Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

The best homeopathic remedies for strain/ligament injuries are Bellis perennis and Ruta gravis. You can give them both together, about 3xday and you should see improvement very quickly. Haven't had much success with Arnica for those issues, but it all depends.

Most HFS have combination remedies for sprain injuries (consisting of the remedies above and others) and other modalities - might be alot cheaper then buying indiv. remedies and a better option for people who are unexperienced in homeopathy and don't really know how to choose a remedy.

I would also give high doses of VitC and some fishoil for their anti-inflammatory properties.
