PyrogeniumArtificial Sepsin, Pyrogen
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while very dilute Pyrogenium may help, unprocessed Pyrogenium may be best avoided.
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Pyrogenium in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
Pyrogenium was introduced by English Homeopathists, prepared from decomposed lean beef allowed to stand in the sun for two weeks and then potentised. The provings and most of the clinical experience have been obtained from this preparation. But, subsequently, Dr. Swan potentised some septic pus, which preparation has also been proved and clinically applied. There does not seem to be any marked difference in their effects.
Sixth to thirtieth and higher potencies. Should not be repeated too frequently.
