check in with a doctor). A good, general rule is to use ice for the first two or three days, then move to heat. If, however, your pain has been around longer than that, you know it’s being caused by tension in the muscles and ligaments, then heat may be the way to go. Where ice constricts blood flow and numbs pain, heat helps relax and soothe tight, sore muscles and attachments.

    Exercise – If you just groaned at the thought of hitting the gym or running a marathon because you hurt too badly, stop worrying! That’s not the kind of exercise you need when you’re dealing with musculoskeletal pain. Instead, you’re aiming for more gentle exercises that won’t exacerbate your condition. Stretching, swimming, easy walking. Even tai chi or yoga classes can be very helpful. Eventually, work your way up to simple strength exercises, so that you’re giving your muscles, bones, and joints the support they need to keep you strong.

    Massage therapy – Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to relieve musculoskeletal pain. Depending on the massage therapist you go to, they may use long, firm strokes to help relax the muscles and attachments, or they may use firm, strong pressure to release knots. Either way, talk to your massage therapist, explain your condition, and they will be able to make recommendations that will help ease your pain.

    Topical pain relievers – Topical pain relievers are better for musculoskeletal pain than pain pills for many reasons. First, you can get all-natural pain relievers that have serious medication working in them – menthol and capsaicin. Just as importantly, you can use exactly the amount of pain reliever you need on the exactly source of your pain. You don’t have to flood your whole system with pain medication just because your knees hurt. And because you put the topical pain reliever directly on the site of your pain, it gets absorbed faster and goes to work almost immediately, instead of you having to wait for it to work its way through your system before it can be effective. So, find a topical pain reliever, like Soothanol X2, and get the powerful medication your pain needs, without the scary side effects.

    Musculoskeletal pain can be debilitating – but it doesn’t have to be. Take your life back, with these tips and Soothanol X2.

  2. 5 Muscle Trigger Points to Ease Pain

    trigger points muscleWhen you’re in pain, you want it to stop. That’s a given.

    But when you have long-term, ongoing pain, you know it’s not always as easy as popping a pill.

    After all, you want the pain to stop, but you don’t want to live your life constantly on medications, either.

    That’s what makes muscle trigger points that ease pain such an important tool in your pain management skill set.

    They are a completely natural, medication-free way of easing pain.

    You read that correctly: muscle trigger points do not use medicine to ease your pain.

    If you’re familiar with acupressure, those are the muscle trigger points we’re talking about.

    If you’re not familiar, or you want to know more, here’s how it works…

    A 2,000 Year Old Pain Remedy

    Using muscle trigger points, or acupressure, to ease pain has been practiced for more than 2,000 years, so you know it works – even if it doesn’t seem like it would be effective.

    The pressure on the muscle trigger points helps to relax the muscles and stimulate blood flow, so you end up relieving pain, sometimes in entirely different parts of the body.

    The key is to be patient and consistent. Hold steady firm pressure on the muscle trigger point for a full minute. Then massage in a firm, circular motion for at least another thirty seconds.

    And since there is absolutely no medicine involved, you can activate your muscle triggers points whenever and for however long you want!

    Where’s the Pain and Where’s the Muscle Trigger Point

    1. Neck Pain. If you’ve moved it too fast, or slept on it the wrong way, neck pain inhibits your whole day. When you can’t turn your head without pain, it’s hard to do anything else without pain!

    Try any or all of these three muscle trigger points to get you moving again.

    Inside wrist – Find the spot where your thumb and wrist connect. Now, measure approximately two finger widths up your forearm from there. That’s the muscle trigger point.

    Top of wrist – Feel where the bones of your forearm reach your wrist. You’ll find a small indentation. That’s the muscle trigger point, and where you want to put firm, but gentle, pressure.

    Between thumb and index finger – You know that fatty web between your thumb and forefinger? It’s a muscle trigger point. Squeeze that web between your other thumb and forefinger for best results.

    Note: this muscle trigger point works to relieve pain throughout most of your body. It will be mentioned throughout this article and makes an excellent starting place, no matter where your pain is.

