In cases of
blunt injury, such as falls, sprains or even over-use
such as after a hard day's hiking, several doses of

Helps with the
sudden effects of exposure to heat, cold and emotional
shock when they result in triggering of a latent
infection. For example, colds appearing after a chill

conjunction with fluid and electrolyte replacement. If
there are signs of dehydration (progressively dry
mouth, decreasing urinary output and lethargy), seek
urgent medical advice.

even hiccups may all be rapidly helped.

food and drink is dramatically helped by this medicine
after a few doses, 15 to 30 minutes apart.
