I had pretty much decided I would learn to live with the exruciating pain of arthritis when out of desperation (and wanting to be able to walk with my kids) I tried Australian Dream. I almost didn't buy it because of the price and I thought it may end up in the failure pile of products.
I'm glad I took the chance. It has made an amazing difference in my life. I use it about four times a day, and I am pain-free. If I know I'm going to be out walking quite a bit, or on my feet more than usual, I use it right before I go out.
I am now ordering back up supplies so I never run out of it, I highly recommend it!
UPDATE JANUARY 6, 2013
I did end up having a total knee replacement in July of 2010.
Even though the Australian Dream worked for the pain and inflammation I wanted to live without having pain return, so I went for the surgery.
While many people breeze through knee replacement, just as many do not. It is a surgery that basically amputates a portion of your leg and replaces it with an artificial solution. The serious recovery time (in home health care, blood thinners, narcotic pain relievers, occupational and physical therapy, using a walker then a cane, no driving, etc.) took 6 weeks. The "back to normal life and activities" still hasn't happened, 2 1/2 years later. I have different issues with the artificial joint, but issues nonetheless.
Now my other knee needs done. I'm 48, and I still have children at home. I'm not going through that again just to gamble, hoping for a halfway solution.Read more ›
I take 800 mg ibuprofen but do not want to load up the liver with that stuff. Know a person that died from that. So I heard the advertisement, and decided to give Australian Dream Cream a chance.
Well, it works, at least for me, plain and simple. I take two finger tips, dip in the jar and rub it in at the source of the ache. It goes away in about 5 minutes, and stays that way for 8 or so hours.
It's great for mild arthritis related pain. The positive effects are tied to the active ingredient Histamine dihydrochlorideInactive increasing blood flow to the treated region. So essentially this reproduces the effect of icing. After four ACL surgeries and years of physical therapy on my knees, pain, and now osteoarthritis, I can tell you that icing my knee works well. It's also a total pain in the butt. This seems to provide the same positive effects without the effort of icing.
The negative reviews seem to come from people with severe arthritic pain. This makes sense since it doesn't contain any pain blocking agents, so for people with severe pain, this probably won't do much for them. However, if you have pain that can benefit from increased blood flow to let you body treat the pain point this will likely help. While expensive compared to other creams they have their money back guarantee so I'd give it a shot. Based on what I've seen it looks like they honor the refunds when people send them in. But again, if you have really bad pain, it looks like this might not help.
I'm planning on using it as part of a pain overall reduction strategy. My plan is to use it as my main long-term treatment for pain along with physical therapy. The side effects are minimal and it works for me. I'll still use the more powerful stuff / pain blockers when my knee hurts really bad after activity or a long drive / flight. But this is a great compliment and I'm stoked that I found it.
I hope this review helps!
