Homoeopathic mode of action: Homoeopathy is a system of medicine, built on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and should be allowed to do so. Homoeopathic medicines work energetically to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal by promoting or supporting the functioning of various organ systems. It works according to the principle of likes cure like' such that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person, can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Over the last 300 years, observations, experiments, homoeopathic provings and clinical experience have resulted in the collection of symptoms associated with particular remedies which are recorded in traditional homoeopathic Materia Medica. This medicine has been compiled based on an in-depth knowledge of the tradition and application of homoeopathy. The relevant symptoms from the composite remedy pictures are as follows: Aconitum napellus has an anti-inflammatory action and is indicated for redness, pain and swelling of the upper and lower respiratory mucosa. It should be used at the onset of symptoms for rapid relief. Eucalyptus globulus has an antiseptic and expectorant action and relieves persistent watery mucus discharge from the nose, thick white mucus from the chest and prevents infection in the mucosa. Eupatorium perfoliatum acts on the bronchial mucous membrane to treat chronic, loose cough. Gelsemium sempervirens has a decongestant action and helps relieve post nasal drip, acute bronchitis and excessive respiratory mucus. Hydrastis canadensis acts on the mucous membranes to treat thick, yellow, ropy mucus discharge which causes sore throat. Kalium bichromicum acts on the mucous membranes of the airways to treat snuffles in children, sinus congestion and thick, sticky, stringy discharges with loss of smell. Pulsatilla vulgaris has a wide range of action on the mucous membranes and relieves thick, profuse, bland and yellow mucus in the upper and lower respiratory tract. Sanguinaria nitrica is indicated for acute and chronic mucus production with blocked nose, sore throat and cough especially associated with influenza. Thuja occidentalis treats thick, green nasal mucus which may be related to ill effects of vaccination and toxic build-up in the lymphatic system. Indications: This is a homoeopathic medicine which assists in soothing the respiratory mucosa for treatment of nasal catarrh, blocked nose, coryza, post nasal drip, tonsillitis, laryngitis, sneezing and catarrh associated with colds and influenza. Assists in the treatment of prediagnosed pharyngitis. This medicine is an adjuvant for treatment of pharyngitis and may be used to complement existing medication for the treatment of this condition. To be sure that serious conditions do not persist undetected, please ensure that pharyngitis is prediagnosed by a suitably qualified practitioner.

Dosage and directions for use: Take ten drops directly on the tongue or diluted in a little water three times daily. May be taken one to two hourly in acute cases while symptoms are severe. Dilute with water for infants and leave to stand for a short time before administering. Reduce dosage with improvement of symptoms. As absorption of homoeopathic medicines occurs mainly through the mucous membrane of the mouth, it is desirable to hold the medicine in the mouth for a short period and for the mouth to be free of any other tastes (toothpaste, peppermint, etc.) when taking the medicine. Avoid taking this medicine within half an hour of strong coffee, chocolate, camphor or aromatic substances which may reduce the efficacy of the homoeopathic components.
