TISSUE SALTS (Schuessler Biochemical Cell Salts)

Schuessler salts, also called tissue salts, biochemical salts and Cell salts, are a wonderful and inexpensive form of improving health.

I discovered them in 2011 and my family and I have been using some of them ever since, with excellent benefits.

They are the result of the work of Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler, a great nineteenth-century German physician. He did research in the ashes of people who had been cremated, to see what minerals were lacking in their cells and studied the entire history of these people, linking the missing minerals to the diseases they had. He concluded that there are 12 minerals that must be present in the body to perfect health.

100% Natural Ingredients, safe for children over age one and adults and can be taken with other medications and on an on-going basis without side effects. In case of serious illnesses, contact a health professional.

1 – CALC FLUOR – Calcarea Fluorica – (Calcium fluoratum)

Calcarea fluoric is the Tissue elasticity restorer.

Cracks in the skin, loss of elasticity, relaxed condition of the veins and arteries, piles, sluggish circulation, loose/decayed teeth.  Calcium Fluoride helps maintain tissue elasticity and is beneficial for conditions associated with over-relaxed fibres. This would include dilated blood vessels such as with haemorrhoids, enlarged and varicose veins.

Calcium Fluoride is also found in the enamel of teeth and bone surfaces. Assists normal blood circulation and the treatment of sagging, muscle strain and injured ligaments.   It helps strengthen the blood vessels, bones and teeth. Calc Fluor provides support for cataracts, bone diseases of the ear, cracked lips, relaxation of  urinary organs muscles, uterine displacement, difficult expectoration, burning back pains, hangnails (for hangnails also see Silicea).

Fan-shaped crow’s feet, brittle nails, sweaty feet, weak connective tissue.

4 – FERRUM  PHOS (ferrum phosphoricum,Phosphate of iron)

Ferrum phos also known as phosphate of iron or ferrum phosphate is essential for the transport of oxygen to all parts of the body.

The lack of this mineral is related to congestion, inflammatory pain, high temperature (fever), quickened pulse, and lack of red blood corpuscles. As the “Oxygen Carrier”, Phosphate of Iron is beneficial for any inflammatory or feverish condition. Whenever there are ailments arising from disturbed circulation – heat, pains, redness, throbbing.
