If this remedy were in every glove compartment, first aid box, purse, office, suitcase, gym bag, dugout... , countless hours of pain and aggravation could be saved. This premier first aid remedy has won many hearts to homeopathy by minimizing bruising, bleeding, swelling, shock, pain and recovery time following strains, injuries, dental work, surgery, childbirth, exercise... Even without bruising or obvious signs of injury after trauma, Arnica relieves the aftershock, soreness and pain that often follows. A dose after every head injury is very highly recommended, but please call your practitioner even if it feels better.
Whenever backs are lifting and joints are twisting, Arnica can minimize the swelling, bruising and pain. Arnica helps minimize the trauma of most injuries including sprains and muscle strains. On the skin, Arnica can help bruises, minimize bleeding of cuts plus ease tender sore spots like sores or acne. For aches and muscles, a dose before and after a workout can minimize the next day’s stiffness and help muscles heal. It can also bring much comfort when a strong cough has your ribcage feeling sore, or a flu has your muscles aching.
Though we all need Arnica, a few mental clues underline its importance in certain applications. In cases of shock, physical or mental, Arnica is most important for patients who say, “No, I’m fine, don’t touch me, I don’t need a doctor,” even when it is obvious they need help. Another indicator is when the whole body feels oversensitive, sore/bruised and does not want to be touched. Arnica can also help when injury or shock leads to nightmares and worry. The other key contender for shock, Aconite, is critical when shock brings on intense fear, anxiety and cries for help.
In short, Arnica is so important in minimizing trauma, especially in soft tissues, it needs to be available 24-7. We cannot underestimate its importance for everyone, pets included, and are pleased that it is finding its way into everyday care around the world.

“Arnica should be considered first in all cases of physical injury.”
and “Arnica works quickly to repair damaged blood vessels, to reduce swelling at the site of the injury, and to eliminate pain…."
–Dr. Lyle Morgan, in his book, Homeopathic Treatment of Sports Injuries
In his book, Musculoskeletal Healing, homeopath Asa Hershoff states:
“Arnica is the most renowned trauma remedy, and is without equal as the primary remedy for injury of any kind whatsoever.”…
For past injuries, he states:
“Homeopathy is the first choice when a person has ‘never been well’ since a specific traumatic incidence. Arnica and Hypericum are the main remedies, prescribed in high potency for several doses, for erasing the imprints of trauma within the nervous system and tissues.”
