I have seen Arnica pink up a man’s ashen face when coming out of surgery.
This series of Arnica homeopathic remedies has turned an old man whining from the pain of a broken wrist to not feeling the pain and going ahead with a task before taking care of the broken bone.
This use of Arnica brought long-term mental focus to a woman who just fell down and felt just like before when she had a concussion.
It relieved the aches and pains of a day’s overwork.
I saw it give the feeling like nothing happened the day after a fall, where she could hardly move and worried about bruised or broken ribs.
How to take the remedies
If conscious, let the pellets dissolve under the tongue.
If the injury is recent, take the ascending potencies in order, one dose every 20 to 30 minutes. This means, take Arnica 5ch first, then wait and observe what happens. Proceed to Arnica 7ch 20 to 30 minutes later, depending on response. Continue up the scale for all 6 potencies.
The follow-up Arnica 200K take just once to 3 times a day.
Always respond to symptoms in taking this remedy – when there are no symptoms, stop taking the remedy. When aching, for example, comes back, take another dose. When there is no aching, no remedy is needed. In many cases, like after surgery, Arnica can effectively be used for controlling or lessening pain.
If semi-conscious or unconscious, in conjunction with emergency help, dissolve the pellet in a little water and rub on the wrist or other accessible thin skin area. Pets may have the water with the remedy dissolve in it rubbed into the ear flap.
Hint: to avoid fumbling with the vials in an emergency, put 7 pellets each in little coin envelopes, mark them as to remedy and potency, and clip them together and carry them with you in a purse or backpack. Then you simply tear open the envelope and pop the pellets under your tongue to dissolve them and get the benefit immediately.
If you want to treat an injury any later than the day it happened, take the remedies more spread out in time. They even may be taken twice a day over 3 days. But the best response is to treat immediately – often the injury is reversed immediately or by the next day.
