Arnica for chronic muscle pain

My question is that, is arnica 30c wet dose effective for chronic bursitis (muscle pain and inflammation). My mom is suffering very much on her shoulders, back, and neck. I just made them the remedy today. please any replies are appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am delighted that my Crusade on this and other Homeopathic forums about Arnica is gaining hold and is being used by those who visit this forum even without my advising it directly.

You mom's chronic bursitis should respond favourably to Arnica 30c and the dose you should use is 1 teaspoonful taken after shaking the bottle 10 times to aerate it before every dose.

Please report response in a week.

Please note that she may not drink coffee and all fizzy drinks and no sausages, ham bacon as they antidote the Arnica.

Also stop all drugs she may be taking for her ailment.

Does she suffer from constipation and hyperacidity ?

mom needs a remedy for stress also which will also help with pain.

It is better not to mix remedies unless it it essential.

I noticed that I had not indicated the dosage in my last post and she may take 3 teaspoonfuls daily for the first 2 weeks and then reduce it to 2 later.

Her pain should soon respond and be history within a few weeks on Arnica.

Thank you Joe. I notified her of the dosage, and I also used some arnica gel on her shoulders to which she responded with much relief. She does have constipation and occasional hyperacidity.

Does she have to give up decaffienated coffee as well? By fizzy drinks, is beer included, how about wine? Thanks

I also wanted to clarify that the bursitis is on her leg muscle, and she has what is called 'rotator cuff tear' on her shoulder which is giving her extreme pain all over the neck and shoulder back area.
zigkaddy last decade
Arnica Gel is very useful as it is soon absorbed by the affected parts and reduces pain. I had forgotten about it as it is not easily available.

I presume that decaffeinated coffee is ?

Beer is OK but if possible can she avoid it for just 2 weeks to enable the Arnica therapy to help her ?

Hyperacidity and constipation can be helped by Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell salt tablets. Dose 2 tablets after a meal when she feels full.
Joe De Livera last decade
ok, can she take nat phos 6x along with arnica simaeltaneously? I've read that nat phos is also great for weight loss, and she is concerned because she cannot lose weight due to not being able to excercise vigorously. She also has what seems to be a slow metabolism. Thanks.
zigkaddy last decade
If she does not use Nat Phos 6x after every meal and if she is not also overweight, she will not lose any weight. It will however help by stabilizing her digestion and her constipation.

I hope she drinks plenty of water.
Joe De Livera last decade
I will make sure that she drinks plenty of water. She does want to lose weight, very much so. I was just concerned if she takes the arnica and nat phos together, they dont antidote each other.
zigkaddy last decade
I just wanted to let you know that you are a very genuine human being. I've noticed in many threads that you are sincerely concerned of people's health. You have repeatedly been patient with people, and portray such compassion. God bless you and others on this forum who offer invaluable healing.

Also, do you know where I can purchase arnica q tincture from? I am also using it for hair growth, and they do not carry it in the food store I usually go to. Thanks
zigkaddy last decade
Nata Phos and Arnica do not antidote each other.

I live in Sri Lanka on the other side of the world and cannot advise you as to where you can get Arnica Q but I believe that you can get it from the ABC store.

Thank you for the compliment which is appreciated.
Joe De Livera last decade
Ok, thanks Joe.
Another question, I wanted to give arnica wet does to my mother in law as well. She complains of body ache and not being able to function like she used to around the house. She also complains of knee pain on her right knee. Recently she had vertigo with vomiting. Then we took her to the ER, and the doctor prescribed some medecine that has helped, however after a week now, she still has dizziness upon laying in bed. She does not sleep well, and for that she took sleeping pills which really dried her mouth,and her heart feels like it's dropping. This sounds wierd in english, but in hindi, she says 'dil kat-ta hai' in case you know hindi.

your advice is greatly appreciated.
zigkaddy last decade
Arnica promotes the flow of blood throughout the body. For your mother in law's vertigo I believe that Arnica 30x in the wet dose taken twice daily can help and you can use it and report her response.

It will certainly help her insomnia and I would not recommend that she used sleeping tablets as they are habit forming and she need not get hooked on them. This is the usual manner how drugs start off a chain reaction in an otherwise healthy being.

For her knee pain Rhus Tox 30c is the remedy but I would not like you to mix the 2 remedies as I feel that the knee also can benefit form the Arnica.
Joe De Livera last decade
Great, thanks Joe.
I will get the Arnica 30x remedy for her today. I'll report back in a week.
zigkaddy last decade
Just to let others know, the arnica gel for muscle pain is amazing! I tried it along with my Mom, who has chronic muscle pain, and the pain almost immediately calms down. It is so quick that it's hard to believe.

Joe, at the food store they only have arnica oil, they do not carry the mother tincture. Can I use the oil for mixing in coconut oil for hair? Thanks.
zigkaddy last decade
I also purchased nat phos 6x for me and my mom for weight loss. I'll use it this week and report my results.
I ordered some other remedies from this website for my other symptoms, so until they arrive I am taking arnica wet dose and nat phos.
zigkaddy last decade
I hope that you got the Nat Phos Biochemic tablets. Please confirm.
This remedy is primarily used for treatment of hyperacidity which the majority of people suffer from at some time in their lives and the usualy feeling is of some burning sensation in the left side of the chest near the heart and has been diagnosed as a heart condition often. Nat Phos 6x will overcome this problem in a few minutes.

I have no experience with Arnica oil. I have always used the Q or mother tincture in a 20% solution with Coconut or Olive oil and it has worked well to improve the growth of hair.
Joe De Livera last decade
Um...on the bottle it says that it has been compounded according to the biochemic theory of Dr. Schuessler.
It also says that it's for hyperacidity and dyspepsia which may be accompanied by flatulence. In addition, it states ' a constituent of the blood, muscles, and nerve cells.
What do you think? It seems like the right one.
zigkaddy last decade
It is.
Joe De Livera last decade
Ok, thanks Joe.
I was trying to find arnica mother tincture online, and it's sold at the nutrition surplus website for $16.95 which is pretty expensive, it must be more potent that the oil.

Also I'm looking for psorinum 1M and it's sold at hahnemanns's labs website for 17.95.

I can hardly afford these, I guess I'll have to wait for a while to order them. I've already ordered cinchona off, sulfur, and merc sol...am waiting for them to arrive so I can start taking them.
zigkaddy last decade
Why don't you check with the ABC store ?

What do you want the Psorinum for ?
Joe De Livera last decade
It was recommended by Pankaj for my sense of constant coldness in my body. I did check at the ABC store and there is none in stock. Thanks for your help, I will wait to purchase it later.
zigkaddy last decade
I believe that you are being overcharged for your remedies and you can verify with the ABC store for a quoataion
Joe De Livera last decade
ok, will do so...thanks so much.
