Traumeel- An all-natural alternative to prevent and heal your tennis elbow

August 6, 2014

An all-natural alternative to prevent and heal your tennis elbow is here with the Traumeel!

A few weeks ago I was told about a product called Traumeel. She described it as a natural, homeopathic, anti-inflammatory product without the side effects of ibuprofen. I always knew about homeopathy and that was a form of alternative medicine.

I googled “Traumeel” and what I found was encouraging. The first thing I saw was a definition by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), an affiliate of the National Institute of Health (NIH). NCI described Traumeel as.…”diluted extracts isolated from plants and minerals, including belladonna, arnica, St. Johns wort, and Echinacea. …Traumeel  exhibits anti-inflammatory activity.
Unlike ibuprofen, Traumeel has no known side effects. Also unlike ibuprofen, which is taken orally and can cause abdominal pain and nausea, Traumeel tablets are taken sublingually (under the tongue) and enter the blood stream directly by avoiding the GI track altogether.

Traumeel comes in various forms including tablets and cream for internal use. It can also be applied directly on the skin over an injured muscle or joint using the gel and cream applications. It’s great for any tennis players who are suffering from tennis elbow or golf elbow syndrome. It’s helps speed recovery and reduced the chronic swelling associated with the injury, like tennis elbow. Also, use Traumeel tablets and cream for soar muscle and joints and found them to be an effective anti-inflammatory during heavy training on court and off court.

So whether you are recovering from overuse injury, combating chronic pain and inflammation due to heavy training, Traumeel can be an effective, and it’s all natural remedy.



Traumeel- Natural Medicine At Its Finest

August 17, 2011

In 1936 Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg founded a company to produce his combinations

of homeopathic medicines. He called the company Heel (an acronym of four Latin

words: herba est ex luce or ‘Plants come from light.’) Today Heel is the exclusive

distributor and marketer of Heel products to health care practitioners throughout the

U.S. Heel’s most popular products include remedies for headaches, sinus and allergy

relief, bronchitis and asthma relief, as well as relief of back pain, inflammation and

arthritis pain.

Heel is behind the product Traumeel. Positive results have shown that Traumeel is indeed effective and appropriate for use in

cases of epicondylitis, tendinitis, muscle strain, etc.

Furthermore, several studies have shown that Traumeel’s inflammation-regulating

effects are due to direct impact on immune cells.

Traumeel® consists of 14 natural ingredients including Arnica, and is indicated for the

temporary relief from pain associated with sports injuries, repetitive use injuries, sprains,

backaches, muscle aches and bruises. Backed by dozens of scientific and clinical

studies, Traumeel is a safe, effective formula recommended by doctors worldwide, and is

an essential addition to home healthcare.

The Tennis Depot sells Traumeel in 3 different variants including ointment, oral drops, and tablets.

The miracles of non-modern medicine: highlighting homeopathic treatments

November 29, 2009


Before reading this article look at the two choices before you and decide which you would prefer to put into your body.

Choice 1.

  • Chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, problems with vision or balance
  • Nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • Upset stomach, mild heartburn, diarrhea, constipation
  • Drowsiness or headache

Choice 2.

  • All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects
    • Mild redness or irritation of the skin

Every athlete, serious or not, is going to find themselves waking up in the morning with some aches and pains that hamper their everyday activity. Many other athletes feel they need something to allow them to play up to their top level.

A majority of those people reach for some type of anti-inflammatory or pain killer found in pharmacies, supermarkets, and convenience stores around the country. A few popular choices are Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, and Motrin. However, there are other, better, options that people are not familiar with, to help stave off those nagging injuries.

At the beginning of the article I provided a list of potential side effects of two different medicines.  Choice 1 lists side effects of commonly used pain killers and anti-inflammatory’s such as Motrin and Aspirin.

Choice 2 is the one potential side effect listed for the homeopathic medicine Arnica Montana.

Both lists were compiled from the website To be fair, on other websites I did see other possible side effects listed but all said that in diluted doses Arnica was considered safe for use with little potential for side effects.

Looking at those two lists again which would you rather use?

My experience with medicines as a top level junior and division 1 college player consisted predominately of homeopathic medicines. I used a combination of products to assist with daily pain, bumps and bruises, and more serious sprains and strains.

The two main ingredients I use in place of the common medicines are Arnica Montana and Calendula Officinalis.

Arnica is an everyday remedy used for bumps, bruises, swelling, and muscle stiffness. It is a great pain reliever for tennis elbow, sprained ankles, and knee tendonitis.

Calendula is used for burns, rashes, and blisters. Great for sore fingers or toes and after that summer day you forgot to use sunscreen.

Many people will have concerns when using products they are unfamiliar with and something their doctor didn’t recommend. The two things two understand is that, for one, there are no major side effects, and two, there are many different types, gels, creams, pills, tinctures, if one does not work there will be others to try and they are all natural and plant based for limited health risks.

Heel-BHI Traumeel Ointment (50g)

For anyone on the fence, free samples of Heel-BHI Traumeel, a muscle pain and anti-inflammatory cream with both Arnica and Calendula, is available from

I would suggest anyone looking for an alternative to modern medicine give Traumeel a try. Or any other Arnica based product they might find.
