Frequently Asked Questions
Does low dose medicine work?
Yes it does, and there are numerous scientific studies proving it which have been published also in over 30 international indexed scientific journals as The Lancet, British Medical Journal, Cancer, etc. In order to offer to a vast audience information about the scientific proofs of low dose medicine, GUNA has published a reference book (2012) containing a collection of some of these important studies.
Briefly, what is the difference between low dose medicine and allopathic chemical drugs?
Allopathic preparations focus on the "symptom" and they are clearly useful, for instance, in emergency medicine, even if they do have potential side effects. On the other hand, low dose medicine works on the whole body, "educating" it to react to the disease, with obvious advantages, for instance, in terms of prevention. In addition, low dose preparations have virtually no side effects. The ideal solution is to combine the two, i.e. to use low dose preparations every time they need, especially for proper disease prevention, and to use the allopathic preparations every time it is unavoidable, due to the particular severity of a disease, but making sure to avoid any abuse. Physicians will decide when to use one or the other.
Can low dose preparations be used for children too?
Yes, definitely. This is a way to avoid pointlessly intoxicating children with chemical substances. Low dose preparations are particularly suitable for treating children, right from early infancy. This type of preparations reinforces the body’s "self-healing" capacity and it is certainly better to begin this prevention process as soon as possible.
Is there a low dose "flu vaccine"?
No. There are low dose medicines that protect against the flu by increasing the body’s immune defenses without injecting pathogenic agents into the body, which can sometimes give rise to complications.
Can low dose preparations be used to prevent the common cold?
Yes. Preventive measures based on low dose preparations increase the body’s immune defenses, so preventing the common cold.
Can low dose preparations be used instead of the classic anti-pain drugs, for conditions such as back pain?
Yes. They rapidly provide relief and they do not intoxicate the body. People who suffer regularly from severe back pain often tend to use particularly invasive medicines, that can subsequently be a cause of gastric diseases. Moreover, that also demands increasingly high doses as time goes on. Low dose medicines help overcoming the pain without such effects.
Are there any low dose preparations for treating animals?
Yes, and they work very well as in humans. They are always well tolerated and they have no side effects. People who ignore the usefulness of low dose medicines often tend to administer large doses of cortisone and other preparations that risk to intoxicate the animal, whereas low dose medicines can solve even severe problems without creating new ones.
Can physicians prescribe low dose preparations against insomnia?
Yes. These preparations are a valid solution because they are not addictive and they do not leave you feeling "drowsy" when you wake up.
Can I ask the pharmacist for advice as to which over-the-counter low dose preparations to use for common diseases?
Yes. Patients often ask their pharmacist for advice, as they know how to recommend a low dose medicine for the milder diseases.
Do Bach flowers remedies work?
They are valid remedies on an emotional level. They help to restore a person’s psychophysical balance, providing protection against panic attacks and anxiety, for instance. GUNA recommends that everyone always carry a bottle of Resource Remedy for use in the event of an emergency.
Are there any low dose ointments to use for treating bruises?
Yes, there are several options, mainly Arnica-based, that have proved more effective than various allopathic ointments available on the market and it can make the bruise become reabsorbed within a few hours.
Is low dose medicine helpful in the prevention of allergies?
Yes, and many patients are now finally succeeding in enjoying the spring, using natural medicines that have the extra advantage of not causing drowsiness.
Is it true that low dose preparations have no side effects?
They are certainly far less invasive than allopathic preparations, but it is not strictly true to say that they absolutely never have any side effects. They are medical preparations, so they may have some contraindications. For instance, it is not necessarily true that the same medicine is suitable for all types of stomachache: only a physician knows which preparation suits each patient best and, in that case, low dose medicines should be prescribed by a physician.
Are low dose medicine and plant therapy the same thing?
No, phytotherapy uses plant extracts in high doses, whereas low dose medicine uses various substances (not only plants) in low doses (which are indeed called “low dose doses”).
Does GUNA manufacture only low dose medicines or some other kind of medicaments too?
GUNA’s origins are strongly linked to low dose medicine. Its most important core business is still the production of low dose medicines, although updated to the most recent scientific findings. Furthermore, thanks to the expertise and knowledge developed in this field, the company has extended its range of production to several other domains. Today GUNA is authorized by the Italian Health Ministry to manufacture low dose medicines, medical devices, cosmetics, food supplements and injectable medicines.

Targeted at affirming the values and the model of Human Centered Medicine in harmony with Nature
The new way of interpreting the concept of health and illness by an increasingly growing number of people is very much in tune with their therapeutic principles. It is the vision of a Medicine that interprets man as a unity of body, emotions, mind and spirit whose imbalances interact one with the other: a doctor and a patient’s target is that of achieving and maintaining a dynamic balance among its components. Consequently, the very medicines are conceived to stimulate the organism to recover its own harmony, and not to repress the symptoms which have to be interpreted as signals of an imbalance requiring intervention. They believe this interpretation of man in a holistic sense finds in their state of the art products the natural therapeutic implication.
