Vitamin C as a Supplement to Prevent Illness

Vitamin C as a Supplement to Prevent Illness

Vitamin C as a Supplement to Prevent Illness 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

Vitamin C supplements are probably the best way to prevent common illnesses like colds and the flu.

However, most people don’t know that Vitamin C supplements can also help with other serious illnesses like cancer, lung disease, and heart disease. In fact, new studies from many of the leading medical institutions in the world continually indicate that Vitamin C, even in low doses, can give your life expectancy a major boost.

Most people may think that they get enough Vitamin C from the foods they eat, like vegetables and fruits, but they don’t. In fact, one-quarter of Americans don’t get the recommended daily amount of 60 milligrams of Vitamin C that their cells need to perform basic bodily functions.

The National Cancer Center urges people to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, which would supply from 200 to 300 milligrams of Vitamin C, but only 9% of the American population accomplishes this.

Vitamin C supplements are potent, water-soluble antioxidants that trap and disarm free radicals in the watery part of your body’s tissue. Vitamin C supplements also help replenish Vitamin E and help enzymes destroy other free radicals in your system. Free radicals are the toxic molecules that eat away at healthy cells and turn them defective, which over time can cause more serious diseases like cancer.

Over 120 studies show that Vitamin C supplements work as a form of immunization against cancer. It was found that people who consistently took Vitamin C supplements were only half as likely to develop cancer as those who didn’t. Vitamin C supplements were particularly effective on cancers of the stomach, esophagus, pancreas, cervix, rectum, and breast. In one study, doctors recommended taking 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams of Vitamin C supplements per day to effectively prevent cancer. This is far above the suggested daily dose recommended by the National Cancer Center, so anyone attempting this kind of regimen should talk to their doctor first.

Vitamin C supplements taken daily can prevent other kinds of conditions like heart disease.

The correct doses can suppress high blood pressure, raise good-type HDL cholesterol, clean deposits from artery walls, and reduce the chances of heart-attack-inducing vascular spasms.

Vitamin C supplements taken regularly can also reduce breathing problems like asthma, prevent periodontal disease, and improve the immune system.

Improving the immune system is the first thing that comes to mind for most people when they think about taking Vitamin C supplements. Of course, Vitamin C supplements do a great job of this, in addition to working on all the other disorders they prevent. Vitamin C supplements work with your immune system to gear up your body to fight infectious bacteria and viruses. Vitamin C supplements do this by boosting the white blood cells and raising the body’s level of antioxidants. Taking 500 milligrams of Vitamin C supplements per day during flu and cold season may prevent or at least lessen the likelihood of being ill during this time.

Vitamin C supplements work on so many levels to prevent disease.

However, Vitamin C may be plentiful in the foods you eat; it’s really the supplements that put you over the top when it comes to preventing disease and increasing the length and quality of life. Vitamin C supplements have been shown to help people who take them live about 6.3 years longer.

Fruit

Fruit removes mucus out of the body.

Fruit removes mucus out of the body. 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

Only foods that are foreign to the human body would cause mucus, and mucus is created from the mucosa to protect tissue and cells due to the acid-ash produced from the starch, proteins, dead animal tissue, and their mucus and pus-filled fluids.

Fruit removes mucus because the fruit is alkaline, astringent, and designed for the human vessel, which means when you start eating foods designed for you, the body wants to dump and get rid of waste.

Mucus in the body blocks the flow and pathways of eliminating metabolic waste.

Mucus locks in metals chemicals and creates a feeding environment for yeast, fungus, and parasites. Mucus cuts off circulation and impairs brain function.

Mucus and acids are the root cause of lymph stagnation, endocrine gland dysfunction, and damages are the elimination organs such as the kidneys, skin, and bowels. You don’t want excess mucus in the body, and a diet of fruit will be effective with pulling it out.

Fruits that do well with pulling out mucus are citrus, grapes, watermelon, and mangoes. Mucus will come out of the nose, ears, mouth, eyes, anus, vaginally, and by urine.

Vegetable matter is not astringent and energetic enough to pull out mucus like the fruits. Still, a strong Chlorophyll-rich green drink does have mucus-pulling abilities, and parasites, worms, fungus, and yeast don’t thrive in an alkaline body and hate the oxygen produced from a green drink.

Salads can act as a broom to loosen up impacted mucus and biofilm on the outer layer of the colon, but the mucus and interstitial waste worked out of the lymphatic system will be pulled out by the fruit and veggies, leafy greens, and green drinks are not going to be strong enough to loosen up any sticky sulfur that may be stagnant in the body from the antibiotic drugs and other foods or products that are heavy in sulfates that have entered the body.

