Tissue salts

Tissue salts, also known as homeopathic cell salts, are homeopathic salts that have been organically prepared on the basis of the 12 organic salts that are found in our body naturally.   They are essential for our overall well-being.

Cell salt remedies were developed in the late 1880’s, by German physician, Dr. Willhelm Schuessler. He analyzed the residue of human cells and discovered 12 inorganic mineral salts. He noted the 12 salt elements were critical to health and balanced cellular activity, and developed 12 homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathic practitioners prepare tissue salts in a maltose or lactose base that dissolves quickly in the mouth.These salts are safe, even if digested in larger than prescribed quantities.

In brief, the 12 tissue salts are:

  • Nat Mur (Sodium Chloride), or commonly known as table salt - used when there are watery symptoms: runny nose, watery eyes, over-urinating.
  • Nat Phos (Sodium Phosphate - used when there are yellow excretions in the eye or nose, also a remedy for sour stomach and other acidic conditions.
  • Nat Sulph (Sodium Sulphate) - symptoms that are worse in the morning, no matter what they are.
  • Kali Mur (Potassium Chloride) - white secretions like pimples, and clear, slimy secretions.  These symptoms are made worse from too much rich and fatty food.
  • Kali Phos (Potassium Phosphate) - this is the remedy for nerve and pain issues.
  • Kali Sulph (Potassium Sulphate) - for all symptoms that are worse in the evening. It is also great for yellow skin secretions.
  • Calc Phos (Calcium Phosphate) - we have 57% of Calc Phos in our bones.  It is great for growing pains and teeth.
  • Calc Fluor (Calcium Fluoride) - this remedy is for our connective tissue - strained backs, hemorrhoids, varicose veins.  It is also part of our teeth enamel.
  • Calc Sulph (Calcium Sulphate) - this plus Kali Sulph makes a great skin remedy.
  • Ferrum Phos (Iron Phosphate) - remedy for inflammation, anything that gets red, like sore throats, fevers.  It also builds the blood.
  • Mag Phos (Magnesium Phosphate) - great for cramps, convulsions, spasms.  Can be taken with Kali Phos (nerves/pain).
  • Silicea (Silica) - remedy found in hair, skin and nails and covering of bones and nerves.  Great skin remedy for pimples or boils.

Tissue salts are suitable for all ages, including infants and pregnant women. They absorb rapidly and are pleasant tasting. They are also safe to take with prescription medicines.  They are available in single minerals, combinations and creams
