Labo’Life medicines - general information

  1. Is it a drug/medicine?

Yes, Labo'Life formulas are real medicines. They are notified to the pharmaceutical Agencies, in accordance with the pharmaceutical laws of the countries where they are produced and distributed. Labo'Life drugs/medicines are only available in pharmacies, and authorized distributors.

  1. What is this medicine?

The medicines manufactured by Labo’Life are Micro-Immunotherapy drugs that fall into the category of homeopathic medicines with regards to their manufacturing process, but the stocks (raw materials) that are used are immunological.

  1. How should I keep my medicine? 

Micro-Immunotherapy medicines  should be stored at room temperature, between 20 and 25 ° C, protected from light and moisture. It is not advisable to store them in a bathroom for example.  It is also not advisable to keep them near a source of electromagnetic waves, such as microwave oven and cell phones, amongst others.

  1. The leaflet does not say what it’s for, why?

Labo'Life drugs are currently notified to Pharmaceuticals Agencies. As part of the notifications, homeopathic medicines are classified as "without therapeutic indications." Therefore the leaflets included in the boxes do not mention therapeutic indications.  In addition, within the current regulation, the presence of a leaflet in the boxes is not mandatory. However Labo'Life decided to put one in to give as much information as possible to patients.

  1. What are the side effects of this treatment?

Labo'Life formulas are homeopathic medicines (European Directive 2001/83/EC Art. 14). The use of very small amount of substance means they have few side effects, compared to allopathic drugs.

In some cases, digestive problems may occur when taking the drug on an empty stomach, in which case it is better to take the drug about an hour after a meal.

Labo'Life medicines, like all homeopathic medicines, contain a small amount of lactose, which can cause side effects for patients intolerant to this sugar. The granules of a capsule-dose contain 80 mg of lactose. To give an idea, 100 g of skimmed milk contains 5.0 g of lactose (1)), being 62.5 times more than the globules contained in one capsule.
Someone who is lactose intolerant can try to take this medicine and see if he tolerates it. Otherwise, many homeopaths advise melting the granules into a glass containing a little bit of mineral water, and then leave the water as long as possible in contact with the sublingual mucosa.

When the immune system responds to treatment, an increase in symptoms may appear which is normal in the first fifteen days of treatment. This is a normal phenomenon in homeopathy.  Patients should continue taking the treatment and symptoms will diminish gradually. If symptoms are too strong, consult your doctor.

  1. Should I stop my allopathic treatment when I take Micro-Immunotherapy?

No. If you are taking an allopathic treatment, only your doctor can tell you to stop it.

Do not, under any circumstances, decide to stop this treatment yourself because you are taking a Micro-Immunotherapy medicine. Similarly, when you visit your homeopath, do not forget to tell him what other drugs you take.  In addition, Micro-Immunotherapy can complement conventional therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy, etc…

Labo'Life drugs – Production

  1. How is this made?

Stocks (raw materials) are analyzed by the quality control laboratory and released by the chief pharmacist before being transformed into homeopathic dilutions (CH or K depending on the stocks). The granules are then impregnated with the homeopathic solutions, and then they are put into capsules. The filled capsules are analyzed by the quality control laboratory to check their compliance, and then they are put into blister and packed into cardboard boxes. The finished product is then checked again by the quality control laboratory before being released by the chief pharmacist and placed on the market

  1. Where do the raw materials come from?

Capsules, granules, alcohol, packaging materials, are raw materials manufactured by authorized companies in the pharmaceutical industry. Immunological stocks (95% of the stocks), are produced using recombinant DNA technique. None of the stocks  are of human origin. The stocks are manufactured as much as possible without additives of animal origin. These points help ensure the viral safety of our medicines. All the stocks have a certificate of analysis from the producer and are analyzed by the quality control laboratories of Labo'Life before use to ensure their quality.

  1. Are the components dangerous? I read that there are interferons and tumor necrosis factor in the product composition. 

Labo'Life drugs are homeopathic medicines. The components are diluted many times before entering the composition of our medicines.  At the dilutions used, no toxicity remains as the stocks are not weighable anymore, as in allopathic drugs, but are in the form of homeopathic dilutions.

Labo'Life drugs – Presentation

  1. There are numbers on the blister. Why ?

The Labo'Life formulas are sequential, they follow a logical (sequence) order that must be adhered to as much as possible as it follows the natural cytokine cascade of the immune response that the formula targets. The composition of each capsule is different hence the numbering system which helps the patient to follow the sequence more easily.

  1. Why are there different colors for the capsules?

The gradient colour system works with the numbered system to help the patient follow the sequence.  Some medications have sequences of five capsules (reproduced twice in the blister), or ten capsules. In the case of sequences of 10 capsules, two colors are present on the same blister: blue and red. In the case of sequences of 5 capsules, only one color is present on the blister: either blue or red.

  1. I had blue capsules, now I have red ones...

Depending on the medication, the color of the capsules may vary: some drugs have red capsule sequences, others blue, and some medications will have both blue and red capsules.
If you had blue capsules before and now you have red capsules it means that your treatment has been modified by your doctor, or there was an error in dispensing;  so check the name on the box and if the name on the box does not match your medicine, contact your doctor to see if he has prescribed another drug, and, if this is not the case, contact your pharmacist to let him know about the mistake.

