Early Development
Dr W. H. Schuessler of Oldenburgh, Germany was a follower of Virchow who in 1858 announced his "cell theory" in which he stated that the human body was composed of a series of cells from which it followed that as a consequence medical treatment against illness should be directed towards healing the individual cell. Schuessler applied an analytical approach to Virchow's cell theory and spent much time analysing blood as well as the ashes obtained from dead people. As a result of this investigative work he was able to establish the twelve mineral compounds which made up the bulk of each cell. By 1873 he was calling these mineral compounds "Cell salts" or "Tissue Salts".

Schuessler's next investigation was to relate the various symptoms of illness displayed by his patients to known call salt deficiencies. He discovered that when the deficient mineral was supplied to his patients the illness disappeared and the body automatically corrected itself. In other words application of the correct cell salt automatically cured an ill patient. This was the beginning of Dr Schessleras biochemic system of medicine.

The body provides an accurate indication of balance by functioning in perfect harmony and being healthy and symptom free. If each cell does not receive its proper nourishment or if the cell cannot rid itself of toxic waste a disease process begins.

The success of the Biochemical Cell salt theory lies in accurately linking a person's symptoms with the appropriate Tissue/Cell Salt. Symptoms occur in a variety of forms and are a guide to the nature of the body's deficiency and to the correct treatment required. How and where they occur helps to determine the correct tissue salt. 

Finally for optimum results Dr Schuessler applied his findings through the medium of Homeopathy. This was because it was observed that when inorganic mineral salts were ingested directly into the metabolic system they were found to pass through undigested the process of mineral assimilation and digestion failing to liberate the inorganic substance. Homeopathy however ensured that the mineral cell salt was presented in a form that optimised its transportation and assimilation into the body. When the Homeopathic cell salt tablet is place sublingually (under the tongue) it is absorbed directly into the blood stream through the process of osmosis thus by-passing the inefficiencies of the metabolic process.

Because the mineral salts work inside the cells (intra-cellularly), they are called "cell salts" or "tissue salts". Schuessler also coined the term "Biochemic" to describe the method whereby the chemistry of an inorganic mineral (Cell Salt) in Homeopathic form is used to balance a deficiency within the cells of the human body with the express objective of correcting the imbalance and restoring health.

Summary of Schuessler's
Biochemic Cell Salt Method


1. The human body contains 12 vital inorganic substances (or Cell or Tissue salts) that are responsible for the maintenance of normal cell function.

2. When from some cause one or more of these Cell Salts become deficient the normal cell function or metabolism is disturbed and a condition arises known as disease.

3. By supplying a body which exhibits symptoms of Cell Salt deficiency with the deficient Cell Salt in the form of Biochemic remedies the imbalance is corrected and normal cell function and health resume.

Schuessler introduced his 12 inorganic salts as embracing all the essential nutrients known to medicine and chemistry at the time. He presented them as necessary for proper growth and development of every part of the body. For ease of identification he designated a number from 1 to 12 to each salt.

Why are Cell Salts Essential?

Because mineral Cell salts are the foundation from which all other metabolic activity proceeds. Cell Salts are necessary for vitamins and enzyme production and activity in the body and serve as catalysts in energy cycles and other functions including water balance, digestion, removing toxins, cell elasticity, oxygenation, nutrition, sodium/potassium balance etc. The body thus has a prime requirement for Cell Salts without which metabolic activity of any description would not be possible.

How do Cell Salts Work?

The easiest way to describe the function of Cell salts is by reference to the principle of magnetism. Most people remember the first principle which states that like poles repel whilst unlike poles attract. However most people forget the second principle which sates that a weak pole is attracted to its similar strong pole (ie similar poles are attracted if one is weak whilst the other is strong).

Homeopathic cures are based on the Law of Similars. Thus a Homeopathic remedy with a similar vibrational frequency to that of an illness will oppose the illness and restore health (ie like poles repel) always provided the two vibrations are of similar strength. On the other hand a strong Homeopathic vibration when confronting a similar but weak vibration (such as that produced by a deficiency symptom) will attract or rejunvenate the weak deficiency vibration thus correcting the imbalance.

Cell salts are low potency Homeopathics (6X) and consequently have strong vibrations. These strong Homeopathic vibrations will, when confronting the similar but weak vibration of a deficient mineral, rebalance or augment the vibrations of the deficient mineral thereby restoring tone and balance (ie similar poles are attracted if one is weak whilst the other is strong).

