Sodium sulphate’s cell salt applies to a range of digestive, respiratory, pain and emotional symptoms which are aggravated by dampness, especially cold wet weather or places. Best known for its digestive support, Nat sulph relieves nausea, sick headache, sour vomiting, heartburn, bitter belching, colic, indigestion, diarrhea and a frequent need to urinate. It also benefits headaches, back and joint pain as well as lingering effects of head injuries. Other applications include wheezing, colds with yellow mucus, frequent need to urinate, and periodic sadness.
Natrum sulph (sodium sulphate)
If damp wet days or places aggravate or are in the picture – as in living in a basement apartment too long, this fundamental cell salt can bring much healing support. As the substance most involved in cell density and water distribution/elimination, sodium sulphate is a critical part of our liver, kidney and cleansing systems. While digestive symptoms are its forté, sodium sulphate’s cell salt, Nat sulph, has many useful respiratory, pain and mental/emotional applications. FYI, Carlsbad spa owes much of its fame to this remedy’s source, sodium sulphate.
For digestion, Nat sulph helps many symptoms that are beyond Nat phos’ acidity help. This includes bilious conditions with nausea, sick headache, colic, indigestion, diarrhea and a brownish coating on the tongue. It also relieves a range of issues related to slow digestion including dyspepsia and heartburn with sour belching, sour vomiting and hiccups, plus a frequent need to urinate and painful yellow diarrhea, especially in the morning or following wet weather.
When wet weather affects the respiratory system, Nat sulph can be very helpful. Its colds have profuse yellow mucus, and a rattling thick ropy cough. Acute cases of humid wheezing can find support with Nat sulph as well, especially with professional guidance.
For pain and first aid, it offers unique support. Head injuries long past or new have benefitted from its use for headaches and other pains that linger after the blow. It is particularly apt if emotional changes follow head injuries. For pains in general, its relief covers sick headaches, bursting headaches, sharp back pains, joint pain and sciatic nerve pain if its trademark aggravation from damp, cold weather persists.
Whether related to a old head injuries or weather or human nature, its mental/emotional applications include confusion, periodic sadness, and heightened sensitivity and suspicion.
Whenever symptoms are linked to wet weather or living in damp houses, rainy climates or near a water source, this remedy offers cleansing healing support. As it has no potential for harm and much for good, this remedy offers worry free, rainy day relief.

The usual Nat sulph patient is serious, responsible, closed and melancholic. The patient tends to be slightly less refined than the other Natrum remedies; more focused on business matters than on interpersonal relationships. Yet he may have great sensitivity... Some Nat sulph patients are more wild, need excitement, sexual stimulation and drugs and are more artistically inclined. Grief plays an important role in most cases as in other Natrums.
–Roger Morrison, MD
“Sometimes we just need salt to make green beans green beanier.” A wise homeopath used this line to describe the way a patient needing any one of the Natrum remedies responds to dosing – meaning, they just need a nudge to allow themselves to really bloom.
