Ferrum Phosphate (Ferrum phos.): THE PRE-EMINENT BIOCHEMICAL REMEDY

Ferrum Phosphate (Ferrum phos.): THE PRE-EMINENT BIOCHEMICAL REMEDY 150 150 Abbe Lang

Ferrum phos. is known as the primary biochemical first-aid remedy because it carries oxygen throughout the body and strengthens the walls of the blood vessels, especially the arteries. Since blood that is rich in oxygen is essential to vital health and long life, ferrum phos. is the first remedy to consider, especially for congestion, inflammation, high temperature, or rapid pulse. This is true even if the symptoms seem to indicate another remedy.

However, it is important to understand that ferrum phos. is not a cure for anemia. Anemia is a complicated disorder that must be important to keep in mind as you read this chapter. You were attended to by a doctor. In this form, it works more subtly, but these minute doses lead to profound effects in the long run and are health-giving as the best of medicines. Iron in minute doses should be prescribed for anemia-related symptoms.

But ferrum phos. It is good for almost everything that ails you because it is the cell salt most directly concerned with the blood, and the blood is the first place to look for health and sickness. Ferrum phos.’s best uses may be depression, tiredness, and dizziness. These are common complaints in every doctor’s office, and usually, these symptoms indicate a need for ferrum phos. Few doctors, unfortunately, are familiar with the use of iron in minute doses. And not all of them are aware of another cure for the symptoms mentioned above-elimination of white sugar from the diet. Depression and weakness can result from an excessive intake of white sugar. If you take ferrum phos. and eliminate white sugar from your diet, you may find that tiredness is no longer a problem.

Who Needs Ferrum phos.?

Signs that you need ferrum phos. (and almost everybody does in some way) are: weakness and general debility with a constant desire to lie down and rest, rheumatism and rheumatic conditions, and anemia. 

If you suspect that you are anemic, you should be under a doctor’s supervision. Another indication that you need ferrum phos. is an aggravation of your symptoms when you are in the open air. Also, there is often a rush of blood to the brain, causing dizziness. 

Are you a likely candidate for ferrum phos. treatment? 

If physical exertion tires you easily and your vitality is low if you have trouble concentrating and dealing with problems, if you have trouble recalling names and are easily irritated—especially with yourself, if you like to be alone, if you flush easily, then ferrum phos. probably is your remedy.

Menstrual-Related Problems

Ferrum phos. is often indicated for women with problems similar to those of Jane P., and it seems to be a woman’s cure (which is not to say, of course, that men cannot often benefit from this wonderful cell salt). Debbie S., a 15-year-old girl who suffered from anemia, also had terrible neuralgia in her right side. As is typical of problems that call for ferrum phos., her symptoms were worse in the morning. In her case, ferrum phos. produced some relief in the first two days and a total cure in a week. 

It cannot be a mere coincidence that ferrum phos. helps pregnant women. For example, if one of your symptoms during pregnancy is vomiting foods, which leaves an acid taste, ferrum phos, is recommended. 

Digestive Problems

Ferrum phos. can be good for digestion, especially if you have intermittent attacks of vomiting. It is sometimes useful in the first stages of peritonitis when the abdominal area is painful to the touch. A patient in need of ferrum phos. is often constipated, which means that if you frequently suffer from that malady, some ferrum phos. would be an excellent idea. Diarrhea can also be involved, especially if it includes blood-stained mucus. Blood in the stool can indicate a serious problem. If you have blood in your stool, see a doctor immediately.

Colds

Whenever you feel a cold coming on, you should immediately reach for ferrum phos. The symptoms that ferrum phos has created in homeopathic provings are similar to cold symptoms: a run-down feeling, depression, a desire to be alone, and vomiting. Some biochemists believe that a lack of ferrum phos. is often the cause of the common cold. When there is an iron deficiency, the blood is drawn away from the skin and outlying parts of the body to concentrate in important areas such as the heart, lungs, liver, brain, and stomach. 

The skin’s pores are consequently closed, and there is an accumulation of non-functional matter thrown out by the mucous membranes. This accumulation is the cause of the characteristic discharges of colds, pneumonia, and pleurisy. This is why you should always think of ferrum phos. when you feel the scratchy throat, hot forehead, and runny nose that signal the start of a cold. 

Often, people come down with colds when they are tired or discouraged. In these cases, the treatment for the cold happily coincides with the treatment for their depressed feelings. It appears that people have some control over the conditions that allow the cold virus to flourish. 

The viruses are real enough, of course, which is why doctors recommend bed rest for colds. Obviously, if despite your treatment with ferrum phos. And other cell salts the infection survives for more than a few days, or if your health changes radically, indicating serious complications, you should call your doctor. Generally, however, colds do not develop into pneumonia by themselves. The infections are not the same, and one does not automatically produce the other.

Although colds are a nuisance and sometimes very unpleasant, many people frankly enjoy the attention that a cold will get them. For such people, colds may be a blessing in disguise.

When you get a cold, you might try some of the prepackaged cialized cell salt combinations that treat the Ferrum phos. helps with bronchitis, too. 

