TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
MAG PHOS can relieve the excruciating pain of cancer.
One’s chief use for MAG PHOS has been in the treatment of dysmenorrhoea. Single dose of the CM given anytime the patient happened to come up, not necessarily during the painful period, have cured for us, quite a number of cases, the indications being dysmenorrhoea, with violent abdominal pain, doubling the patient up and only relieved by heat.
Dr. M. L. Tyler, M.D.
In cases of Angina Pectoris, where immediate temporary relief has been obtained with Nitrites, but where there is still discomfort, MAG PHOS will often help. It should be given in hot water and I usually dissolve 10 tablets in a quarter glass of water and direct the patient to take a sip or a teaspoonful every, 5 or 10 minutes, until better.
Dr. Garth W. Boericke, M.D.
I am of the opinion that MAG PHOS is the best rejuvenator we possess. Moreover, in practice I have found it to cover the exhaustion and most of the painful ailments of which old people complain and now give it to any person who looks older than his or her years.
I find this remedy extremely useful in dysmenorrhoea in young girls. I also find this remedy very useful in toothache, which is worse from eating and drinking cold things, driving the patient into frenzy. It is also useful in cramps of the extremities, especially the calves during pregnancy. It also suits persons with writer’s cramps and it is useful in violin players with cramps in the fingers and the wrist.
