Hello Alan. Well I have now been taking the new improved tonic since Monday and I am honestly definitely starting to see a difference. The pain is actually lessening and more importantly ( from my selfish point of view!) it is helping reduce symptoms of stiffness. It’s interesting as the flavour is completely different and the consistency is different to the old remedy. I am a big fan of the new taste and consistency.  The level of pain diminishes quite quickly after taking tonic. I am now experiencing just a dull pain level rather than the excruciating pain I was in before so it is a  big improvement. Stiffness isn’t removed  but it is slightly lessened. Definitely is some more movement in my fingers which is great news. I’m hoping as days pass stiffness will also reduces in shoulders and knees. I am taking it 4x a day. Jennifer


Hi Alan, I wanted to tell you how thrilled I am with your new PainLess Tonic. I've only been on it for 2 months but already I am more than 50% with less pain in my knees, ankle and back. I'm over the moon! What's also amazing is that since I've been on your wonderful herbal mixture, the keratosis I've had on my back for over 20 years has gone! Not only that, I had rosacea too, and that has completely disappeared! No wonder I am thrilled!! Thank you for your expertise and constant support and invaluable advice. Elizabeth. London


"The products for mums arthritis have been tremendous. Mum's mood has been transformed due to your depression less tonic.
I have absolute faith in your products Alan and I thank you." Jemma


Hi Alan, Since receiving your Painless Tonic and Lotion with DMSO, my pain has subsided considerably. Thank you for this relief. I had a meeting with a Consultant at UCL, who showed me XRays and CT Scarkin of spine. It appears from these that I have Osteoarthritis in lower spine, hips, left worse (sciatica leg). Can’t thank you enough as always. Karen.


Hello Alan, since using cbd cream and pain Xs cream my [painful, swollen] knees have gone back to usual size and so have my ankles!!
So yes joints is going really well and everyone is amazed.
The next amazing thing is that I definitely had start of flu and that normally means all my joints become seriously inflamed and it used to take antibiotics and about 3 weeks to properly recover. I stick to the keto diet, took your coldless tonic lots of times for 48 hours and haven’t missed a day of work!! Plus no inflammation and no antiobiotocs!!
Thank you so much for all your advice and remedies :)  Jenny


PainLessJoints Tonic is a multiherbal remedy that works synergistically. Herbs for this condition include antiinflammatory herbs for the synovial membrane that is inflamed along with other areas of the joint that react to this inflamed space (the joint capsule) which can cause distortion and pain, also herbs that help the immune system to be restored to protecting its own (countering the autoimmune action of this disease); the herbs are also for general muscular stiffness, aches and pains.

Hi Alan, The Painless Joints Tonic has helped considerably. The inflammation is a lot better. Thank you. Jo

Swimming, good diet and weight loss is imortant for helping to ease the pain and improve the clearingof this condition. Many herbs are useful and necessary for such a condition as arthritis, such as: neem leaf, chaparral leaf, cibot, black poplar, black Cohosh, turmeric, yellow jasmine, meadowsweet, turmeric, gravel root, guai gum, greater gentian, devil’s claw, Bogbean, noni, cork tree, black willow, sandalwood, nettle, cats claw, corn silk.
A lotion or liniment rubbed into the joint regularly every day is very useful to ease the stiffness and pain.


"Dear Alan, Just a short note to let you know that your remedy has been doing me good. My limbs are feeling much better and my arms can now reach round to my back (a movement which was too painful to do before). All this and I have been through only about half of the tonic.
I am so pleased that you were, once again, able to help me. I am 71 this year! I would be glad if you could use this letter to help others. Many thanks."
Pat Wilter. Wales.


"This tonic really works! It's the most effective medicine I've taken in the 10 years I've been trying to treat my arthritis."


PainLess Joints Tonic

There are some very good herbal analgesics for arthritis; the best available is PainLess Tonic and Lotion. This has helped a lot of people with serious arthritic pain, so I'd expect it to help you as well. The dose is scaled up as the patient gets used to the herbs. Start on 1tsp twice daily in water, and slowly increase the dose, even to 2tsp four times daily, but this may not be necessary. I recommend you start on a 555ml size bottle to give it a chance to work. We also have a specific herbal lotion to apply to particularly painful joints.
I also recommend the ABC Daily Herbal NutriPowder for complete nutritional back-up to your system.