Fevers

Ferrum phos. is said to have a great effect on fevers. Cell salt advocates believe that illness is produced by erratic molecular movements rather than by measurable deficiencies, and fever occurs when the molecules within the body speed up too much. Ferrum phos. tempers the human body to make it less hard and more yielding or more elastic.

It is usually best to use ferrum phos. with other cell salts. You can decide whether it might be needed for you by studying the symptoms described in this chapter. Some people believe that where ferrum phos. is needed, so are certain other cell salt remedies because of their close connection with it. Kali mur. is one of these co-workers, as is kali phos. Ferrum phos. It is helpful in so many cases that one is almost tempted to prescribe it generally as a preventative health problem. 

Other Uses:

Ferrum phos. is especially recommended for loss of voice or hoarseness due to irritation of the throat. 

Ferrum phos. is also a biochemical remedy for rheumatism.

Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies

Calcium Fluoride (calc fluor)

Calcium Phosphate (Calc. phos.)

Calcium Sulphate (Calc. sulph.): A POWERFUL HEALER AND PURIFIER OF THE BLOOD

Calcium Sulphate (Calc. sulph.): A POWERFUL HEALER AND PURIFIER OF THE BLOOD 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Calcium sulphate (calc. sulph.), also known as plaster of Paris or gypsum, has been used for years in medicine as a healing agent. In small doses, calc. sulph. is a healer of wounds and works together with silica.

Skin Ailments

Since the skin can undergo many kinds of external wounds, it’s good to know that you can look to calc. sulph. as a remedy. This cell salt is considered a purifier of the blood. 

Other cell salts are of particular importance in healing skin problems: 

  • Kali sulph.
  • Calc. phos. 
  • Natrum mur. 
  • Silica. 

Calc. sulph. is important because its function as an eliminator of waste materials makes it a key to preventing new infection. Eggshells are made of this material, and farmers use it in the soil to improve the color of grapes. 

But it was the cell salt practitioners who first realized its medicinal value when taken internally. Because it will hold water but tends to resist acid, some people believe that calc. sulph. acts as a protecting influence against fluids when it covers surfaces. It protects the stomach walls, eyeballs, nasal passages, mouth, throat, bladder, and other organs that need protection against moisture.

When your skin burns and itches or is cracked, or when you have liver spots, boils, moist or dry eczema, you probably need this powerful healer and purifier. 

Other Kinds of Wounds

Calc. sulph. is found in most of the body’s connective tissues. It is necessary to the nerves and the bones. However, it is primarily helpful in treating the body’s various membranes, including the skin. It will even help in other conditions, from diarrhea to colds. 

This healer is generally recommended when the insides of your lips are sore or if they are raw and your gums bleed during routine brushing. If matter forms on the heads of pimples, pustules, or scabs—whenever a sore is discharging pus—the wound is at the stage where calc. sulph. is needed. Usually, this remedy is used in combination with silica since silica is the biochemical “surgeon.” 

You should not generally take calc. sulph. until after you have used silica. Doctors believe that silica promotes the formation of pus in wounds and calc. sulph. acts from that point on in healing them. It will stop an injury from discharging pus if given early enough, but silica should be used before calc when this is impossible. 

Infections

Calc. sulph. has been prescribed by doctors when antibodies have failed to clear up cases of fever and infection. Before the development of antibiotics, both silica, and calc. sulph. were widely used in treating wounds.

Not all troublesome wounds are external. Some of the worst are internal. Both sinusitis and bronchitis and their discharges will often respond to calc. sulph., especially if the discharges are thick or lumpy. Naturally, you should not attempt to treat your infections with silica and calc. sulph. alone, without anti-infection drugs, but all of us know that infections often linger, and generally, nothing a doctor does seems to help. That is the time to take, in addition to what your doctor recommends, either silica or calc. sulph., as indicated by your symptoms. 

We all know, of course, that doctors and scientists have yet to find a cure for the common cold. It is best to study all of the cell salts and note where each is called for when you suffer from a cold. If you have a cold in your head, for example, you may have the same sort of discharge produced by bronchitis. Calc. sulph. is good for this sort of discharge, and regular doses will clear up the mucous membranes.

Remember, whatever the ailment, if it produces pus, try calc. sulph. as the remedy. If your eyes are inflamed with discharges of thick, yellow matter, try calc. sulph. Many eye ailments respond to it. 

Blood Purifier Cell salt practitioners believe that calc. sulph. is a potent blood purifier. It destroys worn-out red corpuscles and is part of almost all connective tissues. When a person suffers from a lack of calc. sulph., diseases of the body membranes, catarrhs, and skin ailments are likely to result. The role of calc. sulph. as a blood purifier is believed to be carried out primarily in the liver, where red blood cells that have finished their life cycles and are now waste must be destroyed. 

Calc. sulph Defienciey 

If you have an insufficient amount of calc. sulph., your liver will become overloaded with worn-out red blood cells; cell salt theorists believe that this is the beginning of many skin eruptions. Calc. sulph. often eases this situation. 

Acne responds well to calc. sulph. taken with kali mur. Varicose ulcers are a symptom of a lack of calc. sulph. The topical application of calc. sulph., in doses of 6x at least three times a day, can be very helpful. Because of its role in blood purification, calc. sulph. is also used along with natrum sulph. in the treatment of kidney diseases. Calc. sulph. heals by building tissues. When it arrives in an area in which it is lacking, it lays the groundwork for rejuvenation by attracting other vital cell constituents. 

