Cell Salts for Stomach Flu

on March 5, 2014

“Is it coming out of both ends?” the school nurse asked.  “That’s what is going around. Vomiting and diarrhea with a slight temperature.” Thankfully, that was not the situation in our home. Some sort of gastrointestinal bug had attached itself to one of my children, but the effect was relatively mild. Supported with cell salts, fluids and cuddles, all he wanted was to rest.

If you or yours are affected by one of the GI illnesses that are going around, cell salts are the perfect support system. Taking cell salts will ease severity of symptoms and duration of illness. Cell salts are particularly helpful for restoring mineral balance after the dehydration that accompanies these types of sicknesses.

You can buy cell salts at most health food stores.  I recommend ordering a kit of all 12 from 800homeopathy so that you will have them all on hand when you need them.

Unpleasant Symptoms

Select one to three cell salts that are correspond with your own and your child’s most significant symptoms.  If you look at the list and determine that more than three are indicated, remind yourself that that healing is a journey. More is not always better.

Give the cell salt that is currently indicated.  When symptoms change, change the prescription.

Diarrhea Symptom

Remedy

Children, in Ferrum Phos
Cramping, painful Mag Phos
Greenish, with vomiting of bile Nat Sulph
Painless Kali Phos
Pale stools Kali Mur
Sour Smelling Nat Sulph
Undigested food, with Ferr  Phos, Calc Phos
Watery, involuntary Kali Phos, Nat Mur

 

Vomiting Symptom

Cell Salt

Acid Vomit Nat Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur
General Recommendation, dissolve all in water & sip Ferr Phos, Nat Mur, Kali Mur, Calc Fluor
Nausea, with Mag Phos
Regurgitation of food after eating Mag Phos
Undigested food Ferr Phos, Nat Phos, Calc Phos, Calc Fluor
Watery Nat Mur

Start by taking three pellets of each cell salt you selected three times per day. As symptoms improve, reduce dosing to two, and later one time per day.

To take cell salts, shake three tablets into the cap of the vial. Tip the cap into your mouth without touching the mouth. Allow the tablets to dissolve. Cell salts work best when taken in a clean mouth. Do not eat, drink or brush teeth 15 minutes before or after taking cell salts.

Common-Sense Measure

Rest, sleep, and cuddles are powerful forces in healing. Give your child plenty of love when they are sick.  Remember to offer lots of fluids. Water is necessary for hydration and bone broths will nourish and support the body during illness.

If symptoms are severe or last more than 24 hours, contact your doctor.

Cell Salts for Supporting Return to Health

Once the flu or gastro issue has passed, consider taking Calc Phos, Ferr Phos and Kali Mur to help your body restore vitality and optimal health.

In matters of health and healing, be fanatical about self-responsibility. Cell Salts and homeopathic remedies enable you to participate actively in your own healing.  At the same time, you should continue to see your doctor for examinations, advice and treatment.

  1. […] If the stomach flu is accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea, it is easy for the body to become too low on sodium, which can lead to a whole array of other problems secondary to the bug itself. Drinking – in moderation – salty drinks like soups or broths is a good way to help restore sodium levels and prevent this common electrolyte imbalance. (3) […]
