Back Surgery - Appropriate Remedy

My friend is having back surgery in a few weeks and my thought is to give him Arnica and Hypericum, but I'm not sure of the timing and dosage. Any recommendations?

Give him arnica 200, 2 pills a day before surgery. After surgery can alternate arnica and hypericum 200 - morning and night for a week.

I would like to caution against the use of Arnica 200c in the manner suggested.

I have had major surgery 3 years ago and used Arnica 200 twice on the day before and immediately before surgery but after surgery I only used 2 globules Arnica 30c every 2 hours for 5 days.

I refused to use the morphine that was connected to the IV line and had it disconnected much against the advice of the surgeon and nursing staff who were agreeably surprised as to how quickly I recovered as I was out of bed on the third day after surgery. I was discharged on the fifth day and walked to my car. I continued the Arnica for 2 weeks at a reduced frequency and in 3 weeks I was 80% back to normal and able to travel.

You can use Arnica 30 in the water dose and this is made by inserting 3 globules or 2 drops of the remedy into 500ml bottle of spring water and each dose is a teaspoonful which is sipped every 2 hours for a week and less frequently thereafter. The bottle must be banged on the palm to create bubbles which is known as succussing and makes the remedy more potent with each dose.

I may mention here that in 2002 I was not using the water dose but only the dry globules as I converted to the water dose about a year ago as I discovered that it was far more effective than the dry.
