SOS for a Broken Bone

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

Two weeks ago, this happened. This is a picture of my 4-year-old's broken collarbone. I always thought that if he were to break something, it might be while playing ice hockey – but this was done trying to do a somersault! Our little guy was in a lot of pain, but the doctor gave him a positive prognosis... as long as he was careful and took it easy. Easier said than done! The thing with a broken collarbone is that there is no cast or sling – it's just 4 to 6 weeks of rest. So we had to figure out something to heal our swimmer/hockey player a little more quickly so he could get back to his activities. Aside from being very, very careful, this is what he is doing for his broken bone: Symphytum officinale: This is a homeopathic remedy that is specific to promoting healing of bone trauma. He takes 5 pellets three times per day. Arnica montana: Another homeopathic remedy intended for any sort of trauma, pain or soreness. He also takes 5 pellets three times per day. Vitamin D: 2000IU per day. Vitamin D is essential to bone health, along with organic , whole-milk yogurt for calcium and magnesium. Eating green leafy veggies, like kale, spinach and rapini. He goes back to the doctor in 2 weeks to see how he is doing. He already has full range of his arm, which is a great sign. I will keep you posted!
