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.
*Take one dose of Nat Phos after your main two meals every day. Weigh yourself before you start and then again after a month.
*Great as a worm medicine for both infants and pets – without the side effects of allopathic worm medication.
*A great morning sickness reliever.
