Here, I will be discussing a few homeopathic remedies that can be useful to reunite and quickly heal fractured bones and maintain the bones strong and healthy.
Broken bones take longer time to heal. Along with immobilization and rest, it needs proper medications and other treatment. Sometimes, even after proper operative or non-operative treatment, bones take longer time to heal, and physical symptoms persist, which keeps the patient very uncomfortable. In such cases, homeopathic remedies can be useful.
Below I have mentioned some commonly used homeopathic remedies to reduce the physical symptoms and heal the fractured bones. Depending on the symptoms, these remedies are generally given to the patients.
1. Arnica - Arnica is the most commonly used medications, and is the first choice for any injury, even though it is not a fracture. Arnica helps to relieve pain and swelling after any injuries or wound. Remember that Arnica only helps to reduce swelling and to some extent pain (pain can be reduced only if the broken bones are aligned together). Arnica 30c can be given 3 to 4 times a day.
2. Calcarea Phosphorica - If the reunion and healing of bones take longer time or the bones are not healed as expected, then Calcarea phosphorica is a remedy. Depending on the severity, Calcarea phos 30c can be taken once a day for a week then 200c once a day for another week. Even Calcarea Phos 6X3 tablets twice a day for a month would fasten the healing process.
3. Symphytum - Symphytum is a remedy for bone and cartilages. This remedy facilitates the union of broken bones, promotes the callus formation, and acts well in reducing the pricking pain caused due to injury. This remedy can be given after Arnica 30c to reduce further pain. It also acts well in old fractured bones where the pain persists even in completely healed bones. Symphytum 30c can be taken once a day for 1 week then 200c once a day for next week.
4. Hypericum - This remedy is useful when the facture has occured in the nerve-rich areas of our body like toes, fingers, or spine. Hypericum will help to reduce the tingling or sharp pain caused by nerve injury.
5. Bryonia - Bryonia is another useful remedy that can be given when the pain persists on slightest movement after treating the fractured bone. Usually, such patients are irritable and prefer to stay alone.
The remedies mentioned above are the most commonly used ones to reunite and heal fractured parts and reduce other physical symptoms like pain and swelling.
