The 12 Primary Tissue (Cell) Salts and Their Health Benefits
By Bettina Rasmussen

Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler, a German medical doctor who sought natural remedies, introduced Tissue Salts, also known as Cell Salts. In March 1873, he published the results of his experiments in a German homeopathic journal, creating a list of 12 "biochemic" cell salts. These cell salts remain popular in alternative medicine today, demonstrating the effectiveness and relevance of Dr. Schuessler's groundbreaking research.

Tissue (Cell) Salts play a crucial role in promoting the body's natural healing process by effectively regulating the mineral levels in cells and providing essential nutrients necessary for optimal function. Due to modern food processing and commercial farming practices, the depletion of trace minerals in our bodies has reached up to 70%. What are Tissue (Cell) Salts?
Used for over 150 years, but only gaining popularity until recently, tissue salts are now being recognized and widely accepted in Western culture. Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler, discovered that ill-health was caused by an imbalance in the bodies that correlated with the lack of the twelve cell salts.

His findings were that the 12 Tissue (Cell) Salts) are responsible for the balancing and functioning of the human body and if one or more of these Tissue (Cell) Salts), became deficient within our bodies then dysfunction would occur.
Maintaining balanced levels of the body's 12 essential minerals is crucial for the proper functioning of cell metabolism and efficient nutrient distribution. Any mineral imbalance may lead to chronic health conditions and impede nutrient absorption, eventually leading to illness and disease.

Schuessler believed that these imbalances could be corrected by easily creating diluted micro-doses of salts that can be broken down into the digestive tract for easy absorption and effectiveness.
According to Schuessler, there are 12 main Tissue (cell) Salts.

How are tissue salts used?

Tissue salts are commonly available as lactose tablet that has a very small amount of the chosen Tissue (cell) Salts. Typically, these tablets aren’t made to be swallowed, but dissolved under your tongue.

A homeopathic practitioner may recommend a number of tissue salt products if you need help with more than one health condition or you can select each Tissue (cell) Salt depending on your physical or emotional imbalance.

Are there side effects of tissue salts?

Because the amount of the mineral in a homeopathic tablet is so small, there’s a low risk of side effects or interaction with other medications.

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathic medicine is a medical system that was developed in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, a German medical doctor. It’s based on two primary theories:

Like cures like. A disease can be cured by a substance that produces symptoms similar to those in healthy people.

Law of minimum dose. The lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness will be.

Homeopathic remedies are trusted and used worldwide by alternative doctors and regular people because of their gentle yet powerful healing properties.

Last Word

Nearly 200 years of work-of-mouth evidence between people and alternative doctors suggests that the 12 tissue (cell) salts in homeopathic medicine can address a variety of health issues.

Unfortunately, the scientific community doesn’t support the concept that the very small amounts of minerals in homeopathic medications are enough to make a significant contribution to the treatment of health concerns or diseases.

If you’re considering homeopathic treatment, you might want to talk with a doctor before starting.
