I have recently discovered, first hand, how valuable the nervine herbs are for relieving nerve pain. What you might call a “fire ball” of pain had developed in my knee. None of the regular herbal remedies were bringing any level of relief. Searching in Dr. Christopher’s writings I found a reference to the use of nervine herbs for nerve pain. I applied the General Nervine Tonic directly from the bottle to the painful area on my knee. It was as if I’d taken a fire hose to the pain. Just wiped it out. I was amazed. The relief lasted about three hours. When it began to wear off I applied more. It continued to work. We quickly made a salve from the formula which continued to relieve the pain in my injured knee.
Once the pain and inflammation were under control I began to work on building up my injured knee. It’s going to take time but I can see positive daily progress.
Once the knees have been compromised an aggressive program is needed to clear the injury and rebuild strength and health. This is best done by using the BF&C Salve and Extract. The pain associated with an injured knee can interfere with a good night’s sleep as well as prevent good movement and exercise during the day. One of the best ways to smooth the fiery pain from an overused or abused knee joint is the General Nervine Salve. This salve penetrates into the inflamed nerves, allowing them to calm down and the pain to stop. There is no numbing effect only an end of the throbbing pain. Personally I have found this to work quickly during the night allowing me to get a good night’s rest.
Using Hydro Therapy is also important to healing an injured knee. Anytime you have injury or illness you have blockage. Hydrotherapy is all about clearing blockage. The hot water brings fresh blood to the injured area and the cold slams all that fresh blood through the blockage. Hydrotherapy is like shooting a blood bullet into the affected area. The hot water loads the blood bullet and the cold fires it. The more dramatic the change between the hot and cold the deeper the blood with all its healing nutrients will penetrate.
