“My doctor recommended I take arnica 2 tablets every 4 hours to help with bruising post abdominoplasty. I have had diarrhea, sweats, fast heartbeat, cramping, nausea- all which can be excruciating following a tummy tuck. I forgot my dose of arnica in the afternoon ( post-op day 3) and I started feeling better, my symptoms were lessening. I wondered “ could it be the arnica?” I didn’t take it for the rest of the day, woke up feeling “great”. I thought in the name of science and curiosity I wonder if it is the arnica? I took my dose again- let me tell you, 30 minutes later... oh man. Cramps, nausea, diarrhea, no appetite, pain ! Yes, I do believe in homeopathic rx, I’m not trying to dissuade its uses- but listen to your body. I just wanted to post this so if there are others out there who are tirelessly searching the internet about the side-effects associated with arnica- they can see that yes, there are possibly side effects that positively suck.”
“I had a head injury caused during a car accident. Doctors advised me for the brain mapping and could not locate the cause of the headache, termed the case as an concussion which actually relates to the brain injury- rightly said, there were no available medicine to root out the problem except to wait for it to subside which could take from six months onwards, some advise that concussion is for lifetime. When I talked to my parents back in India I was advised to take Arnica (homeopathic medicine). I tried the medicine for a week and realized that concussion had actually reduced a lot. Arnica proved to be really effective.”
“Tincture of Arnica was a staple in my household growing up. I suspect it was an old German remedy. Whatever. IT WORKS. My aunt ran her arm through an old automatic wringer. "Get the Arnica!" It was applied liberally, and there was no bruising except where it was missed. My mother fell and broke her shoulder. "Get the Arnica!" We applied it everywhere, and same thing. Only where we missed was there bruising. Seriously, you can't believe this unless you see it for yourself. It's miraculous.”
“I was diagnosed with grade 2 spondylolisthesis at L4/L5 and degenerative disc disease about 4 years ago. These conditions and the pain caused by them are getting progressively worse. I'm unable to take opiods, gabapentin, lyrica, or NSAIDS and was desperate for relief. My chiropractor recommended this stuff. It's said to have no drug interactions, and my med list is 32 items long. Much to my great surprise, this stuff actually WORKS!! It doesn't take the pain away completely, but at least I can function. I'm grateful for it.”
“Arnica cream worked to reduce my joint pains however I want to caution it did interfere with blood thinners. I was using once a day on knees, backs thighs. I tested on fifth day and my INR was 4.3. Therapeutic in my case is 2.5-3.5.”
“Ok, so honestly I didn't think it would work on my Brown skin, but 100% it did and I'm shocked, I got hit in the face. The first night I didn't have this cream, I was using Coco butter, I googled something's and I came across this arnica cream and read reviews and watched YouTube videos about the arnica cream, though it was not much video, nor picture of people results. I was scared that the comments was a lie when I came across the reviews and mostly everyone loves the gel or cream. But anyway it worked the first night I put it on, my bruise is not entirely gone. I got hit on Sunday and brought them arnica cream on Monday and when I woke the next morning and washed my face I noticed the cream was working. No lie people see results and over night but I suppose it depends on how deep the bruise is mines was kinda light not that deep. but yes it worked for me and I hope it will for sure you... peace and blessings ppl”
“I formed substantiative keloids across my chest, shoulders and back. Multiple steroid injections made them grow worse. High potency Arnica extract reversed inflammation and shrunk/flattened all growths. I was also given arnica pills prior to major abdominal surgery in hospital by the surgeon ( in Canada) and it prevented healing complications and no excess scar formation. You have to try arnica to help your keloid scars ”
“This cream was used in my Doc's office after an outpatient procedure for varicose veins..Works well to reduce bruising if used immediately after injury. However, after reading here about side effects with blood thinners, I will cut down on use...”
“I have tried all pain killers for my neuropathy. This is a God send. The first time I tried it, it worked and decreased my pain by at least 50%. Will continue to use it.”
“I have connective tissue disease and quite a bit of muscle pain. I used the Arnica gel and I'm almost afraid it's my imagination but the relief is unbelievable!”
