Nat-Sulph #11 eliminates excess water. It functions as a stimulant for natural secretions. It is good for liver and gall bladder disorders, edema (swelling), and digestive problems. A German homeopathic physician, Dr. Schussler, identified 12 cell salts (mineral salts) that were all that was needed to maintain the body in perfect health and balance. A lack of a specific cell salt would result in a deficiency that would eventually lead to a symptom and possibly disease. By replacing the deficient cell salt, the balance was restored and healing took place.
