Homeopathy and Cell Salts for Healing Broken Bones

Bone is an active tissue, forming and remodeling constantly in response to the physical stresses and structural demands put on the body. Bones’ healing capacity can be enhanced and supported with homeopathic remedies, cell salts, nourishing foods, and healing words.

The first moments after an injury set the course for healing or create an imprint of the trauma that may have long-lasting effects. Perhaps you yourself have a wrist that’s been weak since you injured it in second grade, neck pains since a car accident, or have never been well since some traumatic event.

Injuries affect both our physical and energetic bodies.  You can heal the effects of old traumas using Matrix Reimprinting and homeopathic medicines.  For your children (and yourself), you can also stop traumas from creating a chronic affect by speaking healing words and giving the appropriate homeopathic first aid remedies immediately after injury.

First Aid for Trauma

I almost always carry a very small case of homeopathic first aid remedies. (I wrote about my must-have remedies in the article Super-Easy Homeopathic First Aid – and Why You Need It.) I have had many occasions to use it.

The first remedy to administer after an accident is arnica.

Arnica is the first remedy for bumps and bruises. Children needing arnica may be very upset, but adults often say, “No, no. I don’t need anything. I’m fine,” when they clearly are not.

Not all bumps and falls require arnica. Sometimes a bit of Verbal First Aid and an “All better!” kiss is all the child needs. Serious injuries, including all head injuries, warrant a call to your doctor or a trip to an Urgent Care Clinic. If you’re not sure what to do, call your doctor. You can give arnica and follow the suggestions presented here on your way to the clinic or hospital.

For injuries that really hurt, begin by administering arnica in 200c potency. Don’t wait! The sooner you give the remedy, the sooner healing begins.

Verbal First Aid

As you’re giving the arnica, speak words that will initiate healing. Take a moment to take a few breaths to calm yourself. Your attitude is contagious.

Mother:       Oh, you fell off the play structure. I’ve got you now. Let’s see how you’re doing.

Child:           (Crying) Both my arms really hurt!

Mother:       I can see that you’re hurt.

Child:           Ouch!!!

Mother:       We’re going to get some help for that right now. You can help me by holding on to me as we walk to the car. (Driving to hospital.) You can begin to let your body begin to heal itself. The way it always does when you get hurt. Remember when you fell off your bike last summer and had that humongous scrape?

Child:             Uh-huh.

Mother:       You can’t even see a scar because your body did such a good job of healing it. It is already starting to heal your arms too.

Other Remedies for Bone Injury

An injury that is severe enough to break a bone will also damage surrounding tissues. Here are a few other remedies that might be helpful. (I like to purchase remedies from 800homeopathy.com.)

  • Hypericum – for injury to nerves and nerve-rich tissues
  • Rhus Tox – blows, joint sprains, muscular strains
  • Ruta – injury or strain to joint, tendon, cartilage, perioseum

Immediately after the injury, arnica may be administered frequently if the pain level is high. If the injury is very severe, give arnica every ten minutes for three doses or until the pain subsides. After the most intense pain is relieved, repeat arnica at longer intervals or switch to one of the above remedies if they match your symptoms.

Once the bone is set, give the remedy Symphytum in 12 or 30x potency, three times per day for one week. Symphytum is very effective in bone healing.

Cell Salts for Bone Health

As the bones heal, the cell salts Calc Phos and Ferrum Phos will support mending. Take four tablets of each four times per day for three weeks. Then, take Silica and Calc Fluor in the same way.

As always, exercise fanatical self-responsibility in matters of  health. These suggestions should be used in addition to the care provided by your doctor.

One Day, Two Homeopathy Stories

Soon after I prepared my Homeopathy for Summer post, I was provided with two opportunities to follow my own advice.

Bumped Heads, Swollen Tongue

One beautiful summer day, I got to spend time with two friends and their families. As our visit was coming to an end, two little girls bumped heads. One girl cried for a minute, but quickly recovered from the unpleasant surprise. The other girl bit her tongue during the incident.We could see that her tongue was bleedingas she let out a few screams before settling into the comfort of her mother’s lap.

Because the tongue was already turning purple and swelling, I administered (with her mother’s permission) a high potency of arnica (1M). She was distressed and did not want us to put the remedy in her mouth. After a few minutes, she let her mother pour the pellets into her hand and nibbled them.

I share this method of administration especially for those who have heard that you can never touch homeopathic remedies because this will inactivate them. While it is standard practice to put the pellets into the cap and to tip them into the mouth, it is important to be gentle and loving in administering care. We do not want to traumatize a child (or adult) further by forcing them to put pellets in their mouth in a way that is not comfortable for them.

After about ten minutes in her mother’s embrace, the tongue appeared to be back to its original size. The girl got up and resumed playing. The teeth marks were still evident. We put a few pellets of calendula 30c in her water bottle to assist with the wound healing.

Another important component of this healing: From the first shriek until she returned to playing, the little girl was lovingly supported by her mother as she processed the pain and shock of the incident and released it.

Chair Squashes Toe

Later, my friends left for home and I went for a walk. It was a beautiful evening. I saw six hot-air balloons sailing over the lake. My children were running around happily. The temperature was cool and pleasant.

