Kali sulph, Joette Calabrese












We’re almost to the end of my cell salt series. This week it’s Kali sulph. I want to share with you how it provided great relief to me personally when I was pregnant, but I shouldn’t get ahead of myself.

Here are a few basics of Kali sulph:

I most often think of Kali sulph when someone feels they are in a confined, stuffy, encapsulated space: think classrooms, hospital rooms or small, tight offices.

Anytime one feels an extreme need to get into fresh, cool air — whether caused by a pathology (such as asthma) or by environmental factors — Kali sulph aids in the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the blood to the cells in the tissues, providing relief.

Kali sulph can be a marriage-saver! There are many cases in which the husband prefers to sleep in a closed, warm room while the wife craves fresh, open air (perhaps even sleeping with her face toward a slightly open window).

Kali sulph can be her salvation! (And it’s much less expensive than separate bedrooms. Wouldn’t you agree?)

Depending on the severity of the symptoms, Kali sulph 6X can be taken every hour. However, if feeling stuffy and closed-in is a good general description of the person — instead of their experiencing acute symptoms caused by something environmentally specific — then I would recommend taking it twice daily.   

I promised you a personal story of how Kali sulph came to my rescue when I was pregnant. With my third son, I was, shall we say, very pregnant. This particular son was a BIG baby — and I do mean big — born at ten pounds!

Now, I’m not a very tall person; I top out at about five feet (on a good day). So, add a big baby into the mix, and there was very little room at all for my internal organs to function properly, especially as he encroached on my lilting lungs. I found it hard to get enough air.

My solution? I would often lie down on the floor in front of my sliding glass doors, cracking them slightly and putting my mouth right by the opening so I could suck in the cool, fresh winter air.

It never dawned on me my homeopathic medicines held the answer to this issue. To me, my symptoms seemed like a natural occurrence because I was small and he was big.

This not only raises an excellent point but also provides a teachable moment: Sometimes when we’re in the thick of things, we don’t fully comprehend what is going on with our own bodies and therefore, don’t always make the proper assessments. It happens to all of us, me included!

In my case, carrying a big baby didn’t necessarily translate to my extreme need for cool air despite it being a certain possibility because, at the time, I was too close to my own situation to actively (and accurately) consider it.

Once I figured it out, I turned to Kali sulph 6X as needed. I certainly still enjoyed breathing cool air from outside, but the Kali sulph was tremendous in alleviating the feeling that I just couldn’t get enough oxygen.

(And don’t worry; like any clever mother, I make sure to remind my son of what I went through while I was pregnant with him. It’s always good to keep the upper hand!)

My suggestion is to incorporate the cell salts into your collection of remedies. You never know when you might need one! I also encourage you to read my entire cell salt blog series to familiarize yourself with an overview of some of the conditions each one addresses. Here are the links for your convenience:

Joette laughingI 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.

    I am completely sold on homeopathy since I grew up with many of the cell salts. But, with my current problems it is hard to find the correct homepathic treatment. Thank you for your information about many things. It is food for thought. Dianne Brown

  2. Kathy Raven Kasprzak says:

    Thank you for sharing I love what I know of homeopathy and I want to learn more. Could you tell me what you would use for a spinal core injury at t12/L1 and have some issues with walking but I am getting better until I fell and now I can’t walk on it and it feels like it can’t take my weight and it is weak now. I have started doing medical massage / medical acupuncture and that is showing some improvement but I just feel like the right remedy and I will be walking again.

    The pin it way of getting cards is very confusing. I will not be able to get them anymore.

  4. Staci Magoffin says:

    So I’m curious how you managed to get back up off the floor once you got down being that pregnant… I usually have to call in reinforcements (my husband) to get me back up ?

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

      It was decades ago but I probably required a masculine hand. Too funny.

  5. Penni says:

    Would Kali Surph 6x work 4 someone that was diagnosed with COPD? He seems to have more of a problem breathing during the winter months and of course during humid weather. They live in South Carolina so they’re weather isn’t too harsh in either way. He is a veteran that was exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam. Thank you for your help

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

      The suffering from COPD might be aided somewhat if the symptoms fit but generally more than just this medicine would likely be needed.

  6. Sara says:

    Dear Joette, would this remedy help with feelings of claustrophobia?
    Thank you for all your effort & time to share to get the word out for our health care 🙂

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

      ‘Excellent question. It’s certainly worth a try but its most likely to act if the etiology of the claustrophobia is closely related to what I’ve described here.

  7. Georgia says:

    Would this be good for shortness of breathe and also heat intolerance?

  8. TJW says:

    Kali Sulph seems like an excellent antidote to the feelings that wearing a mask give many people!