Cell salt therapy may thus be regarded as a stimulation therapy. One expects the effect of cell salts to be such as to encourage deficient body cells obtain their mineral requirements from dietary sources. The body cells are thus being enabled to digest and assimilate the deficient mineral from the food in larger quantities than heretofore until such time as the requirement is met. In this way body cells are rejuvenated and  health and vitality restored.

The Biochemic Method
vs
Homeopathy


Similarities
1. Both systems used potentised remedies.
2. Prescription is based on symptomology

Dissimilars
1. The Cell Salt system regards illness chemically
whereas illness in Homeopathy is regarded
in terms of an unbalanced vital force.

2. The basis for cure in the Cell Salt system is that of
rectifying chemical deficiencies in nutrition
whereas the basis for cure in Homeopathy is holistic.
The Cell Salt system works from what it considers to be 
the cause of the disease
whereas Homeopathy works from the similimum

3. The Cell Salt system uses only 12 remedies
(or 27 if the new Cell salts are included)
to effect the cure of any health problem.
Homeopathy has several thousand remedies.

Identifying the Condition

1. Using Physical Symptoms.
This is most convenient for acute situations (ie diarrhoea, fever, back injury, gastritis, headache, sprains & strains etc).

2. Using Facial Analysis
This method is more suitable for the treatment of chronic long term conditions the precise causal symptoms of which may be unclear. It can also be used for the treatment of mental or emotional conditions and concerns. For example one may be bothered and anxious over issues such as: "Why do people treat me the way they do?" or "Why does the same theme keep repeating in my life?" or "Why do I react in the same way even when I know it is going to hurt me?" In many ways Facial Analysis corresponds to Constitutional prescription in Homeopathy.

Schuessler was the first to detect that the lack of minerals reflects as a disturbance in the body as well as in the face of a person. He understood Facial Analysis as an art and for him, all such signs were clear indications of an impending disorder.

His follower Dr Kurt Hickethier established the Facial Analysis Clinic in Germany and published the first standard reference text book on the subject in1936. Facial Analysis proved that every disease is caused by certain mineral deficiencies which are reflected in the face.

Our internal energy is reflected in our external appearance.  We are the sum total of what we look like, how we behave and all the events that we have experienced.  Each of us is unique and yet there is a blueprint to who we are.  That blueprint is our survival instinct and our face is an objective way of determining which survival instinct we inherited. 

Facial therapy has experienced a growth of popularity in the last few years and none has done more for its Homeopathic promotion then Grant Bentley. His two books on the subject are already regarded as seminal and bring the therapy into the contemporary 21st century. Dr Schuessler's Cell Salts have proved to be so successful that they survived over a century of medical advancement. This happened maybe because of the fact that Tissue Salts work with the cause and not only with the symptom.

Matching the Condition
with the Recommended Cell Salts

This is be done with the help of a Cell Salt Condition Index.
The Condition Index is an alphabetical list of symptom conditions against which are provided the recommended Cell Salts for treatment.
Thus if the presenting condition is cough/ eczema/ headache/ heartburn etc the recommended Cell Salts can be readily found by reference to the alphabetically arranged Condition Index.
Cell Salt Condition Indexes may be found in various publications or on the web

Cell Salt Condition Index - Web Based
A suitable web based Condition Index can be found
by clicking the MORE button below.

Beware however
a) The Condition Index is essentially a translation from German and some of the  conditions make for stilted English whilst others are unclear as to precisely what condition is actually referred to.

b) The Condition Index includes 15 New Cell Salts in its recommendations with Cell Salt numbers 1-27. This contrasts to Schuesslers sequence of 1-12 (which excludes the New Cell Salts). The last three Cell Salts (numbers 25-27) are not accepted by some authorities as being sufficiently proven to be included as Cell Salts unlike the first 24 which have universal acceptance.

c) You may experience difficulty in Europe obtaining the New Cell Salts outside of Germany. They are virtually unobtainable in the States.

d) The Condition Index uses the European Cell Salt numbering system rather than the more widely used USA system. The numbering differences apply to Cell Salts 1-12 only and a comparison of the two systems is provided in the foregoing table.

Directions for Cell Salt Use

Use with confidence
Bichemical remedies are perfectly safe. They do not produce side effects, react adversely with other medications and are non addictive. Infants and small children may use them with complete safety.

