Homeopathic complex remedies contain harmoniously coordinated preparations containing several individual remedies that are effective for one area of application. There are complex remedies which are used for digestive disorders, obesity, metabolic diseases and mental as well as physical problems caused by overweight. The complex agents, the so-called “Abehm globules” contain capsicum, fucus vesiculosus, graphites and sulphur.
In addition, one can take complex agents which promote fat burning per se, stimulate the metabolism and regulate the appetite. These globules “Wabra No. 8” contain Calotropis gigantea, Helianthus tuberosus, Ilex paragueriensis, Fucus vesiculosus, Petroselinum and Rhamnus frangula. With the complex remedies, five globules are swallowed three times a day.
HCG globules are the trademark of the hCG diet. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone that is produced in the placenta of pregnant women during pregnancy. The founder of the hCG diet, British endocrinologist Albert T. W. Simeons, found that women with small doses of hCG lost more fat tissue than muscle tissue and therefore recommended an ultra-low calorie diet with a daily intake of small amounts of hCG. You can buy globules, injections or drops that contain small amounts of the hormone hCG. However, since the body only takes in 500 calories daily with food in addition to hCG, this diet is highly controversial.
Side effect of the globules
The most common side effect when taking globules is the so-called initial worsening. The globules differ greatly in their effects. Depending on which globules you take, the side effects can also be different.
The initial aggravation means that a healthy person develops certain symptoms similar to a disease by taking homeopathic medication. This phenomenon is also called “artificial illness” in homeopathy and indicates that the remedy is accepted by the body or that the preparation used matches the symptoms. This effect usually lasts from minutes to hours.
In the case of globules for weight loss, there is no need to fear weight gain within hours, but other symptoms that affect the metabolism or appetite. Symptoms such as diarrhoea or fever rarely occur. Sensitive people can react with skin reactions to taking the globules. In case of a pronounced initial aggravation and other side effects, the treating physician or homeopath should be consulted.
Losing weight with globules/homeopathy in the menopause
Globules with the homeopathic active ingredient sepia are popular remedies to help you lose weight during the menopause. During the menopause, hot flushes alternating with cold sensations in the arms and legs are common, as well as migraine and urinary incontinence. Due to the hormonal changes during the menopause, many women suffer from weight gain, even though they no longer eat or eat differently. The active ingredient sepia has a D12 potency and when taking sepia to lose weight during the menopause, 5 globules are taken three times a day. The absorption of the remedy is improved by exercise and heat.
