Alcohol - is it okay?
A well-known principle of homeopathy states that the healing effect of homeopathic medicines is influenced and canceled out by generally damaging factors in the way of life (such as alcohol). For this reason, the consumption of alcohol should be avoided as far as possible during therapy with Traumeel. However, there are no studies or experience reports that support the influence of alcohol on the effectiveness of the drug.
The prices of Traumeel® vary depending on the form of application (tablets, cream, gel, drops). The price for a pack of 250 tablets is approximately 25 euros. For a cream with 100g you have to pay about 10 euros. The Traumeel® gel with 50g costs about 8 euros. A pack of 100ml Traumeel® drops is available for around 25 euros.
The prices for the animal products from Traumeel® differ significantly from the products for humans. A pack of 100 ampoules costs around 150 euros, while a pack of 500 tablets costs around 50 euros.
