I am not a doctor, not even a health professional, so I won’t profess to have any knowledge about joint pain and what causes or cures it except for my own experience. That said, I have pain in my fingers and right elbow almost constantly – my fingers from arthritis, my elbow from repetitive motion (typing).  Most days the pain is so bad that I have to take 3 Ibuprofen tablets, several times a day, to take the edge off the pain.  The problem is that  I hate the rebound headaches I get from taking that much Ibuprofen.  Additionally,  it always bugged me that I was ingesting medicine that went throughout my body, when my pain was very localized.

I decided there must be something better out there so I set out on an internet trek to find a solution. After lots of research, I decided on Naturally Vitamins Medizym Cream.  It’s an organic menthol extracted from field mint with plant enzymes to aid in stabilizing the cream and to boost its potency.  The cream also includes soothing herbs that have been used for centuries to help the cream absorb quickly and penetrate deeply.

Does it work? For me, beautifully.  I didn’t think it would get to my elbow pain as it’s very deep, but it does.  I also cover all of my fingers and within 5 minutes I start feeling relief.  The scent is pleasant, not overwhelming and certainly not as stinky as Ben Gay!  The cream is light, absorbs well, and the relief lasts several hours for me.


I’m thrilled to have found tropical relief for my arthritis and repetitive motion issues
.  The fact that it’s organic is a huge plus for me.  The cost is reasonable – $7 – $13 at various online retailers for a 2oz tube.
