Q: How does Lehcare analgesic cream work?
Dr. Henry Cheng: Lehcare is the newest recruit in our ammunition against musculo-skeletal sores. It is a combination of traditional remedies with homeopathic and herbal medicine, a true reflection of my integrative philosophy. Homeopathic medicine stimulates the body’s own defense mechanism. Herbal and traditional medicines kill pain and inflammation. So, the homeopathic Arnica works hand in hand with herbs like boswelia, devil’s claw, white willow bark, myrrh, and ginger. Menthol relieves the heat from inflammation, while a special capsacin extract called SenseHot offers soothing warmth for chronic rheumatism. A cream base made of emu oil ensures effective penetration through the skin. Vitamin E, bee wax, urea, and glycerin moisturize the skin and prevent any local irritation.
