Natural Shock Therapy
“Arnica is one of the best remedies for those who are in a state of shock,” says Vinton McCabe, author of The Healing Enigma: Demystifying Homeopathy. “And the shock need not have come about as a result of mechanical injury.” According to McCabe, this shock can include bad news, emotional upset, the loss of a loved one, or other trauma.
“For people needing arnica, touch is a major issue,” says McCabe. “The whole body becomes overly sensitive. Their sense of touch has been altered through their trauma, so that everything overwhelms them as concerns the sense of touch.”
People suffering from shock who feel wounded, seem disoriented, and/ or are worse from any jarring or sudden movements respond well to arnica, says McCabe.
