Derinat in early pregnancy

It is used both to increase the body's resistance, improve its adaptive abilities, and in the treatment of emerging diseases. During pregnancy, in the early stages, Derinat eliminates the symptoms of intoxication, toxicosis, which allows you to effectively deal with symptoms such as nausea, headache, vomiting, itching and irritation throughout the body. A characteristic feature is the fact that in the early stages, the body is faced with the task of quickly adapting to new conditions. There is a sharp restructuring of the blood circulation, the main processes occurring in the body. Derinat will help the body to quickly and smoothly adapt to new conditions, increase compensatory, adaptive capabilities.

Another problem is that when pregnancy occurs, immunity decreases sharply (otherwise pregnancy would not be possible, because the body perceives the fetus as foreign, and the immune system destroys it). Therefore, at this time various diseases develop, chronic and latent diseases become more acute, latent and persistent infection is activated. Derinat can be used to treat and quickly normalize the condition. Contains a special spray that allows you to spray the throat, directing it directly to the focus of inflammation. There is an opportunity to carry out inhalations if there is a nebulizer at home: the medicine is poured directly into it, the device is collected, closed and the procedure is carried out. Breathe in through the mouth, exhale through the nose, and vice versa (no more than 15 minutes). It is used for sore throat, nasal congestion.
