Aging and Pain - how to make the pain from old injuries & stiff joints a thing of the past


Our history comes with us, recording all the shocks, bruises, traumas... Homeopathy helps our bodies work through and around all the mixed messages of the past to repair, revitalize and restore itself. It may take a pro to untangle chronic pains, but you can help yourself in simple ways to ease injuries, localize pain and help the body heal itself, without any issues with other medications.

Natrum Sulph

Sodium sulphate plays a key role in wet weather symptoms - even if it’s not wet anymore. If damp weather or damp places make you or your joints feel worse, this cell salt probably has some work to do. Nerve pain, joint pain, sick headaches, sadness and indigestion can all indicate its use if old injuries or suppressed griefs are wakened by a rainy day. If living in a damp house is in the history of your pains, this one’s a natural.

Comprehensive Pain Relief with Homeopathy

While we need pain to tell our brains to stimulate certain chemical reactions and make us take care of ourselves, does it have to make us so miserable? When you find the right remedy, homeopathy can make sense of it all and stop the hurting. While self care can help minimize and localize pain, long standing neuralgias deserve a homeopath’s expertise. Either way, these combinations are a safe, simple place to start.

Pain - Tissue O

A classic example of cell salts combined to align the body’s responses. When the body sends a nerve pain signal, it turns on a series of defenses to stabilize the area and initiate healing. Initially pain works as a warning signal to prevent further harm. Then it sends what is called an “axon flare” or reflex. This makes veins dilate around the injury, causes tissues to swell, and increases sensitivity in the area. Over time the area stiffens and muscles tense to prevent further damage. As always, having everything in the proper balance maximizes efficiency and curbs the body’s tendency to over-react.

Here’s how it works:

Ferrum phos, the anti-irritation cell salt, is the most important remedy for calming redness, reducing throbbing pains, and forming healthy blood cells.

Kali phos, the nerve nutrient cell salt, helps the body heal itself, localize pain and heal the nerves. Its action includes calming the body’s mental and emotional responses as well.

Mag phos, the antispasmodic cell salt, helps muscles relax and prevents the spasms and cramps that can result from lingering pain.

Dr. Asa Hershoff’s Knee Repair Plan

‘A general regimen for the knee, which rarely fails in even the most stubborn knee problems is the following: Ruta 6x morning and night, with the tissue salts, Calc fluor 6x, Silica 6x and Calc phos 6x, taken together, three times daily (apart from the Ruta). After one month, the Ruta can be increased to the [30x] strength, twice daily. Later, Ruta 30c or 30x can be used once daily...Acute remedies for the knee reduce irritation, redness, swelling and pain, accelerating the healing of injured joint structures.’

–-from Asa Hershoff’s book: Homeopathic Remedies.

1. Ruta grav - This first aid remedy relieves and speeds healing of sprains, bone bruises and any complaint involving cartilage, tendons or bone surfaces.

2. Calc fluor - Restoring elasticity to veins, muscles, skin, bones and other tissues is calcium fluoride’s function and Calc fluor’s specialty. This cell salt aids conditions resulting from inflexible tissue or tissue that cannot bounce back from injury, pregnancy, growing, aging or illness.

3. Calc phos - At any age its support applies to structural stresses– injured bones, slow healing wounds, joint pain, back pain, weak digestion, acute simple anemia and heavy periods.

4. Silica - As many cells need its source for strength, the cell salt Silica helps restore weak tissues that lack the strength to expel or root out congestions and irritants.
