Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Natrum Carbonicum in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.




In the first edition Hahnemann published a pathogenesis of Natrum carbonicum, containing 308 symptoms. The salt was then proved by Nenning and SchréTerebinthina ter, and their results -making 625 symptoms in all-appeared in the third volume of the of Hartlaub and Trinks. These two symptom lists, with (presumably) provings of the 30th by Langhammer, Hering and Gross, and some fresh observations on patients by Hahnemann himself, form the present pathogenesis.

Dissolve the natrum of the shops (the basic part of common salt or of Natrum Sulphuricum Glauber's salt) in two parts of its own weight of distilled water, boiling-hot, filter the solution through blotting-paper, and cause it to crystallize in a cellar. These crystals consist of rhombic-octaedra and rhomboidal prisms. One grain of these crystals, dried on blotting-paper (before they fall into powder), is taken for the preparation of the various homoeopathic potencies, being treated in the manner of the other dry medicinal substances.
