First Aid

In my regular day-to-day experience, most people are totally unaware that Homeopathy can be helpful in acute situations .

 

Earache, diarrhoea and vomiting, sunburn, gallstone or kidney stone colic, tooth abscess, sprains and strains, coughs, colds and 'flu ... the list goes on and on.

 

PERHAPS YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH A PROBLEM, JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE, OR IT HAS NEVER CROSSED YOUR MIND TO ASK!

 

IF IN DOUBT, GIVE ME A CALL

 

I find that there are many homeopathic First Aid remedies that can be used safely in the home. There are many useful self-help books.

 

For example, Arnica has an excellent track record for helping bumps, bruises, trauma and shock. It has proved useful year after year in my practice following a dental extraction.  

 

Tooth abscesses (if you seek help quickly) will often respond to remedies without recourse to antibiotics. My own dentist is very impressed that I have been able to keep a tooth healthy following an abscess (without antibiotics!)  and remarks on it at every 6-monthly check-up. He wanted to take it out!

 

Sprains and strains can also be helped by Ruta Grav or Rhus Tox, depending upon symptoms.

 

Again, I badly injured a calf muscle in the Autumn of 2010 and using Ruta Grav for the sprain, it repaired much more quickly than my physiotherapist expected.

 

FIRST AID IN MY PRACTICE

I am happy for my clients to call me for advice during an acute episode, and I try to ensure that parents with young children have a First Aid Kit at home for late-night problems ... Saves me a drive half-way across Cornwall.

 

I ‘train’ the parents to act as my eyes and ears,  and they are clearly instructed to always seek emergency help from their GP or A & E if they are unable to get in touch with me and things are getting out of control.

I will, of course make a home-visit if necessary.

 

 

Throughout my entire career, which began in 1984, this careful and responsible approach has worked flawlessly.
