Cell Salt Series: Nat mur, The Water Distributor

Cell Salts, Joette Calabrese

Did you know our human bodies are, on average, about 60 percent water?

Remarkable, right?

Doesn’t it make you wonder, though, how the water stays effectively distributed throughout our systems? Why don’t we slosh when we walk … or dry up and blow away, for that matter?

Well, it’s because of salt!

While the human body contains a variety of salts, sodium chloride makes up about 0.4 percent of our bodies (fairly equivalent to the salt content of the ocean).

If the delicate balance between water and salt is off, our health — and even our emotions — can become disrupted.

The next in my series on cell salts is Natrum muriaticum. Nat mur (as it’s more commonly called) is simply sodium chloride!

Because we’re partially made of this salt, Nat mur is very powerful in its ability to keep our water content in balance — and the word “balance” is the key.

Nat mur is indicated for both ends of the spectrum — whether our symptoms involve too little fluid or too much. For instance, Nat mur would be called for when addressing either dry eyes or excessive tearing of the eyes (lacrimation), as it also would when craving either salty foods or having an aversion to salt.

There might be constipation (because there’s not enough fluid) or diarrhea (from too much). An individual requiring Nat mur may experience low spirits or dejection. They may also experience weakness as a result of low potassium.

I had an elderly male relative who suddenly became so profoundly weak, he felt as though he couldn’t even lift his eyelids. He thought he was having a stroke! His son immediately called me, not realizing I was sitting in traffic in the middle of Kolkata, India!

I learned the following technique from my friend Dr. Pratip Banerji: So this long-distance advice was to dissolve about a teaspoon of salt into a glass of warm water and have him drink it.

Being half a world away, I couldn’t rule out the possibility of low blood sugar playing a part in this episode, given his history. So, I also suggested adding sugar in the water as well.

He began to sip the soothing beverage while I waited on the phone and within minutes, he returned to his usual self! Even in spite of this occurrence having plagued him for hours.  

Interestingly, my relative had just come out of the hospital only a few days earlier where he had felt this same alarming sensation time and again.

A full blood panel was run and showed no problems! (This honestly makes me wonder if some of these blood tests are not as accurate as we are led to believe! I see inconsistencies far too many times. This, of course, can lead to unwarranted or erroneous treatments dictated by the results of the test rather than the symptoms the person displays — or lack of symptoms, which can be equally important. It’s my belief we should treat the person, not the lab report.)

Anyway, these episodes repeated occasionally, but never with this severity again.

Why? First, he continued to use the salt water blend (with salt added “to taste,” as one might desire in a broth) daily for some time.

What’s more, we added the cell salt Nat mur 6X to his regimen, twice daily, to keep his potassium at a balanced level. Eventually, he no longer needed to sip the salt water and depended on Nat mur 6X to keep his fluids in a healthy balance.

So, think of Nat mur as nature’s water distributor. Whether too much or too little, Nat mur will prompt the body to regulate itself back into balance. And what could be better than encouraging the body to naturally take care of itself?

Pass on the good news of homeopathy!

Warmly,

Joette Calabrese

Or, if you don’t have a group of your own, we can help you find one through our dedicated Facebook page.

We now also offer Gateway to Homeopathy II as an exclusive offering for those who have completed the prerequisite (find the link on your Study Group Resource Page).  The Gateway II curriculum covers cell salts in much more detail.

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.

  1. Thank you Joette
    I have really been enjoying this series!
    Would this work for my elderly mom with dementia who I have trouble getting enough fluids (and food) into her?
    God bless you

      It acts on conditions that are as a result of salt/water conditions. So if that’s what’s presenting, it might be useful.

  2. Mayda says:

    Joette, you are Awesome.

      You’re very kind, but it’s not me; its homeopathy. Pls spread the word about this medicine.

  3. Sally says:

    Under what circumstances is it helpful to give salt water? Would nat mur alone not have been enough in your story? Thanks for the article. I just started on nat mur this week and immediately noticed an improvement in my dry skin. so cool!

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

      When there’s a severe drop in potassium as indicated in the story I relayed. Having said this, most us don’t get enough good quality salt in our diet.

  4. Beth Donner says:

    My ankles have been retaining fluids on and off for two years. I tried eating less salt, I tried eating more naturally, very little take out etc. SO I started really investigating Cell Salts, and before I buy the whole lot of them, I decided to try Bioplasma. I swear to you I think I lost 5 lbs in water over the last week. I am almost back to normal by taking this and by sipping it all day long. OMG AWESOME! If it flares up I will go to NAT MUR only with a daily regimen. Homepathy and Cell Salts are my friends!

  5. Linda says:

    Would this help a person who sweats excessively to address the sweating issue, or just for the dehydration that comes afterward? We have used your “gatorade” alternative recipe with much success in overcoming the headache and extreme fatigue that come on after exertion in the heat. But I’m still trying to figure out what would help with the excessive sweating in the first place.

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

      Nat mur can cover the regulation of perspiration.

      Be sure to read other comments.

  6. Mick says:

    Joette, I hope I’m not being too obtuse; but what does Nat mur (which, I think is sodium chloride) have to do with the potassium level in our bodies? Is it that if the sodium level is off, then the potassium also gets out of whack? Please forgive me; I was terrible at high-school chemistry and biology!

  7. Lisa says:

    Would it ever be more affective in a 30c for swelling around ankles? Or is it best to stay with a 6x?

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

      6x is a very effective potency.