Calc. sulph. has also proven useful, as mentioned earlier, in ear infections. It can also prevent sore throats and colds if they are caught early enough. At the first sign of these health problems, dose yourself with calc. sulph. in the 6x potency at least three times a day. Too much cannot hurt, but too little, or none at all, might well mean that you will be laid low by a debilitating cold.

Other Uses

The use of calc. sulph. is almost always indicated in ailments of the pancreas, liver, and kidneys for reasons that should now be readily apparent. Homeopathic doctors have generally found that calc. sulph. (as well as mag. phos.) is one of the most valuable remedies for counteracting the harmful side effects of coal tar drugs such as aspirin. Some homeopathic doctors believe that aspirin, while it may numb the pain, gradually destroys the chemistry of the bloodstream, leaving the body weakened and open to disease.

Because of its role in protecting the stomach walls, calc. Sulph. can help stomach ulcers by coating the surface of the stomach. This cell salt remedy has helped women who want to have children but have been unable to become pregnant. If your complexion is yellow or pasty, you should take calc. sulph. over some time—at least a few months. The results will be worth waiting for. This remedy can even help some kinds of anemia. 

One of the prime indications of a need for calc. sulph. is a burning sensation. People with burning feet are sure candidates for this blood-purifying remedy. If you like the open air but are sensitive to drafts and catch colds easily, calc. sulph. may have more to offer to you than to someone without these symptoms. 

If you are overly sensitive to heat and cold, you probably need this remedy. Here are some other indications that you may need this healer and purifier. If you have strained muscles from too much work and you have a sensation of heat surging through them, calc. sulph. may help you. Pain in the bones that is made worse by standing indicates a need for calc. sulph. If you are sick in bed and the warmth of the room makes you uncomfortable so that you push off the covers, try calc. Sulph. 

Do you become angry quickly and then feel weak when the anger has passed? Do you worry about your heart or your health in general but feel better after taking a walk? Walking is one of the best things you can do to help your body, so take a walk and try some calc. sulph. If you are easily confused, shy away from company, find your moods changeable, or worry excessively, you may be helped by fresh air and calc. sulph. If your sleep is filled with nightmares, you suffer from terrible fears, and your mind becomes feeble when you need to think if you are easily insulted and quarrelsome or depressed in the morning but mirthful in the evening, you may be helped by calc. sulph. 

Chronic headaches and occasional headaches have been cured by calc. sulph., especially those that come in the morning. The underlying similarity among these headaches is that open-air seems to help them. Women who get headaches just before and during menstruation will be helped by calc. sulph. The remedy can also cure double vision.

You should use this cell salt when you feel a sore throat coming on. More particularly, if you experience redness and swelling in the throat, a sensation of tightness in the throat, excess mucus, and acute pain when you swallow, you probably need calc. sulph. There is also often a sudden, ravenous appetite or, paradoxically, no appetite at all. 

There may also be an aversion to coffee, meat, milk, or a desire for fruit, cold drinks, sweet or salty foods, or any liquids because of a terrible thirst. Another use of calc. sulph. is to help in treating constipation and diarrhea in certain chronic conditions. In cases of anal fistula, insufficient or difficult stool, or diarrhea in the morning or evening, calc. sulph. has been proven as an effective treatment. 

Useful Applications:

Skin affections: mucous membrane affections; vertigo; shock; pain in the liver region; third stage pneumonia; third stage bronchitis; croup; hoarseness; herpetic eruptions; soles of the feet burning and itching; pimples under hair

 

Calcium Phosphate (Calc. phos.): THE NUTRITIONAL CELL SALT REMEDY THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ALL OVER

Calcium Phosphate (Calc. phos.): THE NUTRITIONAL CELL SALT REMEDY THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ALL OVER 150 150 Abbe Lang

Calcium Phos. is most important in the formation of new cells. It is essential for proper growth and nutrition of the body. It gives solidity to the bones. We need this tissue salt for the restoration of tissues after acute diseases. It is an excellent stomach and digestion tonic.  

Phosphate of lime (calc. phos.) is a principal chemical constituent of the bones, and it is also one of the effective cell salt remedies. It is given for its restorative powers following acute diseases and infections. In addition, it is specifically called for in all bone problems, as well as in many kinds of anemia, because it builds up new blood cells. It is essential in general nutrition as well.

Calc. phos., as a nutritional cell salt remedy, is one of the first cell salts to take if you are generally run down. It is the primary remedy indicated for children who are not developing correctly. 

When symptoms indicate a need for one of the other cell salts, it is often fitting to take calcium phosphate also. This is because it tends to intensify the action of other cell salts, promoting healthy cellular activity and restoring tone to weakened organs and tissues.

The Importance of Good Nutrition

If you are taking this cell salt remedy because of digestive or nutritional problems, it is smart to combine its regular use with an intelligent approach to nutrition. After a change to a more healthful diet, you will be amazed at the improvement in your health. Calc. phos. can aid tremendously in your digestive processes, but no remedy can completely counteract the effects of a harmful diet.

