I recently pulled a large muscle in my leg (biceps femoris). After applying ice and taking ibuprofen for the first 48 hours I basically rested it in order to let my body repair itself.

Then I remembered Arnica.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Arnica is commonly used for acute trauma to soft tissue like bruising, pulls, strains – those sorts of things. It belongs to the realm of  Ayurveda. Please consult your health professional before taking it to make sure you’ll get all the benefits.

So far my results are encouraging and I am on the mend. You can read up on the benefits of Arnica from the link below.
