If A Homeopathic Drug Works, Look At Its “Inert” Ingredients
Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 12, 2015
<font size=”2″>I’ve noted elsewhere that Nelsons Acne Gel, which is surprisingly effective for a homeopathic treatment, has alcohol and tea tree oil among its “inert” ingredients:
Now, I think I’ve found another example of this phenomenon: Traumeel. Once again, alcohol is one of the few ingredients with a possible pharmacological effect to be present in meaningful doses, yet it is listed as an “inert” ingredient:
…Traumeel ointment is 13.8% alcohol. Rubbing an alcohol-based ointment into the skin is likely to produce a cooling effect — exactly what you might be looking for if you’ve got a bruise, injury or swelling.
Want to duplicate the cooling effect of Traumeel ointment? Use pretty much any ointment with a similar percentage of alcohol in its makeup.