If you find that you have an unusual craving for salty bacon or smoked meat; if cold drinks, ice cream, and fruit seem to cause diarrhea; if eating causes stomach pains; if you have a gnawing, empty feeling in your stomach even after eating, consider taking calc. phos.

Taken along with calc, fluor., this remedy has given positive results for people suffering from obesity. This is because one of the problems that calc. phos can cure a ravenous appetite, especially when it strikes before dinner. If you suffer from indigestion, a dose of calc. phos. should be taken after every meal. It will help break up the food and promote healthy digestion. It will also help when there is an increase in gas.

Anemia

Quite often, the person who needs calc. phos. is tall, thin, listless, without ambition, and suffers from low spirits. Why does calc. phos. work so well in such cases? The answer is that a shortage of this mineral results in a lack of red blood cells. A low red blood cell count affects the bones since red blood cells make up part of the marrow of bones. Anemia, for example, almost always calls for treatment with calc. phos, as well as ferrum phos.

Calc. phos, has helped many teenage girls because it combats female disorders. A common application of the cell salt remedies in female disorders requires a couple of weeks of treatment with calc. phos, followed by treatment with ferrum phos. You should alternate the two remedies as long as the conditions persist.

Quite often, those who have a calcium phosphate deficiency will have a waxy pallor to their skin. They suffer from headaches, often characterized by a cold feeling in the head. They may also suffer from vertigo when walking. Watching television may cause headaches in these people.

Teeth and Bones

One of the body’s greatest needs is calcium, yet the modern diet lacks this mineral. Much of the digestible calcium in milk is destroyed by pasteurization. 

Calc. phos. is the primary cell salt remedy for children whose head bones are slow in forming or seem to be slow in developing mentally and physically. It has also been recommended for older people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. This remedy is valuable for both old and young.

Children who need this remedy often have poor memories and bad tempers. They are usually thin or even emaciated. They also tend to complain of muscle pains, especially in the left side of the body. Their teeth often appear to be very soft, and dentition is delayed. Their upper lips are frequently sore and painful, as are their tongues. They also have trouble with digestion and elimination.

Calc. phos. can also be helpful in mouth disorders such as sore throats and tonsillitis. 

The best-known use for calc. phos. is in treating teething problems related to poor nutrition and slow development. Doctors often prescribe calc. phos. for pregnant women. This cell salt is especially beneficial for those who have had trouble carrying children to term in the past or seem to exhibit the classic symptoms of calcium phosphate deficiency. 

Calc. phos. is not only the chief cell salt remedy for children. It can also work miracles in dealing with the problems of the old. Many older adults find that taking this remedy regularly keeps rheumatism aggravated by the night air and bad weather. When joints are bothered by cold, numbness, stiffness, or just plain aching, the best treatment is calc. Phos. and ferrum phos.

Psychological Symptoms

Calc. phos. has also been used by doctors to help patients who are suffering from unpleasant mental states. When children are fretful or peevish when the memory is poor, and when there seems to be an incapacity for concentrated thought, assuming other symptoms agree, this remedy can help.

All the phosphate cell salts are recommended for nerves and nerve ailments, but calc. Phos. has had some specific successes with certain kinds of neuralgia. These are characterized by aching bones, anemia, rheumatism, and so on. 

The Skin

Calc. phos, can be used with other indicated remedies in treating various skin problems, specifically facial eruptions that contain albuminous fluid, with yellow-white scabs. It is also effective in treating eczema associated with anemia. Freckles disappear, this remedy is used, or at least you will see less of them. 

Mental Symptoms:

  • Forgetfulness
  • Impaired Memory
  • Mental Anxiety
  • Children are peevish and forgetful
  • After grief, disappointment

Calcium Fluoride (calc fluor)

Calcium Fluoride (calc fluor): A NATURAL PRODUCER OF SUPPLENESS AND ELASTICITY

Calcium Fluoride (calc fluor): A NATURAL PRODUCER OF SUPPLENESS AND ELASTICITY 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

The cell salt calcium fluoride (calc fluor) can help treat various health problems, from piles and varicose veins to obstinate backache, gout, and anal problems, such as itching and fissures. And that’s just the beginning. There are many other problems that this cell salt remedy can help treat, including many psychological symptoms such as a groundless fear of money troubles. Calc fluor can help you if you are indecisive about little things which are not very important but cause you to worry anyway. Calc fluor is a chemical union of lime and fluoric acid. This union produces a remedy with healing powers demonstrated by neither of the constituents alone. As is the case with other cell salts, calc fluor is often more helpful when it is taken along with other cell salt remedies.

Calc fluor is useful in treating many ailments of the bones and teeth. Many experts blame the unusual amount of dental ailments seen in Americans on a poor diet and a lack of calcium. There is, of course, calcium in milk and milk products, but there are indications that the process of pasteurization affects this calcium adversely.

Calcium fluoride is a constituent of the surfaces of bones and the enamel of teeth. It is also a prime ingredient in elastic fibers in the body, which means it will often be of importance in treating diseases of the skin and the blood vessels.

Hemorrhoids

Because calcium fluoride is a prime ingredient in your body’s hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids often occur when blood vessels have elastic fibers, it is useful in treating ailments such as varicose veins become enlarged and lose their elasticity. Calcium fluoride’s role in restoring good health is its ability to maintain the elasticity of the tissues and restore this elasticity where it is lacking.

