It has been quite a long time I did not write about Biochemic Schussler's remedies. Since an interesting situation occurs awhile ago, I would like to share a short one here. Few moments ago, I had tried the effect of Magnesia Phosphorica 6X on my 5 months old niece. I have been investigating the effect of this remedy since I found out about its existence during my course of study years ago.
Below is a short Synopsis of Magnesia Phosphorica (Mag. Phos)
Mag. Phos 6X is one of Schussler Biochemic remedies. It is the 8th remedy out of 12.
Mag. Phos' molecules are found in white fibres of our nerves and muscles. Nerves and muscles consists of strands of fibres with different colours. Each of it functions as a conductible power for certain functions. The white fibres are in fact control by the molecular function of magnesia cell salt. So when this salt deficiency occurs, the white fibres will contract and this is when spasms or cramps occur. How it works on stomach? When there is deficiency on the walls of the stomach where there are muscular tissue, the white fibres draw up and contract reducing the stomach cavity. Gas is then produced to react and prevent collapse, and by expansion produced a counter force.
Mag. Phos is a remedy suitable for muscles, bloated abdomen due to excess air, stomach cramps and other stomach related problems. It is a proven remedy to reduce the pain in menstrual cramps. From my years of implementing and experimenting its effect, for menstrual cramps, it works very well with Kali Phosphoricum. Apart from that, whenever you could feel that the body is lacking of proper blood circulation, it compliments well if taken with Ferrum Phosphate.
Even though sometimes you feel lack of energy and tired after a day of stress, Mag. Phos can be taken before sleep with Kali Phosphoricum or once in awhile with Calcarea Phosphorica.
My niece had been crying badly for nearly an hour and my family members suspected it has something to do with her stomach which had happened before. This is due to the fact that whenever they massaged her abdomen part, she tends to relax slightly. Therefore, I told my dad (who is also a Homeopathic Practitioner), that we should try Mag. Phos on her.
I had mixed Mag. Phos 6X tincture with a small portion of her eucalyptus oil and apply it on her stomach. While my dad mixed the crushed Mag. Phos globules into a plain drinking water. I then told my mum to apply it on her lips and let my niece sip it subtly. Mixing tincture in plain water is an alternative method to avoid choking for babies.
In less than five minutes, she kept quiet and doze off to sleep.
