By making this flu medication more widely available, Heel acts as a responsible pharmaceutical company. Our reputation in the practitioner community for providing medicines that work yet cause no harm makes it essential for us to provide greater accessibility to Engystol®.

As the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), gear up for what they predict will be one of the most severe flu seasons in recent history they are asking the public to be prepared. The U.S. government Website, http://www.flu.gov , has posted checklists for individuals and families which include tips on stocking supplies, filling prescriptions and having over-the-counter (OTC), drugs on hand including pain relievers and cough and cold medicines.

Following this news, Heel USA, the makers of Traumeel®, a best seller for pain management and sports injuries, announces the introduction of Engystol® tablets to retailers nationwide. Engystol® is an effective, natural homeopathic medicine with a high safety profile indicated for treating the symptoms of flu. It contains ingredients to support the immune system and alleviate the symptoms of flu, including fever, body aches and chills. According to Dr. Riley, an M.D. internist and the editor in chief of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, "Engystol® tablets were studied in a practice based observational study with more than 150 physician practices participating. Out of the 591 patients that were treated only with Engystol tablets, 49.2% reported 'very good' results meaning there was complete freedom from symptoms, and 40.4% reported 'good' results meaning clear improvement in symptoms. Participating physicians reported excellent to good tolerance of the medication for 97% of their patients¹."

Like all homeopathic medicines, Engystol® is FDA regulated. Doctors worldwide have been recommending it to their patients, because it can treat the symptoms of flu using only natural ingredients. Engystol® works to stimulate the immune system to help the body feel better from the symptoms of the flu. It is safe for the entire family including children and infants. There are no known side effects with Engystol® and no known contraindications. Furthermore, Engystol® will not cause drowsiness like some flu products. At an MSRP of $17.99 for 60 tablets, Engystol® is an economical way to alleviate flu symptoms at a cost of .30 cents per dose.

Thierry Montfort, president and CEO of Heel USA, stated, "By making this flu medication more widely available, Heel acts as a responsible pharmaceutical company. Our reputation in the practitioner community for providing medicines that work yet cause no harm makes it essential for us to provide greater accessibility to Engystol®."

"As with most medications for flu, the most effective way to take Engystol® is at the first sign of illness," said Dr. Riley. If flu symptoms persist or worsen, immediately contact your physician.
