As a mom of three boys and an older dog, wounds, sprains, and bruises are a common occurrence in my household.
Back in 2015, my youngest had a staph infection on his upper thigh. The infection was treated by his pediatrician with both topical and oral antibiotics. This was before I knew about the Banerji Protocols and I wasn’t quite comfortable treating this type of infection with my classical homeopathy skills. Oh how I wish I would have known! But, now, I know better so that I can do better.
Last Thursday, my son had a red, swollen bump with a yellowish head on his elbow. Although it was suspiciously similar to his 2015 staph infection, I chose to treat the wound like it was a boil.
As we know, Homeopathy is a form of treatment that has negligible side effects and is very effective at speeding up the healing process for wounds.
I started using Hepar Sulph 6c twice daily and was applying Calendula Mother Tincture topically. However, after giving him four doses, I didn’t see any improvement. Perplexed, I contacted two fellow Academy of Practical Homeopathy students. They suggested that I up the potency of Hepar Sulph to 200c every three hours and layer in HyperArs (Hypericum and Arsenicum Album) three times daily. Bingo! Potency matters! After one week, his wound is healing quite nicely and he’s well on the road to recovery.
All this, without dangerous side effects and with results that last. There’s nothing more empowering than helping your child heal. Onwards and upwards.
