Dr. Schuessler (1821-1898)
In his investigations Dr. Schuessler discovered that 12 vital mineral materials must be present for perfect functioning within the body. A lack or poor mineral distribution in body tissue leads inevitably to malfunctions, which are again a cause for diseases. Dr. Schuesser was one of the main pioneers of biochemistry and was the force behind the development and elaboration of the importance of the twelve tissue salts and their therapeutic uses. According to biochemic therapeutics, abnormal health conditions in the body are a result of a lack of some inorganic cellular salt. Health and energy can be maintained as long as the cellular tissue salts in the body are maintained.
What are Schuessler Tissue Salts?
Tissue salts are homoeopathic prepared mineral combinations. Food minerals are taken up by the organism and serve as building materials and form the mineral basis for the body and the metabolic processes. The mineral materials of the Dr. Schuessler´s cell salts can be thought of as “functional modulators” of cells. They work by adjusting and supporting the building materials within cells to improve biological functioning. Minerals in the body have a wide variety of uses in cells as they support tissue structure and function. When groups of cells or tissues do not function properly the body moves towards a state of ill health.
Schuessler tissue salts absorb very fast in the body due to the fact that the mineral materials can be taken in the blood better when absorbed through the mouth mucous membrane. They are therefore more readily available to the body since they by-pass the digestive system.
Tissue Salts Action
- Act mainly at the cellular level and work rapidly to alleviate a wide variety of symptoms.
- Act synergistically and offer maximum efficacy with other naturopathic therapies such as nutrition, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage and detoxification.
- Each tissue salt has been chosen for its affinity to and direct upon the specific disease and to act on specific tissues of the body.
The clinic dispensary has a full range of Schuessler Tissue Salts as well as the facilities to compound a variety of salts together which are specific for your case.
