- General Information
Phosphorus for Health Professionals @ ods.od.nih.gov
- Phosphorus is a component of bones, teeth, DNA, and RNA
- Phosphorus in seeds is in the form of phytic acid, the storage form of
phosphorus. Because human intestines lack the phytase enzyme, much
phosphorus in this form is unavailable for absorption.
- Phosphorus and calcium make up hydroxyapatite
- In the United States, dairy products contribute about 20% of
total phosphorus intake.
- The absorption rate for the phosphorus naturally contained in food is
40%–70%; phosphorus from animal sources has a higher absorption rate
than that from plants.
- In infants, phosphorus bioavailability ranges from 85%–90% for
human milk to approximately 59% for soy-based formulas.
- Phosphorus is available in dietary supplements. Phosphorus in
supplements is usually in the form of phosphate salts (e.g.,
dipotassium phosphate or disodium phosphate) or phospholipids
(e.g., phosphatidylcholine or phosphatidylserine). Products typically
provide 10% or less of the DV for phosphorus.
- The bioavailability of phosphate salts is approximately 70%.
- High phosphorus intakes rarely produce adverse effects in healthy people.
- Antacids that contain aluminum hydroxide, such as Maalox HRF and Rulox,
bind phosphorus in the intestines.
- Taste and Smell
Sugars, Sweet Taste Receptors, and Brain Responses @ ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
- Sweet taste receptors are composed of a heterodimer of Taste 1 Receptor
member 2 (T1R2) and Taste 1 Receptor Member 3 (T1R3).
- Four morphologic subtypes of TRCs have been identified.
- Type I glial-like cells detect salty taste.
- Type II cells express G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) to detect
sweet, umami, and bitter tastes.
- Type III cells sense sour stimuli.
- Type IV cells likely represent stem or progenitor taste cells.
- Type II cells do not form traditional synapses with afferent nerve fibers.
Rather, these cells release ATP through hemichannels, which can then activate
purinergic receptors (P2N2 and P2X3) present on the cranial nerve fibers
innervating each taste bud.
- Type I cells degrade or absorb neurotransmitters.
Acid Stimulation (Sour Taste) Elicits GABA and Serotonin Release from Mouse Taste Cells
- Phosphorus and COVID-19
- Low Serum Calcium and Phosphorus in Detecting COVID-19 Patients @ pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
- Low calcium and low phosphorus are more prevalent in severe or critical
COVID-19 patients than moderate COVID-19 patients
- Calcium and phosphorus combined with lymphocyte count could obtain the best
discriminative performance for the severe COVID-19 patients
SARS-CoV-2: Influence of Phosphate and Magnesium @ journals.physiology.org
- SARS-CoV-2 may induce a cytokine storm that drains ATP whose regeneration
requires phosphate and Mg
- Symptoms observed in severe COVID-19 also fit well with those seen in classical
hypophosphatemia and hypomagnesemia
- "We, thus, argue that patients with COVID-19 should be monitored and treated
for phosphate and Mg deficiencies, ideally already in the early phases of infection."
PDF Version of the Article
- Chloroquine is typically supplied as a phosphate salt (12% P), and can
supply 10%-20% of the recommended dietary intake for phosphate.

- Antibiotics and Hearing Loss
Can Antibiotics Cause Hearing Loss @ healthyhearing.com
- Certain class of widely used antibiotics called aminoglycosides causes hearing loss.
- An ototoxic medication is one that has the side effect of damage to the cochlea
or auditory nerve, and possibly the vestibular (balance) system.
- "Currently, it's accepted that the price that some patients have to pay for
surviving a life-threatening bacterial infection is the loss of their ability to
hear," said Peter Steyger, lead author of the study and professor of otolaryngology,
head and neck surgery at OHSU.
- Anywhere from 20 to 60 percent of adults who are given aminoglycosides
experience some degree of hearing loss, from mild to severe.
Medicines that Cause Hearing Loss @ webmd.com
- Medicines that damage the ear and cause hearing loss are known as ototoxic
medicines. They are a common cause of hearing loss, especially in older adults
who have to take medicine on a regular basis. In most cases, hearing loss occurs
because the medicine damages the cochlea in the inner ear.
- Hearing loss caused by an ototoxic medicine tends to develop quickly. The
first symptoms usually are ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and vertigo.
- Commonly used medicines that may cause hearing loss include:
- Aspirin, when large doses (8 to 12 pills a day) are taken.
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen.
- Certain antibiotics, especially aminoglycosides (such as gentamicin,
streptomycin, and neomycin). Hearing-related side effects from these antibiotics
are most common in people who have kidney disease or who already have ear or
- Loop diuretics used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.
- Medicines used to treat cancer, including cyclophosphamide, cisplatin, and
- Smoking and Hearing Loss
Cigarette Smoking and Hearing Loss @ hear-it.org
- Smokers are nearly 70% more likely than non-smokers to suffer hearing loss,
according to a study including more than 3,000 people.
- The risk of hearing impairment often increases with the number of cigarettes smoked.
- In many cases, hearing problems increase proportionately with the intensity
and duration of exposure to cigarette smoke.
Effects of Smoking on Auditory System @ audiologyonline.com
- Conductive hearing loss was most prevalent in all subject groups
(age range 20-68 years of smokers).
- Overall, 6.1% of current and past smokers experienced conductive hearing loss
of at least a mild degree (>30 dB across the 0.25-8 kHz range).
- Smokers were also twice more likely to experience a mild sensorineural
hearing loss (>25 dB either in the low or high frequencies) compared to nonsmokers.
- The effects of pack years and aging were multiplicative.
- Smoking, age, and noise exposure together pose a greater risk for hearing loss
than each factor alone.
Smoking Your Ears, the Impact of Cigarettes on Hearing Loss @ audicus.com
- The prevalence of hearing loss among smokers is directly related to the number
of smoking years.
- First, the nicotine and carbon monoxide that result from smoking tighten your
blood vessels, including the ones in your ears. This restricts the blood flow and
thus the life-giving oxygen in the inner ear.
- Secondly, nicotine can affect the chemical messengers (or neurotransmitters)
in the auditory nerve.
- Thirdly, smoking unleashes free radicals in our bodies.
- Ear Candling
- Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
- Glue Ear
Glue Ear @ patient.info (good pictures)
- Auto-inflation puts back pressure into the nost, and may help to open the
Eustachian tube and allow better drainage of the fluid. This needs to be done
regularly until the fluid clears. You can get an auto-inflation kit called Otovent.
Discussion of Adult Glue Ear @ patient.info
"Yesterday I went to the doc and he tested my ears with a musical tuning fork.
I could barely hear it with my deaf ear and could mostly hear it with my "good"
ear. Then he put the tuning fork in the centre of my forehead and I could hear it
clear as a bell with my deaf ear ( first thing I had heard in weeks) and could
barely hear it with my "good" ear. Within seconds I was swallowing yucky stuff.
My ears continued to drain for 8 hours with 2 major mouthfulls and 2 very
significant dizzy spells."

