Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 5X
1 suppository contains: Medically active substance: 0.2 g Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 5X trit. Other constituents: hard fat (mono-, di-, triglycerides), lactose.
A. Calmette and G. Guerin have described the production of a primary solution of Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. bovis between 1911 and 1914. After a long and very particular preparation, this solution exhibits an avirulent condition, without losing its antigenic properties. This suspension of weakened bacilli is applied for inoculation, and it gives rise to a positive cutaneous reaction. The homeopathic production is based on a cell-wall preparation of this bacterial strain which, on the one hand, does not have any infectiousity - as common vaccines do - and, on the other hand, has extraordinary immunomodulating characteristics.
Homeopathic remedy: To be used according to standard homeopathic indications. Inflammation after BCG prophylactic vaccination, hypertrophy of the tonsils, erythema nosodum, tuberculous rheumatism after Poncet-Leriche, articular rheumatism, asthenia with chronic hypotonia, for immune modulation.
Unless otherwise prescribed: 1 - 3 x weekly 1 suppository, inserted into the rectum at bedtime.
