Sports Injury and Homeopathy

Practical experience confirms that homeopathy can provide successful treatment for sports injuries. It has been my experience; the experience of large numbers of sports-people. And it is being used increasingly by professional sports organisations.

Uta Mittelstadt has done a theses on the subject at the University of Central Lancashire, and she has published this on the internet, at

This is her conclusion.
"The controversy remains. The nonpareil cannot be measured using clinical studies, but experience in practice confirms with successful treatments what studies and trials have largely not verified. Professional athletes are setting the example. They seek a holistic treatment which swiftly and gently treats their injuries and enhances their performance. It stands without question that the physique is influenced by the psyche and often “the difference between winning and losing is the champion´s mental clarity and emotional resilience”. With homeopathy there is a tool that sees this connection and takes into account the patients individual holistic constitution. “Mens sana in corpora sano – a healthy spirit rests in a healthy body” and vice versa!

It is an interesting conclusion because it highlight the problem some people have with homeopathy; that it is not 'proven' by clinical studies. Yet as sports people will tell you, and what every patient should remind themselves about, it that getting better is what is important, not 'clinical studies' that prove that it will get you better.

If clinical studies do not confirm that homeopathy work with sports injuries, when people who use homeopathy can vouch for its efficacy, this is a problem for clinical studies - not homeopathy!

The earth was still round, and revolved around the sun, 
long before 'science' proved that this was so!

Anyone involved in sporting activity, who wants to minimise the time they spend recuperating from injury, should certainly consult with a homeopath. Homoepathy works. Science will have to catch up on that fact, sooner or later - and undoubtedly will.
