Broken Bone Support (Homeopathy)

Remedy Options

Primary Remedies

Arnica montana

This remedy can be used during the first days following the break to decrease pain from swelling and trauma.

Eupatorium perfoliatum

This remedy is well-known for its use in flu and fever when the bones are extremely painful ( “as if broken”) and is useful to relieve the deep or aching pain of actual broken bones.

Hypericum

This remedy is very useful for crushing injuries to body areas that are well-supplied with nerves. If smashed fingertips or toes are severe enough to traumatize the bones, Hypericum can be a welcome form of pain relief.

Ruta graveolens

This remedy is known for its effect on bone-bruises and on injuries to the periosteum (the covering of the bones); both of these types of trauma are involved when a fracture of a bone occurs. Ruta is also indicated when the pain around a fracture is extreme, and the person feels lame or weak. This remedy is also helpful in many cases when pain persists after treatment with Arnica.

Symphytum officinale

This accelerates the formation of callus and relieves the pain from the bone trauma.

Other Remedies

Bryonia

This remedy may help to bring relief if excruciating pain results from even the slightest motion. The person usually wants to remain completely still and not be touched or interfered with.

Calcarea phosphorica

Calcarea phosphorica helps in the consolidation of bone fractures, once they have been correctly set.

Dosage

Homeopathy Dosage Directions

Select the medicine that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

Many homeopathic physicians suggest that medicines be used as follows: Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the medicine work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient. If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different medicine.
