From Injury to Gold Medalist with Homeopathy

Usain Bolt had a grade one hamstring tear less than one month prior to his competing in the August Olympic competition in Rio! It seems miraculous, right? Yet, with the healing abilities of homeopathy, acupuncture and herbs Usain achieved Olympic gold status three times! Usain Bolt has been using homeopathy, acupuncture and herbs for his health since he was 16 years old. He was born with scoliosis, making him more prone to injuries as a runner. A German homeopath kept putting him back on track after every injury.

How can homeopathics help the body to repair itself so quickly in trauma? An exact homeopathic remedy match is the key factor in a speedy recovery.

Homeopathic remedies not only match each person’s expression of symptoms, like pain, inflammation, swelling, bone breakage, tissue tears or trauma, but also the intensity and the pace of the symptoms themselves. You may describe it as a ripping pain, a dull ache, a pulling sensation, or a shooting zing, for example. You might say that the pain comes and goes or has a pounding effect, better with heat or cold, movement or still. Each person gives a very detailed individualized description of their symptoms. We listen. We match.

How specifically did Usain experience his hamstring tear? His homeopath listened closely as he spoke with his body gestures, sensations, pace, intensity and energetic tone as he described his pain to determine the perfect homeopathic match. Homeopathy matches to the unique person rather than the disease, taking in not only what is said but how it is said or what is left out. Homeopathy does not use a disease label like ‘Hamstring Tear Remedy’. While Usain might have been prescribed Arnica Montana for his hamstring tear, you might have been prescribed Hamamelis or Bellis Perrenis for a similar hamstring tear depending on your description of symptoms. Homeopathic prescriptions are not label driven.

Your strength of constitution and resilience is also a strong factor in the speed of your healing trajectory. Usain’s body is vibrant, moving and active. That is one good reason he healed so quickly. He utilizes and conserves energy efficiently. By his running every day he is discharging toxins and waste products that build up with use. He sweats out heat and toxins. He breathes out carbon dioxide. He absorbs lactic acid to dispose of it through the blood stream’s exchange. He eats healthy green vegetables and organic meats to help enhance repair. He sleeps deeply. He gets sunshine and free flowing air. He does not have to detoxify the chemical tradeoffs of prescription drugs in his liver. So for Usain with his long term choice for natural health solutions he is reaping the golden rewards with three gold medals.

We may not be in the same top physical shape as Usain Bolt, but homeopathic remedies can still help us to repair much faster in trauma. In acute trauma it is recommended to get help with a personalized natural solution with the assistance of a trained homeopath or naturopath like myself.
