Ferrum Phosphoricum And Fever
Iron Phosphate is the salt that is called for at the start of any fever. If given as soon as the fever symptoms start, it can very often bring the temperature down to normal. You usually need doses at very regular intervals – half an hour, maybe even fifteen minutes between doses when the fever is high. What Ferr Phos does essentially is to make sure that oxygen is carried to every part of the body. Ferr Phos is an essential element in the red blood corpuscles and it helps them to attract more of the oxygen from the air that we breathe in. This action is accelerated when there is an infection anywhere in the body. More oxygen means the blood is empowered to fight any outside attack and the toxins are quickly cleaned out of the system, bringing the body back into a state of balance and normalcy. It can be very effective very quickly for fever in children and pets.
There are physical, mental and emotional symptoms that call for the tissue salt Ferrum Phosphoricum or Ferr Phos for short.
Think Ferr Phos and think ‘first’ in the fight against any illness or disease. When the red blood corpuscles of the blood are made stronger, it means the body can be better oxygenated and this in turn means any attack can be better repulsed and any weakness better attended to. Ferr Phos is rarely prescribed for ailments that are chronic or long standing. It is of great help in the first stages of any ‘itis’ – be it laryngitis, bronchitis or tonsillitis. It also helps when there is a sudden earache that comes on, a sudden fever, nosebleed or sprain. You can progress to other tissue remedies after a dose of Ferr Phos has been given. It stops any internal bleeding and prevents inflammation. A patient who needs Ferr Phos usually has a red, flushed face.
A deficiency of Ferr Phos is one of the main causes for anemia. When there is sufficient Ferr Phos in the system, there is a better metabolization and absorption of iron. It’s a great tonic for women during their periods when the loss of blood makes them feel tired and run down. People who lack Ferr Phos usually have a craving for coffee and don’t like milk.
One of the strange things about Ferr Phos is that the lower potencies tend to keep you awake at night while the higher ones induce sleep.
*For urinary infections and cystitis, frequent doses of Ferr Phos will get rid of the fever as well as the pain and burning.
*Ferr Phos is a good pick-me-up when you feel lethargic and tired all the time, usually due to a lack of iron in the body.
