Are you having trouble choosing between the different brands of natural pain relief cream? If your answer is yes, your probably looking for a way to distinguish the best choice? The ingredients change from product to product and so makes it tough to do a apples to apples comparison.
Quality is a good place to start when looking at natural pain relief creams. So in thinking about the features that would indicate a natural cream preparation as being best, I’ve come up with a short list to help me narrow down the field.
Here’s my short list of features that would indicate a product as being best:
- Does not Interfere with other Medications – first and foremost, we don’t want to cause ourselves any more problems. I would look for this specifically in the product description. A natural product that doesn’t state upfront that it is safe for use with any other products or give a list of products to avoid clearly hasn’t done the research and should be avoided.
- Is Safe for Long Term Continuous Use – Most pain and especially chronic pain with require on going treatment that could last a long time. Finding a Pain relief cream that is easy on the skin with no side effects after extended use will be key.
- Has No Problems with Over Dosing – Look for products that state they can be used over a large portion of the body with no contra indications. You shouldn’t fear your natural pain relief cream. It should do its job over as much or as little of the body as needed with out worry.
- Delivers Maximum Relief with each Application – The last thing I want to do is stop every 30 minutes to rub on more cream. The relief should last at least a couple of hours before you need to re-apply.
Find a natural pain relief cream that delivers all of these features and you can be sure you have a good quality product. This list of qualifiers works well when looking at any product you want to by. If there is no other point of comparison you can always look at quality.
Also, if you are taking prescription medication it is a good idea to take a list of ingredients from a product you want to try to your Doctor to get his opinion for any possible problems with drug interactions.
