The action of Aesculus compositum can be reinforced by injections of Circulo-Injeel and Placenta compositum; by way of a general stimulation of the detoxicating processes also through Hepar compositum (hepatic detoxication) and Populus compositum SR (oral preparation to stimulate the renal function), likewise through Lymphomyosot and Apis-Homaccord (both orally and as injections), which also exert a purifying action on the connective tissue and stimulate the renal function, further through constitutionally effective biotherapeutic agents (Psorinoheel, Galium-Heel, Schwef-Heel, Sulfur-Heel, Nux vomica-Homaccord, Calcoheel, etc.). For hypertension Rauwolfia compositum is indicated in addition, likewise, by means of Coenzyme compositum, Ubichinon compositum and possibly Glyoxal compositum, blocked enzyme functions should be reactivated. In the treatment of such circulatory disorders, therefore, the therapeutical holistic principle should be observed, which is achieved by the administration of Cor compositum, Cralonin, Aurumheel N drops, Melilotus- Homaccord, Glonoin-Homaccord and Cardiacum-Heel, in myocardial infarction with Strophanthus compositum, in apoplectic conditions with Carbo compositum. With regard to the hormonal control of the circulatory mechanism, one may also consider possibly Thyreoidea compositum (powerful action on the connective tissue, antineoplasmatic action) and Discus compositum (neural irritation with paresthesia in osteochondrosis, etc.). The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical appearance and the stage of the illness.
