|Health Effects of White Flower Analgesic Balm|
People tend to think that the use of white flower analgesic balm for medicinal and therapeutic purposes is a traditional practice that should have died a long time ago, particularly because it has no little to no scientific and medical basis. People would rather buy medicines from the pharmacies, have laboratories done, and undergo all sorts of treatment procedures to cure them from diseases. However, using white flower analgesic balm has numerous benefits that are equal, or even superior to modern day treatments.
The Origins of White flower Analgesic Balm
Gan Geog Eng is generally credited for the development of the white flower analgesic balm. His medication was patented in 1927, and it was well received by the Singaporean people, and it eventually reached the far ends of the world, and is well known even to this day.
The white flower analgesic balm is generally composed of different oils and essences of plants. The components of the balm include wintergreen, eucalyptus, lavender, menthol, peppermint, and camphor. It is usually marketed in bottled form, containing a few milliliters of the liquid.
What Are Its Health Effects?
Since the balm is made out of the essences of plants, there is little to no side effect when used by individuals. Rarely would people get reactions from applying the balm on affected areas. The immediate sensation that would be felt upon application would be a cool and soothing effect that remains in the area of the skin for a long time. The balm can also be felt percolating through the muscles, and its effects would be felt as early as a few minutes and last for hours.
White flower analgesic balm is used for symptomatic relief of painful sensations, such as muscle and joint paints. It is also used for muscular conditions such as lower back pains, muscle strains and sprains, hematologic conditions such as bruises, and bone conditions like rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. It is also frequently used to relieve headaches of any kind.
The reason behind its effects on the body stems from the ancient philosophical teachings of the Chinese and the concept of Yin and Yang. By using a clear liquid, that does not stain nor does not lubricate or moisturize, it is able to penetrate deep into muscle and tissue, wherein it exerts its potent effects on the body. This restores balance, and allows the natural flow of chi to continue throughout the body.
The health effects can only be realized if the balm is applied correctly. It is a topical medication, and should only be applied onto skin. It should not be applied near the eyes or the nose or the mouth, as it may cause hypersensitivity reactions.
It should not be taken orally, to relieve stomach pain for instance, because the contents would only cause stomach upset and may even prove to be toxic in higher doses. A small amount is applied to the skin of the area affected by disease, and the ointment should be massaged into the skin, to hasten the absorption process. The vapor can also be inhaled, and a very small amount may be applied below the nose, for sinusitis.
The white flower analgesic balm may look unassuming and ineffective, but using it does wonders for the body.
