Does anyone know if there is an alternative to taking iron tablets my level is too low to increase enough just Ruth iron rich foods?

Any help hugely appreciated

I am 37 have had type 1 diabetes since 22 months old

I had a stroke last year which left me severely disabled

I am currently working on physio she rehab and have some movement back in my leg but not my arm low iron is making me dizzy confused and extremely tired but I don't react well to iron tablets so I am desperate for an alternative and wondered if there might be a homeopathic remedy that would help?

You were told to take Iron Phosphate (Ferrum Phos) in a potency of 3x to aid your iron levels. I myself would promote the use of a 12x potency as Iron isn't dissolved water. If you cannot get the 12x then go for a 6x. The 3x is closer to taking the actual substance than the other potency levels.

When dealing with anemia one shouldn't solely focus just on Iron. You should also be looking at addressing the following:
Calc Phos 6x, Kali Ars 6x, Kali Dichrom 12x, Mang Sulf 12x, Nat Mur 6x and Zinc Mur 12x.

(You also find it interesting that both Ferrum Phos and Zinc Mur are useful in prevention and treating stroke along with others such as Calc Fluor, Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Mag Phos and Silica). Now you'll note that Kali Phos, Mag Phos, Mang Sulf, Silica and Zinc are useful for dizziness along with Alum, Kali Sulph, Nat Sulph and Kali Iod, From a diabetic view the following are noted as Nat Mur, Mang Sulf, Zinc Mur and Kali Dichrom along with others such as Nat Sulph, Mag Phos, Nat Phos, Silica, Selenium and Nat Bicarb, From a confusion side you would use Kali Ars and Zinc along with others such as Calc Fluor, Kali Phos. So I think you'll soon see what type of mineral salts your body is lacking and needing based on your numerous symptoms.

Iron supplementation by Iron tablets both from doctor or health food store is nothing less than POISON which should never enter the body. You would do far better with the old traditional herbal formula known as Floradix although most dont prepare the store bought versions like the old version but it does work well for those who use it.


Iron rich foods are fine but if the digestive system isn't working correct and the cells don't accept the food sources then what's the point? This is where the potentized mineral salts come into play as they open up the cell so they can accept the nutrient value to create the specific energy/frequency needs produced and as a result of a mineral. Minerals are key to health, it doesn't matter how many vitamins one takes, if there's a lack of minerals then the body will crumble. The Ferrum Phos 12x will allow the body to utilize and absorb the iron into the cell as needed.

If Udaya would like to comment on my comments then he's welcome

I fully agree with you except for the fact that Ferrum Phos 3X is time tested potency for increasing the haemoglobin particularly in combination with Lecithinum 3X. I personally is averse to use of lower potency for the reason that they may contain the toxic presence which the higher potency will certainly have removed in the dilution process; the very reason why the homeo medicines do not have side effects and may have aggravation in lowest of potencies. As far as the X potencies mentioned are concerned, most of them falls under bio chemic salts and therefore is supplementary and complementary in promoting natural iron assimilation inter alia their other functions. Where Ferritin and Hemosederin has a say there material or near material doses of Ferrum would prove toxic to fatal.

The cell salts are offered in the homeopathically potented dilutions 6X and 12X, sometimes also in 3X.
But what does this potency mean?

Many people know, that the potention has something to do with dilution.

But there is a lot of confusion, when people hear, that the remedies should be stronger, the more diluted they are.

Homoeopathic Potency

The potented abilities have their origin in the homoeopathy.
Nevertheless, with the Schuessler cell salts the potency are differently used than in the homoeopathy.

However, first some explanations about homoeopathic potencies.

The homoeopathic potencies are not simply diluted, but the dilution-process occurs gradually step by step.

On one part of the source substance (active substance) 10 or 100 parts of the dilution substance (i.e. ethanol or lactose) are used for each step.

The source substance and the liquid dilution substance are shaked for a while until they are very good combined. If solid insoluble substances are used, they are grinded with lactose thoroughly.

In the next step the dilution by 10 or 100 is repeated. This goes on again and again.

If the dilution is made with 10 parts in each step, the potency is called with a "X" behind the number of the steps.

The potency 6X was diluted 6 times with ten parts.

The relation between the source substance and the thinner is 1:1.000.000.

On 1 gramme of source substance comes 1 tonne of thinner (i.e. lactose).

The theory in the homeopathy says, that a remedy is stronger the more it is potented (diluted).

This theory doesn't fit to the scientific view. It is a subtle mechanism.

Potented cell salts

As the cell salts are a kind of spin-off from the homeopathy, it is logical, that the cell salts are offered in potetend form as well.
The reason why the cell salts are potetend is, nevertheless, another than in the homoeopathy.

To be able to understand the basic idea of Dr. Schüssler, one should know that Dr. Schüssler worked on the base of the scientific knowledge of his time. His theory is based on a scientifically oriented modell of the past.

Therefore it was no esoteric concept, what was developed by Dr. Schüssler, but a remedial method which is founded on modern and academically of the 19th century.

In the meantime, the natural sciences are much further than at that time, and, hence, some ideas of Dr. Schüssler have turned out not to be academically correct. Nevertheless, this does no harm to the effectiveness of his remedial method. Nowadays only the explanation, why the cell salts help, must be discovered again.

An essential basic idea for the cell salt concept is the knowledge, that mineral salts are strongly changed by the digestive canal chemically. In this changed form they often can't be taken up by the body in sufficient amounts.

Therefore there may be a lack of minerals in the body cells, in spite of sufficient mineral salts come by the food.

How is it possible, that the mineral salts can reach all the body cells?

The idea of Dr. Schüssler was, that by potenting a mineral salt, it can be split so far, that every single molecule is standing alone, surrounded completely by the thinner.

