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 the various organ systems. It works according to the principle of `like cures 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: Bromium acts on the glandular and lymphatic systems to relieve overheating and profuse perspiration associated with overweight by improving waste product drainage. Calcarea carbonica acts especially on impaired nutrition to improve glandular, bone and skin function and counteract strong dietary cravings in people with a tendency to overweight. Calcarea fluorica is a tissue remedy indicated for impaired nutrition and to tone the elasticity of body tissues. Pilocarpus jaborandi is a powerful glandular stimulant which primarily regulates thyroid function and curtails excessive perspiration. Spongia tosta is indicated for lax tissue fibre and overwhelming hunger. Thyroid remedy supports the function of the thyroid gland and regulates the strong desire for sweet treats associated with obesity. Indications: This is a homoeopathic medicine which assists in speeding up metabolism, overcoming digestive slowness, promoting the absorption and assimilation of minerals and maintaining healthy digestion. Struma 2 acts as a slimming aid which also reduces craving for sugar, reduces adiposity and treats the associated excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis). Assists in excretion of excess fluid.

Dosage: dissolve 2 tablets in mouth 3 times daily. Dosage and directions for use: Dissolve two tablets in the mouth three times daily. 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 (eg 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.
I am hypothyroid and have been subjected to a ridiculously slow metabolism since being diagnosed with this condition. My doctor put me on Eltroxin which is a thyroid hormone which helped ease my symptoms. The weight gain remained and so did the mindless eating. I have been using these for 5 weeks now. I take one a day and I look and feel great! I'm exercising again as I have more energy no more relying on sugary treats for this, which didn't last anyway as I would be tired and sleepy before doing anything anyway. A faster metabolism means your body is ready to burn fat for energy and not store it out of sluggishness. The sugar cravings are gone!! I still enjoy a treat when I can, but I'm no longer thinking about my next box of chocolates when I've just had one. These are a good place to begin your weight management journey. I hope to write another review once I have completed the entire 150 tblts.
