The not-so-secret power of eucalyptus

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.

Peppermint is widely available and you don’t need to genetically modify it in order for it to be effective. Here are three reasons why I’m a fan of it as a natural ingredient…

1. It stimulates blood flow
One of its main claims to fame is that it stimulates blood flow. In the past, it was used on wounds that weren’t healing.

2. It provides pain relief from headaches
Try applying Dr. D’s Super 7 to your forehead when experiencing a headache or migraine. You’ll see first-hand how effective the peppermint helps.

3. Used as an alternative medicine for treating a variety of other issues
Peppermint can be used to treat digestive issues (which is also why peppermint tea is so popular!) In addition, ingesting peppermint oil can help with nausea and heartburn.

Arnica Montana is said to be the most commonly used homeopathic medicine in the world. I chose to include it in Dr. D’s Super 7 because:

1. It’s antibacterial 
In its natural form, it can be use on open wounds to prevent infection. For someone who’s had an external injury, it helps relieve skin irritation.

2. It minimizes swelling 
Arnica Montana helps with sprains, strains, blisters and even reduces bruising. It’s also known to help with arthritis; It goes to the source of inflammation.

3. Right from a flower
You’ll commonly see synthetic arnica in topical treatments, but Arnica Montana oil is straight from a flower. It’s 100% pure. This is one thing I made sure of for Dr. D’s Super 7 because I wanted the consumer to make sure they were getting the best of the best.

Top 3 things to know about oil of wintergreen

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.

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.

Oil of wintergreen is commonly used worldwide, especially in Europe, because of its proven results. It’s the most active ingredient in Dr. D’s Super 7 for three reasons:

1. It’s proven to be one of the best natural anti-inflammatories
It improves blood supply to injured area, which helps speed up the healing and not just mask the pain.

2. It acts as a counter-irritant
It distracts the nervous system from feeling pain within muscles joints and nerves. That means, not only does it help speed up healing, but it helps take the pain away as well

3. It’s easily absorbable
Many essential oils don’t penetrate the skin layer – but oil of wintergreen does. In the Dr. D’s Super 7 formula, we also enhanced the absorption rate by adding a triple carrier system, but even on its own it penetrates quite nicely.

The next natural ingredient in Dr. D's Super 7 is Arnica Montana.
