Arnica the Miracle Remedy --- Case Records Started by: Joe De Livera at September 10 2006

I am copying below a few interesting cases where I have used Arnica with success. It will be observed
that some of the ailments that I have used this remedy for are not listed in the Materia Medicas currently
in use and this has attracted a lot of criticism for me for having used it in what has been termed a Non
Classical manner which according to some protagonists of the classical school can lead to dangerous
I have the pleasure of recording however that I have never had any reports of any dire consequences
following the use of this amazing remedy and all the patients whom I have treated have been grateful
that I have helped them in a manner that no one had helped them before.
WOUNDS 30c Arnica 30c is the classical remedy to help cure wounds.
GENERAL TONIC IN DAILY USE 30c I have used Arnica 30c which I discovered was better than the 6c
for the last 10 years every night or more often in the case of need like after surgery. I believe that I owe
to it my sense of wellness. I do not have any ache or pain in my body and I have proved that it is to
Arnica that I owe my BP 120/80 with pulse 65 at age 76. I invite others to use it and to record their
response to this remedy.
SUBSTITUTE FOR MORPHINE POST MAJOR SURGERY 200c and 30c I have used Arnica myself after
my Retropubic Prostatectomy and can confidently recommend it for use after any major surgery. When I
regained consciousness I noticed the Morphine syringe attached to the IV line and promptly ordered it
removed to the consternation of the nursing staff and the surgeon, who warned me that I could even
suffer from a major shock due to the pain without the morphine. I stated that I will use my Arnica alone to
control the pain and they were very surprised to note that I was relatively free of pain after a few hours. I
was able to leave my bed on the third day without any pain medication except for the Arnica I used every
2 hours at first and every 3 hours later. I was discharged on the 5th day and walked to my car. They
were all amazed at my extremely quick recovery in 2002 when I was 73 years old.
I would like to recount my experience yesterday December 4 2008, with my surgery.
I woke up around 4.30AM as my surgeon had instructed me to not eat any food or drink after 5.00AM.
After breakfast I took 4 pellets Arnica 30c sublingually and repeated 2 doses of 2 pellets each till
11.00AM when I was wheeled to the theater.

The surgery took just over half hour and after I recovered from the general anesthesia and was
returned to my room, I took 2 pellets every 2 hours and was surprised that I was able to get out of bed
and walk to the toilet within 3 hours post surgery. I was later given the usual antibiotic and noticed
another tablet which I was supposed to take and upon inquiry I discovered that it was Diclofenac Sodium
50mg, the standard pain medication given post Op. I refused to take it and informed the nurse that I was
already using my own Homeopathic pain medication, Arnica.
It was the total absence of pain that I was impressed with and my surgeon and the nurses were
surprised that I did not require the Diclofenac Sodium 50mg pain medication. My surgeon was quite
impressed with the pain relief that Arnica gave me and I gave him the balance of the pellets which I had
in a little glass vial which he wished to experiment with. I walked to my car about a hundred meters from
my room and walked up the stairs at home to my room and did not experience any acute pain at all.
It is my hope that members who read this account will also use Arnica in the manner described and
experience a very fast recovery from the trauma of post surgical pain.
EASES URINE FLOW CAUSED BY BPH 30c Wet Dose I used Sabal S 6c when I discovered that I was
allergic to Hytrin that was prescribed for my BPH. I changed over to Sabal S and Conium but discovered
when I used Arnica for a slight wound that it was far superior to the other remedies I used for BPH and I
stayed with it from 1996 up to today.
HELPS TO CONTROL INCONTINENCE AFTER TURP 30c It amazes me how this remedy that I have
given over 20 patients who were suffering from the after effects of the TURP (trans urethral resection of
the prostate) surgery who were incontinent due to some misadventure on the part of the Uro who had
obviously damaged the sphincter muscle in the neck of the bladder. Arnica gave more time between
visits to the toilet and in many cases it stabilized the incontinence in a few months. Others use it on a
twice daily basis. Always in the water dose.
JET LAG 30c I have used it for many years on every overseas trip. Dosage is 1 teaspoonful taken 3
times on the day before departure. Dry doses to be taken every 3 hours on board and 3 times on the
day after arrival.
lost motor control of his hands and feet for about a year and was confined to either his bed or a chair
where he was placed by his children. Drugs that were prescribed were not effective. This case was
referred to me and my response was an act of faith on my part in giving him Arnica 1M which I gave him
in the water dose. He was completely cured in 2 months. The dosage used was 1 teaspoonful (capful)
twice daily. He is now quite mobile and does not use the remedy any more.
MENTAL DEGENERATION IN THE AGED 1M I used Arnica 1M dose 1 tsp daily in the case of a 75 year
old who was showing signs of Alzheimer's and he showed perceptible improvement in 2 weeks which was
continued thereafter. He is now permanently on the Arnica. Dose 1 tsp daily.
CHRONIC ACHES AND PAINS 30c I have used it very often when the patient complains of general body
pain (not arthritic). It is also useful for chronic back pain due to previous injuries. Sciatica is also helped
by a twice daily dose.
INSOMNIA 30c Almost everyone who has taken 1 teaspoonful of this remedy in the water dose prior to
sleep has noticed the deep unbroken sleep that they experienced during the night. They wake up quite
refreshed with a zing in their steps.
ECZEMA 6c I have used it in over 30 cases some of which were chronic for over 10 years and within a
week, the patient is usually cured. The success rate is better that 80%. I recommend that the remedy is
continued but those who did not do so after about 3 months do not use it anymore and can be
considered permanently cured. The skin condition after this time resembles Vitiligo especially in the
chronic cases which had eroded the melanin in the skin which does not regenerate but there is no
discomfort or itchiness.

