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.

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.

  6. My son had a very serious head injury in 2006 – brain trauma was extensive . resulting in hemaparesis, apraxia, aphasia and epilepsy. After many brain operations in 2006 -2007. he’s on medication for epilepsy. In Feb the neurologist changed his medication as it was causing him to have very low sodium levels and fainting fits but this change of medication was to be monitored to establish the right amount of the new medication to be used , unfortunately the COVID lock down happened . He basically had a seizure he collapsed and on top of all the brain damage he already had he also and concussion – but they would not allow him to go to the hospital. When he finally went , the CAT scan showed he had a heamatoma of about 1cm – medication was given for a month hoping it would be absorbed but it hasn’t and it has increased to 1.8cm. We can’t get an appointment with the hospital or with the neuro surgeon and I live in fear that it will expand even further –

    I’m sick and tired of giving him medication that makes him sleeping and less receptive and extreme mood swings and on top of that his GGT GOT is extremely high because due to the medication.

    Lori 17:28

    In the meantime i gave him Arnica 200ch , as a first aid remedy but until we can get to him seen and dealt with by a neurosurgeon i was trying to find a homeopathic remedy to slow down the expansion of blood seeping- the hosiptal’s medication was cortisone – this was a month ago.

    I would really appreciate a solution as we hae been fighting this situation for the past 14 years .

    kindest regards

  12. My son (6.5 years old ) had one episode of seizure , MRI MRI report shows encephalomalacia with gliosis in left perieto occipital region . Similar subtle changes in right occipital lobe. Can it be controlled with homeopathy.

  13. My daughter received a concussion in 2016 from falling off a horse. She still gets headaches, occasional nausea or dizziness and has a hard time falling asleep. She is not as outgoing as she was. She has a difficult time with strong sunlight and humidity. I am sure Nat sulph is her remedy for the after effects of her concussion but I’m not sure of the protocol of how much to give. I was thinking NatSulph 200 2x per day but perhaps that would be too strong. I could also give NatSulph 30C 2x per day for 3 months unless her symptoms clear up before that. What would you suggest?

    Hi, My dog Bubbles was accidentally dropped off the vet’s table on Aug 4th and landed on his snout.mandible and afterwards has been totally disoriented to getting around the house and yard and unable to localize to sound although he hears and understands words. HE had already lost all sight on Dec 3 of 2016 and all sense of smell on Dec 6th, 2016, when he woke up seemingly after having a seizure confused and crying, ‘All neurologists and opthomologists had diagnosed him with SARDS, giving no explanation for loss of smell . I always insisted it was a brain tumor but refused to get him the MRI because I did not want him to get anesthesia, So he had been getting acupuncture religiously since Jan 2017 and also homeopathic meds from Dr Banerji : Ruta 6 and Calc phos, But since the fall incident, they did not instruct me on what else to do now, I wonder if arnica and belladonna are good, I do not see any seizures, but I worry about hydrocephalus, He does not vonmit but only wants to eat as usual and is quite fat, There is definitely memory loss, loss of spatial orientation and inability to motor plan going up the outside stairs since the incident. He walks around in circles trying to figure out which way to go but I do not suspect that he has vertigo, Please help us and tell me the dosage for him, as he is 16 1/2lbs more or less, Thank yuou
