How Similasan Products Work
Similasan products stimulate the body to heal itself by utilizing "microdilutions" of the 100% Natural Active Ingredients. This system of medicine is known as homeopathy.
In the production of Similasan homeopathic medicines, their 100% Natural Active Ingredients (originating from mineral, plants or animals) undergo a process of serial dilution. This complex terminology simply means that they create a very weak dilution, or a microdilution of the ingredient. Technically, a solution’s concentration is represented by an "X." For example, an ingredient diluted to the level of 6X contains 0.0000001% of the active ingredient. This homeopathic mode of action is similar in theory to a conventional allergy or flu shot, yet the 100% Natural Active Ingredients in homeopathic products are much more dilute, and are safe for all ages without known side effects.
Similasan often asked why some ingredients, such as apis (honey bee), belladonna and mercurius are used? After all, these substances can trigger significant reactions when used in strong concentrations. This is true. In homeopathy, however, the dosages are not concentrated enough to poison the body. The body’s immune system reacts to the ingredients by triggering the immune system to heal the underlying problem. For example, a microdilution of honey bee will trigger the body to fight symptoms such as burning, stinging and swelling, which are in many cases, the symptoms of allergy.
In summary, homeopathy is a completely unique way of treating ailments. Rather than imposing a chemical drug on the body with the hope of temporarily masking symptoms, homeopathic 100% Natural Active Ingredients attempt to stimulate a physiological reaction of the body's healing mechanisms. In other words, homeopathy encourages the body to maintain proper health by imposing a gentle stimulus, and letting your system do the rest.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homeo, meaning similar, and pathos, meaning suffering. The principle of Homeopathy is based on the Law of Similars. It was Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who discovered the benefits of Homeopathy. He pioneered the dilution process still used by all Homeopathic formulators. Today, after 200 years of Homeopathic drug proving, there is a basis or "pathogenesis" that each formulator and homeopathic doctor follows when diagnosing and treating patients.
Are Homeopathic products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration?
Yes, homeopathic remedies are prepared according to the guidelines of the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS), which is recognized as official by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The manufacture of homeopathic remedies is regulated similarly to nonprescription, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does require that homeopathic remedies meet certain legal standards for quality, strength, and purity. Only products for self-limiting conditions recognizable by consumers (minor health problems like a cold or headache that go away on their own) can be sold without a prescription.
To be accepted as a homeopathic drug by the FDA, product ingredients must be identified in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
What are the side effects of Similasan products?
The 100% natural active ingredients in Similasan products are homeopathically prepared and therefore highly dilute. This is why Similasan products cause no known side effects or drug interactions. For more information see the heading What Is Homeopathy.
Can I use Similasan eye drops with my contact lenses?
While Similasan eye drops work wonderfully for relieving irritation from contact lenses, they recommend that you first remove your contact lenses before using any of our eye drop products.
Can I use Similasan products while pregnant/nursing?
As with all OTC products, if you are pregnant or nursing, you should check with your health care provider before using our products. If possible, check with a health care provider who is familiar with homeopathic products.
My doctor isn't familiar with Similasan products or how they work. Where can I find a doctor who is?
Similasan recommends visiting a doctor who has received training in homeopathy. The National Center for Homeopathy publishes a list of homeopathic practitioners on its website.
Does Similasan have a satisfaction guarantee?
Yes. If you are not satisfied with Similasan products for whatever reason, simply take the product back to the store with your receipt for a full refund.
Does Similasan perform animal testing?
No. Similasan products are never tested on animals.
Will Similasan products cause dependence or "the rebound effect?"
While some conventional OTC medicines (eye drops and nasal decongestants) clear up, or "mask," symptoms temporarily, the same symptoms often come back with shorter periods of relief in between doses. For this reason, many people develop a dependency on OTC eye drops and nasal decongestants. Similasan's Original Swiss Formulas are intended to stimulate the body's natural ability to provide relief for symptoms of common ailments. There is no worry of toxic build-up or the rebound effect with any Similasan product.