Things to Avoid
It is preferable to avoid taking the following up to 15 mins either side of dosing.
Coffee, caffeine containing products (ie cola, chocolate etc) alcohol, aromatics, flavoured toothpaste, garlic or other strong herbs, camphor containing products, tobacco, exposure to strong odours (ie fresh paint, Lysol etc)
Avoid contaminating the tablets by handling. Use the cap of the container to discharge the tabs into for counting purposes.

TopButton

Normal Dosage
(Single Cell Salt Dosing)

Infant
1 tab at a time taken up to 4 times a day

Child
2 tabs at time taken up to 4 times a day

Adult
 4 tabs at time taken up to 4 times a day

Normal Dosage
(Combination Cell Salt Dosing)

When combining Cell Salts (in situations where more than one Cell Salt is selected) the number of tabs taken each time increases with the number of Cell salts used.
Thus if 3 Cell Salts were to be used in the case of an Infant the dosage would be
3 tabs at a time taken up to 4 times a day

Acute Dosage
Every hour decreasing frequency as symptoms improve.

Very Acute Dosage
(Severe pain, epistaxis, haemorrhage, injury, wound, shock, trauma etc)
Every 15 mins decreasing frequency as symptoms improve.

How to Use

1. Internal Methods

Oral Soft Tab (Lactose) Method
These are soft lactose based tabs with a sweet milk sugar taste and dissolve very rapidly under the tongue (within seconds). They are ideal for young children who may tend to spit out the standard hard tablet. Count out the required number of tabs directly into the lid of the container. Place them under the tongue (sub lingually) so that the cell salts are assimilated by the oral mucosa directly into the blood stream.

Gum  Application
Alternatively the soft tabs can be rubbed directly onto to the gums
in the case of babies or young infants.

Cold Sip Method
Tip the required number of tablets for the complete day in a 0.5 litre bottle and fill with warm water. Shake to mix. Cool in a refrigerator.  Sip throughout the day retaining the liquid in the mouth and under the tongue for as long as convenient. The bottle need not be kept refrigerated after cooling.

Hot Sip, Method
This hot sip method is often used with the Cell Salt Mag-p which is particularly responsive to temperature. The Hot Sip method may also be used for any Cell Salt in situations where a fast response to medication is particularly required.
To prepare the Hot Sip add some hot water to a cup into which the required number of Cell Salt tablets have previously been placed. Allow to dissolve and sip (once the liquid is at a comfortable temperature) over the next hour or so retaining the liquid in the mouth and under the tongue for as long as convenient.

Dropper Bottle Method
Count out the required number of tabs directly into a cup. Make a solution of the Cell Salts by dissolving the tabs in a little tepid water (1-2 tablespoons). By squeezing the bulb of a dropper tube suck up half a tube of Cell Salt solution and squirt the liquid into the mouth or under the tongue. In addition to being suitable for small children this method may also be useful treating domestic pets. 

Scroll right for image of Dropper bottle  >>>>>>>>

2. External Methods
For external use the 3X potency is preferable
but otherwise the normal 6X
(which is used for internal dosing) may be used.

Cream Method
To prepare the Cell Salt cream.
Place the daily (or weekly) number of tabs of selected Cell Salts in a small bowl and add a small amount of water (1-2 tablespoons only) enough to obtain a tablet mash.
Mix the daily mash with about 1 oz of Calendula cream. Increase the quantity of Calendula cream proportionately when making batches to last for more than a day.
Apply the Cell Salt cream 3-4 times a day to the area requiring treatment.

Tablet Mash Method
As an alternative to the Cream method if Calendula is unavailable (or no suitable alternative) the same tablet mash may be directly applied to the affected area.

Compress Method
Spread the Cell Salt cream (or mash) on a clean cotton cloth and apply directly to the required area.
Wrap the cloth with a bandage/tape to fix it.
Leave the compress for several hours or overnight.
Remove the compress and rub the rest of the cream softly, until it is assimilated by the skin.

Navel Method
In the case of very young infants (or situations where oral administration is undesirable) the required number of tablets can be dissolved in a little tepid water (2-3 tablespoons) and applied to the navel.

Schuessler's
12 Cell Salts
(Original)

Oldenburg, Germany published Shortened Therapeutics in 1873. This eminently practical work concentrated on just 12 simple mineral combinations, or salts, which he believed to be crucial to the health of the body. Schuessler's students included major homeopathic figures such as H. C. G. Luyties of  St. Louis, and Dr. Constantine Hering of Philadelphia, author of Hering's Law of Cure ("Cure occurs from the head down, from within out, and in the reverse order in which the symptoms first appeared.")

