Nice eh? I wish that happened every time I mentioned a product... I'd love to try a Dyson or get a new iMac or a Flip Video camera or a cruise or a family vacation at Disneyland too :)
Anyway the fabulous folks at Lakota sent me 10 different natural pain relief products! The first product I tried was the Lakota Back Pain Roll-On.
Specifically formulated with Lakota Capsaicin to relieve tough back pain. This fast-acting formula is odourless, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly. Penetrating deep into the muscle, Lakota Capsaicin block back pain signals at the source. Lakota Back Pain provides effective relief of pain associated with muscle spasm such as back pain, tense neck muscles, strains, and sprains.I found it to be quite effective at helping relieve the pain but the heat got a little intense at times. I have used it a lot on my shoulders and it definitely helps. I was also very impressed with the fact that it really is non-greasy. It absorbed VERY quickly and didn't mess up my shirt or anything. It also lasts for several hours which is great.
The next product I tried was the Celesta PM Rub.
Celesta PM Rub provides penetrating pain relief that works the whole night through. Apply the rub to painful areas before bed, and while you sleep pain blockers in the Celesta PM Rub target the source of your pain. All night long, the Celesta PM Rub works to relive your pain. Get a pain-free full night’s rest with Celesta PM Rub.This rub is heatless so it is perfect for night-time relief. On the nights I used it I woke up with my back less stiff than on the nights I didn't use it. I appreciated the odourless, non-greasy aspect of this rub as well... no icky mess on my sheets.
I think my favourite product that I have tried so far though is the Celesta PM Caplets.
Celesta PM eases pain and gently aids sleep giving you a full night’s rest. The unique non-habit-forming combination provides your body and mind the soothing sleep you need so you can wake refreshed. Whether you have sore muscles, backache, arthritis pain, or other aches and pains, you can trust Celesta for a full night’s rest.I love these caplets. They definitely helped me sleep well and didn't make me feel groggy or weird in the morning either. I was also able to wake up no problem when my kids needed me in the middle of the night... which happens far more than I care to admit!
I think the combination of all three products in conjunction with a great massage and a visit to the chiropractor has definitely helped ease my back pain. I have gone without using any of the products for the last couple days just to see if it made any difference and I am certainly more stiff and sore today than I was 3 days ago. SO I will be going back to using the products asap.
If you are a back pain sufferer like me than it certainly can't hurt to give Lakota a try! They also offer natural sleep aides and products for fibromyalgia, arthritis pain, joint pain, and general muscle pain.
