Tissue Salts for Health & Menopause

Tissue or Mineral salts also know as ‘Homeopathic vitamins’, ‘homeopathic building blocks’, and ‘micro-dose minerals’

Tissue salts are minerals that were first used in homeopathic medicine by Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler in the 19th century. They were formulated to support your body’s health by regulating your cell’s mineral levels.

These cell salts are a group of 12 homeopathically prepared minerals and mineral salts. They are the inorganic constituents that make up the material basis of the human body. In other words, the physical structure of our bodies boils down, in essence, to these 12 major components in various components. (This is an oversimplification, but gives you a basic idea of their principle.)

Minerals like Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Sodium and Sulphur are all contained in the Tissue Salt programme. 

These remedies are called cell salts, because they rebalance the functioning of the body at the level of the cell. They support the body to create health beginning at this very basic level. 

Our cell’s role is to provide us with energy and nutrition, keep us safe from infectious diseases, repair damaged tissue, and regulate processes like breathing and digestion.

The potency (strength) of cell salts is always a 6X or 12X (also known as 6D or 12D). This is a potency at which the final product is below Avogadro’s number, so there are trace molecules of the original substance left. This is why it is often thought of as micro-dosing of minerals. 

The goal with cell salts is to use a micro-dose to stimulate the body to better regulate those mineral levels by itself.
