beware cat bite

Angry Cat

Bridget rescued her cat from a couple of marauding dogs.  When she picked up the panicky cat, he instinctively attacked. He bit deeply through her hand in two places and scratched her badly.  Uh Oh!

Not knowing about homeopathy, she went to the hospital, where she was given antibiotics and sent on her way.  They told her to take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain and swelling.

The following day, Bridget’s hand was red, very sore, swollen and stiff.  The analgesics were not helping.  A  nurse friend handed her two bottles: Hypericum perforatum 200and Arsenicum 200c and she instructed her to take one dose of each within a few minutes of each other.

Half an hour later the pain was all but gone, and the swelling and stiffness greatly subsided.  She found that she needed to take the mixture every 3 hours the first day, but by the 2nd day it was needed only about 2-3 times and the next several days just to be certain, she took it twice daily.

A week later, it appeared that all was well.  Only a slight scar reminded her of the bite, and even the scar disappeared in time.  I would have insisted that the remedy be used for a few more weeks, but Bridget was not a student/client of mine and was on her own.

Nonetheless, Bridget was lucky.  She was in the right place to hear about an option that would shift her away from harmful side effects of over-the-counter analgesics; side effects that have been getting a lot of press lately.

No liver consequences as has been reported and no kidney side effects.  For our friend Bridget, the remedy was more effective than either Tylenol or ibuprofen anyway because it didn’t just relieve pain, but allowed her body to take care of any infection that was likely lurking.

You might say, “She was saved by the antibiotic.”  But over two centuries of homeopathic literature and observation contend that animal bites can be safely addressed with the correct homeopathic remedy alone.

Am I saying that we should not use antibiotics and such?  Not really. But,  I’ll let you in on a little secret.  I so fully trust homeopathy that if this happened to me, I’d forgo the ER and get to my homeopathy medicine cabinet.

I have personally used the above remedies for animal bites that our livestock and pets have sustained and it has worked over the decades every time.  So much for the placebo effect.

Students I’ve taught have also reported case after case of animal bites from cats and dogs decidedly cured with the above strategy.  Additionally, while in Calcutta I observed a woman with an infected Zebu bite that was resolved exclusively with homeopathy.

And these remedies can be used in conjunction with antibiotics, but for me, why bother with antibiotics when I have a protocol that is effective minus the side effects?

Certainly, in circumstances where modern medicine is not available, these remedies could be lifesaving.

The Drs. Banerji use a slightly different method.

It is one of their many protocols that have recently entered the American, Japanese and European medical scene.

Here’s what they say about their  protocol for animal bites:

“Under our system of the Banerji Protcols, and based on our long experience of treating various kinds of animal bites, particularly in Mihijam in India, where there were no other facilities for treating them,  Stramonium 200c and Arsenicum album 200c , given four times a day for one month ,we found to be of immense value in saving lives.”

There you have it.  Homeopathy in the hands of experts and offered to you.

If you find this information useful, please share it.

The only way homeopathy can survive the yellow teeth of the AMA  and big pharma, is grassroots movement of one mother, one family, one person to another.

Cure your family yourself and pass on the good word.

Note:  Arsenicum album 200 and Hypericum 200 are found in the kit we’re presently selling for a Mother’s Day Special. (Great sale price plus my downloadable book and first aid CD transcript )

    Does this work for all kinds of bites? Does it work when poisonous venom is involved?

  3. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

    No, that is the subject of another blog. This method works for non-poisonous, mammmal bites that are not rabid.

  4. Barbara Jones says:

    this is a different problem. Could you tell me what is useful for candida?

    My son bit his nail while he had strep throat. Within a day or so, we noticed that his finger was all swelled up and terrible. Thanks Joette for recommending this remedy (Hypericup Perf + Ars Alb)…it took a couple of months for the nail to fall off and regrow, but all is well without antibiotics. So I think it’s interesting when this remedy works not only for animal bites but also for nasty-kid-nail-biting-that-gets-infected :). And as a bonus, he completely stopped biting his nails because he would rather avoid a repeat of this experience in the future! Two birds, one stone, and that stone was not antibiotics! :)

    Why Arsenicum and not Ledum? Curious.

    • Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Good question. Ledum could also have been used, but I think these are better chosen since they have a long history that has proven itself. As you can see from the difference between what I have used through the the years and that which the Banerjis use, there is often more than one choice that might do the trick. In fact, I’ve used Ledum alone and have found in at least one case to have worked well. But as I recall, it was not infected; only an animal bite was sustained.

    Thank you for posting this! I have had to rescue more than one cat in my time – being a cat person I always have a few around – and yes, bites can be pretty devastating.

  8. Annelise says:

    I will definitely keep this in mind for next time one of our cats gets bitten in a fight!

    By the way, my husband got bitten by a tick a few days ago, apparently this is already a very bad year for ticks… would this remedy be good for tick bites (and for preventing Lyme disease) as well, or do we take a different approach with insects?

  9. Jackie says:

    Is this protocol safe for a pregnant woman who was bitten by a cat?

    • Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      When used correctly, homeopathy is the safest medicine on earth. I used it during my pregnancies, for newborns, for the elderly and infirm. It is the ultimate medicine.

  10. MollyT says:

    For a dog bite that just happened last night Aconite 30 was used first, then Ledum 30 two doses and two doses Ledum the day after so far. Should we switch to one of the above protocols? There doesn’t seem to be any infection so far and doesn’t seem to be swelling. Last night he said it was sore, today he can move that area quite well and just sore if someone touched it. I do have Hypericum and Arsenicum 200, but not Stramonium. What would indicate that I might need to give a dose of that combination or switch to those remedies? How long to take the Ledum if we only need to use that? Should Arsenicum be given to help ward off any infection?
    Thanks so much for all your wonderful information on this website!

      I can’t direct as to what which remedy you ought to be using, but if you’re looking for results aligned with what I discuss, its always better to stay with the protocol.

      An infection would not likely appear within 12 hours.

      In general, for bites and other acutes, we use the remedies for several days until it is clear that the person is out of the woods, followed by a few extra days for good measure.

      The protocols I discuss are relevant to the entire event, including infection.

      When remedies are not acting, that gives us the indication that the choice is incorrect.
