salt ‘Sodium Chloride’. Known universally as the ‘water
salt’, this biochemic remedy is
responsible for the distribution of water content in the body.

family that regulate the amount of water and its proper
distribution are naturally of prime importance.

circulatory, lymphatic and digestive systems and maintains the
health of the mucous membranes. The symptoms are varied and the

infections with watery secretions. Some symptoms like hay fever,
eye watering, diarrhea, edema, excessive salivation and urination
and the tendency to weep copiously may point to imbalance of water
in the cells. Too little water may manifest itself in heartburn,
dry psoriasis, and constipation.

prescribed by a biochemic practitioner for ailments as diverse as
edema, high blood pressure, hay fever, loss of smell, migraines and

health. People who benefit from Nat Mur are likely to be
perfectionists, overly sensitive and stereotypical ‘stiff upper
lip’ types in the face of difficulties.
When however the emotional floodgates open, they display almost
hysterical behavior. The evenings are a happier time for them while
heat and noise aggravate their symptoms.
