ROCK SALT, SODIUM CHLORIDE

 

Rock salt is used homeopathically for sneezing, colds, eczema, hives, thrush, menstrual problems, and migraine. In Ayurvedic medicine it is given for digestive problems.

 

In orthodox medicine, a high intake of salt is thought to increase the risk of high blood pressure, strokes, and heart disease. Homeopathically, however, sodium chloride is used for conditions ranging from colds to eczema. Both sodium and chloride are essential trace elements, but supplements are likely to be needed only after exceptional dehydration. Indeed, excess is more likely than deficiency, due to the large amount of salt added to common foods.
