Prevent a Concussion in Less than a Minute

Brains. We need them. Ideally in top form.

So it is no surprise that athletes, parents of athletes, and the general public is disconcerted by the frequency of concussions. In fact, it is a top reason for sports-related E.R. visits. [1]

And what can homeopathy do about it?!

Homeopathy is excellent at reducing inflammation and swelling.* It also has the advantage of being extremely portable so you can take it ASAP after the offending injury. In fact, that’s a key reason my G4 Kit is so small. With a small kit, we can take it most anywhere, so we have access to the remedies we need when we need them. The sooner we get started on our healing, the better. So take a dose while en route to the E.R.

Head Injuries was born of the desire to prevent head injuries from resulting in concussions.

The G4 Kit contains two remedies for emergency situations–Major Injuries and Head Injuries. For a long time, I just used Major Injuries for serious head injuries, and First Aid / First Aid Oil for bumps to the head [and you still can–see below]. But a PRO client of mine had a friend who suffered a concussion. Seeing the fallout for his friend, my client asked for a remedy for concussion to have on-hand. Of course I gave it to him. But I decided then and there that I’d rather all my clients have a specific Head Injuries remedy to prevent the injury from developing into a concussion!

My Head Injuries remedy is crafted to be highly effective and fast:

  • It’s with you wherever you are. The sooner you get started with healing, the better.
  • Head Injuries uses high potencies, so they are highly effective in emergency situations. Typically one dose is all that is needed.
  • Homeopathy typically begins producing improvement for injuries within 10 -15 minutes.*
  • Head Injuries uses a combination of two remedies to address swelling and blunt force injuries.
  • The little pillules are easy to administer to someone in an awkward position–just tuck them in a cheek or under a tongue. They dissolve quickly and get to work immediately–even before they’re fully dissolved.

Thus far, the clients who have needed to use Head Injuries report success–i.e., progressive disappearance of pain, swelling, and other symptoms. And avoidance of the E.R.

Even if we do end up in the E.R., by reducing the inflammation immediately, outcomes are improved.*

Why do I care so much?

Besides the obvious–I care because my life’s work is true health, and it’s my work to keep athletes in top form…

This one–protecting the brain–does hit close to home. My own daughter suffered a brain injury in the NICU as the result of a medical mistake. Recovering her has been a very long and arduous–albeit rewarding–path. If my experience can translate into brain injury prevention for you, I thank God for that opportunity. I’ll never be able to go back in time to prevent her brain injury, but I can help you prevent one now. I cannot guarantee it, but there’s no harm in trying.**

What happens after I take it?

Here’s one person’s experience using Head Injuries:

I had an out of body experience for only a short period of time probably seconds. Although, when I first fell off, I had been sitting on the table backwards so I hit the back of my head. At first, it felt like a throbbing headache except it was radiating across my head. It went deep into my head and stayed like that for a little bit. Then, eventually I got the Head Injuries and First Aid Oil; it reduced to where it just felt like a large bruise.

–9-year-old, describing his experience with Head Injuries after falling backwards off a coffee table

Other clients report that the pain and swelling [if there is any] subsides within 5-15 minutes from a single dose. Those who have begun driving to the E.R. found that the upon arrival, mentals were great while pain and swelling was completely gone, thereby negating the need for further intervention.

Clients also report something beautiful: Because the pain disappeared so quickly, so easily, and without a whole lot of hoopla, the athlete suffered no residual fear of the activity that gave rise to the injury in the first place. This is key for anyone, really: Who needs to be blocked from daily living by fear?

And this is the kind of outcome that feeds the souls of everyone involved: We have health, progress, and empowerment as the result of one dose of a remedy.

What’s in it?

It contains homeopathic Ledum in high potency. Ledum is highly regarded in homeopathy for its benefit to a person who has suffered an injury to the head. [Incidentally, it also is beneficial for black eyes for the same reason.] Head Injuries also contains Arnica in high potency, which is great at reducing swelling, bruising.

