Alpha™- Liv Drops

Alpha – Liv Drops Due to high demand from the market, for a formulation in drops for the liver, apart from the syrup already available in the market, Schwabe India developed this product. Introduction The liver plays a key role in metabolism. It has anabolic and catabolic, exocrine and endocrine functions. The liver is a blood reservoir, filter and store of different substances (e.g. glycogen, vitamins). It is the site of serum protein (e.g. albumin, prothrombin, fibrinogen) and enzyme synthesis. Metabolic processes (e.g. bilirubin, hormone, carbohydrate and lipid turnover) and the removal of toxic products are important liver functions. 1 Hepatotoxins (e.g. alcohol, tetracycline, acetaminophen, fungal toxins, and anabolic steroids) can cause specific damage to liver cells. Toxic hepatitis may be clinically silent or severe enough to lead to the rapid development of hepatic failure. Clinical features include hepatomegaly, enzyme abnormalities, fever, abdominal pain, anorexia, nausea, vomiting and weight loss. In patients with underlying cirrhosis, manifestations of portal hypertension may predominate. Aversion to fatty food, abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting after meals may be symptoms of 2 cholelithiasis. Jaundice results from accumulation of bilirubin. It has non-hepatic as well as hepatic causes. Hyperbilirubinaemia may be due to abnormalities in the 3 formation, transport, metabolism or excretion of bilirubin. TM Alpha -Liv Drops aids recovery and normalisation of liver functions. Severe liver disease needs specialised treatment. Indications: Slow liver functions, fatty liver, and for supportive treatment of hepatocellular jaundice and toxic liver damage.

Editorial

In 17th century, the great philosopher and astronomer, Galileo faced severe criticism and opposition for his work on heliocentrism (Sun as the centre of the universe) from his contemporary philosophers. That was a period when the science and technology were undeveloped. But even now in a highly scientific era, people refuse to accept certain scientific facts that are proved. The Nobel laureate Prof. Luc Montagnier in an interview, voiced the above concerned and stated that similar kind of intellectual terrorism exists towards such experiments like Benveniste’s water memory study. Excerpts from the interview are given under ‘News from the world of homoeopathy’.   It supports the homoeopathic micro-diluted potentised medicines.

Aegle marmelos is a proved Indian drug and its pathogenesis is available in the literature. But how far those proving symptoms are clinically effective? A clinical verification study has confirmed some of the proving symptoms, and found certain new symptoms as well. Materia medica with these symptoms given under ‘Clinical verification’ will definitely be a useful tool in the clinical practice.

Mother tinctures are helpful in managing critical conditions where individualistic symptoms are weak. In severe respiratory ailments they are very handy and efficient. Yerba santa is one of such promising drugs in addition to Grindelia, Aralia, Lobelia, Ephedra, Ipecacuanha & Justicea in bronchial affections. Its indications in asthma and other respiratory affections are described under ‘Mother tincture info’.

Asthmatic patients need immediate relief. It is bothersome if it is not controlled in the early stage itself. Schwabe India has recently introduced Grindelia Pentarkan (Tablets) for mild bronchial asthma and allergic bronchitis. It has five well known effective homoeopathic drugs as ingredients, Ephedra vulgaris, Grindelia robusta, Ipecacuanha, Justicia adhatoda and Lobelia inflate. The composition is formulated in the right potency and proportion to give a proper outcome. A complete detail of the product is given under ‘Product watch’. With this new product, we are sure that homoeopaths can handle such cases with more ease.

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as joint pains, muscular pains, lumbago, arthritis, etc. are conventionally managed by NSAIDs and analgesics. They tend to give immediate relief but fail to produce fruitful outcome in the long run. Continued use in majority of case produces many side effects.  Homoeopathy manages such cases and certainly improves quality of life over a period. But how far it is true on scientific scale? A study conducted in France was aimed to find out which type of cases frequently visits homoeopaths and other practitioners. Study details like methodology, results and conclusion are given under ‘Research news’.