Only you, my friend, can learn for yourself the power of an all-fruit diet when it comes to detoxification and pulling out debris and metabolic waste out of the body. Mucus will come out when you consume energetic electrical foods, and fruit being the highest form of energy and astringency makes it the best source of food to allow the body to drain and pull it out.

Fruits are the cleaners, and they can rebuild you after the body corrects itself from the damage that has been caused by consuming foods that damage it. Acid-forming foods are grains, beans, eggs, all meats, milk, and The starchy potato varieties.

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

The happiness hormones serotonin and oxytocin don’t only help fight depression. They also cut heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s risk by strengthening arteries, so nutrient-rich blood quickly reaches your organs.

Send some love.

Taking one minute to let someone know that you’re thinking about them can bring about an increase in your oxytocin production 

Take a scented soak.

Relaxing in a warm bath scented with rose, vanilla, jasmine, or lavender can keep your blood levels of serotonin and oxytocin elevated by soothing your brain’s anxiety center. And when your brain is relaxed, it needs less serotonin and oxytocin to function, so more of those hormones are available to cells in the rest of your body.

Take 5-HTP.

Taking 100 mg. of 5-HTP increased serotonin levels, improving mood, energy, immunity-and even fat-burning. Want to sleep more deeply? Taking 5-HTP 30 minutes before bedtime can help. Cutting calories a priority? Take 5-HTP 30 minutes before your biggest meal each day.

Consume protein at breakfast.

After a night of not eating, blood levels of amino acids- the building blocks of serotonin and oxytocin- are low. The fix: Eat a meal containing 2 oz. of amino acid-rich protein, such as eggs, meat, or cheese. It’ll rev the enzymes that keep serotonin and oxytocin levels up, cutting your risk of the blues and blood sugar woes 33%.

Eat berries and kale.

Eating two cups each of berries and leafy greens (like kale) weekly could up your serotonin levels. Both foods are rich in anthocyanins, nutrients that encourage your brain to produce and release this “happy” hormone.

Watch TV.

Getting caught up in a fun, romantic, or emotionally gripping program-enough to make you root for one of the characters- will send your oxytocin levels soaring. Your brain processes movies as if they’re happening, and the empathy you feel for a character stimulates oxytocin release.

Natural Remedies To Stop Thinning Hair

Natural Remedies To Stop Thinning Hair

Natural Remedies To Stop Thinning Hair 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

By age 50, two-thirds of us have thinner, more brittle hair. Thankfully, at-home remedies can stop it in its tracks and help reverse it if it’s already occurred! Here’s what may be causing your hair loss and how to fix it.

Wash your hair daily.

When scalp cells absorb testosterone, the waste product produced can damage follicles and trigger male pattern baldness, even among women, research shows. Most women cut back on them as their hair thins, hoping that handling their hairless will help. To fix, first, give your scalp a thorough shampooing daily. 

Up your iron intake.

Your ability to absorb iron can plunge after age 55 due to a gradual slowdown in the production of stomach acid and digestive enzymes-and one of the first signs of dipping iron levels in women is all over hair thinning. Eat four oz. of iron-rich beef, chicken liver, shellfish, turkey, chicken, or pork daily paired with something acidic, like tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries, or orange juice. To maximize the benefit, avoid drinking coffee or tea or consuming calcium-packed dairy with meals containing iron-rich foods.  

Lower your stress level.

Try doing 15 minutes of relaxing yoga twice daily. Gentle stretching and rhythmic breathing help reduce the production of hair-wrecking stress hormones for up to 12 hours.

Watch your vitamin A.

You need vitamin A, but taking in more than 40,000 IU daily can trigger patchy hair loss. The ideal dose for vitamin A is 10,000 IU daily, but many multis have 10,000 IU per pill to add up fast. Get it from orange produce (such as carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes) as beta carotene, a building block of vitamin A that is 100% safe.

Get your thyroid checked.

Losing the hair from your scalp and your eyebrows can signal an out-of-whack thyroid. People think they’ll be exhausted or gain weight if their thyroid isn’t functioning well, yet one of the earliest signs of thyroid trouble is often thinning head and eyebrow hair. Treating a sluggish thyroid can reverse hair loss in as little as ten weeks.

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way!

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way!

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way! 1920 1080 Abbe Lang
Do you have chronic pain? These easy natural remedies are proof that you don’t have to put up with troublesome pains and other irritants anymore.
 

Practice slow exercise.

Tai chi, yoga, qigong, or doing any form of gentle, low-impact exercise for 25 minutes daily could reduce your aches and pains better than even prescription pain medications can provide. Relaxing motion decreases your production of cortisol, a pain-producing stress hormone that also delays the healing of damaged tissues.
 