    2. Shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can be difficult to treat because it’s difficult to get to. But not if you’re using muscle trigger points! So if you’re dealing with arthritis in the shoulder, or if you just lifted something too heavy, these three techniques will relieve even the deepest shoulder pain.

    Front shoulder – One of the few muscle trigger points located on the site of pain, you can relieve shoulder pain by putting pressure at the right place on your shoulder. Cross your arm over your chest, so the elbow bends at about a 90* angle. You’ll be able to feel a vertical groove at the front of your shoulder. Massage the center of this groove.

    Back of pinkie finger – Rest your hand on a table or your knee. Don’t worry about getting it perfectly flat. It may be easier to see the place if your fingers are in a natural position. You’ll find a groove between your pinkie and ring fingers. That’s the muscle trigger point. Yes, for your shoulder.

    Thumb and index finger – The web works for shoulder pain, as well.

    3. Upper back pain. If you spend too much time hunched over a computer or smart phone, you’re probably far too familiar with upper back pain already. Luckily, you’ve already learned how to alleviate that pain.

    Back of pinkie finger – The same muscle trigger point that helps ease shoulder pain can help relieve upper back pain. Find that groove between your pinkie and ring finger and press firmly for a minute or so.

    4. Lower back pain. Like shoulder pain, and perhaps even moreso, lower back pain can take over your whole day. Every move hurts. But it doesn’t have to be this way any longer.

    Either side of spine – You’ve probably dug your thumbs into this muscle trigger point before to help with lower back pain. It’s instinctive because it works. You’re aiming for your back, at about belly button level. Measure approximately two inches out from your spine, on both sides. Those are the spots that will help.

    Just above the hips – From those muscle trigger points, slide your thumbs down until they rest just above your hips. These are two more spots that will respond to pressure.

    Top of foot – Given that sandal season is wrapping up, you may need to work on this muscle trigger point at home. Start with your foot flat on the floor, and find where your big toe and second toe meet. Slide your finger down that groove along the top of your foot until you reach the place where the two bones meet in a V. The muscle trigger point is right in the crux of the V.

    Thumb and index finger – Yes, this one works for lower back pain, too!

    5. Knee pain. One of the most common places for arthritis pain is the knee. You keep moving it, so it doesn’t stiffen up, and that’s good, but you also just need pain relief. Try these…

    Shin – Start at your knee cap. Slide your thumb down, approximately four inches. Find the outside of your shin bone. Move your foot up and down. You should feel a muscle “popping out” underneath your thumb. That’s how to tell if you’ve found the right place.

    Thumb and index finger – As always, this is a good muscle trigger point for knee pain, as well.

    And for the final touch, combine muscle trigger point massage with Soothanol X2 for a one-two combination that will give you long-term pain relief, without pills or scary medications.

    No need to worry about where you are when pain strikes, or when you last took a pill. Muscle trigger point massage and Soothanol X2 – live the natural, pain-free life you’ve been longing for!

    “When I wake up, I rub the cream on the front and back of my right leg and just around the knee on my left leg. Usually, I have no pain all day long. I don’t know of any cream that can go that deep and actually relieve pain.”

    Arthritis Cream Reviews: Whenever it Hurts

    “I am very satisfied with the Arthritis Relief Cream…I am 51 years old and play competitive softball.  For months I was unable to find relief for (my) knee. Using … Arthritis Relief Cream on my knee I was able to find relief and my leg now feels better than ever!”

    In fact, Dan Dickerson keeps Arthritis Relief Cream around even now that his chronic pain has passed...

    As a martial artist training several days per week, it has been very effective for aches and pains in joints and muscles. Specifically I had the lateral area of both elbows literally bothering me for 2 years in spite of all kinds of treatments, including ‘alternative treatments.’  I used Arthritis Relief Cream twice daily religiously. There was an immediate relief upon application, but after about 3-4 weeks the discomfort no longer returned even after training sessions. I still use on both elbows as a preventative whenever my elbows have been cranked-on hard during training. I use on other areas with similar response.”

