Arthritis is one of the most common health conditions that develop through ageing, impacting not only mobility but a person’s quality of life. It can become incredibly debilitating, painful and uncomfortable for those who suffer with it and although there’s options for relief, sometimes nothing seems to work.
Sadly, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare it’s estimated that one in seven people are living with some form of arthritis. And while it can affect anyone at any age, it’s generally an issue for older members of the community. There’s over 100 types of arthritis that affect the joints, with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and gout being the main offenders.
The condition typically begins in the smaller joints of the hands, wrists and feet, however if not appropriately managed, ongoing inflammation can lead to irreversible joint damage and loss of function.
“[This can] result in decreased mobility, reduced strength and a lack of function – especially grip strength and inability to use fingers effectively,” physiotherapist Kusal Goondewardena said.
The good news is there are ways to relieve the pain and bring back some mobility in the body, including the use of Kunzea Cream. The specially formulated cream may help to temporarily relieve joint inflammation and swelling associated with mild arthritis, relieve muscular aches and pains and even improve joint mobility for those living with mild arthritis.
The results vary between people and their condition, but it’s had great reviews online from happy customers – close to 1,000 5-star reviews in fact!
“Kunzea Cream has been such a relief to my 65-year-old husband, he can now get back out into his beloved garden without pain in his joints,” one person wrote. “He says he feels like a 40-year-old.”
“The very best cream for my wrist arthritis,” another said. “Without this brilliant cream I wouldn’t have been able to continue my knitting and crocheting. [It] also reduced the size of a ganglion on the palm of my hand by half. [I] have now introduced three of my friends to this cream.”
And a third added: “I’m really impressed with this product. Have only used it a couple of times at night and it has eased my hip pain. It has a strong smell but that’s the ingredients. My friend tried some on his finger as he had some arthritis and it worked a treat.”
The cream is made primarily from Kunzea Oil which is derived from the Kunzea ambiqua plant which grows in the pristine wilderness in Tasmania. However, it also includes macadamia oil, shea butter and rosehip oil – just to name a few. And it’s available for purchase on the Starts at 60 Marketplace.
Plus, it’s super easy to apply. All you need to do is apply 2-5 grams on the affected area three to four times a day – or as required. Then gently rub in a circular motion until it’s evenly spread and absorbed into the skin. You can also use it in conjunction with other Kunzea products including the massage oil or the bath salts.
