Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Recently I had injured my shoulder, however the worst part was the pain from what I assume to be a pinched nerve because the pain would shoot through my shoulder and down both arms.

If I could lie in a certain way I could get relief, but standing was unbearable. From all our former experiences with sports injuries, I chose not to go to the doctor because I would only be reaffirming what I already knew I needed to do.

So the first thing I think about is that with injury there is always inflammation. If I take something for the pain, it will cover the symptoms, but I want to do something to help remedy the injury.

So I used several drops of each of Idaho Balsam Fir and the PanAway oil blend which both have properties to help with inflammation and I used Prenolone Cream (contains pregnenolone), another tool with anti-inflammatory properties. (I would have preferred Neurogen in this case for the nerve issue, but I had given my bottle to someone else.)

My husband and I always have handy Regenolone or Prenolone for sports injuries because of the results we have received. Both have MSM, an organic sulfur combination which is helpful for pain.

The second thing I do is ask myself, "How can I help my body regenerate or help that area?" Rest, of course, and so the first day I stayed flat and applied a lot of the oils and Prenolone cream. From my past experiences, I noticed sometimes the oil/cream combination will dull the pain quite quickly and other times it takes longer.

So be persistent. (You sometimes have to interchange oils to see which combination works depending on if it is muscle pain, bone pain, inflammation pain, whatever. There is a very effective recipe for inflammation if you need additional relief in the essential oils reference book that we have used with our son that was very effective for a bad ankle injury.
I also took extra NingXia Red juice since my body was under stress and took PD 80/20 (pregnenolone and DHEA capsules) and Exodus II capsules. The pain was intense enough where I would feel nauseated momentarily, so I knew my body needed extra assistance.

The second day I could be up for short periods, but would need to lie flat on and off throughout the day. I kept up my regimen. The third day I was walking around carefully. The next day I felt like myself.

I am always grateful that I have great "tools" to help our bodies jump back so quickly.

3.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
