Im Rahmen einer Ärzteumfrage erhob die WALA Heilmittel GmbH Daten zur Anwendung, Wirksamkeit und Verträglichkeit von Citrus e fructibus/Cydonia e fructibus, Flüssige Verdünnung zur Injektion, bei Kindern und Jugendlichen.
42 Ärzte dokumentierten ihre Erfahrungen bei allergischem Asthma, 44 Ärzte bei Heuschnupfen. Die befragten Therapeuten verordneten die Inhalation häufiger als die Injektion, wobei vor allem das Alter der Patienten ausschlaggebend für die Wahl der jeweiligen Applikationsform war. Allerdings erzielte sowohl bei allergischem Asthma als auch bei Heuschnupfen die Injektion nach Einschätzung der Ärzte eine bessere Wirksamkeit.
Ärzte beobachteten unter der Behandlung mit Citrus e fructibus/Cydonia e fructibus, insbesondere hinsichtlich der Intensität und Häufigkeit von Asthmaanfällen, einer erschwerten Atmung sowie des bei Asthma typischen „Giemen und Brummen“ deutliche Verbesserungen bis zur Beschwerdefreiheit. Bei Heuschnupfen führte die Behandlung noch häufiger zur kompletten Beschwerdefreiheit, vor allem bei nasalen Symptomen wie Juckreiz und Niesen. Zudem ließ sich durch die Behandlung mit Citrus e fructibus/Cydonia e fructibus die weitere indikationsbezogene Medikation in vielen Fällen reduzieren. Die Ärzte schätzten Citrus e fructibus/Cydonia e fructibus als wirksames und sehr gut verträgliches Arzneimittel zur Behandlung von allergischem Asthma sowie Heuschnupfen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen. ‡ wa

Die Ergebnisse von Orangenöl bezüglich der Befindlichkeit sind deshalb interessant, weil die Wirkung von Orangenöl in der Literatur als sehr unterschiedlich beschrieben wird:
Orangenduft wurde in Studien als sehr erfrischend und heiter empfunden und zeigte einen nachweislichen antidepressiven Effekt (Lis-Blachin, 1995, Miyake et al., 1992, Komori et al., 1995).
Außerdem führte Inhalation von Orangenöl, das im Wartezimmer eines Zahnarztes in der Raumluft gegeben wurde, zu positiverer Stimmung, weniger Angstgefühlen und zu geringerer Unruhe (Lehrner, 2000).
Erstaunlicherweise soll die aufheiternde Wirkung tageszeitabhängig sein und ist offensichtlich am Stärksten um 9 h. und 12 h. (Miyazaki et al., 1992). Außerdem fand man heraus, dass Orangenöl unterschiedlich wirkt, je nachdem, ob der Duft vor oder nach der Arbeit gegeben wurde. Orange wirkte dem nach besser, wenn es vor physischer oder mentaler Arbeit inhaliert wurde (Sugawara et al.,1991). Weiterhin wurde dargestellt, dass Orangenöl die Akzeptanz der Einleitungsphase vor Narkosen bei Kindern signifikant erhöhte (Metha et al., 1998). Heuberger et.al. (2001) fanden heraus, dass die Chiralität von Molekülen unterschiedliche Ergebnisse bezüglich der Wirksamkeit hervorbrachten. So hat (-)- limonene, der Hauptbestandteil von Orangenöl, keinen Einfluß auf psychologische Parameter, während (+)-limonene zu einer Steigerung von Vigilanz und
Unruhe führte. Zudem hemmt Orangenöl die CNV (contingent negative variation) (Sugano et al., 1991) und es scheint zu einer Konzentrationsteigerung zu führen (Miyazaki et al., 1991 a). Ebenfalls zu einer Konzentrationsteigerung führte Lemonöl, ein dem Orangenöl bezüglich des Hauptbestandteiles Limonen (96%) vergleichbarem etherischen Öl. Lemonduft führt außerdem zu einem Anstieg der Alphawellen (Sakakibara et al., 1997). Außerdem hat Orangenöl einen dokumentierten Einfluss auf die parasympathische Aktivität. Durch Beobachtung der unterschiedlichen Beschleunigung der Konstriktionsrate der Pupille fand man heraus, dass Orangenöl die parasympathische Aktivität steigerte (Buchbauer, 1996).
