Discovering Ourselves through Parenting

Nat Mur: A Remedy for (Almost) Everybody

A few weeks ago, I visited with my colleague and former classmate, Jeff Sorna. As we enjoyed the type of homeopathy talk that only true remedy enthusiasts can appreciate, Jeff said, “Who, today, doesn’t need some Nat Mur once in a while?”

Synchronicity, ever at play in our lives, subsequently led two clients to express an interest in learning more about this remedy. Because it has so many uses, I thought more of you might be interested.

Why Most People Occasionally Need Nat Mur

The homeopathic remedy Natrum Muriaticum (Nat-m or Nat Mur) is prepared from sodium chloride or common table salt. After water, salt is the most widely distributed substance in a nature, so it is not surprising to discover that many people need it as a homeopathic remedy.

Nat mur is the remedy for ailments from suppressed grief, disappointments, and haunting memories.  Most of us have more than a few of these types of old hurts.  When they manifest as some of the symptoms in the lists below, nat mur may be the remedy needed.

People who need nat mur may have some of these characteristics:

  • Gloomy and depressed
  • Desires to be alone
  • Irritable, private, resentful, sensitive (including to noises)
  • Headaches
  • Cold sores
  • Catch colds easily
  • Discharges like egg white
  • General dryness
  • Eczema
  • Dry mouth, extreme thirst
  • The lower lip sometimes has a crack in the middle
  • Constipation

Children who need nat mur may have the characteristics listed above.  Here are a few more signs and symptoms of children who may need nat nur:

  • Catherine R. Coulter writes:  “Natrum Muriaticum is not the easiest child to have around.”
  • Serious and sensitive
  • Find life difficult
  • Dislike excess physical contact
  • Hate being teased
  • Prone to unexpected rages
  • Best left alone  when upset
  • Often slow learning to talk
  • Sometimes slow learning to walk

Nat Mur as a Cell Salt

No individual will have all of the symptoms or characteristics of a homeopathic remedy.   Because homeopathic remedies are prescribed for individuals, not for diseases, three people prescribed the same remedy will likely have come to see their homeopath for three very different complaints.

If you or your child have many of the symptoms listed above, you may wish to consider taking Nat Mur as a cell salt. Take three pellets, three times per day for a month or two. Watch for changes in your symptoms. Note if you feel better in general or notice:

  • Better sleep
  • Calmer
  • Improved elimination

For on-going or serious issues, schedule an appointment with a homeopath who will ensure that the remedy prescribed is the correct remedy for you.

One Day, Two Homeopathy Stories

Soon after I prepared my Homeopathy for Summer post, I was provided with two opportunities to follow my own advice.

Bumped Heads, Swollen Tongue

One beautiful summer day, I got to spend time with two friends and their families. As our visit was coming to an end, two little girls bumped heads. One girl cried for a minute, but quickly recovered from the unpleasant surprise. The other girl bit her tongue during the incident.We could see that her tongue was bleedingas she let out a few screams before settling into the comfort of her mother’s lap.

Because the tongue was already turning purple and swelling, I administered (with her mother’s permission) a high potency of arnica (1M). She was distressed and did not want us to put the remedy in her mouth. After a few minutes, she let her mother pour the pellets into her hand and nibbled them.

I share this method of administration especially for those who have heard that you can never touch homeopathic remedies because this will inactivate them. While it is standard practice to put the pellets into the cap and to tip them into the mouth, it is important to be gentle and loving in administering care. We do not want to traumatize a child (or adult) further by forcing them to put pellets in their mouth in a way that is not comfortable for them.

After about ten minutes in her mother’s embrace, the tongue appeared to be back to its original size. The girl got up and resumed playing. The teeth marks were still evident. We put a few pellets of calendula 30c in her water bottle to assist with the wound healing.

Another important component of this healing: From the first shriek until she returned to playing, the little girl was lovingly supported by her mother as she processed the pain and shock of the incident and released it.

Chair Squashes Toe

Later, my friends left for home and I went for a walk. It was a beautiful evening. I saw six hot-air balloons sailing over the lake. My children were running around happily. The temperature was cool and pleasant.

When I returned, my daughter calmly announced, Mama, I think my toe might be broken. Camp was scheduled to begin in three days.

I soon learned that her brother, who likes to rock on his chair, had landed the chair on her foot. Fortunately, she was wearing shoes and knows how to use basic homeopathic first aid remedies. She had already taken arnica and hypericum from my first aid kit. She had left her shoe on to protect the toe.

