Thought I’d let you know why my blog activity has been quiet for the past week. My gorgeous youngest son, Jack, whilst playing tiggy (tag), broke his collar bone and fractured his shoulder. The pain was not nice and the lack of sleep for days left me in zombie land. The joys of motherhood.
My youngest son Jack
Everything is fine, after 5 days he is well on his way to a speedy recovery. I have been treating him holistically and thought I would share what I have been doing as broken bones are quite common problem in both the young and old.
Holistic Healing of Broken Bones:
Even though I am not a naturopath I have built my knowledge by visiting many natural practitioners over the past 20 years, I have great friends who are practitioners in the alternate medicine field and often chat to naturopaths at our local health food stores. The following suggestions are not meant as medical advice but simply what I have been doing personally to heal my son naturally.
1: Emergency essence:
This is the very first thing I do anytime there is upset or trauma. It removes the shock from the physical and emotional energy fields of the body. Emergency essence is similar to rescue remedy except its made from Australian Bush flower essences. I continued giving the essence to Jack every half an hour until he was settled.
2: Arnica a must for internal bruising:
This was the first homeopathic remedy I ever used. Its fabulous for the quick healing of internal bruising. Great if you have just given birth and perfect for my boys after a rough and tough ruby game. I only used arnica for the first few days.
3: Nutrition for the muscle and bone:
I have a powder drink which I buy from our local health food store and use for my boys before and after a sports game. Its a blend of magnesium, calcium and potassium. 50% of the total magnesium found in the body is in the bone. Magnesium is also known as an anti stress mineral and helps with muscle recover. I will continue giving Jack two glasses of this mineral drink for a couple of weeks.
When my son is asleep at night I place my hands over his broken bones and ask for energy to flow into his body and support the healing process. As soon as I start reiki I usually feel a heat flow from the palm of my hands.
5: Comfrey ointment:
Comfrey is rich in iron, silica, potash and calcium. In the alternate medicine field it is known for its teeth and bone building properties. It’s nick name is the bone knitter. Comfrey is always applied externally. If I was very clever I would be growing it in my garden but failing that I buy it in ointment form from our local health food store.
6: Homeopathic drops for bones:
My good friend Butterfly who is a homeopath suggested calc phos. Calc phos is made from the mineral salt found in bone and teeth. I haven’t yet started my son on this as I have run out. I’ll be buying some today in either pill or liquid form.
7: Realignment of the body:
After the bones have healed I will be taking my son to a bowen therapist who will correct any misalignment in the body. This is just to double check that nothing is healing in the wrong place and that the hips, spine and muscles are back where they should be be.
