Looking Beyond Arnica For Trauma...
Is Arnica Your Default Remedy For Trauma?
We had an interesting discussion in one of my Argentum Mentoring Sessions a month back.
One of my members had a query on managing a case of Trauma.
Her friend's teenager son had fallen off a cliff. He suffered multiple fractures, but remained in a stable condition in the hospital.
She wanted ideas on what could be done homoeopathically to best help the boy.
What followed were some wonderful inputs from members on the Arnica protocol. However for me the main criteria was to look beyond the use of Arnica as a default medicine of choice in every injury and trauma. While sharing some key injury groups the main focus was knowing when not to prescribe Arnica and what to do instead.
Personally I have always hesitated giving Arnica before ruling out other indicated remedies in trauma.
I still believe Arnica is one of the most overprescribed remedy in homoeopathy today and more often than not it is prescribed when nothing actually needs to be given.
Looking Beyond Arnica, Aconite and Calendula....
Hence this time I want to present a case of Severe Concussion after a Car Accident. I used the Boger's Approach at Stage 2. This is the perfect approach when you have common pathological symptoms but you can still find the genius of the remedy at Stage 3 and 4 in a few minutes.
In the process I discovered an extremely useful but rarely used group of remedies. For me many remedies in this group could well be used as a near specific for cases of concussion.
I promise it will offer you a fresh insight for your next case of trauma and inspire you to look beyond Arnica, Aconite and Calendula….
