Arnica: The Homeopathic First Aid

A few years ago, I attempted a really foolish thing.  While trying to coax my cat from the top of our roof; standing on a rickety wooden ladder; barefooted; saucer of milk in my right hand and reaching for the cat with my left … I took a serious fall.  I had the cat in one hand and not wanting to crush my kitty,  managed to twist my body so that I would not land on her or hit my head on the saltillo tile in our atrium.  In doing this magnificent feat I landed hard on my right side, twisting my right leg, ankle and foot.  I could feel nothing for the first couple of hours and then the pain came!!!!  I couldn’t tell if I had broken anything or not.

Surprisingly I broke nothing, but I was told I would be on crutches for weeks and be badly bruised and swollen.  After returning home from the hospital, I had remembered that my Grandmother had a “magic” cream for twisted limbs and bruises, Arnica.
