Natrum Phosphoricum or Natrium and Phosphoricum separately?

Hello, I have a question, maybe somebody can help me. I wonder if there is any difference between taking Natrum phosphoricum and separately Natrum muriaticum with following Phosphoricum.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
While the separate elements do have some bearing on the kinds of symptoms a salt might show, many unique symptoms come from the two elements being combined in nature.

This means that Nat-phos is its own individual medicine, and cannot be replaced with Nat-mur or Phosphorous.

It is almost impossible to pick a medicine for yourself. In some ways homoeopathic prescribing for chronic states is like counselling - you cannot really do it alone. As you can see, reading the materia medicas may make you think you resemble lots of remedies - which shows that you cannot see what is really the problem. It takes an objective observer to see it clearly.

The state of Nat-phos is very different to Merc or to Argentum met. If you think you are all 3 of these, you definitely do not understand yourself well enough to prescribe. Most homoeopaths also cannot self-prescribe for their chronic state, no matter how long they have practiced.

For a chronic case, a practitioner may spend an hour or more taking the case in great detail, examining all levels of the person to find the nature of the disease. Often many pages of information is gathered and the homoeopath will sift through it looking for unusual, peculiar and characteristic symptoms that lead to a single remedy prescription (if they practice traditionally).

Thank you very much for answer. Yes, I know that it must be only one remedy and I actually tried many of them before came to Natr-Phosph.(it's a wrong way, but I have no choice) All others show 'side effects',which directed me to N-Ph. But, I read in books that some diseases can be treated with several remedies of different miasms. Is not it true?

Yes it is true that more than one remedy will help you. There is absolutely no doubt about that - many people will take different remedies from different homoeopaths and get different amounts of improvement from them.

However, these medicines must all still in some way fit the problem, and the problem must be understand well enough to make those prescriptions of similar remedies to help. Somewhere in there will be the Simillimum, the perfect fit or as close as we can get. The simillimum is powerful, transformative, and should always be the ultimate goal of any homoeopath. Of course, we may end up settling for just similars if we can't find it .

I would argue the point about different miasms, since my style of prescribing is to address only one, and when it is gone to see a person left with no miasmatic state. However many others will argue that there are many miasms in a person. Ultimately since a prescription should take miasm and state into account it shouldn't matter too much.
