Facial Signs for Kali Sulph
Look out for Yellow or Brownish Yellow
Kali Sulph shows as facial signs of a brownish, yellowish colour.
Consider this, if the body is having difficulty excreting toxins, (or getting rid of the garbage) you may see a yellowish colour to the face. For example, in the case of jaundice, the skin goes a yellowish colour. But it’s not just in that situation. There are lots of reasons why this could happen but often the body is having difficulty getting rid of toxins. When you give Kali Sulph, it helps your clients body to excrete those toxins, and come back into balance.
This yellowish ochre colour is often seen in an “A” shape between the root of the nose and the chin. If you draw an “A” from the root of the nose down to the chin. You may see it around the inner corner of the eye.
The colour seems to be darker if only the lower eyelid is affected.
The yellowish colour may also show as spots like freckles, moles and aging spots.
When we do No. 10 Sodium Sulphate, you will notice that it tends to be more of a greenish yellow colour wheras No 6. Kali sulph is yellow / brown / ochre coloured.
The tongue may have a yellowish colour. It may also be slimy.
The person may seem sad and worried.
They feel worse in closed warm rooms, and in the evening. They feel better when they can get fresh air. In my clinic, my windows are easy to access. I see all sorts of behaviours that give me clues to what remedy someone needs. I will see them look for an open window, and if there isn’t one, they may open one to get some fresh air.
Using Kali Sulph Cream
- Pimples, often with pus
- Itching skin
- Rashes with blisters
Apply a small amount of cream to the skin
For weeping abscesses, ulcers and wounds, only apply the cream to the edges of the wound. Then dab the wound or sore with a muslin cloth or face washer soaked in water with 3-4 Kali Sulph tablets dissolved in it. Do this several times a day.
2nd degree burns
After a second degree burn the skin can get weepy and break open. The cream will help it to heal. You could also use the same method with the muslin cloth above.
Can you think of another skin disease that has scales of skin peeling off? The skin may crack and burst open?
Consider Psoriasis or neurodermatitis. Symptoms may be helped by using the cream.
- Infected edges of the eyelids
Don’t get cream in the eyes, just rub it gently around the eye area.
Sinus Problems and colds
For Sinus problems, rub the cream in to the nose and nostril area. This helps to dissolve and soften hard crusts and blockages. It helps the sinuses to drain and heal.
If the ears are also blocked from sinus problems, you could rub the cream from the nose to the ears.
Chronic Liver Disease
Kali sulph helps with liver detoxification. As I said earlier, when the liver is working too hard the body cant get rid of toxins, and the skin may take on a yellowish colour.
Rub Kali Sulph cream into the right rib curve – the area underneath the last rib on the right hand side.
Rheumatic neck, back and limb pains.
Remember that Ferrum phos and Kali Sulph help to carry oxygen around the body. After a physically active day, you may find that
Exercise 1 – Creams and ordering tips.
Down load the Tissue Salts Creams Info sheet from the Tools and resources page at http://tissuesaltstraining.com/tools-and-resources/ and print off 20 copies for your clinic.
Read through the sheet, and give a copy to each client you see this week.
- Which of your clients could benefit from one of the creams you have already studied?
- Record how many clients ask for a cream, or ask you “is there a cream for…?”.
- If you don’t have it in stock. Take an order so you know how many creams you will need to order.
- If the order is prepaid, you know you can pay for your stock before it arrives.
Getting feedback from your clients helps you to feel more confident in placing orders.
