About Schüessler Cell Salts

Schüessler Cell Salts (also known as Schüessler Tissue Salts) are a form of oligotherapy and act on the cellular level to balance and restore cell function.

Modern lifestyles drain even the most health-conscious of us, and if you consider that you lose minerals through stress, worry, insufficient nutrition, electro-pollution, exposure to heavy metals, etc. it really is a wonder there’s anything left.

Discovered by Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schüessler (1821-1898), a German physician, he based his therapy on a total of 12 mineral salts, which he called “functional substances”, because they perform essential functions in our body and are suitable for remedying a multitude of functional disorders. Dr. Schussler had theorized that these mineral salts were vital for the regular functioning of the body’s cells, and concluded further that deficiencies in any of these tissue salts would lead to dysfunction and illness. Consequently, treatment of mineral imbalances in the body by tissue salts must be an essential factor for restoring health.

Schuessler believed illness was often related to a lack of one or more of these salts, and he thought that administration of the salts to the deficient organism would lead to healing. Schuessler Salts are able to harmonize and regulate chemical processes within the cells, and are beneficial to the digestive system, pancreas, kidneys and establish water-electrolyte balance within the body. Cell salts also nourish the blood, muscles, skin, hair and nails.

Benefits of Schüessler Cell Salts

Clinical experience has shown that Schüessler cell salts may be used for a number of conditions and issues, and that the benefits include:

  • Compensates for mineral lack in the cell
  • Encourages cells to assimilate minerals from other sources
  • Strengthens the tooth enamel and is helpful for sensitive teeth, both chronically and acutely (e.g. Calcanea fluorica)
  • Supports growth and development in growing children as well as regulates calcium metabolism (e.g. Calcanea phosphorica)
