All Creatures Great and Small Benefit from Homeopathic First Aid

These fellows flew into large windows at a house in Quebec. Fortunately, their fate was not the tragedy that so many songbirds suffer daily due to glass windows and buildings without shades or UV decals.

This young nuthatch hit a second story window on a chilly day. When we found him on the ground, he was on his back and cold. I thought recovery unlikely, but tried nonetheless. While I warmed him up, my friend dissolved Arnica 30X tablets in a small glass of pure water. His beak was open, so I put a drop near his tiny tongue. Within a couple of minutes, he righted himself. As he seemed terrified as well as stunned, she added an Aconite 30X tablet to the Arnica solution. Four more doses and a half hour later, he was off to a tree where he sat for another hour, tweeted, fluffed his feathers and flew off. So sweet.

SparrowWhite Throated Sparrow
On a windy but warmer day a year later, we heard this white throated sparrow hit the living room window. He was on his back being pecked and pulled by his mate when we found him. He came to quickly after a drop of Arnica 30X in water. He found his feet and then sat and sat looking fairly comfortable. Every time he looked like he would fly, he cuddled back into my hand to avoid the strong winds. We did not think it necessary to add the Aconite, but continued to dose with the Arnica every 5-10 minutes. Within an hour of his accident, he tweeted goodbye, perched nearby for a few minutes and soon met up with his mate in the brush.

"Homeopathy is so safe, simple and natural, that nothing should hold us back from helping fellows like these, plus our own friends and family members if they are willing. Please note: Self care measures of any kind should never make us delay or avoid needed professional medical attention after accidents. This is particularly true of all head injuries.  I would have added Rescue Remedy to both of these cases, but was worried about the alcohol content for such tiny bodies.  Needless to say, my friend now has WindowAlert’s UV decals on both these windows.
