Schuessler Salts: Pregnancy

Supporters of the Schuessler salts promise gentle help in many life situations. Pregnancy should also be part of it: Schuessler salts such as potassium phosphoricum, calcium phosphoricum and silica are said to have a soothing effect on morning sickness, calf cramps, stretch marks and the like. Find out here which other Schuessler salts should be helpful during pregnancy.

Schuessler salts: gently support pregnancy

Pregnancy is a major challenge for a woman’s body: the hormonal changes, the supply of nutrients and oxygen for the unborn child and the stresses associated with the increasing space requirements and weight of the child. Various symptoms can therefore accompany pregnancy: morning sickness, morning sickness or fatigue.

Many women try to use alternative methods to combat such complaints. Various Schuessler salts should offer gentle support during pregnancy. Women should discuss the exact dosage with an experienced doctor or naturopath.

Schuessler salts: Pregnancy with nausea and vomiting

Especially in the early stages of pregnancy, many women suffer from nausea, especially in the morning. The reason is the changes in the hormonal balance. The Schuessler salt no. 5 potassium phosphoricum should help against morning sickness. It is also recommended for vomiting during pregnancy – in addition to other Schuessler salts such as No. 2 Calcium phosphoricum (for strengthening), No. 3 Ferrum phosphoricum (for oxygen supply) and No. 8 Sodium chloratum (to regulate gastric juices and water balance).

Schuessler salts: Pregnancy with food cravings

Many women report regular food cravings during pregnancy. No. 7 Magnesium phosphoricum is said to alleviate the craving for chocolate or sweets, either as a “hot seven” (in the potency 6X) or by sucking individual tablets (in the potency 3X). In the case of a strong desire for salty foods, No. 8 sodium chloratum D6 is recommended (as “hot eight”), with a craving for sour things, No. 2 calcium phosphoricum D6 (as “hot two”).

Schuessler salts: Pregnancy with weak connective tissue

Anyone who tends to have weak connective tissue can try the following Schuessler salt combination:

  • #1 Calcium fluoratum
  • No. 5 Potassium phosphoricum
  • No. 8 sodium chloratum
  • No. 11 Silicea

This combination of minerals is said to be particularly helpful when used as a cream gel. The same applies to the combination of Schuessler salts, which is recommended for existing stretch marks: the four salts mentioned above plus No. 9 sodium phosphoricum are used.

Schuessler salts: Pregnancy with back pain

In the last trimester of pregnancy, the increasing weight of the abdomen often leads to back pain. For example, a back cure lasting several weeks with the following Schuessler salts should have a soothing effect:

  • No. 1 Calcium fluoratum D12
  • No. 3 Ferrum phosphoricum D12
  • No. 7 Magnesium phosphoricum D6
  • No. 8 sodium chloratum D6

Schuessler salts: Pregnancy with other complaints

Many pregnant women develop pregnancy spots – brown to brown-grey, symmetrical spots on the face (forehead, temples, etc.) caused by an increased production of the pigment melanin. Potassium sulfuricum and sodium sulfuricum, the No. 6 and No. 10 of the Schuessler salts, are said to help against this.

Pregnancy in the last trimester can be accompanied by calf cramps due to circulatory disorders or a lack of minerals (such as magnesium) or vitamin B. Calf cramps are treated with No. 2 Calcium phosphoricum.

Calcium fluoratum No. 1 is said to have proven effective in preventing varicose veins during pregnancy. However, since it only develops its effect slowly, it is recommended to take it over a longer period of time.

When the unborn child kicks its stomach excessively vigorously, No. 11 Silicea is often given.

For dental problems, naturopaths often recommend Calcium phosphoricum, the No. 2 of the Schuessler salts. Pregnancy promotes gingivitis and tooth decay.
