Can a Simple Salt Help My Family's Health?


Cell salts are one of easiest remedies to use at home, one of the most inexpensive, and completely safe for the whole family. They do not interfere with medications, they taste good (kids love them), and they are readily absorbed by your mucous membranes (and not the digestive system which is often faulty).

Cell salts, also known as tissue salts or mineral salts naturally exist in human cells and play a critical role in regulating cellular metabolism.

The health of a cell is critical to our overall health. In 1872 a German Homeopathic physician, Dr. William Schuessler, developed what has become known as the 12 Schuessler cell salts. Schuessler reasoned that an imbalance in these minerals was actually the cause of many diseases and maladies.  His findings determined that if this balance of minerals in the cell is upset, there can be a change in the state of immunity and resistance to microbes.  He also studied and catalogued various symptoms that can result from any cell salt deficiency.  These cell salts are homeopathically derived, allowing them to be a more bio-available form to the cell.

Modern lifestyles drain even the most health conscious person.

These much needed levels of mineral salts can be easily depleted through everyday stress, poor nutrition, anxiety, environmental toxins, exposure to heavy metals and contaminated drinking water.  I know of practitioners who use ONLY cell salts in their practice and have great success. The beauty of cell salts is their ease of use and kids love them. I never have a problem giving them to my daughters. You cannot harm yourself with cell salts.

Cell salts can really help the next time your family suffers from an ailment!

Take a look at this list below to see if you recognize any of these imbalances, and then use either of these methods to take them:

1) Dry method: tap 2-4 pellets or tablets into the cap and drop them into the mouth. Most children prefer this method due to the sweet taste.

2) Wet method: put pellets in clean water and consume throughout the day.

Acute cases take 2-3 pellets or tablets as often as every hour or two hours. Chronic cases take 2-3 pellets,   1- 3 times a day.
