Joe, how does arnica 30c wet dose help acne scarring?

I remember in reading your arnica 30c wet dose that it will improve or fade? acne scarring. what exactly does it do? is it similar to silica?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I wanted to know the same thing. I wish more people would follow up once they recommend something and make it a bit clearer.

I cannot really explain how the Arnica 30c in the wet dose helps to arrest acne and also helps with slowly reducing the scarring. I have observed this phenomenon and as is my custom, I record it on this and other forums to enable others to also remember it for use when they are consulted by anyone.

I am aware that it Arnica is not usually used for Acne and the scarring but this is not a reason for not using it merely because it is not listed in the MM's, many which were recorded over a century ago.

It is possible that that Arnica acts by promoting the flow of blood in the capillaries under the skin and this helps to prevent infection of the hair follicles on the skin of the face away, which is how the acne starts.

I have proof of my theory as I have used Arnica 30 for Eczema with outstanding success when drugs, usually steroids, ayurvedic drugs and other Homeopathic remedies have failed. I have used Arnica to prevent recurrent bouts of Cellulitis which affected many patients, some diabetics who suffered from this ailment about every 6 months which required hospitalization and treatment with powerful antibiotics which left them more dead than alive after discharge. One patient who had been in hospital on 4 previous occasions who is also a diabetic is now completely cured from this major problem which was affecting her for years, has not revisited hospital for the last 18 months as she is on a nightly dose of Arnica 30 which she also depends on for her sleep as she was a chronic insomniac.

My simple message to all who read this post is to use Arnica 6c or 30c every night in the Wet Dose to experience the benefits that it will make in their lives whether or not they suffer from Acne.

The method to be followed is as follows:
Get a 500ml bottle of spring water
Pour out 100ml
Put in 3 globules Arnica or 1 drop if you have the liquid remedy.
Hit the bottle hard on your palm or a cushion and watch for the water to fizzle like when you open a bottls of soda.
Sip a teaspoonful as recommended above.

No coffee and cola drinks as they antidote the remedy.

Can it be doen with a a stronger potency?
new2town last decade
How well does it really help acne scars? You said it takes a few months and they will fill in?
curious123 last decade
To New2town: No only the 30c may be used for some time.

To Curious: Arnica prevents the formation of new lesions and theyby permits the damaged skin to heal. This will however take some months.
Joe De Livera last decade
Joe, can you drink no coffee/caffeine at all or can you drink it in the morning and use the arnica at night?
Jennifer123 last decade
by preventing new lesions, how does that heal tough scar tissue?
Puredelight last decade
To: Jennifer

Coffee will antidote the Arnica.

To Puredelight

Depends on how tough the scar tissue is. You can also use Silica 30 to help fill up the scars taken once daily.
Joe De Livera last decade
wow, I started quite the discussion here. I feel special now:) I guess Joe doesnt really know what it does for scar tissue. But as long as he has honestly recorded it working I will try it and see. Im kinda bummed that the silica is not working totally still. I know its very slow acting but Ive been on it since the beginning of april I think.
hotty198 last decade
If you have used Silica since April and it has not worked so far, you should stop it and change over to Graphites 30 instead.

You will also benefit from the Arnica 30 taken just before you sleep at night.

Report response in a few weeks.
Joe De Livera last decade
ok thanks.
hotty198 last decade
Does tea antidote the arnica?
For example I drink decaf green tea. Will other herbs antidote it?
kunsang last decade
Actually Arnica is indicated for Acne in the MMs - see Boericke - 'Acne indurata, characterized by symmetry in distribution.'

Still,well done to Joe for bringing this remedy to the fore for a condition for which it is not primarily associated..

I would stress to anyone stuggling with skin conditions to really investigate their diet, as more and more i am convinced that acne, excema etc are systemic inflammatory response to food allergy and intolerance when permeability of gut is impaired and immune response results. For some this may be pain, bloating etc, ...for others skin response - hives, dermatitis, acne.
Watch the following: cow's milk/lactose/casein, soya, wheat/gluten, sugars, yeasts, additives/preservatives, sulphates, nitrates.. Also history of antibiotic use and sugar addictions.

You may like to know that I have discovered that using Arnica 6c in the wet dose directly on the lesions can help to cure them even quicker than just using the wet dose internally.

The lesions disappear as if by magic within 48 hours when Arnica is used internally and externally.
Joe De Livera last decade
What are the directions for applying Arnica 6c or 30c directly onto the skin?
Bryndar last decade
Never apply Arnica directly on skin. It is likely to cause irritation and blisters, particularly if the skin has cracks.

gavinimurthy last decade
The remedy for Acne is Arnica 30c in the wet dose.

This is made by inserting 3 pellets or 2 drops of the liquid remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water which you can get from a supermarket. You shake the bottle hard to ensure bubbling every time you sip a teaspoonful which is a dose twice daily.