When she removed her shoe, it was very obvious which toe was injured. The fourth toe was pink and swollen to almost double the size of its neighbors. I gave her another dose of hypericum 200c. Ten minutes later, she said her toe felt better, but she’s a good sport and the swelling looked the about same to me, so I gave her a dose of arnica 10M. Twenty minutes later, the toe had returned to its normal size. I asked her to gently bend and flex her toes. She was able to do this without pain.

Just Add Verbal First Aid

When I wrote this post, I had not yet read the magnificent book Verbal First Aid.  Please read: When our children get hurt, the words we say can initiate healing or exacerbate the trauma.

Do you need your own homeopathic remedy kit? You can purchase one from 800homeopathy or Washington Homeopathic. If those kits are too bit, consider putting together your own. Here’s what’s in mine.

Homeopathic remedies are very effective and often produce amazing results. However, they do not replace professional medical care. In matters of health and healing, be fanatical about self-responsibility. Seek medical attention immediately for all serious or potentially serious injuries.

Super-Easy Homeopathy for Summer

Using homeopathic remedies, I help my children heal from most common injuries quickly and effectively. (I shared my Super-Easy Homeopathic First Aid tips in an earlier post.)

In the summer, my children go away to camp. They go without me, and my homeopathic training. Because I want my children’s bodies to be supported, as they are at home, I pack homeopathic first aid kids along with sleeping bags, insect repellent, and water bottles.

Here are some situations that are commonly encountered at camp that often resolve with homeopathic remedies:

Common Injuries

  1. bumps and bruises

  2. burns

  3. cuts

  4. stings and bites

Injuries from Hiking or Athletic Activity

  1. dehydration

  2. muscle strains and sprains

  3. blisters and aching feet

  4. exhaustion

Digestive Challenges

  1. food poisoning

  2. constipation

  3. diarrhea

Emotional Issues

Homesickness and various fears and anxiety may also be alleviated with homeopathic treatment. However, these are beyond the scope of this article. Consult a homeopath.

Prompt, appropriate treatment allows children to resume activities and enjoy the camp experience.

*Homeopathic remedies are very effective and often result in quick healing. However, remedies do not replace professional medical care. In matters of health and healing, be fanatical about self-responsibility. If injuries do not respond to the remedy very quickly and/or seem serious, seek medical attention immediately by dialing 911, going to an emergency room, or contacting your physician.

Remedies for Summer First Aid

Even a mild headache that comes on after experiencing blunt force to the head should be evaluated by a physician.)

  • Vomiting and Diarrhea from Food Poisoning
Arsenicum Alb

Homeopathy purists may object to this type of simplified list. They will remind us that homeopathy is about individualization and matching all of an individual’s symptoms to a whole remedy picture. They are correct. But it is possible to use homeopathic remedies in most first aid situations effectively with only basic knowledge because the acute remedy picture is usually clear.

It is my hope that if you try some of these remedies and see their elegant work, you will be inspired to seek further information about homeopathy. You may become interested in trying homeopathy for conditions that require careful, professional treatment. It is much easier to be inspired to want to try homeopathy if you have seen its healing power.

Homeopathic remedies act as catalysts to help the body heal itself.

Remedies may be purchased at most health food stores or through websites such as 800homeopathy or at most health food stores.

In all first aid situations, use common-sense and traditional first aid strategies in conjunction with homeopathic remedies. Remember too, that your loving presence is a powerful healing force. If your child is crying or shaking, allow them to release the energy this way. Support your children with loving, supportive words. “That must really hurt.” “The worst is over.” Teach children how to use words to begin healing themselves by reading Owie Cadabra.

When using homeopathic remedies for first aid, improvement of symptoms should be evident within 10 minutes. If you do not see results, repeat the remedy. If the remedy helps for a while then the pain or condition returns, give another dose of the remedy. If there is no relief after three doses, try a different remedy if it is indicated. If the injury is serious or not responding to remedies, seek medical attention.

Prevention and Health Building Tips for the Weeks Before Camp

Prevention is always the best cure. Teach your children the importance of good hygiene and drinking lots of water in the summer. Assist their bodies in reaching optimal health before camp by providing healthy foods and taking the Cell Salt combination Bioplasma, three times per day, for a week or two before camp starts.

If your child will be in an area with a lot of poison ivy, consider giving them one dose of Rhus tox, the homeopathic remedy most often indicated for poison ivy, once per day for three days before camp. I have used this technique when my children were running around in poison ivy.  None exhibited the characteristic rash.

