General and healing properties of sodium chloride

The basic knowledge

Fluid regulation

Natrium chloratum is fluid regulating. It ensures that the cells can absorb water and also release it again, so that the filling of the cells is always at the physiological normal level. It regulates the passive nutrition of poorly perfused tissues.

Thermal regulation

Natrium chloratum is heat regulating. Thus, it activates the metabolism and helps in the regeneration of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, the skin and all tissues.


Supports the joints

Natrium chloratum forms synovial fluid. Natrium chloratum is needed to form mucin, the mucous substance of the body. It thus regulates the formation and breakdown of mucous membranes.

Table salt: effect for body and mind

Natrium chloratum is common salt. This common salt is present in every cell of the body with a concentration of 0.9% as constant as possible. Sodium chloratum is therefore essential for life. If this intracellular value of sodium chloratum drops, the cell can no longer hold the water, it leaks out of the cell and edema develops. If the concentration is too high, there can be an excessive accumulation of water in the body, which increases the preload of the heart and thus puts a great strain on the heart and kidneys. On a mental level, Natrium chloratum is used in cases of deep melancholy, usually with self-injurious tendencies

Fields of application in naturopathy

[Natrium chloratum]

Natrium chloratum for sadness

On the psychological level, Natrium chloratum is used for people who are very melancholic, always see the half-empty glass, and at the same time react harshly and dismissively to help. These people are characterized by a feeling of being alone, which forces them to make everything up only with themselves. Characteristic is the tendency to self-injury and self-overload.

Natrium chloratum for rheumatism

With Natrium chloratum, the fine membranes of the joints and mucous membranes tend to be too dry. The result is an increased tendency to become inflamed. Natrium chloratum ensures that fluid is again incorporated into these structures, so that the dehydration and thus the tendency to inflammation decrease.

Natrium chloratum for mucus

Mucus can be the result of a misregulation of the amount of fluid in the mucous membranes. As a result, the mucous membrane produces too much mucus. Sodium chrloratum regulates the formation of mucus qualitatively and quantitatively. Thus, the condition of mucus returns to normal and it decreases.

Natrium chloratum for heartburn

Heartburn is caused by too much stomach acid, but also because the stomach can no longer produce high-quality hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Sodium chloratum is needed by the body to form this high-quality stomach acid. As soon as it has enough sodium chloratum available again, it produces less but good stomach acid and the heartburn goes away.

Natrium chloratum for thirst

Thirst is caused by the body not having enough water in its cells. Here, not only the amount of drinking must be the cause. If Natrium chloratum is missing, the body simply cannot bind the water in its cells. The result is that drinking does not quench thirst. If the body has enough sodium chloratum available again, it can bind the water in the cell and the thirst disappears.
