E-Class 17 – No. 5 Potassium Phosphate Part 3 – When Life’s a Bit Grey


This week

When toxins aren’t eliminating from the body well, or you are feeling down, life can look a bit grey. This week we look at

  • Facial Signs for No 5. Potassium Phosphate (Kali Phos)
  • How to use Kali Phos cream

Your references for this week are

  • Blue Book Facial signs p 32-33
  • The Clinical Science of Biochemic Medicine Part 2 Kali Phos, p33-37

Facial Signs of Potassium Phosphate

Ash Grey

The face can be Ash grey colour from the inner to the outer corner of the eyes.

You may also see this on the upper lip and chin. Sometimes this may look like a moustache.


In some people this grey colour can have the appearance of the person being “unwashed” or apathetic. Their mental state may be described as “absent”. This is sometimes seen in their eyes as if “no one is home” – a vague, not really focusing on you, look in their eyes.


Sunken Temples

Sunken Temples can indicate a severe potassium Phosphate deficiency.


Case Study – Global Transient Amnesia and Hair Loss


In this case, I first recognised the sunken temples.

She also showed us signs of hair balding in the temple area.

She then went on to tell us an amazing story of Kali Phos.

Several years ago, she had a very sudden case of Global Transient Amnesia. One minute she could remember, knew who she was, and the next she could not remember anything. She was taken to hospital where the medicos were perplexed. They don’t really have any way to help these cases.

A friend heard what had happened, so arrived at the hospital with Kali Phos. Within moments of taking Kali Phos, she said it was like the lights went on, and she could remember again.

Several months later, she noticed that her hair was starting to fall out in her temple area. I asked if there had been anything particularly stressful happen prior to the attack of Global Transient Amnesia. She said yes, there had been 3 significant events.


Based on facial signs and some more history, I prescribed Kali Phos and Silica. After just a couple months, she excitedly told me about her hair starting to regrow with the treatment.



Kali Phos Cream


In “Facial Diagnosis”, Peter Emmrich says Kali Phos cream “strengthens the heart muscle, calms down the nerves of the heart, relaxes cardiovascular action, therefore possibly reduces heart rhythm disruptions, nervous palpitation, and heart stitches”. Rub the cream on the chest and heart several times per day.


Wounds that heal badly

If a wound wont heal up, it often becomes infected. In this case use the cream up to the edges of the wound. Dab the wound with a soft muslin cloth soaked in water containing Kali Phos tablets, several times per day.


Consider Kali Phos in chronic conditions with putrid, stinky secretions, and cell decay. Bowel motions are also likely to send away anyone who wanted to go to the bathroom afterwards, as excrement is often putrid.

Other uses

Calf cramps, vein cramps, and neuralgia

After a stroke, use the cream on areas that are paralytic, or not moving.

Diphtheria and polio

Loss of hair – as we spoke earlier, use the cream or use a soaked flannel as a compress. This helps with hair loss of the head, eyebrows, or beard. You can also apply a cloth with cream during the night.

Exercise 1 – Look out for the colour grey

Different people respond to stress in different ways. Typically, they will go into their predominant mode of Fight, Flight or Freeze. In Fight mode, someone is likely to get angry or irritable for example. In Flight mode, they will become anxious, and shy for example. In Freeze mode, they may procrastinate and feel sluggish.

Read through the General signs and symptoms for Kali Phos on p34. Create a list which symptoms a person might present with if they were in Fight mode, Flight mode or freeze mode.

Exercise 2 – Different causes of stress

What are different causes of stress?

Make a list of different causes of stress, and write examples for each of the causes. Send them through to me when you have completed them.
