Homeopathic Medicine Arnica – Its use in Treating Injuries

Homeopathic Medicine Arnica

Homeopathic Medicine Arnica

Arnica Montana, commonly known as Arnica is a well known homeopathic medicine used mainly for its great efficacy in treating nearly all kinds of injuries. One can judge the efficacy of Arnica in healing injured tissues from the fact that many general surgeons as well as plastic surgeons around the world have started to use this homeopathic medicine to promote healing and minimising the post operative infections. An Eye Surgeon that I know , gives a dose of Arnica to the patient after he operates him .According to him the eye heals up much faster and also its use eliminates the chances of a post operative infection in the eye. In the field of sports medicine it is being used extensively to treat injured athletes. It has a special role in treating severe head injuries and conditions that result out of an injury to the brain and spinal cord.

Arnica as a Homeopathic Medicine

In homoeopathy Arnica is used mainly for treating injuries. The best part of arnica is that it is very effective in treating injuries ranging from mild falls and contusions to severe traumas like head and spine injuries.Arnica is indicated for use in following mild to moderate injuries- Injuries from bumps, falls and other accidents, sudden forceful contact with a blunt instrument resulting in bruising and swelling to skin and muscles; bleeding and inflammation deep in the muscle fibers. Arnica is a prime medicine for sprains and strains. It is of great help in reducing pain in fractures and also in pains of old fractures.

Arnica’s Role in Treating Head Injuries

The role of arnica in treating serious injuries like head injuries and spinal injuries requires a special recommendation here. It can minimize the post injury effects and can be a great boon for those who go into coma after the injury. Its special role in helping the patient to come out of coma after the injury is what puts Arnica in the special category of treating head injuries.

Also conditions that arise after a head injury whether recent or remote. For Example epilepsy after an injury to the head; loss of memory; speech problems after an injury etc are effectively cured with Arnica.

Arnica Role in Absorption Of Blood In Internal Injuries

Another condition where arnica does great wonders is in re-absorption of blood. Whether it is brain hemorrhage or bleed in the retina, Arnica accelerates the absorption of clot.

Arnica (Arnica Montana) is an Alpine herb native to the mountains of Siberia and central Europe .It works by improving blood flow to the areas of tissue damage, thereby assisting in the healing processes. It also has antibiotic properties too.

Arnica can be used at home for minor falls and injuries and usually in injuries where upper surface of the skin is not broken, but please remember that in injuries where bleeding has taken place, Arnica should only be used only when the bleeding has stopped either by suturing or the wound has gone thru the stage of initial clot formation. 30 C potency of Arnica can be used to treat minor falls and injuries at home. For injuries of severe nature, professional help must be sought.

    Dear Dr. Sharma,

    I go every 6 months for my glaucoma check up. On the 8th of this month I started feeling blurring of vision in my right eye. The eye specialist found that I have ‘supero temporal branch retinal vein occlusion and macular edema’ in my right eye. The eye specialist advised ‘intravitreal injection Accentrix’ which I do not want to take. I have high blood pressure and primary open angle glaucoma both of which are under control with allopathic medication. I do not have blood sugar. I am male aged 62. Kindly advise homeopathic medicine for this retinal condition. Shall be highly obliged and grateful to receive your valued advice.

    Best Regards,

    Gopi Mundkur

  16. Clare Talha says:

    Dear Dr Sharma, Im very happy that ive come across your website. Ive been using homeopathy for many years, not as a Professional but for my family and friends and have recently been reading a book on “Aetiologies” and decided to look for more information due to the fact that my 5 year old son hit his head many many times as a toddler, he would fall over trying to run or even just walking, banging into doors etc, but he would always just hurt his head, he seemed to have permanent “eggs” on his head and bruises. I would always put arnica gel immediately after but i only gave him a dose of arnica 30c on a couple of occasions. He has various symptoms which never really seem to go away despite giving indicated remedies and im now wondering if he actually needs a higher dose or Arnica due to the fact that he suffered so many head injuries as a toddler. I wonder if some of the symptoms he has now will perhaps clear up if i treat the “aetiology? Would there be any harm to be done? Id be very greatful for a little advice from you please Doctor, many thanks, Clare Talha

  17. hello Sir,

    I am sufering from Balanitis, having a sudden pain when arises. I am tacking Homeopathy treatment and my doctor giving me dose of Arnica on alternate days for last 4 days, preferred 3 dose. symptoms are likely swelling on corono and light continuous burning pain (its kind of feeling or irritation on penis forhead skin) for last 14 days. still i m not satisfied with the treatment. just for last 2 dyas i am avoiding to take food having sugar, oil, spices, preservative food and beverage food also & will continue till complete recovery.

    I came to decision that prblem is due to yeast might be, as my wife has been suffering from Lupus and before couple of days she had vaginal infection. right now she is completely out of danger from Lupus flares as she is taking treatment uder supervision of rheumatologist.

    is homepathy treatment help me to cure balanitis? please give me reply.
