Sarea în bucate

Remediul homeopat Natrum Muriaticum este făcut din Natrum Muriaticum – adică sare de bucătărie, desigur potențată.
A. Cambell povestește cum sarea producea uneori simptome foarte puternice în medicii care o testau prin încercări (en. provings) – o dovadă a puterii minții asupra corpului, la urma urmei:
„It is very difficult to understand how taking common salt or charcoal could produce genuine symptoms, yet these and similar apparently inert substances were extensively proved by the early homeopaths. According to Hahneman they would not have had any effect in their crude form but must first be activated by dynamisation. Even homeopaths were sometimes sceptical about this, which makes their eventual conversion through personal experience all the more interesting. A good example is provided by the Austrian provings of common salt.
Some provers were in fact insensitive to salt. Others had well-marked symptoms and there are pages and pages about them. One of the most interesting reports is that of Dr Watzke, who on 2 March 1843 began to take salt in various doses. At first nothing much seemed to happen, but then he began to suffer pains in his joints of such severity that he could hardly walk. The symptoms continued until the end of May” (A. Campbell, Homeopathy in Perspective).
Între timp homeopatia a avansat, astfel încât acum putem înțelege mult mai bine cum sarea (hiperdiluată în remediul Nat Mur) acționează asupra corpului și sufletului. De exemplu, descrierea lui David Lilley este foarte convingătoare. Doar trei paragrafe aici:
Behind the rather grand name of Natrum muriaticum, hides sodium chloride or common salt. Common it may be, but it provides the homeopathic materia medica with a remedy of profound importance in the treatment of emotional suffering: the pangs and hurts of life, which are most often hidden from others.
(…) The relationship between Nat mur, common salt, and the ocean is immediately apparent; to a child they are as one. (…) Unlike Mother Nature the ocean is an aloof, impersonal and often harsh mother. She does not cosset or spoil her children; she stands back and leaves them to fend for themselves. She appears distant, cold and unfeeling and applies discipline with uncompromising strictness and severity. To spare the rod is to spoil the child. It is often the lot of the Nat mur child to be born into a family in which these qualities are valued and applied; in which emotions are not expressed, sympathy and love are not demonstrated, and a stiff upper lip is expected. The child is encouraged to achieve independence without the sheltering warmth of maternal nurturing. There is a lack of mothering. Paradoxically, this mother whose maternal instincts are so repressed, is often herself manifesting a Mother Ocean archetype – Nat mur or Sepia.
(..) Salt preserves and it retains – not only fluids, but also old emotions, and unfortunately hoards them like a miser hoards his gold (and Aurum is so similar). Like salt to the palate, Nat mur given to a salt patient restores their appetite and taste for life, and aids the digestion of life’s tribulations.