How to Make Self-Care Work

You know your child best. If your child is able to follow instructions and the camp permits it, prepare a kit with some or all of the above remedies. Teach your child how to use them. Instruct them not to share the remedies.

If you child cannot self-administer remedies or the camp does not allow them to do so, consider sending a kit to be kept by the nurse with instructions to call you if a situation requiring attention arises.

Have a wonderful summer!

Homeopathy and Verbal First Aid for Easier Doctor Visits

If your child is dreading a visit to the doctor, homeopathic remedies and supportive words can help ease the anxiety. Injections and blood draws can be particularly upsetting, even when administered by kind and gentle nurses and technicians. (More invasive procedures are not addressed in this article, though you will be able to modify these suggestions for any situation.)

Parent’s Attitudes are Contagious

If you yourself are afraid of the forthcoming procedures or are worried about your child’s reaction, he or she will likely mirror your feelings and attitude. You may have had painful experiences in medical settings and your reason for concern in cemented in your body and mind.

The first step in making a visit to the doctor easier for your child is to do your own work using Matrix Reimprinting with EFT, journaling, or another transformative energy method so that you can feel better about the upcoming event. This does not mean that you have to feel happy about difficult situations. All feelings are valid.  In doing the work, you make a shift to a place of feeling better by replacing fear with knowledge and acknowledging your fears. When you change your old programming, you will be equipped to support your child and speak up as needed.

Preparing Your Child with Words

This section is inspired by and borrows from Chapter 5 of Verbal First Aid: Help Your Kids Heal from Fear and Pain–and Come Out Strong by Judith Simon Prager and Judith Acosta.

Many children don’t like surprises. Tell your children about upcoming procedures and appointments. Prepare them by using social stories (simple and accurate descriptions of what to expect, presented with drawings if needed) and providing gentle, honest descriptions of what to expect.

Preparing for Injections, Blood Draws, and Potentially Painful Procedures

If your child asks if a procedure will hurt, answer truthfully. Remember that pain is perception and a bad old experience will not necessarily be repeated. Consider saying something like this, “I’m guessing you will feel something curious or different.  It may feel like a pinch. It may feel hot. It may feel funny or weird. What would that feel like?”

These kinds of statements and questions leave space for the child to have his or her own experience.

During the Procedure

  • z_18Take a few breaths to calm and center yourself. If you child is able and interested, invite him or her to join you in breathing. Children might enjoy breathing in a favorite color or fragrance (use imagination) to feel better.
  • Build rapport with the caregiver so that your child can see that you are a team.
  • Ask your child to look into your eyes, out the window, or at a picture or toy.
  • Tell positive stories about other or your child in similar situations:  “Remember when . . .”
  • Guide your child in picturing a happy time and place.  Engage her in reminiscing or telling stories. “Let’s go for a walk in our imaginations. Is there a place you’d like to go?” Let the child answer. If he doesn’t have any ideas, you may help him. “I think I see a rainbow over that way.  Let’s walk over and see if we can touch it.” You may want to have fun sliding down the rainbow, flying on unicorns, or getting caught in a sparkle or candy shower.
  • Use imagery to ease sensations and anxiety. Ask your child what would help and then imagine that unfolding. For example, before a blood draw: “The nurse is going to use a needle to draw some blood. Your body is constantly making blood and can easily let her have what she needs. Then, she will let scientists look at your blood under a microscope and that will give us important information that will help you to feel better. Can you think of something that would make it better?” Allow child to make a suggestion. “Okay. So let’s imagine that there is a marshmallow right there.” Press the spot where the nurse will poke. “It is really tall and squishy. That was a really good idea!”

Homeopathic Remedies for Children Who Are Afraid of Doctors

Observing a child’s unique fears and responses to various situations helps point the way to a good constitutional remedy.  The descriptions below describe only a tiny portion of the remedy picture. They are provided so that you may gain insight into comprehensive nature of homeopathic prescribing.

Consider the remedies below. If one of them seems to be a very good match for your child, give your child a dose of the 30c potency at bedtime for up to a week before the doctor visit or procedure. Don’t be afraid of homeopathic remedies.

Many other remedies may be indicated for your child. If your child is very afraid of doctors or needles, a consultation with a homeopath may be helpful.

Aconite (Aconitum Napellus)

A great remedy for children who have been stricken with great and sudden fear and do not want to be touched. They might feel like death is pursuing them, even when the ailment is minor.

Gelsemium

Children who need gelsemium prefer to be left alone in a quiet place. They are apathetic about their illness and seem frozen both mentally and physically before dreaded events.

