Feeling Injured – And Another Class On First Aid And Homeopathy

I am happy to be offering another class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid situations, such as with falls, burns, insect bites and sprains on July 13th at Lifelong Yoga.  In this post and in the class, I am going to talk a bit about injuries that may have occurred in the past, how they can affect one’s health, and how homeopathy can be helpful in their healing.

The information for the class is below. (If you are not local to the San Diego area, and are interested in a class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid, we could schedule on online/virtual class.  Contact me if you are interested. )

First Aid

When we have a first aid situation we look for relief and help in the healing.  We may go to our physician, our chiropractor, our acupuncturist, our homeopath, our massage therapist or other healing practitioners we see.  We get the help we need at the time of the injury/trauma.

Yesterday, a long time patient of mine, called because she was having severe pain in her broken heartright buttocks area. She had been doing a lot of physical work, cleaning out her house, and recently a close friend of hers had passed away. This loss brought back feelings of grief and sadness that she had after losing her mother and her husband years ago. She had seen her acupuncturist, and now was calling her homeopath.  She was experiencing physical symptoms, thinking that she had over done things, and there was an emotional component, the loss.  Homeopathy was addressing both of these – the physical and the emotional.

Another Patient

Sometimes, there may be lingering effects from the trauma we experienced, even though we may have gotten help at that time. Or, we may have not known that there was a trauma when something happened.

For example, a patient of mine had pain in her abdominal area. It wasn’t menstrual pains or cramping, although it did occur right before her period. She had it checked out by her physician, had some tests done, such as a colonoscopy, and nothing was found to be the cause of what she was experiencing.

When she came to see me, and was telling me about her situation,  she mentioned that she had had two cesarean sections, and that there had been a lot of scar tissue developed from both of the  c- sections. This was a trauma, and could be thought of as a first aid situation, at the time. The given homeopathic remedy (Bellis perennis) helped her tremendously with the pains she experienced – the pains became less and eventually not at all. This was an example of an injury, a first aid situation that had happened, and the lingering effects from it.

Learning About The Patient

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on at the time when these symptoms started. This could be an event or situation in their life, a trauma of some kind, such as a fall, surgery, an emotional loss, or a job loss, for example.  globuli-3163133_960_720Whatever it is, can often be the start or the onset to what is bothering the person, and which brought them in for homeopathy. And in a way, this trauma is a first aid situation at the time, and from it a more chronic type of condition has developed.

The following types of traumas and injuries may also be considered in the category of first aid. Homeopathy can be helpful to them, if it is something that happened recently, months, or even years ago.

  • emotional trauma – loss of a loved one, a job, a home, war experience
  • surgeries, procedures and dental work
  • falls, concussions, head injuries, car accidents, sports injuries
  • giving birth and the delivery – not well since for the mother, and the behaviors of the baby
  • food poisoning
  • exposure to toxins
  • drug and vaccine reactions

More About Arnica Montana – A Personal Story

Arnica Montana is often the first homeopathic remedy that someone uses, introducing them to homeopathy.  Moms use the remedy a lot with their children. I have written about the use of Arnica Montana for first aid situations, such as traumas, falls, surgeries, and injuries in several of my blog posts. Here is one of those posts.

Each homeopathic remedy is not just for one health condition. The thinking that I have this _____________________, then I need this homeopathic remedy, is not how homeopathy works. I know we do so that with Arnica, using it when there is an injury, as I wrote above, but Arnica can be used, like other  homeopathic remedies, for not just one thing.

Homeopathic remedies have what we call a “picture”, which is a description of the remedy. As a homeopath, I am matching the picture of the person to the picture of a homeopathic remedy. This is Like Cures Like, the main principle of homeopathy – the Law of Similars.

A Personal Story

My left arm started to be very painful. I have had something like this before. I call it a “cold” in my arm.  It hurt in several different places on my arm – around the elbow, the upper arm, the shoulder, the shoulder blade and even down to the fingers. It was a sore, bruised feeling. It hurt almost all the time, and more so when I moved the arm, and even when I moved my right arm, my left arm would hurt. (We are connected.)  At night, getting into a comfortable position took time. I babied the arm, and wore clothes that were easy to put on and didn’t need help in snapping or zipping.

I gave myself the homeopathic remedy Bryonia at first. It didn’t seem to help. Then I thought, I am feeling bruised and sore. So bruised. I didn’t injure the arm, nor was there any kind of an accident. But there was this sore and bruised feeling. So I took the homeopathic remedy Arnica. I dissolved three 30C pellets of Arnica in water, and took  arnica lying downseveral doses of it (teaspoonfuls), over a period of time. A day or so later, I took Arnica 200C potency, and really felt a change after that, a bettering – less sore and bruised. The next morning, I noticed I was starting to use my arm more, still being careful with it. And the healing has continued.

When I had talked with a friend about my arm, she asked me if I had thought about getting a massage. I immediately said, “I don’t want to be touched”. At first I thought, that is not true, because I am touching my arm at times, feeling the points where it hurts, and slowly, gently pressing on them and massaging them.

I thought about what I had said, that I don’t want to be touched. It was true. I didn’t want my arm to be touched. I didn’t want anyone to touch it. And I was being so very, very careful with my arm, not letting anything touch it.

The “I don’t want to be touched” is a keynote, a main characteristic, of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana, along with the sore and bruised feelings. The person will say, I am fine, but they don’t want to be touched, because they are not fine. And this is what I was saying. It was so interesting to me that I said that.

I didn’t have an injury, but as I am writing this, I remember that I was noticing that I was having very different dreams than I usually have. In these dreams I had the feeling of being threatened and of the possibility of being hurt. I found I was escaping from a lot of situations that could be dangerous. Perhaps in some ways, I had felt injured, maybe not physically, but something may have happened in my life, maybe on an emotional level, and I was feeling injured. This was being expressed through my dreams and through the physical sensations of soreness and bruising I was experiencing.

Homeopathy To Heal

To come to the homeopathic remedy that is needed, it is ALWAYS finding out how the person is feeling, not that they have __________________. How the person is feeling can manifest in many areas. Some of these are: physical symptoms, dreams, fears, emotional states, mental functioning, and spiritual questioning. All of this information is what guides the homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that fits the person, that is similar to the person, and helps in their healing.
