Homeopathic Tissue Salts and Digestive Health

Tissue salts are the lowest dilution of homeopathic remedies available to the public for them to manage their health and wellness. Theses tablets are larger than the 6X-50M pellets that are available for chronic and acute illnesses, and are usually incorporated into everyday routine, not unlike a supplement.

The Natrum's (aka the Sodiums) cell salts work together to maintain the water balance in the body: within the cells and around the cells. They also work together to support the digestive tract.

Learn a little about each one’s role within the digestive system.

Natrum muriaticum (Sodium chloride)

Controls level of water or hydration within cells. To be thought of for problems with a lot of dryness or too much saturation (bloating). Affinity for mucus lining of the digestive tract.

Symptoms which may suggest Natrum muriaticum : Pressure and distention of stomach with craving for salty foods. Constipation from dryness of mucus linings, torn, smarting feeling after stool, anal fissures. DRYNESS. Constipation with watery discharges in other parts (eyes, salivation, etc.).

These symptoms are indicative of IBS and IBD complaints and can be helpful in managing chronic digestive ailments.

Natrum phosphoricum (Sodium phosphate)

Known as the cell salt antacid (without the potential side effects). Among other very important important, Natrum phosphoricum is important in emulsifying fatty acids. This makes it an important remedy for all indigestion, heartburn, and stomach complaints, especially when it is aggravated by fatty or greasy foods.

This remedy is seen in those with gallbladder colic and fat digestion issues. Unlike antacids, homeopathic remedies have no effect on the pH of the stomach, which means it does not disrupt the release of digestive acids into the stomach.

Natrum sulphuricum (Sodium sulfate)

Controls how much water the body flushes from the system. It aids and regulates the excretion of extra water of extra water in the body, from edemas, breaking down of lactic acids etc.

Natrum sulph and Natrum mur can be thought to have opposite roles in the body. Natrum mur brings water into the body to be used in the cells and Natrum sulph attracts water to secure its elimination. It is also important for stimulating the epithelial cells of the bile ducts, pancreas, and intestinal canal, helps their normal functioning.

Symptoms which may suggest Natrum sulphuricum : flatulent colic (painful gas) with constipation, daily loose/diarrheaic stools (especially if the urges drives one out of the bed in the morning).

These are indicative to IBS, IBD and Celiac symptomatology and work in conjunction with steroid anti-inflammatories.

These are just some of the side-effect free homeopathic remedies that can aid in digestive and intestinal health.

When dosing tissue salts (or any homeopathic pellet), place the tablet under the tongue and let it dissolve naturally. Under the tongue (or sublingual), is the best way of dosing homeopathic remedies. This area has thin tissue that is well vasculated, with the remedy being quickly absorbed directly unto the system from this location.

Do not consume food or drink for at least 20min after dosing otherwise you may dilute the remedy and its action.


Tissue salts can be purchased from any good health food store or organic grocer that has a natural or organic section within it's store.