    And yes, Arthritis Relief Cream will work on your arthritis pain. Just listen to this arthritis cream review from Sheena Davis of Little Rock, and her husband – and their friends…

  16. [VIDEO] Menthol Oil – Fast, Safe, & Effective Topical Pain Relief

    menthol oil Menthol. You know that comforting smell anywhere – it means pain relief is on the way. Nothing else has that cooling sensation when it touches your skin – or makes you feel better faster. But while menthol is one of the most well-known, powerful, over-the-counter ingredients available for pain, you may not actually know that much about this effective pain reliever… What is Menthol Oil? Menthol oil is derived from mint plants, such as peppermint, which is why you get the same cooling on your skin as you get in your mouth when you take a strong breath mint. Menthol has been approved by the FDA as an effective treatment for many aches and pains. In pain relievers, menthol oil acts as a counterirritant – which means that cooling sensation you feel is actually distracting your body from the other pain. As crazy as it sounds, that’s how a pain reliever with menthol makes your sore muscles and achy joints feel better. How to Use Menthol Oil The most common, medical use of menthol oil is as a topical pain reliever. Depending on the product, it comes in creams, gels, or liquids. Usually it only takes a small amount of menthol oil, rubbed directly on to the pain. The menthol starts to go to work almost immediately. That’s how strong and effective it is. It can also be safely combined with other pain relievers, like capsaicin or salicylates. In fact, in combination with capsaicin, menthol can contribute to a real one-two punch of a pain killer. Side Effects of Menthol Luckily, there are no common side effects to using topical menthol oil. How often do you hear that? Some people may find the smell a bit strong, or not care for the cooling response. But that’s a matter of personal preference, not so much a side effect. This safety and effectiveness is why we made menthol, along with capsaicin, the building blocks of Soothanol X2 topical pain relief formula. Soothanol X2 with menthol brings you cooling relief you won’t find in any other ingredient. Just 2 drops of Soothanol X2 is all it takes to…
    • Relieve your pain almost immediately
    • Move easier and more freely
    • Get back to your busy life, without worrying about how much you hurt!
    How menthol oil works and where it comes from may be interesting. But let’s be honest -- when you’re hurting, all you really need to know is that it will work. Which is why you should reach for Soothanol X2, no matter where you hurt. Take a few minutes to watch this brief video. You’ll see why Soothanol X2 with menthol oil is the best topical pain reliever for all of your aches and pains. Because not only does Soothanol X2 have the cooling ability of menthol, but it also comes backed by our Gold Standard Guarantee. On the off chance that Soothanol X2, or the menthol it’s built on, don’t work for you, we’ll refund the purchase price of every bottle. That’s how sure we are that it will work for you.

  17. [VIDEO] Capsaicin Extract: Topical Pain Relief Superstar

    capsaicin extract Capsaicin extract is a superstar ingredient used in many topical pain relievers. Capsaicin extract works on all kinds of joint and muscle pain. Perhaps more importantly, it goes to work almost immediately. The very first time you use capsaicin extract, you’ll be amazed at the warm relief. That warmth is your indication that the extract is working, and it means your pain is about to go away, fast. When you have sore muscles, or stiff joints, a few drops of capsaicin extract are all it takes to speed heat to the source of your pain. But what makes capsaicin extract so effective? What is Capsaicin? Capsaicin is warm because it comes from chili peppers – the kind that add spice to your foods. It’s been used as a topical pain reliever for centuries, most notably by the Native Americans. They would rub chili peppers on their gums to treat toothaches. In the 1800s, several chemists were working at extracting capsaicin, but it wasn’t until 1898 that Karl Micko first isolated capsaicin extract in its pure form. Today, it is a common ingredient in many topical pain relievers. How Does Capsaicin Extract Work? So how does oil from a pepper become a pain relieving ingredient? It goes to work 2 ways:  first, by “communicating” with nerve endings, and then by “distracting” your body from the original pain. When it “communicates” with the nerve endings, in essence, it calms the nerves, which reduces the intensity of the pain. But capsaicin also acts as a counterirritant, which is where the distraction comes in. Counterirritants, in this case the warmth from capsaicin, literally distract your body from the original pain. In other words, your body is too busy feeling the warmth to be bothered with feeling the pain any longer. This two-pronged approach to pain relief makes capsaicin extract a powerhouse ingredient by itself. It can also be used in combination with other pain relieving ingredients, such as menthol, to take pain relief to the next level. Are There Side Effects of Capsaicin Extract? Capsaicin extract is incredibly safe, with limited side effects. In fact, the most common complaint is that the warming sensation is a little too much for some people. But if you’re still concerned, or need to know more about drug interactions, a quick chat with your doctor should put your mind at ease. Where Can I Use Capsaicin Extract? You can use capsaicin extract wherever your body hurts. It’s effective on sore muscles, achy joints, or anywhere else you’re stiff and uncomfortable. Which is why we included it in our best-selling topical pain reliever, Soothanol X2. Soothanol X2 combines capsaicin with menthol – another powerful pain reliever – to create the ultimate, fast-acting topical pain reliever. With 2 of the strongest, natural pain relievers ever known, and supporting ingredients that help you feel better fast, Soothanol X2 works reliably and quickly. And you’ll know it because you’ll feel the capsaicin extract’s warm, soothing sensation go straight to the source of your pain starting the moment you apply it. From stiff necks, to sore knees, and everywhere in between Soothanol X2 will rush pain relief wherever you need it. And, unlike pills, it’s absorbed quickly, easing your pain in seconds rather than 15 minutes, 20 minutes – or more! Capsaicin extract is powerful, safe, and has very few side effects, just like Soothanol X2. Take a few minutes to watch this brief video.

