Phosphorus may help relieve symptoms associated with upper respiratory complaints such as sore throats, asthma, loose, dry, spasmodic coughs, hoarseness and bronchitis. It may be helpful for vomiting and heartburn. In Phosphorus individuals, there is a bleeding tendency leading to nosebleeds, bleeding gums, heavy periods, bruising, and clotting disorders, which can result in anaemia. In the traditional literature the remedy often suits people who crave cold drinks, love company and have many fears such as fear of thunder, storms, twilight, the dark, ghosts and the unknown.
Phosphorus may also be helpful for your pet for vomiting where there is thirst for large quantities of water, but as soon as the fluid becomes warm in the stomach it is vomited back up. If food is brought back up, this happens soon after eating and is returned in large amounts and is mostly undigested. Phosphorus may also be helpful with bleeding or haemorrhage from any cause including tooth extractions or wounds, (given on the way to your Vet). Animals that respond well to this remedy generally are bouncy and bright, wanting affection and company but can have a fear of thunder and other sudden noises such as fireworks. Phosphorus can be quite useful in dealing with these fears.

How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is based on ‘like cures like’. The remedy contains very diluted quantities of plant, animal or mineral substances that are refined and transformed into remedies with remarkable restorative properties. The remedy contains the “energy” of the substance and this stimulates the body’s own natural healing forces to alleviate the symptoms and bring about a return to health.
Homeopathic principles should be applied when using this remedy. Always read the product label. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner or vet promptly.
