Cell salts for pregnant women:
One of the easiest ways to use cell salts when you are pregnant is to use the Biochemic Phosphates. This includes:
#2 Calc Phos: This mineral supports teeth and bones. If you are deficient in calcium baby will pull calcium for their teeth and bones from yours. So this is very important to take to make sure not only YOU but baby has enough calcium for teeth and bones.
#4 Ferr Phos: This mineral supports blood, including iron supply in the blood. This is a great support, especially if you tend to be anemic or if you have varicose veins.
#6 Kali Phos: This mineral supports the nerves. This can be emotional anxiety or frustration or for the physical nerves and any nerve pinching including sciatica.
#8 Mag Phos: This mineral supports muscles to know how to tighten and RELEASE. This can be calf cramps, headaches, and can be helpful in labor.
#10 Nat Phos: This mineral supports a balance of pH in the body. In pregnancy there is so much shifting that it can be difficult to find balance. This shows up as acid reflux, heartburn or some forms of nausea.
The easiest way to take cell salts is to place 6 pellets in a glass of water and sip.
You can also take 2 pellets under your tongue 3 times a day if that is easier.
Cell Salts are a great way to deal with being surrounded by folks with cold and flu. They can help boost your immune system naturally.
CELL SALTS are Homeopathically prepared from basic mineral compounds that cells depend on. They are small pellets for water or juice.
Take 2 pellets of the #5 cell salt (Kali Mur) at least 3 times a day. This supports the body/mind system to lessen inflammation which lessens your chance of “catching something”.
If you do feel something coming on take the #4 cell salt (Ferr Phos) every 5 minutes until the symptom abates and then take every time you feel the symptom creeping in. This cell salt helps increase the oxygen in your system so it speeds the healing process.
If you find you get every disease that comes along, try the #2 cell salt (Calc Phos) 3 times a day until you find the system is more resilient!
One tasty option is to cut up a red onion and generously drizzle honey over the top and cover for about 8 hours. Drink the “honey juice” that collects at the bottom of the bowl. This is terrific for sore throats. Some folks I know keep this on the back of their stove so it is always slightly heated and then take a spoonful when inspired…and some eat the onion too!
Elderberry syrup has been a great addition to my household. As an adult I take 1 tablespoon of the syrup a day if I hear of lots of disease floating around.
Many folks I know swear by sucking on zinc lozenges. They say they rarely get the disease du jour when they remember to take one daily.
Uriel Pharmacy makes many wonderful products. I find their Dandelion/Cinnabar excellent when I feel like I am coming down with a cold. If I take it as I feel symptoms, at the beginning something, once every 15 minutes, the cold never develops.
ALL of the above are safe for pregnant and nursing moms!
