Top 3 Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Treating Head Injuries

Head injury broadly includes any injury that occurs on the scalp, skull or the brain. A head injury can vary from a mild bump on the scalp to a severe brain injury. A minor head injury may lead to confusion or a headache. On the other hand, a significant head injury may lead to memory loss, coma or death. Head injuries are broadly categorized into two types – closed head injury and open/penetrating head injury. In case of closed head injury, the skull does not break. Breaking of the skull by an object, and its entry into or on the brain is referred to as an open or penetrating head injury. Homeopathic medicine for head injury helps relieve pain and treats the associated problems following a head injury. Arnica, for example, is an excellent homeopathic first-aid remedy for head injuries.

Causes of Head Injuries

There are several causes of a head injury, which include: – accidents (on a roadside, at home, or at the workplace) – falling and hurting the head – physical assault (getting into a fight, domestic violence, childhood abuse, etc.) – sports injuries (as in skateboarding, soccer, football, hockey, etc. ) – Gunshot wounds

Types of Head Injuries

The different types of head injuries are: Intracranial Bleeding – It refers to bleeding in the skull. Lacerations to the scalp – Tearing of skin that results in an irregular wound. Subdural hematoma, epidural hematoma – Collection of blood outside the blood vessels is referred to as a hematoma. Bleeding below the dura mater (one of the three layers that cover the brain and spinal cord) is known as subdural hematoma while bleeding between dura mater and skull is known as an epidural hematoma. Concussions -Concussions arise from a blow to the head in which the brain gets shaken and hits against the wall of the skull. Cerebral contusions – Bruising of the brain tissue is known as a cerebral contusion. Skull fracture – A break in the skull bone is known as a skull fracture. It is further divided into four types – linear, depressed, diastatic and basilar skull fracture.

Symptoms of a Head Injury

The symptoms of a head injury can be felt immediately or develop slowly over a couple of hours or days. The intensity of symptoms depends upon the severity of the head injury. The signs of a minor head injury and a major head injury are different.

Symptoms: Minor Head Injury

The symptoms of a minor head injury include dizziness, feeling foggy in the brain, confusion, headache, nausea, ringing in the ears, sensitivity to light/noise, a bump or swollen area on the scalp ( a bruise) or a small superficial cut in the scalp.

  • loss of consciousness

  • behavioral changes (including irritability)

Homeopathy for Head Injury

Any head injury needs urgent medical attention. Homeopathic medicines can effectively treat acute head injuries as well as the long-term effects that develop due to an injury. However, it should be noted that in case of head injuries, conventional treatment should be taken along with homeopathic treatment. This is because the head injury can be severe and conventional medicines may be required for emergency care. Among the various homeopathic medicines for a head injury, the top ones include Arnica Montana, Natrum Sulph, and Cicuta Virosa. These are homeopathic medicines prepared from naturally occurring substances and treat head injuries in a very safe, gentle manner without any side effects.

Coma Coma is a state of an extended period of unconsciousness. The person in a coma doesn’t respond to the environment and cannot be awakened by any stimulation. Coma in head injury may arise from swelling in the brain or a brain hemorrhage. Seizures Seizures arise from abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The symptoms of seizures include uncontrollable shaking of the body, temporary confusion, unconsciousness and a staring spell. The symptoms tend to last for 30 seconds to 2 – 3 minutes. When a tendency of seizures develops, the condition is known as epilepsy.

Have lost touch with people that were very important… I forget about them until they contact me. I have spent a lot of $$ with very little help. No pics of my brain so I don’t know where the problems are. I spent $4500 at the Amen. Center to be told I have a beautiful brain but I have a concussion. Waste of money. Where can I find help? Thank you. Mary

  4. Last Thursday I dragged a very heavy container across my patio. There was no pain at the time. on Friday I developed a terrible headache with tintinnitus, Swollen veins in forehead, and was short of breath. Along with this extreme pain in lower back and neck. My blood pressure shot up to 160. I’ve had nausea, incontinence, poor appetite. Can’t get to doctor til Monday or later. Please advise.

  5. Dear Dr. Sharma, I discovered Cicuta Virosa and it’s use for brain trauma and epilepsy, which I deal with. At the time I’m staying far away from conventional medicine, staying as natural as possible.
    But in the year 2017 I had brain surgery for tonic-clonic epilepsy. The surgery was no doubt traumatic for the brain. Unfortunately because of complicated circumstances any post-surgery medication was stopped. Tragically Tonic-Clonic epileptic seizures started becoming a problem [1 to 3 monthly]. Perhaps these seizures stem from both discontinuing medication, and the delicate surgery itself being traumatic for the brain. I’d like to try the Circuta Virosa. But don’t know what a good effective dose might be.
    Glad to hear your advise, even though your maybe in India and I’m stuck in the U.S.A.
    Thank You For Your Time,
