Nat Phos And Weight Loss

Sodium phosphate is the great pH balancer in the body and is one of the most effective natural antacids there is. Whenever there is more acid than necessary in your body, your digestion suffers and there’s heartburn, flatulence, sometimes constipation, sometimes diarrhea. All this adds up to your metabolic rate not being what it should with the result of more weight than what should be your optimum weight as well as water retention – which also adds to your weight. If you are looking for fast weight loss, Nat Phos is not for you – it’s a remedy that prides itself on being slow and sure. So no quick weight loss with Nat Phos but it’s steady weight loss till you reach your optimum weight – and the great thing is, the weight stays off!


There are physical, mental and emotional symptoms that call for the tissue salt Natrum Phosphoricum or Nat Phos for short.

How do you know of you need Nat Phos? The signs are in your saliva and your urine. All you need to do is to get yourself some pH paper from the pharmacy and test either your urine or saliva. If the reading is under 6.4, it means your pH is acidic and it calls for this tissue remedy.

Look at some of the other signs that tell you that you could have an acidic constitution. There could be a tendency to gout – with a lot of pain in the big toe - or rheumatism of the joints, the tongue and the tonsils are covered with a creamy yellow coating which screams ‘excess acid’, any discharge from the nose, throat or eyes have that same creamy-yellow color and there’s a certain ‘sourness’ in the perspiration, the saliva, the urine. When the pain in the joints grows less, there’s pain in the chest and very often it is this pain caused by acidity that makes people feel they are having a heart attack. Acid reflux or GERD also benefit a lot from this cell salt.

Eczema is yet another symptom of excess acid in the body and very often, the Nat Phos eczema manifests itself at the ankles with intolerable itching. A deficiency of this salt also results in diabetes which seems to disappear when this salt is given, washing out the excess sugar in the blood as it were.

The mental symptoms are worst at night when the person thinks there is someone in the next room and imagines he hears footsteps. And when he goes to look, his imagination makes him feel that the pieces of furniture are actually people hiding there.

Wow...I'm heading out for my NatPhos stock right away! Is it alright to take it even if I don't have all those signs of an acidic constitution?

Thank K, for reading!

FP - yes, it is - if you need it, it will show at the end of a month on your weighing scales!

I think this one I need! btw, you should've provided pH papers with this one. Just a thought :D

Tell me where to send them - got heaps of them here - we use them in our company to test the pH of yogurt :)

WhiskeyChick 7 years ago from North of Somewhere

You test the pH of yogurt?

Loved the info by the way. So is it ankle itching or ankle swelling that this is useful for? or both?


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 7 years ago from India Author

Hi WhiskeyChick - Nat Phos is for itching not swelling. If it's a swelling that's due to water retention and not a sprain, you need Nat Sulph.

The yoghurt testing is done in our company lab because we have a dairy ingredients company - that was just an aside :)

Garlic helps - so do onions. You also need to drink enough water through the day.

Nat Phosp 6x three times with meals has been shown to reduce weight

Recently, there was much ado about homeopathy in the UK and why it should not be paid for by the NHS. The reason? The BMA or the British Medical Association felt that homeopath is witchcraft in reality its opposite


Gopika 6 years ago

Hi

how much can I expect to lose in a month?

What abt phytolacca berry? Some one told me that is for weight loss?

Also how can the same medicine be good for worms? Can you also recommend dosage for a 10 month infant and also for dogs.

Sorry sooo many ques! But this is real interesting stuff!


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 6 years ago from India Author

cidpusa - yes, it works and so well.

Maybe what one doesn't know, one ;labels as bad - so maybe we should just put it down to ignorance!

Gopika - you will only lose what is extra and it's slower that what most weight loss enthusiasts would expect. But it's longterm and it's safe and you only lose the weight that your body does not need.

Yes, it's great for worms too - for children and dogs. 2 pills twice a day for a month helps and there are no side effects at all.


Trina 5 years ago

I started taking this under a friends advice for my heartburn. Heart burn is much better. I have experienced weight loss but it is by no means slow. In two weeks I lost 10 pounds! I did nothing to change my diet or change my exercise routine. So my stomach feels so much better and looks better too!

Hi Trina - I'm so glad to hear you've discovered the wonderful benefits of this remedy!

Hi Natalie - yes, it is excellent for acidity. As Nat Phos improves digestion, your metabolism gets better which in turn contributes to weight loss.

Yes, Dr Reckeweg is a great brand.


Linda 4 years ago

Will Nat Phos still work for weight loss if I'm taking antibiotics?

Thanks!

Linda


Linda 4 years ago

Also, I'm afraid there is a mistake in the download "Biochemic Salts." Regarding the body's acidity under Nat Phos, it says "If the reading is over 6.4, it means your pH is acidic and it calls for this tissue remedy." I think you mean "under" 6.4.

