NEW RESEARCH IS GREAT NEWS FOR FAMILY FRACTURES & BROKEN BONES!

NEW RESEARCH IS GREAT NEWS FOR FAMILY FRACTURES & BROKEN BONES!

March 17

Injury, trauma and lengthy trips to A&E are an unfortunate but integral part of family life! I can almost hear the resigned disappointment coupled with anxiety that follows the news that a child, or family member, has injured themselves sufficiently to warrant the journey, and often, the wait.

Bumps, bruises, cuts and grazes are common place, and recovery can be simple and speedy, with the use of Arnica or Calendula respectively.

Fractures and breaks are more challenging and can be a little more complex to treat (green, hairline, compound etc). That’s the bad news! The good news is that there is now good quality research and strong evidence to support the fact that “fractures set better and healed faster with homeopathy”. Between 2009 and 2012, a “double blind” RCT (randomized controlled trial), which is the blueprint for scientific research, found that in patients with broken ankles, the group treated with homeopathic remedies experienced faster healing and significant improvement in the quality of healing and alignment of the fracture union, than the group given a placebo or sugar pill.

The homeopathic group of patients also experienced less pain and used less painkillers. The added benefit of the homeopathic remedies is that they are entirely natural, safe and without side effects. When correctly prescribed they purely stimulate the immune response, activate and accelerate the bodies’ in-built healing ability.

Fracture remedies are not an uncommon request from my own patients, but one prescription stands out in my memory. An experienced horseman and jockey, who had just started his new job at the Royal Stables in Sandringham was tending to a horse, also new to the stables, when the horse reared and landed with full force on his foot. His heel was literally crushed to pieces! To cut a long story short, following an operation to insert a mesh structure to support and shape the heel, I prescribed Arnica followed by Symphytum, both leading fracture remedies. Within a number of weeks our jockey was walking, working and as far as I know is still working with the Queen and tending her horses.
Although homeopathic remedies including Arnica, Calcarea Phosphoricum and Symphytum, amongst others, are a proven effective option for fracture treatment and recovery, it is still important to consult with your GP and/or A&E to confirm the diagnosis and extent of any damage. It is also very important to ensure that any significant fracture is fully aligned before homeopathic support is given.
