Cell Salts Joette Calabrese

You may be asking, “What on earth do David and Goliath have to do with cell salts?” Well, let me tell you a story about my father’s experience with Nat phos.

You see, my father carried a five-pound jug of Tums around with him in his car. I have no idea where he even found this gargantuan size. But, I’m not kidding; he practically bought Tums by the oil drum!

Why did he need so many? Because he popped them in his mouth all the time. They’d work for a short time, but then he’d eat something again and have to pop a couple more. Tums were his constant companion.

When I first started learning about homeopathy, I said, “Dad, why don’t we replace your Tums with the cell salt Nat phos 6X.”

Visualize this — my little, itsy-bitsy bottle of Nat phos was suddenly in a face-off against his giant drum-size of Tums. It was like David versus Goliath. You remember how that battle turned out, right? Well, this battle was no different.

Dad loved this small, elegant homeopathic medicine because it fit in his shirt pocket, whereas his giant Clorox-bottle of Tums wasn’t exactly portable.

He most especially loved that he no longer was popping tablets into his mouth continually.

At first, he had to take his Nat phos several times a day: before every meal and before bed. But in short order, he could take it once a day (before lunch and wouldn’t need it again before dinner or before bed).

Soon, he only required it every couple of days. And, eventually, he could eat almost anything! He just needed it on certain occasions when he ate poorly — most specifically, fried foods from restaurants.

David — little, tiny Nat phos — beat the stuffing out of the Goliath Tums!

So, you can imagine my surprise, when a couple of years later, I noticed my father popping a Tums into his mouth.

His acid indigestion had returned, and — even though he was a brilliant man, a trained musician, and an excellent businessman — he had completely forgotten the success he had with Nat phos. (Or maybe it was just because he had an inventory of thousands of Tums in “back stock” and wanted to use them up.)

I said, “Dad, what are you doing? Why aren’t you taking Nat phos?”

“Oh, yeah. That’s right!” And with that, he returned to his shirt-pocket-sized homeopathic remedy. This time, his acid indigestion was uprooted in much shorter order — a couple of weeks rather than a couple of months. That’s how homeopathy works!

So, when you think of acidity, think of Nat phos. It can be beneficial in cases of gout (described in a Moms with Moxie podcast as one remedy we use in conjunction with others).

It can also help with weight gain, as described in my blog, Fat, Frumpy and Frustrated (especially for those with acidity issues indicated by soft, sour stools or even turning jewelry green on fingers).

Like all homeopathic remedies, Nat phos may come in a small bottle, but it packs a powerful (and victorious) punch!

Warmly,

Joette Calabrese

 

 

P.S. If you’re interested in learning more about the cell salts, and how I use Nat phos for a host of other conditions, check out my CD/digital download entitled, Cell Salts; The Easy Homeopathy™ to help you get a firm grasp on all of the cell salt remedies. Nat phos actually has hundreds of uses that I know you’ll put into service in no time.

And of course,  if digestive issues are your specific interest, my course Good Gut, Bad Gut goes deeply into many seemingly complicated topics relating to the digestive system. (Actually, with my protocols, they’re often super easy to fix.)

P.P.S. For the other free blog posts in my series on the cell salts, here are the links for your convenience:

P.P.S.  For you GateWay to Homeopathy A Guided Study Group graduates, keep your groups together. You’ll want to know Cell Salts like the back of your hand – GateWay II is coming so get at the top of the list.   ( Watch your inboxes for an email this week! )

 

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.

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.

    What cell salts would you recommend for a childs teeth that are decalcifiying. Dentist says it is not cavities but decalcification. Note her baby teeth completely crumbled starting at age 2. Had 4 crowns on the two year molars until the tooth under it discinigrated. She was breastfeed until 4 1/2 years old. has good nutrition, raw milk, etc. Any ideas to start with? I have had her on cal phos cell salts for about 6mo.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      You’ll learn about this condition as you study further in my cell salt CD and courses. Meanwhile, CP is a v. good place to at least start.

  2. Stephanie says:

    Any ideas would help

    I am finding it difficult to “get a card”, Lately, the “I am not a robot” is not working properly.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I’m having my IT person contact you.

      1. Holly S says:

        I am having the same problem with getting the remedy card.

        1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

          Stephanie will contact you.

  4. Holly says:

    My father-in-law has gout in his ankle that flairs up on and off. I clicked over to read about it on the podcast as well. My question is how/when do you know to use the cell salt vs the 30c?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      It’s a matter of learning specific protocols.

  5. Suzie Homemaker says:

    Boo whoo it did t work for fat fruppy me. But I fit that pitcue. But it takes care of the acid for me great. Just didn’t or hasn’t help me lose and been taking for months for acid.

  6. Lisa says:

    I’ve also had trouble with getting to the remedy cards lately. The robot test comes up, but it won’t work right. Can an IT person help me too?

  7. Penny says:

    Can we take it as often as needed

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Its often taken as needed but within reason. This means once it begins to act we stop and resume only as its called for.

  8. Meghan says:

    I just received your Top 100 Remedies kit in the mail and am super excited to finally have my own kit. I know you mentioned above that it depends on the protocol, but I was wondering if there are any protocols that call for 30c? I’ve hunted around and have only found 6x protocols, and I’m just curious about the principle behind why the lower dose is better for cell salts (if that’s even the case).

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Yes, there are plenty of protocols that include 30c but if you want to learn how to use 30c potencies, you might want to start or join a Gateway to Homeopathy study group. We concentrate on 30c more in these study groups.

  9. Sarah Daggett says:

    Do you have any recommendations on your website for water retention? I did a word search, but nothing came up.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I have not written on the subject.

  10. Meghan says:

    Thanks so much for the response, Joette, and I’m sorry, I didn’t ask the question well. I was wondering specifically about using the 30c potencies of the cell salts in my kit. Incidentally, I just finished leading a Gateway I group–loved it, learned so much!! But again, even in the First Aid section, the cell salts are used in only a 6x potency. I’m curious as to why the lower dose prevails!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      They don’t prevail, they are just used for different situations.

  11. Mike says:

    If I have reasons to take a few different cell salts, wouldn’t it make sense to take the Bioplasma instead?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Its always better to be as tidy as possible in terms of what you’re using. Begin with the idea that we all need all of the cell salts. It’s a matter of the most needed ones that cover the most noteworthy symptoms.

  12. Alison says:

    Hi Joette! Would Nat Phos 6x be a good remedy for when you have overdone it in the garden or done too much housework and are feeling achy in your muscles with lactic acid buildup? I was wondering if it would help with this type of acidity? (I just finished scrubbing all the grout on our tile floors, and now have really achy arms!)

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Yes, it’s a good choice.
