Arnicare in Vein Health News




Cancers are generally treated with very aggressive medications that also cause a lot of side effects. There is not much that conventional medicines can do to help the patients tolerate their treatments. This is a situation where homeopathic medicines are quite successful at making life easier for those who are not only undergoing a serious illness but also harsh treatments. Here are some  suggestions that are worth considering and discussing with oncologists or primary care physicians:

Homeopathic protocol to reduce nausea induced by chemotherapy

  • Cocculus Indicus 30C
  • Tabacum 30C
  • Petroleum 30C
  • Nux vomica 30C

Five pellets every hour when nausea is intense, then 3 times a day. Those medicines can be taken together.


Homeopathic protocol for radiotherapy

According to the symptoms induced by the radiations, choose from those medicines, and combine them if necessary: 5 pellets after each session

  • Radium bromatum 9C: for burns and low-back pain
  • Belladonna 9C: for burning redness
  • Apis 15C: for burning sensation that is improved by cold applications
  • Fluoricum acidum 9C: for trophic lesions of the skin


And topically, use Calendula cream, ointment or lotion: it contains the extract of the Garden Marigold that has a direct action on skin regeneration.


  • Helps prevent radiation dermatitis. Soothes and restores irradiated skin by promoting the formation of granulation tissue, an important step in the healing of wounds.
  • In addition, the terpenes, flavones, and alkaloids present in the calendula’s essential oil have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects.

In my interview with Doctor Anne Meyer, MD we learned that she is an expert in pain medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation. Dr Meyer has a practice in Los Angeles. I am so glad she was able to take the time to be on Here’s To Your Health last Tuesday to talk about her approach to health. I also encourage you to visit her beautiful website www.aromatherapydoctor.com.




Yesterday on Here’s to Your Health, I invited my friend Dr Maria Sulindro, MD to speak about her practice in Pasadena, CA. Dr Maria completed her residency program at UCLA in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and then became an anti-aging specialist. Anti-aging is a fascinating field that concerns all of us as she explains in her interview. I enjoyed discussing her personal story and how she addresses many health conditions.

Now days there is a lot of controversy about vaccines. I am from another time and another place where we did not think twice about it and thought vaccines were such an advanced tool to protect us against dangerous pathogens that could potentially kill us otherwise. It is also true that children would only get a few major vaccines. Most of us would go through childhood getting sick from time to time (with measles, mumps, rubella and so on) and building up our immunity without much worrying from parents, doctors or school teachers. Now that I think about it, it was not so bad to miss school and to be pampered at home! Well, now things have changed and everybody has a different opinion about immunization. There are also concerns about the preservatives and other substances that are injected along with the vaccines. If you are getting your child vaccinated, here is what you can do to limit the side effects:

After any vaccine, give your child five sublingual pellets of Thuja 9C morning and evening for five to 10 days (10 days if there is a history of bad reactions in the family, especially among siblings). This is to help protect the child from the rare post vaccination syndrome (that is responsible for various serious chronic health issues).

Also, for the immediate local reaction (swelling, edema, pain, redness and burning sensation), use 5 pellets of Apis melifica 30C and five pellets of Belladonna 9C every 15 minutes the first hour following the injection, and then every two hours as long as needed.

I recommend this protocol to adults as well.

On the Gary Garver show

Last Friday, January 17th, I was invited on the Gary Garver show. Josh Lane, from Here’s to Your Health introduced me to Gary and his co-host Jigga Jones, and we all spent a very pleasant and fun hour together on the radio! Gary gave me a great opportunity to talk about homeopathy and several of Boiron medicines, such as Oscillococcinum, Arnicare, Quietude and Calendula. You can listen to it here.
