Traumeel

Posted by terrepruitt on March 31, 2011

The doctor in my Nia Class had given me the homeopathic medicine, Trauma.  I really liked it so I asked for more.  She said that she likes Traumeel, so I agreed to try it.  Both of them say they relieve the same things (muscular pain, sprains, pulls, and bruises).  The first ingredient in the Traumeel is Calendula officinalis, which is the fourth ingredient in Trauma and it shows “Garden Marigold” in parenthesis.  This ointment has a lot of the same ingredients as Trauma but they are in a different order.  So this ointment is very similar to the Trauma.

It is a bit greasy and has a slight odor.  I just put some of it on along with some Trauma for comparison.  After I put the Traumeel on I had to wash my hand.  It is not extremely greasy but just greasy enough that I can’t just rub it into my hand.  I am actually not convinced it works as well as the Truama.  It actually smells like medicine, somewhat like a band-aid, it is not a strong odor, but compared to the Trauma it is strong because Trauma has absolutely NO odor at all.

When I was talking to my Nia student about Traumeel she mentioned that they have an oral medicine that can be taken.  My Nia friend mentioned it too, in the comments of the post regarding Trauma.  I was able to find informatnoi on the internet,  Trauma has an oral medicine too.  I have not taken either medicine orally.

Posting about these products is my way of getting information to people.  I am sharing my opinion on the products so that you can learn something about them and then decide for yourself which one you might be interested in using yourself if you are interested in homeopathic medicine.  I also welcome my readers sharing what they know.  Having readers comment and share is the best part.

I have concluded that I like the Trauma better.  I feel it works, whereas I don’t get the same sense from the Traumeel.  As stated in this post, I put them both on.  I put the Traumeel on my knee (which gets tired from my odd gait) and I put the Trauma on my toe (foot and a few other toes).  My toes and foot feel nice, but my knee feels the same.  The Traumeel is a bit greasy, whereas I think the Trauma is more of a soft cream that actually moisturized the area I have used it on.  I smell a slight odor with the Traumeel but nothing with the Trauma.

Have any of you tried them both?  Any of you tried either?  What are your thoughts?
