Cells salts & Biochemic Medicine

Cells salts & Biochemic Medicine

 

The use of cell salts is rooted in the cell theory of Virchow who discovered the body is really a collection of cells and therefore medical treatment should be directed towards the individual cells of the body.

Scheussler elaborated on Virchow’s work, he discovered that the body breaks down into 12 basic mineral cells salts.  Combining his knowledge of the mineral salts with his knowledge of human cellular structure Scheussler discovered and implemented a system of medical treatment to preserve human health by providing treatment at a cellular level; this system is called Biochemical Medicine and is acknowledged worldwide.

Basically Cell salts provide the nutritional elements of the cell.  This inorganic matter is very important even though there is more water and organic matter in cells.  Biochemical functions of the body need these minerals so that cells can function properly and reproduce.  If certain minerals are lacking the body chemistry will be out of balance and the person will be much more susceptible to illness and disease.

Cell salts are also called mineral salts or tissue salts and they are prepared and sold in precise low dose remedies that have a powerful effect on the body.  They are in an easy to digest ionic form; when they are dissolved under the tongue or even swallowed with water the active ingredients become readily accessible to the cell.  Your body will continue to take the nutrients it needs from the mineral cell salts; but you can’t overdose because if the body has too much of one mineral it will simply get rid of it.  The body doesn’t even have to use up extra energy to get rid of the excess amounts of tissue salts.

Each of the 12 cells salts are available in different strengths, typically the larger the number the more potent the remedy is.  The most common strengths that people buy are between 6x and 30 x and these are readily available for purchase. If you require a higher number dosage it is usually is prescribed by your health care provider or homeopathic practitioner.
