Cell Salts are minerals that act as building blocks for maintain healthy cells. In the 19th century it was William Schuessler who began treating health problems with Cell Salts. His entire practice is referred to as biochemics or Biochemic Medicine, and the goal was to create balance in the body; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The beauty of treating with cell salts is its simplicity, and with a low potency they can be administered to treat chronic illness, and used multiple times a day.
Schuessler’s system is comprised of 12 Cell Salts. A simple, comprehensive repertoire to treat any ailment. He concluded that these organic minerals can stimulate cells to digest nutrients better. Allopathy medicine considers all individuals alike. Meaning if one treatment worked for some then it can work for all. That is not the theory behind homeopathy, where everyone is treated as a a unique individual.
For optimal health, cells require these minerals. Like all homeopathic remedies Cell Salts are prepared by dillution and succussion. Succussion is a term used to describe vigorous shaking, which increases the potency.
