FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT X-Celerel and TherapEze

Top

Why it is important to deal with both pain and inflammation

Pain and inflammation are pyhsiological responses to injury and disease designed to encourage the body to heal and protect itself from further damage. Most pain exists because nerves are either damaged or because tissue and fluids are applying compression on the nerve. With skeletal pain swelling is often visible, and body temperature at the site of pain is usually elevated. In addition, the inflammation is sometimes associated with skin redness. Sometimes good therapy might involve working through the pain and inflammation with appropriate exercise and the use of cold to reduce pain and inflammation followed by mild heat to loosen stiff muscles. Unfortunately, pain and inflammation become a vicious circle. Pain creates a message in the body that says 'SEND FLUIDS HERE, HEALING AND CUSHIONING ARE NEEDED'. Fluid pressure, on the other hand SQUEEZES NERVES AND OTHER TISSUE AGGRAVATING PAIN AND RESTRICTING MOVEMENT. It is therefore more effective if both events are eliminated or reduced to break the cycle.

Why we recommend that X-Celerel be used prior to cold cold application of the TherapEze pad

In nature there are several wonderful devices available for soothing nerve and inflammatory responses, two are natural compounds used in X-Celerel and a third is a physiotherapeutic mechanism, such as that utilized in the TherapEze pad. X-Celerel is a massage therapy cream with a unique combination of both of these natural compounds in conjunction with a natural herbal vegetable oils to optimize wetting and encourage skin absorption. The massage effect alone has some effect in pain relieving qualities. However, combined with the cold therapy its efficacy increases four to ten times (please refer to the how X-Celerel works page by clicking this question above).

Life of the TherapEze pad

The TherapEze cold and hot pad is made of a new tough, flexible rubber that retains both heat and cold, transferring it directly to joints or muscles to provide superior therapeutic treatment for injuries or chronic pain management. It is made for thousands of uses, and can last for years.

X-Celerel is Sulfa free. MSM is an ingredient found in the X-Celerel cream.

X-Celerel does not contain any Sulfa drugs. They are completely different. The MSM molecule, or methyl-sulfonyl-methane, contains in its structure the mineral element Sulfur which is an essential mineral required by the human body. In a healthy diet we ingest such mineral elements in the foods that we eat. A diet rich in vegetables absorbs a healthy amount of SULFUR – bitter herbs, broccoli, fruits, etc. Often these vegetables deliver this sulfur in the form of MSM. NEITHER SULFUR, NOR THIS ORGANIC COMPOUND SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH THE ANTIBACTERIAL SULFA DRUGS (please notice the difference in spelling). Sulfa drugs are by design toxic synthetic antimicrobial agents and are completely different from the mineral Sulfur or the natural natural organic compounds such as MSM. MSM has been extensively studied for anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Due to X-Celerel unique formulation and application method, MSM along with other Aloe Vera components can be infused through the skin.

Allergic sensitivity to X-Celerel

Rarely is anyone allergic to the ingredients in X-Celerel. X-Celerel contains natural compounds that are found in the human body and plants. Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed. Some people have been reported allergic to MSM taken orally and in large doses - between 1 and 3 grams. The MSM dosage applied to the skin in the X-Celerel formulation is very small - only 7% of the weight of the cream. Consult with a health care professional before using this or any product during pregnancy, or if you have a serious medical condition.

The Nature of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant that grows in arid climates such as the Arizona deserts. (See the Products page for a picture) For centuries it has been well accepted as having amazing properties for treating and helping with many disorders in the human body. For centuries among indigenous people, it has been the favorite natural treatment for burns and burn pain because of its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. In addition, cosmetic companies add its sap or other derivatives to various products - makeup, moisturizers, soaps, sunscreens, shampoos and lotions. It is also supposed to be useful for dry skin conditions, especially eczema. The X-Celerel formula when used correctly enables some infusion of this juice through the waterproof barrier of the skin.

Indications for Cold and Heat

Indeed cold is better for pain because it reduces swelling (a reaction that places pressure on nerves) and it numbs pain. Heat is most useful to relax stiff muscles because it increases circulation in the injured areas. Sometimes physical therapists apply heat after cold treatments or before exercise.

Chilling temperature for TherapEze cold pads.


The TherapEze cold pads can be placed directly into your freezer. The temperature can go to -5ºF in a typical refrigerator freezer or even low as -20ºF in the deep freeze. Your cold pad will remain soft and pliable and within moments of skin contact will be very comfortable even at the lowest temperature. It will conform to your specific area of your joints or muscles and provide you with superior therapeutic treatment for injuries and chronic pain management.

Top

Storage of X-Celerel

Never chill X-Celerel. Only store at room temperature. Chilling can cause the MSM to crystallize out and make the cream gritty. Keep container capped to prevent spillage and evaporation.