I have also applied the water in which a few pellets of Arnica 6c are dissolved in a spoon directly on the
lesion which accelerates the healing process.
CELLULITIS 30c I first used this remedy for a 78 year old lady who was suffering from recurrent
reinfection of her legs. She had been to hospital every 6 months on 3 occasions for about a week each
time where she was treated with the most powerful antibiotics which left her drained out like a rag. When
she came out on the last occasion I gave her Arnica 30c in the water dose and she takes 1 teaspoonful
before sleep. She was also an insomniac and now enjoys deep sleep and for the last 2 years she has
not suffered from any reinfection from her Cellulitis. I have also used it for 3 other patients also in the
same age group who had been hospitalized at least twice before in each case and they do not have any
reinfection after many months or years. The Arnica seems to help by increasing the blood flow in the
capillaries under the skin which in turn prevents reinfection. They have however to be on one dose of
Arnica permanently.
PROMOTES GROWTH OF HAIR 30c I would refer to the many posts on the ABC forum where I have
been advocating the use of Arnica 6c for hair growth. The success rate has been better than 80%. I use
Weisbaden 200c for the stubborn cases which is taken every other day.
ANGINA 30c Many who were using Nitroglycerine on a SOS basis have been able to replace the drug
with Arnica 30c in the Wet Dose taken twice daily. They have all confirmed that they are not affected by
Angina any more.
It is however important that the patient has his Blood Pressure and Lipid Profile checked regularly.
CHRONIC HEADACHE 30c I used Arnica in many cases that were not reacting to Bryonia 30 which is my
default remedy for headaches and it worked well.
INTERNAL HAEMORRHAGE IN A HAEMOPHILIAC 30c I am treating a boy who is now 6 years for the last
3 years who is a Haemophiliac with Arnica 30c for internal bleeding when he suffers from any fall or
bump which causes a swelling and pain usually on his joints. The Arnica helps to dissipate the blood
and reduces the swelling. I use Lachesis 200c for open cuts which bleed profusely and this arrests the
bleeding in about 15 minutes. Prior to this therapy the boy had to be rushed to hospital for a drip with
every fall or cut.
PIMPLES, ACNE, BLEPHARITIS, ROSACEA, STYES 30c Hundreds of teenagers have benefited by the
use of Arnica 30c. I can vouch personally for its efficacy to control styes which I used to get weekly with
painful results.
BED SORES 30c Prevents their formation.
DARK CIRCLES UNDER EYES 6c Removes them in a week
NOSE BLEED 200c The ultimate remedy.
RHEUMATISM AND GOUT 30c I believe that it helps to dissipate the swelling of the synovial fluid which
causes pain. I treat the Arthritis with Rhus Tox 1M and Hypericum 200c to alleviate the pain both taken in
the wet dose.
ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION 6c I have many patients who have certified that it works like a charm !
TONSILLITIS 30c Helps to alleviate the swelling and pain. This remedy is only effective as soon as the
tonsils show signs of discomfort. Chronic cases have to be treated with an antibiotic. This remedy
controls the formation of Tonsiloliths but it has to be taken on a daily basis to be effective in this control.
DIABETES 30c I consider that this is easily my most important discovery which I made quite accidentally
a year ago when I gave Arnica 30c to a MD who was a Type I Diabetic to help cure a chronic non
healing wound. He informed me on the day after he took 2 doses that his Blood Sugar had dropped
drastically and refused to use it anymore as he felt that it was some mysterious medicine which he did
not wish to experiment with as he was already on Insulin which he injected himself 4 times daily. I then

gave this remedy to two Type II Diabetics and discovered that they had the same reaction when their BS
dropped considerably similar to the drop caused by Metformin. I then prescribed 1/4 teaspoonful
Cinnamon powder to be used twice daily and have 2 patients who are able to control their ailment
without recourse to the standard drugs used for the control of Diabetes.
HYPERTENSION 30C Many patients with High Blood Pressure have confirmed that they are able to
control their ailment without resorting to the usual drugs prescribed to control BP.
ALCOHOLISM 30C Many Alcoholics have confirmed that they lose their craving for that next drink within
a few days of starting on this remedy. Many have been able to stay dry for months after starting on the
remedy which is taken twice daily.
I have received reports from chronic smokers who have in some cases been smoking 50 cigarettes per
day that after a few days on Arnica 30 they noticed a marked decrease of their craving for a smoke. A
few smokers have been able to quit the habit.
Reduced brown spots on her upper cheek bone which she had from 1996 in just 2 days.
Improvement in eyesight of both husband and wife who discovered that they do not need spectacles to
watch TV.
CATARACT Arnica 30c in the Wet Dose taken twice daily retards the progress of a Cataract and some
cases have been reported of patients whose cataract has not "matured" even 15 years after it was first
diagnosed. It is important however that treatment is commenced as early as possible with Arnica after a
Cataract is first diagnosed.
This was the case of a 50 year old lady who had uncontrollable bleeding for 2 weeks which was arrested
within a few hours after the first dose of Arnica 30c
Patient confirms that he was able to stop using Statins in 7 months.
Praveen Wadhwa (Girilal) reported a few weeks ago that he had observed that Arnica 6c suppresses a
I would like to place on record that I have used Arnica every day since 1996. I can personally vouch for
the fact that it is absolutely safe in daily use and can be considered a great blessing to those who use it
regularly every night. Many who have met me cannot believe that I am 79 years old (in 2008) as they
invariably estimate my age at 15 to 20 years younger than I really am. My skin does not show any signs
of aging and my BP is 120/80 with pulse 65.
I have no doubt that I owe my present state of wellness to Arnica.
