When I began to select the natural health remedies to build my family’s medicine cabinet, the set of 12 cell salts were high on my list.
One hundred years ago, W. H. Schuessler, a medical doctor, chemist, and physicist who was well ahead of his time, discovered that the human body contained only 12 minerals in the form of cell salts (or tissue salts) and that they are vital components required inside every cell of our body. Without them you couldn’t stand up straight, digest food, think, bend at your joints, or eliminate toxins. Many health problems experienced today are because of the lack of particular minerals.
Today, these homeopathically-prepared cell salts have spread to most parts of the world where people rely on them for a wide range of problems without the harmful side-effects of pharma drugs.
Schuessler’s cell salts are potentised micro-doses of the 12 essential minerals your body needs to repair and maintain itself. They are prepared in homeopathic 6X potencies that are gentle enough to be used by the youngest to the eldest member of your family.
They can even be used 1 or 2 a day in your pet’s water bowl.
Chemistry Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling agreed that every disease can be traced back to a mineral deficiency.
“Well-nourished cells are impervious to attack, for they optimally assimilate all nutrients and optimally excrete all wastes” ~Dr. Steven Byrnes
How are cell salts Beneficial?
Cell salts are in ionic form, thus very digestible. In this form, by putting the cell salts pellets under your tongue, it bypasses acid in the stomach and goes directly into your bloodstream. The cells recognize this form as useable and immediately receive it into the cellular membrane. Once enough of the cell salts have been accepted and that need is balanced, an intake of more cell salts are simply excreted in the urine.
The stresses on the human body today are such that we are continually being undermined. This is not like an herb, drug or nutritional supplement where the body has to expend energy to rid the body of the excess.
There are 6 cell salt categories: (see specifics of all 12 individual salts below)
- Calcium (3 forms) for bone health, prolapse conditions, hard knots, and digestion (assimilation)
- Iron inflammation, iron deficiency, hemochromatosis (iron buildup in the blood), and strength for veins and arteries, inflammation
- Potassium (3 forms) for depression, anxiety, nervousness, lung health, mucus problems, nerve health, and skin problems
- Magnesium for all types of pain (especially neuralgia), muscle spasms, and heart health
- Sodium (3 forms) for digestive power, body water balance (edema or swelling), dry skin, and high body acidity
- Silica for bones, hair loss, skin and fingernail problems, and skin eruptions (my note: after 20 years, silica -twice a day- repaired my split fingernail in 3 weeks)
Cell salts are very inexpensive. Hyland’s brand cell salts are available at most health-food stores. This is the best value on Amazon, with each 500 tablets in each bottle for less than $5. There is no expiration.
The 12 Cell Salts Simplified
In the few minutes it takes to read through these brief explanations and consult the cell salt chart (below), you can gain sufficient familiarity with these following formulations to address specific conditions:
Cell salts come in the following formulations to address specific conditions:
#2 Calc Phos (Calcium Phosphate): Used for teething, fatigue, strengthening broken bones, osteoporosis, sore throat, feeling overwhelmed and irritable. This salt will help children going through growth spurts as well as people who are feeling low energy and exhausted.
#3 Calc Sulph (Calcium Sulfate): Use for colds, eczema, and rashes, sore throats, acne, liver support, cradle cap, and abscesses.
#4 Ferr Phos (Ferrous Phosphate): Use first for any of your first aid needs, inflammation, colds, low fevers, swelling, sinus pressure, circulation, anemia, and nosebleeds. For cuts and grazes, you can dissolve the tablets in a little water and apply directly to the wound to speed healing.
#5 Kali Mur (Potassium Chloride): Use for colds, sore throats, runny nose, burns, sinusitis, ear infections, dandruff, anxiety, and confusion.
#6 Kali Phos (Potassium Phosphate): Use for depression, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, low energy, and to improve memory and attention.
#7 Kali Sulph (Potassium Sulphate): Use for fatigue, discharge-related symptoms, colds, constipation, detoxing, hot flashes, stiff joints, and psoriasis.
#8 Mag Phos (Magnesium Phosphate): Use for headaches, leg and menstrual cramps, anti-spasmodic (muscle relaxer), twitches, hiccups, and carpal tunnel.
#9 Nat Mur (Sodium Chloride): Use for high blood pressure, water retention, hay fever, puffy eyes, dry skin, cold sores, hives, heartburn, pre-menstrual syndrome, and menopause symptoms. This salt is also the one remedy for grief.
#10 Nat Phos (Sodium Phosphate): Use for gout and joint pain, cystitis, detoxing, kidney problems, acid reflux, gas, skin conditions, worms, food allergies, indigestion, and acidity.
#11 Nat Sulf (Sodium Sulfate): Use for colds and flus, asthma relief, nausea, thrush, liver support, depression, fear, and gloominess.
#12 Silicea (Silica): Use for skin, brittle hair and nails, frailty, weakness, lack of self-confidence, and inability to make decisions.
As well as the individual salts above, there is a combination of all 12 cell salts called Bioplasma. In just one Bioplasma tablet, you get all the benefits to provide gentle rebalancing support to your cells.
For those struggling after covid or the “V” assault, I believe Bioplasma would be broad-spectrum assistance for core health and to lower inflammation.
Simply take 2-3 tablets, 2 times daily (more frequently the more acute the need). Tap the right amount of tiny tablets into the cap and drop them into your mouth. They dissolve instantly and taste good. Even children like the taste. Alternately, many put 2-3 tablets into a water bottle, shake, and sip all day.
I do recommend the book (pictured at top) as a reference guide so you can grow in understanding: Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies: Healing with Nature’s Twelve Mineral Compounds.
