Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Valerianaheel, therapeutical possibilities result for its application as vegetable sedative with mild bromine components (3:1,000); in the treatment of conditions of restlessness, teething disorders, insomnia of any origin; also following other disorders, neurasthenia, climacteric neuroses with insomnia (Aurumheel N drops, Cralonin, Klimakt-Heel). Insomnia accompanying fever and acute infections (Gripp-Heel, Bryaconeel, Veratrum- Homaccord, Traumeel S, etc.).
Powerful narcotic effects cannot be expected from Valerianaheel. Valerianaheel has no toxic side effects and should be reinforced at times by the otherwise indicated Heel biotherapeutics, e.g. by Rhododendroneel S for insomnia due to rheumatic and cardiac conditions, by Nux vomica-Homaccord, Hepeel, etc. for insomnia resulting from disturbances of the hepatic functions (the onset of a pronounced acid tide in the night, between about 2 and 6 a.m. causing wakefulness followed by morning tiredness).
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the symptoms and the stage of the illness: In continuous treatment, 15-20 drops 3-4 times daily, possibly with the corresponding auxiliary remedies. In the evening, (possibly several times) 25 drops in water or on sugar, also when waking up in the night (possibly with auxiliary remedies, particularly Rhododendroneel S). Single dose for infants and small children: 3 drops; from the age of 2 years: 5 drops; from 6-12 years: 10 drops.
