Head Injury or Concussion - Four Medicines You Really Don't Want to Be Without
Head injury, or concussion, has the potential of being very serious. Even a mild head injury can cause headaches and other symptoms, such as convulsions.
Your brain is soft tissue encased in your scull which is hard tissue. It is a very sensitive organ. It is at one end of your spinal column, meaning it's rich in nerves.
So already you are looking at medicines for
- soft tissue
- hard tissue
- nerve tissue
- ailments (such as headaches, convulsions) from concussion
Lets look at them one at a time, as it's possible you'll need all or some of them.
Arnica is the top injury medicine for any type of injury, and the number one for concussion. Even without thinking about it, you'll do yourself untold good if you get stuck into this medicine right away. If bleeding occurs in your brain from an injury, this remedy is likely to stop it.
Bleeding in your brain is a serious symptom, as there is no room for the blood to go, being that your scull can't expand. So take Arnica frequently, if the injury has occurred within the last day or two.
The next medicine, is for the scull, or hard tissue. Symphytum is the number one medicine for bone damage. It takes the pain away and heals broken or cracked bones fast.
Nerve damage can occur and the best medicine to take for this is Hypericum. Nerve damage is associated with a shooting sensation, stinging pains, tingling or numbness. Convulsions can be a result of serious nerve damage to your brain, so taking this after Arnica is likely to prevent that.
If you started to suffer headaches after your head injury, you may need any or all of the above medicines, but you may also need the following, too.
Natrum sulphuricum (Nat sul) is an excellent homeopathic medicine to heal those headaches or migraines, after concussion. Mostly the headaches will be worse during the day, and better at night time.
