The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom. ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher
To be human means to experience pain. Most American adults have suffered some form of pain whether it’s brief to lasting or minor to severe, according to a National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). The survey also found that pain is one of the leading reasons Americans turn to complementary health approaches.
One complementary approach to pain is homeopathy. This therapy offers an array of medicines that can help relieve your individual symptoms of pain or discomfort without drowsiness or drug interactions. Some of the more popular single medicines include:
Arnica montana 30C relieves pain, bruising and swelling associated with trauma, surgery or overexertion.*
Dosage: Dissolve 5 pellets under the tongue 3 times a day. Decrease frequency with improvement.
Cuprum metallicum 6C relieves painful spasms and cramps occurring suddenly, such as hiccups, calf cramps and colic.*
Dosage: Dissolve 5 pellets under the tongue at bedtime and 5 pellets as needed.
Ruta graveolens 6C relieves strained ligaments and tendons.
Dosage: Dissolve 5 pellets under the tongue twice a day for 3 weeks.
Symphytum officinale 6C accelerates the formation of callus after a bone fracture has been reset and relieves the pain caused by bone trauma.*
Dosage: Dissolve 5 pellets under the tongue 3 times a day until cast is removed.
Zincum metallicum 6C relieves fidgety, restless legs, especially after drinking wine or spirits.*