- Hearing Loss
- Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL)
"Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL) is also known as sudden deafness.
It occurs when you lose your hearing very quickly, typically only in one ear. It
can happen instantly or over a span of several days. During this time, sound
gradually becomes muffled or faint. There are about 4,000 cases of SSHL
diagnosed every year in the United States. The condition most commonly
affects people between ages 30 and 60. Sudden hearing loss is sometimes
preceded by a loud popping sound. Other symptoms include dizziness, balance
problems, etc. Steroids are the most common treatment. They can reduce
inflammation and swelling. Your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics if an
infection is the cause of your SSHL. Audiometry tests can check your hearing
more thoroughly and precisely. An MRI scan may also be ordered to look for
any abnormalities in your ear, such as tumors or cysts. MRI takes detailed
pictures of your brain and inner ear, which can help your doctor find the
underlying cause of SSHL."

Dental Homeopathy (2004) @ britishhomeopathic.org
- For sensitivity:
- Hypericum because of its nerve injury healing properties is very useful after a root canal
- Magnesium phosphorus is often referred to as the “homeopathic aspirin”
- Plantago tincture rubbed around a tooth, or applied as a “toothache tincture” into a cavity
- For toothache:
- Throbbing pain will be relieved by Belladonna
- If heat brings on the pain, Pulsatilla will ease it
- If cold eases the pain, Coffea will help
- If clenching the teeth eases the pain, Staphisagria will help
- If rubbing the cheek over the tooth eases the pain, Merc sol will help
- Silica for toothache with swollen face and glands, abscess at root of teeth
- For abscess:
- If you are ever unfortunate enough to have toothache with a gum boil which is
red, swollen and throbbing, then Belladonna will bring relief.
- If, in the acute stage, the swelling from the abscess runs down into the neck,
Myristica is an absolutely magical remedy.
- When the abscess has occurred before and the condition is more chronic, then
Hepar sulph will quickly bring relief. It must be potency 6c. This is very important
as the higher potency will make the gum boil discharge through the skin. Potency 6c
makes the body’s lymphatic system drain the abscess.
Dental Homeopathy (2010) @ britishhomeopathic.org
- Abscess, Tooth
An Abscessed Tooth @ homeopathycenter.org
- Tooth felt like pressure, didn't react to hot or cold, gums were pink, and there wasn't
- Belladonna did not help
- Dentist said it was an abscess, and patient needed a root canal
- Patient took Hepar sulph 200C (6 pellets) a few times
- The teeth have a closed lymph system with very little circulation.
- Once an infection gets started, it's very hard to cure homeopathically.
- One of Hepar's main indicators in sensitivity to everything -- including pain.
- Belladonna is a good abscess remedy, but there is usually more heat associated with it.
- When someone says "toothache", I immediately think of Chamomilla, Hypericum and Mag phos.

Circulatory Problems @ britishhomeopathic.org
- When discussing homeopathic treatment, I use a 6c or 12c remedy twice daily
for physical symptoms only (e.g., varicose veins), and a 30c remedy for severe
problems (e.g., heart failure).
- Varicose Veins
- Since veins have thinner walls, they also have small one-way valves.
- Varicose veins occur when the valves fail and the veins stretch and contort.
- Pulsatilla is a very common remedy for varicose veins.
- A second choice for varicose veins would Calc carb.
- Another remedy for varicose veins is Calc fluor.
- A remedy for varicose veins nad piles is Hamamelis.
- Sulphur can be used where there is ulceration or "must scratch until it bleeds".
- Hemorrhoids are caused by the same problems as varicose veins, and constipation.
- Hamamelis, Calc flour and Arnica are excellent for hemorrhoids.
- If the skin of the anus is cracked (anal fissure), the person can feel violent
cutting pains after opening the bowels which can last for hours. Nitric ac can be
a real help.
- Hemorrhoids associated with constipation can respond to Nux vomica.
