Flashburn (AKA: Welder’s Eye Burn)?

I remember my father having to pause, annoyed, as he rested his eyes from a sudden incident of “welder’s flashburn.” This is like a sunburn to the eye, the more serious burns resulting in pain and redness. A proper assessment by your doctor is highly recommended for this event; however, few will actually go. To preserve your vision for your senior years, here are 4 practical treatments that offer relief and effective recovery for an eye flashburn/sunburn:

  1. Raw potato poultice – shred potato, clump it together and apply to closed eye(s)
  2. Vitamin A oil drops – apply to open eye(s)
  3. Cold pack – apply to closed eye(s) for 10 minutes
  4. Euphrasia 30Ch homeopathic – take as per label

FYI: potatoes can stain purple or black.

Consult your ND or MD as to whether any of the above remedies are right for you.

Hey Doc, What’s a Common Homeopathic Remedy for Canker Sores?

Nat mur (Natrum muriaticum)!

Try a 30CH potency and take 3 pellets 1-3 times a day until the canker sores are clearly going away.

What To Do For A Teething/Possessed Infant?

Boiron, a homeopathic company, makes a remedy called Camilia. A classmate of mine who happens to be a mother of three swears by this remedy, as well as my very own sister who is a mother of two. Dan Conner (Roseanne) also suggests using frozen waffles for the little monsters to gum on, as the waffles are quite pliable and are an excellent tool for soaking up drool.

Post Surgical Infection

If you are having surgery and would like to take something to help reduce the risk of infection, I strongly recommend consulting a naturopathic physician; they can suggest many things. However, if that is not an option, you can try a standard homeopathic first aid remedy known for treating post surgical infection – Calendula. Try a 30CH potency and use as directed.

Post Injury Sciatica

There is a specific homeopathic first aid remedy for sciatica following injury – Ruta graveolens. The standard practice for first aid potencies in homeopathy are 30ch and 200ch. As always, it is best to first consult a naturopathic or homeopathic doctor to determine whether Ruta is the right choice for you.

First Aid Rescue For Bites & Stings

Got an animal bite, insect bite, or a simple sting? Ledum is the classic homeopathic first aid remedy used to treat such a case. Try a 30CH potency and take as directed or with increased frequency. Obviously seek medical attention if injury is severe or if you are worried about infection.

Smoking Tip #2

If you are planning on quitting smoking or any addiction, here’s an aid to help reduce the cravings. Homeopathic remedy: Tabacum. Start with 30CH and if no result then move to a higher potency (2ooCH, 1M, etc.).

If you feel you need more support, acupuncture treatments are also beneficial, and are safe to combine with homeopathy. Furthermore, botanical supplements prescribed by your naturopathic doctor (ND) will  support your body through the withdrawal period. Contact an ND  before booking and ask that all of these modalities will be used, as not all NDs practice Chinese medicine.

Homeopathic Controversy?

Since 1988, homeopathy has been clouded in controversy. First it was scientifically acknowledged and published, then it was retracted through scandalous means. The following letter came up in class regarding the use of homeopathy during the 1918 flu pandemic that infected over 500 million people worldwide, and killed 50-100 million individuals.

The New England Medical Gazette,
Vol. 53, 1918

To the Editor: I have been so busy fighting ” Spanish Flu ” that I have found time for nothing else for several weeks. I want to tell you my experience with the disease, for I am proud of what homeopathy was able to do out here in this small city in South Dakota. In all, I treated 188 cases of Spanish Influenza. Of the above number I treated 169 cases from the initial fever and 19 cases … [in late] stage … [who] called me only when the disease got the best of them. Of the 169 initial cases I lost not one, neither did I have a relapse…  Of the 19 late cases all but three recovered…. One lived but eight hours after pneumonia set in; one, two days; the third had endocarditis which ended the scene five days after a relapse. To recapitulate: I treated 188 cases and had three deaths. Among these 188 cases I had every variety of ” Flu ” and required a variety of remedies. I commenced every case with Gelsemium and Bryonia, which seemed to rob the case of its tendency toward pneumonia…. In not one case did I find it necessary to use any of the old-school remedies….

Yours truly,  Arthur B. Hawes, M.D.
