Krav Maga And Bruises
I'm new in this forum. I have been gluten-free/Paleo/Bulletproof for more than I year now and I feel amazing.
I started practicing Krav Maga last September and I love it, but almost every week I get some big bruises or aching muscles. I won't take pain killers or anti-inflamatory medicine, so I found a few things that really help and I wanted to share with you all:
1) For sore hands: I put ice and water in a bowl with 3 drops of rosemary, 2 drops of lavender and 1 drop of geranium ess. oils and leave my hands there as much as I can.
2) homoeopathic arnica pellets (30c), taken as soon as possible and every 3-4 hours
3) epsom salts hot baths
4) KT tape. This is amazing and there are plenty of videos in youtube on how to use it.
I also put collagen in my BP coffee every morning and take more glutathione if I am healing.
last week I got hit several times in my forearm (defense agains a knife) and I got a really bad bruise and I almost couldn't move my hand for two days.
The inflammation is almost gone now but I feel a couple of bumps that hurt when I touch them and I don't know what to do about them.
Anyone here have some advice for those? Or advice in general about how to treat injuries, what supplements are good for recovery, healing, etc.?