Heart Trouble

People with heart trouble can find a great deal of relief with calcium fluoride. A dose every fifteen minutes or so is advisable if the pain is acute. Of course, serious health problems such as this should be under a doctor’s supervision. Sensitive teeth may need calcium fluoride. Strained muscle tendons will also respond to this remedy. Both ailments can be treated with the remedy, dissolved in water and applied externally with a cotton swab, or taken internally in tablet form. Calc fluor can also be of great help in cases of vomiting (although you should use natrum sulph. or natrum phos. instead if the vomit is green or sour-smelling). If your urine has an unpleasant smell, calc fluor will help.

Calcium fluoride has even been recommended as the cell salt remedy for obesity, to be taken an hour before each meal in alternation with calcium phosphate. The idea is that these two cell

salts will aid in the assimilation of starches and fat in the meals. Cutting down on these items is also helpful, of course. Calcium fluoride is a potent remedy that can help treat many of your health problems from a lack of elasticity in the tissues. Let’s get down to the specifics of some of these problems and how this cell salt has helped people.

Bone Health

As mentioned, calcium fluoride is often helpful in treating bone problems. Calcium fluoride can be helpful in the treatment of numerous matters involving bones, joints, and muscles. It is almost always prescribed, for example, for enlargements of the finger joints due to gout.

Backache

If you feel that your spine is irritated or feel pain or fatigue in your lower back accompanied by a full feeling and confined bowels, take calc. fluor in the 6x dose at least every half an hour. It is helpful to dissolve a pill or two in a glass of water and have someone sponge the affected area with the mixture. 

Varicose Veins, Hemorrhoids, and “The Blues”

Varicose veins and hemorrhoids are two problems that calc fluor is famous for curing. You might find that these ailments go together. When they do, the afflicted patients have been described by.

Piles are caused by irritation of the lower intestine resulting in distention, often due to constipation. Rectal fistulas frequently develop when piles have gone too far. To treat piles, apply calc fluor directly with a cotton swab. Dissolve some tablets in a small amount of water and dip the applicator in the water. You should also take calc fluor internally. In serious cases, such as when the pain of varicose veins becomes so intense that the patient can no longer stand, doctors have given calc. fluor, tablets every two hours. 

If you are suffering from irritated piles, it is a good idea to use calcium fluoride along with kali sulph. If your piles are bleeding, take Ferrum phos. For hemorrhoidal conditions, take the calc fluor in a 6x potency before meals. Calc fluor can also be dissolved in water and applied as a compress to the anus, held all night with a suitable bandage. In the case of varicose veins, use silica along with the calc fluor, morning and evening.

Diet and Hemorrhoids

If you suffer from hemorrhoids, although you can expect help from calc fluor, the most effective action would be to eliminate the basic cause of your problem: poor diet. Intelligent eating to avoid constipation has been mentioned earlier. Processed foods are the main villains in constipation. Calc fluor will help when your problem arises from your digestive organs losing their elasticity, but the reason that these organs have lost their elasticity should also be considered. Calc fluor is useful in constipation involving a chronic inability to expel feces. Sometimes constipation arises from nerves, and calc fluor is also effective in restoring high spirits.

Calcium fluoride has also been known to help people plagued by nightmares. Other psychological problems that can be relieved by this powerful remedy are an inability to express yourself and the feeling that you just cannot think. If you find yourself at a loss for words and hesitate and repeat yourself in conversation, if you feel you have “cobwebs on the brain,” this cell salt can do you a lot of good.

Eyes and Teeth

If your mouth is always dry and your teeth are deficient in enamel, which leads to rapid decay, calc fluor is indicated immediately. When your teeth are loose in their sockets, this is the remedy to use, and do not lose any time using it. Take calc fluor in the 6x potency before meals and calc. phos. after meals in the same potency. Some doctors indicate this remedy for children with delayed dentition.

Another use of calc fluor is in treating certain kinds of eye problems. Eye problems should usually be treated with a variety of cell salts for the different symptoms. Check the Simplified Remedy Guide at the beginning of this section for other cell salt remedies. Calc fluor is the main remedy if you see sparks or flickering lights before your eyes and in cases of spots on the cornea, conjunctivitis, and cataracts.

Doctors have reported that calc fluor in the 6x potency has stopped itching on the eye’s surface and has helped when the wearing of glasses all day has made the eyes water and created a sensation of air blowing on the eyes. In addition, one doctor reported that in thirteen cases of cataracts, eleven were cured with regular doses of calc fluor.

Other Important Indications

Calc fluor is usually the remedy suggested for people who constantly vomit undigested food or suffer from hiccups. It is also suggested in cases of asthma where the mucus coughed up contains tiny yellow lumps.

It is excellent for chapped skin, cracks in the skin, fissures in the palm, brittle fingernails, and some kinds of eczema where the skin thickens and hardens (especially in damp weather) suppurations with hard edges. Use this remedy externally together with petroleum jelly after washing the affected area well.

