WILMAR SCHWABE sell them under the name of BIO - PLASGEN NO. 4.

Other companies also market it.

It is considered to be very safe and tones up the constitution.

I am a complete novice with homeopathy, but am convinced of its efficacy. I have a 7 mo. old daughter who has had diarrhea since about 3 weeks old. She received a set of immunizations (Hib, polio, and Prevnar) at 6 mos (her second series) and about a week later became extremely constipated. She has been constipated ever since. I am beginning a total elimination diet (I'm breastfeeding) to see if she has a food intolerance, but I am concerned this is a reaction to the vaccines. Any suggestions are welcome (and details especially, since I'm quite clueless about homeopathy at this point). Many thanks.