Try Massage

Massaging sore spots with a lotion, including Celadrin, can reduce pain and swelling. This lotion is so safe you can use it as frequently as you need! Apply your Celadrin lotion after a warm bath. Hot water boosts the flow of its healing nutrients to damaged muscles and ligaments.
 

Try OMT.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) uses rhythmic stretching and gentle pressure to speed healing and make joints less tender. As little as 15 minutes of OMT weekly can decrease stiffness and pain, even for people whose pain is so critical that they’ve been thinking about surgery.
 

Get your fish oil.

Including 12 oz. of fish or seafood in your weekly diet could cut stiffness and achiness. Fish is rich in healthy fats that reduce fluid buildup and help repair hurt muscles, nerves, and tendons. Even easier: Take a daily 2,000-mg. dose of fish oil that contains DHA and EPA.
 

Eat a rainbow salad.

There’s no need to eat even more fruits and vegetables to feel great. Just focus on eating a mixture of products with eye-catching colors. For example, try eating top lettuce with red onion, orange carrots, yellow mango, and purple cabbage. Eating colorful produce, rather than greens alone, triples your intake of carotenoids, plant pigments that soothe pain nerves, tame inflammation, and regenerate damaged tissues. This step is so effective that eating only two “rainbow” salads or other colorful dishes daily could reduce the ouch and ache in four weeks.
Cell Salts for Youth and Beauty

Cell Salts for Youth and Beauty

Cell Salts for Youth and Beauty 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

For centuries, women have exchanged beauty secrets on how to develop and maintain glowing, vital loveliness at any age.

Try this simple beauty plan involving cell salts and a minimal amount of effort for a period of thirty to sixty days, and you will be delighted with the results.

The Importance of Good Nutrition

As you have discovered, the twelve cell salt remedies can play a big part in restoring the health you may have lost as a result of a poor diet. The same poor diet that contributes to many health problems can also affect a person’s appearance. Some of the indications that your body is not getting proper nutrition include a sallow complexion, incipient wrinkles and lines, poor muscle tone, general tiredness, dark circles under the eyes, insomnia, and dry skin.

These problems detract from your good looks and can discourage you from even trying to look your best. But neglecting your appearance just causes more problems, and a vicious cycle is created.

If you are like lots of other women, you probably drag yourself out of bed in the morning, late for work, or in a rush to get your husband and children off to work and school. You do not have time to fix yourself a good breakfast, even if you might prepare one for your family. So what do you give yourself? Black coffee and white toast. When your body is trying to tell it needs nutrition the most, to help you face the day squarely, it is ignored.

When noon rolls around, you probably find that you’re absolutely starving. If you are at work, you raid the catering truck or vending machines and wind up with a lunch of dubious value, possibly a stale sandwich consisting of some processed cheese, ham, and lettuce on white bread, more coffee, and a processed dessert.

There are a lot of calories in this meal, but your body will be getting a few of the nutrients it really needs for health and beauty. At dinnertime, you are probably tired and not really up to preparing a nutritious meal. Fast foods or take-out are probably all you can manage. If this sounds at all like you, stop right now and consider this grim fact. If you continue neglecting and abusing yourself this way, all you can expect is an early old age. This is especially true if you are a young woman who feels that she has to starve herself all of the time to maintain a fashionably lean silhouette.

As you begin to plan a better nutritional program for yourself, the cell salt calc phos will help you. Take it before or after each meal. And then think about those meals. (Reread the section on calc. phos. on page 49, which will help you visualize your body’s nutritional mechanisms at work.) You should avoid heavy, fat-laden meals. Get into the habit of eating a good breakfast. It can be as simple as whole-grain cereal with a little fresh fruit and milk or some fresh cheese, whole-grain toast, and fruit juice.

Whole-grain cereals are extremely important in the diet for the precious vitamins and minerals they contain.

You can take your lunch with you to work. It should include a fresh, preferably raw, vegetable or salad, cooked eggs or cold meat, and maybe whole grain bread and butter. Avoid all soft drinks, including those with artificial sweeteners. Drink at least eight glasses of pure water each day. Dinner should be the lightest meal of the day. A light soup or salad and some fruit are ideal.

Remember that sugar is absolutely useless in the diet. It serves no purpose nutritionally, and there are many health experts who believe that it can seriously damage your health. It also adds many empty calories. Bear in mind that it is an ingredient in many packaged foods. It is a good idea to read package labels carefully and substitute fresh fruits and vegetables for packaged or frozen fruits and vegetables. But beware of some so-called “natural” products. If you look closely at their ingredients, you may find that chemical preservatives or sugar are included.

