Shock and bruises
A placebo for Shocks and benign bruises?
Your child bumps, tears come and you look for a way to relieve his suffering. The effect of a placebo treatment helps reducing the subjective repercussions of bruises.
Right after a shock, except local cold application, no treatment has shown any benefic effect on the consequences of benign bruises. (Homeopathic arnica: just a placebo. Prescrire Int. 2001 Oct; 10(55):156.)
A bruise never lasts long but can still be painful.
In general, two weeks are necessary for a complete resorption. Meanwhile, we observe some swelling, but it is mostly the modification of its color that defines its specificity and its evolution phase.
Right after the shock, the zone starts to swell and becomes red and sensitive. The next day, it turns black. Later, it turns purple to blue, then, after about a week, it turns greenish due to the degradation of hemoglobin releasing biliverdin. It then becomes yellow due to the bilirubin. Finally after 20 to 25 days, the bruise completely disappears without a trace.
PANACEUM® Shock for benign bruises
As a placebo, PANACEUM® Shock helps reducing the subjective repercussions of bruises.
Placebo effect has an impact, not only on the person taking the granules, but also on the person who’s giving them.
PANACEUM® Shock is therefore useful, not only for the child who got hurt, but for the parent taking care of them. We could talk about a proxy or shared placebo effect. PANACEUM® Shock shows a symptomatic effect on the painful perception and the worry generated by the consequences of a shock. It doesn’t exempt one from seeking medical advice as soon as a bruise presents any sign of severity and/or there might be a sign of a fracture.
