Hi,
This is being promoted as:

“TremorSoothe is a safe, non-addictive, natural herbal remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients especially selected to temporarily control shakes, tremors, twitches and muscle spasms. TremorSoothe should be taken at the first sign of symptoms for the short-term improvement of muscular-skeletal and nervous system health. TremorSoothe is taken internally and works to support the neurological messages sent to various parts of the body including the hands, feet, arms, legs, torso, and face. Presented in small dissolvable tablets, TremorSoothe is easy to ingest and hassle-free with no artificial colors or preservatives.

TremorSoothe Temporarily:

  Controls shaking and spasms
  Reduces twitches and tremors

Also “TremorSoothe is a homeopathic remedy registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “

Has any one any experience of this product? Is it genuine or a hoax?
Thanks

It’s probably a genuine product, but being homeopathic it won’t work. wink

I suspect it is useless.

Cannabis is currently a suggested treatment for tremors in MS sufferers.

http://www.nationalmssociety.org/about-multiple-sclerosis/what-we-know-about-ms/treatments/complementary—alternative-medicine/marijuana/index.aspx

It is also “easy to ingest and hassle-free with no artificial colors or preservatives”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treatment_of_multiple_sclerosis#Medical_treatments_for_symptoms It has been formultaed into Sativex http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nabiximols Which is available in some countries, but not those who still consider Cannabis a danger to society.

It’s homeopathic, so yeah, it is useless.

As for cannabis, woo for California! Sadly of course, you get a LOT of folks abusing such a privilage. It’s a bit like saying ‘we want to help homeless people’; everyone thinks of the filthy guy who begs for change outside the 7/11, not the family who’ve been living out of their car since their house was foreclosed.

BTW, the ingredients: (It’s almost poetic.)

TremorSoothe contains the following homeopathic ingredients in therapeutic dosages and equal parts:

    Stramonium (6C) is best suited to those who desire light and prefer not to be alone. Symptoms tend to worsen in solitude, with the head feeling as if it is scattered about. Twitching of single muscles or groups of muscles, especially in the upper part of body, may occur.
  Mag. phos. (D6) is a salt with an affinity for the nervous system, and a deficiency can result in cramps and spasms. It is fast-acting to quickly relieve muscular twitches, hiccups, cramps, and sharp twinges of pain. Symptoms are usually worse from cold and touch, and improve with heat and pressure, such as massage.
  Agaricus muscarius (6C) is an ingredient of a remedy proved by Dr. Stapf in 1928. People who would benefit from this remedy are commonly anxious, fearful, and generally nervous. Physically, they may be clumsy, twitchy, and sensitive to cold and damp weather. Symptoms tend to worsen after sexual intercourse, before thunderstorms, or after eating. Symptoms usually improve with slow movement, sleep, and warmth.
  Tarentula (6C) is most effective for twitchiness of the limbs and jerking of muscles. It is commonly beneficial to people that are affected by music, impatience that borders on nervousness, a sense of urgency, and a feeling of not being able to sit still. Frequently individuals suiting this remedy find themselves sick with restlessness that prevents them from getting rest, which frequently extends the period of convalescence. Conditions that make the symptoms worse include cold weather, change of weather, and noise. Factors that tend to improve symptoms include massage, music, fresh air, and rest.

  Lactose (inactive ingredient)

These two people have clearly devoted their entire lives to trying and double blind testing homeopathic remedies.  I’m glad we have two such experts telling us whether or not certain medicines will have the desired efferct!

The point is, those people selling homeopathic medicines ( & claiming such medicines are effective ) are the ones with the onus to prove their claims ( with such tools as double blind testing ).  It isn’t up to people who doubt the medicines work to prove they don’t work.

Perhaps, but making blanket comments such as, oh it’s homeopathic, therefore it won’t work are disingenuous at best.

I’ll admit, I’m still unsure that most homeopathic medicine can possibly work. But I wouldn’t go around saying it definitely won’t work as if I’d gotten a PHD on the subject. I would answer ‘I don’t know,’ because thats the truth! I don’t know, I haven’t tried the item in question. Chances are I won’t try it because I don’t have the ailment it’s prescribed to cure. I definitely wouldn’t say it doesn’t work, unless I hear overwhelmingly from people who have tried it properly and who then report it doesn’t work!

True, the proper response for doubters who hear the claims of the pro-homeopathy crowd is “prove it”;  not “it doesn’t work”.  As soon as they state “it doesn’t work”, they are making a conter claim & be asked for their proof.

Speaking from personal experience, I have a close friend who received her doctorate in homeopathic medicine & I allowed her to treat my exczema homeopathically.  Regular doctors treated me with a topical steroid that did eliminate the exczema as long as I applied it a couple times a week.

This went on for about 4 years until she treated me with her homeopathic mdicines,  and the exczema hasn’t returned.  I wouldn’t claim my one case is proof homeopathy works, likely it was the placebo effect or a coincidence.  She has since abandoned homeopathy, since I was her only patient that had positive results after her treatments.
