The preparations contained in Vertigoheel of Conium maculatum, Anamirta cocculus, Ambra grisea and Petroleum correspond to a combination of medicaments, which displays a potentiated action in accordance with Bürgi’s principle and which is based on a reversal effect in the sense of the Arndt-Schulz rule.
Apart from oligodynamic trace elements such as sulphates, malates, acetates, chlorides, nitrates and phosphates of calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and manganese, which are identified in the conium extract, the principal pharmacological
effect is to be attributed to the first synthetically produced alkaloid (Ladenburg, 1888) coniine, a propyl piperidine with the empirical formula C8H17N. The picrotoxin contained in Anamirta cocculus is a stimulant of all efferent centres of the central nervous system. It acts on the cerebrum, the medulla oblongata and the spinal cord. It also influences the adrenalin secretion and activates the conium effect considerably.
The aromatic compounds and the cholesterin-like ambrein contained in the amber, as well as the active hydrocarbons in the petroleum (nausea and dizziness when travelling) intensify the total action in a reciprocally potentiating sense.
Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Vertigoheel, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of vertigo of various origins, Menière’s syndrome (giddiness, nausea, tinnitus), dizziness through nervous factors or through arteriosclerotic changes with or without arterial hypertension, dizziness originating from the labyrinth, commotio cerebri acuta and post-concussion disorders.
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the symptoms and the stage of the illness: for attacks of dizziness, massive initial-dose therapy, 1 tablet or 10 drops every 15 minutes. For the continuous treatment, 3 tablets or 10-20 drops 3 times daily. For attacks of dizziness and nausea, 1 ampoule, otherwise 1-3 times weekly 1 ampoule i.m., s.c., i.d.., i.v. For commotio cerebri: mixed injection with Traumeel S.
