Arnica = ********

Healing power of the mind = not really proven but if it helps you then why not?

Healthy diet and lifestyle = a good start


If you bruise an awful lot then it's a good idea to see your GP for a FBC check to make sure you've got enough platelets and no leukaemia type stuff. Also avoid taking aspirin as a painkiller as it makes you bruise more by inhibiting platelet aggregation.

i have found that witch hazel works really well too, which will irritate you, as i suppose that's a placebo too.

i've had a few sprains and lots of bruising. when i stick witch hazel on it within a couple of hours, the bruising comes out much quicker, swelling goes down super-fast and it heals noticably more quickly.

so if it's not the power of the mind, or what i'm putting on it, then what is at work here? there is a noticable difference in healing times for me and plenty of other people i know who use it. if it didn't work in some way, then no one would bother.

What do you stick her on with? Gaffer tape? And doesn't her broomstick get caught in your spokes?[:D]

Fozz only knows one sort of friction, but he found baby oil got rid of that problem

i used to get a ride home from the pub on someone's handlebars a few years back.

it's quite amusing and usually ends in scrambling out of someone's privet hedge.

hmm i wonder where those bruises come from...