Zu einem gleichen Ergebnis kam eine Untersuchung von Miyazaki et al. (1991), die den parasympathischen Anstieg bestätigt, der hier anhand von Darstellung der Dilatation oder Konstriktion der Pupille gemessen wurde. Orangenduft hat zudem Einfluß auf die Cortisolausschüttung, die in einer Untersuchung mit depressiven Patienten, die unter anderem Orangenöl erhielten, gemessen wurde. Hier fanden sich signifikant geringere Mengen an Cortisol und Dopamin im Urin, was einen eindeutigen Hinweis auf eine reduzierte Stressreaktion liefert (Komori et al., 1995). Auch bei Ratten, die zwei Wochen Lemonduft ausgesetzt waren, nahm die Corticosteroidkonzentration signifikant ab
(Ceccarelli et al., 2004).
Im Tierversuch konnten folgende Beobachtungen gemacht werden:
Buchbauer (1996) berichtet über einen interessanten Versuch mit Mäusen, in welchem die Motilität mittels einer Lichtschranke gemessen wurde.
Er testete an sowohl nicht vorbehandelten, als auch an mit Koffein vorbehandelten Mäusen. Unter Orangenduft fand er einen Zuwachs an Motilität bei
den unbehandelten Mäusen, eine starke Abnahme jedoch bei den zuvor aktivierten Mäusen. Dies bestätigt in gewisser Weise die bisherigen Erkenntnisse über Orangenduft, das in beide Richtungen aktivierend und sedierend - wirken kann. Weiterhin wird einem in vivo Versuch ein Anstieg von Tonus, rhythmischen Kontraktionen und Peristaltik beim Hund beschrieben (Lis-Balchin, 1995)
Zusammenfassend lässt sich keine eindeutige Wirkrichtung von Orangenduft in der Literatur darstellen. Es kann, wie dargestellt, sowohl aufheiternd und Antrieb steigernd als auch entspannend wirken.
In der vorliegenden Untersuchung konnte in keinem der drei Unterbereiche des Befindlichkeitsfragebogens eine signifikante Änderung des Wohlbefindens nach Orangenduftexposition beobachtetet werden. Am besten schneidet der Bereich „Gute- Schlechte Stimmung“ ab, da hier das Signifikanzkriterium mit einem p-Wert von 0,067 nur knapp verfehlt wurde. Die aktivierende Wirkung von Orangenöl hat sich tendenziell eher bestätigt als die sedierende Wirkung. Im Bereich „Wach-Müde“ konnte keine aktivierende Wirkung beobachtet werden.
Im Folgenden soll analysiert werden, wie sich Orangenduft auf die Stimmung auswirkt, wenn die Gruppen wiederum geteilt werden in eine Gruppe, die von Anfang an „gut drauf“ waren und eine Gruppe, die von Anfang an schon eher „schlecht drauf“ waren. Dabei kann ein eindeutiges Resultat dargestellt werden: Der einzige Aspekt, bei welchem eine signifikante Steigerung zu beobachten war, war der Bereich; „Ruhe-Unruhe“ und dies nur in der Gruppe,
die zu Beginn angab, eher „unruhig“ zu sein. Dies ist umso erstaunlicher, wenn man bedenkt, dass Orangenöl innerhalb des Gesamtscores keine Signifikanz aufweisen konnte. Hier zeigt also Orangenduft einen deutlich sedierenden Einfluss und bestätigt die oben beschriebenen Untersuchungen, die einen sedierenden Effekt postulierten. Je unruhiger der Gesamtzustand einer Person ist, umso beruhigender scheint Orangenduft zu wirken.

My three year old vomits 3x in the car. The last proving she got really sick..
