I bet that one would be impossible to figure out without a professional no?

It's quite a task with a professional! So on your own? Not likely.

I know of a good homeopath if anyone is interested. She totally rocks. I can give the info.

For the cholestasis and edema, I'd be looking at acupuncture. I did it preventatively during the last trimester of my last pregnancy, and my blood pressure actually went down in my last trimester. Acupuncture is so very supportive; I wish I'd done it the whole pregnancy.

And I second the CST. Acupuncture and CST.

mbravebird, that's a great point and one I'm glad you brought up.

Homeopathy has the ability to do everything that acupuncture does, but not everyone will resonate with both. If you have used acupuncture with great success then it is a good modality for you. Same with homeopathy. There are variances, obviously between methods and practitioners for both but the reality is they are truly quite similar IMO/E.

The point is that there are many modalities that are working in their own unique ways to accomplish the same goal. The main thing is to find one that works for you. I know people that had no luck with homeopathy but did great with acupuncture. For me, I don't like acupuncture (for myself personally-not as a modality) but respond very well to homeopathy/flower essences. So I use them and subsequently chose to pursue a degree. There's nothing wrong with trying both and seeing what you experience either! I just wanted to throw out that what I have seen for the last decade or so is that people do tend to have certain things that yield better results for them and they they are more attuned to. That's something to pay attention to.

In a word? Yes. It takes a lot of training, experience and, well...intuition to some extent. You have to know what information is important and what is not-how to wade through the much and find the jewels that lead the way. It's also more than just finding the remedy...it's knowing how to administer it, in what potency and what to do when new things pop up. That doesn't mean that you can't use homeopathy at home, or that you cannot be helped without a practitioner. You can. Plenty of people on the acute thread self dose when they need it. Constitutional prescribing is very different.

But, even after feeling yucky, he went to the store with the boys at 9:00, so that I could rest.

Anyway - to keep on topic. I am thinking cell salts will be good for this. Will sign off, check it out and report back.

so:
nat mur
silica
ferrum phos

Is the ferrum phos actually used to correct anemia in lieu of supplements? My son's on Floradix now because he hated the rx stuff and it messed up his teeth, but I've just learned that his problem isn't anemia per se, but low iron binding capacity (his GI says because of immature digestive system). It's going up on its own, but slowly. Is ferrum phos likely to help that along?

If ferrum phos is the right choice, it will help his body better utiliyse the iron in his body.
Is he improving without the Floradix? Certainly skip the rx version.

His TIBC/UIBC seem to be going up without any supplementation, but because they're lower than normal, his ferritin serum is chronically iffy. (It was <1 when we first had it tested, and only climbed to 22 after 3 months of high-dosage rx supplementation.) He hasn't been on the rx stuff for a year -- and then only because I didn't know about Floradix.

I ordered some of the ferrum phos as well as some other salts for his teeth and the blend of 12 for overall health. Exciting!

Wow, this is such an informative thread. I have had some cell salts in my cupboard for a while but forgot about them and will definitely pull them out.

I was wondering about my daughter what you would recommend: She is about 4, sometimes complains her knees hurt(sometimes she wakes up crying saying they hurt), bruises easily, doesn't eat near enough veges and good things like broth, has very slow growing thin hair, was speech delayed, gets a bloated belly a lot, privates smell yeasty a lot and she will itch them, when things are bad she chews and drools, is emotional, serious, and whiney.

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!

Okay, got the cell salts to help dd's teeth recover from the yeast and all her juice drinking. DD really loves them and asks for more. Right now I'm giving her two each, four times a day, of calc fluor 12x, kali mur 6x, and calc phos 6x. I'm also taking 4 of each myself and she nurses regularly.

When she wants more, are any of them okay to give more often? Right now, I'm treating them like her multivitamin which she already knows she can only have twice a day.

I still would like to learn more and use them for myself.

Have you considered food intolerances for her? I know this is the cell salt thread, and those can help either way, but I'm just wondering...

I've been using cell salts on and off for years. It's interesting, though, I ahve some concerns about my 13 yo dd that I just can't seem to find the answer for nutritionally and today I stumble on this thread and it seems to answer my questions-get back to the cell salts!
Anyway, just happy to have been pointed in what feels like the right direction.

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.

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!

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

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?

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.
