We can add Vipera to our differential of remedies for injuries that do not heal. For example, I gave Vipera to a young woman who suffered a bad puncture wound that became infected and was quite painful, worse hanging down. Vipera also comes to mind when an injury cannot heal because of damaged blood vessels which limit circulation to the part in question. I once treated an older diabetic patient who had two toes amputated. The wound would not heal and the man went into a delirious state from the pain, the shock, the diabetes, and the pain killers. All this was quickly reversed with Vipera and his foot went on to heal nicely.
