Kalium iodatum wird in der Homöopathie vor allem bei Erkältungen und fest sitzendem Husten sowie bei einer grundsätzlichen Neigung zu Infektionen eingesetzt.
Daneben findet es Anwendung bei starkem Schwitzen, Heuschnupfen, Krampfhusten und Asthma bronchiale.
Eines der Leitsymptome ist trockener, krampfartiger Husten mit weißlichem Auswurf und Atembeschwerden.
Kalium phosphoricum ist ein homöopathisches Mittel für Menschen mit schwachen Nerven, Nervosität und Unruhe, geistigen Erschöpfungen wie Burn-out und Durchfall. Eingesetzt wird es auch bei nervösem Magen (Durchfall). Hauptanwendungsgebiet des Mittels ist zudem Kopfschmerz.
Die Leitsymptome zur Verwendung von Kalium phosphoricum sind:
- Überarbeitung und Erschöpfung
- Nervöser Magen
- Schwache Nerven
- Kopfschmerzen und Verspannungen
- Leeregefühl im Bauch, das bei leichter Bewegung besser wird
- Summen und Brummen in den Ohren
- Überstrapazierte Stimmbänder bis hin zu Stimmverlust
- Trockener Mund, gelb belegte Zunge, Mundgeruch
- Der Betroffene hat einen schlanken Körperbau
Ein weiteres Mittel aus der Therapie zur Stärkung des Immunsystems ist Kalium sulfuricum, das insbesondere gegen Husten verwendet wird.
Leitsymptome des Mittels sind:
- Starkes Verlangen nach frischer Luft
- Abneigung gegen Wärme
- Gelb belegte Zunge
- Gelbe, mild schleimige Sekrete in Nase und / oder Bronchien
Neben der Homöopathie gibt es zahlreiche weitere Verfahren, die das Immunsystem stärken sollen.
Im Mittelpunkt der Naturheilkunde steht immer: der Mensch als Ganzes aus Seele, Geist und Körper, eingebettet in bestimmte Lebensumstände.
Die Methoden zielen darauf ab, die Schleimhäute in den Atemwegen sowie im Darm abzuhärten und ein inneres Gleichgewicht herzustellen. Ein Allheilmittel gibt es nicht, stattdessen müssen die genauen Behandlungen auf den Einzelnen und sein Immunsystem abgestimmt sein.
Hier einige weitere Möglichkeiten, das Immunsystem neben oder anstelle der Homöopathie zu unterstützen:
- Yoga, Meditation und Autogenes Training: vor allem bei stressbedingt geschwächtem Immunsystem
- Bachblütentherapie: mit den 38 Blüten, die der Begründer Dr. Bach, als Mittel zur Behandlung verschiedener Seelenzustände identifiziert hat
- Schüssler-Salze: Heilung mit Mineralsalzen
- Pflanzenheilkunde (Phytotherapie) mit Sonnehut (Echinacea), Taigawurzel, Mistel, Lebensbaum (Thuja), …
- Aromatherapie: Heilung mit ätherischen Ölen
- Kneipp’sche Aufgüsse und Sauna zur Abhärtung
- Suche und Vermeidung von Umweltgiften

The BBC is reporting that John’s Hopkins researchers have discovered one of the ways the immune system naturally restricts its own activity. Carabin is a protein produced by white blood cells, and places a drag on the immune reponse to an infection. Why would the body want to cripple its own immune response? How could it be useful for the body to hold back when an infection is in play? If you have an autoimmune disease, you already know the answer. When unrestricted, the immune system can be as much an enemy as a friend.
Researchers hope that this discovery will yield benefits for transplant patients in controlling the rejection of new organs, and possibly in the treatment of autoimmune diseases as well. However the protein, because of its size, will not be easy to incorporate into a drug.
IVIG, intravenous immune globulin, is the intravenous injection of immunoglobulin G taken from more than a thousand plasma donors. For patients recieving this expensive, risky and time-consuming therapy for autoimmune diseases or chronic inflammatory diseases, there may be an alternative soon.
A small part of the current IVIG solution is responsible for disabling interferon gamma, which researchers identify as a significant source of inflammation. Researchers in New York believe they can seperate out, even synthesize the specific portion of the solution that will block interferon gamma. The result could be quick and easy, less expensive injections with less risk of infection. The timeframe? Possibly more than 3 years. The timeframe would be much longer if the active ingredient of this potential treatment were not already being used on human subjects, but if you are an IVIG patient, 3 years may try your patience nonetheless.
When good systems go bad, it makes for odd bedfellows. Cancer happens when your cells fail to self-regulate their own existence, and one of the ways we attack it is with radiation that hurts us as well as the cancer. In M.S., the immune system is the malfunctioning system, and scientists in Portugal are experimenting with another treatment that’s normally deadly to humans. Normally oxygen is good and carbon monoxide is bad. In the twisted world of autoimmune diseases, these roles are reveresed.
The New Scientist today reports that carbon monoxide treatment has shown benefits for M.S. mice. Scientists caused experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in the mice, their version of M.S. Next they placed some of the mice in an envoirnment with levels of carbon monoxide that would cause discomfort for humans for 20 days. Those mice breathing the carbon monoxide were considerably less disabled than those breathing normal air.
One of the scientists suggests this can be explained by looking at carbon monoxide’s effects of immune system produced free radicals. In autoimmune diseases like M.S., the immune system may release too many free radicals, and the progression of the symptoms may be affected by their destructive ability. The carbon monoxide indirectly decreases the production of free radicals, and this may be why the M.S. mice fared better than their counterparts.
Pharmaceutical companies are currently working on developing drugs that can deliver carbon monoxide locally within the nervous system, the researchers say. They stress that MS patients should under no circumstances try inhaling carbon monoxide – the gas can be lethal.