  18. [VIDEO] What Are the Best Options for Upper Back Pain Relief?

    In most commercials and ads that talk about back pain, they show a person grabbing at their lower back. But you know better. You know that’s not the only kind of back pain there is. Upper back pain can be just as unbearable, just as debilitating, as any lower back pain. And we know it, too. That’s why we made sure that Soothanol X2 is as effective at upper back pain relief as it is on all kinds of pain. Causes of Upper Back Pain Upper back pain is frequently caused by one of three problems…
    1. Muscle Strain often happens when you “pull something” during a workout, or while working. If you sleep in the wrong position, and wake up achy. Generally, muscle strain (or injury, or overuse) is what most of us feel when we roll our shoulders and wish our backs didn’t hurt so much.
    2. Poor Posture is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s also easy to forget. Sitting or standing with our shoulders curved over or our heads down creates strain on our muscles. This strain can result in short, or long-term, pain. Work on straightening your spine, keeping your shoulders back, and your head held high to prevent posture-induced pain.
    3. Myofascial Pain is pain that is in the connective tissue around a muscle, rather than in the muscle itself. It can be caused by overexertion, as well as poor posture, too.
    Soothanol X2: Fast, Safe Upper Back Pain Relief Regardless of which of these is causing your pain, relief is as close as Soothanol X2 topical pain reliever. But aren’t topical pain relievers just for arthritis? Or a pulled muscle? After all, those are the conditions everyone always says topical pain relievers are good for, right? Well, yes, topical pain relievers are good for arthritis. And they are good for pulled muscles. But that’s not all a topical pain reliever is good for.

  19. [VIDEO] What’s the Best Treatment for Lower Back Pain Relief?

