Tell me about cell salts. - Page 56

post #1101 of 1199

we recently discovered we were all fructose intolerant. fructose is found in fruits, veggies, and whole grains. also table sugar and brown rice. we eat mostly white rice, white flour, dairy, meat, potoatoes, olive oil, mushrooms, and dextrose. it is a lesser know intolerance. it can be hereditray or dietary. my kids were diagnosed dietary but we are pursuing testing for hereditary. they all have cradle cap, dry skin or even eczema at times, they get diaper rashes if they eat the wrong thing, get real bad breath if they eat the wrong thing, and dont sleep all night long, even the 15 yr old doesnt sleep all night. we also can not have soy (it has its own sugar or breaks down to sugar) and i am the only one who cant drink milk but am fine with certain cheeses and yogurt.

 

it starts to have symptoms when introduced to food that is not breastmilk. bm is naturally fructose free. my kids also have demineralization on their teeth and fast growing nails and slow growing hair. it causes malabsorption of minerals and vitamins. my kids are also low in iron. i cant find any kids vitamins that are safe so i use cast iron pans. for vit c i buy sodium ascorbate in the canning section and add it to drinks.

 

hereditary can affect the liver making it easier to be bruised, longer healing times, and other issues.

 

i am not saying this is what you have, but just putting it out there that it is possible. nobody ever thought that fruits and veggies were causing my issues as a child, and my diet would make a registered dietician have a heart attack.

This is interesting.  I haven't heard of anyone else with similar issues as ours.

 

We too have to have a low fruit diet and low high carb veggies (eg. not too many yams), no grains, or we suffer quite a bit.

We do eat a lot of seeds, like pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower.  I soak these in salt water and dry them.  Some times we eat millet or amaranth (which makes a nice morning porridge), and buckwheat - which I often soak and sprout, then dry.  It makes a good granola mixed with seeds, cashew yogurt, a couple blueberries and stevia.

 

At any rate, over the last 6 months we've improved in tiny increments with constitutional homeopathy, cell salts, and recently, some flower essences have helped the emotions, and the osteopath has shifted ds in a small way, (dd is next, lol). 

 

At the same time, I make water kefir, kombucha, and cashew yogurt.

 

We also take liver support herbs, alternate with gluthionine, and other things I run into.  Lately, I've added liver 6c, and small and large intestine 30c and acidopholous 6c from elixirs.com

 

If you're looking for a pure children's vit. with iron, there are certainly some!  Search around MDC and you may find some recommendations.  I know of children's Thorne Research from iherb.com

 

Also for iron absorption, you can take Ferr phos. 6x

 

I'm not sure how far we will go in improving digestion, and it is hard to have continual conversations with my kids on not eating cookies when we're at social event, and loads of fruit, yada yada yada is what they hear.  I hope they'll be well adjusted adults over food down the road! lol

it is not very well known. it is caused by enzyme deficiencies that regulate glycagon storage and metabolism.

 

we do take bioplasma often throughout the day.

 

we try not to eat too many nuts. the only thing that is absolutely safe for us to eat is white rice and meat.

 

i am now a big fan of not eating something that upsets your stomach. lol.

I had a cold over the weekend. Usually, colds last a longer than average time for me and are rarely "simple colds"...turn into sinus infections and go on and on and on...blah.

 

I've been getting healthier and healthier, though! love.gif

 

As soon as I felt the cold coming on (sore throat), I started taking ferr phos (late one night -- 1 tablet every few minutes until I fell asleep). Starting the next morning, I also took calc sulph and kali mur (alternating the kali mur and ferr phos; taking the calc sulph every half hour). I continued with those three (lengthening the time in-between) for two days and then added in calc fluor and bioplasma, dropping the ferr phos. For the first time in a decade, I had a "normal" cold that was ONLY a cold and lasted three days. I rested practically the whole time and drank lots of fluids and kept up my hydrated clay (2T per day). It was awesome!!! thumb.gif

 

I know, that sounds odd... lol.gif  Seriously though, I am grateful it was 1) uncomplicated and 2) SO SHORT!!!!  smile.gif

lionessmom:  ferr phos for iron uptake.  calc phos, calc fluor and silica for the teeth (and bones).  in addition to bioplasma, if you want to target those specifically.

but all of those are in the bioplasma. wouldnt it be like taking twice tht bioplasma dose? just wondering bc the only other thing in there is the kali's and the nat mur...

post #1107 of 1199

bioplasma is broad spectrum and i love it for general use (it blew away a headache for me yesterday).  but what i am suggesting is that if you want to specifically target teeth and/or iron absorption, you might also give an extra boost with specific cell salts.

oh okay. cool :)

this.  I'd use bioplasma as well as individual, targeted support.

I recently bought a combo tissue salts product (I bought the strong bones and teeth one) but now I'm wondering if it's the true tissue salts and not just a remedy....I haven't read through this whole thread but I did read the first few pages and I tried to search for the product and nothing came up....however, I apologize if this has been asked and answered already!

 

Should I not bother with this product or is it as effective as buying the individual salts?

post #1111 of 1199

if it says tissue salt specifically it probably is.  I'm more troubled that they don't list potencies on the site.  Does it say on the bottle?

post #1112 of 1199

I helped a friend's baby the other day. Poor baby had a really angry-looking diaper rash that had been going on for several days. Mom/friend called me. (She's a nurse and had tried everything she could think of first.) She was dropping her older DD off at my house and I suggested she bring the baby with her. (Her sister was in town and was going to watch the baby.) At first I was thinking about calendula, but as soon as I saw the rash and heard more details I thought of cell salts. I gathered my entire box and books and showed my friend and had her try one first. Ferr phos jumped out at me, so I suggested that one and why and the mom said okay. She gave the baby one every 5 minutes for about a half-hour, then took her home. The next morning she came to pick up her older DD and told me the rash was nearly gone. I saw her today and the rash is gone.

very nice!

post #1114 of 1199

does anyone have 1800homeopathy discount code?

