A study shows that, 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.
Part of winning any championship is dealing with injuries - or avoiding them in the first place.
A study shows that the German national team places unusual trust in natural healing over traditional medicine.
The study published on how German soccer docs treat aches and pains has revealed that Germany's faith is in homeopathy.
The study, carried out by researchers from Koblenz, found that almost all (92%) all of the doctors at German football league teams prescribe homeopathic cures.
The lead researcher, Peter Billigmann, when interviewed by Der Spiegel, said,
"The success stories are impressive .....homeopathic substances don't have any side effects, and we're on the safe side where doping is concerned."
The study also found that 60% of the team doctors also prescribed acupuncture.