Top

Pad leakage

TherapEze can not leak even if punctured. As with any material, with enough stress, it can be damaged, but even though it is very soft, there is no liquid inside to leak. This newly developed material was engineered by Clint Fruitman, a materials scientist and biomedical engineer, to be used repeatedly and efficiently for muscle and joint pain relief. It is excellent as therapeutic treatment of injuries and chronic pain management.

Top

Cold duration of TherapEze

The recommended time for cold therapy is 15 minutes. The TherapEze pad might stay colder longer if chilled in the deep freeze, but its effectiveness diminishes as the pad warms up. From either the refrigerator freezer or the deep freeze, TherapEze usually works well for the entire 15 minute therapy period. This pad can be used repeatedly throughout the day. In a freezer it cools down rapidly.






Top

X-Celerel dosage

The ingredients of cream you can use. However, for effective usage a ¼ to ½ teaspoon over a small area should be sufficient, e.g., ½ teaspoon for one application to the lower back and massage until dry. More will be needed for larger areas. Sometimes repeat doses are useful.




Top

Changing a TherapEze pad's temperature rapidly into its heating mode

The uniquely formulated material of the TherapEze pad can go directly from the freezer to the microwave. It will just take longer to heat than a room temperature pad. However, as with any heating pad, caution should be used to prevent overheating. Trial and error is necessary because each microwave heats differently. Recommended use temperature is 135º F with the pad placed on fabric, such as t-shirts or towels, to protect the skin.

Top

TherapEze shapes

The TherapEze pad’s unique softness and flexibility even when frozen allow it to easily conform to different areas of the body. The oval shapes can be used almost anywhere. The size you choose should be dependent on areas of pain you need to treat. If you wrap the large oval in an spiral shape it will conform more tightly around the ankles and feet. Small ovals are usually just folded over the hand as seen in the illustration on the exhibition page.




Top

Cleaning the TherapEze pad

The TherapEze pad is made of patent pending tough, flexible rubber and can be cleaned with soap and water, mineral spirits or alcohol. It is best if towel dried and coated with a thin layer of baby powder or corn starch before freezing.

PAIN MEDS NOT WORKING

Glossary
Top

Sometimes the wrong drug is taken for a given type of pain. E.g., an anti-inflammatory might be needed but a Central Nervous System suppressant is taken. Even something as simple as a heating pad that feels good initially can aggravate pain into a much worse state. Drug tolerence is also a condition that commonly reduces effective potency.

DRUG TOLERENCE

Glossary
Top

Frequent use of analgesics often results in ineffectiveness. The body's metabolism and nervous system get so used to an analgesic that the dosages become both less effective and shorter acting. Increasing dosages only helps in the short run and long term effects of higher dosages can be disastrous.

MINIMAL RELIEF

Glossary
Top

Sometimes, because a drug just doesn’t work on the cause or location of pain, and sometimes, because of drug tolerance or other factors, adequate relief just isn’t achieved. In testing of different types and levels of pain, X-Celerel and TherapEze, when used together and as directed, have achieved noticeable pain relief in 97% of the people who have tried them. In most cases, relief is fast. In a few cases, such as deep knee pain, as much as 4 hours has passed before pain is noticeably diminished and with severe pain, second treatments were needed. However, all of the people who had success with it reported that the relief has been long lasting.

SIDE EFFECTS

Glossary
Top

Analgesic side effects are many including GI ulceration, kidney damage, addiction, tolerance, behavioral abnormalities, lightheadedness, nausea, respiratory depression and death. X-Celerel and TherapEze are healthy alternatives to analgesics and can be used as often as necessary.

NEED RELIEF NOW

Glossary
Top

The unique and simple self applied combination of an X-Celerel massage followed by TherapEze treatment can have rapid and lasting pain relief. Unless injected, drugs take time to be absorbed and delivered to parts of the body where they are needed. The rapid acting combination of X-Celerel followed by cold TherapEze can provide lasting pain relief.

PAIN SPECIALISTS

Glossary
Top

Pain specialists provide periodic nerve injections (sometimes quite painful) of anesthetics mixed with steroids to relieve inflammation. Even when they inject the right spot, the injection may be effective for only one month.

TENS

Glossary
Top

TENS (transcutaneous, electrical nerve stimulation), (by prescription only in the U.S.A.) is often worn all day and activated by the patient as needed, typically every 1/2 hour for 15 to 30 minutes. The sticky electrodes tend to get caught on garments and peel away from the skin which creates painful shocking. After prolonged use, the patient gets TENS irritation and is confronted with a decision of accepting device irritation or tolerating the pain.

SCS while being very effective is a surgical procedure and sometimes involves infectious risk with wires permanently pierced through the skin.

BACK SURGERY

Back Surgery has been only 80% successful for one disc injury and the success rate goes down dramatically with each additional disc injury
