Tell me about cell salts. - Page 14

post #261 of 1199
i just found this massive post, and i will read through it but in the meantime, what would i use for anxiety and panic attacks due to stress (filed for divorce from semi-crazy person, going into custody battle, etc).

meandk I don't know this stuff well enough to make great suggestions. Some people have good results with magnesium for anxiety, stress and caffeine and such deplete mag in me. I don't know if mag phos + magnesium is a good combo, maybe it is?

... Wanted to share an interesting turn in our cell salt experiment.

DS and I need ridiculously high amounts of supplemental K in order to not have nosebleeds (him) or bruise easily or have sensitive teeth (me). Seems to run in the family, some of my family have similar issues. Well, I'd pretty much honed in how much K I needed to give him, it's been stable for more than a year, I think. Since starting cell salts for me (bioplasma for a while, added silica after that and a couple others very recently), I realized that I'd been slacking on my K supp and I feel fine. So I started experimenting with DS's supps and I've been able to cut his K supp in half. Wow.

I've also been able to halve the kids' zinc supps--we have more health stuff going on than most people, I'm not suggesting everyone needs mountains of pills. But it really seems to suggest that it would help people absorb nutrients from food--I don't think it's specifically helpful for pills--and THAT's pretty darn cool. This stuff seems to work! And it's actually saving me money at this point, which is a nice bonus.

it's amazing to see how this stuff plays out. I had no idea you had issues with nosebleeds...I would have rec'd exactly what you are doing and you did it on your own. Neat. I'm so thrilled for you that you are seeing changes. I really can't stress enough how well these things work when people are diligent about them. Especially people who are in a fragile place nutritionally. They are just a MUST in pregnancy as far as I'm concerned!

Ah, and for the stress, I'd do nerve tonic E-the biochemic phosphates. For anyone with ridiculous stress levels. Tanya is right that mag phos is a good one-but you'd get more relief if you did all five.

off to take my bioplasma

I've now read through this thread twice, and I'm still confused how to help dds (3 and 8 yrs old) heal cavities. I know calc fluor, calc phos and silicea are recommended. Panserbjorne has said that cell salts can often be taken mixed and can be together in a metal water bottle. Can I mix calc fluor, calc phos and silicea? How many would you recommend for my dds? I am using unda cell salts because dd2 gets an upset stomach from dairy. Will they disolve? They don't seem to quickly disolve in cold water. Can I use hot water? Also, I put xylitol in dd's water bottle for her teeth. Can I mix cell salts with xylitol? I'm trying to figure out a routine that is doable. Thanks in advance for your help!
post #266 of 1199
Are the Unda cell salts lactose-free? The ones we use (Best Made, ordered from PB) are lactose-free, and they definitely don't dissolve either. I just give them to DD a few times a day and she chews them up.

Earlier on this thread Panserbjorne said "If you need sucrose or liquid it's a bit trickier....but there are sources. I'll post a few resources when I get back home! Seroyal does a great job and they are sucrose tablets-not terribly easy to find for most though." Unda is part of Seroyal
post #268 of 1199
Unda's are lactose free.

You can mix them, and with xylitol as far as I know. You *can* use hot water if you like. Maybe just a wee bit to dissolve, and the rest in cold. That or you can crush them up yourself with a mortar and pestle.

I've just started taking bioplasma and learning more about cell salts.

Does anyone have any suggestions for leg cramps? My mom and sister get them terribly. Up until recently, I've never had them but, last night, in the middle of the night, I had one so bad I had to walk and walk and walk until it let up.

I do take calcium / magnesium daily. I take a multi daily. Can anyone suggest anything additional?
post #270 of 1199
taking bioplasma regularly should help because you'll be getting the calcium/magnesium/potassium. Generally those cramps are an imbalance and more often than not it's mag that is needed. For that in addition to mag supplements you can try mag phos cell salt. Or a specific combo of calc phos/mag phos/kali phos.

How do you take cal and mag now? It's fairly important to take magnesium apart from calcium to get the benefit. It could be that you just need to shift that and take mag at night (if you aren't already doing that.)

If that doesn't shift things I'd focus on potassium as a fix.
post #271 of 1199
I take my cal/mag as a single supplement - 1000mg cal / 500mg mag.

I just barely started the cell salts and I did a hard run yesterday so, the combo of not enough time with the cell salts and the hard run is probably the culprit. Will stick it out and see how it goes.

Thanks for the info!
post #272 of 1199
then an epsom salt soak after the run could be a really big help as it will get you the mag you need.

I'd really encourage you to consider adding a separate mag supplement though, if it feels like you are interested. Almost everyone is mag deficient and calcium and magnesium compete for uptake. IN a perfect world it's a 2:1 ratio as you see on your supplement container. However in THIS world it's often more like 1:3 to correct the imbalance. I'd personally keep up with the cal, but add a good mag supplement at night where it can actually be used.
post #273 of 1199
Would you separate them out? Do calcium in the morning and then magnesium at night? or just keep the cal/mag and add additional mag at night?

Thanks for your help!
post #274 of 1199
You can keep the cal/mag-you already have it and your body is likely taking in the cal just fine. I'd just add mag at night.

Awesome! Thank you
post #276 of 1199
Just ordered tonic E, bioplasma and silica and muscular for DH Tanya it's fascinating what great results you're seeing with bioplasma! I can't wait to start bioplasma. I'm thinking I will just give DD silica and bioplasma for now and see how she does. We were doing calc fur and calc phos for tooth decay but perhaps with bioplamsa and a good diet that should be ok right? Trying to cut corners where I can

As for me I am trying to get pregnant and will get the bioplasma, but was wondering what is good for low ferritin and iodine levels? I also have thin hair, receding gums, see-through teeth, noisy cracking bones, tmj, and foggy brained. Wondering you would recommend for me.
I really appreciate all your wonderful advice...Thank You!
I know she reacts to certain foods such as grapes and too many carbs, but I feel that there is an underlying deficiency that's really at play.
Panserbjørne, I checked out the book on cell salts and how you can tell what you are deficient in by your face (the only book my library had on cell salts), I was wondering what you think of it?
Also, I am trying to do a more potassiuim diet in hopes of conceiving a boy and I was wondering which cell salt is best?
Thanks!
post #278 of 1199
For your little one I'd start with bioplasma. She sounds as though she needs more individualized support than this thread will allow, but that's a good place to start for all around bolstering.

I do like that book. It's helpful for chronic deficiencies-but doesn't help at all for anything acute. It's a fun starting place, but is just a brief glimpse into the world of facial analysis. IF you can borrow it, then there's no reason not to check it out!

In terms of conception-I'd focus on the potassium in foods and be very diligent with the bioplasma. Again, it sounds as though there's a history there that could use deeper support, but that's something you can do now which will be immeasurably helpful in my opinion. Now if you have difficulty conceiving, that's a totally different story, with a different set of information to go along with it.

Interesting. What was the name of that book? I'd like to look into it.
