Here’s the latest installment of “homeopathy saves the day” at my house.
My 12 year old daughter, Unstoppable…
Excuse me, I hate to interrupt, but, is that her real name?
No, it’s a name I made up. You aren’t going to say anything about it, are you?
Me? Say something about your daughter’s name? Why would I do that?
Uhh…no reason…I’ll just go on then, shall I?
OK…. As I was saying, my 12 year old daughter, Unstoppable, injured her left foot the other day while trying to step on a spinning coin.
What??? Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute! Time out! I’m changing her name to “Unbelievable”! Did you just say that your daughter injured her foot trying to step on a spinning coin?
This is the daughter that plays soccer?
I just did a whole article on sports injuries, for your daughter’s sake, and she winds up injuring herself indoors on a spinning coin?
Can you possibly explain this?
Is there any more to this story or does it end here?
Oh, no, there’s much more!
Then do go on–I guess it can only get better!
It will, I assure you! She said that the outside edge of her foot hurt, especially when she walked. Unfortunately, she had soccer games to play later that day. If you’ve been following her previous antics in other articles here, you’ll know that she rarely complains of pain and frequently ignores it!
Fast-forward to later that evening and after playing in the first game. She seems okay and mentions that her foot hurts a bit but it’s not a problem. During the first half of the second game, however, it’s obvious her foot hurts. She’s limping and cringing as she runs! Known for her speed and aggressive play, it’s noticibly absent at this point. She finishes out the game still limping.
By the time we return home later that evening, she’s limping badly and complaining of much pain!
I immediately gave Arnica 200c and she went to bed.
The next morning the pain was worse! She explained that it hurt alot when she walked and was worse when she turned it on the outside edge. The only other complaint was that her foot felt weak.
I went through Murphy’s repertory then his Homeopathic Remedy Guide and I gave a total of 3 doses of___________ 30c throughout the day.
By the time she went to her game in the afternoon, she had No Pain at all and played well!
Elaine- I have to tell you that this case was amazing!! By the time we left in the middle of the afternoon for her game, Unstoppable…
…had no pain whatsoever- none! She played with her “second team” on this massive astro-turf field which is not her normal sized field; so, she ran and ran and ran on her once-injured foot! The second team is an older team so her opponents were also older (bigger!) she scored ALL the goals for her team (3 of them) and the coach took her out only twice! I kept watching her and she’d give me the “thumbs up” sign to say she was OK. Oh, she was knocked around (like to the ground!) a few times too. I know you don’t “get” the whole soccer thing but it was pretty cool!
Hey, I played soccer! What I don’t get is this new reckless teenage fad of coin-spinning! Be on the look-out for this one, parents!
