Biochemical Cell Salts

Sun Sign Planet Body Part Related Signs Biochemical Salt
3/21- 4/20
Mars Head Aries, Leo, Libra,
KALI PHOS. (Potassium  phosphate) is the Aries cell salt. It is a nerve nutrient with a significant effect on the nerve cells, especially the brain cells. It is used for all forms of mental fatigue, as well as for depression, insomnia, irritability, hysteria and headaches. Nervous disorders and fatigue from long hours of concentration and overwork are particularly responsive to Kali phos
4/21- 5/21
Venus Throat ,  Neck Taurus, Cancer,
Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces, Capricorn
NAT SULPH. (Sodium sulfate) is the Taurus cell salt and the first to use when a person born under Taurus becomes ill. Its main function is to remove excess fluids from the body. It is one of the most important salts affecting the digestive organs. The bile of the liver, pancreatic juices and secretions of the kidneys are all regulated by Nat sulph. A deficiency of Nat sulph. is shown by symptoms such as tiredness and sluggishness upon waking, gall stones, constipation and jaundice.

Complaints caused or aggravated by living in damp conditions, such as rheumatism or asthma, benefit from use of this cell salt. Taurus rules the throat, tonsils, thyroid, lower jaw and metabolic system. Colds and sore throats occur with increased frequency when the digestive organs are not functioning harmoniously. Their tendency to recur with every minor stress can be eliminated with Nat sulph.  

5/22- 6/21
Mercury Arms,   Lungs, Shoulders Aries, Libra, Sagitarrius KALI MUR. (Potassium chloride) is the cell salt for Gemini. Gemini rules the lungs, bronchial tree, shoulders, arms and hands, the tubes of the body and the central nervous system. Kali mur. is the cell salt essential to the formation of most cells in the body except the bone cells and helps cells retain their shape.

Symptoms of a deficiency of Kali mur. are congestion of the bronchial tubes, excessive mucus in the nose and sinuses, or swollen glands, including mumps and tonsillitis. Chronic inflammation of the mucus membranes can occur when the body is unable to break down nutrients and they are being run off in the form of mucus. Kali mur. breaks down mucus and allows the body to effectively create new tissue from dietary intake.

6/22- 7/23
Moon Stomach Taurus, Cancer,
 Virgo, Scorpio,  Pisces, Capricorn
CALC FLUOR. (Calcium fluoride) is the Cancer cell salt. It is an important constituent of the hard tissue of the body, teeth, bones, fingernails, the lens of the eye and elastic fibers in muscle tissue. In deficiency, it causes loss of elasticity in tissue and malnutrition of the bones. Cancer rules the stomach, breasts, body fluids and mucus membranes.

Calc fluor. provides nourishment to the structures that contain and support the body. It also provides the flexibility needed for optimum function of the Cancer-ruled organs. It keeps abdominal and breast tissue supple and restores resilience to boggy or fissured mucus membranes. On an emotional level, it prevents the armoring Cancerians are prone to in their desire to protect their natural sensitivity.

