Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Viburcol, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of conditions of unrest of all kinds with and without fever, the symptomatic treatment of common infections; conditions of excitation, particularly with tearfulness, moodiness, insomnia; before and after diagnostic and therapeutical intervention.
Based on its composition, Viburcol is a preparation for the symptomatic treatment of restlessness, inflammation, fever and mental variations (tearfulness, moodiness).
In feverish conditions, Viburcol brings about a Iytic defervescence, so that no hypotonic circulatory disorders occur. With Viburcol, also in infants, gastro-intestinal disturbances can be treated symptomatically. In the foreground are what are known as flatulent colics; here Viburcol has an anti-spasmodic effect (Chamomilla).
By means of the rectal application (non-irritant suppository base) a powerful and usually rapid pharmacological reversal effect (Arndt-Schulz) with antihomotoxic action is ensured.
The action of Viburcol is to be defined as an antihomotoxic detoxicating effect, in which, through the stimulation of the main defence system, an intensified enzyme activity in the form of detoxicating functions is released (homotoxone coupling).
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: in acute conditions, 1 suppository to be introduced on several occasions in succession, possibly every 1-2 hours. Otherwise 1 suppository 2-3 times daily. Viburcol can be administered innocuously to infants, and, in fact, from the first day of life onwards, without danger of harmful side effects or therapeutical damage. Up to the age of 6 months, maximum 1 suppository twice daily. Viburcol suppositories can also be administered in the appropriate indications, to adults.
