pls help -- arnica dosage and effectiveness for scarring

I'm inquiring about the use of arnica for curing a urethral stricture, to avoid surgery. Is it possible that it can make existing scarring disappear?

Also, it was recommended by my father in Bangladesh to take 1M. But I'm in the US and they don't have this measurement at Whole Foods -- they have 30 ck or 200 ck. What is the equivalent of 1M? Which is the best dosage? Is 200 ck weaker or stronger than 30 ck? I am new to homeopathic medicine and don't understand the dosage information. I tried searching this forum but I'm still confused.

Thank you for any help or advice that anyone can provide.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You mentioned Urethral Stricture and scarring. Can you give details as to what exactly you mean.

How old are you and do you have an enlarged prostate resulting in urine retention ?

I was interested to learn that your dad in Bangladesh had recommended Arnica for your problem and shall be interested to learn where he got this information that Arnica can be used for the treatment of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) or enlarged prostate.

Please note that Arnica 1M is not the potency and I shall give you more advice after you answer my queries.

Thank you for your reply. The urethral stricture is a scar from an old wound caused by a catheter, leading to a narrowing of the urethra. The problem is not BPH. My father said that arnica is good for wound healing and eliminating scarring.

Any information you can provide about this, including particularly about dosage, would be very welcome. What is the meaning of 1M or 200 CK? Thank you.

Scarring due to catheritization is indeed very rare and it is obvious that the person who catheterized you did not know the basics of doing so. You are advised to claim damages from him ASAP.

You can use Arnica 30c in the liquid dose 3 times daily for a week and observe your response.

I doubt however that it can help unless the damage to the Urethra is of recent origin. If it is helping you, the effect should be noticed in about 2-3 hours after the first dose when the urine flow should ease. If it does so, you may take the Arnica for some time on a regular basis and reduce your dosage when some relief is observed.

Homeopathic remedies are available in various potencies and 1M is the remedy at 100 to the power 1000. 200c is the remedy at 100 to the power 200. One potency cannot be used in place of another and the selection is best left to those who
