Top Homeopathic Remedies for Olympic Athletes & Weekend Warriors :)

Watching the 2012 Olympics in London, reminds us of several common themes. The Olympics show us that nations can come together in the spirit of competition and sportsmanship, that our desire to play and compete is a human characteristic shared around the world; that while flags, politics and cultures can be very different, we're united by the games and sports we like to play. Equally important, the Olympics inspire by showing us the great things Olympic Athletes are capable of with training, hard work and dedication. 

Homeopathic remedies are perfectly suited for Olympic Athletes because they work with the body and not against it, they don't mask symptoms, but instead, support them as a healing response; and most importantly, homeopathic remedies are made from *small, but highly refined quantities
of natural substances so they do not enhance or hinder performance un-naturally the way some conventional medications can and they do not alter drug tests at all. 

While we all can enjoy watching the 2012 Olympics and admire the superior training and athletic abilities of the Olympic Athletes, we don't need to be an Olympic Athlete to benefit from homeopathic remedies.  Whether we train 2 days a week or everyday, we're bound to get similar aches and pains.  Here's a short list of homeopathic remedies to help you maintain your own "olympic training" program. :)

Muscular Tissue I: Dr. Luyties designed this A - Z remedy for muscular relief and repair. Muscles are fascinating.

These classic combinations make it easy to give tissues exactly what they need to solve a problem or strengthen a weakness.
