Cell Salts

Tissue remedies also known as “Cell Salts” are an important nutrient for our body. For us to live a healthy and balanced life we need balance in the salts and minerals that we ingest.

The modern lifestyle sometimes does not allow us to keep our lives in balance. Stress in our work and family life, eating unhealthy food, lack of “downtime” and relaxation, eating processed foods with all kinds of unnatural additives and preservatives, environmental pollution, etc all affect us to varying degrees. Besides causing a plethora of diseases and symptoms, even in healthy individuals these toxic factors increase the amount free-radicals and deplete the everyday minerals necessary for a healthy and balanced life.

The 12 tissue remedies are cell salts our bodies need to fight the “stress” and function normally. They are prepared similar to homeopathic remedies and taken in low doses on a regular basis as nutritional supplements. I personally take the mix of all twelve salts as “Homeopathic Vitamins” when my body feels stressed.

Here are some examples of what these cell salts can help us fight in our everyday life:

  • Cough
  • Cold
  • Flu
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hair loss
  • Brittle nails
  • Obesity
