SODIUM PHOSPHATE-Na2HPO4 plus 12H2O.
This and the following sodium salts are two of Schussler’s remedies. Natrum phos, has had, amongst other proving one conducted but Farrington, but as the only symptoms that he speaks of in his Clinical Materia Medica are neither very nice nor very prominent, we will pass them by and confine ourselves to those symptoms having to do with an eases of lactic acid.
There is acid dyspepsia (178) and gastralgia, with flatulence, sour eructations and “vomiting of fluid as sour as vinegar” (Hering).
Schussler praises it highly in the vomiting of sour curdled milk and sour diarrhoea (59) of nursing infants and in marasmus (129) with these accompaniments, and Hering adds, “infants who are bottle fed,” the “suffering from excess of lactic acid, resulting from overfeeding of milk and sugar.”
I use natrum phos., 3d.
