CHERRY HILL, N.J., Sept. 11 Nuvilex, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NVLX), announced today that Legacy Biotechnologies, Inc., its joint venture partner, has informed the company that Reme-Flu(TM) has been secured as the trade name for its homeopathic remedy for helping to prevent and treat flu-like symptoms resulting from influenza, including swine flu. The Reme-Flu(TM) formula consists of a two-part protocol. Part one contains clinically researched ingredients that have been shown to lessen both the duration and severity of flu symptoms. Part two consists of homeopathic sublingual tinctures that are focused on helping lessen respiratory symptoms commonly associated with the flu. This uniquely designed product's two-part protocol flu remedy provides a comprehensive and effective means for safely treating symptoms of the flu.
Homeopathy has a long and successful track record for helping to safely prevent and treat flu symptoms, including typical aches and pains that accompany the flu. During the last flu pandemic, occurring in 1918, homeopathy's performance was outstanding. According to a May, 1921 article in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, Dr. T A McCann stated that of 26,000 cases of the Spanish Flu treated allopathically (conventional treatment), the mortality rate was 28.2%. Conversely, of the 26,000 cases of Spanish Flu treated with homeopathy, the mortality rate was 1.05%. At the same time, statistics collected from Connecticut of over 6,600 cases of Spanish Flu treated homeopathically showed a mortality rate of less than 1%. During the same pandemic, the Homeopathic Medical Society reported the same impressive statistical findings for 1,500 cases treated with homeopathic remedies in the Washington D.C. area.
