Homeopathy treatment for Shock

Description

Shock is inadequate circulation of blood and oxygen to organs or tissues because of blood loss or dehydration, weak action of the heart, or dilation of the peripheral blood vessels.

Septic shock comes from bacterial infection. Anaphylactic shock comes from allergic reactions. Electric shock comes from exposure to live electric current or lightning.

Symptoms

The person is lethargic, sleepy, and confused. Hands and feet are clammy and pale or blue. The pulse and breathing are rapid and weak. In septic shock, fever and chills are usually present, Symptoms of anaphylactic shock include agitation, flushing, heart palpitations, numbness, itching, difficulty breathing, hives, swelling, coughing, and sneezing followed by the general symptoms of shock. Electric shock may cause severe muscle contractions, loss of consciousness, heart palpitations or heart failure, and cessation of breathing; burns may also occur.

Complications

Shock is a medical emergency and can lead rapidly to death. Apply first-aid measures immediately and call 911 for emergency medical aid. Keep the person warm, raise his or her legs slightly, stop any blood loss with direct pressure if possible, check the person's airway and breathing, and give CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) if necessary. Do not give anything by mouth that must be swallowed. (Homeopathic medicines may be dissolved in a small amount of water; a few drops on the tongue are sufficient for a dose.) Turn the head to allow the person to vomit if needed. Hospitalization is strongly recommended as intravenous fluids, drugs, or surgery may be needed depending on the cause of the shock.

Look

Is the person breathing? Is the chest rising and falling?

Is the breathing rapid and weak?

What color is the person's face? Lips? Nails? Is there any paleness or blueness?

Is the person sweating? Are hands and feet clammy?

Is the pulse rapid and weak?

Look around to observe the circumstances.

Pointers for Finding the Homeopathic Medicine

Give Aconite for shock from fright, panic, or emotional causes.

·         Arnica is very useful for shock from traumatic injuries and blood loss.

·         Camphora is used for people who are extremely cold and worse from cold, but who paradoxically want cold drinks and to be uncovered.

·         Carbo vegetabilis is the best medicine for acute shock when the person feels short of breath and wants to be fanned and cooled off.

·         Carbolic acid is used in anaphylactic shock, especially from a bee sting.

·         China is very good for shock from loss of bodily fluids, as in dehydration and blood loss.

·         Veratrum album is good for shock after excessive vomiting, diarrhea, or blood loss.

Dosage

·         Use higher potencies (200X, 200C, 1M) if available; these generally need to be given only once, but may be repeated whenever symptoms return with intensity in an emergency.

·         If high potencies are unavailable, give three pellets of 30C every five minutes until you see improvement.

·         If there is no improvement after two to three doses) give a different medicine.

·         After you first notice improvement, give another dose only if symptoms begin to return.

·         Lower potencies (6X, 6C, 30X) may need to be given every few minutes until the crisis has passed.

What to Expect from Homeopathic Self-Care

 

Homeopathic medicines can reverse shock in minutes if blood loss can be stopped and the heart still beats. Do not hesitate to give the correct medicine if you know what it is. If you cannot tell which is the correct medicine, give Arnica or Carbo vegetabilis.
