Cell Salts - Homeopathic Remedies for Male Concerns

May 31, 2012 11:13PM ● By Tanya Renner, CCH, RSHom(NA)


Hormonal balance in both men and women depends largely on healthy cellular function. Cells function best when nutrients are properly assimilated at the tissue and cellular levels, and when metabolic by-products are effectively eliminated. These crucial metabolic processes are well supported by the 12 homeopathic cell salt remedies. While other homeopathic remedies are made from minerals, plants and animal sources, homeopathic cell salts represent the essential macro-minerals found in tissue, such as sodium chloride (Nat mur) and Calcium phosphate (Calc phos). Europeans and others around the world have been using these mineral preparations for more than a century to optimize nutrient balance and maintain healthy metabolic function.

Cell salts help to balance essential minerals in the body. An imbalance of these minerals can lead to a wide range of complaints such as headaches, heartburn, neuralgia, anxiety and brain fatigue. When mineral imbalances are corrected through homeopathic cell salt supplementation, people often experience quick and lasting relief from emotional, mental and physical symptoms.

Homeopathic cell salt remedies are readily available, easy to use, and complementary to other healing strategies. In men at midlife, beneficial cell salts include the following:

Sexual Function Issues:
prostration - Calc phos 6x, Nat phos 6x, Kali phos 6x
change in desire - Kali phos 6x, Mag phos 6x, Nat mur 6x, Nat phos 6x

Information about cell salts is readily available on line, and the National Center for Homeopathy website ( is an excellent resource. Homeopathic pharmacies and study groups, as well as health food stores, also offer more information about the use of homeopathic remedies for a variety of issues. While some conditions are easily handled at home, others require professional consultation. For complex complaints, it's best to consult with a qualified homeopathic professional to learn what will work best for specific concerns and individual needs.  Always consult a medical practitioner if there are additional concerns about a particular condition or on-going complaints.