Thank you for posting this booklet online and for free! It's loaded with great information.

Linda :)


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Hi Linda - it will - in fact, Nat Phos helps the acidity that usually accompanies antibiotics. I'm sorry about the pH in the ebook - please correct it - I will put up the corrected version in a bit if you would like to download it. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention.


Lovely Sharma 4 years ago

Hi, i am using Dr. Reckeweg Nat Phos 6X for wieght reduction.

Would you like to suggest, any other brand Nat Phos 6X Tablets, which helps me in fast & soon weight loss.

Pls suggest & also the dosage to be taken.


scottandot 4 years ago

I'm confused about the acid levels you mention. I was recently diagnosed with gout (in my knee) and told my uric acid levels are at 7.5. Is this different from theacid levels you mention - and will Nat Phos help me?


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Hi Lovely - Dr. Reckenweg is one of the best brands, 3 pills 3 times a day is what you should take.

Hi scottanddot - uric acid levels are different from the pH levels in the body. Yours should be lower than 7. You should try taking Nat Sulph 6x and Calc Phos 6x.


scottandot 4 years ago

Thank you! Am I correct to assume I should take the same dosage that you suggested for "Lovely"?


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Hi scottanddot - yes, 3 pills thrice a day of both remedies - keep a 5-minute gap between both. Let me know how it goes in a week.


scottandot 4 years ago

Hi Nicole - I'm sure you can get it from the Allisone store in Cape Town. Or you could order from their website online.


nicole 4 years ago

Awesome! Thanks so much. Am so excited to try it as am battling with GERD and am putting weight at a rapid pace, ever since have been on prescription antacid medication. I don't suppose you would know if there is anywhere in Johannesburg selling the nat phos 6x?


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Maybe you could try the PharmaNatura stores, Nicole?


nicole 4 years ago

Hi there, thanks for the advice, I managed to find the AllisOne Nat Phos. It says that it is the triple strength D6 composition, how many tabs shld I be taking to achieve weight loss?


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Hi Nicole - sorry for the late reply! You can take 3 tabs twice a day.


Ñicole 4 years ago

Hi again, sorry for all my questions! If I am taking 2 different tissue salts shld there be a time frame between doses or can I take them at the same time? Both are 3tabs twice a day. Thanks for all your advice. :)


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

A 10-minute break between the two would be good. And remember, for best results, nothing to eat or drink fifteen minutes before and fifteen minutes after the remedies.


scottandot 4 years ago

reporting back! I have not had another gout flare-up since beginning the Nat Phos & the Calc Phos, so that's great. However the knee pain that began with my first flare-up has never gone away - I guess it's just arthritic changes. It certainly is nothing like the gout attack, with the swelling, heat and pain - but going up & down stairs is still troublesome. I lost 70 lbs. 2 yrs ago (with Dr. Simeon's HCG protocol) & have maintained. Do you think the HCG had a negative effect on my joints? Thank you for your help!


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Hi scottandot - I'm so glad it's helped! It's more likely the weight had something to do with your joints. You could try adding two doses a day each of Calc Fluor 12x and Silicea 30x to the Nat Phos and the Calc Phos. Let me know in a week if those stairs seem easier to tackle :)

Hi rahat - no, they are not antidotes. However, if there is any swelling, it means you must see a doctor and have your tests done as it could mean other complications. Please stop the meds and get medical advice.

Shalini Kagal 4 years ago from India Author

Nicole - that's so wonderful to hear! For your sister-in-law, there's a homeopathic tonic called Alfalfa available on Amazon. Ask her to take 2 teaspoons every morning. Also, ask her to get the regular variant, not the one with Ginseng in it. She could also take 3 tablets twice a day of the Bach remedy Olive. Hope this helps :)

I could use your guidance. I have a fatty liver and recently lost 13 lbs. I would like to lose another 20 lbs. I also have suffered from migraines for over 30 years. I would like to have natural help and avoid so many prescriptions. Could you recommend what I should take and where to buy it. I live in California. Thanks for your help!


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 3 years ago from India Author

Hi - for a fatty liver, you could try Nat Sulph 6x - three pills twice a day - you can buy it online.


Pinknblue2 3 years ago

What would you recommend for the Migraines? As far as the fatty liver, it is caused by my weight and diet as far as the Doctor has found. I don't drink so I'm hoping the cause is my weight and not something more serious. We are awaiting tests results. I would like to lose at least 20 more pounds too, can you recommend any salts to help with that too? Thank you for your response.


Shalini Kagal profile image

Shalini Kagal 3 years ago from India Author

Pinknblue - a doctor's advise is always best - there could be underlying problems for the excess weight. Nat Phos does help when there are no other complications.

At different times on this thread you have said to take different amounts of nat phos 6x as well Sometimes saying to take it before meals and sometimes after meals. This different information is very confusing. Which is the correct dose and the correct time concerning eating meals?
