When soccer superstar David Beckham broke a bone in his foot just before the 2002 World Cup, he was devastated; and so were the English soccer fans. The first World Cup game was only 50 days away and chances of him playing were virtually zero.
Beckham was told that his injury, a broken metatarsal bone, would take between four to six weeks to heal, with another two to four weeks needed for rehabilitation.
He reportedly also is a great fan of arnica, which is a well-known remedy to reduce and relieve pain, bruising and inflammation. Beckham's wife, Victoria, also uses homeopathic medicines and is said to have relied on it heavily during her third pregnancy to combat morning sickness.
