Bruises

  • Aromatherapy: cypress, combine 1 drop of chamomile with 2 tsp. of ice cold water—soak a cotton pad and apply to affected area

  • Herbs: witch hazel (topical), arnica tablets or massage tincture of arnica into bruised area; 200–400 mg three times a day of bromelain on an empty stomach

  • Homeopathy: aconite, 1 or 2 doses only over 15 minutes immediately for the "shock" of the injury

  • Hydrotherapy: cold compresses for first 12 hours with occasional breaks to prevent excessive chilling

  • Supplements: 2,000 mg vitamin C three times a day for people who bruise easily; pineapple juice—enzymes speed the rate at which the blood causing the bruise dissolves
