Ruta graveolens (rue)
Arnica of the Joints, or The After Arnica Remedy for joints, bone bruises, sprains and strains, or any injury involving cartilage, tendons, and bone surfaces. For bruising, Ruta can work better than Arnica to speed healing of bruises to bone surfaces.
Most of Ruta’s fame in homeopathy comes from its ability to relieve, strengthen, and stabilize joints after sprains – even joints weakened by repeated injuries. This includes weak ankles, carpal tunnel wrist pain, sore backs, eyestrain, tennis elbow, trick knee or shoulder pains. Its back applications range from simple strain or bruising to a weak bruised feeling in lower back and cases of sciatic pain and lumbago.
When the tendons behind eyes tire from reading or staring at the next 400 entries on google, Ruta can clear the dim vision quickly, minimize the strain and stop the sharp headaches that often follow eyestrain.
Ruta’s backache and joint pain may feel better for gentle movement, but not so much as with Rhus tox’s sore joints. In general Ruta’s pains improve with warmth and worsen with cold, dampness and wind.
Ruta’s mental picture is not a prominent part of its applications, but is recorded as “dissatisfied with himself and others...suspicious, fretful” (Murphy’s Lotus Materia Medica) while others include anger, anxiety and resentment.
In short, Ruta is a must in the kit of every athlete, dancer, typist, waitress, computer viewers, etc. An extra bonus to athletes: You will never fail a drug test for using homeopathy. 100% safe, non habit forming, without side effects or contraindications with other meds.
