Homeopathy and Sports Injuries

All athletes from the child running around a field at 6 years of age to the finely tuned body of a professional footballer will suffer injury at one time or another.  Homeopathy can play an important role in the road to recovery.  A  Homeopathic physician can shorten the duration of any injury to one-third of its projected length.  By understanding the basics, you will be able to take more responsibility for your own health.

Homeopathic remedies offer a valuable resource in any training timetable.  The remedies have no toxic side effects, will not show up in any drug tests and will support your body’s best defences.  The Homeopathic Remedy Kit will become another member of your team.

Top German soccer clubs and the National German soccer team use Homeopathy on a regular basis. An article in The Complementary Medical Association discuses a study that shows, not only do most doctors who work for football teams in the top two German football leagues (Bundesliga 1 and 2) use homeopathic remedies to keep their players healthy and fit – so does the German national football team.

“The success stories are impressive,” said Peter Billigmann, a sports doctor and the head of the Koblenz Institute for Performance Diagnostics and Sports Medicine that carried out the study, in an interview with the Spiegel news magazine. “Homeopathic substances don’t have any side effects, and we’re on the safe side where doping is concerned.”

Dr Jean Marcel Ferret specialises in sports medicine, he was the doctor for the French National Soccer Team from 1993 to 2004, during which time they won the World Cup in 1998 and the European championship two years later.

“I am a doctor that uses homeopathy and not a homeopath. I am open to all techniques. I consider that there is only one medicine comprising various techniques. We doctors have to know how to use the entire arsenal. As a sports doctor, I quickly discovered that except for anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants, I was very limited in the care of athletes. I therefore tried to find something else. I began to use homeopathy, first occasionally, and then more and more.

At first, the athletes were surprised and some of them even wary. So I explained how and why homeopathy acts. The greatest value in sports? Its speed of action. I can use it directly on the soccer field, within seconds of the trauma, and note the results almost immediately. For example, in traumatology with Arnica, and without any adverse reactions on the stomach or liver. I also use homeopathy to treat ORL, stress or dermatology problems.

British Olympic Sprinter James Ellington “Homeopathy offers me a positive and natural way to prevent sporting ailments such as exertion, muscular pain and aching joints, without any residual effects on my performance.  I use remedies such as Ruta grav, which helps treat sprained ligaments, ­Gelsemium for pre-race jitters, Arnica for bruising and Bellis perennis to treat exertion.  They all offer athletes a natural ­alternative to traditional and sometimes harmful medicines.”