Calc fluor is often prescribed if the menstrual flow is too thick, and this cell salt seems to be of great value in many feminine problems. If after a miscarriage the uterus loses muscle tone, calcium fluoride is needed. In cases where menstruation is excessive and accompanied by bearing-down pains and flooding, this cell salt can also help.

In general, ailments requiring calcium fluoride are affected by the weather, as was previously mentioned. The sufferer tends to be sensitive to cold, drafts, dampness, and changes in the weather.

Heat and warm applications also help. Frequently, you can detect That you need calc fluor simply because you are sad or miserable.

Calcium fluoride is to elastic tissues what silica is to the connective tissues, and it is regarded as the complement of silica. In many cases, these two remedies should be used together, or one can be used when the other fails to help the ailment.

The Health Benefits of Watermelon!

The Health Benefits of Watermelon! 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

🍉 Watermelon 🍉
Let’s talk about it a little.

🍉 Low in calories (less than 50 per cup).
🍉 Very high in its liquid content (about 92%)
“Blasted” with nutrients (in a cup – 154 g of watermelon):
21% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C.
18% Vitamin A
5% potassium
5% magnesium
3% Vitamin B1, B5, and B6

Watermelon has a high content of carotenoids (among them beta-carotene and lycopene, two powerful antioxidants). In addition, watermelon contains a high concentration of an important amino acid – citrulline.

Citrulline is an amino acid that was first discovered in watermelon (1914. In fact, the word Citrullus in Latin means watermelon), and which has recently gained great popularity as a supplement mainly in the context of health and performance improvement in sports activities.

Citroline is not an essential amino acid. That is, our bodies know how to produce it. But it is also found in food.

Citroline, unlike other amino acids, is not used to build proteins in the body. Its main and important role is in the urea cycle – a metabolic process that cleanses the body and removes from it residues of proteins that we have consumed or that the body has broken down and turned into ammonia.

Other important roles of citrulline are dilating blood vessels (treating atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, and even as a natural substitute for Viagra and similar drugs that treat erectile dysfunction and impotency). And also in building muscle.

The other vital nutrient present in watermelon is Cucurbitacin E, a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substance with amazing healing properties.

Cucurbitin is effective in treating several cancers.

Both citrulline and cocorbitin can be found in various concentrations throughout the gourd family – watermelon, cucumber, pumpkin, melon, and bitter cucumber.

Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies

Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Unlike choosing between thousands of homeopathic remedies, you can master the twelve cell salt remedies, giving the body amazing healing benefits. Because of their simplicity and accessibility, the average person can easily learn how to use them effectively for many health problems.

Dr. Schuessler, a brilliant man, was influenced by the work of Dr. Rudolph Virchow, the father of modern pathology. Dr. Virchow theorized that diseases are signs of change in cell metabolism. Dr. Schussler researched that when the human cell is reduced to ashes, only twelve minerals remain.

Cell Salts are necessary when the cells are lacking in certain nutrients.

This creates a cellular imbalance. If you take a cell salt remedy, you are supplying a micro-nutrient that enables your body to rebuild itself on a cellular level.

Medical research has shown that disease begins on the cellular level. For example, healthy cells require two mutations to become cancerous. If you understand how to maintain healthy cell function, you could possibly prevent these mutations from occurring. I’m not claiming that taking cell salts prevents these mutations, but taking care of your health from the inside out at this cellular level is certainly a good insurance policy in keeping yourself healthy.

There is no mystery surrounding cell salts and their health benefits. If you suffer from a common cold, for instance, you can take the cell salt that will relieve your body of your cold symptoms.

It is important to understand that cell salts do no harm. Even if your body does not need the particular cell salt you are taking.

Each cell salt performs a specific function in the body’s vital processes. Each person will have specific characteristic symptoms that point to the need for a particular cell salt.

Over the next 12 weeks, I will be going over all tissue salt remedies and their most popular uses. There are 8 precautions that I will share with you also as well as dosage instructions.

The Serious Solution to Snacking

The Serious Solution to Snacking 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

The best way to fuel your body is by consuming good nutrients throughout the day. With meals usually spaced 4-6 hours apart, snacking can be an important part of your life. Many people, especially adults with busy schedules, will either avoid snacking altogether or snack on the highly processed, high-sugar, and low-nutrient-content food out of convenience and simply not knowing any better, or just not taking into account the major drawbacks of poor snacking habits. The best solution to body-damaging snacking, in a nutshell, is to… prepare ahead of time!

Follow these guidelines for energy-boosting and mood-enhancing snacks that will be a positive influence for you and everyone else in your life:

1. Only buy packaged snacks after you have looked at the ingredient list and determined that there are no added preservatives, sugar, artificial flavors, or any long ingredient names that you can’t pronounce or aren’t familiar with. A general rule is that anything with more than 5 ingredients is not likely to be a great choice either.

2. Eat raw and fresh produce whenever possible. Get creative with your snacking. Cook up some healthy recipes and separate them into snack-size servings, so they are ready to munch on at a moment’s notice or grab on the way out the door.

3. Are you a chip fanatic? Resist the conventional potato chips that are high in salt and deep-fried. You’ll be amazed at how tasty and crunchy your own homemade potato chips are! Thinly slice one simple potato (best done with a slicing blade in a hand slicer or food processor to make it appropriately thin) and place a batch in between 2 pieces of parchment paper in the microwave. Season with a sprinkle of salt or other herbs and cook for 5-7 minutes until they are lightly browned. You can even make homemade Kale chips!

