Kali phos?

Wait … what?

Don’t let your college student leave without the “Back to School” cell salt, Kali phos. If your child has already left for school, send it as a surprise care package!

When I sent my sons off to school, I made sure they each had a bottle of this priceless cell salt with them. It’s invaluable for the mental stress college students invariably experience.

Why? Because Kali phos is a nerve nutrient — primarily focused on central nervous conditions. On my CD, Cell Salts; the Easy Homeopathy, I discuss the importance of this medicine for general wellbeing and a contented disposition, as well as the sharpening of mental abilities.

I’ve called it the “happy cell salt”. But it could also be called the “smart cell salt” as well. (If professors knew this, they might choose to keep a big bowl of Kali phos on their desks for their students!)

Symptoms calling for Kali phos include feeling ill-humored, lazy, irritable, or over-fatigued yet experiencing insomnia — as a result of mental over-exertion.

Kali phos is tailor-made for intense studying. If your child is worrying about upcoming exams? Kali phos. If your child complains she can’t remember what she just finished studying? Kali phos. If your child calls to say, “If I could JUST SLEEP!!!” That’s Kali phos.

And before I forget, if your child is a student athlete, Kali phos is also helpful for physical over-exertion that leads to these same symptoms.

So, how would they utilize it? Well, Kali phos 3X or 6X is generally taken twice a day for as long as the symptoms persist. If necessary, it can be used for long periods of time — as long as the stress remains. If the symptoms abate, the remedy is then discontinued until such time that the symptoms might return.

(Note: when Kali phos — also known as Kali phosphoricum or Dipotassium phosphate — is used in the 30th or 200th potency, it is still considered a cell salt. But, here we are specifically referring to its utilization in the 3rd or 6th potency. I like to use 3X, but it’s often difficult to find. In the United States, we usually find 6X readily available and of good service.)

How much more effective and efficient will your college student be when their nervous systems are bolstered, and they are less fatigued? With the high cost of college tuition these days, buying a little study “insurance” for around $12 is a no-brainer! That’s why I always say every mother should make sure their college-bound child has a bottle of Kali phos on their desk, just as my sons do! It may be the best going-away gift you could give them.

Pass on the good news of homeopathy!


P.S. While we’re on the subject, if your child is away at school, be sure to send a homeopathy kit along with them. Illnesses and issues will arise while they’re away — it’s only natural. When you advise them what remedy to take, it won’t do them any good if they don’t have it on hand!

I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.