Some (nausea) this afternoon, probably noticed around 4pm for about an hour. It wasn’t about the proving, the intensity about the nausea, not the proving.
Burping; 16.30 h. still burping.
One thing that happened around 16.30 h. today was i got burning sensation in my diaphragm and it radiates up, I don’t know if it would be considered heartburn because
the pain is not as high as I would expect. it came on with vigorous exercise. it hasn’t resolved yet. food and drink made it worse.
Had some nausea around 4, lasted about an hour.
Came home to find my 6 yr. old son very sick. Violent vomit, no fever. Partner had said that he threw up everywhere (but the bathroom). Huge mess to clean.
Actually feel incredible fat, weighted, full , bloated, not getting hungry (again, I understand that only eating sugar is not a wise idea).
I am burping more than usual. I am feeling nauseous and tired most of the afternoon. Son still sick, all through the night he would vomit, so much so that as he woke up
he could not ever roll head around to get it in the bowl he had. A messy night/early morning.
One thing that is typical for me that has increased is my gag reflex. Typically when I am extremely stressed I will gag for no apparent reason. I also tend to gag when
I brush my teeth. For the past two days, I am not only gagging, but I threw up last night after an episode of gagging while brushing my teeth.
On the drive down I got very nauseous and I had purposely eaten because if I run out the door with just having had my supplements I can get nauseous.
Stomach girdish. Feel it into my throat and into my right jaw bone.
For me, yes , this is atypical when I get diarrhea. It was quite forceful. I was extremely nauseous and crampy. I omitted once, tons and violent in its delivery. I was really restless all night up most of it running to the bathroom but yes, I am better now today so all in all it started around 3ish yesterday and feel better this morning. I am weak
and food is not appealing but the nausea is over and just a little cramping. Not fun!!!
Nausea is better, it is constant, lot of cramping (unusual), vomiting was quick and intense.
Felt skinny yesterday, but today feel bloated.
Threw up yesterday and by 14 h. stomach was feeling not quite right. Spent from 15 h. until bedtime (at 19 h.) on the couch. Stomach flipping over and over. Wanting to throw up, but never quite getting there.
Morning sickness sick and I had a headache . Suddenly I had this incredible pain in my gut (belly button area) that doubled me over. I could not stand up straight. I got
to a chair and could sit but if I got up I could not stand. After about 30 minutes I could stand but my belly was really sore. I drove home and didn’t feel very good and
went to bed early.
Feeling tired in achy in general, stomach still distended, full.
There is till a heaviness in my stomach, I get full quickly and feel rather large, like my belly is huge, but weightiness is not in my whole being/body like it was early in the proving. It is more just in my stomach.
Abdomen: Was very sore l. shoulder and upper abdomen all around, tight diaphragm-felt better to belch.
I ate too much and the nagging twinge in my upper abdomen got really tight and sore.
Feeling solar plexus is heavily involved. It is tight and restricted, everything seems to revolve around it.
Stitch in abdomen tight, painful, annoying.
20 h. Abdomen stitch sore.
All day my abdomen felt tight and distended. The stitch at the top feels like a sore tendon-strained? I used ice instead of heat to see if it would feel better. No change.
Rectum: Have diarrhea. Very watery. Tried to eat some toast…moments after eating I need to RUN to the bathroom. Feel nauseous. Cramps come and go, not sure what better for…..
For me, yes , this is atypical when I get diarrhea. It was quite forceful. I was extremely nauseous and crampy. I omitted once, tons and violent in it delivery. I was really restless all night up most of it running to the bathroom but yes, I am better now today so all in all it started around 3ish yesterday and feel better this morning. I am weak and food is not appealing but the nausea is over and just a little cramping. Not fun!!!
Another symptom I have had and has gotten < as time has moved on is constipation. I am going everyday but as we have been progressing through the days of this remedy my stools have gotten harder & harder. It is like trying to pass cement! I have the urge everyday and I go everyday but it is difficult and there is some straining. The stools have changed from long and hard to what my mother would call “marbles” but these marbles are very difficult to pass.
