Hi kate

I was told to take them as they help with swelling and bruising. You can get them from holland and barrett, they cost about £5. Hope that helps. x


4 times

by: mum2daisy

hi the ones i have say to take them every 2 hours the 1st day for 6 doses then 4 times every day after that for 1 week.
they are ment for swelling brusing and help muscles to relax i think. xx

Just remember not to touch them as the sugar pill is just the carrier and the anica is the coating. If you touch it, the arnica comes off on your hand. Simply pop the pill onto a tea spoon or into the cap and then drop it under your tongue.
And remember not to eat or drink for 15 minutes before or after you take your pill. Which is a right pain in the butt when you're taking your first 6 doses!!

Happy Healing. xx


Hypericum and calendular

by: raspberryboo

Are others you can take. Calendular helps you heal quickly and hypericum helps nerve damage. I took this when I had neuralgia in my face and within hours the pain had gone! xx
