Homeopathic remedies for surgical wound healing. When to use Arnica before surgery and Staphysagria 200 for pain.
Over the years, I have treated many people that have benefited from homeopathic care after surgical procedures.
A lot of people nowadays are under the impression that homeopathy is a kind of psychological healing approach given the later homeopathic trends therefore, not many people realise that homeopathy is just as effective in treating acute conditions or emergency acutes such as post surgery complaints.
We have wonderful remedies to cover most acute complications and it works very nicely along conventional medicines.
Below are some of the most usual remedies prescribed after surgical procedures but the list is incomplete.
FEAR BEFORE THE OPERATION
Aconite 200 : 3 times per day for a couple of days before or Aconite 200 am/pm the day before the operation and as per needed
It can be taken if fear persists after the operation.
Arsenicum Album 30c: for those that are feeling very restless and need to be pacing up and down before the day. One dose every 2-3 hours.
I do not like to prescribe Arnica before the operation unless it is cardiovascular or brain surgery.
However, Arnica is wonderful in these cases to avoid post-surgical complications like thrombosis or infarction. In this case, give a single dose of Arnica 200 or 1M before the operation.
After any other operation, if there is not much bleeding, a few doses or Arnica 30 or 200 will help with the trauma and avoid infection.
Most remedies can be taken 3-4 times per day if the symptoms are not too distressing otherwise, it can be taken every hour or so until relief is found.
For pain relief, of course the remedies repetition can be as often as needed at the rhythm of the pain. This would be different from wound healing where we would be expecting a much longer process and accordingly, the remedies would need to be prescribed less often and over a longer period.
However, for pain or discomfort, if after 6 repeated doses absolutely nothing happens, then a new remedy must be found.
