( Ferrum Phosphoricum )
Ferrum phosphoricum , also called Ferrum phos or iron phosphate. it is a mineral compound of iron and phosphoros. Both elenments are present in the body independently, phosphorus contributes to bone and muscle health, and iron aids the exchange of oxygen in the blood. Ferrum phos is derived from mixing solutions of iron sulfate, phosphate, and sodium acetate. The resulting iron phosphate is ground with large quantities of lactose ( milk sugar ) to render it nontoxic. Homeopathic practitioners consider Ferrum phos good for patients who suffer from conditions characterized by low energy and anemia. When a patient exhibits a set of symptoms that matches the cataloged symptoms brought on by Ferrum phos, the homeopathic practitioner then prescribes it in an extremely dilute form. Ferrum phos is available in liquid and tablet form.
