Tissue Salt No 4 – Ferrum Phos – “Margaret Roberts” Tissue Salts for Healthy Living
Iron is contained in the haemoglobin of the blood and, to a great extent, in all the cells of the body except the actual nerves. But, the nerves are lined with a protective sheath – a connective tissue containing blood, which with its iron content is able to actually penetrate the cells to nourish them. Ferrum Phos. is able to strengthen the walls of the bloodvessels, specially the main arteries – the body’s freeways – and their ability to distribute fresh, oxygen-rich blood to the cells.
Foods rich in Ferrum Phos.
Spinach, lentils, radishes, onions, walnuts, strawberries, apples,lettuce,almonds, sesame seeds, leeks and garlic. Red meat and liver are also rich sources of iron and are best served grilled with lemon juice.
