Sodium ring is sometimes called as a ’Calcium Ring’ or a ‘salt ring.’ But ‘sodium ring’ is more popular and applicable since sodium in natural form can be the major corrections for such a problem. The presence of this problem can be observed when there is a white of sodium ring forms a dense, narrow band around the outside rim of the iris.

   When the rim covers only the outer circulation zone, no classifiable symptoms may be experienced at all. However, stiffening and hardening processes are at work in the circulation as calcium compounds or cholesterol deposit on the walls of major and minor blood vessels. As the deposits increase, it is more difficult to pump fluid through narrow, rigid pipes that cause the pump must work harder and greater effort is needed to keep the system function. This results in increase stiffness and tiredness, thus aches and pain can occur all over the body as the person moves.

   Some people show a yellow tinge over the thick white ring. It is believed that at this stage, cholesterol can also be depositing in clogged arteries and veins, thus the danger that the person is going to experience a sudden blockage of a ‘pipe’ now is higher.

   The main cause of a sodium ring is from a high intake of unnatural sodium such as cooking salt. Drinking too much, smoking and high cholesterol consumption may be considered as part of the interacting factor. Excessive aspirin consumption can also produce a small arc of sodium ring. If the arc is only on the lower iris rim, then the problem may affect the lower part of the body such as kidney function, leg, thigh and hip mobility.

Suggested Remedies

   For those with sodium ring, several remedies recommended include Cactus Grandiflorus, Echinacea, Equisetum, Kali Mur, Lobelia Inflata, Gelsemium, etc. When blood pressure is too high, one may consider Cholesterinum, Ceanothos, Rauwolfia, Glonoine, Ferrum Phos and Calcarea fluorica.

   If the patient gives adequate information, the individualisation of treatment will further confirm the general iris diagnosis, and prescription based on symptoms may proceed. Hence, for patient whose chest feels tight and constricted will suit a remedy like Cactus Grand., while those of high pressured, over-worked, ambitious executive, often alcoholic and over fed may need Nux vomica.

   The idea put forward here is that organ remedies (based on problems identified by iris diagnosis) will be a useful general guide before a correct remedy based on similimum is found. While under circumstances where a specific remedy is not possible, a homoeopathic combination could probably be a choice of a practitioner who use the iris check to identify problems related to body organs or systems.
