Cell salt #5 is associated with the color WHITE: White tongue, White mucus, White pus. Kali Mur is the fifth of the twelve cell salts.
Where is Kali Mur found?
It is primarily found in muscle, nerve, blood and brain cells.
How can Kali Mur help you?
Without the right balance of potassium chloride, fibrin, which is the clot former/coagulant, cannot be made, broken down, or kept in proper solution in the body. A state of fibrin deficiency shows up as a white coating on the tongue or in white slime or phlegm via mucus, blisters, or scaly skin eruptions. Kali Mur can be a great cleansing agent.
It makes sense Kali Mur is useful in the treatment of all inflammatory or catarrhal conditions such as everyday colds, coughs, bronchitis and chickenpox, measles, burns, leucorrhea (white blood cells flowing out of the system via diarrhea), jaundice, acne and asthma.
It slows the discharge of inflammatory secretions during illness and helps rebuild the weakened system to a more healthy state.
In addition, this remedy is useful for a white or gray coated tongue and any glandular swellings and mucus coming from the nose and/or eyes.
Whether from sinus pain or indigestion, a heavy headache can find comfort in Kali mur, too.
The key point to remember about Kali Mur is that it is the remedy for sluggishness as it has the ability to add vitality and energy to the body.
