Montana son creates "Medicine Springs Mineral Therapy" to help his mother with arthritis
"Medicine Springs Mineral Therapy" was spawned from a necessity.
Brandon Price's mother Brenda had painful arthritis and could not close her hands. On a vacation, Brenda was sitting in a geothermal mineral hot spring and noticed she could close her hands and the pain was gone.
It wasn't a cure, but provided welcome relief.
Excited about how these natural mineral springs provided relief, she mentioned on her return that she wished she could put that water in her hot tub and bathtub.
As a former high school science teacher in Brandon thought this was something he could do. Based in Helena, Montana, Brandon and his wife, Julie, took chemical analysis of the most healing natural springs to be found around in the world, removed the water, separated the compounds, isolated the reactions, and packaged it.
They believe this is an opportunity to help others the way this helped Brandon's mom. They didn't intend to sell originally, but after giving it away—at Race for the Cure and to several Wounded Warriors—and seeing the results, they knew they needed others to try it.
Mineral packs by Medicine Springs are formulated to help alleviate symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia, joint and muscle pain, various skin ailments (like eczema, psoriasis, and acne), or those who are athletic—really anyone who wants to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of a hot soak or bath.
The minerals in the hot springs they selected came from around the world, including Alaska, Canada, Costa Rica, Iceland, Japan, Montana, Peru, and Wyoming.
These mineral packs mimic the chemical makeup of some of the world's most famous 'healing springs' found around the world, including Bicarbonates, Boron, Calcium, Lithium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, and Sulfur.
