POISON IVY

This is news you can use. I’ve been under the care of a chiropractor for the last 16 months because of a car accident in 2011 that messed up my spine. I found, over time, that his treatments allowed me to work in the garden with less pain and grimacing.

At my most recent treatment, I happened to mention that I had poison ivy. Or, at least, that was my best guess. I don’t actually know what I got into, just that it happened about two months ago.

“I’ve got just the thing for you,” he said. “Biofreeze will knock it right out. My wife got into poison ivy last summer and tried the Biofreeze. Our neighbor also got into it and we gave him the Biofreeze. He came back for more!” (paraphrased)

The doc gave me 6 sample packets. According to the information card, Biofreeze is a cooling gel often used for relief from arthritis, sore muscles and joints, and back pain. I can’t believe the doc held out on me all this time! He waits until I have poison ivy to spill the goods!

I was already on oral and cream steroids so there was no point in my trying the Biofreeze but I am sharing this information for others to try. Evie says Biofreeze also stops the itch of mosquito bites.

I found it on Amazon and Ebay but if you wish to ‘buy local’ check their website: biofreeze.com/wheretobuy.
