What Are Biochemic cell Salts?
Biochemic cell salts or tissue salts are homeopathic 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.
Therapeutic Action of Cell Salts
1. Act mainly at the cellular level and work rapidly to alleviate a wide variety of symptoms.
2. Act synergistically and offer maximum efficacy with other naturopathic therapies such as nutrition, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage and detoxification.
3. 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 Biochemic Theory
Dr. Schuessler discovered that 12 vital mineral materials must be present for optimal functioning within the body. A lack of mineral distribution in the body leads inevitably to imbalance, which are a cause for disease. According to biochemic theory, poor health conditions in the body are a result of a lack of certain tissue salt(s). Tissue salts help to bring to balance the deficiencies in the body allowing for health to be supported and restored.
What is a Facial Analysis?
Dr.Schuessler discovered that the lack of minerals can be seen on the face and body signs. Facial signs are linked to disturbances and ailments in the body due to a lack of the minerals found within cell salts. Through facial analysis the mineral imbalances and deficiencies will be diagnosed and individual treatment plan will be provided.
