DIURETICS

Q: I wonder if someone can give me some advice? My mom is 95 and was given a water tablet by the doctor. Because it’s a diuretic, they also give her a Potassium tablet (Ultipot K) This causes frequent bouts of diarrhea which makes her extremely weak.

I have looked at various types of potassium and they all seem to have similar side effects. I was wondering if there’s not a more natural supplement?

Lynn Soulcology: Tissue salt number 11 is called Nat Sulph known as the water eliminating tissue salt. It is thus the main remedy for water retention. It is also strongly associated with the liver and gall bladder. This tissue salt is essential for the proper digestion of sugars and starches and for the effective withdrawal of water from the cells. This tissue salt largely controls the healthy functioning of the liver; it ensures an adequate supply of free-flowing healthy bile, so necessary for the later stages of digestion. Nat Sulph ensures the disposal of toxic charged fluids and its importance in the treatment of rheumatic ailments is self-evident.
