Solid recovery and lasting improvement with Influcid®

Solid recovery and lasting improvement with Influcid®

People of all ages frequently suffer from typical symptoms such as a blocked nose, sneezing or coughing, a sore throat or fatigue. Common colds and flu are generally triggered by viruses and they are very easily passed on from one person to another. They are spread by droplet infection (airborne droplets) or by direct contact (shaking hands etc.). Sneezing - for instance - scatters viruses at high speed over a distance of several metres. It is therefore almost impossible to avoid contact with pathogens.

The best protection is a robust immune system. In addition, a few simple personal hygiene measures can help to minimise the risk of an infection (cleansing hands regularly and thoroughly, reducing direct contact to others etc.).

Influcid® stimulates the action of the self-defence mechanisms in a natural and balanced way with virtually no side-effects. Your recovery is stable because it comes from the reinforced body itself.

Mode of Action

During seasons with cold and humid weather feverish colds and flu-like diseases are very common. Almost everybody catches at least one cold per year. These are usually caused by a variety of viruses (namely flu-, para-flu, rhino-, respiratory-syncytial-, adeno- and Coxsackie viruses, mycoplasms) which attack predominantly the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract. Cold and wet weather are leading to suppression of the body's immune defence allowing inflammations of the upper respiratory organs.

Influcid® encourages the body with 6 natural components to improve its' self-defence mechanics. Their synergies of action strengthen the body's defence and support thereby the healing tendency and recovery.

Influcid® has a very broad spectrum of action on acute diseases of the respiratory organs with bacterial or viral aetiology because it stimulates our immune system to deal with the infections and does not act on symptoms or in pharmacological way on a selected element.

The Influcid® active substances were selected because of their homeopathic remedy pictures. They are acting complementary to each other. Each component adds to the positive appraisal of the combination.

Influcid® allows a highly effective and well-tolerated treatment of acute feverish colds and flu-like diseases. Effectiveness and tolerability of Influcid® have been proven by the clinical experience and the clinical observational study of 1997 [Blochin et al. 1997]. The results show an effectiveness of more than 90%.

In situations when the infectious pressure or the susceptibility are high, the medicine can be applied for prophylactic purposes as well.