To take cell salts and then eat sugar is like going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and then going home and drinking a cocktail. Health is the result of a combination of things, of which the cell salts are an integral part. But the cell salts cannot work if you abuse your body in other ways.

Once your diet has become healthy, you will notice the beginning of a new you. You will lose unwanted pounds, have more energy, discover a brighter personality, and start looking better.

The Role of Cell Salts

Calc phos is the nutritional remedy that will make you feel good all over. It is routinely prescribed for sluggish, run-down conditions. It can help you regain your energy. Kali sulph and ferrum phos are also essential for any new health regimen. Kali sulph and ferrum phos both carry oxygen through your body and help restore your health. Try taking these remedies each day before you exercise.

Your exercise program need not be the regimented program you may have suffered through in school. An easy, personalized exercise program can be a wonderful tension reliever. It can quickly eliminate that sluggish, run-down feeling.

If you do not enjoy sports or working out in a gym, take a long walk or a hike in the most beautiful surroundings you can find. If you want to think things out, take your walk by yourself. If you prefer company, which may help pass the miles more pleasantly, invite your family or friends to walk with you.

On a hot day, try a cool swim instead. If you feel exuberant, take advantage of your feeling by running for a while. You will soon discover that exercise has become something you associate with happy times.

Each day, you will feel better immediately when you realize that it is the time of day to make yourself feel better by exercising.

At night, just before retiring, take ferrum phos, kali sulph, mag phos, and natrum phos. These will help you sleep well. Along with a healthy diet and exercise, your cell salt beauty plan should include plenty of sleep.

Getting enough sleep for your health might sound deceptively simple. Everybody knows that sleep is important, but how many people actually get enough sleep every night? Probably very few. If you cannot get to sleep until 3:30 AM because of insomnia and have to get up at 7:00 AM, you are not going to feel good. If you are one of the bleary-eyed souls who while away the wee hours of the night watching television because you cannot unwind any other way, try taking the above-named cell salts. That way, you will get your “beauty sleep.”

Remember that part of being beautiful lies in having regular health habits-good diet, exercise, and enough rest. Erratic living does not help your appearance, and it does not prolong youth, either. A serene outlook on life and a sense of humor can also help you to develop both inner and outer loveliness.

Ferrum phos. is everyone’s “beauty tonic.” It is used in combination with other cell salts to treat many ailments, but it is also extremely effective by itself. It is also sometimes a good idea to take kali phos., the soother of jangled nerves, to restore your peace of mind, promote a more positive attitude, and bring color back to your cheeks.

Ferrum phos plays an important role in maintaining good health, which, of course, is the largest part of being beautiful. It is especially effective if your spirits are depressed, which will show on your face. All of the cell salt phosphates will help lift your spirits, but ferrum phos will give you the physical basis for good health. If you are feeling discouraged, take ferrum phos twice a day, morning and evening, and watch your gloomy symptoms disappear.

For Beautiful Hair and Nails

If you envy women with long, shiny hair and long, graceful fingernails, you are not alone. But you may feel that lovely hair and nails are an impossible dream. Commercial fingernail strengtheners may work at first, but they contain harsh chemicals. Hair conditioners are unreliable and full of strange chemicals. So what do you do? You take silica.

Silica, nature’s cell cleanser, is recommended for many ailments. But it is especially useful for building up hair and nails.

Take silica three times a day, morning, noon, and evening. At the same time, be sure that you are eating well and getting plenty of rest. Within thirty days, you should see your hair take on a healthy shine and split ends disappear. Your fingernails will be stronger, longer, and less inclined to break and split.

Eliminating Water Retention

Another problem that can detract from beauty is water retention. Many women who experience this find it to be worse just before their menstrual period, although in susceptible women, it is sometimes an ever-present condition. If you have a water retention problem, take natrum sulph and natrum mur before meals to help regulate your body fluids. You should also stop adding salt to the food you eat. A low salt intake will benefit your heart and may even protect you from some forms of cancer.

Since natrum sulph and natrum mur work to eliminate bloating and water retention, they will help you produce a sleek new body. Some of the other salts you are taking in this program will also help you prevent obesity. Try calc fluor—it holds off obesity and is also good for the enamel of your teeth.

By the way, if you are especially troubled by water retention before your period, try stepping up your exercise program. Exercise also helps relieve menstrual cramps, which are sometimes associated with water retention.

Eliminate Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are unattractive reminders that we are getting older. They are also painful. Calc. fluor, the cell salt which promotes suppleness and elasticity, has been recommended for treating varicose veins for years along with ferrum phos and silica, which you should be taking already.

To treat varicose veins, take calc fluor, ferrum phos, and silica in the morning and evening, but give them time to work, especially if you have had the condition for a long time. You should obtain comfort, relief, and improved appearance within a reasonable time. If you do not, or if the condition worsens, see your doctor. There are other medical procedures besides taking cell salts for this condition.

