Biochemic Medicines and Cell Salts
In the mid-1800’s, Dr. WH Schuessler, a scientist, recognized that an imbalance of the body’s 12 essential inorganic compounds resulted in disease.
He developed a healing system using them called Biochemic Medicine. According to Schuessler, this system has 3 basic principles:
- The human body contains twelve essential mineral (tissue) salts, a correct balance of which must be maintained to ensure normal cell function and the maintenance of good health.
- Any disruption to this balance results in illness.
- A normal balance of these vital mineral salts can be re-established by giving the deficient mineral as a cell salt. The salts pass rapidly into the bloodstream and the cells.
Highly Absorbable Minerals
For rapid assimilation, each of the 12 minerals is prepared homeopathically, yielding the cell salts.1
