Tell me about cell salts. - Page 45

post #881 of 1199

Ok, I'm relieved that you didn't understand it either, lol.  I had a hard time making sense of it.  And she said she used cell salts for over 30 years, and found these mixtures more effective, which is odd, as I don't think its a good idea to take chalk and baking soda.  Your stomach will be quite neutralized!

 

Thanks for your input!

ummmm can I add to my preggo question.... how about for hemorrhoids (I joyfully think I'm getting them this pregnancy :( ) I'm going to order my stuff in the next week, just trying to avoid doing the "oh I should have got this" issue I always seem to get! LOL  Also to clarify...do I take the bioplasma daily with the other stuff-calc phos/ferrum phos/calc flour and 5phos---I can't find 5 phos (is that #5 salt-Kali mur)??? whats the "way" I should be taking them? (trying to figure out how much to order).

post #883 of 1199

it has calc, ferrum, kali, mag, and nat phos.  different companies call it different things.  I'll be back with more info later-

 

hemorrhoids, I use a combo that works beautifully.  Don't know if others carry it.  It's cal fluor, kali phos, ferrum phos and kali mur.

 

individualizing treatment is something a practitioner can do, but you can certainly piece things together on your own.  look for the overlaps, and the increased needs and address them.

 

So for you that may be bioplasma, calc fluor, five phos and kali mur right now.

ok, so.... i've been taking silica, for general constitutional-type-stuff....  in my first cycle on silica, i had what i can only call my most pleasant period ever. i mean, virtually no cramps, nice red, even, not-overly-heavy flow (usually i'd have been up at least once at night, more like twice or even three times).... but when i look up cell salts for cramps and flow-like issues, i dont feel like silica is the "one" for that..... i'm not complaining, of course! but i'm wondering, would it be common for silica to help with this, or is it because it's a good "remedy" for me? comments? 

post #885 of 1199

5-phos is tonic E at the 1-800 homeopathy site.  The combo salts will list which salts are included, and so you look for the one that lists 5 different things with phosphate at the end (I forget what the beginnings are--oh, I re-read and saw Panserbjorne already wrote them out).  At least for us, I take/give bioplasma all the time, and then add/substract stuff from that as I can figure out what we need (sometimes it's pretty easy, even for me, and sometimes it's a bit more elusive).

post #886 of 1199

Hello Everyone!!

 

I haven't checked in in a while.  I've been busy with baby stuff, big boy stuff, food reactions, and my brain is too full syndrome.

 

At times I think what I am doing with energy medicine is working really well, and then at times I wonder if I could be doing more?

 

I am really loving baby girl's FE blend for her and her cell salt mix --- but she is having another reaction and has had enough reactions recently that she isn't pooping.  I remember my first child would only poop every 9-16 days and I just don't want to go there.  I just feel like her gut is shutting down to heal and I'm not sure what I can do to help.

 

She is on a lot of phosphates, so I switched her to 5 phos, and then add in a separate one if I think she needs it.  For example, for a long time she didn't have a gassy tummy or green poop, so I never bothered with mag phos.  She has started getting that this past few weeks, so I've been doing mag phos on top of it.  This is really controlling the gassiness, but is not helping her poop. 

 

I add calc phos (above and beyong 5 phos) when her reflux becomes more than minimal.  I ate a tiny bit of sesame oil and she had an strong reaction - reflux that made it hard for her to breathe  (sob).  I believe it was the calc phos that helped.  Clearly I will be avoiding sesame as well as sunflower (which I recognized very early on).  I am also wondering if other seeds are a problem.

 

She is sleeping poorly, barely catnaps during the day.  Is it nat phos that is supposed to help?  I have it written down.  it doesn't seem to be.

 

 

I wonder if I should be giving it to her more than I am.  Maybe that is it.  I only do it usually twice a day.

But it gets kind of complicated, balancing all of the kids needs/remedies/essences/salts/supps, everyday. 