 4. Fancy up your fruits and vegetables with savory dips and tangy sauces. This will provide lots of variety along with a treat for your sweet tooth. Make your own so you can control what’s in them. Peanut butter (with just peanuts), slightly heated, is a tasty treat with various fruits and vegetables.

5. Keep a supply of natural raw nuts around you all the time. Don’t worry about the fat content in nuts; it’s the good fat your body soaks up and uses to your benefit. You can be more concerned about overconsuming high-carb foods like wheat products, potatoes, and rice. Plus, nuts are packed with protein, antioxidants, and body-friendly fat: omega-3 fatty acids!

6. Dedicate snacking to fruits and vegetables. Many people find it difficult to consume the required number of fruits and vegetables the body craves to function at its peak performance. Make one of your goals to only snack on fruit and vegetable-based snacks.

Healthier Fuel: Changing Your Diet

Healthier Fuel: Changing The Food You Eat

Healthier Fuel: Changing The Food You Eat 2560 1707 Abbe Lang

What you nourish your body with is one of the biggest factors in your overall health. Not just for your physical self but also your emotional, social, mental, and spiritual self. How the body uses food affects every part of our being so dramatically that if you only fuel your body with nutrients and avoid all those unnecessary ‘filler’ foods, you’ll achieve an excellent level of health without putting much effort into exercising. That being said, you’ll also have a hard time avoiding activity when your body is running on high-quality fuel!

You pretty much have to be living under a rock to avoid being regularly bombarded by advertising and association recommendations regarding many foods that are supposedly ‘healthy’ for you. The truth is, the claim of a healthy status shouldn’t be taken as a definite benefit to your body. You need to get the facts from unbiased sources to be sure you’re getting the most accurate information and advice about what truly is the right combination of nutrients and macronutrients (the protein, fat, and carbohydrates) to supply the optimum performance fuel for your body.

Changing eating habits isn’t easy, though, so to make changes that stick, you’ll want to use these tidbits of advice to cement your new way of fueling your body into place.

1.Keep a record of the food you eat and what you drink for at least a week.

This will help you constructively judge your eating habits, identify areas for change, and make you accountable for your food choices. Studies have shown this to be one of the vital components to successful diet changes and weight loss.

2.Eat slowly so that you can allow your body the time to signal that you’re full and to be much more satisfied by the flavor of the food.

3.No need to count calories and measure portion sizes.

Be more concerned with making food choices in their most natural state (vegetables, fruits, grains, pulses, unprocessed meats, and much more), including a wide range of colors and variety.

It’s good to have a long-term plan of how you’d like to be feeding your body, but you’ll be most successful if you make small changes over time. For example, if you would like to be consuming more vegetables, start by preparing an array of raw vegetables that you have on hand to snack on and make this your main goal for the week. The following week, you may want to start creating some dinner recipes focused on more healthy ingredients. Little by little, you will be building new habits that will stick.

4.Drink water regularly throughout the day.

Not only does water flush toxins and waste products out of the body, but it also helps you feel more energetic, gets you thinking more clearly, improves the appearance of your skin, and helps you to feel less hungry. If you’re not drinking around 2 liters of water a day, make this one of your first diet changes to implement.

5.Moderation is the key to any diet, so don’t feel like you can never enjoy your favorite sugar-laden treat or enjoy the convenience of fast- food.

Just don’t make it your regular routine. As well, use the concept of moderation and balance with portion sizes. Don’t fill your plate with a high-carb portion of pasta and only include a small serving of low-carb vegetables. Although carbs are an important part of a healthy diet, they are often over-consumed and not conducive to your body’s optimum performance or in managing a healthy weight.

6.Try not to be eating anything within 4 hours of going to sleep.

Studies suggest that this simple dietary change is beneficial for the digestive system and in avoiding the high fat/high calorie snacking that often occurs after the last meal of the day.

7.Learn to like the good sources of fat.

Fat tends to get a bad reputation for being the main instigator of weight gain, but it’s over-consumption (mainly over-consumption of high carbohydrate foods) that causes weight gain and sluggish body processes.

Get well educated on the good sources of fat that are so vital to the nourishment of your body. Just a couple of excellent options are nuts & seeds, plant oils, avocados, fish, peanut butter (with just peanuts), and tofu.

8.Protein is an energy-packed element of a balanced diet.

It’s integral to building muscle and gives the body a great energy kick along with other healthful benefits.

9.Limit sugar and salt and recognize all the hidden sources of these health threats.

Although it can be a given that consuming too much sugar and salt isn’t ideal, the biggest hurdle is being informed enough to realize all the places these veiled ingredients are hiding.

For the most part, your food sources will start becoming more and more natural; without even realizing it, you will feel so much better that you will eat more healthily than ever before.

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health?

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health?

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health? 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Many people believe that diet and nutrition have little to do with mental or emotional health. Yet, numerous studies prove that nutrient deficiencies and imbalances adversely affect the way we think and feel.

