Nat Sulph And Hangovers

Updated on December 19, 2013

Sodium sulphate is essential for the body to throw out the excess water that gets accumulated in various parts of the body. It is also the salt that regulates the bile in the body. When there is an imbalance in the secretion of bile, the liver acts up and its effects are felt all over the body. This is especially so when a person has had a little too much to drink. The liver cannot cope with too much at a time and it rebels with nausea and a heavy head. A few doses of Nat Sulph at night make sure that you don’t wake up feeling like death the next day. Of course, the best way would be not to overdo it on the booze front but if you do end up drinking more than you should, remember to drink two glasses of water and have two doses of Nat Sulph, the second dose ten minutes after the first.

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

A person who needs Nat Sulph is usually worse in wet, rainy weather and there’s a lot of yellowness in the discharges – the urine, thick, yellow, lumpy discharges from the nose and if it progresses to jaundice, then yellow skin and eyes. When things get bad, there’s always a sick bilious rising from the stomach and the mouth has a bitter taste. Nat Sulph is a great remedy for fever that keeps coming and going, especially for dengue fever and all types of infectious fevers.

Periods are very often profuse in women when there is a deficiency of this salt and it could be accompanied by headaches. Any Nat Sulph headache will start with a lot of pain at the base of the neck and then move to the top of the head when the person could feel dizzy with the pain.

Asthma that occurs in wet climates benefits a lot from this salt. The cough usually has a rattling sound, the nose gets all stuffed up and the sides of the nostrils itch a lot. When there is a sore throat, there’s a feeling of a lump in the throat whenever you swallow.

The mental conditions could get quite bad too because a deficiency could bring on thoughts of suicide and the person could get very irritable. His sleep is disturbed with dreams of flying or drowning and he does not get a good night’s sleep however hard he tries.

      Hi quicksand - yes, it's a great liver medicine as well as tonic.

      This facilitates the functions of the liver as well, I guess?

      Candie - thanks for reading - hope you get it at your natural store.

      Amanda - I agree - add dogs that wake you up before 6 am and a hangover is something to be avoided!

      BrianS - busy sleeping off those hangovers haha! Ah yes, those were the days - like you, moderation seems to be my mantra too!

      TOF - will send you a message - he seems fine :)

      Where were you when I needed you, so many hangovers when I was younger. Fortunately these days the hangovers are very infrequent and the intake of alcohol very moderate so there is less of a need for good cures.

      I should have known about this when I was a teenager. Instead I had to learn the hard way! These days I seldom drink too much. It loses it's appeal when you have children demanding your attention the next morning!

      Thanks all for reading!

      LM - you can buy it off the 'net.

      TMG - Nat Sulph works great on children or pets when there's a liver problem.

      Haha Sabu - should have known you'd say that!

      GT - there are various types of asthma so you should take this only if all the symptoms match - otherwise you won't see any change!

      Thanks Shalini

      Just what the doctor ordered. Over the years I have tried various remedies for hangovers, none of which were very effective. Perhaps this is it - eldorado for the drinker
