It is quite upsetting to see our grandparents or parents endure severe joint pains. Old age brings on its set of problems, one of the worst being weakening muscles. As cold or hot packs are reliable friends for people with arthritis, why not give them a gift that will help them reduce their joint pain in an environmentally-friendly, chemical-free manner?
Aksobha, an organisation working in the wellness sector has designed hot and cold packs with natural herbs packed in cotton fabric. This eco-friendly pack will do its job without harming the environment, unlike the gel-packs you find in medical stores.
How can I get rid of my joint pain?
Fatigue, in addition to joint pain, tendering or swelling are some of the earliest signs of arthritis. About 180 million people in India suffer from the disorder. If your parents, or grandparents complain of constant knee pain or joint pain, you must get them checked. In the meanwhile, don’t forget to give them a pack that can be heated or refrigerated.
Why are Aksobha’s packs awesome?
These cotton fabric packs are filled with natural herbs, seeds and essential oils, and combine hot and cold therapy with aromatherapy. The pack is reusable and you don’t need to wash it. To clean it, just wipe it with a damp cotton cloth.
