Composition: Calcarea Phosphorica 3X, Ferrum Phosphoricum 3X, Magnesia Phosphorica 3X, Natrum Sulphuricum 3X
Understanding the Composition:
Calcarea Phosphorica 3X: This tissue salt helps to promote healthy cellular activity. It is an important remedy for children to encourage normal growth and development. This salt is also a constituent in gastric juice and saliva, therefore aids digestion and assimilation.
Ferrum Phosoricum 3X: Helpful when there is colic during menstration, with heat, flushing of the face and a quickened pulse.
Kali Phosphoricum: Colic in the hypogastrium with ineffectual urging to stool. Bending double ameliorates patient. Abdomen is distended with gas.
Magnesia Phosphorica 3X: As the anti-spasmodic biochemic salt, Magnesia phosphorica plays a crucial role in the prevention of colic. A deficiency of this tissue salt results in the nerve fibres contracting causing spasms and cramps. This salt is required to ensure rhythmic and coherent movement. Helpful for children with flatulent colic who tend to draw up their legs. The pain forces patient to bend double, symptoms are better from friction, warmth, and belching of gas. Colic in the umbilical region, muscular contractions, remittent colic and cramp-like pain. Gallstone colic.
Natrum Sulphuricum 3X Flatulent colic beginning in the region of the right groin. Bilious colic with a bitter taste in the mouth. Greyish or brownish-green coating of the root of the tongue, pain in the abdomen and small of the back as if bruised. There is a much flatulence which is worse when patient is confined. Constipation is also involved.