 

Feeling kind of worn out.

 

That said, she is mostly happy, meeting milestones, on the surface clearly thriving.

post #887 of 1199

I'd just stick with the phosphates plus calc phos, honestly.  that and the flowers.

 

you can certainly also do castor oil packs as well.

 

are you doing probiotics for her?  shifting the pH should allow for proper growth-but sometimes some extra help is a good thing.

 

what are YOU taking for salts?   I'm hoping some kali phos!

post #888 of 1199

ok I will do that (re: calc phos and 5 phos)

I do quick castor oil packs (rub some on her belly, with an old tshirt on her and hug her to keep it warm)

 

I am not consistent with the probiotics, but I will be now.  I understand how important it is.  I have been on a rare sugar kick recently and it is making me very itchy - which I think is separate from my histamine/sals reaction.  That is probably bothering her also.  I am waiting to take probiotics until I do a stool test, which should be this week.  (seeing the doc tomorrow)

 

I am taking 5 phos, something for my teeth and bioplasma  (gosh memory is not working tonight)

 

thanks for your reply Panser --I'm so tender tonight about it all.

yes, i am quoting me.... hoping someone might have a thought? i know i need to read more, and that might help me understand...

 

i am having several very silica results-- my whole body is "firmer" and my hair, oh! my hair! it's soooo soft and... wow. is it possible for it to have even fixed split ends? because i suddenly have none, and i am sure i had some before! 

 

i am finding it hard to not stand on my roof and yell that everyone needs cell salts. and now! lol

post #890 of 1199

I have no idea about your reactions/questions. I would not be surprised either way, though. These cell salts really are amazing! Plus, aren't you also taking flower essences? They are equally amazing in their own way! I am just as fascinated and enamored as you are. love.gif

that's the beauty of a good match.  even if it doesn't have those indications it's creating balance in your body which allows things to normalize.  silica is classically for nutrient deficiencies-people who can't absorb or utilize nutrients properly.  clearly that's going to impact your systems.  And once it's corrected, that is going to have a similarly powerful, yet more beneficial, impact on those systems.

 

I don't believe they can fix split ends, that might be pushing it!  who knows though?  the shampoos that claim to don't either-they just make the shaft lay more flat (or something...not my area of expertise.  what I do know is that they don't "fix" split ends.)  Perhaps this is allowing the correct amount of oil to be excreted so the hair is more moisturized after brushing.  I mean, hair IS dead.  Healing your body doesn't heal what's already grown, but if it was super dry then more oil from your scalp will affect that superficially.

 

Tee hee.  I think everyone needs them too.

post #892 of 1199

lol, all i know is i'd just been thinking i needed to get the scissors out and trim my hair, and now, my hair has not looked this good since..... ever, maybe? my skin feels amazing, too. 

 

you've got me tingling with "once it's corrected...." i keep feeling the changes, and yet... continually amazed. astounded to think there might be more still! 

 

sunnysd~ yep. FEs and cell salts. quite the amazing combo! each amazing on their own, but.... together! wowza! 

 

actually, i think that's sort of my.... stumbling block, as it were. i'm taking this amazingly powerful/impactful combo that is affecting me in all sorts of "unlisted" ways... and at the same time, reading and learning and so on, FEs and cell salts in general.... since my reactions to both are not textbook, i'm finding it challenging to absorb textbook meanings.... kwim? maybe i just need to stop trying to understand them until i've balanced out. but that's hard, because i am, to borrow a phrase, so totally enamored! 

 

post #893 of 1199

well, the more you study them the more you learn.  the thing is there are layers of knowledge on all of these things.  as I've said there are hundreds if not thousands of practitioners that only use cell salts.  They are considered to be the ultimate in constitutional medicine for them.  There are all kinds of scholarly texts that list thousands of rubrics for each.  So, just because at first glance it's not apparent doesn't mean it's not a huge part of the remedy, know what I mean?  You could literally study them intensively for a decade and still find new information.  Flowers are the same.  While you could be competent to use them after studying for a year or two, you could study round the clock and still find new ways to make connections, still uncover nuances.

