Cuts, Grazes & Puncture Wounds

FirstStop the bleeding:  Ideas here.

Next: clean it.
Oregano oil in water in a spray bottle is painless, antiseptic and great for this job.
Be sure to use nothing than has lint [cotton wool for example] to clean the wound. You don’t want the wound to keep erupting to chuck out lint or gravel.  Be sure it is good and clean.

Anti-tetanus homeopathy style: If it is a puncture wound that’s gone quite deep, ensure it bleeds a bit [aerate the wound] and give Ledum 30c 3 times over the day.

Ledum palustra for puncture wounds or deep, dirty cuts.

Pain killing & wound cleaning, homeopathy style:  hypericum 30c in a medical solution.  Give a few sips every 5 mins until the pain is better [no more than 5 doses though].  If the pain eases at all, stop giving doses.  If the pain starts up again … start the max 5 doses again.

Healing, homeopathy style: give calendula 200c morning and night for one day.  If you see any redness around the wound or it starts to look infected, gets warm etc, repeat the 2 doses of calendula 200c.

Calendula for healing and settling a hot, infected wound.

Keep it dry & clean.  Try not to keep it under a plaster. Let the air get to it.  Get stitches if you need stitches of course.

It’s good to have these first aid remedies made up as medical solutions.  You are gonna need them often enough!  How to make a Medical Solution.

recovery after surgery

Recovery After Surgery

Scheduled surgery can be unavoidable, even for people with additional health problems and risk factors, like my 3 year old patient Ida, now in recovery after surgery for a double hernia.
Advancements in surgery mean that more can be done with key hole techniques and the strain on small children and frail adults is reduced in a wonderful way. However, Ida has a shunt that empties close to where keyhole surgery would have to be done, so she didn’t have this option.

As a homeopath I’m asked by patients and their families to help with recovery after surgery.    If you’d like support with recovery after surgery, contact me on 07544812470 in the UK.  Support can be offered worldwide via skype.   Meanwhile, read Ida’s story below:

Yesterday, I was on call for Ida, after she came out of surgery and over night.
She has additional challenges:

  • She was born with an encephalocele (part of her brain formed outside of her skull.)
  • She has hydrocephalus (water accumulates in her brain).
  • She has a shunt to drain fluid from her brain, which has to be carefully monitored for blockage and/or infection.
  • She suffers with epilepsy, which can sometimes be severe.
  • She has a tendency to seizures when her temperature rises.

She is joyous each time we skype consult and I’ve witnessed her learning to walk and talk, and even learning to pronounce my name “Sally!” (Not a small fete!) … whilst treating her for whooping cough and fevers, worms and her general health problems.
She is a mini miracle & is hitting mile stones her parents were warned she'd likely never hit. She… Click To Tweet
Read on to find out how we helped her recovery after surgery.

 

Homeopathy for Ida’s recovery after surgery

The Recovery After Surgery Kit:

The following are useful points to remember:

  • Before surgery
  1. Arnica shouldn’t be used before surgery.  It clears bruising because it thins the blood.  During surgery it is best to not have thinned blood.
  2. I recommended aconite or rescue remedy for Ida’s family, to help with nerves and fear about the surgery.  (If the patient is fearful both are useful too).
  3. We ensured they had a Recovery After Surgery kit.  (Listed below).
  • After surgery
  1. Arnica can be used to clear bruising faster after surgery … but don’t overdo it.  Use 30c to 200c over the next few days 3 times max during the day.
  2. Mag phos is a good pain killer after surgery.  Ida had repeat doses in water in a 200c potency once her epidural wore off.  Be sure you have your homeopath available for close communication and on call for night time queries if you are using homeopathy for pain after surgery.
  3. In their kit her parents also had hypericum: good for pain, particularly in damage to nerve rich areas … and very important for speeding up healing.
  4. Staphysagria: is for pain after surgery and can be useful for immediate pain relief, but should particularly be kept in mind if the incision scars continue to hurt after healing and if the patient feels invaded by the procedure.
  5. Calendula: is great insurance against infection and indispensable in healing hot, red inflammation after surgery.  I saw it work miracles in a patient’s knee-replacement recently!  Her swollen knee halved in size and the redness and heat were gone over night.
  6. Opium: this is a remedy we have in the kit to deal with the after effects of anaesthesia if there are any.  We’ve not had to use it for Ida so far but will have it in reserve.

Today she is home.  She has had a dose of calpol this morning, but otherwise her pain relief has been managed with mag phos.  She’s just had a dose of both hypericum and calendula 200c today (spaced 1 hour apart) as insurance against infection and to speed healing.

I saw a picture of her grinning out of a kiddy car in her garden today.  Pretty impressive recovery!

Be aware that Lyme Disease does occur in the UK, where it is less often recognised. I have personal experience with Lyme Disease with my eldest daughter in the USA.  She became seriously ill (within a month) with neurological problems and Lyme related arthritis.  She underwent 70 days of antibiotics with their own consequences.

My second daughter was bitten by a tiny deer tick in Lyme Park, Cheshire, UK and produced the characteristic ‘bull’s eye’ mark (which confirms that the bacterial infection Borreliosis is present).  However, I knew the signs and gave her a single dose of Ledum 200c. The bull’s eye subsided and she had no further development of borreliosis symptoms (to date about 7 years). I saw a locum doctor who looked up the disease and offered to monitor her. My own doctor at the time strongly believed that Lyme Disease doesn’t exist in the UK.

Homeopaths consider Ledum as insurance against infections from bites, stings and puncture wounds of all types, once you have been bitten
But if signs of infection develop please consult your homeopathic practitioner and / or doctor.