7/24- 8/23
Sun Heart,  Back ,  Solar  Plexus Aries, Libra, Taurus, Aquarius MAG PHOS (Magnesium phosphate) is the cell salt for Leo. Physiologically, Leo rules the heart, upper back, diaphragm and cardiac system. Magnesium has recently been identified in allopathic medicine as a critical mineral for the prevention of heart attacks. In naturopathic medicine, the cell salt Mag phos. has a long-standing tradition of use in situations involving cramp, convulsions, spasms or paralysis. Mag phos. is the great anti-pain salt, a natural aspirin without side effects, and is indicated in all conditions of cramp and spasm--headaches, angina, neuralgia's, menstrual cramps, even the bronchial spasms of an acute asthma attack.
8/24- 9/23
Mercury Intestines Taurus, Cancer,  Virgo, Pisces,  Capricorn KALI SULPH. (Potassium sulfate) is the salt attributed to those born under the sign of Virgo. Virgo rules the small intestine, spleen and lower alimentary system. Kali sulph. improves the body's ability to take up nutrition efficiently, and particularly to make and distribute oils throughout the system. As we age, our decreasing ability to effectively use what we eat shows up in dryness of the skin and hair. Kali sulph. assists (with another cell salt, Ferrum phos.) in the oxygenation of skin cells, and is the lubricant that keeps the body machinery functioning. A deficiency of Kali sulph. can cause eczema, dandruff, psoriasis, or any diseases where there has been a rash or scaling of the skin.
Venus Kidneys Aries, Leo, Libra,   Sagitarrius,  Capricorn NAT PHOS. (Sodium phosphate) is the Libra cell salt. Libra rules the kidneys and lower back, and the acid/alkaline balance of the body. Nat phos. prevents excess acidity or alkalinity, especially in the bloodstream. It assists the kidneys in their function and is used to treat gout, kidney stones, ulcers and stomach acidity. Emotionally Nat phos. is helpful in restoring emotional equilibrium, especially after mental exertion, or exposure to extremely stressful or tense environments.
Mars   Pluto Sexual Organs Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces,  Capricorn CALC SULPH. is the Scorpio cell salt. Calcium sulfate is an important constituent of all connective tissue and is essential to the healing process as a purifying agent. Scorpio rules the colon, sexual organs, large intestine, eliminative channels and outlets and the prostate gland. Calc sulph. provides a protective coating to these organs. When it is lacking we get boils, skin eruptions, fistulas or chronic constipation or diarrhea. Another manifestation is barrenness or impotence, as the body is incapable of providing a competent protective coating for egg and sperm.
Jupiter Thighs. Aries, Gemini, Leo, Aquarius,  Sagitarrius SILICA is the cell salt for those born under the sign of Sagittarius. It is of use whenever there is pus to be discharged, such as in boils, abscesses or splinters. Taking silica after surgery helps minimize scar formation, and can assist the body to expel foreign objects such as splinters. Sagittarius rules the liver, hips, thighs, sciatic nerve and autonomic nervous system. Sagittarians under stress use up their Silica, leaving themselves prone to chronic problems involving liver function or hip degeneration later on in life. Silica is an important constituent of the cells of the connective tissue and the epidermis, of the bones, teeth, even the lens of the eye. Inadequate silica can make the teeth susceptible to decay, the hair dull and the nails brittle.
12/22- 1/20
Saturn Knees, Bones Taurus, Cancer,  Scorpio, Virgo,  Leo, Pisces CALC PHOS. Calcium phosphate is the cell salt of Capricorn. It is an important constituent of the bones. Capricorn rules the skeletal system, especially the teeth, the knees and the joints, the gall bladder and the skin. The body requires larger amounts of Calc phos. than any other, especially during childhood and growth spurts, or when recovering from broken bones. Skeletal problems such as rickets, curvature of the spine and tooth decay respond well to this cell salt.

Elderly people are particularly responsive to Calc phos. because it not only adds calcium to the system but improves gastric digestive function so all vitamins and minerals are better assimilated. Pregnant women find this form of calcium gentle and well received by the body, as do children, who can develop overly strong bones too early if given supplemental calcium in other forms.

1/21- 2/19
Uranus   Saturn Nervous &  Circulatory Systems Aries, Gemini, Leo,   Aquarius, Sagitarrius, Libra NAT MUR. (Natrum muriaticum) is the cell salt of Aquarius. Nat mur. has the effect of attracting or drawing away water from affected parts of the body, to redistribute it wherever it is needed. Symptoms of insufficient Nat mur. are watery colds, dryness or excessive salivation of the mouth, constipation, malaria, even herpes or any watery blisters on the skin or mucus membranes.

Aquarius rules the blood and circulation, the ankles, the spinal cord, and the electrical force of the nerves. Nat mur. supports the smooth and even flow of electricity through and across the nerves. Lack of Nat mur. can cause sleeplessness and prevent proper nerve synapse firing--with consequent learning and speaking difficulties and intermittent nerve pains.

2/20 - 3/20
Neptune    Jupiter Feet Taurus, Cancer,   Scorpio, Virgo,  Leo, Capricorn FERRUM PHOS. (Iron phosphate) is the cell salt for Pisces. It is the only common metal salt among the twelve cell salts, and is critically important in its function of making all of the other cell salts more effective. It is required for healthy red blood cells; lack of it can cause anemia.

Pisces rules the lymphatic system and the feet. Ferrum phos. distributes oxygen to all body organs and tissues, and is indicated in all cases of inflammation and fever. It enables the blood and the lymph to carry waste and poisons away from affected tissue. It is especially indicated for people who are nervous and sensitive, who come down with every transient cold or flu.
