Let’s face it, we all feel stress or some type of nervous tension every now and then. Um....can you say pandemic? quarantine? Enough said!
About two years ago, I discovered an effective homeopathic remedy to support these uncomfortable, unwanted symptoms and feelings. The key homeopathic ingredient is Kali Phos (aka: Potassium Phosphate), which is the sixth cell salt of twelve. It's found in all cells of our body, especially the gray matter of the brain, nerves, muscles, blood cells and plasma.
Kali Phos is especially effective for use with the brain and nerves, which is why it helps with stress from traveling, hospitalization, moving, kids, or other situations that may cause anxiousness. Someone who is restless will also benefit from Kali Phos.
My go-to homeopathic remedy for stress and anxiety is Hyland’s Kali Phos cell salt #6. Here are the two primary symptoms for which I use Kali Phos.
Memory and Brain Fatigue
Kali Phos is also great for sharpening the memory and brain fatigue. It can be used for those who are worn out following a heavy work or study period. Consider Kali Phos a stress buster for students during exam time and those with mentally-taxing occupations, such as accountants and engineers. My software engineer husband loves this cell salt and strongly believes in it. This cell salt #6 also works great for someone who is stressed and worn out from taking on too much. Does this sound like you? It was me, so now I keep cell salt #6 on hand at all times, and take as needed.
Sleep and Restlessness
Kali Phos is also lovely for the simple insomnia that follows a period of excitement, intense work or mental strain, or when a person feels worn out but can’t sleep. Kali Phos works well for people who work irregular hours.