If you wish to apply directly on the skin for better results, you will use another bottle from which you will soak a wad of cotton wool which you will dab on your skin. You will ensure that you pour out the water on the cotton to prevent reverse flow which will contaminate the remedy.

Report response in a week.

Dear Gaving

Arnica is added to hundreds of ointments sold in homeopahty stores.

Arnica is added to countess cosmatics sold in USA and all over the world.

DO NOT COOK YOUR OWN THINGS. If you don't know about any thing keep quite and learn.
kuldeep last decade
You apply arnica on cracked skin and see the result yourself.

Creams are different.They have more of the base material, than the medicines.

Start reading the labels.

gavinimurthy last decade
The wet dose of Arnica 30c, suggested is as good as applying water on the acne.It won't have any effect.

Never try to suppress eruptions with external applications.

gavinimurthy last decade
Dear Murthy

The above is another your your fallacies which I feel I must debunk.

The fact is that I have positive evidence that a chronic case of Acne is better helped by Arnica taken in the wet dose taken internally and by direct application to the lesions.

There is no question about this FACT.

If you do not know please DO NOT spread your usual warnings of doom and gloom as you confuse the patient.

I recommend that you use it in the manner that I have prescribed and see the results of what you call Joepathy for yourself.
Joe De Livera last decade
To Joe:
I just want to specify that I CAN apply the wet dose directly onto my skin and I won't breakout into a rash or blisters? Murthy did confuse me. Thank you for your response. Also, are the pellets solid or in gel capsule form?
Bryndar last decade
To Bryndar,

This is to confirm again that Arnica 30c in the wet dose may be applied quite safely directly on the pimples for a better and quicker cure.

I am not surprised that you the patient is confused by this hyper classical homeopath who seems to be more a theorist and has no hands on experience in the treatment of his patients.

I am indeed very surprised that he still continues to pester me and others on this forum in the hope that we will be overawed by his pompous pontifications which are now the laughing stock of others who read this forum.

I cannot answer the question about the pellets of gel capsule as it just depends on what you have purchased. It is usually sold in pellets or as a liquid remedy and you know the number of pellets or drops that you have to use in a bottle of water.

Please ensure that you do not contaminate the remedy in the bottle by holding the wad of cotton directly against the mouth of the bottle. I advise my patients to use 2 separate bottles for the remedy taken internally and the remedy used to wet the cotton wool just in case it gets contaminated.
Joe De Livera last decade
Dear Brydar

Read the thread

'theory of suppression'.

and also

'article on pseudo homeopathy'

My intention is not to scare you, but, to make you better informed, as I want you to take a decision after knowing the pros and cons.

gavinimurthy last decade
To Brydar

I am simply amazed at the tenacity of Murthy who first confused you and even now continues to do so merely because he wishes to have the last word. It is unfortunate that his last word is always to criticize even more the advice that I have given you which naturally confuses you the patient, which seems such a shame and requires some action on the part of the moderator of this forum which does not seem to be forthcoming.

It is only too obvious that Murthr is being attacked by other members of this forum who have been helping patients for the past few years in comparison to his own pathetic efforts in the recent past which did not seem to go down with the members, especially the new members who have by now, discovered that he is just a windy old gas bag, who although he professes to be the ultimate classical homeopath has yet to show his prowess by condescending to help someone in distress with his hyper classical version of homeopathic remedies. He prefers to sit on the side lines and continues to insult the prescribers and to confuse patients like you who wish to be helped by a remedy for your ailment.

Those of us who still are present on this forum have to weather on a daily basis, his insults as also the insults of a female member who feels that she is cute in her analysis of homeopathic matters. She often feels that she can interject the skills that she has gathered in her hair dressing career into homeopathy and so obviously fails miserably in doing so. She does however provide tactical support to Murthy as she seems to shadow his posts and swoons on his pontifications which give her some vicarious delight whenever he makes a pest of himself on the forum, insulting me and other members who are present here purely to help those who seek assistance.

It is strange that the moderator of this forum has permitted this form of licentiousness as it detracts from the avowed purpose of this forum which is to help to alleviate human suffering with our own individual use of homeopathic remedies which as you can see from the many posts that I personally have made which have now reached almost the 5000 mark over a period of over 4 years have been focussed on helping the afflicted. The large majority of patients whom I have helped with the remedies that I have pioneered have confirmed that my therapy has helped them and the surprise is when Murthy continues to attack me and the patients for following my prescriptions which is fully aware have helped them to recover. I find this behaviour very strange and as a member reported may be due to some alcoholic haze which clouds his reasoning.

You are advised to ignore Murthy's ravings as I am unable to stop them myself except by warning members that he is proving to be a pest whose advice is best ignored.