Our dog had diarrhea, in our daughters room, first bowel accident ever.
Stool: Soft stools since day one.
Stool olive green.
Chest: Breast tenderness
Needless to say two hours after I gorged myself I had intense chest pain. The pain ran from my heart to l. ear. Ache was a sharp tearing pain and an ache at the same time. I felt panicked and almost called you. Once I burped twice I was fine.
Morning sometime-noticed left breast has been tender on and off the past few days.
21 h. sharp pain in chest on left side (not totally unusual)
Morning-both breasts feel full and tender. Did I mention that this is unusual for me-the only times I have had sore breasts is when I am pregnant (which I am not).
Morning , both breasts tender, annoying feeling-bothersome.
Cough: I started coughing hugely I coughed so hard my head hurt. I got really dizzy and floating and I had to get off the highway as soon as I could.
Back: Tightness around left side of neck with numbness coming up head to ears. Right neck in back, same slight pain.
Base of neck sore tender neck base of head sore, want a quick massage, want deep pressure rub on neck head, scalp
Pain radiating down form lower left back to heal. Lasting. Turned into aching/dull pain, pulsing a bit. 15.45 h. really hurting, lots of pulsing or humming all the way down while standing or sitting.
> laying down with legs in the air. 18 h. back still humming.
Woke up with a very sore back burning all over lower back. Stretched out on hard floor feels better.
19.30 h. reading to daughter in bed, lots of cramping on left side of body (side, hip to ribs) shoulders, upper back sore but most likely just from hauling loads of gravel and dirt to our culvert in road that needed fixing yesterday. Back aches.
Neck and headache
Spine feels stiff and sore.
Back pain, an old symptom.
Right mid back pain.
Ache left side neck.
Ache to back of neck.
Soreness base of neck posterior ally.
At the very base of spine it was hurting and now pain has gone all the way from head to base of spine and now it is gone. It lasted 10-15 min and then was gone. Woke me at 1am. The pain was sharper and more compressed than the others had been. Left as suddenly as it came and now I feel the energy is not in me any more.
Extremities: Arch of L foot pain, squeezing, burning pain. Fingers swollen.
Ache above Left knee.
Pain running down left, back hip- focused like a string, sharp or biting.

And palms have been clammy and cool all day.
13:30 h. sting in right calf. Left upper arm, triceps, sore and left elbow sore.
Stayed under the warmth of the covers for some time. When I finally got up my fingers on both hands were swollen like cooking sausages! Huge and very white in appearance. I wondered if they got any larger would the skin split.
Swelling in fingers has gone away and they now feel stiff. Stiffness seems to reside in the middle joint.
Last night my lateral arm muscles, top of shoulders and nape of neck muscles were very sore. It felt like I had lifted weights the day before and my muscles were re-cooperating from the fatigue.
Both hands, stabbing pain in joint of thumb, where they attach to wrists.
Left thumb joint still pains, and the pain is spreading to include first two fingers. Left hand joint has been painful to use (out raking leaves) and useless for any lifting, even small weights like piles of leaves (I have used my father’s trick of using my arm to lift instead of my hand). Left knee weak-feeling, like it’s wobbly at the core.
19.30 h. left foot cramp. Thoughts: I thought about the strong pressure/pain and the tingling in my palms, as well as some cramping/plantar fascia of my left foot.
The thoughts were about stigmata. The itching and pain seems to drill into the palms in the center.
Right arm and left leg felt pulled, lame. Left shoulder not a lot of range of motion. Right knuckle really sore.
Late morning-notice that my left big toenail has been really sore
Walking on break, left large toe, sudden stabbing, radiating pain, like a pain explosion. Radiated upward into foot. Gone as suddenly as it came.

Woke several times due to Charlie horse in left calf.Left shoulder very sore this afternoon-need to move it, left hand as well-may be residual from the stumble Saturday night.
Forearms are hurting, old symptom. Left arm worse. Cold and numb feeling in legs and feet especially in right.
