Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Momordica compositum, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of disturbances of the pancreatic function and to produce a regulatory antihomotoxic effect in pancreatitis.

Momordica compositum, due to its composition, is aimed specifically at the symptoms present in pancreas affections, it being recommended, in the case of somewhat obscure disorders, to combine the injections in alternation with Injeel-Chol and Hepeel; in chronic conditions, also with Hepar compositum, Coenzyme compositum and Ubichinon compositum. Also interpolated injections of Mucosa compositum are advantageous in the case of a duodenal contributory cause of a pancreatic affection; for diabetes also Syzygium compositum (orally); for accompanying coronary disorders Strophanthus compositum and possibly Cor compositum.

It is attempted to make as precise as possible a diagnosis in respect of the “storm centre”, the epigastrium, whereby the improvement through Momordica compositum can also provide an indication that the pancreas is or was participating. In this connection, Momordica compositum can also prove useful in certain cases of duodenal ulcers as intermediate injection (to Erigotheel and Anacardium-Homaccord).

An important alternating remedy is Leptandra compositum, especially in pancreatic affections, but also in hepatitis as well as in diseases of the bile duct (in alternation  with Chelidonium-Homaccord and Injeel-Chol).

The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the symptoms and the stage of the illness: in acute disorders 1 ampoule daily, otherwise 1 ampoule 1-3 times weekly i.m., s.c., i.d., i.v. Orally, in addition, Cardiacum-Heel, and further, Duodenoheel and Chelidonium-Homaccord, have proved effective in disorders which radiate to the heart; also Cralonin and Glonoin-Homaccord and the other auxiliary remedies.
