Mineral salts are small constituents of our cells, but nonetheless essential for their functioning. A deficiency or an imbalance of these vital minerals can lead to cell or even organ dysfunction.
Mineral salts may well be present in our food, yet they often do not end up where they are actually needed in our body.
Dr. Schuessler was a 19th centaury German physician who endeavoured to find natural remedies, and published the results of his experiments in a German homeopathic journal in March 1873, leading to an influential list of 12 Biochemic cell salts. He recognised that 12 of these minerals exist in every cell of the body (of every healthy person).
Dr Schuessler theorised that any symptoms reflect a deficiency of a particular mineral or minerals and he began using tiny amounts of 12 different biochemical tissue salts to treat symptoms and then developed combinations of salts for general use to help relieve symptoms.