A Clear, Fresh Complexion

Silica, which you should already be taking for your hair and nails, is also good for your complexion. But another salt is especially helpful for your complexion-calc. sulph., a healer and purifier of the blood. If your face tends to break out, it is best to take calc sulph before the pimples start discharging pus. If they have already started to discharge pus, take kali mur. in addition. The cell salts should be taken every two hours until the pimples have discharged the pus. Then take the cell salts only twice a day, morning and evening. You might have to take the cell salts every time your skin starts to break out again. Both calc phos and kali sulph help build new skin cells, but you should already be taking these anyway. Also, for general skin health, stay away from greasy foods and too much salt and sugar.

Natural Cell Salt Cosmetic

Avocado is one of the best cosmetics you can buy. You can create your own avocado cosmetics, or you can buy avocado creams at health food stores. Do not be fooled by products from large chemical, cosmetic firms that use a dab of avocado for sales appeal.

These products are still essentially chemical and may be irritating or even dangerous.

To create your own avocado cream, puree avocado flesh and refrigerate it for three days. Then add one tablespoon of a multiple cell salts combination, dissolved in water and wheat to the puree (or a health food store cream). The result will be a germ oil, a product that should help remove flabby jawlines, sagging muscles, and crepe necks if it is used with consistency.

Why the avocado-cell salt mixture? Because avocados are nature’s best emollient. They are rich in cell salts and natural humectant-a substance which draws water to itself. Water (not oil) creates soft, beautiful skin, and avocado applied to the skin, with cell salts and vitamin E (in the form of wheat germ oil) added, is just about the best cosmetic there is. Use it in your cell salt beauty plan. Use the avocado-cell salt cream on your face at night, and start using the cell salts conscientiously in your diet.

Sodium Sulphate (Natrum sulph.) - A MIRACULOUS REMEDY FOR ASTHMA

Sodium Sulphate (Natrum sulph.) – A MIRACULOUS REMEDY FOR ASTHMA

Sodium Sulphate (Natrum sulph.) – A MIRACULOUS REMEDY FOR ASTHMA 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Sodium sulphate (natrum sulph), which is produced by the action of sulphuric acid on common table salt, occurs naturally in large quantities in many salt lakes. When it is manufactured, its common name is Glauber’s salt; but for use as a cell salt remedy, natrum sulph is always obtained directly from natural sources.

Sodium chloride attracts water to the body tissues, and natrum sulph regulates the carrying of water away from the body tissues.

Of course, this process has many health benefits, making sodium sulphate a remedy for many ailments—including such diverse ones as asthma, diabetes, influenza, and old head injuries—just because of its powerful influence on the waste-removing process of the body’s cells.

Asthma

Natrum sulph is, in fact, the main cell salt remedy for asthma. Ailments that are aggravated by dampness, fog, and wet weather are “provings” of this cell salt; asthma is certainly made worse by dampness, fog, and wet weather.

A hard, asthmatic cough, with thick expectoration and a constant desire to take long, deep breaths, is a strong sign that you need natrum sulph. In addition, hay fever that comes on during a damp, chilly day or during a hot, humid day is a further indication that natrum sulph can help you.

No one knows why natrum sulph is a good treatment in asthma cases, but doctors have reported case after case where it cured long-standing asthma completely. Perhaps this is due to its ability to attract twice its bulk in water-containing waste products and then remove this waste from the bloodstream. Or possibly the amazing results are related to its incredible ability to heal the mucous membranes. Whatever the reason, consider sodium sulphate your ally if you suffer from asthma.

It is possible that the powers of this amazing remedy are due to the fact that it is a “super” cell salt—that is, it works in the fluids between the cells, acting as part of the process that enables the cells to discern what they need in the fluids outside themselves and what substances are harmful and must be eliminated. Sodium sulphateh acts as a “sensor” and has the ability to aid the cells in finding sustenance.

Natrum sulph in Combination

Natrum sulph is a good treatment alone as well as in combination. A biochemical “cocktail” of natrum sulph and silica is a potent tonic for asthma attacks. The silica will help with the symptoms of asthma, and the natrum sulph gets right to the root of the malady. Many of the other cell salts will be helpful in specific kinds of asthma (check the Simplified Remedy Guide for these). Natrum sulph, however, is the number one asthma remedy. 

Diabetes and Digestion

Diabetes is another disease that natrum sulph has been successful in treating. Years ago, when insulin was discovered, everyone thought that diabetes was finished as a life-threatening disease.

However, diabetics frequently develop fatal side effects, including cardiac failure. Some medical authorities believe that increased dietary intake of sugar is the cause of the dramatic increase in cases of diabetes.