    If you have lower back pain, you know how disheartening the routine is. You sit for too long, your lower back hurts. You stand for too long, your lower back hurts. On the golf course, in the garden, chatting with friends, or playing with the grandkids – your lower back hurts. And the more doing the things you love hurts, the less you want to do the things you love. But Soothanol X2 can get you back in the swing of things, and not just keeping up, but leading the way! What Causes Lower Back Pain? Doing too much. It’s easy to strain our backs if we don’t take care of ourselves. Walking in shoes with too little support … lifting heavy items with our backs instead of our legs … overdoing it on the weekends, or without warming our muscles up… All of these things seem innocent enough, but can result in painful injuries. Doing too little. Like any muscle, if we don’t use the muscles in our backs, they get weak. Once they get weak, they can be hurt easily. Just sitting around for long periods of time may feel good at first, but will hurt in the long run. Arthritis – and not just in your back! Arthritis in the back can be debilitating. But even if you don’t have arthritis in your back, doesn’t mean your back isn’t affected by arthritis. If you have arthritis in your hips, knees, or ankles, it can affect the way you walk. As you compensate for the pain in your legs, you end up tweaking your lower back. It’s a vicious cycle. Soothanol X2: The Best Topical Pain Reliever for Lower Back Pain But Soothanol X2 can break that cycle of pain. Just a few drops rushes menthol and capsaicin into the muscles, easing the pain, bringing almost immediate relief. That’s right – immediate relief, as in less than 60 seconds! That’s the power of the active ingredients, menthol and capsaicin. The menthol cools, while the capsaicin warms, working on the muscles that need relaxing. But it’s not just the active ingredients that are vital to lower back pain relief. Even the supporting ingredients work wonders. And unlike in some other products, they do more than just smell or feel good. The supporting ingredients in Soothanol X2 are specially designed to speed the absorption of the liquid into your skin, directly to the muscles that ache. And this specially designed formula – of active and supporting ingredients – usually lasts for hours, but can be used up to 5 times a day if necessary. Because it’s easy to bend, or twist, or lift, and trigger that pain again. So if that happens, you aren’t stuck waiting for hours until you can take another pain pill. Instead, you can rub more Soothanol X2 right where it hurts, right when it hurts, and feel the fast, soothing lower back pain relief all over again. The 2 most powerful active ingredients, combined with strong, supportive ingredients, in a formula that you can use for every reason you might have lower back pain.

  20. [VIDEO] Best Topical Pain Reliever for Arthritis Hip Pain

    Although you know arthritis hip pain may feel more debilitating than other kinds of joint pain, you may not understand why. But you’re not crazy – arthritis hip pain is different. While all of the joints in your body are important, some are vital to moving freely. These joints are the ball-and-socket joints. Sometimes called ball joints, they are the ones that control major range of motion, and support the skeletal structure. Plus, unlike hinge joints – our fingers for example – ball joints allow us to move in more than one direction. Our ball joints allow us to pivot and rotate, all while being strong enough to bear our weight, or the weight we’re carrying. Our hips are the largest ball joints in our bodies. So, when our hips – the body’s most important ball joints – don’t move well, nothing moves well. That’s when you want Arthritis Relief Cream . Why? Because Arthritis Relief Cream is the best topical pain reliever for arthritis hip pain. And here’s why… Dangerous Temptations While it’s tempting to reach for an over the counter (OTC) pain killer when pain and stiffness locks up your hips (or any of your joints), it’s not always worth the risk. NSAIDs (such as aspirin and ibuprofen), acetaminophen, and other pain pills come with warnings and side effects lists that seem to be miles long. You have to think about what other medications you’re taking, be aware of overdoses and interactions. You have to worry about what other problems these OTC pain killers could cause, and balance those risks with just how effective they may – or may not – be on your arthritis hip pain. Plus, if your hips lock or stiffen before it’s time to take another dose, there’s almost nothing you can do. Big Arthritis Hip Pain Requires Big Relief A topical pain reliever can be the solution you’re looking for, especially one that uses the active ingredient, menthol, and uses it in the right amount. Menthol is a powerful counterirritant that “distracts” the body with a cooling sensation, and offers penetrating relief to your hips and shoulders. One of the few topical pain relieving active ingredients that has been proven to work against pain, menthol has been recognized as a safe alternative to pain pills for years. So what can make menthol even more effective on your arthritis hip pain? When it is paired with the right other ingredients. Oils and other natural products that provide support to the menthol, making it easier and faster for your body to absorb – which gets the pain relieving menthol to the source of your pain even sooner. And that formula is what makes Arthritis Relief Cream topical pain reliever perfect for arthritis hip pain. Arthritis Relief Cream goes to work on contact. No need for anything to build up in your system before you can walk or move comfortably again. The cool tingle starts making you feel better immediately, the oils and natural compounds speed the relief to your joints, and in as little as 30 minutes the pain is relieved  – and can stay  that way for hours! Try getting that result with an NSAID or acetaminophen. If you’re tired of arthritis hip pain, or even just stiffness, take a few minutes to watch this brief presentation. You’ll see why Arthritis Relief Cream is the best topical pain reliever for arthritis hip pain. And when you order now, you get 25% off your first order.
