ARNICA MONTANA: HOW DOES IT WORK?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Bruising and swelling may result from both surgical and non-surgical treatments. Frequently, how we manage the period before and after the procedure will have an impact on the onset or extent of each. Arnica Montana has often been recommended as a homeopathic remedy to reduce the likelihood of bruising and swelling. Knowing how it is believed to work will help you in deciding whether to use it when you book your next procedure.

An inflammatory reaction is produced by the body when it senses an “injury” and can result from a needle or a knife. This starts a cascade of reactions that includes the presence of an increased amount of blood in the area of treatment resulting in excessive stretching of the walls of small vessels such as capillaries. This stretching enables the release of white blood cells and fluid from the space within the blood vessels into the surrounding tissue between cells resulting in swelling. Arnica Montana is felt to produce an increase in the rate of blood flow through the capillaries in the affected region producing a more rapid resorption of fluid thereby reducing both swelling and bruising.
