Research shows Arnica is as effective as ibuprofen gel. A clinical trial was carried out to look at the effectiveness of a gel made from fresh, organic Arnica montana flower heads against one of the leading pharmaceutical gels, Ibuprofen, with very positive results.
Twenty doctors in Switzerland undertook a strictly controlled study involving 204 patients using A.Vogel Arnica Gel & Ibuprofen gel. Improvement in the two main areas had to be achieved for the study to be successful & in both cases Arnica Gel proved to be as effective as the pharmaceutical pain-killer.
In addition, of the patients who assessed efficacy as 'very good' or ‘good’, more patients in the Arnica group (64.0%) expressed satisfaction with their gel than in the Ibuprofen group (58.8%).
The investigators also generally evaluated the efficacy of the Arnica Gel as better than that of the Ibuprofen gel. Mother Nature has a store of such remedies, many now the subject of research that shows, as with Arnica Gel, that they are equally as effective as conventional treatments & more acceptable not just to the user but the health care professional as well.
It is reassuring to have science backing up what naturopaths like Alfred Vogel have known for years.
