Mag Phos And Cramps
You’re in the pool and suddenly you’re in terrible pain. Cramps in feet are the bane of so many swimmers. Or you’re fast asleep and you are jolted awake with pain in your calves – yes, cramps again. Or again, you suffer from cramps during periods month after month. And most would scoff at the idea that a few sugar pills will bring relief in minutes – sometimes even in seconds. That is the power of Mag Phos. All it takes is a bottle of these pills carried along in your swimming bag or kept at your bedside table. For women, a bottle in your handbag is a great idea.
There are physical, mental and emotional symptoms that call for the tissue salt Magnesium Phosphoricum or Mag Phos for short.
The pain that a deficiency of this tissue remedy brings with it can be sharp and acute. It isn’t usually a dull, nagging pain. It is the kind of pain that is worse from a jar but better from gentle, firm pressure or from heat. Besides cramps, Mag Phos is also very useful in infants’ colic where three or four doses that are given at intervals of ten minutes bring about immense relief to a suffering baby.
Mag Phos also relieves the pain of a sudden toothache or a sudden headache with shooting pains. The pain that calls for Mag Phos is sudden and lightning-like. Any dull ache needs another remedy. Where Mag Phos has proved of immense use is during labor where it eases the pain and facilitates an easy delivery.
This tissue remedy has also been used in cases of paralysis in the early stages with a lot of success. It is also used to ease the intensity of an epilepsy attack where the liquid is used to moisten the tongue of the patient in case the pills go down the wrong way and cause choking.
Twitching in the face or shooting pains in the face are also relieved by Mag Phos. Anything that smacks of spasms and convulsions calls for this salt. However, it must be noted that very often, Mag Phos will act as a palliative – while it relieves, it might not cure. This could be due to the fact that the patient will keep needing this salt at various times and spasms and cramps are the body’s way of reminding you of its needs.

*It helps to stop hiccoughs.
*It’s a great remedy for musicians and people who type to relieve the pain in the joints of the fingers and the wrist.
