What Are Cell Salts
By James F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler, N.D.

Cell salts are simplified forms of homeopathic remedies that quickly and simply alleviate many childhood health problems. Dr. Schussler, of Germany, discovered that twelve inorganic minerals were key constituents of cells. His theory was that a deficiency or an imbalance of these cell salts led to disease. By supplementing these naturally occurring biochemical cell salts, one can stimulate the cells to assimilate nutrients more efficiently. Replenishing and balancing these minerals restores the proper structure and the function of each cell, tissue, and organ. Ferrum Phosphoricum cell salt, for example, is a homeopathic dilution of iron, making it an excellent treatment for anemia because it bolsters iron assimilation in the cells, increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells.

How to Use Cell Salts

Cell salts are used similarly to other homeopathics. Just like other homeopathics, they are available in pellet, tablet, or liquid form. The most common potencies available are the 6x. They are best taken ten to twenty minutes between eating or drinking. For infants, cell salt tablets can be crushed and mixed in an ounce of purified water; then a few drops are put in the child's mouth with a dropper or a teaspoon. They are best taken away from strong-smelling odors, such as eucalyptus or essential oils.

For acute conditions, take cell salts every fifteen minutes or two hours, depending on the severity of the condition. For chronic conditions, cell salts are usually taken one to three times daily. Since they are of a low potency, cell salts are often used on a long-term basis.
