Studies show Capsaicin-based pain relievers are the way to go! Before you reach for IcyHot® or Bengay®, which use Methyl Salicylate as an active, consider this article (click on the link below). Not only is Methyl Salicylate less effective at relieving pain, but it can also cause an overdose when used excessively. It has the same lethal risks as aspirin. Capsaicin, on the other hand, is naturally derived, safe, effective, and proven to work better over time.

Just one more reason we love MyOmega®

Capsaicin-Hottest new pain reliever?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2009 by myomegapain

If you’ve ever eaten spicy food then you’ve encountered Capsaicin. This incredible substance is not just a flavor-booster, though. It has also been shown to relieve muscle aches, joint pain, cramps, and the pain associated with arthritis when applied topically.

Israeli scientists are finding that it has even GREATER potential than we originally thought. “The holy grail of any local anesthetic treatment is to stop pain without causing any other effects,” says Dr. Alexander Binshtok of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler School of Medicine. This goal may actually be achieved with the use of Capsaicin!

By joining Capsaicin with a derivative of Lidocaine, doctors may be able to target pain receptors selectively and reduce the risks that come with anesthesia. This hot new medicine may replace the need for epidurals, which can actually complicate deliveries.

With millions of Americans suffering from chronic pain, this new discovery may be the answer to the perfect anesthetic. One that can target pain directly without side effects. This discovery also makes us realize just how valuable and effective Capsaicin is in relation to pain management. To experience the pain-relieving power of Capsaicin try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream with Capsaicin. Not only does it impart a comforting warming sensation, it actually keeps pain from returning when used regularly over time. Get it while it’s hot!

Cell Phone Elbow?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2009 by myomegapain

Hold the phone! According to the CTIA-Wireless Association, over 250 million Americans subscribe to cell phone service, and over 1 out of 5 households are cell-phone only. It’s one thing to get a work-related injury like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from typing all day, but now we have to worry about pinched nerves from using our phones??

It turns out Cell Phone Elbow is caused from bending your arm for an extended period of time, which compresses your ulnar nerve. This causes a loss of blood flow, reduced mobility and pain. So what’s a cell phone user to do? Here are some suggestions:

  • Rotate ears frequently. If you feel any tension in your arm, switch hands. This will aid circulation.
  • If you’ve been on the phone for a long time and are feeling tension, swing your arms around and try to loosen them up. Stretching is also extremely beneficial.
  • Go hands free! This is a safe alternative for many reasons. Many people get injured when they’re distracted by their phones. In fact, several people have been badly injured recently because they were tweeting on their phones and not paying attention to what they were doing. These injuries are being called Twinjuries…Please avoid Twinjuries. It’s completely unnecessary and pretty embarrassing.
  • Use your cell phone less. This can be very liberating! Turn it off for an afternoon. If you’re used to getting work calls or stressful texts and time-consuming emails, take a vacation. We managed to get on just fine before we started using cell phones. We can surely survive without them now.
  • If you’re already experiencing Cell Phone Elbow, treatments include injections, ultrasounds to loosen scar tissue, or chiropractic care. Unfortunately, all of these are very expensive.
  • The best thing you can do to relieve your pain quickly is to use a topical pain reliever like MyOmega™. Not only does it work quickly, but it lasts up to 6 hours. Give your forearm a therapeutic rub with MyOmega™ Triple Strength Pain Relief Rub for a blast of cooling relief. A little massage will loosen up your muscles and get you on your way to pain-free cell phone use! For a more intense massage, try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream. This timed-release heating cream uses Capsaicin to virtually melt away the pain. Best of all, it works better over time. An excellent choice for the regular cell-phone user.

MyOmega™ is available at CVS or online right here.

Response To New York Times on Pain

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2009 by myomegapain

In an article entitled “Do Sports Creams Rub the Pain Away?”, The New York Times claims that there is no evidence that pain relief creams work. The therapeutic effects of Menthol, Camphor and Capsaicin are accused of resulting from the “placebo factor”.

Not only does the FDA approve these as active ingredients for the use of pain relief, but we at MyOmega™ KNOW that topical pain relievers work. Why? Besides trying it ourselves, we’ve received a flood of responses from satisfied customers. Here’s a few:

“What a miracle !!  I have MS … I have used a cane and often use my power wheel chair to get around for the last seven years …. but since using the Omega 3 + ice pearls spray , i can walk without any assistance !!  I received instant results … and I spray my legs and knees everyday . Thanks !!”

-Dyanna W
“I play golf four or five times a week with shoulder problems. My left shoulder has an 80 percent in the rotator cuff and full tears in both parts of the labrum. I have taken Prolotherapy as opposed to surgery. It worked, but the pain is still there…until I started using MyOmega3. I now play with no pain. Ditto for my right shoulder which has a full rotator cuff, but no other treatment other than MyOmega3. It has worked form me.”

