A range of self-selecting homoeopathic remedies. The range spans 30 remedies for self treatment of many common ailments. The pillules are chewed or sucked like the previous New Era ones, although they are not as quick dissolving. We do however have one in the quick dissolving format called trituration tablets.
There are 12 mineral tissue salts and 18 combination remedies which may be used for a variety of conditions.
PILLULES round sucrose pills, size no 6 (25 per gram approx) 700 per bottle TRITURATION TABLETS, quick dissolving lactose – soft tablets, 15 per gram (approx) 432 per bottle
**Special offer any buy 5 of the same tissue salt and we'll send you a larger 160g bottle saving you £8.95** plus free delivery (pillules)
(SHIPPING IS ONLY FREE WITHIN UK)
Please note we cannot take back any items that you may have ordered in a different format.
We can thank Dr Willhelm Scheussler, a prominent 19th Century German doctor, for the "discovery" of tissue salts. He conducted research that established that each human cell contains 12 minerals or biochemic tissue salts when reduced to ashes, and that these minerals should be present in all living cells in perfect balance to ensure good health.
Using a form of medicine known as biochemistry, he deducted that any imbalance of these salts, or a deficiency of any of the tissue salts, causes malady. The body then begins to develop symptoms associated with the tissue salts that are lacking. Therefore, he established that restoring the accurate balance of tissue salts in the body would remove the symptoms of illness and restore health.
Wikipedia asserts that biochemic cell salts are alternative remedies based on inorganic salts that were elaborated by Scheussler, and which are not classed as homeopathic remedies, since they're not purported to act according to the "like cures like" principle of homeopathy.
It also states that inorganic salts were first used as homeopathic remedies by Samuel Hahnemann, and further developed by Scheussler, who identified 12 different salts in human tissue based on his analysis of the inorganic constituents of cremated organs and remains.
According to Wikipedia, "even though water and organic matter make up a greater portion of living cells, the inorganic matter is the only substance that the organism/cells cannot produce by itself. Since the life of living cells is relatively short, the creation of new cells depends on the presence of minerals. Mineral deficiencies will inhibit the proper functioning of living cells."
How the body uses them
According to Eva Schoenfeld of the Academy of Tissue Salts and Facial Analysis most people are rather ill-informed when it comes to the benefits of, and how to take, vitamins and mineral supplements, believing that minerals on the cellular level can be replaced by vitamins and nutritional supplements.
"Vitamins and supplements can only get cellular acceptance provided the cells are adequately mineral-enriched and balanced in the first place. If these minerals (tissue salts) are absent, the body will battle to absorb even a tiny fraction of these 'intruders'. In this case, the supplements will rather become a stress factor for the cells, which are missing the minerals for their intra- and extra-cellular balance to pave a smooth entry for vitamins and other substances," she explains.
Schoenfeld uses the example of anaemic people and their iron intake to illustrate her point, and says that iron tablets or shots represent a big strain for the body. So, the easiest way would be to take the iron from our food, which can again be a problem unless you're eating guaranteed organic food that is still rich in nutrients.
"If the iron level in the cells is depleted, the body won't be able to absorb the iron. But once one has had sufficient tissue salts and refilled its deposits, the body will be able to absorb the iron, and that is the same case with every vitamin or food supplement. The body has to be enabled to receive any benefit from them."
