Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Gripp-Heel, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of influenza and catarrhal influenzal infections in any stage and in patients of any age. Further, other feverish (infectious) diseases such as angina, otitis media, bronchitis, tracheitis, etc.
Irrespective of which particular organotropism (organotropy to the upper parts of the respiratory tract, such as the nose and pharynx, pneumo-, cardio-dermato-, entero- or neurotropy) or which microorganism causing influenza is present, an increase in the body’s own defences is always indicated, which is achieved by means of Gripp-Heel (orally and/or parenterally).
In this connection, in the reversal effect according to Arndt-Schulz, Aconitum exerts a specially stimulating action on the haemoderm (abatement of chilliness), in addition rapidly relieving neuralgic disorders and circulatory lability, while Eupatorium eliminates pains in the joints and the feeling of exhaustion. The content of Lachesis mutus (septic infections, tendency towards haemolysis), Bryonia cretica (thirst, irritation from coughing, retrosternal pain, diseases of the serous membranes such as pleuritis) and Phosphorus (petechiae, elective effect on the lungs in preventing pneumonia) broadens the therapeutical spectrum of Gripp-Heel according to Burgi’s principle, perfecting the preparation effectively. The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: in fever and to cut the disease short, at the start of therapy 1 tablet every 15 minutes for 2-3 hours, after which, transition to 1 tablet 3 times daily. As influenza prophylaxis in periods of epidemic, 1 tablet 3 times daily. In primary or secondary serious stages, in addition 1-2 ampoules daily i.m., s.c., i.d., i.v., preferably mixed with Engystol N and/or with Traumeel S (mixed injections to avoid excessive reactions, i.m. or s.c.), as long as fever remains; possibly intermediate injections of Echinacea compositum S.
The intradermal neural application of Gripp-Heel is particularly indicated for pains in the joints. For children, it is recommended that only i.m. or s.c. injections of Gripp-Heel ampoules should be given.
