Biochemic medicine during convalescence :
During the period of recovery, there is a lack of certain tissue salts in the system, with the ever-present possibility of relapse. It is, therefore, important to supply the deficient tissue salts, thus shortening the convalescent period and hastening the return of normal strength and vigor.
The principal remedy to restore the quality of the blood, to stimulate the digestive processes and to tone up the system generally. Use 3 X five grains three times a day.
In alternation with Calcarea Phos to oxygenize the blood. Here also use 3X every morning and afternoon. Not at night. (Ferrum Phos. used at night causes sleeplessness, use first thing in the morning).
Should there be nervous or mental symptoms or languor, it should be given.
Should the debility result in repeated exposures to cold and coryza at the slightest change of weather and sneezing, perspiration on the head and foul smelling perspiration on foot, feed Silicia 12X one does every morning for a week. (Do not continue it longer. Silicia patient cannot uncover his head without suffering. A sure sign of Silicia having acted is, no sneezing or suffering even with head uncovered, particularly during sleep).

Yes, A Patient Once consulted me For Insomnia, On case taking I was surprised when she told me that she was in habit of taking Kali Phos 6X 4 tablets at bed time from last 02 years, Which she was prescribed by A fellow Homoepath for 15 days, But due to lack of knowledge and desire for self medication she took for 02 years, She told that initially this drug helped her but now her condition has gone worse she has even take 8 tabs daily but it also did the reverse action. Later she got well by the Properly taken Homoeopathic treatment.
She was, in fact, supposed to have discontinued taking KP once she found relief from insomnia. It is an obvious result of self medication. Should it be reckoned as a case of aggravation caused by excessive and long term use of KP 6X?
Yes, She was kept on placebo for at least 1 month after withdrawal, she started feeling better but after one month her complaints became static Than I prescribed her the Similimum, and she got Okay.
Thank you for this excellent article, Dr. Verma.
I am wondering about a couple of things:
- How do you know when to us the 3x, 6x, or 12x?
- I had read the other day that the 3x potency was addictive. I have never learned that. Is it true?
- I have a couple of books on tissue salts: George Carey, and Skye Weintraub. Can you recommend any other that I should add to my library? (I did have Schuessler in my software program)
You can add BHATIA V. R., Influenza and its Homoeopathic Treatment book to your library.