Thus far, the reports I have had from clients are all positive that they are able to avert a concussion by using the Head Injuries remedy. One client also used the First Aid Oil from the G4 Kit on the cheeks of the person with the injury to give an extra assist in bringing down inflammation. The added advantage of this choice is that my First Aid remedies include Hypericum, which is beneficial for nerve damage. If you suspect nerve damage, consider either adding the First Aid remedy or the First Aid Oil.

My Major Injuries remedy simply contains Arnica. This is a high potency Arnica that is used, for example, by plastic surgeons to reduce swelling, bruising, etc. that result from considerable injuries to the body. It’s well regarded in homeopathy for its ability to bring down swelling and is often used in hospital settings around the world as a standard for brain injuries. If you are out of Head Injuries or for some reason only have Major Injuries with you, it’s definitely worth taking for any significant injury for that very reason–reduce the swelling and inflammation, and buy yourself some time to get to the E.R.

Who needs it?

Head Injuries is for a significant head injury.

This is an injury where the E.R. crosses your mind, at the very least. Usually, you will see that the injury caused at least a momentary droop in consciousness. You might even call 9-1-1 or begin your journey to the E.R. and dose en route if you can.

How do I take it?

Just pour a few pellets into your mouth.

  • If you are collected enough, you can pour them from the vial into the cap and then into the person’s mouth. Try to get them under the tongue or in the cheek to dissolve before they are swallowed.
  • If you are shaking, frazzled, in gloves, or in any other way unable to pour a capful, just shake a few pellets into the mouth of the person with the head injury.

Typically, only a single dose is needed. If you feel further doses are needed, you definitely should be under the care of a physician and a professional homeopath.

How do I get it?

It comes in the G4 Kit! If you don’t already have one and would like one, become a client!

The Quick Six: Major Injuries

This remedy is included in my G4 Kit, now available. Click to learn more.

Arnica is probably the best-known and most used of all homeopathic remedies.  I would guess that it is the remedy that most frequently introduces people to homeopathy.

And with good reason.  Arnica is kind of the if-I-were-stuck-on-an-island remedy.  So The Quick Six would be incomplete without a higher potency vial of homeopathic Arnica.

It is beneficial for a whole host of physical trauma injuries–and to prevent injuries, too [e.g., to reduce bleeding during surgery].

The Remedy:

If you–or the users of your kit–are less familiar with homeopathy, Arnica 200c would be adequate.  I stock a higher potency in my G4 Kit.

The Uses:

Arnica in high potency, such as what is in the G4 kit or even a 200c, is the kind of remedy that you take when you think you might need to head to an emergency room–or en route to the emergency room.  We use it for injuries from falls, blows…the kinds of injuries that cause swelling or bruising.

Arnica makes a great topical spray–prepare it as you would the Cuts & Bumps / First Aid combo spray [1-2 doses per 2 oz. of water] and use it for any surface injuries that make you think of Arnica.  We use the straight-up Arnica spray where an injury does not break the skin and is not in a nerve-rich area. By contrast, you won’t be surprised to learn that we use the Cuts & Bumps / First Aid combo where injuries break the skin, are in nerve-rich areas, and/or are expected to cause swelling or bruising.

I keep the Cuts & Bumps / First Aid combo spray in my purse, but both sprays at home.

The Arnica spray also could be used on tired muscles after a particularly long afternoon in the garden or dancing, for instance.

Homeopathic Corpse Reviver

The other day, my dog soaked in the sun and the fresh air, came inside, made his way upstairs to me, and sat down.  He was panting in the middle of Winter, and every once in a while, he would just stop breathing.  His eyes were glassy and seemed difficult for him to keep open.  For a long time, I sat with him, loving on him, thinking that this was our good-bye.

