Athletic Performance (Homeopathy)

Remedy Options

Primary Remedies

Arnica montana

This remedy is available in topical forms (gel, cream and ointment), as well as in pellet form for general action.

Hypericum perforatum

This is a medicine for trauma affecting the nerve endings, such as wounds or crushed fingers, and causing intense pain throbbing alongside the nerve pathway.

Rhus toxicodendron

This homeopathic medicine is used for muscle aches and stiffness caused by strenuous efforts, and relieved by slowly moving the affected limbs. It is especially useful during physical therapy, when the pain is more intense at the beginning of the session.

Ruta graveolens

This relieves sprains and strain from trauma or overexertion, affecting ligaments and tendons.

Other Remedies

Arnica montana

Arnica Montana is taken internally to relieve pain, bruising and swelling caused by trauma, overexertion or surgery.

Bellis perennis

This remedy is often indicated for injuries resulting from collisions, falls, and twisting or wrenching motions that occur in active sports. It is especially indicated for bruising injuries involving the abdomen, trunk, and pelvis or deeper body areas. Bellis perennis may also be given for bruising, sprains, or strains when Arnica has been tried without significant result. Aggravation from soaking, or from wet applications, is another indication for this remedy.

Ledum palustre

This is a homeopathic medicine that relieves bruising around the eyes. It is usually associated with Arnica.

Sarcolactic acid

This remedy is sometimes used to ease muscular soreness and fatigue caused by overexertion. It may also help to relieve the cramps or spasms that occur after intense exercise.

Dosage

Homeopathy Dosage Directions

Select the medicine that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

Many homeopathic physicians suggest that medicines be used as follows: Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the medicine work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient. If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different medicine.
