Majority of the herbal medications are derived from some kind of insect or plant. However, the herbal medicine pyrogenium is prepared from meat. This homeopathic remedy is used to cure an assortment of symptoms, such as problems of the blood.

Dr. Drysdale was the first to introduce pyrogenium into homeopathy way back in 1880. Pyrogenium was prepared by mixing beef with water and allowing the mixture to remain as it is for around three weeks. This mixture was filtered to leaving behind a clear amber hued liquid known as sepsin. Subsequently, sepsin was blended with glycerine and was called pyrogen.

Dr. Drysdale wrapped up by saying that when pyrogen is administered in a large dosage, it results in changes in the blood and tissues similar to those of blood poisoning following any lesion. On the contrary, smaller dosages of pyrogen facilitated complete recovery from problems related to the blood.

Several evidences as well as majority of the clinical trials have been acquired from this medical preparation. However, later on, Dr. Swan had rendered latent power (potentize) a number of septic pus - a preparation that has also been proved as well as applied clinically. Interestingly, there does not appear to be any distinct difference between the effects of these two dissimilar preparations.

It has been established that the homeopathic medicine pyrogenium is a wonderful cure of all septic conditions that are accompanied by extreme restiveness. It has also been proved that pyrogenium is an amazing and dynamic homeopathic antiseptic in treating septic fevers, particularly puerperal or conditions related to childbirth.

This homeopathic medicine may be extremely useful and effective in treating conditions, such as hectic typhoid; typhus (also known as typhus fever); diphtheria (a contagious ailment caused by the bacillus Corynebacterium diphtheriae and distinguished by the development of a false membrane in the air passages, especially the throat); ptomaine poisoning (food poisoning believed to be caused by ptomaine); poisoning by sewer gas; dissecting wounds, incessant malaria and aftermath of any miscarriage.

All these conditions and associated symptoms call for the administration of the homeopathic medicine pyrogenium. All types of bodily discharges by people suffering from such conditions are dreadfully unpleasant. Such bodily discharges may include vomiting, diarrhea, menstrual bleeding, lochial discharges (fluid discharges after childbirth) and even breathing.

Such people experience extreme pain and violent burning sensation when they have abscesses. They may also have constant complaints that may be as old as the septic conditions themselves. In addition, such patients may also be faced with the hazards of heart failure in zymotic (a condition related to or caused by fermentation) and septic fevers. As aforementioned, they may also experience symptoms of typhoid and influenza.

As discussed above, the primary health condition for which the homeopathic remedy pyrogenium is used most frequently is to treat blood poisoning and related symptoms. This homeopathic medicine has the potential to provide relief as well as cure symptoms like cold sweats, high fever, irregular pulse rate as well as restiveness.

In addition, pyrogenium has the aptitude to relieve common pain, while physical injuries as well as pains too can be alleviated by administering this homeopathic medicine. Pyrogenium solution is especially useful for treating ulcers, which are predominant among the aged people.

In conventional medicine, people enduring these symptoms would generally be treated with penicillin or other comparable medicines that are able to fight infection. In homeopathy, pyrogenium is usually prescribed for patients who have an enduring history of sepsis and have not recovered from the condition completely.

Mild lesions as well as inflammations too can be cured using pyrogenium solution. In addition, this is considered to be among the most effective remedies for bacterial infections.

In addition to the above mentioned conditions and associated symptoms, the homeopathic remedy pyrogenium is also effective in curing problems of the liver, the kidneys, bowels, urinary tract, gallbladder and lungs. It may be noted that this homeopathic medicine is also prescribed to treat skin disorders.

Particular types of fevers can also be cured by administering pyrogenium - for instance, ptomaine fever, typhoid fever and any other fever that develop bit by bit. In fact, this homeopathic medicine has also been found to be effective in treating sinusitis and nasal congestion.

Besides, additional problems related to the nose, including headaches, burning sensations and/ or discharges may also be cured using this homeopathic remedy. Significantly enough, pyrogenium has also been given to pets suffering from high fever, discharges or weak pulse rate.

Here is a word of caution. Taking large doses of pyrogenium or existence of the substance in excessive amounts in the body may result in severe health problems. In fact, taking large doses of this medicine may cause blood damage similar to poisoning of the blood.

It may be noted that the use of pyrogenium ought to be stopped in case the patient experiences a deterioration of the symptoms or if his/ her condition does not show any sign of improvement even after days of using this homeopathic medication. In addition, pregnant women and nursing mothers should essentially seek medical advice before using this homeopathic remedy.

While pyrogenium is generally available in liquid form, the patients are mostly prescribed the pellet or tablet form of the medication. Generally, the pellet and tablet forms of this homeopathic remedy dissolve easily in the mouth. It is essential to take the medicine doses within 10 minutes of taking a meal.

Moreover, this homeopathic medicine ought to be stored in a cool and dry place with the bottle containing it being adequately sealed. It may be underlined that any form of pyrogenium medicine that is available without a seal or with a kaput or tampered seal should never be used.

From Mary Kings - Apr-02-2015
I get regular abscess in the genital area, always very painful and inflamed. Last time I went to the "normal" doctor who said: this looks very bad, you need very strong antibiotic and penicillin at the same time!! Of course I refused to accept this and I got in contact with my homeopath who gave me a very high potency, 50m of Pyrogenium. After 3-4 days the abscess was almost gone.

My wife after angio/aortagram/several scans /mris/was diagnosed as ailing with abdominal aorta arteritis, involving near 100% blocks, including both femoral arteries and common iliac artery, in addition to a major block in left subclavian artery. She was advised a Teflon graft for infra renanal aorta as well both femoral bypass. However at puttaprthi I was discouraged get her operated.
They doubted surgical feasibility calling it as takayasu arteritis and that she may try alternatives. I was explained by doctor that she is thriving on collaterals and she better try walking and she used vasodilators, and blood thinners for almost 15 years like Fluxum injections (sodium heparin, Acitrom 2mg, persantanin 100 mg, daflon 500mg/etc) for over 15years besides several other supportive therapies.
She was also tried steroids like wysolene, prednisolene, etc. but she developed severe reactions but had to stop. Since year she is on homeopathy; the practisioner/philonthropher/non commercial/ is treating her over year. With some pyrogenium related drug, she is fairly doing well. At least her ESR which used to be around 100/1hour is now around/below 20 mm.
