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 homeopathy. The relevant symptoms from the composite remedy pictures are as follows:

Aspidosperma quebracho acts on the respiratory system to increase oxygen uptake and excrete carbonic acid, in so doing relieving dyspnoea and breathlessness, especially on exertion. Aurum metallicum acts on the cardiovascular system to relieve high blood pressure, irregular pulse and associated difficult breathing especially at night. Cephaelis acuminata relieves constriction in the chest with asthmatic cough, dyspnoea, wheezing, haemoptysis and nausea with coughing bouts. Crataegus rhipidophylla acts on the heart muscle and cardiovascular system to regulate the heartbeat, treat low blood pressure, associated dizziness and arteriosclerosis. It also acts on the respiratory system to relieve shortness of breath. Ephedra vulgaris is indicated for extreme fatigue from early in the day associated with poor cardiovascular and respiratory function characterised by a slow pulse, rapid shallow respiration, severe headache and nausea. Eriodictyon glutinosum relieves bronchitis, asthma and whooping cough by promoting the elimination of mucus secretions from the lower respiratory tract leading to improvement of symptoms on expectoration. Lobelia inflata is indicated for emphysema in older persons and dyspnoea that is made worse by exertion although rapid walking can provide some relief. It also relieves asthma symptoms preceded by a prickling sensation all over the body. Polygala senega treats emphysema with tenacious mucus that is difficult to expel and where the constant coughing causes pain in the chest walls. Spongia tosta eases short, painful, difficult breathing that causes anxiety. It is also indicated for an asthmatic cough that is worse for cold air , dryness of all respiratory passages and when exertion causes a rush of blood to chest and face with a feeling of congestion. Strophanthus gratus acts on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems to treat bronchial and cardiac asthma, fluid on the lungs and anaemia with palpitations and breathlessness.