 Efficient use of Schuessler's biochemistry requires three things:

- a working understanding of homeopathy,
- a recognition that LOCALIZED tissue mineral deficiencies may exist,
- and
practical experience. 

The safety of homeopathic preparations is so extremely good that practically anyone may learn about and try these "cell salts" at home for themselves and their immediate family.  More information on the salts and their specific health applications will be found in Dr. Schuessler's Biochemistry by J.B. Chapman, M.D. (London: New Era Labs, 1973).  Dr. Chapman's excellent book indicates some keynote symptoms for the cell salts, of which the following is a summary:

MORE ON THE SCHUESSLER CELL SALTS
 Twelve cell salts were recognized and categorized by a German biochemist William H. Schuessler in 1873.  He found that there are certain essential minerals that the body requires, in proper balance, in all of its cells.  An imbalance or a lack of any of these
minerals may lead to disease in the tissues so lacking. Providing the missing minerals to the tissues corrects that imbalance, and so eliminates the illness. 

This seemingly simple system of cure has great practical application in health.  Using only a small number of harmless combinations (or "salts") of these minerals, it is possible for any individual to treat him- or herself simply and effectively for a great variety of everyday minor ailments. It is significant that such cell-salt treatment is replenishing something the body lacks and wants, as opposed to merely suppressing illness with drugs and other chemicals.  Drugs do not provide missing cell nutrients, but drugs do add harmful chemicals to the body which ultimately compound the problem. 

The Schuessler cell salts may be seen as special raw materials for the body, which you need more of if you run out of what you normally have. A "salt" is any type of readily dissolvable mineral combination, not just table salt. Many people take dietary iron supplements, but few would chew on a rusty nail for  iron The same is true with the Schuessler minerals: the potassium, silicon, iron,phosphate or other substance must be in a special potentiation to be most useable to thebody. Most Schuessler cell salts are in a homeopathic potency, which uses minute quantities of a substance with great effect. The potentiation process multiplies the essential energy of a substance while at the same time decreasing the dosage amount.  The subtlety, harmlessness and effectiveness of such preparations have been clinically proven for well over two hundred years, since the beginnings of homeopathic treatment in the 18th century

 Schuessler cell salts (also called "biochemic cell salts") are a non-prescription item and are available directly from any homeopathic pharmacy.  Because of the medical profession's long-standing opposition to homeopathic remedies, it is not certain that your local drug store will even know what "cell salts" are, let alone stock themMost health food stores do carry them. Schuessler remedies are commonly in a "6X" homeopathic potency.  The "X" refers to the Roman numeral 10; 6x is one part in ten, repeated six times.Reprinted from the book

12 Cell Salts

Modern Nutritional Knowledge

As previously explained, Schuesslers choice of the original cell salts was confined to the essential minerals known at the time (1873). Since then great strides have been made in nutritional research and our understanding of the functions of the healthy organism. Other nutrients have since been identified as key factors in the maintenance of good health. These minerals, required in the diet in very small quantities, are termed trace element or micronutrients. Deficiencies of these essential nutrients in the diet have a profound effect on the entire organism, which may be cataclysmic.

These trace elements or micronutrients are listed below, with the year of those most recently identified as essential nutrients shown.

In 1993 Dr Cook carefully studied all mineral remedies in the Homeopathic Materia Medica which contain one or more of these new elements recently identified as essential nutrients among their constituents.

 

In every case disorders arising in the human organism resulting from a dietary deficiency of these elements matched the key proving symptoms of the remedy.

 

Here are some examples

Cuprum Aceticum (Copper acetate)

Nutritional Properties of the mineral
Copper deficiency results in anaemia (necessary with iron for the formation of haemaglobin), diarrhoea, speech defects, muscle spasms, cramp, rigidity and neurotic brain behaviour, weight loss, exhaustion.

 

Proving Symptoms of the Remedy
MIND: Decreased brain functions, delirium, maniacal talking, use of unintentional words, loss of consciousness, convulsions, fatigue.
HEAD: Vertigo, brain inflammation, violent throbbing headache.
STOMACH: Diarrhoea, colic, vomiting (Green/white), weight loss.
EXTREMETIES: Drawing and tension in all limbs, numbness, cramp in calbes, spasmodic contractions of fingers and toes, stiffness of limbs, paralysis.

