The manufacture of homoeopathic medicines at Naturo Pharm is undertaken strictly according to the principles laid down by the founder of modern homoeopathy, Dr Samuel Hahnemann, and follows established international manufacturing protocols. At Naturo Pharm we manufacture all homoeopathic potencies using the traditional hand succussion method.
Naturo Pharm produces three distinctive homoeopathic product ranges Classical, Classical plus and Complex.
The Naturo Pharm Classical remedy bank is one of the largest in Australasia and contains many thousands of remedies. It includes most remedies listed in the recognised homoeopathic Materia Medicas, along with very many more not as yet listed. All remedies are available in the standard potencies scales (decimal, centesimal, millesimal, etc) and forms (liquids, tablets, oral sprays etc).
The Naturo Pharm Classical plus remedies are unique on the Australasian market. They are manufactured using a potency chord of individual classical remedies, resulting in a wider spectrum of action. They are supplied in oral spray form for ease of use.
The Naturo Pharm Branded complex range offers remedies specifically targeted for many common conditions. Carefully formulated and using modern European research to ensure maximum efficiency, these remedies contain combinations of a number of individual classical remedies.
Naturo Pharm manufactures homoeopathic remedies in the following oral dosage forms:
Supplied in a 20ml dripulator bottle, they have an alcohol / water base and are suitable for general use by the whole family.
• Oral Spray
Supplied in a 25ml metered dose oral spray bottle, for convenience and ease of use. They also have an alcohol / water base. They are suitable for use by the whole family.
While tablets and liquids are as effective, the oral spray is much more convenient and has a faster rate of absorption. The special spray mechanism on the Naturo Pharm oral sprays delivers a consistent and highly accurate dose, which makes the task of compliance to recommended dosage very easy.
It is recognised that homoeopathic remedies work best when taken sublingually, or under the tongue. The oral spray mechanism produces a very fine mist, which tends to coat the inside of the mouth thereby increasing the total surface area through which the remedy can be absorbed.
The widely used and accepted United States reference book, The Physicians Desk Reference, states that oral sprays provide the fastest possible speed of action of all medicinal dose forms. The increased absorption rate is due to the uptake of the medication directly into the capillaries that line the oral cavity. The medication is carried to the heart within 22 to 30 seconds, and from there it is carried by the blood stream to the rest of the body. A test conducted by the Massachusetts General Hospital confirmed that insulin delivered by oral spray acted some 30 minutes quicker than that administered by injection.
Using the Naturo Pharm oral spray remedies has therefore the advantage that the user does not have to wait so long for the body to absorb the remedy – providing more rapid relief.
Naturo Pharm Oral Sprays offer accuracy of the volume of the dose, convenience, increased speed of absorption and action and easier compliance with suggested directions for use.
These are manufactured by impregnating inert lactose tablets with the liquid remedy. They are not suitable for infants.
