The homeopathic remedy prepared from
ordinary salt has a profound and long lasting effect on the body's
metabolic processes. It is especially suitable for chronic
complaints. Sodium and chloride - the components of table salt -
are among the most important essential minerals and are vital for
normal cell function. In homeopathic practice, sodium chloride is
known by its Latin name, Natrum Muriaticum. In its homeopathic form,
sodium chloride can also alleviate a wide range of complaints.
Foremost among these include nervous tension and migraines. Sodium
chloride is also used to treat pain, weakness or unusual weight
loss. Like other homeopathic cures, this remedy is generally
prescribed to relieve ailments in people who exhibit certain
behavioural traits. It is thought to be especially appropriate for
frail, excitable and irritable people who suffer from sharp mood
swings or emotional outbursts. Such people have a very low tolerance
for hectic and frenzied surroundings or any sympathetic attempts to
comfort them. Their symptoms are typically exacerbated by sudden
noises or loud music.
