If you’re an avid tennis player, or even just an enthusiastic fan, then you know today marks the start of the U.S. Open, the fourth and final major tennis tournament of 2011. Held annually over a two-week period (the weeks before and after Labor Day), the 2011 U.S. Open runs from August 29 to September 11 at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, New York City. Over 600 male and female professional players will compete over the next 14 days, battling through tennis elbow, sore muscles, brush burns and sunburn, all for the love of the game and their goal to win. So as the players hit the court today, here are a few homeopathic medicines that we recommend to help keep them (and you too!), healthy for the entire tournament:
- Arnicare Gel – Our non-sticky, non-greasy gel is quickly absorbed by the skin and has a cooling effect to relieve muscle pain and stiffness after a long match, as well as swelling and discoloration from bruises resulting from court mishaps.
- Calendula Lotion – Our lotion is ideal for soothing large areas of skin (legs, arms, etc.) and helps to heal sunburn and other courtside skin irritations, including rashes and redness.
- Oscillococcinum – A hectic schedule of tennis, family and other extracurricular activities can leave you feeling run down. Nip those symptoms in the bud with Oscillo, and feel like yourself again.
- Calendula Ointment – Small cuts and blisters from your new tennis shoes or racquet grip? Our ointment stays on the skin longer so it protects and moisturizes wounds that may take longer to heal.
