Before winning his three gold medals at the Rio Olympic games in 2016 Usain Bolt traveled to Germany to visit the physician he had been seeing since the age of sixteen. The doctor, Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt helped Bolt to overcome a hamstring tear that had previously forced him to withdraw from the Jamaica National Senior Championships. For the Olympics it was a pelvic issue that Muller-Wohlfahrt enabled Bolt to overcome. Though trained in numerous medical techniques including homeopathy the treatment Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt provided Usain Bolt was incorrectly reported to be homeopathic and falsely characterized as controversial.
Homeopathy involves administration of a dilute substance in accordance with the Law of Similars, using like to cure like. Here, Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt injected a non-homeopathic medicine called Hyalart, extracted from the crest of fowl cocks from the Caribbean, as well as a form of honey.
Connection with homeopathy, ingredients derived from bees
But a connection with homeopathy exists. Contrary to general opinion that conventional medicine and homeopathy are completely opposed, the two approaches can overlap. The principal ingredient of Hyalart for example, the enzyme Hyaluronidase breaks down Hyaluronic acid. It enables fertilization by means of reducing the viscosity of the ovum’s surface (due to the presence of hyaluronan). The presence of hyaluronidase in the acromium of mammalian sperm cells is like a warhead explosive allowing a sperm cell to blast its way into the oocyte (or ovum or egg). What is the relevance of this? Hyaluronic acid is also found in bee venom where it accounts for the inflammatory of effect of a bee sting. The remedy Apis (derived from bee venom) plays a significant part in the treatment of infertility such as due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome where Apis’ anti-inflammatory effect serves to harmonize estrogen/androgen balance.
The Law of Similars accounts for why Apis reduces pain and swelling (when that symptom is better from cool applications). But the crude (non-diluted) and painful effectiveness of bee stings to alleviate conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis is well known.
Bee sting therapy and Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt’s prescription of hyaluronidase-containing Hyalart (and honey) for Usain Bolt’s muscular inflammation are thus plainly kindred.
Homeopathic treatment of Usain Bolt’s scoliosis
Remarkably, the immortal sprinter Bolt was born with curvature of the spine. Again, he credits Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt with enabling him to overcome the condition and rescuing his track and field career. While the details of Muller-Wohlfahrt’s earlier treatments are not public it can be supposed that included would be at least three homeopathic remedies well known for their ability to prompt straightening of the spine. These are:
Calcarea Phosphorica, Calcarea Fluorica, and Silica.
