Tissue Salts – Nature’s Miracle Micro-Nutrients! What are Tissue Salts and how to use them! (Plus a great weight loss tip!)

Biochemic Tissue Salts are specially prepared micro-doses of the body’s 12 essential minerals. In 1873, a German doctor, Dr Schussler, first identified these 12 tissue salts, or cell salts, as being the building blocks of all life, present in the body in certain proportions for optimum health. According to Dr Schussler, an imbalance in any of the tissue salts would result in 'dis-ease', depending on the tissue salt concerned. Tissue salts are therefore important elements of cellular health. 

These micro-minerals are important to:

  • assist the body with the optimal functioning of living cells
  • prevent deficiency and maintain cellular balance
  • assist in cell regeneration and replacement
  • help avoid common ailments or illness that may result from an imbalance in cell chemistry
  • promote optimum absorption of nutrients from the diet

Tissue Salts are natural, suitable for the whole family and may be taken alongside other medications and dietary supplements including minerals and vitamins. What is most amazing about them is that they are safe and gentle (yet effective) enough to be used by the whole family; adults (including during pregnancy), children, babies and even your family pet!

What most people don’t know is HOW to use tissue salts and so they often substitute them for vitamins and supplements. This is not what tissue salts are for and they are not a replacement for vitamin and mineral supplements. It’s important that you know that if your body is not mineral-enriched already, and receiving the correct vitamins, it will be unable to absorb whatever nutrients you put into it (scary stuff)!

This is why tissue salts are so crucial, especially as we live in a world where natural and organic produce and products are becoming scarce! Even the soil that farmers grow their crops in is becoming nutrient depleted! This makes it even more important to make sure that our body chemistry is balanced.

Whether you are wanting to lose weight, boost your immunity, detoxify your body, fight infection (and much more!) without the harmful side effects that conventional medications bring, then tissue salts will become your new best friend!

Tissue salts can be taken regularly 2-3 times a day to support health - or, in acute cases, as often as every 15 minutes until symptoms subside. What’s even better is that they don’t taste bad at all so children and babies should take them with ease (fur friends too!). It is recommended that you drink water when taking tissue salts to help your body with absorption.

I have suffered from hot flashes for the past 13 years. Sometimes they are worse than others but any small activity gets me going and I literally drip specifically on my head. It can really become embarrassing!! Is there a tissue salt I can use to help me cope?
