Arnica Montana 30x and acne

Hello everyone. This is my first post. I've been viewing this forum for quite a while, obtaining information about homeopathic remedies.. I've gotten lots of useful info :) . I recently read a post where it is clarified that Arnica 30x is different than Arnica 30c. I have just received an order for Hyland's Arnica Montana 30x and was wondering how I would go about preparing a wet dose of the Arnica for treatment of acne. I would imagine the number of tablets to use in the 400ml of water would be different than when using Arnica 30c. Any help would be appreciated -- Thanks!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
if anyone could help, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks! :)

Considering 30c is 10 times as potent as 30x, would it be okay if one were to prepare a wet dose by taking 400ml of spring water and adding 10 times as much 30x as one would have added 30c?
Any help would be great. :)

Is there anyone who can help me with this? I'm sure some of the more knowledgeable people on this forum would be able to help me with this.

Jn Rrere,

I'm not a homeopath, but have used Arnica 30C in the wet dose for a good many months.

I do know that the potencies are made by the number of times the remedies are diluted and succcussed during preparation by the manufacturer, and that you can't use more 30X and build up to 30C. Also, the number of tablets isn't as important as with conventional prescription drugs and OTCs.

If I were you, I'd just try the 30X first, and if that doesn't help, then obtain the 30C and try that. Put 3 of the 30X pills in your 400 ml. of spring water and try it, succussing (banging on your palm) eight or ten times before each dose of 1 teaspoon.

Thank you for your advice. If the 30x in the wet dose does not suffice, I shall order some Arnica 30c and see how that goes. I'm also taking Silicea 6x and Hepar Sulph Calc. 30c (both for acne as well) and will prepare a wet dose for those too. Any recommendations as when to take those? All three twice a day, morning and night? Thanks! :)
JRrera last decade
I'm not qualified to advise anyone on dosages. I will say that I've never seen anyone recommend that 6X potencies be taken in the wet dose. They're usually taken as tabets or drops (if available in drops), usually two or more pills are recommened two or more times per day. Arnica and the Hep Sul should be fine in the wet dose.

If you haven't already, you might use the search feature on the left side of this page by inputting 'acne' and also the remedies you plan to use. You should find some earlier recommendations that might fit your situation.

Or, you might also start a new thread describing your symptoms and ask for the advice of homeopaths here without discussing what you presently plan on trying. Everyone doesn't agree with the daily Arnica or using three remedies at once (though some do agree). You should get some fresh viewpoints.

The remedy which has helped many is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily and also applied directly on the face as often as is possible.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
If this is not available the Dry dose in pellets may be use but this is not as effective as the remedy in the original Ethanol pack
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle or 5 Pellets and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

Please post your response to the Arnica therapy in a week.

you please check up whether you have symptoms of Calcarea Carb ie. sweating of palms and soles, many fears in the mind like fear of dark and various other fears, tired easily though looking strong bodily to outsiders.
you try it internally in about 200 potency because most of the cases of acne (and eruptions on the cheeks) are cured with Calc. carb. in my experience.

Dear Farishta Siddique,
It might have been better if you create a new thread under title 'ACNE Vulgaries'

JRrera is the owner of this thread. He will have his own set of queries in future which may require attention.

Please Copy the questionary set to the new thread and Nawaz will take it from there.

It is a standard practise on the forum please adhere to that.
