What are tissue salts?
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 health.
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.
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.
Are tissue salts supplements or medicine?
A little of both in a way! Tissue salts can be described as 'Nutroceuticals' - nutritional substances which are used to maintain optimal health and functioning and also to restore balance and relieve symptoms of disease.
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 health aid.
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 too.
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 diet.
Added to this is the fact that many people rely on fast food or pre-packed processed meals due to time constraints and a stressful lifestyle.
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.
