Does Andrew Have Remedy for Bruising?
My arms are always covered in bruises. It’s over 90 degrees outside and here I sit in long sleeves because my bruises have bruises. If anybody would know how to speed up the fading or avoiding them entirely, I would think Andrew would be my guy. I’m going to Las Vegas in 3 weeks and I don’t want to have to cover up in 100 and up degree temps. Andrew, help!
pammy I hv never heard him discuss it but I do take his Marine Collagen Peptides w/ msm. He did say it will strengthen the blood vessels!
However you might look into homeopathic arnica tablets and topical arnica creams too. I find if I put the cream on moments after the injury my skin will not turn color. you can ask lord google and probably find the goods at a local health food store or amazon.
are you bumping into things? do you take a lot of asprin? There are some medications that weaken the blood vessel so you might want to discuss counter indications with your Dr.
I don’t know of a particular supplement offered by Andrew Lessman but look for something containing Rutin and Vitamin C. Also make sure you are eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. If you are on any medications such as blood thinners, aspirin or prednisone, this could cause the bruising. If I were you, I’d see my doctor to rule out any underlying medical issues but it can’t hurt to start taking vitamin C in the mean time and eating your fruits and veggies. Hope that helps. 😀
His Vitamin K 500 has helped me. It helps clot. I have used it before surgery too and it has helped to prevent bruising too.
Thanks everybody for all of your answers. I will check each and every one of them out and see if they help. I’m not on blood thinners or aspirin and lots of times I don’t even know that I have bumped into something and can’t figure out how I got them. I did discover one cause. When I am unloading the car after a grocery store trip, I try to carry as many bags at once as possible. LOL. I put the plastic bags all up and down my arms. I realized just recently that causes a lot of bruising. I stopped doing that but it’s still happening. Thanks again everyone.
Pammy I suffer from the same thing. It’s especially bad on the back of my hands and forearm area. I saw several specialists about 8 years ago and no one had an explanation even when I had several to be examined. It has gotten better on my arms over the years though, not as frequent. It starts as a red spot then turns purple lasting up to 10-14 days. Mine happens mysteriously like yours without any bumping or scraping. If I lightly bump them on something it lasts much longer, ugh. I think it’s also some type of sensitivity to certain things like dust, etc. What has really helped me is I buy a cheap foundation, L’Oréal Tru match (not my expensive face foundation), specifically to put a super light coat on the back of my hands every morning and set it with setting powder so stop any transfer. I swear by doing this it acts as a protective barrier and has decreased the bruise looking spots by 75%. When one shows up I spray arnica 4% (max available ) on the area several times a night. I don’t think the over the counter arnica cream works as well as the spray. I don’t think there is a supplement that will help. I would love to get some prescription strength arnica tablets. Like you I have to be careful carrying multiple grocery bags and keep them in my hands not up the arm. For some reason going through racks of clothes when out shopping almost guarantees it happening no matter how careful I am, same with schlepping luggage and flying. I’m sorry this is happening to you.
Velvet, I did put some foundation on my arms but (to me) it just looked funny. It didn’t cover the darker bruises by any means. I didn’t know whether to just do the whole arm or just the bruises. I thought about going to Ulta or Merle Norman and ask their opinion. Lots of times when I’m told something is “full coverage”, it’s not. I’m thinking specifically of It on QVC. They do a demo with a model with horrible skin. It covered it beautifully. I have very minor discoloration and it didn’t cover it worth a flip. All of you have mentioned products I have never heard of. I am going to write them all down and go to the drugstore or to Amazon and see what I can do. I knew I brought this issue to the right place.
I have the bruising from taking prednisone.
I eat more protein now, stay hydrated, moisturize my skin, vitamin C supplements, vitamin E oil on my bruises and cuts.
Collagen was mentioned by the doctor also.
Enjoy your vacation.
@mooncat3, this should help with bruising, also. It sounds like it helps with a lot of things. Thanks. I will use my 20% coupon on this today. @velveteenrabbit7 I found some Merle Norman correction creme and Adrian’s powder to go over it. I think my mistake before was putting it on and making a snap decision that it didn’t look good. This time I kept it on and now I think it looks 100% better. I still plan on following everybody’s advice.
Pammy as you have probably discovered, after applying a little cover up it blends right in after a few minutes . From a distance of 2-3 feet they are hardly noticeable. I doubt anyone will be standing 2 feet from you!
Go see a doctor.Bruising can be caused by many things.Don’t play doctor,go see one!!!!
Thanks, ladies, I will definitely bring it up with my doctor and see what he says.
Would be a good idea to ask your doctor to test you
for low thyroid and anemia. In my family, bruising
too often for no good reason has been caused by
low thyroid & anemia issues (and anemia can be
a secondary effect of the thyroid being off.)
You need a really good doctor to test for thyroid,
though, as most don’t do enough blood tests to
pick it up, and then you need someone real smart
to interpret the results. Thyroid tests they should run
would be Free T4, Free T3, TSH, and also the blood
tests to check for thyroid antibodies (which many
docs don’t do but are super-important in picking
up a problem in some people, like my brother.)
As for anemia tests, they should do a ferritin
blood test (iron storage) as well as a regular
blood count…..I heard there are other anemia
lab tests, too, that are helpful but I don’t know
what they’re called. Of course, there’s other things
that can cause frequent bruising, but I wanted
to share this because of my family’s experiences.
Good luck to you! JollyJelly
I would get a scratch on my forearms that would spread outwards like ink blots and take 2+ weeks to fade. My doctor said my clotting is perfect and it is just aging skin, no remedy, the lady who does my facials said I needed to moisturize. When I got a puppy with sharp teeth and claws I became desperate and tried many things. I came across an article that claims that it is caused by weak aging capillaries, within days of taking Andrews Circulation and Vein Support the difference was remarkable. Now if the puppy scratches it does not spread outwards and disappears within a week. I do not bruise as easily. I also think that if it is improving the capillaries that I can see, imagine how it is benefiting all of those that I do not see! I realize this will not be the solution for everyone, but hope it will be helpful to some
Take arnica you can get it as supplement at Whole Foods or online at amazon
