COMMENTS Natrum muriaticum is the Latin name for salt and is vital for the proper functioning of our bodies. The body will go to extreme lengths to protect its reserves of salt since depletion results in serious dysfunction of organs and systems and can result in death. Sodium (Nat mur) is used by the body to produce the hydrochloric acid needed for digestion. The relationship between sodium and potassium creates an osmotic tension that maintains the integrity of cells and the flow of nutrients into and out of the cells. Much of our caloric intake is used to run this mechanism. If the mechanism is not working properly we gain what is known as “water weight” and we utilize fewer calories each day. The result is unwanted weight gain and feeling miserable all over. Salt regulates the amount of moisture in the body. Depending on the availability of salt, the tissues of the body will have too much water (edema) or too little water. Too little water results in the non-conduction of necessary electrical impulses to the heart and brain as well as many other serious conditions. Salt is also necessary for the uptake of calcium. It is possible to have adequate amounts of salt in the diet and still be deficient due to assimilation issues. A few doses of the cell salt, Nat mur, can aid the body in breaking down and utilizing salt. There are a great many drugs which create disturbances in the sodium levels of the body!
