My holiday weekend plans went awry when I stepped halfway off a curb while walking the dog. My toes went one way while my heel went the other, and I went down.
My kids like to say that gravity is not my friend.
And just that fast, I had an avulsion fracture of the fifth metatarsal.
As it happens, my line of work has taught me a few good remedies for pain management and bone healing.
As far as standard first aid, when I got home I propped my foot on pillows so that it was higher than my heart and I used ice packs on and off for the first few hours to combat the swelling that had started immediately.
Homeopathic Remedies for Injuries
The most important homeopathic remedy for any injury is always Arnica Montana to reduce the swelling and bruising. I started with a teaspoon of potency of 200C dissolved in water. I took a dose daily for the first three days after the break.
The best homeopathic remedy for knitting broken bones back together is Symphatum. I plan to take Symphatum 30C for the next week or two.
BEMER: The Best Pain Management Device. Ever
This European electra-ceutical device delivers rhythmic magnetic pulses that open up the capillary-level vessels to increase oxygen delivery to the cells while facilitating removal of waste products. I wrapped the pad around my foot and ran the 8-minute program at levels 8, 9, and 10 multiple times for acute therapeutic effects.
If I had needed any more convincing as to the benefits of the BEMER, relief from the pain of the break was quick and cumulative. No prescription drugs or their nasty side effects needed!
Within just a few days I’m already able to put some weight on that foot. Amazing speed healing, especially for a middle-aged person like myself!
Moving forward, I’m also going to increase my Vitamin D to help the bone heal. Be sure to take vitamin D with some fat to help absorption!
