Recently a friend was experiencing a great deal of stress while caring for others. She told me she’d developed a persistent headache, and the pain was in the same spot where she hit her head a couple of months earlier. More specifically, she described the pain as “aching in the bone.”
There’s a particular homeopathic remedy for that same type of pain, whether the aching in the bones occurs after fractures, during the flu, or for any other reason. Though it’s unlikely my friend sustained an actual skull fracture from her earlier fall, her body was experiencing the pain as if she had.
After taking one dose of the remedy eupatorium perfoliatum, her pain was reduced by 75% within a couple of hours, and after a few more doses was completely resolved over the next two days.
Eupatorium is also known in herbal medicine by the name “comfrey” or “boneset,” and it’s common for homeopaths to first use eupatorium for an initial fracture with its aching pain, as well as for the fractured bone ends to come back into alignment.
A second homeopathic remedy that can be used for fractures is known as symphytum officinale, also known as comfrey or “knitbone” in herbal medicine. If a fracture has come into alignment, and aching pain is not the primary symptom, then Symphytum can be used to help with building “callus” at the fracture site, “knitting” the bone ends back together.
Symphytum is commonly found in homeopathic remedy displays, and both symphytum and eupatorium are available for purchase online.
The above is one quick example of the range of possible acute conditions that can be helped by homeopathic remedies. Remedies for first aid and acute illness are also the easiest to learn for home use.
In contrast, for chronic conditions that are not resolving on their own, you can talk with a professional homeopath to discuss whether your problems can be resolved with remedies. In fact, most conditions can be helped with homeopathy, and it is more often a question of whether the person is a fit rather than the condition itself. If holistic care makes intuitive sense to you, and you have further questions about the homeopathic process, please call the Ommani Center and ask to talk with me at 262-695-5311.
