Confusion With Cell salts

Dear Friends,

Could any of you please tell me if I could prepare my own mag phos 200 c from the same tissue salt of 30 x strength (by possibly diluting it in water).

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear Sujattha, this is impossible, as you are dealing with two distinct and very different scales of potency. I would also not recomend attempting to prepare remedies yourself, without a good knowledge of how to do so.

Thanks for the response. I concede that I have very little knowledge of homeopathy. And there appeares to be very very limited data on the issue of cell salts. Whatever exists on the net is so diverse and contradicting.
However, what I have gathered is that they work pretty much on the same principles as homeopathic remedies. So why can't one dilute and succuse them, if the same can be done with the homeopathic remedies? Just confused. Also could any one please suggest if a person suffering from lactose intolerence could take these cell salts.

First of all do you know how to do it?

It may take more than a week, 24 hours a day non stop,even if you want to do it.

as jacob said - they are different scales of potency.
to get to a 200c you need to dilute differently to that needed for an x potency, from the beginnings of the dilutions. yOu cannot change the mode partway through,i.e. from a 30x, stage.
just buy the different remedy, it's much easier. :)
lactose intolerance may react to the usual tissue salts in lactose. yOu can buy tissue salts from homeopathic pharmacies or probably from here in a pill (sugar) form, or liquid form.

I think I've made it very humbly obvious in my post that I DON't know any much about homeopathy.
I'm a software pro, which works very well for me, thank you!
That is exactly why I'm seeking expert opinion. Have an issue?

Thanks for the kind response. Do you suppose it would be ok to give the liquid drops (say 200c potency) of these cell salts to an autistic kid, considering that they contain alcohol? Also would you please be able to elaborate on whether the liquid potencised homeopathic remedy (c potencies) of these salts work on the same principles as the tablet form (x potencies)?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sujatha

Did I sound harsh? Sorry for that.

If you take one drop of a,say, 30C potency liquid medicine, add 99 drops of alcohol to it, and succuss against a hard sustance for atleast 10 times, that becomes a 31.

Now you have to take another fresh vial, put a drop of this 31 in it, and repeat the whole process to make it 32.

You are a software engineer. So, it must be easy for you to see how difficult it is to convert a 30C into a 200c. : )

Once again sorry, if you felt offended.

Sujjatha most of the time tissue salts dont disturb lactose intolerant people. Diabetics too take tissue salts safely.

Its easy for people from Bengal to get any homeopathic remedy easily. So its easy to purchase the remedy.

P.S I have sent an email to you.

An important reminder regarding tissue salts:

While administering tissue salts continously to children without checking their electrolyte balance it may prove hazardous.

I have seen a few kids administered tissue salts recklessly went on to suffer incurable luekemia.

Hi Sujattha
the 200c potency cannot be adminstered in the same way as tissue salt x-potency. Usually the tissue salts are a much lower x potency than the one you quote here.
the more you dilute it the more you take it away from the level the tissue salts are recommended for.
tissue salts are intended to balance out the body at cellular level, this is the theory.
what are you treating with the tissue salts ? fraid it is impossible to comment on what is ok to give when this is unknown.

Dear Sujattha, you're welcome, and in my opinion also, the situation is exactly as stated by Erika, above.

Erica, Jacob,

Our local homeopath has suggested the remedies Nat Phos and Kali Sulph in the 200c doses to begin with. which is what led me to post the topic.
However, most online Remedy Finders that I log on to (including the ABC Remedy Finder) comes up with the top remedy for him as being Phosphorous. I have checked with some of the online materia medicas. Phosphorous seems to be pretty much the constitutional remedy. I really don't know why the doctor choose to ignore it. Also, I don't know the proper dosage methodology for him (he's 7 yrs old), or else I would have administered it already.
Hope you understand my apprehension.

I'm afraid, the last thing I need at this stage is a homeopath with an attitude. Hope that sort of sums things up at my end.

Dear Sujattha

I'm not clear with your reply.

I will look for email reply to my mail.

Dear Erica, Jacob,

The nat phos 200c is supposed to take care of the high blood lactate level, while the kali sulph 200c is supposed to deal with the leaky gut, dark circles and the cracked lower lip.
I've been asked to administer a dose of each on alternate days.

Sujattha last decade
there is obviously a lot of information about your son which your homeopath has and we don't. So it is impossible to comment on the suggestions made by the homeopath thoroughly.
it is not possible always to find all the information about remedies on this software and it is often the case that other remedies seems more suitable. Phosphorous is a very wide-ranging remedy and in self-prescribing would come up sooner on such software than the others you mention.
if these symptoms are very acute and need dealing with straightaway the 200c of remedies can be used in this way. As said before it is not possible to comment on the choice as this would mean a whole casetaking.
I presume you have checked the qualifications and reputation of your homeopath?
erika last decade
Dear Sujattha, this is not true Homoeopathy. Only ONE remedy is given at a time, based on totality, we do not give one remedy for this, and another remedy for that.
Hahnemania last decade

Now , maybe, I'll give him neither. I'm glad I posted this topic.

Perhaps my boy is better off with the DAN! Protol we've been following.
Sujattha last decade
Dear Sujattha.

I am sure Homoeopathy can alleviate your sons condition, you just need to be aware that not all those who claim to be Homoeopaths practice real Homoeopathy, ask around, word of mouth is a good indication.

The best of luck.