 

I know what you're saying.  It's hard to learn the book material when it feels like it can be blown out of the water by just about every experience.  But soon you're going to start making your own connections and reasoning through things which is where the real learning happens.  Once you have that network built in your head you can start adding layers of understanding.

 

For something like hair...the cell salts (off the top of my head) that impact hair quality/growth are kali phos, calc sulph, kali sulph and silica.  For very different reasons.  You can have hair loss and damage due to skin conditions (eczema, alopecia, psoriasis), stress/exhaustion/depletion, endocrine issues, malnutrition etc.  You may have to get into the more academic side of things to start seeing this, as there's a limit to how much can be crammed into a book for laypeople.  And that line is often drawn where you get the disclaimer that you have to see a practitioner.  Also realize that the books that you're reading are about mostly acute issues, with some chronic things thrown in.  They're not likely about constitutional work....which is what you are really doing in your case.

 

I'm rambling so I'll stop.  Just don't lose heart!  It's a long journey, but it's got fascinating twists and turns and it's SO worth taking!

post #894 of 1199

ok... i think what my stuck point is is the constitution vs. acute/treating. i am so lucky to have seemingly found mine so quickly and easily. it has impacted me so greatly and so rapidly, and maybe because of that i feel that finding those two magic things (FE & cell salt) should be the aim of... well, all things! lol. most of what i am reading does not have that as the aim. actually, i've been reading mechthild scheffer, and she's driving me crazy by constantly saying "even if you only have one or two of these... you NEED this flower." and a lot of what i am reading on cell salts is not geared towards constitutional-- and some even say "there are no constitutional cell salts." 

 

i tend to understand things by my own personal journey, and maybe that's not the best thing in this case. although, i took two guesses at dh's constitutional FE and cell salt this weekend, and am excited to watch what happens..... i'm a very "systemic" person, so it seems to me to only make sense to want to find them!

 

one funny thing about cell salts and constitutionals.... we talk with flowers about which flowers we have personal connections to, which ones resonate.... but not so much with cell salts. well, maybe that's harder, but i have always been very strongly attracted to quartz. since i've been taking the silica, my draw to the rocks has seemingly lessened. an odd observation, but one that made me smile. 

post #895 of 1199

most of homeopathy will happily write off flowers and cell salts.  mores the pity.

 

it's harder to have personal connections with minerals (or combinations thereof) most of us have never seen!  Flowers are more universal-we have an experience of them in general even if it's not the specific flower you're working with.  Flowers are evocative.  They have meaning, they speak to us, the represent something.  They are a form of art for many, a source of creativity.   Can you say that about potassium sulfate?  LOL!

post #896 of 1199

No, I cannot say that about potassium sulphate!!!

 

My daughter can about bioplasma, though. winky.gif That child has finished off an entire 500 pill bottle in about six or so weeks! She thinks they are the best thing ever.

post #897 of 1199
My 19 month old loves them as he tried to finish off a whole bottle in one night recently. The salts are now being stored out of site where a kitchen chair cannot reach them. He calls them so cute- rem D (screaming out the D as he jumps up and down)
post #898 of 1199
Sunny, do you give your dd other salts if you are giving that much bioplasma?

LOL.  My niece and nephew call them "aunt bea medicine."  I think it's freakin' adorable.  It's been a few years and I still smile when I hear it.

why is that, do you suppose? the writing them off? because they are so accessible to the general public? something anyone can do, that can really impact their health-- "cant possibly *really* work"? 

 

lol the universality of potassium sulfate. 

 

i love the stories of kids reactions to cell salts. (and to FEs!) our dog has figured out when the cell salts are most likely to be dropped on the floor (in the morning when we get them out to put together our glasses of salt and FE water for the day), and comes running. he has even started "begging" for them. dog2.gif
