Tissue Salt #1 - Calcium Fluoride

We find Calcium Fluoride, also known as Calc Fluor, in our connective tissue, our bones, blood vessels, muscular tissue, vein walls, tendons, the lymphatic system, tooth enamel and it is what gives our tissues elasticity. When veins or arteries lose their elasticity we end up with a relaxed condition of muscular tissue such as varicose veins and falling of the womb.

A lack of this salt could also cause:

  • cataracts
  • bony lumps or growths on the jaw or cheekbones
  • uterine prolapse
  • hemorrhoids
  • osteoporosis
  • tumours
  • muscular weakness
  • sluggish circulation
Calc Fluor is also necessary to keep teeth in their sockets and prevent them from decaying.

With a Calc Fluor deficiency the tongue could be hard and cracked, with inflammation and/or swelling that may or may not be painful. Some other deficiency symptoms are cracked lips, cracks in the skin (palms of hands) and between the toes, loose teeth, translucent teeth, brittle, splitting or soft nails, elongation of the uvula, constipation, increased quantity of urine, bleeding hemorrhoids, anal fissures, excessive menses with hemorrhaging and bearing down pains, pain in lower part of the back, and hangnails.

Some facial signs of a Calc Fluor deficiency are fan shaped crows feet, blue lips, brown/black undertones to the skin, small white scales often found on the upper eyelid, cracked lips and translucent tips of teeth. (1) 

Foods that are rich in Calc Fluor are whole grain foods, dairy, raw vegetables, soybeans, sesame seeds, spinach, broccoli and mushrooms.

In a chronic condition, such as varicose veins, uterine prolapse, loose teeth, cataracts, hemorrhoids, osteoporosis, etc. you would take 2-3 tablets, 2-3x per day for 5 weeks, or you can even finish the full bottle. Taking little breaks is important so the body does not develop a tolerance. In this situation, you would take the tissue salt either for five days on with two days off, or for three weeks on with one week off over many months.

When taking tissue salts, tip the tablets into the lid and drop them into your mouth. Avoid touching the cap to your mouth. It is also important to try to avoid food for 10-20 mins before and after taking the salts, and take away from coffee or mint products as it will not be properly absorbed. 

It is important to always let your symptoms guide you, and if you experience any side effect or worsening of symptoms then stop taking them. As your symptoms improve – take less often.

Tissue Salts are a part of Homeopathic Medicine.

Homeopathy, the medicine of energy, is a medical system based on the belief that the body can cure itself by strengthening its own defense mechanisms by using substances selected for their energy-giving properties. Homeopaths use tiny amounts of natural substances, like plants, herbs, minerals, chemicals, disease products or allopathic drugs which are potentized.

Consult a health care practitioner before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Keep out of reach of children.

Claims are made from traditional homeopathic references, not scientific evidence.

Tissue Salt #11 - Sodium Sulfate

Sodium Sulfate or Nat Sulph is a water eliminator and a deficiency of Nat Sulph will lead to an excess of water. Nat Phos which we discussed earlier, is a water distributor and these two tissue salts work well together. Nat Sulph is extremely effective in treating malarial fever as it helps remove the excess water from the blood which is where the malaria bacteria breeds.
