In the meantime, here are some quick tips for how to use Arnica with suggestions of potency, repetition and types of injuries.

Using Arnica is for many people, their first introduction to homeopathy. They fall, injure themselves, sprain an ankle, break an arm or suffer pain from dental work and the pharmacist recommends Arnica for the swelling and inflammation. Improvement is often so quick that it is common to hear or to say, “I guess I didn’t injure myself as badly as I thought I had” or “I guess the dentist wasn’t as rough this time.”

Homeopathically, Arnica is employed in any situation where there is debility and exhaustion following overwork, recovery from injuries, illness and emotional trauma where the feeling is one of being sore, bruised with an aversion to and fear of touch. A person needing Arnica will typically say “That’s OK. I’m alright. Don’t’ touch me. I’m fine. Just leave me alone.”

Arnica 6CH helps to relieve the shock of injury. It is the first remedy when back pain results from overexertion, an injury or blow where the area feels bruised and may be swollen. It is also good after difficult childbirth or other damaging physical activities. Take 4 times per day for up to 2 days.

Arnica 30 helps to relieve the shock of injury. This remedy is used as soon as possible after an injury, such as a broken bone. It helps reduce pain and inflammation while calming the injured person. Take every 15-30 minutes for 1-2 hours and then 3 times per day for 2 days.

Arnica 30 should be given as soon as possible after a burn to relieve shock, pain and discomfort. Take every 15-30 minutes up to 6 doses during the first day. Arnica ointments and gels are helpful topical remedies for painful injuries to soft tissue and muscles. It can be used along with internal doses of Arnica. Do not apply however, to open wounds as it can prevent proper closing of the wounds. Calendula cream would be better for open cuts.

Potency (6CH or 12CH or 30 CH etc) and dosage can vary from one product to another and from one situation to another. It may be necessary to consult with a homeopath if you are concerned about the potency or frequency of repetition or duration (how long to give a remedy).

As with all emergency situations, it is important to seek medical help. Concussions, broken limbs, heavy bleeding, and shock require medical attention.

Hope to see you on the course! I love the learning and sharing this information so that homeopathy gets spread far and wide!

Yours in health and healing,