He is 8 years old in a breed that generally lives 15 years or so, but a year ago he had a severe reaction to a vaccine.  He almost died, but I treated him homeopathically for the vaccine injury.  Still, his health has not been optimal since then.  Cynthia Slon had recently warned me that his aura was detaching from his body.  Not a good sign.  But at least it prepared me for the day where he sat with me trying to have what I thought was his last breath.Doggy Love

But on that day, he was holding on.  So after some time, I fetched the Homeopathic Corpse Reviver from my collection.  I gave him a 6c, and he stopped panting and walked around for 5 minutes after that.  But then the breathing issues started back in.  So I gave him a 200c.  That was the end of that.  It’s probably been a month, and he has had only one short episode of panting and coughing since then, which quickly resolved on its own.

The No. 1 Homeopathic Corpse Reviver is made from vegetable charcoal and called Carbo Vegetabilis.  It’s available at many health food stores and in the Helios self-care kits, where the Accidents & Emergencies kit has a 200c.

The Sooner The Better

The sooner you get to an issue, the better.  Pretty much always, and with every modality.  For acute issues and issues that have become chronic.

This is why I am a huge proponent of treating children [yes, even babies] who are having a tough time.  And one reason I carry remedies with me at all times.

Many issues result from some sort of trauma.  The sooner you remove that traumatic layer from your body and psyche, the better!  You will still remember it and be informed by it, but it will no longer have a hold on your body or your emotions.

We can even take a simple example like a baby who enters the world with a physical issue.  The resulting accommodations–logistical, emotional, in parenting–can change the parent-child dynamic, the child’s expectations of the world, etc.  The longer they persist, the more likely they are to be internalized by the child, etc.

It is exactly like habit formation—it is easier to prevent a bad habit than it is to break one.

And it’s a bit like making a snowman out of a snowball.

Prevent Trauma from Taking Hold

I like to keep Rescue Remedy [a Bach Flower Essence] and homeopathic Aconite [for fright, shock, trauma] with me.  I find Rescue Remedy and EFT helpful for milder situations, and Aconite 200c tends to be what I use if I’m so upset that I’m shaking or my child is so upset s/he cannot catch a breath to speak.  It resolves the fright so that we can deal with the situation at hand calmly, which has lovely practical implications!  It also heals the fear immediately so that it doesn’t have a chance to get a foothold.

I carry a single dose of Arnica 200 with me everywhere!
I carry a single dose of Arnica 200 with me everywhere!

The cause of the emotion, and the emotional state itself, are clear in that moment and the moments that follow.  That makes them exceedingly easy to treat right then.  But if you let “time heal all wounds,” without addressing the actual emotional injuries as well as any physical injuries, the physical injuries might heal while the emotional ones simply fester.  You might be able to look back and say, “It all started after that incident.”  And you might be able to recall the emotions that arose then.  But often we simply don’t recall all of those details or are simply in the habit of ignoring our emotions.

Prevent Sickness or Ailments from Taking Hold

There are numerous proponents of leaving fevers/colds/coughs/flu’s to do their thing, but if you simply do not have the wherewithal to do that, the earlier you treat them, the better your results are likely to be.  If you’re really in-touch with your body, you’ll know when you’re just a bit too fatigued or you have a vaguely sore throat, and you can boost your immune system with vitamin C and the like.  Homeopathically, you can take something like Ferrum Phosphoricum 6x or 6c or 30c when you are feeling those early symptoms.  If it comes on suddenly and with vigor, you could take a small dose [5-10 granules] of homeopathic Oscillococcinum to try to stop it in its tracks.

For physical ailments, I carry Arnica 200c with me at all times–I even put it in a waterproof iPhone case for the beach and pool!  It doesn’t cover everything, but it is the one thing most likely to help in most situations where you are in an uh-oh state!  In fact, recently on a family trip to the beach, my husband was stung by something when a wave rushed in while working on a sandcastle.  He took the stinger out immediately, and I gave him a dose of Arnica 200.  At that point, we had no idea what it was, only that it wasn’t good.  It helped tremendously, even though Arnica is not the most oft-described remedy for assisting with stings, bites, or the like.

Prevent a Chronic Issue from Worsening

For chronic issues, the sooner you address them, the better, in my opinion and my experience.  Chances are that you will need the help of a healer with that, so start asking around for some referrals!