Sodium sulphate can play an enormous role in treating many problems related to digestion, which is why it is sometimes an important treatment in diabetes. It has also been helpful to people with gallbladder troubles. Of course, if you have gallbladder problems, you should not treat yourself; see your doctor. 

Influenza

Natrum sulph was said to cure the flu by Dr. Charles S. Vaught, who added that excessive catarrh, itching, scabies, or eczema are all signs of a sodium sulphate deficiency. Dr. Vaught himself was suffering from influenza in its earliest stages and “headed it off at the pass” by taking natrum sulph. Other doctors have reported curing difficult cases of influenza by using this remedy. 

One authority on biochemistry suggests dissolving two or three tablets each of ferrum phos, natrum sulph, and kali murin in a glass of hot water and sipping it when influenza threatens. The doses, in the 6x potency, should be repeated every thirty minutes.

Head Injuries

An interesting characteristic of natrum phos is its ability to help in cases of head injuries. In this era of busy freeways and city streets, we can easily be involved in accidents having long-lasting effects.

 Other Benefits

Natrum sulph cell salts largely control the action of the liver according to biochemical theory. During a spell of humid, oppressive weather, a few doses of this cell salt will help you to recover from that sluggish, run-down feeling.

A deficiency in natrum sulph can result in a number of psychological symptoms. Irritability, often a symptom of our fast-paced modern life, is the foremost indication of this. Natrum sulph will yield fast, comforting results, provided that the short temper you have is due to a sodium sulphate deficiency rather than just irritating in-laws or overdue bills.

Natrum sulph is a natural sleeping potion. If you have trouble falling asleep and have restless dreams, if your sleep is unrefreshing if you find yourself waking too early or too frequently, then a dose of natrum sulph every hour, beginning a few hours before bedtime, will do what the prescription medicines promise. 

Moreover, this cell salt remedy is completely harmless. There is no way that you can become addicted to it. When you have taken it for a very short period of time, you will discover that your sleep-related problems will disappear, giving you the refreshed appearance and peace of mind that come with improved sleep.

Also, if you find yourself getting cold in bed at night, especially in the hands or lower limbs, consider sodium sulphate your natural electric blanket.

Feelings of discouragement are another indication that may need sodium sulphate. Most people have a hard time getting started in the morning. However, if you always feel depressed and despondent in the morning, think of natrum sulph, which, if taken regularly as prescribed here, will bring you a much brighter mental outlook.

Natrum sulph is also often helpful in cases of gout and in alleviating pain connected with teeth and dentistry. Many illnesses for which this remedy is indicated really call for all three of the biochemical sodium remedies: natrum mur, natrum sulph, and natrum phos. You are advised to take a combination of these three cell salts if you are irritable due to biliousness, if you have a headache centered in the top of your head, if you suffer from dizziness, if you suffer from drowsiness, or if you have anxious dreams or nightmares.

Sodium Phosphate (Natrum phos.) - THE BIOCHEMICAL ANTACID

Sodium Phosphate (Natrum phos.) – THE BIOCHEMICAL ANTACID

Sodium Phosphate (Natrum phos.) – THE BIOCHEMICAL ANTACID 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Sodium phosphate (natrum phos) has often been called the “biochemical antacid.” It plays this role not only in digestion but also in the body’s fluids, including the blood. But it is a major remedy for indigestion.

Americans spend over a quarter of a billion dollars a year on medications that promise relief from indigestion. Yet, the best advice for those who suffer from indigestion is to change their diet and try the various biochemical remedies, which cannot hurt and will most likely help. Many antacids that people take for stomach upset contain bicarbonate of soda, which can cause the formation of kidney stones and recurrent urinary tract infections.

The high sodium count of “bicarb” also makes it bad for people with incipient heart trouble or kidney problems. The next time you are stricken with indigestion, instead of using one of the commercial preparations, eat and drink nothing until the pain is gone. Then try adding clear liquids-water, herbal tea, or broth. Next, add bland foods such as toast, rice, mashed potatoes, and the like. Music and meditation can also help because anxiety produces excess stomach acid, and excess stomach acid produces indigestion.

Chronic indigestion may mask more serious ailments. If treating indigestion with biochemical preparations and changing your diet does not help, your “indigestion” may actually be gallbladder or heart problems, or even a peptic ulcer, masquerading as common indigestion. So, be methodical. Keep a record of your diet, recording the effect various foods have on your indigestion. Also, be sure not to overeat to the point where you feel stuffed. It is now known that the state of one’s nerves can have a profound effect on digestion. The digestive function is practically the first thing affected by an agitated mental condition. 

