WALA medicines – made with natural ingredients – activate the body's self-healing powers by harmonising the bodily functions and strengthening the immune system. They thus complement the methods of conventional medicine. They are suitable for the treatment of both acute and chronic diseases and are used both for self-medication (e.g. coughs and colds) and in the treatment of serious conditions by a doctor (for example, mistletoe therapy for cancer). On the following pages you will find advice about how you can help yourself and your family in the treatment of minor ailments or mild acute illnesses or how you can give first aid before the doctor arrives. Please make sure you read the general information on use of these medicines first. Nevertheless, the final decision on whether or not to consult a doctor can only be made by the sick person himself after carefully weighing up the possible risks of self-medication.
