A couple months ago, I was introduced to a product I had not heard of before called Topricin. I received samples of the regular Topricin, the Topricin Junior, and Topricin Foot Therapy Cream to try.
My Personal Experience With Topricin: My 3-year-old daughter had complained of her foot hurting last week. My husband and I inspected the foot, but could not find any visible cause. We put Topricin Junior on her foot before bedtime and there has not been a repeat to the complaint since. It was easy to apply, pleasant smelling, and non-irritating.
My husband has tried the regular Topricin for a sore shoulder he experienced after work a few weeks ago and thought it shortened his time recover from the pain. He had likely over-exerted himself to cause the injury.
Topricin was created by a decorated Marine Corps helicopter combat and rescue crew chief, Lou Paradise. When Lou was ending his second tour of duty in Vietnam, he was suffering from bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, which was brought on from injuries sustained from the war.
Lou wanted to find a way to heal the problem and not mask the symptoms. He felt surgery was not the answer to his pain. Oddly enough, this former Marine learned as much as he could from Eastern medicine by travelling to Hong Kong- acupuncture, herbal medicine and homeopathy, to the extent of being able to create and patent a topical pain reliever.
He is the president and chief of research at Topical BioMedics, a company that he founded in 1994 and when Topricin was created. In 2009, he created Topricin Foot Therapy Cream to help heal foot and ankle issues and Topricin Junior (5% of sales from Topricin Junior are donated to foundations for pediatric cancer care), addressing the safety issues and concerns of parents and doctors in pediatric pain relief. Lou later saw many customers benefit from Topricin when battling fibromyalgia. Topricin received a patent for the treatment of pain associated with fibromyalgia in spring 2010.
Topricin is a topical cream and has eliminated the need for pain medicine for many. Lou’s patented formula includes homeopathic arnica, and Echinacea. Oddly enough, it also contains four types of venom derivatives, which are not poisonous, but have highly concentrated digestive juices which help stimulate the enzymes that promote healing. There are 11 homeopathic remedies that work together to promote blood flow to damaged joints in Topricin. This speeds healing and reduces pain in as little as one week without negative side effects. The ingredients/remedies are suspended in purified water and natural oil emulsions that moisturize and protect the skin. No petroleum or paraben bases.
