Breaking down stomach acids, lactic acids and acidic deposits is the specialty of this cell salt and its source nutrient. In digestion, it offers balancing relief when fatty or sugary foods lead to sugar highs, heartburn, gas or diarrhea. If muscles and joints cramp and stiffen after shock or exercise, it helps break down lactic acid and relieve pain. It relieves a range of other acidity induced symptoms including: sick headaches, sluggish sour digestion, stiff joints, fatigue and indifference, especially if tongue has a yellow coating.
As defined in Scheussler’s Biochemistry, this cell salt’s primary role in the body is to decompose acids. Thus its remedy, Nat phos, offers an extremely safe way to treat a range of acid-related conditions in all ages and stages of life.
The sodium phosphate in our digestive tracts breaks down stomach acids and regulates bile. When overwhelmed by fatty, bitter or sugar-filled foods and beverages, including alcohol, the body cannot make enough sodium phosphate to handle all the stomach acids needed for digestion. As a result, we get acid symptoms like heartburn, diarrhea, gas, sour belching and a yellow coating on the back of the tongue. In babies, Nat phos is a very natural gentle way to relieve colic, sour vomiting and sour smelling green diarrhea. In children, Nat phos can ease the crash and headaches of sugar highs. As a safe source for heartburn relief during pregnancy, Nat phos is irreplaceable. Top of the head headaches and sick headaches with sour vomiting find relief in it whether due to morning sickness, dietary excesses or illness.
The sodium phosphate in our muscles keeps them limber and gliding smoothly. When exercise or shock deprives muscles of oxygen, they fill with lactic acid, cramp and stiffen until sodium phosphate breaks down the acids. Thus Nat phos can save hours of discomfort after workouts, weight-lifting or accidents.
Sodium phosphate is also critical in our joints, to keep them free of acidic deposits. Thus the remedy supports balancing relief for stiff or inflamed joints.
When ignored, acidity leads to sick headaches, fatigue, sluggish sour digestion, stiff musculoskeletal symptoms and head colds with yellow mucus and a painful cough. In any of these circumstances, the cell salt remedy Natrum phos, can help the body find its natural balance of sodium phosphate and acidity.
The need for Nat phos’ help is most marked by two typical symptoms of acid buildup and resulting congestion: sourness– sour belching, vomiting, sour smelling perspiration; and yellowness– yellow mucus, a yellow coating on the back of the tongue, and yellow skin issues. Nat phos symptoms usually worsen after eating bitter or fatty foods and from mental exertion. Those most in need grow fearful at night and suffer nervous fatigue, indifference and mental dullness.
