The Phosphoric Acid homeopathic remedy is not a commonly used remedy in homeopathy. However, it has many important uses when indicated. It’s used more primarily in fighting depression and is actually one of the top homeopathic remedies for it. 

As evident from its name, the remedy is derived from Phosphoric Acid, which is a colorless mineral commonly used in fertilizers and household items such as detergents.

The substance is completely safe to use in homeopathic form, as are all other homeopathic remedies.

Let’s now jump into what this remedy works for!

Lack of Social Success = Apathy & Depletion

The depression found in people needing Phosphoric Acid is very unique compared to other remedies. It is phosphoric acid homeopathic remedybasically an apathetic depression that depletes the individual of life and energy. 

In a healthy state, the person can very much have a Phosphorous personality type. The person can be very vivacious, talkative, and extroverted – in short a social “butterfly.” They are anxious individuals that desire to connect with others, crave relationships, and want those relationships to work in a certain way.

When they fail to achieve these social connections with one or more specific people, they become very disappointed. They struggled for so long to make it work, but to no avail!

There are many examples of this. This could be a parent trying to connect with their autistic child or with a drug abusive child, but with much difficulty. It could also be a sibling trying to get closer to another relative, but then the relative passes away.

You can also see this idea come about on a more minor scale. A teenager can feel apathetic and depressed from not being able to make friends, or they may feel disconnected from others while undergoing growth spurts.

The result has feelings of apathy, which then lead to mental, emotional, and then physical depletion, as we’ll soon see. The apathy of this remedy comes without irritability. This is the cause of their unique and bleak form of depression.

Result: Bleak Depression

While in this state of depression, they won’t have a desire for anything. They will have a “flat,” drained reaction to everything that happens around them. You won’t see them with much energy, especially if it comes with a strong prolonged grief or loss.

Physical Result of Their Depression
