The not-so-secret power of eucalyptus
Over the past decade, I’ve been doing extensive research and trying to find the most effective combination of natural ingredients to help with pain relief and healing. At the same time, I noticed most of my patients were wanting to avoid popping pills and move toward topical, natural pain relievers.
So, I developed a topical treatment, Dr. D’s Super 7. In this seven-part series, I will breakdown each of the seven natural ingredients in the ointment and why they’re effective in treating pain and helping with recovery.
Eucalyptus had to be included in Dr. D’s Super 7 because it helps with dealing with both immediate injuries and chronic pain. Here are three ways it does that…
1. It calms nervous system
Applying eucalyptus and inhaling it proves to help relieve anxiety and calm the limbic system, which is the part of the brain that makes us feel emotion. It’s also known to help with concentration.
2. It’s highly effective in treating auto-immune diseases
Eucalyptus penetrates deep into the skin and helps with conditions that create more inflammation than necessary. This includes conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
3. It mixes well with other natural ingredients
Eucalyptus is a medicinal essential oil and mixes well with other natural ingredients (especially the other six ingredients in Dr. D’s Super 7)! Getting the right concentration of eucalyptus is important in order to see results and I’ve made sure that the particular mix in Dr. D.’s Super 7 leads to long lasting relief.
