Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Ferrum Phosphoricum in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
In the early stages of febrile conditions, it stands midway between sthenic activity of Aconite Aconite and Belladonna Bell, and the asthenic sluggishness and torpidity of Gelsemium Sempervirens Gels. The typical Ferrum Phosphoricum subject is not full blooded and robust, but nervous, sensitive, anaemic with the false plethora and easy flushing of Ferrum Met Ferrum. Prostration marked; face more active than GELS. The superficial redness never assumes the dusky hue of GELS. Pulse soft and flowing; no anxious restlessness of Aconite Acon. Susceptibility to chest troubles. Bronchitis of young children. In acute exacerbation of tuberculosis, a fine palliative of wonderful power. Corresponds to Grauvogl’s Oxygenoid Constitution, the inflammatory, febrile, emaciating, wasting consumption.
Ferrum Phosphoricum is the remedy for for first stage of all febrile disturbances and inflammations before exudation sets in; especially for catarrhal affections of the respiratory tract. Ferrum Phosphoricum 3x increases haemoglobin. In pale, anaemic subjects, with violent local congestions. Hemorrhages, bright from any orifice.
WORSE, at night and 4 to 6 a.m.; touch, jar, motion, right side.
BETTER, cold applications.
