The 12 Active Elements Mineral Salts and their Traditional Uses

Traditional use profile of Nat phos (Sodium phosphate)

Nat phos (Sodium phosphate) has been traditionally used to reduce acidity in the tissues. Acidic residue must be removed from the tissues otherwise it causes irritation and ultimately, chemical and degenerative changes. These changes may result in many conditions and symptoms, such as; gastric and urinary acidity, gastric reflux, indigestion, dyspepsia, difficulty in digesting fats, gall stones, a cream coating on the tongue, conjunctivitis, thread worms, scalding/burning urine, cystitis, morning sickness, gout, fibrositis, rheumatism and arthritis.

Nat phos (Sodium phosphate) symptoms are worse before or during a thunderstorm.

Traditional use profile of Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate)

Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate) has been traditionally used to tone and detoxify the liver and to balance body fluids. Examples of a fluid imbalance may include generalised fluid retention in the tissues (Oedema), or the puffy swelling around a joint following injury. Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate) has been traditionally associated with, liver symptoms of biliousness, gall stones, gall colic and vomiting of bile, and/or a greenish-brown coating on the tongue. Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate) helps detoxify toxic compounds in the liver. Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate) is also indicated for weepy, vesicular eczema and yellow-green mucus discharges.

Nat sulph (Sodium sulfate) symptoms are aggravated by wearing tight clothing around the waist, living or working in a damp environment, damp weather, or during hot, humid weather and/or changeable weather from dry to wet and are improved during dry, stable weather and/or by frequently changing body position.

Traditional use profile of Nat mur (Sodium chloride)

Nat mur (Sodium chloride) prepared homoeopathically, has been traditionally used to balance body water. Excessively watery or dry tissues have been seen as an indication for this remedy. Watery or dry mucous membranes such as might occur with a common cold or hay fever, weepy, runny eyes, lips that are dry and crack or cold sores on the lips, fluid retention (oedema), and a craving for salt, are examples of conditions where Nat mur (Sodium chloride) may prove helpful.

Nat mur (Sodium chloride) symptoms are aggravated by warmth/heat and/or lying down and are improved by movement, cold bathing and/or wearing tight clothing.

Traditional use profile of Kali phos (Potassium phosphate)

Kali phos (Potassium phosphate) has been traditionally used to improve physical and mental energy and to relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety. Symptoms of lowered nervous energy, physical and mental exhaustion, nervous headaches from stress, nervous upset stomach, halitosis, poor memory, easily fatigued or weak muscles, nervous irritability, anxiety and insomnia are some of the traditional indications for this remedy.

Kali phos (Potassium phosphate) symptoms are aggravated by; excitement, worry, mental and physical exertion, cold, early morning and are improved by; motion, warmth, heat, rest, and eating and/or being in gentle company.

Traditional use profile of Kali sulph (Potassium sulfate)

Kali sulph (Potassium sulfate) has been traditionally used to relieve dry, scaly skin disorders such as, psoriasis, eczema and dandruff and to relieve loose, yellow-green mucus congestion that may occur with, sinusitis, rhinitis, flu, nasal colds, coughs, upper respiratory tract infections and bronchitis.

Kali sulph (Potassium sulfate) symptoms are aggravated in a warm, stuffy environment and improved by being in cool, fresh, open air.

Traditional use profile of Kali mur (Potassium chloride)

Kali Mur (Potassium chloride) has been traditionally used to relieve mucus congestion and swelling or bruising of the tissues. Localised inflammations or mild infections, such as stuffy head colds, white mucus discharges from the eyes, ears or nose, mouth ulcers, middle ear infections, sore throats and tonsillitis, acne with white heads, boils, are all symptoms and conditions that may be relieved by Kali Mur (Potassium chloride).

Kali Mur (Potassium chloride) symptoms are aggravated by physical movement, or from eating rich or fatty foods and improved by cold applications to affected part and keeping still.

Traditional use profile of Calc phos (Calcium phosphate)

Calc phos (Calcium phosphate) has been traditionally used to strengthen the bones and blood, particularly for growing children who are prone to teething problems, sore throats, tonsillitis, and poor circulation. Children who have an imbalance of Calc phos (Calcium phosphate) are often lacking in immunity, complain of headaches and pick at their food.

Calc phos (Calcium phosphate) symptoms are aggravated during cold, wet weather or changeable weather, in springtime and are improved during warm stable weather.

Traditional use profile of Calc sulph (Calcium sulphate)

Calc sulph (Calcium sulphate) has been traditionally used for acne and pustules, to promote the healing of wounds and ulcers with purulent discharges that are thick, lumpy, yellow and often blood-streaked.

Calc sulph (Calcium sulphate) has been traditionally indicated where the body has made an opening or vent for the discharge of pyogenic material and where healing is slow or refuses to take place.

Traditional use profile of Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride)

Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride) has been traditionally used to strengthen tooth enamel, tendons, ligaments, joint cartilage, intervertebral discs and veins. Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride) may help cracking, nodular arthritic joints with periarticular degeneration and pain. Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride) may help defective tooth enamel, caries and teeth that are loose in their sockets. Skin on the hands (particularly the palms) that is hard, dry and forms cracks and fissures, or blood vessels (particularly veins) with walls that are weak and enlarged are also traditional indications for Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride).

Calc fluor (Calcium fluoride) symptoms are aggravated by rest, and cold changeable weather; and are improved by moving about, warmth, cold fomentations or rubbing the affected area.

Traditional use profile of Ferrum phos (Iron phosphate)

Ferrum phos (Iron phosphate) has been traditionally used for acute inflammations and infections, where there is fever, heat and pain, such as colds and flu, tonsillitis, otitis media and other minor infections. Ferrum phos (Iron phosphate) may also help with the episodic inflammatory changes associated with many chronic degenerative conditions, where there is an acute-on-chronic manifestation of pain, redness and swelling of the affected areas.

Ferrum phos (Iron phosphate) symptoms are aggravated by physical movement and/or heat and are improved by keeping still and/or cold applications.

Traditional use profile of Mag phos (Magnesium phosphate)

Mag phos (Magnesium phosphate) has been traditionally used for the relief of physical and mental exhaustion, nerve pains and muscular spasms. Examples of conditions where Mag phos (Magnesium phosphate) may be indicated are: stomach or abdominal flatulence and colic; tension headaches; migraine headaches; dysmenorrhoea, (particularly uterine cramping with lower back pain); muscular cramps and spasms anywhere in the body; neuralgia; nervous tics and twitches; sharp, shooting, darting pains; and sciatica.
