Know Your Remedies: Pyrogenium (Pyrog.)

Common Names: Putrescent (rotting) meat.

General Information

Pyrogenium is a valuable remedy for septic states with offensive discharges. Knowing this, its 1870s ‘creation’ is not so surprising: chopped lean beef in water exposed to the sun for several weeks before being potentised. Fortunately, the potentisation process of homeopathy removes all traces of the source material so that the remedy produced, Pyrogenium, is a safe but highly effective energy remedy. Of equal interest is that today, we still draw from those first potencies produced 150 years ago.

Pyrogenium is known for treating severe infections with putrid and offensive discharges or secretions (stools, urine, sweat, breath, vomit, menses). Examples include types of typhoid fever, empyema (a collection of pus around the lungs), severe sinusitis, puerperal infection (infection following childbirth), blood sepsis, and more. Pyrogenium may also be helpful when there is a history of severe infection and the person either has “never felt well since”, or fails to respond to well-indicated remedies. Other symptoms include restlessness from aching, sore and bruised sensations, and exhaustion and weariness in spite of the restlessness. The person feels better for motion and warmth, and worse with coldness.

Important

While above self-limiting or acute complaints are suitable for home treatment, see your healthcare provider if symptoms worsen or fail to improve. Chronic or persistent complaints, which may or may not be mentioned above, require a different treatment and dosage protocol so are best managed by a qualified homeopath for good results.

Dosage Instructions (suitable for babies to adults)

For acute and self-limiting complaints, take one pill or five drops of the remedy every 30 minutes to 4 hours (30 minutes for intense symptoms, 4 hours for milder ones). Once an improvement is noticed, stop dosing and repeat the remedy only if symptoms return. If there is no improvement at all by three doses, choose a different remedy or seek professional guidance.
