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 ‘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 homoeopathically potentized strains of influenza in this medicine stimulate the immune system to prevent and treat attacks of influenza and the associated symptoms including sore throat, catarrh of the respiratory tract, cough, characteristic muscular pain throughout the body, chills, headaches and fever.