Nux Vomica

Irritable children who are hypersensitive to noise and light. These children do not like music, are very fussy and want every detail in place. They don’t want to be touched. Even minor ailments affect them strongly.

Phosphorus

Children who blaze brightly, then burn out. They are also sensitive to light, sound, odors, touch, electrical charges and thunderstorms. They crave salt and are very thirsty. Phosphorus individuals are subject to nosebleeds and other excess bleeding.

Homoepathic Remedies for Children Who Are Afraid of Needles

Alumina

This is a remedy for delicate children who are intensely affected by modern living conditions and over-processed foods. They are afraid of sharp objects such as knives, needles and pins and the sight of bloodThey tend to be constipated and may appear unhappy, like the light has gone out of them.

Apis

Apis children are jealous, rigid, hard to please, and unable to concentrate enough to read or study. They may have many allergies. They are individualists who find it difficult to integrate into community life. During procedures, they may produce sudden shrill and piercing screams.

Silica

These children lack grit and self-confidence. They are sensitive and serious. They will usually give way if pushed, but will quietly do what they wanted to do anyway. Silica children are terrified of pins and needles.

Cell Salts for Stomach Flu

“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.

Homeopathy for Children Who Can’t Even Look at Food without Gagging

Eating. Most parents don’t even think about it. They give their children whatever they’ve always eaten and the children eat. Other parents seek out organic foods, prepare meals from scratch, and avoid fast food. They worry about what their children eat, but their children do eat.

And then there are children who can’t eat anything lumpy, smelly, gritty, chewy, or colored. They subsist on chicken nuggets and French fries or all white and smooth foods.  No matter how we prepare or hide the fruit and vegetables, our children can’t even look at them without gagging. Putting foods of the “wrong” texture or color in their mouths is unthinkable.

Eating difficulties are among the most common concerns of mothers who contact me and participate in my groups. Parents are deeply concerned about nutritional deficits, growth, and digestion.

A Case of Gagging and Regurgitating Food

During my homeopathy internship, a thirteen year-old boy named “Cedric” was brought to our clinic by his mother.  He had been seen for years by various physicians, including numerous visits to a top-ten university’s medical department.

Cedric’s primary complaint was very severe gagging and regurgitation of food. He suffered from headaches and said that his mouth and tongue itched when eating fresh fruit and vegetables. These kinds of unusual symptoms are very useful to a homeopath.  When I looked them up in the reperatory (a book which list symptoms and the substances that have been found to cause and cure them), the remedy that appeared was alumina.

Homeopathic alumina was prescribed and when he returned a month later he reported that the gagging was greatly reduced.  He was feeling good and had experienced no incidents of regurgitating food.

Investigating Alumina

Thinking about Cedric, my own children, and the many others who find eating difficult, I began to wonder about alumina.  I discovered it has these uses:

  • filler for plastics
  • common ingredient in sunscreen
  • catalyst in the process of converting hydrogen sulfide waste gases into elemental sulfur in refineries
  • used to remove water from gas streams
  • in toothpaste
  • in dentistry, it is used as a polishing agent to remove stains
  • in hip replacements
  • in vaccines (see also Is Aluminum the New Thimerosal?)

Homeopathy 102

Homeopaths learn what conditions a homeopathic medicine will cure through the use of experiments called drug provings.  During a drug proving, healthy individuals take the remedy being tested.  They report all physical, mental and emotional symptoms that occur.

This in-depth reporting of a remedy’s action reveals the full scope of a substance’s healing capabilities.  The symptoms experienced by the provers are the very symptoms that the remedy will be used to heal.

Proving Alumina

When healthy individuals proved alumina, these signs and symptoms were noted.

  • Can swallow only small morsels
  • Sense of constriction from the esophagus down to the stomach every time he swallows a morsel of food
  • Violent, pressing pain, as if a portion of the esophagus were contracted or compressed in the middle of the chest
  • Spasmodic pain in middle of chest, on swallowing food and drink
  • Constipation (no desire for stool, even after a week or two)
  • Great difficulty evacuating, even soft stools
  • Craves indigestible things (chalk, pencils, earth, etc.)
  • Food aversions
    • Meat
    • Potatoes
    • Onions
  • Greatly affected by tobacco smoke
  • Rabid hunger OR aversion to food with no desire to eat
  • Itching tongue
  • Fear of knives, needles and sharp objects

Alumina is particularly indicated for delicate children, especially those who have been artificial baby foods.