Hi Alan, Thank you so much for your kind words. I am just so determined and although I do still have some pain I am really focused on what I can take or do to help my body. When I did the first 24 hr fast it struck me that we literally control how our bodies respond. For years due to the RA I had fallen into the trap that medication was the key to how our bodies respond BUT that is a lie....we have the choice and the control but we have to consistently follow that path even on challenging days....that’s my thoughts anyway!!
Just love your interpretation of sleep being a cuddly that. I promise I will be careful with the High10 coffee. At present I use a heaped teaspoon so will show much more restraint!!
Hope your having a great day, I am charging home to make quick juice from celery and cucumber and possibly a speedy salad!!
Jennifer. Portsmouth


Dear Alan, Pains in my back and knees from arthritis have been so bad for the last 4 months that I havent been able to get in and out of bed (I slept on a lounge chair). Drugs just made me feel worse. I went into our local health shop for help. Another customer overheard my story and pulled me aside to tell me of yourself and what you had done for her. So I ordered your PainLess Tonic and ABC powder. I'm overjoyed that within a month I'm able to get in and out of bed and even do a bit of gardening. I also have diverticulitis and your treatment has clearly helped that too with its antiinflammatory action. I'm 68. I'm so pleased and I can't thank you enough. Mrs Monk

Alan. Earlier on this year I took Painless tonic. This was amazingly successful. Inflammation (knees , legs, wrist) stopped as if by magic. Thank you so much. Rosemary

Hi Alan, I was taking Chinese herbal pills for very painful hips and knees and they were really effective. But due to licensing legislation they were removed from the market. I came to you rather desperate! You gave me PainLess to try. I was very very happy with it because it was both more effective than the pills I'd relied on for years, and less expensive which I was very pleased about too!
Thank you for an excellent product and your professional advice and service. Terry


Hi Alan, So far the DMSO herbal joint pain lotion has worked wonders, on the night of the third day of applying it twice daily, I slept all through the night without any sharp pains in the knee. Haven't had a sharp pain since Saturday but I'm still applying the DMSO lotion everyday. Thanks a million! Elly


I've been in agony with my joints for a very long time so I decided to try your lotion when my daughter told me about it. And I have to admit that as soon as I started using it I noticed a difference. I am now also taking the PainLess Joints Tonic and there's such and improvement now that I'm able to go to yoga classes again. I can't recommend it enough. Thank you so much. Mrs R. McHugh


I swear by your PainLess Tonic! It's my life-saver! I really don't know what I'd do without it. I've tried so many products and nothing has worked like your tonic. It's wonderful, thank you. Mr Goodman, London

I know it will take me time to properly heal but I am very determined!!  Jenn

Alan Hopking, herbal practitioner for over 35 years, says, "Back pain is one of the most debilitating conditions that one can have. It can affect all activities and social interactions. When back pain is chronic (i.e. not temporary) it is caused by structural changes due to an ageing spine (osteoporosis) to accidents that have permanently shifted the vertebae. It is very important for your lifestyle to do all you can to get relief. If you don't, depression and social alienation can result. To effect a natural pain-killer that doesn't harm your health in the long-term as do drugs, it is essential to eat clean, organic foods, and also take internal herbal medicine, the best is PainLess Joints Tonic. this tonic boosts the system, improves circulation, improves endorphin release, and strengthens the immune system's resistance to vulnerability to bacterial and viral conditions which can result from serious pain. Apply the powerful Back Pain Cream made from the best analgesic herbs known, and take the internal PainLess Herbal Tonic for significant relief so that you can live a happy, full life again."

3. Dupuytrens Contracture

Also called trigger finger. This is a thickening of the fibrous tendons in the palm of the hand causing contracture or pulling of the fingers towards the palm. Affects 4th and 5th fingers usually both hands (also applies to feet and toes). It usually has a family history. More commen in men over 50. Linked to diabetes, and alcohol abuse, but the cause is unknown.
Herbal treatment. If there is diabetes (or it is in the family) we recommend PancreaseMore and Stevia. External treatment for dupuytrens involves liniments or lotions with herbs that are antispasmodics, i.e. cramp bark, lobelia, cayenne, valerian, etc. I regard liniments to work best for this condition.


"I wanted to let you know that the lotion for my Dupuytrens Contracture that I received from you last November has made a huge difference to my little finger. I now no longer have problems holding heavy pans, it does not ache, and the finger itself has begun to straighten out. Thank you so much – I am thrilled with the result." L. Middlehurst. England


Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move more, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting.
Plantar fasciitis is more common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support have an increased risk of plantar fasciitis.
Symptoms: Plantar fasciitis typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel. The pain is usually the worst with the first few steps after awakening, although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or rising from sitting. The pain is usually worse after exercise, not during it.

General advice to consumers on the use of herbal remedies from the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

From the website of the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency ( Department of Health, UK

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.


Pregnant/Breast-feeding mothers

Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.

Volatile Oils

Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.


A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.

Breast-feeding mothers

A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.

Paediatric Use

Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.

Perioperative use

The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
