When it's sporadic, how often does he go? When it's more liquid how often?

What cell salts are you taking right now? For how long?
For ds, it goes from brownish orange and thick/formed every 2-4 days to loose, brighter orange, and seedy and 1-2 times per day. He's a little fussier beforehand, but then happier after. No mucus, no other behavioral stuff, slightly fussier while nursing, maybe. I've been eating significant quantities of butter everyday and trailing goat milk kefir without this same reaction. Now that we've started solids, he's going every day. He's been exposed to butter directly without any reaction.

For dd, desperate to nurse more about sums it up. It's like all she can think about all day long is when she's getting her next hit. Normally, she just gets milk at night and maybe once during the day.

I stopped the cell salts cause I couldn't handle dd's whining and wanted to figure out the trigger, but I was taking bioplasma, calc fluor and tonic e, I think. Whatever it was from earlier in the thread. If it was indeed the salts, it showed up within a few days, and stopped about a day or two of stopping them.

Things are a tiny bit more settled now, I could start them again at the end of the week to see what happens.

yup. calc fluor, calc phos, kali phos, and mag phos is a great combo before birth! Sometimes nat mur is needed too, but not as a rule.

Jumping in: I read through the first few pages, but have a baby who will be waking and wanted to ask. If this has been addressed, just let me know, and I'll go back.

I JUST heard about cell salts in a different thread when I'd asked about supplements, so I am beyond ignorant at this time. Ds is 6, has some sensory integration issues resulting in lots of movement, mood swings, and attention difficulties. I've been giving supplementation of magnesium and B-complex, and was trying to add calcium and zinc to the mix when somebody said cell salts.

Can cell salts help with these things? Would it be the bioplasma or another combination?

TIA!

For my 8yo dd with pretty bad tooth decay you (pb) recommended calc fluor, calc phos, silica (maybe?), and some other one but you said maybe for that. So she would take 3? of these 4 times a day. Does this mean she would take 3 of each one 4 times a day or do cal fluor 3 in the am, calc phos 3 in the afternoon, silica after dinner?

I found this thread to be really informative and encouraging, Thnks for sharing your wise and wisdom.

I am wondering does homeopathy treat IgE allergy for egg and does it really help to eliminate them? if so are Cell salts is a good starting point.

To address nagging insomnia are Kalis suppose to help. waking up every 4 hrs and not able to sleep again.

Your feedback will be highly appreciated )

in terms of the fourth I think what I may have said was that someone on MDC says she used mag phos as well. There's no reason to use it for decay, but for painful dentition it's a nice addition along with ferrum phos.

ok just triple checking here but:

3 cal phos 4 times a day

3 cal fluor 4 times a day

3 silica 4 times a day?

i swear i have a brain fog or something.

I've seen the brightdayfoods link before and the nat mur described me emotionally really well. Im guessing that I might need a bigger dosage than the 6x I have for it.

Cell salts, actually just bioplasma at that point, reduced both my kids' need for zinc, it was a noticeable drop (they'd mouth stuff). There's a booklet, The Biochemic Handbook, that's only $4 and really helpful--I ordered just bioplasma and the booklet to start and later added in other stuff--I don't know what, specifically, would help with the other issues you mentioned, but I just wanted to say that the bioplasma alone is reasonable to start with--but consider the lactose issue, my kids are dairy free but seem fine with the lactose, but some kids react.

Yep, but you can give all three kinds at once. I mean...
breakfast (or whenever): 3 calc phos + 3 calc fluor + 3 silica
lunch (or whenever): same as above
dinner (or whenever): same
bedtime (or whenever): same

this.

and...cell salts can definitely help with those things! You'd want a targeted approach, but for sensory issues you can usually safely start with five phos. For attention issues I tend to love impatiens and wild oat flower essences. They're amazing for kids who can't focus.

depends on why you're waking, but in general kali phos would be the best choice barring other issues.

Hey Panser!
Had the baby early this morning. It was a fast intense labor. Sometimes homeopathy worked sometimes not, since I didn't have the brainpower to figure it out.
Baby is very fussy from the very beginning not sure if it is structural or shell shock. (I went from 3cm to pushing the baby out in little over an hour. There was no molding to her head at all.). I'm going to try star of Bethlehem and cherry plum - still need to test if RR would work as well. We will stop by at our CST on the way home from the hospy.

Sorry off topic, but saw that you were active on this thread.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

ooooooooo, congrats!!! Definitely flowers. star, walnut, cherry plum...whatever else seems indicated. aconite may be worth testing as well. Hopefully you're both on arnica?! Can't wait to hear more!

I'm still puzzling on this one. my first instinct is to say an interplay between zinc and silica...but why one and not the other? no answers at this time....

well, I'm wondering about anemia...something that restricts the bloodflow to the matrix...because that wouldn't involve the keratin formation specifically (so hair would still grow) but I don't know. Trying to tease out what would only affect the nails is the puzzle.

are you doing biotin?

And you are definitely not the first person to stump me! Even today. LOL.

Yes, crazy nail growth (hands and feet). Sllooowww hair growth. We have done biotin in the past (lots) but not at the moment.

see? that's what not a lotta sleep'll getcha.

I was going about this backwards. So thyroid stuff has been ruled out?

Did the lots of biotin change things back then? How much were you doing and for how long?

Thyroid stuff has not been ruled in or out. Hasn't even been discussed.

She was taking 20mg and it did not change anything. Not even her cradle cap.
