The lymphatic system, which is equipped with various defense mechanisms to deal with micro-organisms (such as phagocytes and lymphocytes as immune cells in the blood and tissues), is affected by such treatment measures and the self-healing powers of the body are no longer optimal effect. Lymphaden Hevert Complex supports immune cells in their health-preserving function. The lymph nodes act as filters organs through the lymph it is cleaned of waste materials. The majority of the nodes is located in the neck region (eg, in the tonsils). Alone there are about 250 of these bodies to clean and thus to keep the body healthy is available. The weakening of the lymphatic system leads to an increased susceptibility to infection is also detoxifying the body disturbed. Especially with today's high pollution levels in the environment, the detoxification of the body through the lymphatic system (including spleen and lymph nodes) as well as liver and kidney is vital. Of malfunctioning of the lymphatic system lymphatic congestion can occur, which are expressed for example in swelling and edema. Lymphaden Hevert Complex improves lymphatic flow, eliminating drainage problems, causing an activation of the immune system. Toxins are flushed out effectively and weigh no more the organism.

Amplified the effect on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract by Arsenicum and Mercurius biiodatus the finest homeopathic doses.

    Hi.. that's not the real name of the homoeopathic meds.. a "complex" is a mix of different homoeopathic meds" so it doesnt tell what the individual homoeopathic meds in it are. I guess your homoeopathic med is made by the company Hevert.

    Lymphaden refers to lymph nodes
    Hevert when I looked it up.. is a name of company (pharma company).

    "Hevert-Arzneimittel ranks among the world's ten largest companies producing
    homeopathic medicines "
    "
    The greatest wealth is health. Hevert has dedicated itself to naturopathy and the development of natural medicines, and is one of the leading German manufacturers of homeopathic and herbal medicines, as well as high-dose vitamin preparations.
    Worldwide, Hevert is one of the ten most important manufacturers of homeopathic medicines"

    Thank You :)

    I am working on the theory that the lymphatic system is the fundamental problem . I am having The Perrin Technique but need something else too. I didn't mention this but went to someone else who practices Iridology and he confirmed the Lymphatic System was the source.

    I tried to get him to prescribe me something for my itchy ears but he confirmed this is a lymphatic problem and to deal with that. I also mentioned my Hypothyroid and adrenaline fatigue - but he again pointed to tackling the Lymphatic System!


    so OK! :) More pieces of the puzzle.

    A Complex! Of course! The journey wore me out ha ha

    The individual ingredients are: 10ml enthalten

    Arsenicum album dil D6 1,00ml
    Clematis dil D2 0,50ml
    Conium dil D4 1,50 ml
    Lachesis dil D6 0,50 ml
    Mercurius bijodatus dil D8 0,95ml
    Phytolacca Dil D4 0,05 ml
    Rhus Toxiodendron Dil D4 2,00ml
    Scrophularia nodosa Dil D3 1,00ml
    Sulfur Dil D4 0,50ml

    I am not used to the combination medications! I will look up the individual ingredients too.

    As per the translation, if I start frothing at the mouth, I will stop taking it ha ha. It is supposed to be very strong remedy - as the lymphmyosot was not stlong enough.

    Pardon my butting in... but I just thought I would add a warning that homeopathy is really lacking any good evidence for efficacy, and has quite a lot of good evidence showing that it is not useful above placebo response. Looking at the history of how homeopathic medicine was developed, it looks really dodgy to me. People are of course free to make their own decisions, but I'd feel bad not mentioning my concerns, in case people were paying a lot/making a big effort/having high hopes over a treatment which is very unlikely to really benefit them.

    Esther12,

    Thanks, I certainly wouldn't want you to feel bad!

    However, for this very reason of not wanting a usual homeopathic debate on whether its just sugarpills etc. , I asked for Homeopathic Experts.

    I was hoping to evoke a more in depth discussion on Homeopathy and learn something about these combination remedies, whilst

    simultaneously not offending any classical homeopaths. :)

    I am not all that comfortable with companies producing mass Homeopathy in combination form. But I am willing to give it a go.

    However, if people would like to all talk about Homeopathy, positive and negative, consider the 'Experts' removed :)

    Golden - I remember taking the h0meopathic remedy - snake venom - my tongue came up in blisters - one of the effects of actually being bitten!! That was enough for me to believe in homeopathy - what you can't disprove don't knock.
    I remember reading about a farmer who cleared mastitis (a big problem for dairy farmers) from his herd with a homeopathic remedy, animals are usually good subjects!!.
    And anyone who's used Resue Remedy will know it works - placebo - no. I forget I've taken it and later realise how the anxiety just went.

    All I would say is start low and slow they can be powerful too.

    I have had some real miracles with Homeopathy and animals. Some animals had been confirmed by Allopathic vets as hopeless, impossible, nothing to be done etc.

    I haven't tried it much on myself maybe x5 experiences over twenty years....

    Just not got the remedy right or it just plain hasn't worked. Have one particular disgruntled story about a Homeopath who made me feel as if I were visiting a Doctor! :(

    One very strong and bad time after taking a remedy from a homeopath made up... i think it was sulfur.
    I really did not touch Homeopathy after this.

    Your snake venom story has hit the nail on the head for me.....bit worried about trailing it...

    It does actually help to say in this circumstance - there is nothing in it.... there is nothing in it... lol :)

    I think that it was the 'experts' bit which drew me in, as I'm doubtful that there are legitimate 'experts' in homeopathy.

    I don't want to impose a debate on the merits of homeopathy on every discussion about it though, as plenty of people will not be interested.
