One week ago my 19-year-old daughter Ariana had three wisdom teeth removed, one of them impacted. Wisdom tooth removal is something of a rite of passage for teens these days, especially if they've had braces and don't want their teeth to shift.
I had my own wisdom teeth removed when I was still in naturopathic college, about 27 years ago. At the time we had just learned about Arnica and other homeopathic remedies for use in surgery. I used Arnica 200CH and 1M with great success at the time, suffering very little swelling or discomfort, much to the surprise of a classmate who described quite an ordeal of swelling and pain after her extractions.

“I can’t feel anything”, he shrugged.
“Push up a bit higher. Now, push down towards the chest wall,” I told Dr. F as he was fishing around in my left arm pit.
“Oh there, yes, hmm. Well, I’m not worried about it.”
How many times had I heard those words over the past three years from Dr. F., beginning with a greenish-brown discharge from my left nipple in November of 2007?
