Homeopathic First Aid

Yesterday at SOMA day during my talk i was asked some great questions and i shall be posting my answers to some of those over the next few days.
This one first “do you use Homeopathic remedies for first aid and what would be in my kit?”
Yes i have a travel kit i use and some of the top remedies i have in it are-
Arnica for bruising and over tired muscles a must for mums with toddlers and sports people. Its also good for shock where the person insists they are OK (think the monty python black night sketch ‘its just a flesh wound’)
Belladonna for fevers where the patient is hot/red/dilated pupils and especially when they start looking or acting confused or fearful. A great alternative for parents to try before reaching for the calpol.
Apis for insect bites where they skin goes inflamed, red and puffy. Handy to take on holiday.
Rhus Tox for sprains or stains (even arthritic pains) which ‘limber up’ as you get moving. Walkers/joggers take note of this.
Ruta for sprains and strains which get worse for use and movement. good for the outward bound types.
Aconite good for shock where the patient feels fearful and a good one to try at the very start of a cold where there is sudden onset sore throat.
The above are all best used in a 200c potency and can be repeated frequently up to 5-6 doses (if they haven’t done the trick after that they are unlikely to)
Hope that’s of help folk 🙂