Thereby it should be possible,k that the mineral salts are taken up by the epithelium cells of the oral mucosa to reach from there directly to the blood stream and to the body cells. The digestive systeme ist ommited by this way of intaking.

Nowadays one knows, that it is not possible to split the salts down to molecule size.

But the cell salts are still taken up by the oral mucosa and are delivered directly to the blood stream.

It is not at all necessary that the mineral salts are given as single molecules. It is enough that they have been split in tiny small servings.

Standard potencies of the cell salts

The cell salts are usually used in low potencies of the X row.
The current potencies of the cell salts are: 3X, 6X and 12X.

Dr. Schüssler himself used preferentially the power of 6X.

Sometimes one can read that Dr. Schüssler advised to use always at least the potency 6X with water-dissolvable source substances.

With the substances which are not water-dissolvable one should use the potency 12X.

From this idea the standard potencies are developed.

The standard potencies are the typical potencies in which the cell salts are mostly offered.

These are the standard potencies of the basic cell salts:

No. 1. Calcium fluoride 12X
No. 2. Calcium phosphate 6X
No. 3. (4) Iron phosphate 12X
No. 4. (5) Potassium chloride 6X
No. 5. (6) Potassium phosphate 6X
No. 6. (7) Potassium sulphate 6X
No. 7. (Cool Magnesium phosphate 6X
No. 8. (9) Sodium chloride 6X
No. 9. (10) Sodium phosphate 6X
No. 10. (11) Sodium sulphate 6X
No. 11. (12) Silica 12X
No. 12. (3) Calcium sulphate 6X
Nevertheless, according to other sources Dr. Schüssler advises also lower potencies.
product tips
In his main work he writes:

"All materials indissoluble in water must be brought to at least on the sixth step of the decimale thinner scale; in water to dissolvable ones can also penetrate the mentioned epithelium cells in lower dilutions."


The potency 12X becomes, as already mentioned, applied as a standard potency with the mineral salts which are not dissolvable in water.
These are the following salts:

No. 1. Calcium fluoride 12X
No. 3. (4) Iron phosphate 12X
No. 11. (12) Silica 12X
Also the additional cell salts are mostly used in the potency X12.
Moreover, there is another concept on how to deside which potency to use. This is based on the kind of disease that should be treated by the cell salts.

For this you can remember:

For chronic diseases and diseases of the psyche the power 12X is suitable very well.


The potency X6 is the most used potency of the Schuessler cell salts.
It is the standard potency for 9 of the 12 cell salts.

These nine salts are all water-dissolvable salts.

In view of the treated diseases you can remember:

For acute diseases the potency X6 fits well.


Though the potency 3X does not belong to the standard potencies of the cell salts, it is still applied for different reasons.
For the potency 3X one should consider that it is relatively material, i.e. 1 gramme of mineral salt is included in 1 kilogramme 3X to cell salts.

With harmless salts, as for example No. 8 (9) Sodium chloride (cooking salt), the power 3X also is still a strong thinner.

But with the salts which are toxic in large quantities one must be absolutely careful by the use of the potency 3X.

For example, the cell salt No. 4 (5) Potassium chloride one should apply in the potency 3X not in large quantities. Otherwise, sensitive people could get absolutely unspecific side effects.

The following reasons and occasions speak for application of the cell salts in the potency 3X:

Very acute illnesses:
If an illness is very acute, the potency 3X can be sometimes very helpful.
With a bath one needs a lot of cell salts. By use of the potency 3X the amount of the required tablets can be considerably reduced. In 3X 1 to 10 tablets are already enough for a proper bath.
Substitution therapy:
If one wants to use the cell salts as a substitution therapy for the cover of the mineral substance need, the power 3X is suited. This is interesting above all when one does not want to suck hundreds of tablets daily, what is necessary with high-level dosage in 6X and 12X. More infos: Substitution therapy and mineral substance need cover.
Schuesslers cell salts for horses:
Because horses are so big, they also need a lot of cell salts. In the power 3X one can reduce the number of the given tablets.
Active substance amount and dosage

Official recommendations to the dosage of the cell salts doesn't make any difference between the potencies.
If one sees the cell salt tablets as a bearer of "active substances", this may seem illogical. Since the higher the potency, the less "active substance" is included in the tablets.

Nevertheless, the cell salts are not comparable with vitamin tablets or medical drugs with which one takes a certain active substance amount to cover an agreed and known need.

Though the idea that one can cover his mineral substance need only with cell salts is represented by several enthusiasts, but it is without scientific and computational bases see: Mineral substance need cover).

Only in the potency 3X one can assume appreciable active substance amounts. With this potency one should consider the "materiality" of the preparation with the dosage.

With the potencies 6X and 12X the impact is rather fine-etheric.

Hence, the same dosage is recommended, regardless of the potency.

The recommended dosage depends rather on the respective doctrine which clings to the treating cell salt specialist.

The daily dosage sways from 1 tablet per day up to more than 100 tablets per day.

To me I would have thought 3x was more of an issue than a 12x which is diluted much further and thus less chance of material? Then we have to take into consideration that iron doesn't dissolve in water unlike other substances? I'm confused who's thinking the wrong way here?

Re:Homeopathic treatment for anemia please help asap By: 2tuff

The 3x would be more likely to increase the iron levels in the body but this is probably more from a material point of view compared to the 6x and 12x working most definitely via allowing full cell assimilation. Think of 3x as more of a material potency and this is why it's often used with large animals and mammals such as Equus where it is safer even with the more dodgy mineral salts. It's not really advisable for humans to take various mineral salts in the 3x potency except in powerful acute issues whilst the 12x potency is far more suitable for chronic ailments.
