An Introduction To Homeopathic Cell Salts

In the late 19th century, Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler discovered a key principle to healing with the use of homeopathic tissue cell salts while researching in Germany.

At the time, there were an overwhelming amount of homeopathic remedies used to treat illnesses and Schuessler set out to simplify this for the masses.

He found that in the ash of human cells, 12 essential inorganic minerals remained leading to his study of the 12 basic tissue cell salts (Calc Flor, Calc Phos, Calc Sulph, Ferrum Phos, Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Kali Sulph, Mag Phos, Nat Mur, Nat Phos, Nat Sulph, and Silica).

He concluded that if a mineral imbalance existed, the cells could not function properly and would therein cause diseases in the body.

Schuessler also noted that the cells could not absorb or make use of concentrated minerals so he decided to dilute them into low potency homeopathic cell salts.

The highly diluted minerals could be ingested and assimilated by the cells much quicker and more effectively than their concentrated form.

It is important to note that the tissue cell salts are not used based on deficiencies, but rather as a way to balance the minerals in the cells.

For example, regardless of whether a patient has too much or too little calcium, he/she will be prescribed a calcium-based cell salt that works in accordance with the Law of Similars (like cures like).

Lower potency cell salts are prescribed as daily tonics and work well to stimulate and build up the blood, tissues, bones, and organs over a longer period of time.

Additionally, the low potency salts do not necessarily need to fit a specific set of criteria to work effectively.

Low potency doses can be used for acute injuries and illnesses as well by being taken more frequently as needed throughout the day.

It’s important to understand that there is a special connection between the cell salts and astrology because the 12 salts correspond to the 12 zodiac signs—“As above, so below.”
