phosphoricum is a common remedy that you can find at any of the health food stores that sells homeopathics.
Well with everything in this thread, it's very difficult to determine what is true, what is paranoia, what is panic, and what is straight
But with regard to iron being a row above silver, I'm not sure how you equate the two in that sense. There are a number of terrible conclusions
people may come to based on that logic. Mercury is just a row below silver, as is gold (which is toxic when it forms a salt, though harmless as a
metal.) You appear to be a pharmacist? I am not trying to attack you in any way, it's just that I have a heavy background in chemistry and equating
silver and iron like that is very bothersome to me - especially considering all of the transition metals that anyone is likely to encounter are found
in 3 rows. Silver is in the 2nd and is thus either in the same row or just one row away from so many things.
You sort of came in on the tail end of the conversation. Go back a few pages (about a hundred and fifty) and you'll see where I was coming from. When
I first put the flu symptoms into my repetorization software, ferrum phosphoricum came up as a pretty good fit for the Ukranian flu symptoms.
Yes, iron is not that closely related to silver compared to other minerals closer to silver in the 5th row, but the availability of remedies at the
health food store are limited. There are only a few number of phosphate salt remedies at the health food stores. One is phosphorus itself, and the
other is ferrum phosphoricum.
Of course, argentum nitricum is much closer to argentum metallicum or argentum phosphoricum, and argentum nitricum is available as a remedy in the
health food stores, but HE SPECIFICALLY ASKED ABOUT A REMEDY THAT WOULD GET INTO THE LUNGS THAT IS SIMILAR TO argentum phosphoricum AND IS READILY
AVAILABLE AT THE THE HEALTH FOOD STORES, but argentum nitricum doesn't have an affinity to the lungs the way that argentum phosphoricum does.
Ferrum phosphoricum is closer to argentum phosphoricum than argentum nitricum, AS FAR AS THE ABILITY TO GET INTO THE LUNGS, because of the phosphate
salt. Phosphorus would also be closely related to argentum phosphoricum. Plus, ferrum phosphoricum is a well known flu remedy, whereas argentum
nitricum is not.
But that is why I also gave him a list of other flu remedies.
I know my chemistry, but I also know my homeopathy. And homeopathically, two mineral remedies close to each other on the periodic table are more
likely to be closer to each other than remedies that are farther away from each other. To see where I'm coming from, read Jan Scholten's Minerals
and Homepathy books. They're quite fascinating, and really make the mineral remedies come alive.
