  1. Hi. I am a 46 years old male. I play golf. I have severe pain in both my knees (knee joints and ligaments) It gets aggravated with any sudden twist or with continuous exertion. Can’t walk properly, can’t climb stairs without aggravating the pain. I think Arnica and Rhus Tox can help my case but can you please recommend which medicine is better and what dosage? Thanks

    Our 20 year old daughter blew out her ACL playing competitive soccer this week. Had an MRI and is need of surgery.
    I have her taking Arnica, Hypericum, Ruta, Rhus, Bryonia, staphysagria and symphytum.
    Question is should she take ALL that and if so does it have to be 15 min between each one and not around food or drink?
    Any insight is appreciated. Also how often each day?
    We are devastated.

    Hello, my name is Rene. My daughter is an avid volleyball player she plays for both the school and travel. Eight months out of the year she’s playing. Six actual games two additional months just practice. She is the Libero, defense specialist meaning she does the diving and digging and passing the ball so she’s hitting her knee quite often. We have tried knee braces icing it but it remains swollen and painful for her. I’ve given her Arnica I truly don’t believe I get it often enough But I do know that there are a few others that I might possibly need to give her what would your recommendation be? I’ve grown up taking and using homeopathic remedies my mother was very active with that. I know how they work and that they work so I would really like to take this route before any other. Thank you
