Hello,

 

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

 

Staloral, is not a homeopathic treatment. Clinical trails have been completed on this medication world wide, and a meta analysis (an evaluation of the worldwide research) . Here is an abstract from the meta analysis, explaining this:

This medication is not available in the US, but may be soon.

 

Immunotherapy has some similarities to the concepts of homeopathy, but is different. Staloral is an approved immunotherapy medication in Ireland (it was developed in France) and this link from the supplier explains how immunotherapy and Staloral works:

It sounds like this may be a choice that could benefit you. You can print the data and present it to your physician.

 

I'm standing by if you have more questions.
