  • Arnica then Ruta grav: a netball injury

    A teenage girl twists her ankle one evening at netball. The injury is very painful. Her coach provides standard first aid treatment. Arnica 200C is given, one dose half hourly for 4 doses, significantly reducing the pain and swelling.

    The next day some pain returns and she takes another dose. Her doctor's diagnosis is a damaged ankle ligament. Ruta 200C is given hourly for 3 doses. By the end of the day, the pain is gone and swelling reduced to the local area.

    The doctor warns this injury takes a long time to heal. As some swelling continues and weakness persists during use, Ruta is continued twice daily for a week, and then once daily for another week. Two weeks later, she takes one more dose when her ankle feels weak during some exercise.

    She is back to netball much sooner than expected.

    Arnica: a bleeding nose

    A woman is struck on the nose when opening a fridge door. Blood pours from both nostrils. Arnica 200C is given, every minute for 3 doses, after which the bleeding eases. Another dose is given after 5 minutes and the bleeding stops. 30 minutes later she takes another dose, because of increasing pain, and follows this with two more doses at hourly intervals, after which the pain has gone. No swelling or bruising of the nose develops.

    Arnica: a fallen cyclist

    A cyclist falls off his bike trying to mount a footpath in wet conditions, leading to a number of cuts and grazes to the hands, feet and knees. He feels faint and nauseous when he tries to stand up, and has to lie down in case he vomits. Alongside standard first aid procedures, Arnica 200C is given, and after 2 doses, 5 minutes apart, he sits up and is able to walk around. Wounds are washed and dressed. Two further doses of Arnica 200C are given that day and this helps the wounds to start healing well.

    Hypericum: an injured ice-skater

    A teenage boy falls on his bottom while ice-skating. The base of his spine feels very painful. A visit to his GP and a subsequent x-ray confirms that he has a bruised coccyx (tailbone), but no fracture. Hypericum 200C is given, half hourly for 3 doses. His pain lessens, although not completely. The next day, 2 further doses are given and his pain becomes minimal. Top-up single doses are suggested if the pain returns over the next few weeks, but only one further dose is necessary.

    Arnica and Hypericum: after-effects of a tooth extraction

    A woman is seen by her local dentist, and has a wisdom tooth extracted. She has some bleeding at the extraction site. Her dentist recommends analgesics for the pain and inserts cotton wool pads to absorb blood loss. On returning home, she takes Arnica 200C, 2 doses half hourly. The bleeding slows and then stops, and she removes the cotton pads. Two hours later she has some pain as the anaesthetic begins to wear off. She repeats a dose of Arnica 200C, and the pain stops. An hour later she feels discomfort at the injection site. She takes 2 doses of Hypericum 200C, half an hour apart, and is then fine. She requires no analgesics and the area has only minimal tenderness briefly in the following days.

    Arnica, Rhus tox then Ruta: a wrist sprain.

    A lady falls from a step ladder after she misses her footing. She puts her hand out to break the fall, and injures her wrist. A visit to her GP and an x-ray shows no fractures, but there is pain and soft tissue swelling consistent with a sprained wrist. One dose of Arnica 200C is taken, and this relieves her pain.

    Two hours later, she takes Rhus tox 200C, hourly for 2 doses. The next morning, the area feels very sore and aches strongly. She feels the Rhus tox did not help her, so Ruta grav 200C is taken, with 3 doses spread out over the day. The following day she feels better although not completely pain free. The area is still weak and vulnerable when used. Ruta grav. 200C is taken once every second day for 2 weeks, because of the time it can take for recovery to occur. She stops the remedy after 10 days because the symptoms have cleared up and she does not feel any lingering weakness. However, after a bout of spring cleaning 6 weeks later, the wrist loses some of its strength, in exactly the same area. She takes more Ruta grav 200C, once daily for 2 days and is then fine.

    A man strains a muscle in his back reaching to pull a box from a high shelf. He complains of stiffness and pain, worse when he starts to move after rest, and less as he keeps moving.

Another dose is given 48 hours later because he again feels some stiffness on getting out of bed, but he makes a made a speedy recovery. He also sees an osteopath for advice.

    Rhus tox: a bushwalker's stiff and sore muscles

    A man is on a week-long bushwalk with friends. After some arduous climbing in wet weather, he sleeps the second night in damp clothing, and with a sleeping bag that is wet in places. The next morning he feels sore, bruised and stiff, particularly in the shoulders and hips. Each time he starts to move after resting, his symptoms are worse.

    The man takes a dose of Rhus tox 200C after breakfast, and again at each restbreak until the group stops for the night (4 doses over 8 hours). The next morning his symptoms are much better, but the following day they return slightly. He takes 2 further doses, morning and evening of that day, and completes the rest of the walk with ease.

    Continuing the Tasmanian Homeopathic Tradition

    Homeopathic Law

    There are 2 main laws of homeopathic practice. The first is the Law of Similars. This states that a substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person, can treat those same symptoms in a sick person (when prepared as a homeopathic medicine).

    The second law deals with what we call the minimum dose. The least number of doses required to bring about healing is used, no more, no less.
