Never Well Since…….., Homeopathy Heals

Recently, I spoke to a woman who has been constantly tired. She said that this all started after she had a very bad fall. She hasn’t been well since, she said.

Many times, people may not be well after they have had some kind of physical trauma or emotional loss or upset. Specifically, physical traumas are anything that has happened to the body, or changes to the body, such as: a surgery, a fall, a high fever, a course(s) of antibiotics, an infection,  a pregnancy, a miscarriage, the flu, vaccinations, puberty, and menopause.  An emotional trauma could be a loss of a loved one, a big disappointment, a divorce, a geographical move, a loss of a job, mistreatment, a war experience, and sexual abuse.  There may be other types of traumas that I have not mentioned.

Never well since means that the person has not been well since that particular trauma occurred. The person may have dealt with the trauma, and that was no longer an issue or concern, but they may have developed a particular physical, emotional or mental symptom or a health condition after this.  Now this is their main concern, and they are not feeling well.

Some of these health concerns could be: prolonged headaches, digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, women’s issues, men’s issues, difficulty breathing, skin eruptions, eczema, hair loss, chronic fatigue, insomnia or other sleep disturbances, nightmares, phobias, fears, post traumatic syndrome, just not feeling well, and more.

don't feel well

The person may have seen doctors or other health professionals for help, such as the woman who called me, yet they are still not feeling well. This is a good time to come to homeopathy.

Homeopathy looks at the whole person, knowing that all the parts of the person are interconnected. This includes the prolonged response to the trauma that the person is experiencing – the never well since. Through the understanding of what the person is experiencing in their health concern, the homeopathic practitioner (homeopath) selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to their suffering.  The main principle of homeopathy is the Law or Similars or Like Cures Like. Each person is unique in how they experience their symptoms and health concerns. The given homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and the person starts to feel better.

Homeopathy is gentle in its healing and there are no side effects. It heals at the root of what is bothering the person. The person then is feeling better, and the never been well since is also healed.

Arnica Montana – a Homeopathic Remedy for Trauma

The homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana is often people’s first introduction to homeopathy.  Many mothers use it for their children. Athletes may use it. And I have heard that cosmetic surgeons and dentists often recommend Arnica Montana after there has been a surgical procedure. (You may want to look at my post on recovery after a Caesarian section.)

Arnica Montana is a wonderful homeopathic remedy for any kind of trauma situation that occurs to the body.  Traumas can be falls, surgeries, accidents, and blows. There is a feeling of soreness and bruising. Often the person may say, “I am fine”. There can be swelling and puffiness. The formation of ecchymosis may occur – black and blue areas. Ecchymosis is a bruise, contusion or a dark area on the skin, made by blood which has escaped into the tissues after a blow.  This is really the body’s way of healing itself when there has been trauma. Arnica Montana helps in the reduction of these symptoms, and eases the feeling of soreness, pain and bruising.

The homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana is made from the Arnica Montana plant that grows on mountains in high altitude areas.  The two small vials shown here are what you may find in the store.

Here are a couple of examples when Arnica Montana was used:

  • A patient of mine used it after having a procedure to remove a skin growth on her nose.  The area was sore, slightly puffy and the checks started to get a yellowish tinge to them. She was using Tylenol to help with the pain. But after starting to use Arnica Montana, she noticed that the soreness was less, the swelling and puffiness was going down, and the yellowish area was fading.
  • Another patient used Arnica Montana after having teeth fillings replaced. She was feeling a deep soreness in her teeth, gums and jaw as the result of having experienced a lot of drilling. Arnica Montana relieved the pain completely. She used the remedy several times a day for several days and/or when needed.

Often people use this remedy in a self help and first aid situation. It is always good though, to see a practitioner of homeopathy if there are serious or longer lasting symptoms  that you are experiencing.
