Coma vigil: Does Arnica Asap help ?

Hello

I'm a guy from Germany and my girl friend is in waking coma since approx 2 years.
I read about this "Arnica Asap" in here. Is it any good for helping my girl comming to consciousness ?

Greetings

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hello Gabriel,
It depends on WHY she is in this condition - ARNICA (asap = as soon as possible) is used after accidents or falls.
You can moist her lips with wet remedy (in water).
If arnica doesn't help there are many other remedies.

you and her parents could benefit from a single dose of IGNATIA 30c

just to make sure- moistening lips is not the same as having her drink--people in coma should NOT take anything by mouth, no matter how small!

Thank You "Astra" for Your reply!

To be precise my girl friend isn't in "coma"! She's in a "coma vigil (cv)(waking coma)". As far as I know the "Logophedist"(right?) is working with her, but she's not swollowing by herself.
Please excuse if my grammar fails sometimes!

She is in cv because a lung embolism caught her. No accident, no fall. She had to be reanimated by the emergency physician.

Greetings Gabriel

I was interested in the case of your girl friend whom you state is in a coma for 2 years. You state in your last post that she is in a coma vigil which you term "waking coma" because she had a lung embolism and had to be re-animated.

It would be of interest to know exactly what her present status is and what steps have been taken to reduce the embolism.

I have successfully used Arnica 1M in the water dose and a 21 year old boy who was in a coma for 2 months has benefited from its use and is slowly on the road to recovery.

In your case, I believe that she may benefit from Arnica 30c in the water dose which can perhaps help to dissipate the embolism but you will have to provide more details to enable me to be of help.

Then again as Astra advises, how do you give her a regular dose twice daily if she cannot swallow ? How is she being fed ? If through a nasal tube the remedy can be dropped into it.

I await details of her diagnosis.

Thanks for Your interrest and Your answer!

Cit.: "It would be of interest to know exactly what her present status is and what steps have been taken to reduce the embolism.
"
What do U need to know exactly?

To reduce embolism she's receiving blood thinning physics (Marcumar).
I can tell U her 1st ReHa in Osnabrück (a city in north) failed in 2004. Her 2nd started in 06.2005 in a REHA-Center in Magdeburg (M) (East-Germany) and still continues.
(In the meantime she was quartered in an old people's home.)
Often she looks very awake as awaking any second! The physicians target in M is to verticalize her body.

Cit.: "I have successfully used Arnica 1M in the water dose and a 21 year old boy who was in a coma for 2 months has benefited from its use and is slowly on the road to recovery."
Yes I know since I read Your answers in "severe brain injury". Thats the reason I'm posting here and informating myself about arnica.

As far as I know she shouldn't swollow at present status, just moisting her mouth.
She's being fed by tube into her stomach.
 
Gabriel last decade
Gabriel,

I believe that Arnica 1M in the water dose can help her.

However this potency cannot help to thin her blood like the lower potency 6c or 30c can do. The problem is that it is usually the higher potency that takes over in the event of both the high and low being used at the same time. I am therefore in a dilemma to advise you as to which is more important.

Since I feel that her embolism needs attention immediately I would advise you to use the 30c in the water dose 1 teaspoonful taken 3 times daily. This can be administered through the feeding tube in her stomach.

Please report her condition in a week.

I wish her well and may God Bless and Heal her.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
sorry, but I still don't know what U need to know to judge her present status!
As I wrote she's already getting blood thinning physics (Marcumar).
U now surgest
cit.:"that Arnica 1M in the water dose can help her".
Do U mean in addition to Marcumar? Or do U mean for helping her coming to awareness? Sorry I'm not sure about this!

Cit.:"Please report her condition in a week".

I would if I could, but that's not possible at the moment. Seh's in Magdeburg, me in Düsseldorf (near Cologne) and to her mother I should talk, too. Sorry! It takes time to follow Your advice.
 
Gabriel last decade
It is important that she continues with the blood thinning drugs prescribed by her physicians.

You can give her the Arnica 30c (in the water dose) in addition to the drugs as it will help her embolism.

