The use of plant-based products for their health benefits has been known for centuries. From herbal teas to essential oils, there is a wide range of natural remedies available that have been used to alleviate different ailments. One such product that has gained popularity in recent years is arnica. This herb has been used for centuries for its healing properties and is now available in various forms, such as creams, gels, and oils. In this blog, we will discuss the power of plant-based products, with a particular focus on arnica and its healing ability in the body.
What are plant-based products?
Plant-based products are derived from plants and are used for medicinal or health purposes. They can be used in various forms such as herbs, essential oils, or supplements. These products are a natural and safe way to support the body's natural healing process without the use of synthetic drugs.
The Power of Plant-Based Products
Plant-based products have been used for centuries to treat a wide range of conditions. Many plants contain natural compounds that have medicinal properties and can help to alleviate symptoms of different ailments. For example, ginger has been used for centuries to relieve nausea and vomiting, while chamomile is known for its calming properties.
One of the most powerful plant-based products is arnica. This herb is native to Europe, but it is now grown in many parts of the world. Arnica has been used for centuries to treat different conditions, such as pain, inflammation, and bruising. It is known for its ability to stimulate the body's natural healing process and promote the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area.
The Healing Ability of Arnica
Arnica contains natural compounds that have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. These compounds can help to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain in the body. Arnica is also known to improve blood circulation, which can speed up the healing process and promote the growth of new tissue.
Arnica is commonly used to treat conditions such as arthritis, muscle pain, and bruising. It can also be used to relieve the pain and swelling associated with sprains and strains. Arnica can be applied topically in the form of creams, gels, or oils. It can also be taken orally in the form of tablets or capsules.

How Can Arnica Be Used?
Arnica is a versatile plant-based product that can be used in various ways to support the body's natural healing process. It can be used both orally and topically to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Oral Use of Arnica:
Arnica can also be taken orally in the form of tablets or capsules. These products are commonly used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, sore throat, and insect bites. When taken orally, arnica can help to reduce inflammation and relieve pain systemically, throughout the whole body. It is important to note that oral use of arnica should only be done under the supervision of a healthcare provider, especially if you are on other medication.
Topical Use of Arnica:
Arnica can be applied topically in the form of creams, gels, or oils. These products can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, such as arthritis, muscle pain, and bruising. When applied to the affected area, arnica can help to reduce swelling and inflammation, relieve pain, and promote faster healing. It is also commonly used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. The effect is more localised when used on the skin, honing the power of this amazing plant right where the body needs it most.
A Must Inclusion In Our Dr Kez ChiroLab Topical Creams
We had to have high amounts of Arnica in our two Injury Relief products. The healing benefits are well aligned with what we are trying to help the body achieve. I have used my knowledge of anatomy and physiology, as a Chiropractor, to determine exactly what the body needs to speed up recovery and to help bring about long term healing and relief. So, needless to say, arnica was a must inclusion. Both our Kirofix® Injury Relief Lotion and Trauma Relief Cream contain high levels of arnica (for obvious reasons), as well as magnesium for the positive effects this has on muscles and nerves (as well as making proteins, bones and DNA), glucosamine for its incredible support on joint function (including its positive effect on bone and cartilage and it’s pain relieving effects), and this is just to name a few of the active ingredients that naturally power these products that can be used in your own home to support healing, in between your practitioner visits, or as a way to nip injuries in the bud potentially before they get to the point of needing external treatment at all.
An application of either Kirofix® Injury Relief Lotion or Trauma Relief Cream provides these carefully researched products, in extremely high doses, directly to the injured area to provide the healing benefits of each of the 10 active ingredients, as well as how these collectively provide the building blocks required for the repair of soft tissues including muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bursae, cartilage etc. Not only have we packed as much active ingredients into these products, to the point that another millilitre would cause the cream to separate into it’s solid and liquid form, but we have also chosen base cream ingredients for their ability to drive the active ingredients deep under the surface of the skin and they all provide anti-inflammatory benefits as well…..no cheap sorbolene bases for our products!
