Lymphomyosot: A Dubious Product
Lymphomyosot®, is one hundreds of dubious products manufactured in Germany by Biologische Heilmittel Heel GmbH and distributed by Heel-BHI of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The information below is reproduced from the 2000 U.S. edition of Heel’s Biotherapeutic Index, a 669-page book that can be viewed online. I have posted it here to illustrate the detailed nature of the therapeutic claims made for Heel-BHI products. Under U.S. laws, products intended for the treatment of diseases are classified as drugs and cannot be legally marketed in the United States without FDA approval as safe and effective. Despite occasional pestering from the FDA, Heel has been violating U.S. laws for more than 20 years.

The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: 10-20 drops 3 times daily over a fairly long period. In renal oedemas (nephrosis), treatment is necessary for several months (in addition, Albumoheel S, Berberis-Homaccord, etc.). In (pre-)cancerous dermatitis, the action of Lymphomyosot in promoting detoxication should be supported by simultaneous medication with Hepeel, Psorinoheel, Galium-Heel and possibly also with Engystol N and Traumeel S. In acute disorders, 1 ampoule daily; otherwise 1 ampoule i.m., s.c., i.d., i.v. once to 3 times weekly.
