Natrum sulphuricum is a homeopathic remedy that is the sodium salt of sulphuric acid. It was identified by Johann Glauber in an Austrian spring in 1625, and is also known as Glauber’s Salt. It is believed to have healing properties that stimulate the liver, pancreas, and intestines. This healing salt is also credited with giving hot springs their medicinal properties.

The substance is a mineral. Minerals are used by the human body to make important vitamins. These aid in basic bodily functions. Glauber’s Salt balances water in the body, which aids in digestion and the removal of toxins. Natrum sulphuricum does this by helping the body quickly secrete excess fluids.

Glauber’s Salt is used to treat a variety of ailments. Illnesses caused by changes in weather, grief, and cold, damp climate are commonly treated with it. It may also assist in healing sicknesses associated with the liver, like jaundice and hepatitis.

Natrum sulphuricum’s intestine-stimulating properties make it useful for treating abdominal pains. Symptoms associated with gallstones, indigestion, diarrhea, gas, and stomach ulcers are sometimes eased by it. Other illnesses not associated with the stomach that are treated with this healing salt are headaches, head injuries, and asthma.

It is a homeopathic remedy. In this form of alternative medicine, natural substances are significantly diluted before being administered to patients. There are varying levels of dilution which are measured by the centesimal. When measuring with the centesimal, each stage of dilution is 100 times more than the previous stage.

In addition to Glauber’s Salt, natrum sulphuricum is also known in homeopathic circles as a tissue or cell salt. These are usually taken orally, as tablets. Due to their composition, tissue salts are immediately absorbed by the body. They are generally available without a prescription.

This tissue salt is often administered in tablets composed of a 1:9 ratio of lactose powder to natrum sulphuricum. The powder acts as both a filler and binder with the salt. The tablets are available with no prescription. They are available in some health food stores and shops that specialize in homeopathic medicine. Buyers should be sure to use a reputable source, as these substances are usually not regulated by supervising entities like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Individuals interested in using natrum sulphuricum for its healing properties should consult a doctor before use. It may also be helpful to consult someone who specializes in homeopathic medicine. There have been no clinical trials to establish the effectiveness of tissue salts.

The Health Board is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.

Thank you for this well informed article as there is not a lot of info about natrum sulphuricum online.

While I like using alternative medicine whenever possible, I was skeptical when someone recommended I try some Glauber's Salt for hormonal headaches I would get every month.

I had never even heard of this before, so decided to do a little bit of research on my own before giving it a try.

From my research, it sounded like it could be helpful for headaches, but for many health problems. I belong to a food co-op and was able to order some Natrum Sulphuricum tablets through them.

I don't take them daily, but when I feel a bad headache coming on, will take a couple tablets right away. If I can take them before the headache gets real bad, they do a good job of keeping it at bay.

They don't work as well if I wait too long before taking them, but I like that I don't have to rely on over the counter pain killers to take care of my headache.