The relationship between the proving symptoms of the Homeopahic remedy and the metabolic role of the essential mineral nutrient contained therein is clear if we compare them.

 

Remedy
Lithium Carbonicum (Lithium carbonate)

 

Nutritional Properties of the mineral
Deficiency of intake affects the entire organism. Mood swings, manic depressive illness, chronic rheumatism, stiffness in limbs.
Excess of lithium interferes with thyroid function and problems of insomnia, weight loss, weakness.

 

Proving Symptoms of the Remedy
MIND: Depression, moodiness, anxiety, (<morning) nightmares, lethargy.
HEAD: Headaches, confusion, dizziness, head feels large.
ABDOMEN: Pain in right kidney, burning in urethra, sore bladder, stools light yellow.
EXTREMETIES: Rheumatic pain in small joints, particularly lower limbs, swelling on small joints, paralytic stiffness in all limbs.
SKIN: Body itches, itching.

ALL SYMPTOMS: <morning, right side, pressure, movement

 

Thus by the same argument of relating proving symptoms and the symptoms arising from the deficiency or excess of the nutrient contained in the remedy, 12 new salts can be drawn up all based on the Materia Medica.

 

 12 New Cell Salts

His thesis is therefore that any fully proved Homeopathic remedy that contains one or more of the essential mineral nutrients not known to Schuessler has the potential to act as a cell salt conforming with the biochemical theory. Dr Cook selected remedies whose criteria suggest optimum clinical efficacy in this context. For example it should be noted that where possible the nutrients presented in the form of a mineral salt rather than the elements themselves are preferred. The ionize atoms of these elements can enter into spontaneous combination to form electro bonds with other atoms., thus rendering the elements biologically available more readily.

Dr Cook proposed the following new cell salt to be added to Schuesslers existing 12 salts. He emphasized that by doing so he in no way ran counter to Schuesslers original theory or even to homeopathic principles. All the remedies are in the Homeopathic Materia Medica and are fully proven.

Potency
Dr Cook suggested that whereas Scheussler's recommendation was for 3X or 6X potencies the infinitesimally small nutritional levels required for the new minerals in micrograms call for dosing at potencies of 6C or 12X.

 

Commercial Practice in Germany

However notwithstanding the recommendations of Dr Cook commercial practice took a slightly different route in Germany where an additional 15 Cell Salts were added to the original list making a total of 27 Cell Salts. However not all authorities agree with the inclusion of the last thee (ie Cell Salts 25-27) citing that insuffieient evidence currently exists to justify their inclusion. Another variation from Dr Cook's recommendation is that the actual salts chosen for the minerals differ on some instances. The current list of German New Cell Salts used in commercial practice is as below:

How Cell Salts Work
For an explanation of how Cell Salts help us absorb minerals look at magnetic principles. I like to use the following illustration:
Just as a north pole magnet repels another north pole magnet; a like homeopathic
medicine will repel a like vibrational illness in the body. Once the imbalance is thrown out, the body can heal itself. New studies verify that homeopathics do indeed carry a vibration with them. In magnetism a like pole repels a like pole.

But a weak like pole can also be regenerated by a like pole.
Likewise, cell salts help to strengthen their like fields in our bodies.
To encourage this regeneration, Cell Salts are taken at low potencies.

Why are Cell salts 
Essential?
Because minerals are the foundation for enzyme activity in the body and serve
as catalysts in energy cycles and functions.
For example, the body must first have minerals to make vitamins or make use
of vitamins regardless of the source. Cell Salts are used in the basic
functioning of the cells including water balance, digestion, removing toxins,
elasticity of the cells, oxygenation, nutrition, sodium/potassium balance etc.

Cell Salts are my first suggestion for people new to homeopathy because
of the ease of selection and dosing, the safety in potency and the quick results.
When I personally work with a client, along with selection of a remedy,
I will add the Cell Salt that is showing deficiency in the body.
I feel this is an essential step to enable the body to heal.

Testimonial,
"I must tell you that even though I have only used about 25% of the Calcarea Carbonia and Silicea remedies, amazingly we have already been able to tell that my upper abdominal muscle is tighter. I have always had a weak abdomen as I had two major surgeries prior to my tenth birthday.(incisional hernia) My wife and I can tell a difference so we're looking forward to seeing even more improvement.
