Rest easy, y'all! If you were worried about taking Traumeel, but wanted to, I have the following to offer: Okay, I have seen many questions about the Belladonna, St. John's Wort and other ingredients in the Traumeel. While I had noted on other threads how the potentization process works, and said that it was very unlikely; not being an MD, I refrained from saying that there is NO interaction between those and Lortabs, Neurontin, etc. BUT, today, I talked to my Homeopath PCP (an MD) about it, who reassured me DEFINITELY that there was no reaction between Lortabs (or any other opoids/ pain meds) or Neurontin, or any of the commonly prescribed FM drugs. Homeopathy, in general is a good therapy to use in conjunction with allopathic therapies due to the unlikeliness of interactions. The St.John's Wort in Traumeel is a homeopathic preparation of St. John's Wort, meaning it is a potentized dilution- it would NOT be considered at all the same as the herb St. John's Wort. (see my other posts about the potentization process- it's too much to post again! Ever!) Again: Homeopathic St. John's Wort is entirely different than the herbal St. John's Wort. The warnings cited for St. John's Wort are not applicable to the Homeopathic preparation of St. John's Wort in Traumeel. I agree that it either seems to work or it doesn't. Homeopathy is very specific, and as FM symptoms/ causes are so diffuse it would be impossible for anything to be appropriate for all of us! To those that Traumeel didn't work for- do keep looking! There is a lot that homeopathy has to offer. AND- Perhaps a better solution (for those who would tend to flush remedies that aren't effective for what they are taking them for at that time) would be to 'muscle test' the unopened bottle (search 'Applied Kinesiology' on the site search engine and there is an explanation posted). If you are brave, you can do that in the store, and not have to spend the $$ at all if it is not likely to help you. If you do take it home to test it, remember to hold on to your receipt! If you have ordered it, you can muscle test the unopened bottle as soon as you get it. If you get a weak result from it, pack it back up and send it back. No waste, no lost $$, no worrying about anyone else's welfare! Also, there seems to be a few Guai users who have said they've used the Traumeel as well with no ill effects. I don't know enough about it, so we'll just leave that to the anecdotal evidence presented... Unless someone knows for sure! Take Care All! Lollie Wow. I really overuse the !, don't I? I must sound really excited all the time!! Or do I sound loud? Or emphatic? Uh-oh! Now I sound like I question everything! (That's better!) !!! Time to go to bed FOR SURE!!!
