One area that homeopathy specializes in is first aid. In this case, bleeding is a first aid-worthy problem. Anything and everything that pricks, slices, cuts, punctures, or rips can cause us to bleed. This story presents six homeopathic remedies you might not have considered.
(Of course, this is all for minor cases of bleeding, not for any situations where considerable amounts of blood have been lost, which require emergency hospital care.)
A typical member of any homeopathic emergency kit, Aconite is useful for when anxiety, fear, fever, and/or restlessness accompanies the bleeding. The blood is particularly bright and red.
2. Arnica Montana
This is intended to stop minor bleeding both internally and externally It is one of homeopathy’s most-used treatments for bruises, traumas, injuries, and that sort of thing. As a matter of fact if shock and trauma accompany your bleeding wounds, along with possibly bruising, Arnica is a good option. It’s good for nosebleeds that flow from some kind of blow to the nose, or from blowing too hard.
3. Hamamelis Virginica
Also known as witch hazel, Hamamelis is a very effective herb with which to plug hemorrhages and stop bleeding. It is best for wounds or cuts that are bleeding quite a bit. It is particularly useful for nosebleeds. It’s advisable to try Arnica first, and if it fails to stop the flow, try Hamamelis.
