Surgery is an important operation that is often employed with great necessity. Thank G-d that we have this kind of technology that can save lives, as well as helpful complimentary aides such as Arnica montana homeopathic medicine.

In an extreme acute emergency, such as a shooting, freak accident, or another kind of serious injury, one must seek surgical help, when it is absolutely necessary.

Even homeopaths prefer to first allow victims or clients to undergo necessary surgical aid, before administering a homeopathic remedy to alleviate and support the patient, contrary to opposite claims.

When an acute situation is that severe, the physical symptom(s) are so emotionally and mentally impacting that those issues must be solely addressed, and of course, if surgery is needed, then it must be performed.


Not Everybody Is Immune

Even the statistics demonstrate the importance and usage of surgery in today’s healthcare. Just look at the U.S. alone:

  • 2011: 29% of almost 39 million hospital stays included at least one form of surgery. This accounted for almost half of the $387 billion in hospital costs.
  • Approximately 10 million+ Americans per year underwent surgical procedures
  • Surgical costs are the highest expenses for hospital stays and continue to rise thousands of dollars each year.


Use Surgery…With Caution

Again, surgery, when absolutely necessary, should not be delayed even for a minute.

It can at times have a harsh physical after effect on your body.

Of course, regardless of whether side effects do occur or not, one must rest and take it easy for an extended period of time before moving around and becoming active again.

Time does indeed heal all wounds.

But, wouldn’t it be nice to go through surgery and have those potentially painful side effects either lessened or avoidable in the first place?


Arnica Montana To The Rescue!

Arnica Montana Homeopathic MedicineThis is where the role of homeopathy comes into play.

The most common and prime acute remedy for treating bruising, bodily swelling, and other types of pains arising after a surgical procedure is none other than Arnica montana.

Also known as Leopard’s Bane or Mountain Daisy, homeopathic Arnica should not be confused with its original herbal form, which is actually be poisonous.


Arnica montana, when potentized into a homeopathic remedy, is in fact safe and approved by the F.D.A., like all other homeopathic medicines.

As a chronic remedy, Arnica is fitted to persons who have an emotional shock resulting from a specific strong stimulating incident in the course of their life.

They may also have ailments from physical accidents/injuries that can result in a shock. They avoid consolation for help, they will tend to say “I’m okay,” even when they really aren’t.

For more information on the type of personality and symptoms that Arnica is best for, see this short video slideshow from Dr. Todd Rowe.


How To Use Arnica Montana For Easy & Smooth Surgeries!

Using Arnica alongside abdominal surgeries or any other major and minor surgical procedures is very simple and it will not interfere with most other medications.

Like other acute remedies, I usually highly suggest to use Arnica at a 30c potency. Again, when taking a dosage of any homeopathic remedy, it is enough to take just a single pellet from the capsule.

Here is how you should use Arnica for before and after surgeries:

  1. At 3 days before surgery, take Arnica 30c just once. It can be at any point during the day
  2. At 2 days before surgery, take Arnica 30c two times, once in the morning and in the evening.
  3. On the day before the surgery, take Arnica 30c three times- 1x in the morning, and afternoon, and night.
  4. On the day of the surgery, take it 4x prior to surgery (it doesn’t matter how far apart you take it before surgery)
  5. On the 1st day after the surgery, take one dose of Arnica 30c once every hour
  6. On the 2nd day after the surgery, take it once every 2 hours.
  7. On the 3rd day after the surgery, take it once every 3 hours.
  8. On the 4th day after surgery, take it once every 4 hours, and continue giving that specific dosage until the patient is fully healed.

By taking Arnica in the prescribed method before surgery, the remedy can soothe both your body and mind in preparation for the actual procedure.

And of course, the purpose of taking Arnica afterwords is to heal any actual bodily injuries, bruising, bleeding etc., or prevent it from happening in the first place. It can enable the body to have a quick and easy healing.


Alternatives to Arnica – Just In Case

Arnica Montana Homeopathic MedicineAs mentioned earlier, Arnica is the #1 remedy for pre and post surgical procedures.

That being said, if Arnica is not effective for whatever reason, Staphysagria 30c can also be of aid. It can be used in the same method as Arnica.

Other potential remedies include Phosphorus, Acetic, Lachesis, and Anemolia.

Strontium Carbonicum can help prevent a patient from being knocked out during their post surgery period.

Homeopathic Opium is also a great remedy for those who feel sleepy, depressed and feeling down after a surgical operation.


Arnica Montana Homeopathic Medicine – At ALL Times

Given that Arnica is one of the most prime remedies for regular bone and bodily injuries such as pains, sprains, bleeding, swelling, bruising, and the like, it’s highly recommended to have Arnica 30c on you at all times.

As they say, “accidents happen.”

  • Hi Ariel,
    This was indeed a very informative article.
    I am quite a newby in the wirld if holistic and homeopathic medicine. I love the fact that only natural products are used.
    Thank you for introducing me to arnica montana. I am so happy to have learned that today.
    I am eagerly expecting to read more of your articles.


    • Thank you so much Jean! It’s truly awesome to hear that, and if you’d like to learn more about Arnica, other homeopathic remedies, and homeopathy as a whole, simply continue browsing this site or see my first article, What is Homeopathy?

      You won’t be disappointed!

  • Interesting review. I have never heard of this before. Does this work for inflammation from a sports-related injury? Or do you recommend to only use on a short-term basis? Do you know of any side effects or adverse reactions people may have had to this? I love homeopathic medicines as alternatives to prescription drugs due to the crazy side effects they have. Thanks!

    • Awesome question Jess!

      As I wrote, Arnica is the #1 remedy for bruises and injuries. Definitely should be considered for sports injuries, and there is much anecdotal and clinical evidence for that. See my article: Arnica Montana Homeopathic Remedy: What The M.D.’s Say for more information.

      Also, remedies do not have side effects. As an important part of the healing process, homeopathic aggravations may occur, which is the body’s way of surfacing suppressed symptoms (e.g. from drugs). They always lead to a higher and better healing experience.

      I do plan to write more about this as many others have asked me this question as well.

  • Hi ABaradarian, very interesting article, I like the way you presented very simple and easy to understand… You website looks very clean and professional.
