We recently had an incident. My toddler threw her eye into the corner of a desk, then came to me screaming. Under her eye was starting to puff and huge crocodile tears created a very sad scene.
I knew just what to do though. I scooped her up and ran to the bathroom. Not to clean her wound. Not to get a cold compress. Not to get tissue.
To get the homeopathic Arnica.
I knew I had only about fifteen minutes to get the Arnica in her system to prevent bruising. I also knew that every moment that went by, the harder it would be for the Arnica to prevent swelling and bruising and the pain that accompanies the swelling and bruising.
After the dose of Arnica I gave a bunch of forehead kisses, and I cleaned the area to prevent infection. Before long, the swelling was gone, and all that was left was a tiny cut. She had no bruising and no swelling.
In the event of an injury more significant than minor toddling mishaps, remember, arnica can not take the place of a doctor.