She can be given the Arnica 1M later after some improvement is noticed with her embolism.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
hello again

my girl friend has now been transportated back from Magdeburg to Nordwalde (near Münster). She's still continueing with the blood thinning drugs prescribed by her physicians.

Giving her the Arnica 30c (in the water dose) in addition to the drugs will help her embolism? And what could I do about the waking coma? I believe the most importent thing is getting she to awareness first! Isnt't it?
What can I do helping her?
 
Gabriel last decade
something forgotten!

My next visit to her I'll talk with her mother about giving Arnica (asap). I hope I can convince her.
 
Gabriel last decade
Please note the following:

The Arnica 30c is for the physical problem -- the embolism.

The Arnica 1M is for the mental level -- her coma.

It is said that the higher potency eclipses the lower potency but this is largely theoretical and I do not have any evidence to prove this.

In a case such as yours you may give her both remedies as either or both can help her in her present state.

The dosage is as follows:

Arnica 30c 1 teaspoonful 3 times daily

Arnica 1M 1 teaspoonful once daily
 
Joe De Livera last decade
Joes suggestion will be very helpful to your girlfriend and I hope you are able to get her to respond in some way.
My only concern is that a high potency will overstimulate the vital force, as the energy of her vital force is low at present. In a case like this arnica 30c will be sufficient for all levels of healing - it is important to work with the vital force and what this force is trying to do. At present it is not trying to do any quick, vigorous, or high energy healing and we must all wait and patiently let it heal herself at her own pace.
I suggest also one dose of opium 30c.this will help her to recover from the clinical and emotional shock.another dose may be given in due course.
For all remedies I believe that rubbing it onto the skin (in liquid form) will be sufficient, she does not need to take it. the best area to rub it in is on the thymus area.
alternatively, as astra suggested, wet the lips with the remedy and this will also be sufficient.

To Joe:
OK! I've got it! Both can help her in her present state. The dosage has been decribed. I'll talk about with her mother "asap"!

To Erika:
Thanks for Your opinion! Your concern that a high potency will overstimulate the vital force, I've noticed.

Cit.: "...and we must all wait and patiently let it heal herself at her own pace."

This expression is striking. I've to think about it and tell her mother, too. Your additional surgestion we will discuss, too. Good idea rubbing it in is on the thymus area!

Thanks to all!
Please give me some time convincing her mother trying this remedy!
I will be back!

Hello, my dad 67 years is in coma.He had a cardiac arrest post cervical surgery, suffered hypoxia.He has sleep-wake cycles,opens his eyes,blinks,moves his neck a little, has a tracho but no respirator.would arnica help him? if not what will?
 
vanav last decade
To Vanav

You can use Arnica 30c in the wet dose for your dad, 1 teaspoonful taken 3 times daily.

The Arnica will help his circulation and also dissolve any clots that result from his surgery.

The wet dose is made by inserting 3 pellets of Arnica 30c into a 500ml bottle of spring water and this is shaken hard before a teaspoonful is given when he is awake.

Please report response in a few days.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
Thank you so much.arnica 30c available in the market is in liquid form How much should I use it with 500ml water?I used one drop, is that okay? Someone suggested arnica 1M too.Shall we give that to my dada too? And, how should I prepare that?

dear all,
is it possible that anyone can help with brian hemorrhage,
my friend had a brian hemorrage ten years ago, after which he was in a coma for two months.

ten years on, he is on medication to stop him having a fit for which he also smokes cannabis to lessen depressive moody irritable emotions from the side effects of the orthodox medication he is taking,

which he says does help a bit.
but he wishes to stop taking because he said he became violent to his son, so he wishes to stop taking the medication from his doctor.


he drags his left foot as a result of the car accident. so shoe gets worn down quickly

the hemorrhage is on the right- side of the brain.

he has to check everything with his left side-for example bath water otherwise when he gets into the bath he may scold himself because he can't feel with the right side.

every six months he gets the sensation that his hair is being pulled for three days then the sensation disappears and days later he is better able to do things--he has not had no hair loss

he seems polite and in a hurry and i feel is a the point where he wants change therefore making him anxious slighty


can any one shed any light

all the best
nina
