A student came to the practice complaining about loss of focus, lack of endurance, anxiety and mood swings. These symptoms had started to develop 5 weeks prior, after bumping her head against the metal frame of a bed. The immediate impact was not very painful, but the next day she woke up with nausea and she vomited. Headaches ensued and the capacity to process information and cope with daily life started to decrease over the last few weeks. ”I have to do a lot of reading, but my potential of reading has grown less than before and it is growing worse every day. When its time to concentrate I can’t be there. When someone tells me to do this or that I forget about it. I can only read a short period of time. After 30 min I need a break. The headaches I have feel as if there is not enough space in my head and I have the feeling that my brain cannot process all information. I have grown sensitive to lights and sounds and prefer to stay in a dark room at times. For weeks after the concussion, I did not go to school- just spent time in bed. Also I have a lot of anxiety, independent on what I am doing during the day or in times of exams. This constant anxiety uses up my energy and burns me constantly.”
While the majority of concussion symptoms will resolve within about two weeks, for
10% -30% of affected people the development of persisting a Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a relatively common complication of concussion recovery. Though PCS does get better over time- it may take weeks, months or years to fully recover from these symptoms.
Homeopathy offers proven remedies that speed up the healing dramatically after head and brain injury.
My patient received a potentised mineral salt, Natrium sulphuricum 30 C to take at certain intervals. The first two days she developed a slightly stronger headache, but felt each time a bit better afterwards. This is the typical healing reaction.
In a follow-up I had with her 3 months later, she came with a big smile. The post concussion symptoms were a condition from way back in the past. She had completely recovered. Her headaches, sensitivity and anxiety were gone and her health was fully restored to the time before the concussion event- in less than 2 weeks after taking the first dose!
Homeopathy reaches those subtle levels of our body, where trauma is felt as a shock and leaves an imprint on the whole being. This shock can be healed and erased with the right homeopathic remedy faster and more effective. Herein lies this often unnoticed and overlooked power of potentised homeopathic remedies, offering a safe and natural way to heal.
