Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Tartephedreel, therapeutic possibilities result for the treatment of catarrh of the respiratory tract, e.g. Iaryngitis, tracheitis, bronchiolitis, especially with a decrescent tendency, bronchitic asthma.

Adjuvant in (broncho)pneumonia, tubercular and pleuritic irritating coughs, catarrh of the other mucosa, including gastric, intestinal and of the urogenital system.

Catarrh (flow of mucus) aids detoxication. The same applies for the influenza virus which, through the inflammatory process, is broken down and eliminated. Catarrh, therefore, should not be suppressed but its course promoted and accelerated, in order to purify the toxic condition, e.g. in bronchial asthma.

The individual constituents of Tartephedreel give rise to the anti-inflammatory, excretory and detoxicating action of the preparation. The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: for continuous treatment

10 drops 3(-4) times daily. In acute disorders, massive initial-dose therapy with alternating remedies, 10 drops every 15 minutes until an improvement is observed.  The following prescription has proved effective in bronchial asthma:

Husteel 5-8 drops at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Tartephedreel 5-8 drops at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Drosera-Homaccord 5-8 drops at 12 noon and 8 p.m. or all 3 preparations taken together 2-4-6 times daily.
