Schuessler Salt No. 4: Potassium chloratum

Schuessler Salt No. 4 potassium chloratum (potassium chloride) is used when there is a cough, swelling or skin problems such as spider veins. According to the teachings of Dr. Schuessler for the health of the glands, bronchi, blood and connective tissue. 

What is Schuessler salt no. 4: potassium chloratum?

According to the teachings the fuel of the glands, an important substance for detoxification and also involved in the build-up of fibers.

Schuessler Salt No. 4 is recommended as the drug of choice in the second stage of the disease (in the first stage, No. 3 Ferrum phosphoricum is given). Taking the potassium chloratum-based salt is intended to prevent the disease from taking hold in the body.

According to Schuessler, potassium chloratum should bind fibers in the body that thicken the surrounding environment. Glands, mucous membranes and blood should remain functional and healthy. The Schuessler salt No. 4 potassium chloride counteracts mucus formation and viscous blood.

In addition, potassium chloratum is said to have the ability to bind chemical toxins and thus have a detoxifying effect.

Particular stress on the glands (e.g. due to alcohol, dairy products or electrosmog) is said to remove a lot of potassium chlorate from the entire body. As a result, a lot of fibers should fall out as waste (recognisable, for example, by a mucous cough).

Storage locations for potassium chloratum

If the minerals in the body parts are coming to an end, the organism falls back on the long-term storage of potassium chloratum. This should be primarily the bronchi, followed by the mucous membranes and glands.

Symptoms and diseases of potassium chloratum deficiency

If potassium chloride is missing, according to Dr. Schuessler fibrous materials into their surrounding milieu. In the case of the bronchi, this means mucus build-up in the lungs and therefore a mucous cough. Swelling can occur within the tissues if there is a lack of potassium chloratum. If the blood vessels are affected, the blood should thicken and result in spider veins or reddening of the skin. If, for example, skin glands lack potassium chloride, skin grit or pimples should appear.

Overall, the following symptoms should be possible with a lack of potassium chloratum:

  • mucous cough, bronchitis, thick saliva, white coating on the tongue
  • Inflammation (such as the gastrointestinal mucosa, conjunctiva, bursa, joints)
  • Spider veins, couperose, whitehead
  • soft swellings, problems with connective tissue
  • gland swelling
  • deafness
  • tendency to be overweight
  • Immune deficiency, allergies

Application of potassium chloratum

Potassium chloratum is used internally in the form of tablets and/or externally as an ointment, depending on the symptoms.

Internal use of potassium chloratum

Potassium chloratum D6 is usually recommended. The therapist determines the daily number of tablets to be taken based on the diagnosis of the face. According to the Chinese organ clock, the best effect seems to be achieved if potassium cloratum D6 is taken in the afternoon.

External use of potassium chloratum

Applied thinly three times a day, the potassium chloratum ointment supports, for example, the improvement of inflammation in the joints. An application should also be helpful for different skin changes. This Schuessler ointment seems to be able to help against warts and facial redness. Envelopes, wraps and inhalations are other possible uses.

Potassium chloride is also a common ingredient in cough ointments to help treat coughs.

Typical causes of potassium chloratum deficiency

Different compulsive structures are, the causes of mineral deficiencies. If the content of potassium chloratum is too low, the reason can be found in feelings that are felt and lived too intensely – your own feelings or those of others. Those who cling too much to such feelings and find it difficult to emotionally distance themselves from someone else’s situation tend to consume too much potassium chloratum. The same applies if you suppress feelings because of social or moral requirements.

In order to be able to keep the potassium chloride content at a normal level, it seems important to discover, acknowledge and live out your own emotional world. At the same time, it is important to distance oneself from the feelings and unwritten expectations of others. This helps to manage the supply of potassium chloratum.

Signs of deficiency on the face

Experienced therapists can already recognize possible deficiencies in Schuessler Salt No. 4 based on certain signs on the face:

  • milky-reddish or milky-bluish face
  • milky discoloration around the eyes
  • Hautgrieß
  • blushing cheeks (couperose)

Other important information about potassium chloratum

Potassium chloratum D6 always helps when the Schuessler salt no. 3, Ferrum phosphoricum, no longer provides sufficient support (e.g. in the case of joint inflammation or skin burns).

Whitish deposits on the mucous membranes, for example in infectious diseases, dissolve after using potassium chloratum.

If the symptoms worsen after taking potassium chloratum , this indicates a rapid reaction from the mineral.
