The “ Homeopathic” system of the Cell Salt remedies was developed by Dr.Schuessler a German doctor in the late 1880’s. He analyzed the ash residue of human cells and found 12 inorganic mineral salts. He theorized that these 12 elements are critical to balancing cellular activity and health and made 12 homeopathic remedies in low potency in order to be assimilated rapidly and easily. The remedies have been used by millions of people for over 120 years worldwide. They have proven to be helpful in balancing many conditions in the body. Many of these remedies are the most important in homeopathic practice worldwide. The strong point of using the cell salts is building up the constitutional health of a person over long period of time. They are used to rebuild the organs and tissues. The cell salts are equilibrium remedies; they are used to balance excess and deficiency. They remove excess as well as help with deficiencies. Cell salts work well with herbs and with vitamin and mineral supplements.
The cell salts are also great for people of any age. The two groups of people who benefit the most from using the cell salts are children between the ages of 0 – 3 a period when there is rapid growth in children. In children you can really build them up especially during growth. During growth periods you can use them for extended periods of time giving them daily for 1 to 2 years at a time. The elderly benefit because they are gentle, yet helps to nourish and to balance deficiency. For the elderly and children it is a way of doing homeopathy nutritionally. 6X is = to 1 part per million. 12X is one part per billion. Homeopathy raises the vital force, the cell salts rebuild. Homeopathy has a bigger range of action especially psychologically. The tissue salts have a narrower range but rebuild. In a way the cell salts are the “vitamins & minerals” of homeopathy. When a homeopathic remedy relapses, the cell salts come in and stabilizes it. You can take a Cell Salt remedy for 6 months to a year for supporting a chronic problem.
