Tissue Salt Therapy


Tissue Salt Therapy is an alternative remedy which is based on the principle of organic salts.  Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler is credited with founding the principle that 12 minerals must be present in the body for it to function properly.  He believed that a lack of these vital mineral materials or improper distribution of them led to malfunction of the body which would then lead to disease.

Schuesslers’ Theory of Salt Therapy

Living cells are made up of water and organic matter.  The only substances the cells cannot produce by themselves are those of inorganic matter. The presence of minerals is essential for the creation of new cells and deficiencies interfere with proper functioning of the living cells.  Schuessler claimed that by ingesting cell salts the balance of these 12 salts could be restored.  His belief was not that the minerals needed to be replaced but that the cells needed to be prompted to restore the balance of their essential components.

The twelve salts identified by Dr. Schuessler are Calcium fluoride, Calcium phosphate, Calcium sulfate, Potassium chloride, Potassium phosphate, Potassium sulfate, Sodium phosphate, Sodium sulfate, Sodium chloride, Ferric pyrophosphate, Magnesium phosphate and Silicon dioxide.

Effects of Tissue Salt Therapy

The effect of these 12 minerals on the body is actually noted when not having a balance of them. According to the theory of tissue salt therapy it is the deficiency of these minerals that cause illness and complications of illness.  By giving the body a supplemental supply of the minerals it cannot produce on its own you are restoring balance to the cells and preventing or correcting the malfunction.

Tissue Cell Salt Therapy and Treatment

Each mineral is said to have a different effect when deficient in the body and the replenishment of them vary as to what your symptoms are.  For example, Calcium fluoride deficiency can result in loss of elasticity of the skin, causing cracked and callused skin.  Varicose veins, hemorrhoids and arteriosclerosis can also occur.  Calcium phosphate deficiency can cause malfunctions of bones and teeth such as rickets or a fracture that does not heal.  And Ferrum phosphate affects the immune and inflammatory responses of our body. Potassium chloride is used to remedy infections when they reach the second stage and a lack of this mineral is said to be responsible for coughs, colds and even asthma.

Tissue Salt Therapy is available in tablet form and is easily ingested.  The therapy has no known side effects and no adverse interactions with other medications.
