I had two teeth pulled yesterday. One was infected and the two were next to each other.
I didn’t need any pain medicine and here’s why.
I wanted to share with you my personal experience with oral surgery and the Homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana First, lets address what Homeopathic Medicine is, then how it is developed and what is Arnica Montana?
Homeopathic Medicine uses highly diluted biological, botanical, or mineral substances to relieve symptoms. It is a known medical system developed in German more than 200 years ago. It’s based on the theories “Like cures like”.
So what does this mean? We all know while cooking when cutting up onions our eyes can get watery similar to the way we experience an allergy or a cold. The Homeopathic theory takes onion (Latin: Alium Cepa) and creates a remedy from the onion which is used by those with a reaction from an allergy or cold to eliminate the runny eye experience. So “like cures like”.
The Science for those interested.
Remedies are typically derived from plants, herbs, minerals, or animal products. They are crushed and dissolved in alcohol and/or water, the selected substance undergoes a long process of dilution and succussion (a process that involves vigorous shaking of the solution)
So a substance (arnica or onion) is placed in a glass container with distilled water or alcohol and the glass is shaken or banged from the bottom (called succussion). What this does is share frequency information from the onion or Anica with the liquid. Then one drop is taken from there and placed in a tube along with either 10 drops (1X) or 99 drops (1C) of distilled water. A drop is taken from this new solution and again placed with either 10 drops (2X) or 99 drops (2C). This is then done again and again at multiples of 6 times, 12 times, 30 times, 200 times up to 10 million times.
The resultant liquid is then placed on sugar pellets and stored in bottles. This does not expire. So what you end up with is the frequency of the remedy being created which is in each pellet. Notice that you are not taking the molecule of the substance (onion or Arnica Montana) but rather it frequencies.
To get a better picture of why this works check out Dr Masaru Emoto’s book “Hidden Messages in Water ” or search for what he did on Youtube. Since this science is based on frequencies there have been no contraindications or drug interactions known for the past 200 years. They are actually energies from nature that work with the body which are not found in prescription medications.
So what is Arnica Montana?
The Arnica montana plant is a natural pain reliever that is used in homeopathic medicine temporarily to relieve muscle pain & stiffness without unwanted drowsiness or the side effects experienced with other over the counter pain medicines.
So I had an infection under a tooth that was a old root canal tooth. So the root is no longer present. The tooth is located on the bottom left and third from the back. The tooth behind it (or the second from the back) also was in trouble. It was decided to remove both teeth.
Standard dental protocols were followed: the two teeth were pulled at 1pm, the cavity areas were cleaned and scraped, bone grafting was needed and added and finally stitches were deployed. The follow up provided was antibiotics, pain killers, ice packs 15 min on and 15 min off and caveat protocols for a few days after the surgery.
I chose to precede this with Homeopathic Remedies instead along with the antibiotics and protocols afterwards for the handling of the stitches. On my way to the dentist for the extractions I took the standard Homeopathic dosage for Arnica Montana (200c) of 5 pellets.
Arriving home numb from the shots I again took another dosage of the Arnica and proceeded to do that each hour. I did do the ice protocols and took the antibiotics but never got the pain killer prescribed. I was advised to get Advil or Ibuprofen so I did buy it but never opened the bottle.
Experience wise I never had swelling or pain. Bleeding wise I had to change the gauze every hour which lasted until 7pm when I realized that the little blood experienced may have been from placing the gauze in the area and will a little bit I stopped using the gauze. I also used the Homoepathic remedy Phosphorus (30c) of 2 dosages as this stops heaving bleeding and stopped after two dosages.
At night, I was delightfully surprised when I realized that I had no pain all day, the swelling never happened.
I properly took and continue to take the antibiotic due to the infection I had, and the amount of work the dentist had to clean the area so please do the same.
Today it feels fine and healed nicely so I’m now following the post-protocols of rinsing the extraction area with warm salt water after each meal and not brushing for two more days. Standard dental protocols.
I just wanted to share this for those who may be scheduled for this or going through this presently. Also research how Arnica works for muscle aches and pains as well.
