It seems that medical science is catching up with homeopathy, salt deficiency is being recognized as a factor in depression
. How many times has homeopathy been ridiculed for prescribing natrum muriaticum
as a remedy? It seems like homeopathy is having the last laugh. Here's an excerpt from the article:
UI psychologist Kim Johnson and colleagues found in their research that when rats are deficient in sodium chloride, common table salt, they shy away from activities they normally enjoy, like drinking a sugary substance or pressing a bar that stimulates a pleasant sensation in their brains. "Things that normally would be pleasurable for rats didn't elicit the same degree of relish, which leads us to believe that a salt deficit and the craving associated with it can induce one of the key symptoms associated with depression," Johnson said.
