Tissue Salts, also called cell salts or biochemic
salts, are composed of minerals which occur naturally in our bodies and
all organic matter on earth, such as plants, rocks and soil.
Dr Scheussler, a prominent 19th Century German doctor,
conducted research which demonstrated that, when reduced to ashes, each human
cell contains 12 minerals or biochemic tissue salts and that these minerals
should be present in all living cells in perfect balance to ensure good
Imbalance, or a deficiency of any of the tissue
salts, causes disease and the body begins to develop symptoms associated
with the tissue salts that are lacking.Are tissue salts supplements or medicine?
Restoring the correct balance of tissue salts in
the body will therefore remove the symptoms and restore health and vitality.
This system of medicine is called Biochemistry and is
still practiced today by homeopaths and naturopaths all over the world.
A little of both in a way! Tissue salts can be described
as 'Nutroceuticals' - nutritional substances which are used to maintainoptimal
health and functioning and also to restore balance and relieve symptoms of
Tissue Salts can therefore be taken regularly to prevent
illness and improve functioning (just like vitamins), but can also
be used to treat symptoms when this is necessary (as one would
do with medicines).
The only difference is that they are taken more
frequently to treat symptoms and less frequently as a preventative and a
As an example, certain tissue salts can be taken
three times a day to promote digestive health. However, if symptoms like
indigestion, gas, nausea or bloating occur, the frequency can be increased
If tissue salts are also nutritional, can I get them
from a healthy diet?
Yes, in theory you can - and that is how it is
supposed to be! Since the 12 different tissue salts are present in all
organic matter, our bodies obtain tissue salts from the food that we
eat and the water that we drink.
A healthy diet should be able to provide all the tissue
salts that our bodies need. Unfortunately, due to modern farming methods, the
food that is available to us is often deficient in the minerals and
vitamins that are essential for health - even if we follow a healthy
Added to this is the fact that many people rely on fast
food or pre-packed processed meals due to time constraints and a
Over time, this can lead to symptoms of poor health
or even disease. This means that the majority of people in Western countries
are deficient in essential vitamins and other nutritional substances,
and need to take supplements on a daily basis.
Are tissue salts safe?
Even some vitamins taken in excess can do harm! Not so
with Tissue Salts.
Due to a unique and specialized manufacturing process, our
tissue salts are present in a highly absorbable form and only minute amounts
are therefore present in each tablet.
This means that tissue salts are extremely safe and
free of side effects.
It is impossible to overdose with tissue salts and they
may be safely be taken by people of all ages, as well as infants and women
who are pregnant or nursing.
How can herbal and homeopathic
medicines help asthma?
Herbal and homeopathic treatment of asthma and other
respiratory conditions can be extremely effective.
Depending on the severity of the asthma, naturopathic
asthma relief will be gained by reducing or eliminating the need for the synthetic
drugs and inhalers and can also be safely used to complement conventional
treatment of asthma.
Used as part of a wider, holistic lifestyle management,
herbal and homeopathic medicines can bring significant relief to sufferers of
asthma - without the side effects or other complications of the conventional
