Tissue Salts – Pregnancy Program (Blog)

Tissue salts are low potency homeopathics, which can be useful during pregnancy as they support development, enhance assimilation and help with uptake of food and nutrients in both mum and bub. They work by balancing the system rather than supplementing through diet or other products.

During pregnancy both mother and baby will require support for different functions and processes at different stages of development, sometimes at the expense of the mother.

The Tissue Salt Pregnancy Program helps balance any potential deficiencies, ensure supplements and dietary requirements are enhanced and help mum and baby through this important time.

We have added homeopathic zinc to our pregnancy program, given its importance for the immune system and general development.

We suggest taking your pregnancy program tissue salts twice a day during the indicated months.

The Tissue Salts

Calc Fluor assists with maintaining elasticity of tissues and is indicated for varicose veins, haemorrhoids, constipation and sluggish circulation, plus stretch marks. It is of value in conditions affecting the bones, teeth and the elastic fibres of the skin, muscular tissue and blood vessels. It may assist with and help avoid prolapse.

Ferrum Phos is the oxygen carrier of the system and assists with inflammation and oxygenation, processes vital for our system. It gives strength to the walls of the blood vessels, especially the arteries and is indicated where there is a lack of red blood cells, as in anaemia. It does not supplement iron, but helps the system use iron from the diet and balance the intake efficiently. Low iron can be a problem for many women during pregnancy and the addition of Ferrum Phos 6x can help with better assimilation of any supplements.

Mag Phos works on development of the nerves. It is also a nerve relaxant, hence its usefulness in the treatment of cramps and spasms. It is indicated for neuralgic pain, sciatica and headaches with shooting, darting, stabbing pains and can be helpful for heartburn. It is useful for period-type pain and will work more quickly and often more efficiently when taken in hot water.

Nat Mur helps balance the salt and fluids in the system, maintaining proper moisture, and can be useful for both dryness and water retention, and of course swollen ankles. It can be helpful for headaches with constipation, colds with profuse water mucous and sneezing, and often there may be great thirst – often a sign of fluid imbalance. It has a major usefulness for cold sores and can be helpful for hayfever. It often has a craving for salt and salty foods. It also has an affinity for the production of hydrochloric acid and digestion generally.

Silica is present in blood, skin, hair and nails and is a constituent of connective tissue, teeth, bones, nerve sheaths and mucous membranes. It is indicated where there is history of deficient or slow assimilation. Brittle nails and weak, falling hair and urates lodging around joints and muscles also call for this tissue salt. It may also be helpful for stretchmarks and is indicated for general strength within the system.

Zinc Mur Zinc is present in all organs and is also a component of enzymes. Zinc Mur tissue salt supports insulin production and can be helpful for nervous exhaustion, grooved nails with white spots, falling and dull hair, restless legs and crampy pain.


Kali Phos can be added to your program for its role as a nerve nutrient, which can be helpful with physical and emotional stability and energy levels. It has been said to prevent the baby going overdue.

Kali Phos is a nerve nutrient and has an affinity for the tissues and fluids of the body, in particular the brain and nerve cells. It is useful for nervous conditions such as fatigue, depression, indigestion and insomnia.

Hereditary Weakness

Pregnancy is a really good time to address some of the inherited weaknesses that tend to run in families, such as asthma, allergies, immune weakness, mental illness, cancers and so on. They can be used during pregnancy to strengthen the constitution of the mother and baby.