Indigestion is a very complex problem, intimately connected with your whole nervous system. If you find yourself becoming angry at trifles, easily vexed, anxious at night, not feeling very sociable, or suffering from mental fuzziness, all of these problems could be signs that indicate a need for natrum phos. The symptoms helped by natrum phos in cases of indigestion often indicate other health problems.

Why Good Digestion Is Necessary

Physically, digestion (or a lack of it) is central and vital to your health. If you are not digesting your food properly, you cannot eliminate it properly. Problems such as constipation and diarrhea have an immediate effect on how you feel. Natrum phos can help you if you find yourself developing an aversion to the food you would otherwise like. If you feel “heat” in your stomach, nausea in the morning, and pain in your stomach after eating, natrum phos is your remedy. It is also indicated if you suffer from alternate bouts of constipation and diarrhea. Even your dreams can be tied to indigestion. If, after raiding the refrigerator for a midnight snack, you dream a lot and the dreams are vivid or make you feel anxious, natrum phos will help you sleep more comfortably.

Of course, you should take natrum phos, or any other cell salt remedy, only as a part of a conscious attempt to follow a healthier lifestyle. If the cells of your body are depleted of vital cell salts, it might take more than the ingestion of the indicated remedy to cure you. The whole theory behind the use of cell salts is that your body can cure itself. The cell salts are merely catalysts. 

Sometimes, however, a cure may require a change of surroundings, a happy occupation, good food, vitamins and exercise, regular sleep, and better, effortless evacuation of the bowels and bladder. All of these are things to concentrate on in the event of illness. After these have been attended to, one can begin the administration of cell salts.

A Helpful Combination

In some cases of rheumatism, natrum phos is called for in conjunction with ferrum phos. Phosphate never occurs in a free state; it is always in combination with other substances. It is found in urine and can be extracted from the bones. It was discovered in Germany in 1673, and its properties of healing have been discovered by many since then. You will find that phosphates are included in some of the most important remedies in cell salt treatment. They are used as a standard cell salt nerve tonic, among many other things.

Natrum phos is recommended first in cases of indigestion. But once the condition has been left unattended for too long or has been made worse by the use of patent antacids or other medicines, the general rule of thumb is to combine natrum phos with natrum sulph. These two cell salts work remarkably together. If you have headaches in addition to indigestion and they are located in the forehead, or if your skull feels “too full,” think of natrum sulph. If you have pain in your stomach or your stomach seems full of frothy, sour fluids, once again, natrum phos will do the trick. Be sure you alternate these two cell salts with doses of ferrum phos as well.

Back Pain and Rheumatism

Natrum phos is also useful for some back pains and in all acute or chronic cases of inflammatory rheumatism. Rheumatic pains in the joints, a weak feeling in the legs, cracking and creaking in the joints—these symptoms all call for natrum phos. 

The primary indication that you have a rheumatic condition that can be helped by this remedy is a yellow-coated tongue and other acid symptoms involving the mouth and sweat glands. 

If your symptoms seem worse during menstruation, you may need natrum phos. The point is that the primary role of natrum phos is the decomposition of lactic acid and the emulsification of fatty acids. It is found in the blood, muscles, nerves, and brain cells-and many illnesses involving these. 

In many diseases, the common factor is the acidity of the blood. Cell salts, as you know, operate in the individual cells, and natrum is used for such ailments as gout, stomach ulceration, and worms. It helps emulsify decomposed lactic acid, which causes pain in rheumatic conditions. However, in most cases of toxic and acid rheumatism, natrum phos is recommended along with other cell salts such as silica and kali sulph. For rheumatism, one expert recommends using the appropriate cell salts in alternation three times a day. 

Eye Problems

Natrum phos has long been used for conjunctivitis, an inflammation of the eyelid, and is one of the time-honored remedies for this condition. The eyes are particularly sensitive to acid conditions. Natrum phos is called for in many cases where there is a creamy secretion-for example, a creamy vaginal discharge. 

 Vertigo

Vertigo—a feeling of dizziness—is a definite indication of a need for natrum phos, especially when it is accompanied by acid-producing gastric problems. 

Other uses

Other conditions where natrum phos has been helpful include restless sleeping, an itching anus, eczema, hives, and a rose rash.

Sodium Chloride Natrum mur.

Sodium Chloride (Natrum mur.) – NATURES CURE FOR HEADACHES

Sodium Chloride (Natrum mur.) – NATURES CURE FOR HEADACHES 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

One of the basic remedies for headaches is probably right on your dinner table-sodium chloride or table salt. Of course, this does not mean that if you take a pinch of table salt, you will stop having headaches. To be effective, sodium chloride must be ingested in triturated doses—the tiny, highly potent doses that we have already described. Even then, sodium chloride, or Natrum mur, will not eliminate every headache. But for certain kinds of headaches, and especially for certain kinds of people, it can work wonders. It is called for in all headaches as at least one of the constituents of a homeopathic cure.

