Calcific Tendonitis

We would suggest the following herbs:

White Willow: Salicin is present in the bark, which has effects similar to aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in pain relief and for reducing inflammation.

Turmeric: Curcumin in turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Boswellia: Boswellia acid has anti-inflammatory properties.

Bromelain: An enzyme found in pineapples, has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Herbs may come in the form of capsules for slow release, tinctures for fast relief or even teas.  Always check to see if there will be any interaction with other medications first.

We would suggest the following treatments:

Acupuncture: Fine needles are inserted into the skin along meridians, (energy pathways) that are blocked. Acupuncture releases the body’s natural pain-relieving opioids, calm the sympathetic nervous system and trigger the release of brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and hormones. Excellent for pain relief.

Massage: Transverse friction massage with a specialist.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut, sweet almond, grape seed for example. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 5 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Eucalyptus and 2 drops of Rosemary. Rub the mixture over the painful areas, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 3 drops of Lavender, 1 drop of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Rosemary. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8 **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Rosemary – Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, use with caution if on prescription medication. Avoid use with children below 5 years of age. A stimulating oil, so no high doses prior to bedtime **
