In this week's blog, I am going to continue to share with you more about Schuessler’s Cell Salts; the 12 Elements that make up the solid matter of the human body. These are the solid elements God used when He created man. We use the Cell salts homeopathically to trigger the body into balancing itself when stress or lack of sleep or some other factor knocks us out of balance.
Over the last few weeks I told you a little bit about the first 4 Cell Salts: Calcarea Fluorica (Calc. Fluor.), Calcarea Phosphorica (Calc. Phos.), Calcarea Sulphurica (Calc. Sulph.), and Ferrum Phosphoricum (Ferr. Phos.). This week I am going to tell you about the Kali's.
Kali is Potassium. It is written that the perfect form of potassium and Sodium can be found in organically grown celery. The stalk contains the perfect form of sodium and the leaves the perfect balance of potassium in proportion to the sodium. (sodium needs potassium in order to be of proper benefit) Good Sodium is essential to cell function. The Kali's are:
#5 Kali Muriaticum (Potassium Chloride)–Kali Mur. has a special affinity for fibrin (thin, tough tissue) and is useful in diseases causing blisters. Indicated in all inflammatory or catarrhal conditions such as chickenpox, measles, burns and scalds, leucorrhea (white blood cells flowing out of the system via diarrhea), jaundice, acne and asthma. It is also used for sluggish conditions, sore throat, white colored tongue, light colored stools, coughs and colds.
#6 Kali Phosphoricum (Potassium phosphate)–Kali Phos. is in all cells, especially the gray matter of the brain, nerves, muscles, blood cells and plasma. All oxidation processes use this. The exchange of gasses in respiration and breakdown of fatty tissue depends on it. It is natures' great “antiseptic” hindering decay in the organism. A remedy for offensive secretions and excretions, for nerve depression or excitement, sexual impotence, nervous headaches, lack of pep, ill humor, skin ailments, occasional sleeplessness, timidity, tantrums, loss of nerve and mental power or after great mental and bodily strain, and for nervous giddiness and squinting.
#7 Kali Sulphuricum (Potassium sulphate)–Kali Sulph. is found in epidermis and epithelial cells. Carries oxygen to the cells. Used for hot flashes; chills; weariness; heaviness; giddiness; boxed in feelings; stomach catarrh (mucus); inflammatory conditions; eruptions of the skin; shifting pains; palpitations; anxiety; fear; sadness; toothaches; headaches and pains in limbs that tend to increase indoors especially in warm and close rooms or in the warm air of the summer; yellow/slimy catarrhal discharges; dandruff; psoriasis and diseases of the nails (rough or ribbed).
Good Sodium is essential to cell function. Without it, there is improper cellular function and all processes will be incomplete. Of course there is the famous banana as well for potassium; but remember to eat organic! Pay the extra 30 cents a pound, just eat less if need be! Remember, it is so very important for all of the minerals of our body to be balanced and in proper proportion. Even a healthy body can use the help of the cell salts on occasion; in addition to getting your proper nutrition through your Food!
