The right remedy for the job

Workers
Have you ever thought of how different jobs need different remedies?

Carpenters, for example, are prone to whacking their thumbs with hammers or taking a blow from beams of wood. They could certainly do with a bottle of Arnica montana (Arn.) in their first aid kit as its ability to treat bruising and soft tissue damage is legendary.

Chefs would also be wise to keep some homeopathic Cantharis (Canth.) on hand to reduce the pain and blistering of burns while typists, prone to repetitive strain problems, would benefit from a dose or two of Ruta graveolens (Ruta.) which is a leading remedy for tendon strain.

But it’s not just these occupations that have a need for homeopathy. Let’s match some more remedies to other types of work to see how homeopathy can help.
