labor day homeopathy

Labor Day seems to have more meaning attached to it than most national holidays.

To some, it means the end of summer. To others, it means the beginning of school, while a certain number of us would never be caught wearing white after it. For the most frugal among us, it is the cheapest day to buy a refrigerator.

In the U.S., the Department of Labor defines Labor Day as a “yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

I also regard it as a time to remember the pain that heavy labor can cause. Sore muscles and achy joints can be a hefty price to pay for hard work. That’s why Labor Day reminds me of Arnica montana 200, my go-to medicine for pain experienced by those who do heavy, manual labor. It may be repeated every few hours but, of course, stopped once the pain has ceased.

There are other medicines that may be considered or even alternated with this remedy, such as Rhus tox, Hypericum, Ruta or Symphytum, but everyone should at least know about Arnica montana to start.

 And speaking of heavy labor, Arnica 200 is also a perfect choice for the pain associated with childbirth! In my experience, women have reported excellent results when they take Arnica both during and after labor.

I personally used it at the onset and moments after for the births of my own children. It helps to reduce after-birth pains and minimizes bleeding. I repeated it every hour or so after for a few more doses until the pain was a barely noticeable.

No matter what Labor Day means to you, I hope that you have a wonderful one enjoying time with your family and loved ones.

 Tomorrow — we get back to work!



I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

    Yup I used it after birth. Great stuff. Kid is 5 now. Back then it was the only homeopathy I knew and I loved it. Now I know a ton more

  2. Arnica was wonderful after all 5 of my births, especially the twins! But Joette what I’m most thankful this labor day is you. Your course allergic saved my daughters life this weekend, and I can never thank you enough for all the hours you and your team have labored to put together all the materials you produce to educate mothers and others.
    We have zero history of anaphylaxis in any of our children, I admit I wasn’t as interested in that info, I enrolled to uproot behavior problems.
    But it’s been so busy on our small farm this season, that I got caught up in town much longer than expected.
    My daughter ate a snack with only 5 ingredient, she had never had before and then was in the throws of Anaphylaxis after we arrived home. We live 45 min from town from a hospital, even an ambulance would take 12 min to arrive.
    I grabbed my 200 kit that I bought from you as soon as I found you and began the protocol. I made the call to head to the ER and kept dosing all the way there. She was doing much better when we arrived, and even the ER docs acknowledged the medicine had acted, because even though she had all the danger signs, she was stable.

      Thanks for your kind words but the thanks goes to Dr. Samual Hahnmann and Drs. Banerji.

    I took arnica montana 200 and rhus tox with me when I walked the Camino de Santiago a couple of months ago. I never had a problem with sore muscles even though the country side was much rougher and steeper (in places) than what I had trained on. Good stuff.

    I homebirthed my twins on Labor Day three years ago – a “labor” day I’ll never forget! Thanks Joette for another fun post and hooray for Arnica!

      Labor, times 3! Great story.

  5. In India (where we use British English), ‘Labor’ means a process of giving birth to a child, and ‘Labour’ is Work.

      I prefer your precise differential.