Conditions that seem to require Natrum mur may require, in addition, natrum sulphThese two cell salts work closely together in the body. Natrum mur attracts needed moisture to the cells and regulates the amount of moisture, while natrum sulph removes excess moisture. When the body needs natrum sulph instead of Natrum mur, the symptoms of wateriness are pronounced.

Headaches

One should understand that headaches are only symptoms. Aspirin dims the symptom, but it does not solve the problem that is causing it. The cause of the pain is changes in blood flow. Headaches are still not understood very well, like many other ills of modern living, but Natrum mur appears to be a good remedy for such modern maladies. These ills are often experienced as headaches. Even antibiotics can cause headaches. Stress, fatigue, loud noise, depression, and foods that disagree, such as alcohol, chocolate, and cheese, or even an argument with one’s spouse, can bring on headaches.

Sometimes the best way to handle a headache is to lie down or eat something (often, hunger is expressed by the body as a dull headache). However, hypertension and brain tumors can also cause headaches. Some people think that viruses are a cause of headaches.

Natrum mur is indicated again and again as the remedy for headaches.

The Power of Natrum mur

Natrum mur is often recommended as a treatment for more serious diseases. A famous English doctor tells how his brother, also a doctor, “had remarkable successes in treating multiple sclerosis” with Natrum mur.

Although sodium chloride is common to most living things, it is present in a much higher concentration in bodily fluids than in things such as bones and muscles. Sodium chloride’s great quality is its creation of osmotic pressure. Osmosis is important since, without it, water would lose its life-giving qualities in the body.

It is the key to many delicate and important chemical processes in the body. 

Without osmosis, body cells could not be given the nutrients and chemicals they require because cells stay in one place in the body. They know exactly the kind of nutrition they need and will reject imitations, but they cannot go hunt for it. The blood must bring the necessary nutrients, which then are transmitted to the cells by osmosis-a process controlled by sodium chloride.

The paradoxical powers of sodium chloride are demonstrated by the fact that, in homeopathic doses, it is regarded as a good antidote to hay fever, yet this same method of treating hay fever also calls for the elimination of sodium chloride in the form of table salt from the diet.

Sodium, the element, has an important synergistic relationship with potassium. Some authorities believe that an overabundance of sodium in the form of table salt can antagonize its partnership with potassium, upsetting the body’s balance and even causing such troubles as cancer and high blood pressure.

Therefore, it is best to limit table salt intake to a reasonable amount since it can build up in the body over a long period of time and cause various health problems. The primary indication of a sodium chloride deficiency is either an exceptional dryness anywhere in the body or, conversely, an overabundance of water. If you need Natrum mur, you will probably appear bloated, feel languid and drowsy, and suffer from chilly extremities. You will most likely have a pronounced craving for salt because even though you may be eating many more times the required amount with your meals, it cannot be absorbed by the body unless it is taken in minute doses.

Heart Disease

People who can be expected to respond well to Natrum mur cell salts can often be recognized by their free, watery discharges, which flow far too easily from the mucous membranes. Natrum mur, however, is also indicated in cases where the vagina is excessively dry. Natrum mur subjects also tend to be sensitive to light and heat, and they have poor circulation. They are often chilly, and their conditions appear to be aggravated by the seashore.

They are often melancholy. Fear of thunder is a symptom. Sir John Weir said that during the air raids in London during World War II, a need for Natrum mur was indicated in cases of shock. Natrum mur people often suffer from constipation, hard, dry stools, which tend to cause anal fissures, and diarrhea, sometimes alternating with constipation.

It is interesting to note that headaches and abnormal fatigue are symptoms caused by excess sodium chloride in the diet in the form of table salt, whereas these same problems often react favorably to sodium chloride in triturated doses. This seeming paradox is nothing new to homeopathy. A homeopathic remedy is proven by observing the symptoms of illness it produces in well people.

From these observations, homeopaths can expect the same mineral in homeopathic doses to cure these conditions. A considerable amount of sodium chloride powder, dissolved in water and applied externally with cotton, was an effective treatment for insect bites. Moisten the bite with a small amount of water and rub a little sodium chloride on the spot. The pain would stop almost instantly.

Dry psoriasis will usually clear up in two or three days with Natrum mur in the recommended 6x dose. Constipation is sometimes related to this condition and calls for the 3x dose. Natrum mur in the 6x dosage has also been suggested for the treatment of rheumatism (three pills, three times a day), as well as for varicose veins.
