In the Bundesliga, the German football league, 92% of clubs treat their players with homeopathic remedies. In particular complex homeopathic preparations are employed in the treatment of the league professionals. About 76% of clubs use homeopathic combination/complex preparations .
In the professional sports industry where recuperation time is restricted , and players are faced with the constant demand for peak performance, treatment choices are dictated by gentle and rapid therapeutic onset and the absence of adverse effects from medication [3, 4, 5]. Homeopathic remedies meet this demand and are on top of regular benefits, devoid of falling under doping restrictions [1, 2, 6].
