Arnica and Nux

Homeopathy AND Allopathy

My husband has been a passionate and long time golfer. I am not joking when I say he can remember every course (and no doubt every hole) that he has played over the last 45 years, in many different countries. But that coupled with shoveling snow from the drive and a lifetime of physical activity, took its toll and, in the last few years golf has not been possible due to osteoarthritis and rheumatism. For a while it was possible to manage the pain (with Tissue salts and remedies) but as flexibility lessened and pain increased further action was required. Surgery! 

December 2021: He underwent a total right shoulder arthroplasty, biomet comprehensive nano implants with augmented glenoid component and biceps tenodesis. (Ie a total shoulder replacement). A day surgery! Once the incision had been made the surgeon discovered the inflammatory and erosive pattern was worse than they expected.

After 9 hours in the hospital he was released to my homeopathic care and with 6 painkillers of varying strength and time for dosing. Oh, and a stool softener for the side effects of such.

So what could I do! As you know it is against our regulations to treat our spouses and really it is a good idea to seek the help of another practitioner because sometimes it is difficult to be the Unprejudiced Observer. At least to get started.

The first thing we did was to give a dry dose of Arnica 200c 24 hours before the op. Then in water every 10 mins for the first 3 days. I have to laugh because I had misread the advice which was to give 30c and timing was as frequent as possible! Ultimately - the patient responded well and there was minimal swelling with very pretty bruising that was not uncomfortable. Within 3 days my husband was only on 1 pain killer! I do believe he didn’t take the whole gamut of painkillers at all. The Anesthetist on the follow up call was amazed when my husband told him the pain was at a 1 or 2 out of 10. Meh - maybe a 0.5!

As for the constipation  - a couple of doses of Nux vomica cleared that up. No stool softener required.

Now the incision itself: As I couldn’t get to the site for the first 3 days, we started on a water dose of calendula 30c as frequently as memory would allow. The stitches came out 10 days post op, easily and painlessly and the nurse commented on how well he had healed.

Movement is next. I have Ruta lined up but this is not yet indicated. 

He is now back at work - within 2 weeks after being told it could take a month!

I think he has enjoyed the endless cups of tea and extra attention this nurse has supplied him with 🙂 Not to mention the experimental vegan baking and nutritional meals!

Jude is a graduate of CCHM (2014) and has been in practice ever since
