America is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. While oral pain relief is effective, the patient often ends up medicating the entire body – including the brain, heart, stomach, liver, and kidneys.
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Pain Relief products offer an alternative to ‘pill popping’ and habit-forming medications. These products utilize clean, natural ingredients, and formulas that are paraben, petroleum and aspirin-free, and are never tested on animals.
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Pain Relief Gel
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Pain Relief Gel contains a patented Timed-Release Menthol delivery system to deliver extended pain relief. It consists of microscopic capsules of menthol that break on the skin and then are absorbed into the tissue. Once absorbed, these capsules release pain-soothing menthol over an extended period of time, offering longer pain relief.
Menthol has long been used as a natural source of pain relief. It encourages cells and muscles to expand and contract, increasing blood and oxygen flow, which promotes the body’s ability to heal itself.
While many topical analgesics offer pain relief, some patients find them either too hot or too cold. DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Pain Relief Gel – which contains 5% Menthol and 5% Camphor – provides an equal balance of cool and warm sensations. This pH-balanced formula also helps reduce the chances of skin irritation, making the product safe for repeated use. Also important, the gel is petroleum free. (Petroleum-based products tend to float instead of being absorbed into the skin, limiting their pain relief effectiveness.)
Key ingredients in DOCTOR HOY’S™ gel perform specific functions: Witch Hazel draws in the natural ingredients into the cells. Arnica Montana, a natural anti-inflammatory, targets affected areas as the menthol opens cells and connective tissues, providing the ideal scenario for natural healing.

A unique feature of DOCTOR HOY’S™ gel is the ability to adjust the dose to match the severity of the pain. Applying three layers of the gel provides the extra strength many users find effective.

DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Arnica Boost
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Arnica Boost stimulates circulation to promote healing. Arnica Montana is a natural anti-inflammatory and topical analgesic used to reduce swelling and bruising, calm spasms, and relieve arthritic pain. This formula is scent- and sensation-free, making it ideal for impact injuries and for sensitive areas such as the face or groin, or for patients who are sensitive to Menthol and/or Camphor.
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Arnica Boost contains MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). According to a University of Maryland study, this helps the body form connective tissues and improves the permeability of other natural ingredients.
Arnica Montana and Calendula, another ingredient in the formula, have been known to have a calming effect, which could be emotionally therapeutic to nervous and anxious patients. The formula also contains St. John’s Wort, which is frequently used to treat mild anxiety and depression. For a complete list of the product’s natural ingredients, visit www.drhoys.com.

DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Therapy Salts
The medical community continues to debate the scientific evidence of taking bath for pain relief. What we do know is that a good soak in the tub can at least rejuvenate sore muscles, ease an aching back, and potentially reduce chronic pain.
DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Therapy Salts combine the natural healing of Himalayan, Dead Sea, and Epsom Salts, and are infused with 100% Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Lavender, and Arnica Montana essential oils. Warm water, combined with salts and the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of essential oils can increase circulation, prompting the body’s ability to naturally heal itself. DOCTOR HOY’S™ Natural Therapy Salts can also be used as a Salt Compress.