After all, the brain and the nervous system are very important parts of our physical bodies and need to be nourished, just like the other organs in our body. With a healthy body and brain, we produce the endorphins needed to feel optimistic, happy, and balanced. These “feel-good” endorphins help us cope with the stresses of everyday life.

LOW BLOOD SUGAR

One important factor in your mental health is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). When our blood sugar drops lower than it should be, we can feel anxious, nervous, depressed, and angry. Daily binging on sugar not only causes low blood sugar; it also releases dopamine, a feel-good chemical in the brain; this results in fewer dopamine receptors and a need for greater amounts of sugar to feel good. To prevent low blood sugar, it is important to eat healthy, nutrient-dense foods.

THE GUT-BRAIN CONNECTION

Scientists and health practitioners have discovered that good health, including mental health, begins in the gut. When we have an abundance of beneficial gut flora, these microorganisms produce feel-good chemicals. When an overgrowth of candida and fungi overpopulates the intestinal tract, these microorganisms produce neurotoxins that can cause everything from ADD to depression. Genetically modified foods, antibiotics, chlorinated and fluoridated water, and concentrated sweeteners can destroy beneficial gut bacteria.

THYROID DISORDERS AND MENTAL HEALTH

Poor thyroid function can result in mental health disturbances. People with an overactive thyroid may be anxious, tense, moody, impatient, irritable, and depressed. People with an underactive thyroid may lose interest and initiative, have slow mental processing and memory, and may suffer from depression. Iodine and Vitamin A are key nutrients for healthy thyroid function.

MODERN DIET AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

Many food products and beverages in the modern diet can affect the nervous system and lead to depression and mental illness.

REFINED SWEETENERS: sugar, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose

MODERN VEGETABLE OILS: hardened shortenings, margarines, spreads and liquid oils MSG, almost all processed foods contain MSG, even low-fat dairy products

ADDITIVES: Artificial dyes, flavorings, and preservatives

WHEAT: And other gluten-containing products, poor digestions, and leaky gut.

SOY: Depresses thyroid function

ASPARTAME: Associated with panic attacks, depression, memory problems

GMOs: Disrupt gut flora

The following nutrients are very important to your mental health.

Vitamin A: Think cod liver oil

Vitamin D: Think Cod liver oil

Vitamin B: Think nuts and grains

Vitamin B3: Think grass-fed meat and seafood.

Folate: Think leafy green vegetables.

Vitamin B6: Think bananas.

Vitamin B-12: Think grass-fed meat and seafood.

Vitamin C: think fresh fruits and Vegetables.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids: Think Cod Liver Oil

Zinc: Think grass-fed red meat or oysters.

Cholesterol: think grass-fed animal fats.

Glycin: Think homemade bone broth.

Cholesterol: Myths and Truths

Cholesterol: Myths and Truths

Cholesterol: Myths and Truths 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Cholesterol is produced by almost every cell in the human body. Cholesterol in the cell membranes makes cells waterproof, so there can be different chemistry on the inside and the outside of the cell.

Cholesterol is nature’s repair substance, used to repair wounds, tears, and irritations in the arteries. Many important hormones are made of cholesterol, including hormones that regulate metabolism and blood sugar, hormones that help us deal with stress, and all the sex hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. Cholesterol is vital to the function of the brain and nervous system.

It protects us against depression: it plays a role in the utilization of serotonin, an important “feel good” chemical. Bile salts, needed for the digestion of fats, are made from cholesterol. Cholesterol is the precursor of vitamin D, which is formed by the action of ultra-violet (VV-B) light on cholesterol in the skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that protects us against free radicals in the cell membrane and, therefore, against cancer. LDL -cholesterol fights against infections and toxins.

If you are worried about heart disease and cholesterol-don’t. The unnecessary worry isn’t good for your health. Instead, avoid processed foods. Eat healthy grass-fed meats and wild-caught seafood when eating animal proteins. Do not consume a high protein diet lacking in nutrients that can deplete vitamin A and lead to heart disease. Take a cod liver oil supplement to ensure adequate levels of vitamins A, D, and K2. Maintain a healthy weight-neither too heavy or too thin. Engage in moderate exercise in the outdoors. Do not smoke and avoid exposure to environmental toxins.

There are numerous dangers of statin drugs. Modern cholesterol-lowering drugs act by inhibiting an enzyme needed for the formation of cholesterol in the liver. These statins are sold as Lipitor, Mevacor, Prevacol, Zocor, etc. There are numerous side effects of these drugs. The most common being weakness and muscle wasting.

These result from the statin interference with the production of Coenzyme Q10. The heart muscle depends on a plentiful supply of Co-Q10. Many people complain of brain fog and memory loss.

There have been limited studies out to date, but in every study with rodents thus far, statins have caused a 1500 percent higher chance of cancer than those in the control groups.

If it isn’t cholesterol causing heart disease, that what is? The deficiency of vitamins A, D, and K2 is a contributing factor to heart disease.

Lacking the vitamin B6, B12, and folate leads to elevated homocysteine levels, a marker for heart disease.

Trans fatty acids are linked to heart disease. Mineral deficiencies of magnesium, copper, and vanadium have also been linked to heart disease. Heart attacks often occur after a period of stress, which depletes the body of many nutrients, especially vitamin A.