 

also would the teeth healing salts be good for bone healing. my mom broke a bone in her leg and it has not been healing well. thanks smile.gif

I do not have a discount code, but yes.  calc phos is what she's really after, but mag phos and calc fluor can be helpful too.  good luck!

Yes, it does say "6x tissue salt combination" and "schuessler tissue salts" on the bottle as well as 250ng each of calc phos, calc fluor, mag phos and silica.

post #1117 of 1199

perfect!

post #1118 of 1199
I have been lurking on the thread for a couple weeks, and have yet to read backward much... But I am giving some serious thought to cell salts for my family.

Bioplasma for all.

Calc. Flour. Swollen ankles & keratosis (me) & teeth (all)
Nat. Mur. Chronic sinusitis, water retention, migraines (me)
Nat. Phos. Food allergies (me & ds)
Mag. Phos. Fibromyalgia (me)

And Kali phos. While I am taking classes (only 1.5 weeks then off for the summer)

I'm about half-way through rereading this thread.  I found this link with notes on the individual cell salts and their uses really useful when I first read it and thought I'd repeat it here for the benefit of anyone who hasn't made it through the whole thread.

 

Cell salts are really powerful.  For anyone thinking of trying them, I strongly encourage you to go ahead and do so!

 

I'm in Canada, so cannot order from the mail order sites listed on this thread.  An hfsin my town carries Hylands cell salts, and the Martin and Pleasance kidz combos and the Schuessler combos, but they are pricey, maybe twice what you all usually seem to pay?  If anyone knows of mail order sites that ship in Canada or to Canada from the US, I'd be grateful to learn of a source.

This product is for sale in my hfs on the cell salts shelf and listed in the Schuessler Tissue Salts handbook that I have, if that helps.

The cell salt I ran out of first is Ferr Phos (for headaches, first aid, any onset of illness and pain).  I have had amazing success with Ferr Phos and Mag Phos for migraines, and pretty neat success with a Schuessler cell salt combo for Painful Teeth that includes Ferr and Mag phos, Calc Fluor and Phos, and Silica.

 

I just started taking Nat. Mur when I had a sudden case of strep throat (also abx immediately, because I have a bad history with these infections in my throat, bones, ears, and bladder that has led to surgery in the recent past and I do *not* mess around with it.) I would *love* to figure out what my body and spirit needs to make it no longer susceptible to these infections, and am currently working on figuring this out from several directions.

 

 Within 24 hours of starting Nat Mur, I was having all kinds of other acute symptoms that turned up in my research as particularly Nat Mur symptoms  - a bizarre sudden UTI, copious clear runny nose, sneezing fits, etc.  These symptoms subsided very quickly with extra doses of Nat Mur.  I've also been reading about the emotional uses of Nat Mur, especially for repressed grief, and they all so make sense for me.  It has all been very intense and bizarre. I'm feeling really good today, though!

 

 I have been experimenting with cell salts for a few months now, but had never really thought of Nat Mur - it was actually the only one I didn't own and I had to rush out and buy it.  Now when I read I see that I do seem to have a lot of the symptoms that are listed with Nat Mur - salt cravings, weak eyes, introvert,  etc.  I am wondering if this is a constitutional for me.  I plan to keep taking Nat Mur and finish the course of teeth cell salts I'm on, then just take the Nat Mur and bioplasma, and the other salts for any headaches or sudden symptoms that come up.

 

I have this idea that taking Nat Mur regularly might help my body to not succumb to these infections in the future.  Hope so!

Hello~

Various searches led me to this thread and I'm so interested in cell salts and remedies.

I am in my late 50's and sadly did not ever have children--sort of funny being on this site!

I am mostly ignorant homeopathic but am learning!  :)

 

Can you please suggest salts for the following?

 

constipation-This is a life long ailment for me, I'm almost 59 and this began in infancy. I could go for days without a BM.  I have used herbs and other means to tread my constipation but never seem to regulate.   My chosen way to eat is low carb so it makes it more of an issue.

 

gas/bloating especially right after eating

 

I seem to have no thirst button--I never sense thirst unless I've eaten a lot of pizza (toppings only) or lots of ham which is infrequently.

 

Water retention--is this a salt sensitivity?

 

I do not drink enough water--I have to force myself to drink water most days.  Some days I drink very little (no natural thirst).

 

Poor circulation in calves/feet.  I experience a burning sensation in my calves and feet almost daily.  It's like a sort of humming or buzzing feeling--hard to describe.  BUT--the odd think is that my skin is not warn/hot to the touch.  I have to hang my lower limbs out of the covers at night to relieve the warm feeling. 

 

Sometimes my hands and forearms feel hot and are hot to the touch.

 

I have had these symptoms for 5 or 6 years at least.

 

I have ringing in my ears.  The ringing pulses to my heartbeat.  When I bend over or strain it gets louder then comes down when I'm upright again.  This has been happening about a year and a half and if I let it, it drives me batty.

 

I have no insurance or access to a homeopathic physician.

I'm hoping perhaps that some of the cell salts are other remedies can help me out!

 

I ordered the handbook!

 

I cannot thank you enough for replying!

 

I'm only on page 9 of this amazing thread but decided to jump ahead for some advice--off to read more!

 

I forgot to mention my hair is thinning has been for years.

 

LOL I sound like a mess!
