What are the ingredients of Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel?
Active Ingredients: Menthol 5% and Camphor 5% are the two active ingredients found in our pain relief product. Based on clinical studies and wide usage, the FDA has recognized both Menthol and Camphor as safe and effective OTC (over-the-counter) drugs. Menthol is a natural white crystal obtained from peppermint oil. It has many medicinal uses—we use it as a pain reliever. Camphor is an aromatic natural crystalline compound obtained from the wood or leaves of the camphor tree using steam distillation. It too has many medicinal uses—we use it for both its pain relief and cooling properties.
Inactive Ingredients and their benefits:
Arnica Montana tincture: For centuries this natural herb has been used for joints and muscles. Many homeopathic practitioners use Arnica and we also feel it is important in a health care regime.
Witch Hazel extract (hamamelis virginiana): A natural extract from the leaves of the plant. It is an astringent. It softens skin and has emollient properties.
Zanthoxylum alatum (sezchuan pepper): This natural extract protects the skin from irritation.
Fucogel: This is a natural skin moisturizer and helps skin retain a silky feel.
Glycerin: Helps the skin retain moisture.
Vitamin E: The green visible Vitamin E in is a natural moisturizer. When the Pain Gel is rubbed into your skin, the beads dissolve leaving the beneficial antioxidant on your skin.
For what types of pain can I use it?
Minor aches, stiffness, and pains of muscles and joints due to simple backache, arthritis, sprains, strains, and bruises.
How do I use Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel?
Children under 2 years of age: Consult a doctor before use.
Adults and children 2 years and older: Apply gel to affected area NO more than 4 times daily. Apply generously to affected and surrounding areas. Use 1 application for minor pain, 2 applications for medium pain, and 3 applications for severe pain. Allow gel to dry between applications. Please note that for best results the pain gel should be applied generously and massaged thoroughly.
Warning: If you have sensitive skin we recommend applying the product to a small area before normal use. As a precaution, it is wise to wash your hands after each application to prevent accidentally introducing into eyes or other sensitive membranes, although rinsing with water will quickly remove any possible discomfort.
How does Doctor Hoy's work?
According to the Food and Drug Administration, our active ingredients are listed as topical or external analgesics. Topical analgesics are medications that are applied topically or externally and help reduce or eliminate pain. The active ingredients work by depressing the cutaneous sensory receptors, which lowers the pain impulse sent from the nerve endings to the brain.
How should Doctor Hoy's be applied?
For best results, apply a generous amount to the affected and surrounding areas. For example, if the front of the knee is the trouble area, apply Doctor Hoy's around the entire knee. This includes above the knee (about mid-thigh area) to the mid-calf area, all around the leg—both front and back. Though it may seem like overkill, pain has a way of migrating and it is important that the gel come in contact with the nerve endings sending pain messages to the brain. Often these nerve endings are not located at the point of the actual pain. If possible, massage the gel into the skin until it has completely absorbed and begins to dry.
How long will I feel relief?
Generally, expect Doctor Hoy's to last from 1 to 5 hours depending on the density of tissue and the location of your pain. The more tissue available to absorb the gel, the longer relief you will experience.
How often should I use Doctor Hoy's?
Use it whenever you have pain. Apply once for minor pain, twice for medium pain and three times for severe pain. NOTE: Do not use Doctor Hoy's more than four times daily.
How long will the scent be noticeable?
As Doctor Hoy's is quickly absorbed, the scent of the Menthol and Camphor will dissipate. Generally, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the scent to completely fade away.
"Thank you for an amazing product!! I am a family physician at the Steingard Sports Medicine Group in Phoenix, AZ. I am a big believer in your product. It is rare that a day goes by without recommending your product. It is so much different that the other topical analgesics because of its formulation and use of Arnica. I recommend Doctor Hoy's gel to many of my patients and it works great!! I send them over to Healthy Habits in Phoenix all the time. My wife, Louise, uses it all the time before her races and she has improved dramatically. She has completed 18 marathons and the most recent one she ran a 3:15!! She also won the Arizona Road Racers Grand Prix Series and the Summer Series for her age division. You have a great product!!" —Jason Turner, MD
"Our customers have loved the DOCTOR HOY'S product. Some quotes are 'Wow, my knee pain is gone!' and 'I tried some DOCTOR HOY'S on my sore shoulder and the soreness went away in 5 minutes'. We have sold through our product twice in less than three weeks. We have a sample bottle on our cash wrap for our customers to try. Within five minutes a customer states that the stuff just works. It becomes an infection in a crowded store. One person comments how DOCTOR HOY'S feels good and then four other people are asking about it. I have sold 5 bottles to five customers after one told everyone else how great DOCTOR HOY'S felt. You have to try it to believe it." —Jeremy Levin, Fleet Feet Sports, Baltimore

"In the past 17 years of practice I have used many products and supplements to help patients relieve their pain. DOCTOR HOY’S has been an extremely valuable find! I would rank DOCTOR HOY’S as the number one product due to ease of application, duration of relief and the variety of symptoms it has effectively treated. My patients have benefited from its use and always tell me about the great relief they have received with DOCTOR HOY’S. I have used it to treat a variety of aliments from arthritis, sprains, strains, overuse syndromes, and chronic pain.It was even used to relieve pain caused by a tooth in need of a root canal (DOCTOR HOY’S was applied to the outside of the cheek over the involved tooth). In addition to being a busy chiropractor, I enjoy running marathons, bike riding and racquetball. I also coach marathon runners and walkers with Living Life After Stroke, a non-profit organization.Most of my participants have found the benefit of DOCTOR HOY’S. They state that it has helped them in their 5-month training program and the completion of their event.

Thank you DOCTOR HOY’S!" —Dr. Christopher Creed, Professional in Dallas, Texas
