Micronutrient Mineral Therapy

Micronutrient Mineral Therapy

“Tissue salts – also called cell salts or biochemic salts – are minerals, the same minerals that are found in the earth’s rocks and soil. These minerals should be present in our bodies in a perfect balance, which is the prerequisite for complete health and well-being.

Dr. Schuessler (1828-1898), an eminent 19th century German physician, discovered upon analysis, that when the human cell is reduced to ashes, it exhibits 12 minerals. He named this system biochemistry (the chemistry of life) from the Greek word bios meaning ‘the course of life’ and chemistry which means the knowledge of the elements and the laws governing their combination and behaviour.

The minerals in tissue salts are present in our food, or should be, when grown organically in mineral-rich soils. But, in modern-day agricultural practices, soils are leached of their life-sustaining minerals and boosted instead with chemical fertilisers and fumigants.”  (from Tissue Salts for Healthy Living by Margaret Roberts)

Many conditions are due to mineral deficiencies.   This range of twelve of the most common mineral salts found in the human body are critical for health maintenance (i.e.  iron (Ferrum Phos pictured above), potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, silica …).  In addition to the original 12 Tissue Salts there are also Zinc, Selenium and other minerals that can be offered in the same tissue salt form enabling optimum cellular uptake.  The tissue salts replace deficient minerals by fast assimilationinto the cell.   These remedies correct imbalances or deficiencies in the body’s cell nutrition, helping the body to restore itself to health.  These can be used alongside any medications or therapies and work quicker than most ‘high dose’ supplements.  There is a combination of all 12 of the tissue salts (BC-28 pictured above) that is often given as a general minerals micronutrient and is also very useful for people convalescing.

Excellent for babies and those not keen on herbs or laboratory manufactured minerals. They are totally safe and non-toxic.

Pregnancy Tissue Salts Programme– During pregnancy, the baby requires certain minerals at various stages of its development.  The baby will get these minerals at the expense of the mother if need be – i.e. if she is low the baby will deplete her to get its needs met. This program will help to replenish any mineral deficiencies in the mother so that her health does not suffer during the pregnancy as well as after the birth.  The tissue salts are completely safe to use during pregnancy.

Examples –

  • Calc fluor– for elasticity of connective tissue, helping to prevent stretch marks, makes ligaments more supple and ensures stronger teeth for mother and baby. For impaired circulation, varicose veins and piles.
  • Mag phos– for nerve and muscle development, therefore reducing the chance of heartburn and cramps.Anti-spasmodic, taken to prevent cramping of muscles in legs and feet, soothes an irritable womb and relieves some headaches in pregnancy, optimises magnesium levels and helps prevent colic in babies after birth.
  • Ferrum phos– for blood oxygenation, hence reducing the tendency to anaemia. Improves iron absorption from food and supplements. Also anti- inflammatory properties, helping prevent infections in pregnancy and counteracting sore, swollen, inflamed joints. Improves tissue strength, making aches and pains less likely in pregnancy.

The Tissue Salts may be offered as a stand alone therapy or given in conjunction with other therapies offered by the practitioners associated here.
