mom had stroke, blood thinner? Page 2 of 1

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi Maheeru,

Can you elaborate in any way on the other deep acting remedies
To compliment the Arnica and the dosing?

What do you think about taking Arnica in the wet dose everyday?
Joe told everyone, even teens to take it everyday.

Hi Simone

Stroke usually follows some kind of bleeding in brain. This sounds like physical complaint sort of injury like atleast when looked from the surface without involving pathalogical details. That's why Arnica helps with Strokes this much. But arnica is not a deep acting remedy or what we would call an 'anti psoric' from Hahnemann's parlance which would go deep and address the issue from it's root. For example Baryta carb, Phosphorus, Lachesis would greatly improve paralytic symptoms that follow stroke where arnica's role may be limited. Nux vom can help with slurry speech . But apart from specifics, symptoms is the window through which a homeopath can look into what's happening inside a patient's system. So indicated remedy given at appropriate time intervals will always strengthen the constitution and would improve the quality of life aggregately prolonging life.

A small digression. This is something i have arrived at after studying some cases of strokes(excluding sun strokes). Generally people who have good love lives(including physical intimacy) tend to get strokes less and less. Those who lose life partners early or who have not had life partners at all show a certain vulnerability towards strokes. This is totally a non-homeopathic tip to prevent strokes and those who can, can take heed of this. By this i'm reminded of a tweet by George Vithoulkas. According to him, couples who lost their selves completely into each other in love during their intimate moments tend to give birth to healthy babies and those couples who were not that lost in love tend to give birth to defective children including developmental delays and autistic spectrum disorders.

Now back to the topic, even palliative remedies should cover the symptoms reasonably well ---some great homeopaths would say the best palliative would be the best similar remedy not the most similar one or not just addressing one or two symptoms--the point of palliation becomes more and more important with age and with the seriousness of illnesses. This holds good for most chronic and terminal conditions including stroke.

Considering the palliative aspect-- arnica wet dose forever may be helpful to some people and it's less likely to produce side effects compared to daily dry dosage as found in banerjee protocols. I know of one person who from his late 40s was on frequent dry arnica dosage to keep himself alive because of his terminal heart pathalogy but after a point he started to get side effects. For such people arnica 30c in wet dose instead of 200c in dry dose would be helpful.

Leaving out these exigencies, it's not a good idea to take any medicine daily for ever without any exit strategy because we'd never know what would happen with such strategies in long run-- a couple of people who were taking arnica 30c in wet dose without a break for more than a decade had some interesting complaints like --they were becoming less intelligent with reduced understanding and comprehending abilities, having rigid ideas and becoming intolerant to others views which when pointed out to them --they were not able to see the possible connection and get it. In my view it'd be a definite no no for teens and patients who still have the potential to get cured.
