Sodium Phosphoricum in homeopathy: properties, benefits and uses (all you need to know)

What is sodium phosphoricum?

Sodium phosphoricum is used in homeopathy to treat indigestion with hyperacidity and acidic secretions. Typical symptoms are the feeling of emptiness in the abdomen and chest as well as vomiting and acid regurgitation.
Those affected feel cravings for spicy or salty foods and fried eggs.

Because of its ability to convert uric acid into urea, sodium phosphate can help against gout or the formation of kidney and bladder stones. If the cause of neurodermatitis is related to excess uric acid, it can also be used here. In addition, the detoxifying effect of sodium phosphate helps skin problems such as acne, pimples and blackheads to subside.
