I was hurt in an auto accident. I broke both legs above the knees, have had plates and screws inserted, lost my left knee cap and crushed bones in my right ankle.
Recently I had surgery to fuse my ankle. Is there a natural medicine I can take for swelling and pain? I have been reading about bromelain and gingerroot. Can you give me some suggestions? Thank you.
Yes, bromelain and ginger are decent choices. Here are some further suggestions for acute swelling and soreness from an injury:
Arnica: 30 c. (homeopathic ), 2 pellets 3 times a day Bromelain: 250 mg. between meals 3 times a day Flax/Borage oil: 3 caps, 2 to 3 times a day with meals Curcuma (Tumeric): 3 – 6 caps a day (read label on product)
Curcuma is my choice over gingerroot.