When I returned, my daughter calmly announced, Mama, I think my toe might be broken. Camp was scheduled to begin in three days.

I soon learned that her brother, who likes to rock on his chair, had landed the chair on her foot. Fortunately, she was wearing shoes and knows how to use basic homeopathic first aid remedies. She had already taken arnica and hypericum from my first aid kit. She had left her shoe on to protect the toe.

When she removed her shoe, it was very obvious which toe was injured. The fourth toe was pink and swollen to almost double the size of its neighbors. I gave her another dose of hypericum 200c. Ten minutes later, she said her toe felt better, but she’s a good sport and the swelling looked the about same to me, so I gave her a dose of arnica 10M. Twenty minutes later, the toe had returned to its normal size. I asked her to gently bend and flex her toes. She was able to do this without pain.

Just Add Verbal First Aid

When I wrote this post, I had not yet read the magnificent book Verbal First Aid.  Please read: When our children get hurt, the words we say can initiate healing or exacerbate the trauma.

Do you need your own homeopathic remedy kit? You can purchase one from 800homeopathy or Washington Homeopathic. If those kits are too bit, consider putting together your own. Here’s what’s in mine.

Homeopathic remedies are very effective and often produce amazing results. However, they do not replace professional medical care. In matters of health and healing, be fanatical about self-responsibility. Seek medical attention immediately for all serious or potentially serious injuries.

Super-Easy Homeopathy for Summer

Using homeopathic remedies, I help my children heal from most common injuries quickly and effectively. (I shared my Super-Easy Homeopathic First Aid tips in an earlier post.)

In the summer, my children go away to camp. They go without me, and my homeopathic training. Because I want my children’s bodies to be supported, as they are at home, I pack homeopathic first aid kids along with sleeping bags, insect repellent, and water bottles.

Here are some situations that are commonly encountered at camp that often resolve with homeopathic remedies:

Common Injuries

  1. bumps and bruises

  2. burns

  3. cuts

  4. stings and bites

Injuries from Hiking or Athletic Activity

  1. dehydration

  2. muscle strains and sprains

  3. blisters and aching feet

  4. exhaustion

Digestive Challenges

  1. food poisoning

  2. constipation

  3. diarrhea

Emotional Issues

Homesickness and various fears and anxiety may also be alleviated with homeopathic treatment. However, these are beyond the scope of this article. Consult a homeopath.

Prompt, appropriate treatment allows children to resume activities and enjoy the camp experience.

*Homeopathic remedies are very effective and often result in quick healing. However, remedies do not replace professional medical care. In matters of health and healing, be fanatical about self-responsibility. If injuries do not respond to the remedy very quickly and/or seem serious, seek medical attention immediately by dialing 911, going to an emergency room, or contacting your physician.

Homeopathy purists may object to this type of simplified list. They will remind us that homeopathy is about individualization and matching all of an individual’s symptoms to a whole remedy picture. They are correct. But it is possible to use homeopathic remedies in most first aid situations effectively with only basic knowledge because the acute remedy picture is usually clear.

It is my hope that if you try some of these remedies and see their elegant work, you will be inspired to seek further information about homeopathy. You may become interested in trying homeopathy for conditions that require careful, professional treatment. It is much easier to be inspired to want to try homeopathy if you have seen its healing power.

Homeopathic remedies act as catalysts to help the body heal itself.

Remedies may be purchased at most health food stores or through websites such as 800homeopathy or at most health food stores.

In all first aid situations, use common-sense and traditional first aid strategies in conjunction with homeopathic remedies. Remember too, that your loving presence is a powerful healing force. If your child is crying or shaking, allow them to release the energy this way. Support your children with loving, supportive words. “That must really hurt.” “The worst is over.” Teach children how to use words to begin healing themselves by reading Owie Cadabra.

When using homeopathic remedies for first aid, improvement of symptoms should be evident within 10 minutes. If you do not see results, repeat the remedy. If the remedy helps for a while then the pain or condition returns, give another dose of the remedy. If there is no relief after three doses, try a different remedy if it is indicated. If the injury is serious or not responding to remedies, seek medical attention.

Prevention and Health Building Tips for the Weeks Before Camp

Prevention is always the best cure. Teach your children the importance of good hygiene and drinking lots of water in the summer. Assist their bodies in reaching optimal health before camp by providing healthy foods and taking the Cell Salt combination Bioplasma, three times per day, for a week or two before camp starts.

If your child will be in an area with a lot of poison ivy, consider giving them one dose of Rhus tox, the homeopathic remedy most often indicated for poison ivy, once per day for three days before camp. I have used this technique when my children were running around in poison ivy.  None exhibited the characteristic rash.

How to Make Self-Care Work

You know your child best. If your child is able to follow instructions and the camp permits it, prepare a kit with some or all of the above remedies. Teach your child how to use them. Instruct them not to share the remedies.

If you child cannot self-administer remedies or the camp does not allow them to do so, consider sending a kit to be kept by the nurse with instructions to call you if a situation requiring attention arises.

Have a wonderful summer!
