Five Tissue Salts for Respiratory Illnesses
The salts you will want to have handy as respiratory illnesses are on the rise include: Calcarea Sulphurica (Tissue Salt #3), Ferrum Phosphoricum (Tissue Salt #4), Kali Muriaticum (Tissue Salt #5), Kali Sulphuricum (Tissue Salt #7) and Natrum Sulphuricum (Tissue Salt #11).
1. Calcarea Sulphurica #3
Calcarea Sulphurica or calcium sulphate, often just called Calc Sulph, is a blood purifier and helps to rid the body of unwanted materials and invaders. This can include viruses and mucus caused by respiratory infections. Take this tissue salt upon the first onset of symptoms to help lessen the severity and duration of your respiratory illness.
Calcarea Sulphurica #3
Calc Sulph can help reduce these issues:
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
- Sinus headache
- Rattling cough
- Sore throat
- Itchy eyes
2. Ferrum Phosphoricum #4
Ferrum Phosphoricum or iron phosphate, frequently referred to as Ferr Phos, improves the levels of oxygen in your blood. Oxygen-rich blood is vital for optimal cell function throughout your body. Known as the “First Aid Cell Salt,” Ferr Phos fights the inflammatory effects of disease and should be taken early on when symptoms are first noticed, and frequently during the acute phase of an illness. Consider taking Ferr Phos daily at the beginning or throughout flu season as a precautionary measure.
Ferrum Phosphoricum #4
Ferr Phos can help with these inflammatory affects:
3. Kali Muriaticum #5
Kali Muriaticum or potassium chloride, short Kali Mur, improves healthy cell functions specifically by cleansing and optimizing the fluids found around cells. This is valuable to take during times of illness and gives your body the boost it needs to get better faster. The mineral, potassium chloride, is vital to healthy mucous membranes, saliva, interstitial fluid, and glands.
Kali Muriaticum #5
- Cough and congestion
- Sore throat and sinus pressure
- Swollen glands
- Ear infections with crackling sounds
4. Kali Sulphuricum #7
Kali Sulphuricum or potassium sulfate, short Kali Sulph, is referred to as the cell lubricant and is especially needed if you are experiencing sticky-yellow mucous discharge, often occurring during the later stage of infections. In addition to supporting irritated mucous linings, it also encourages perspiration to rid the body of toxins and encourage healing.
Kali Sulph also plays an important role in cellular oxygenation by regulating the exchange of carbon dioxide between the cells and blood.
Kali Sulphuricum #7
The tissue salt potassium sulfate can help with these complaints:
- Yellow mucous discharge when coughing or sneezing
- Sinus infections
- Pain and irritability
- Dizziness or fatigue from poor oxygenation of the cells
5. Natrum Sulphuricum
Natrum Sulphuricum or sodium sulfate, often called Nat Sulph, is a mineral combination your body needs for the elimination of excess and waste fluids. This cell salt supports the proper function of your liver and the healthy flow of bile. Called the detoxification salt, it helps the organs and tissues of your excretory system remove waste. Nat Sulph is the primary remedy for influenza or the flu.
Natrum Sulphuricum #11
Nat Sulph can help with the following cold and flu symptoms:
- Green mucous discharges
- Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
- Asthmatic symptoms with rattling cough and wheezing
- Conditions that are worse with humidity
