Creating Waves of Awareness
Few years back I had a stint as homeopathic medical officer in a reputed super specialty allopathic teaching hospital in Northern India. Our department integrated modern medicine with Homoeopathy in the treatment of trauma cases.
Homeopathy is very effective in posttraumatic healing because homeopathic remedies directly enhance the inherent healing capacity that exists within every person. We used homeopathic medicines to assist in post trauma healing and in reducing the pain of many types of trauma:
It makes no difference if the trauma is recent or very remote. If you are experiencing the effects of trauma of any kind, homeopathy can help you.
But I would like to add that homeopathy is not meant to replace emergency care or surgery when required, even in very severe injuries homeopathy can help to reduce the pain, to decrease the amount time needed for healing and to avoid the long-term effects of trauma.
I will discuss some specific cases in my next few posts.

Hey Ayush, Like this, cannot wait til we see some remedies etc,
These cases were inpatient ICU cases varying between 30% to 70-80% burn injuries of either the second degree or third degree. Needless to say the biggest challenge were the 70-80% and above burn cases, who invariably developed electrolyte imbalance and their immunity was compromised.
We followed a regime of Arnica, Calendula and Cantharis in the burn cases. Arnica helped in reducing the inflammation, whereas Calendula decreasedthe skin sloughing remarkably in higher vitality cases. Cantharis reduced the burning pains to quite an extent.
Post tissue heal and repair, in cases of skin grafting the role of Calendula 30 was very significant. In a study conducted by the hospital, patients who were given a trial of Calendula before, during and after the skin graft procedure, the graft acceptance increased by 60%.
Lycopodium in higher potency (1M) is a good remedy for post burn scars.
