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: Aloe ferox acts on the gastrointestinal, the portal circulatory and lymphatic systems to relieve abdominal discomfort and distension. For treatment of watery stools with rectal pain, mucus in the stools and weakness of the anal sphincter. Arsenicum album has broad action on all body systems and helps treat dehydration from dark offensive dysenteric stools often following food poisoning. It helps treat the serious effects of diarrhoea. Cinchona succirubra is indicated for copious undigested, yellow, frothy stools with flatulence that may lead to dehydration. Croton tiglium is indicated for copious watery stools that are passed forcefully. Ferrum phosphoricum has anti-inflammatory and tissue strengthening properties and treats watery stools that may contain blood and be associated with fever. Kalium muriaticum acts on the digestive mucosa to treat light-coloured diarrhoea after fatty foods. Matricaria recutita (chamomilla) is indicated for hot, green, slimy or watery stools with abdominal colic. Podophyllum peltatum acts on the small intestine, liver and rectum to treat chronic diarrhoea with painful abdominal distension and possible rectal prolapse. Solanum dulcamara is indicated for acute pain in the lower abdomen. Indications: This is a homoeopathic medicine which assists in supporting the function of the digestive system and soothing the digestive mucosa for treatment of diarrhoea, colic, digestive upsets, flatulence and mild food poisoning. Allows drainage of toxins through the intestine while checking the loss of vital fluids. Also assists in the treatment of prediagnosed colitis and enteritis. This medicine is an adjuvant for treatment of colitis and enteritis and may be used to complement existing medication for the treatment of these conditions. To be sure that serious conditions do not persist undetected, please ensure that colitis and enteritis are prediagnosed by a suitably qualified practitioner. Tel: (012) 813 9400. www.natura.co.za.