Homeopathic Remedies for Eating Challenges

If you are wondering if homeopathic alumina is the remedy that will help your child swallow food, please keep in mind that homeopathic remedies are most effective when they are prescribed for individuals rather than single symptoms.

The homeopathic literature is filled with information on remedies for children who refuse to eat. Specific foods that are desired and refused appear in long lists. Effects on the mouth, tongue, stomach and disposition are noted.  Times of day when food is wanted or rejected are relevant. In short, everything matters when selecting a homeopathic remedy.

Nature’s 12 Magic Healers (Cell Salts 101)

Cell Salts, also called Biochemic Tissue Salts, are a great way to dip your toe into natural medicine. You don’t have to believe anything or do anything beyond putting a few pellets in your mouth to begin feeling better.

Cell salts are homeopathic preparations of the minerals that are the building blocks of our bodies. They taste sweet and dissolve almost instantly in the mouth or in water. Children love to take them. My family uses cell salts to calm downease flu symptoms, and, once, to speed the healing of broken bones.

Because cell salts are diluted and potentized, only minute biochemic amounts of the mineral salts are up-taken by cells and tissues. This enables better absorption of nutrients and fortifies and energizes living tissue. Cell salts support proper cell function to optimize health and ameliorate physical and emotional symptoms.  The effectiveness of cell salts has been proven for over two hundred years.[1],[2] 

Where are the nutrients?

After millennia of destructive farming practices, soils are denatured. Our foods do not have the nutrients necessary for optimal health. We tend to be overfed but undernourished.

For many of today’s children, the situation is complicated by self-limiting food intake and digestive disturbances. As a consequence, some children are severely affected by mineral deficiencies.[3] Deficiencies may manifest as anxiety, mood swings, digestive problems, and other signs of imbalance.

Cell Salts are Essential

Minerals are the foundation for enzyme activity in the body. They serve as catalysts in energy cycles and functions. They nourish cells to provide the foundation of a healthy body.

Cell Salts facilitate the basic functioning of cells including water balance, digestion, removing toxins, elasticity of the cells, oxygenation, nutrition, and sodium-potassium balance.

Emotional and Physical Symptoms of Cell Salt Deficiencies

An individual may be deficient in any of the cell salts. Deficiencies may be noted by signs and symptoms of the individual. The table below is a starting point for exploring uses for cell salts.

How to Use Cell Salts

Review the chart and notice if you have any symptoms of deficiency.

 

Cell Salt

 

Emotional Symptoms of Deficiency

 

Physical Symptoms of Deficiency

Calc Fluor Indecisiveness, low self-esteem Chapped skin, deficient tooth enamel
Calc Phos Mental weakness, lack of motivation Nosebleeds, late teeth, headaches in children
Calc Sulph Fatigue, laziness, worries about imaginary problems Yellow discharges, boils, open infections
Ferrum Phos Stimulation and overheating followed by dullness and listlessness First stages of fever (99-101), sore throat, nosebleeds, colds, flu
Kali Mur Irritability, apathy, homesickness, hypochondria Second stage of fever (101-103), coughing, white mucus discharges
Kali Phos Nervous tension, extreme nervousness, moodiness, anger, self-pity Nerve and sleep problems, bad breath
Kali Sulph Scary dreams, sensitivity to noises, irritability, anger Thick yellow discharges, changing symptoms
Mag Phos Sensitivity, impulsiveness Cramping and shooting pains, spasms, hiccoughs
Nat Mur Isolation, control issues, deep grief Head cold and congestion, watery discharges, sun sensitivity, cold sores
Nat Phos Depression, sleeplessness, low self-esteem Acne, blackheads, greasy or brittle hair
Nat Sulph Depression from wet weather or head injuries Swollen feet or hands, foul-smelling gas
Silicea Shyness, lack of “grit,” hypersensitivity, sensitivity to cold Light sensitivity, sweaty hands and feet
  • Select one to three cell salts that correspond with your own or your child’s most significant symptoms. If you look at the list and determine that more than three are indicated, remind yourself that that restoring balance is a journey. More is not always better.
  • 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.
  • After about a month, look at the charts again. Re-evaluate your needs and adjust your cell salt selection.

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 fifteen minutes before or after taking cell salts.

Taking cell salts is a great way to begin exploring the natural health sciences. Combinations of cell salts or other homeopathic or supportive remedies may be needed to fully resolvesymptoms. Contact a professional for optimal results through individualized, comprehensive treatment.

Cell salts may be purchased at most health food stores or from 800homeopathy.com.  (Request the catalogue from 800homeopathy. It is full of useful information.)