Labo'Life Drugs - Who can take Micro-Immunotherapy medication ?

  1. Can children take medicines Labo'Life?

 Labo'Life drugs are suitable for all. There is no contra-indication to prescribe a micro-immunotherapy drug to a child.

  1. I am pregnant, can I take this medicine?

As with any drug, if you are pregnant, you should tell your doctor before taking this medicine. The two most sensitive periods of pregnancy being the first and last three months, do not hesitate to ask your doctor to evaluate the risk / benefit of the treatment. However, Micro-Immunotherapy drugs are homeopathic medicines, which are in no way contra-indicated for pregnant women.

  1. I'm lactose intolerant, can I take Labo'Life drugs?

Labo'Life drugs are made of homeopathic globules consisting of 80% sucrose and 20% lactose. One capsule contains 400 mg of globules and hence 80 mg of lactose. To get an idea, 100 g of skimmed milk contains 5.0 g (2), 62.5 times more than the capsule.
Someone who is lactose intolerant can try to take this drug and see if he tolerates it. Otherwise, many homeopaths advise melting the granules into a glass containing a little bit of mineral water, then let the water as long as possible in contact with the sublingual mucosa. Generally, this allows the intolerant patient to take homeopathic medicines, although they contain a low dose of lactose.

Labo'Life drugs – intake

  1. How should this medicine be taken?

Micro-Immunotherapy drugs are presented as sequential capsules. The three blisters contained in the box have numbers printed on them. This numbering  should be followed, beginning with capsule number 1 up to the capsule number 10. When the first blister is finished, take the next blister, beginning, again by the capsule number 1. The capsules should be opened and their contents (small granules) must be placed under the tongue to allow contact with the sublingual mucosa. Ideally, the drug must be taken in the morning, on an empty stomach. If this is not possible, it can be taken either 15 to 30 minutes before meals or one hour after the meal.

  1. When should you take this medicine?

Ideally, the drug must be taken in the morning, on an empty stomach. If this is not possible, it can be taken either 15 to 30 minutes before meals or one hour after the meal.

  1. Why under the tongue?

Nature has provided a gateway to the immune system. We have tissue and cells under the tongue that are in contact with our defense system, which works a bit like blotting paper. The substances enter the system directly and immediately transmit the information they contain.

  1. Why should Micro-Immunotherapy treatment be taken on an empty stomach?

The Micro-Immunotherapy formulas are designed to communicate the right message to the immune system. Treatment should preferably be taken on an empty stomach to avoid blurring the message. The information should not be embedded in a stream of food in which it may be lost. Nevertheless, it is also possible to take it between meals or 15 to 30 minutes before them or one hour after them.

  1. The capsules are difficult to open, what can I do?

The Labo'Life capsules are clipped type capsules. They consist of two parts: a head which is shorter, and a body which is longer. The head of the capsule fits around the body of the capsule. To open the capsules more easily, take the body of the capsule between your thumb and forefinger of one hand, and turn the head of the capsule clockwise, holding it between the thumb and forefinger of the other hand. If you have fears of losing granules at the opening of the capsule, you may open the capsule above a clean empty glass in order to save the globules that fall during the opening. (It is important not to touch the globules with your fingers).

  1. I always spill a little bit of globules when I open my capsule, so I do not get the complete dose, is it a problem?

No, it does not matter at all. The amount of granules contained in a capsule is greater than the amount necessary for the drug to act. If this can help you, you can open the capsule above a clean empty glass to save the globules that felt during the opening. (It is important not to touch the globules with your fingers).

  1. I mixed up two capsules, is it a problem?

No, this is not serious. In this case, you should keep on with the treatment where you should be. If you took capsule 5 instead of capsule 4, the next capsule to be taken will be capsule 6.

  1. My doctor told me to take three capsules a day, what should I do?

In case you need to take more than one capsule a day, you have to respect the numbering of the capsules: Take capsule 1 in the morning on an empty stomach, then capsule No. 2 one hour after lunch, and capsule No. 3 around four o’clock (do not  take capsule after 5 pm because it may decrease sleep for some more sensitive individuals). The next morning, take the capsule No. 4 in the morning on an empty stomach, etc… following the same principle.

  1. I have several homeopathic treatments, how should I take them?

Homeopathic medicines should ideally be taken between meals.

If you have to take several treatments, take one in the morning before breakfast, then the following at least 15 to 30 minutes before meals or one hour after the meal. You should not take several homeopathic medicines together.

  1. Can I take my medicine at night?

Components of Micro-Immunotherapy drugs sometimes generate, according to dilutions and people's sensitivity, difficulty in falling asleep. So it is best not to take Labo'Life medications after 5PM. (Except for drugs aimed at restoring sleep, in which case the globules will be taken before bedtime and at least one hour after the last meal).

  1. Are there interactions with food or drinks?

The Micro-Immunotherapy drugs are homeopathic medicines which therefore meet the same intake characteristics. Do not take your medicines during meals, and avoid concomitant use of coffee, tea, chocolate, tobacco, alcohol and mint.

  1. It's been 10 days since I take the treatment and I feel much worse. Is this normal?

When the immune system responds to the treatment, an increase in symptoms may appear within the first fifteen days of treatment. This is a normal phenomenon in homeopathy. Men must continue taking the treatment and symptoms will diminish gradually.

If symptoms are too strong contact your doctor.
