It is known that in the process of strengthening of immunity different organs like bone marrow, thymus, liver, spleen, leucocytes, lymph nodes, tonsils, wide range of cells and molecules play an important role. It is evident that any alteration of function of the above organs or suppression of function of bone marrow as source of white blood cells is going to badly alter the immune defence system of the individual.
What might not be known to many is an established scientific fact that the potent chemotherapeutic agents and antibiotics alter the normal organic functions and suppress bone marrow functions. The molecules of immune system “immunoglobulins” (antibodies) are capable of recognizing and deactivating the disease causing antigens, thereby preventing or eliminating diseases. Poisoning and toxicity due to alteration in organic functions are the cause of weakening of defence mechanism. The modern system of homoeopathy looks towards systemic detoxification in the areas of concern i.e. bone marrow, liver, spleen, lymphocytes, lymph nodes, tonsils and the cells playing a vital role in the immune defence mechanism.
Alpha- WD is a combination of five proven homoeopathic medicines each known to enhance the body’s resistance power (immuno-stimulation). They complement one another when used for affecting an increase in body’s resistance power.
