Pregnancy protocol for biochemic cell salts

Pregnancy is related to increased nutritional requirements due to the demands of the developing baby. Proper maternal nutrition, therefore, is very important to keep up with the physiological changes and for the health of both the mother and the baby. 

Micro-nutrients are a part of this increased nutritional requirement, and supplementation with multivitamins that include folic acid and iron is recommended by doctors all over the world today. Mineral deficiencies can still occur when the multivitamin supplements are not absorbed properly, and the needs are not met with dietary changes. 

The biochemic cell salts pregnancy protocol helps to meet the increased requirement of micro-nutrients and maintains the balance of these minerals in the mother's body. The cell salts are easily assimilated because they are diluted micro-doses. Many women also experience nausea and vomiting during pregnancy and are unable to take their prenatal multivitamins. Biochemic cell salts can help at these times because they are easy to take and they do not cause unwanted side effects like nausea or constipation.

The protocol is as follows:


Months 2 and 6 - Calcarea flour, Ferrum phos, Mag phos
Months 3 and 7 - Calcarea flour, Mag phos, Natrum mur
Months 4 and 8 - Calcarea flour, Natrum mur, Silicea
Months 5 and 9 - Calcarea flour, Ferrum phos, Silicea

Take 1 pill of each remedy in 6x potency two times a day. The pills can also be dissolved in 4 oz (50 ml) of water and a sip of this water can be taken two times a day. 

How do these salts help?


Calcarea flour - Helps in development of bones, and maintains elasticity of connective tissue. This is very important for the mother since the pelvic bones and muscles stretch and need to be supple.

Ferrum phos - Helps in building hemoglobin and maintains iron levels.

Mag phos - Acts on nerves and prevents cramps.

Nat mur - Maintains water content in the body and prevents foot swelling, high blood pressure, and edema.

Silicea - It is the main constituent in the hair, nails, and connective tissue. It helps to maintain overall health of the mother and baby.
