Medicine that works gently with your cells

Over the past decade, the results of the Italian biotechnological research in the field of low dose Pharmacology have outlined new treatment options for many diseases and have attracted the attention of the scientific community on new, cutting-edge, effective medicaments without side effects, and a new medical paradigm: Low Dose Medicine.

Low Dose Medicine was born from the dream of a medicine centered on the Person and in harmony with Nature. It originated from the combination of Molecular Biology and Psycho-Neuro-Endocrine-Immunology (PNEI). It was developed thanks to the results of research in the field of low dose Pharmacology.

Low Dose Medicine is based on three guiding principles:

  • Addresses the human being and not just the disease.
  • Act on the causes and not just on the symptoms.
  • Consider the human being as a mind-body unit and in her/his individuality.

This is an ancient and wise concept, which comes from the homeopathic tradition, but it is also very up-to-date.

From the second half of the Eighties, in fact, the development of the concepts expressed by the Psycho-Neuro-Endocrine-Immunology resulted in a change of perspective in the interpretation of the biological functions of the human body and its diseases, shifting from organicism (each disease affects a single organ or tissue) to the cellular network, until recognizing the importance of continuous dialogue – cross talk – between cells, organs and systems both in physiological and pathological conditions (every disease is the result of a lack of communication between the cells of different Systems).

Starting from these assumptions, pharmacological research has been focusing on the role played by special biological molecules, thus paving the way for what could have been a new therapeutic solution, i.e., the use of the same organic molecules as medicaments to restore the original physiological conditions in a sick body.

The Future Of Low Dose Medicine

This is our future. These special biological molecules are well known and studied by Molecular Biology, which defines them, not surprisingly, messenger molecules, i.e., substances that can the give “proper instructions” to the body cells to contribute to their good function…

These molecules are neuropeptides, hormones, and cytokines.

In addition to the above mentioned molecules there are also growth factors, basic molecules that regulate and stimulate tissues.

They are the “words” used by the cells to communicate with each other.

For many years, the use of these substances as medicaments has been the dream of scientists and physicians. No Medicine can be more effective than a Medicine that uses physiological substances, i.e., those substances involved in bodily functions. No Medicine can be more “organic” and safe than a Medicine that follows the rules of nature.

Nevertheless, the rules of Nature are very strict: the messenger molecules, through which the cells exchange information so as to make any biological mechanism perfectly efficient, act properly if their concentration is physiological, and yet this concentration is very low.

The pharmaceutical technology developed and standardized in Guna Laboratories, called SKA (Sequential Kinetic Activation) has made it possible to “duplicate” this specific concentration and incorporate the molecules that guide our body’s vital functions into medicaments. These molecules are able to restore the body’s physiological conditions and can “repair” damage.

In a few words: they can repair and restore.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Does low dose medicine work?2022-01-06T14:56:20-05:00

Yes it does, and there are numerous scientific studies proving it which have been published also in over 30 international indexed scientific journals as The Lancet, British Medical Journal, Cancer, etc. In order to offer to a vast audience information about the scientific proofs of low dose medicine,  GUNA has published a reference book (2012) containing a collection of some of these important studies.

Briefly, what is the difference between low dose medicine and allopathic chemical drugs?2022-01-06T14:57:14-05:00

Allopathic preparations focus on the “symptom” and they are clearly useful, for instance, in emergency medicine, even if they do have potential side effects.

On the other hand, low dose medicine works on the whole body, “educating” it to react to the disease, with obvious advantages. In addition, low dose preparations have virtually no side effects.

The ideal solution is to combine the two, i.e. to use low dose preparations every time we need, especially before symptoms appear, and to use the allopathic preparations every time it is unavoidable, due to the particular severity of a disease, but making sure to avoid any abuse. Physicians will decide when to use one or the other.

Can low dose preparations be used for children too?2022-01-06T15:10:56-05:00

Yes, definitely. This is a way to avoid pointlessly intoxicating children with chemical substances. Low dose preparations are particularly suitable for children, right from early infancy. These type of preparations reinforce the body’s “self-healing” capacity and it is certainly better to begin this process as soon as possible.

Is there a low dose “flu vaccine”?2022-01-06T15:12:10-05:00

No. There are low dose medicines that work with the body’s immune defense system without injecting pathogenic agents into the body, which can sometimes give rise to complications.

Can low dose preparations be used for the common cold?2022-01-06T15:13:25-05:00

Yes. Low dose preparations increase the body’s immune defenses, and can help reduce the duration and severity of cold symptoms. 

Are there any low dose preparations for animals?2022-01-06T15:14:31-05:00

Yes, and they work very well as in humans. They are always well tolerated and they have no side effects. People who ignore the usefulness of low dose medicines often tend to administer large doses of cortisone and other preparations that risk to intoxicate the animal, whereas low dose medicines can solve even severe problems without creating new ones.

Can physicians prescribe low dose preparations against insomnia?2022-01-06T15:15:33-05:00

Yes. These preparations are a valid solution because they are not addictive and they do not leave you feeling “drowsy” when you wake up.

Can I ask the pharmacist for advice as to which over-the-counter low dose preparations to use for common diseases?2022-01-06T15:17:30-05:00

Yes. Patients often ask their pharmacist for advice, as they know how to recommend a low dose medicine for the milder diseases.

Are there any low dose ointments to use for bruises?2022-01-06T15:18:33-05:00

Yes, there are several options, mainly Arnica-based, that have proved more effective than various allopathic ointments available on the market and it can make the bruise become reabsorbed within a few hours.

Is low dose medicine helpful for allergies symptoms?2022-01-06T15:19:34-05:00

Yes, and many patients are now finally succeeding in enjoying the spring, using natural medicines that have the extra advantage of not causing drowsiness.

Is it true that low dose preparations have no side effects?2022-01-06T15:20:42-05:00

They are certainly far less invasive than allopathic preparations, but it is not strictly true to say that they absolutely never have any side effects. They are medical preparations, so they may have some contraindications. For instance, it is not necessarily true that the same medicine is suitable for all types of stomachache: only a physician knows which preparation suits each patient best and, in that case, low dose medicines should be prescribed by a physician.

Are low dose medicine and plant therapy the same thing?2022-01-06T15:22:04-05:00

No, phytotherapy uses plant extracts in high doses, whereas low dose medicine uses various substances (not only plants) in low doses  (which are indeed called “low dose doses”).

Does GUNA manufacture only low dose medicines or some other kind of medicaments too?2022-01-06T15:23:54-05:00

GUNA’s origins are strongly linked to low dose medicine. Its most important core business is still the production of low dose medicines, although updated to the most recent scientific findings.

Furthermore, thanks to the expertise and knowledge developed in this field, the company has extended its range of production to several other domains.

Today GUNA is authorized by the Italian Health Ministry to manufacture low dose medicines, medical devices, cosmetics, dietary supplements and injectable medicines.