-Alan T., New York
“I’ve been using this product for three months now and I’m amazed by how effective its been for me. I tried pretty much everything I could think of- from chiropractors, to injections… like I said, I’ve tried everything and this is the first thing thats provided me with long term relief. Who knew that a cream could do something so wonderful! I’ve had arthritis for 20 years and as I get older it seems like it only gets worse.. My doctor has prescribed all sorts of narcotic pain killers and they did nothing but make me dizzy. I love that MyOmega is all natural and didn’t interact with any of the other medications I was taking or give me any side effects. I recently purchased the product for my sister and my aunt and they both love it as well. All I know is that if you don’t try it… you’re not going to know if it works for you. Life is about taking risks, I should know I’m 82 years old. Try it see if it works… and if it doesn’t work for you — call them up and get your money back. They’re wonderful people. Thanks again MyOmega!!!”

-Ashlee Deville, Nevada
“I recently stressed the tendons in my arm and the pain radiated into my elbow and on into my shoulder. I tried other “pain relievers” and accidentally saw your ad in our local paper. I went to the store immediately and purchased your Omega 3+ Pain Relief Rub. To my astonishment, I received relief within a few hours. I continued to apply the Omega 3+ Pain Relief Rub daily for the following week. At the end of the week, my arm had no aches or pain and I was able to function again. Your product, Omega 3+ Pain Relief Rub, is the best I have ever used for stressed muscles and tendons. Thank you! P.S. I have never before written a “testimonial” for a product.”

-JH, Austin, Texas
“To those people who have had the same trouble with their knees that I have: I went to my orthopedist with pain in my knee, he examined it and said I should have an arthroscopic surgery. I did this and after a year, having the repeated pain, he said the only thing that could help would be a knee replacement. I was very upset at what he said and told him I would wait. I looked all over and came across the medication called MyOmega Omega 3+ Heat Therapy Cream. With God’s help and my using this 2 to 3 times a day, my pain has almost gone away. I can walk very well without a cane, and even dance a little. I hope this letter may help others who have and still go through what I did.”

-Anthony Cherubino
“Recently my daughter gave me a wonderful present. I am 75 years old and suffer from all kinds of aches and pains, especially backaches. Since I live alone, I cannot apply any medication to my back. Your Omega 3+ Spray is wonderful. It is so easy to use, best of all it works! The feeling of warmth and pain relief lasts for a long time. Thank you for bringing this product to the market, it was long overdue.”

-Chris from Indiana

Do you suffer from chronic pain?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2009 by myomegapain

Chronic pain is very different from acute pain. While acute pain is your body’s way of alerting you to a possible injury, chronic pain is usually a result of past damage. It is persistent and can last for months, weeks or even years. Some causes include arthritis, past injuries or tissue damage, cancer, or certain neurological diseases.

If you suffer from chronic pain, you doctor may recommend oral medications, acupuncture, or even surgery. There are many alternative ways to help with your pain management. Some include psychotherapy, meditation, improved sleep and behavior modification. Studies have shown that a lack of sleep can lower your threshold for pain by 24%*. Unfortunately, chronic pain often causes a lack of sleep, leading to a seemingly endless cycle that is difficult to manage.

The Power of Topical Analgesics

The problem with oral drugs like opioids or narcotic analgesics is that your body builds up a tolerance, and you can become addicted. It is not ideal for long-term pain management. Unlike opioids, topical analgesics are FDA approved, non-addictive and can actually work better over time. Capsaicin has been shown to deplete Substance P, the chemical in your body that signals your brain that you are in pain. When used regularly, this chemical is gradually diminished and you will actually experience less pain over time.

Try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream, a Capsaicin-based topical warming pain reliever that soothes away muscle and joint pain while helping you reach your long-term pain management goals. This advanced formula works quickly to relieve joint pain, muscle aches, cramps and the pain associated with arthritis. It also features timed-release IcePearls™, a soothing cooling complex designed to last up to 6 hours. Make it a part of your pain management plan today.

The Ultimate Foot Rub

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by myomegapain

You’ve never truly had a foot rub until you’ve experienced a MyOmega™ massage. Why? Because MyOmega™ is packed with pain-relieving ingredients and natural anti-inflammatories that will make your toes swoon.

Warming Rub for Cold, Achy Feet

For a penetrating, warming massage, use MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream. If there’s a partner involved, prop their foot up on a pillow (preferably covered with a towel), and begin to massage MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream into their sole, toes and arch using circular motions. This will help stimulate circulation. Work from top to bottom and make sure to take your time with each stroke and not to go too quickly.

Next, massage MyOmega™ into the ankle and begin to slowly rotate the foot at the ankle. This will help loosen up joints and is excellent for arthritis relief. Once the ankle is limber, focus on the arch of the foot by pressing the heel of your hand against the bottom of the foot moving from the ball of the foot to the heel. The penetrating heat of MyOmega™ will accentuate the effects of the massage, so even if you’re not a trained masseuse, your partner will be very, very thankful.

An Invigorating Pick-Me Up Massage

This massage is recommended for athletes and those with hard-working feet in need of a revitalizing massage. For this particular massage you will need to use MyOmega™ Triple Strength Pain Relief Rub.

The initial tingle of Menthol & Camphor is guaranteed to make feet giddy. As you work your way from toes to sole, that little tingle will become a soothing blast of powerfully refreshing pain relief. Menthol “replaces” the pain sensation with a cooling, soothing one, distracting from sore muscles and allowing you to fully indulge in the simple (yet incredible) pleasure of a foot rub. Try it out on yourself or practice on a partner. You’ll never go back to regular lotion foot rubs again!

Heaven!
