Rhus Toxicodendron and Repetitive Strain Injury

I was reminded again of the importance of this well-know polycrest just a few days ago when my husband came home with a very painful case of repetitive stain. 20 minutes after wrapping his wrist with a cloth bandage and a single dose of Rhus Tox. 6C, he was symptom free!

Originally proved by Dr. Hahnemann himself (the originator of homeopathy) and published in 1833, Rhus Tox. should be in the first aid kit of every person. It can be used to treat many ailments both acute and chronic.

Rhus Tox. is the most commonly indicated remedy for RSI and Carpal Tunnel. It's keynote symptom being pain on initial movement and amelioration (although it may be mild) on continued movement. Other modalities may include, aggravation in cold, wet weather, at night and during sleep. Amelioration may come with warm, dry weather, change of position, warm applications and stretching.

Of course, as with every case of disease it is imperative to select the correct remedy for the individual and Rhus Tox. is not the only homeopathic remedy indicated for RSI. But, in an acute case of RSI where symptoms match the above modalities, a single dose of Rhus Tox. 6C will bring brilliant results! The remedy can be repeated if symptoms return several times a day. 

Although Rhus Tox. 6C can be taken without prescription for minor ailments, if symptoms persist or you are suffering from long-standing chronic pain, please see your homeopath and always consult your family doctor.
