Other Interesting Points -
Cell salt therapy was developed by a German physician, W. H. Schussler, in the 1870s. Schussler studied cremated human bodies, and found that 12 substances made up the bulk of the remains. From this finding he theorized that these 12 so-called tissue salts are responsible for the harmonious functioning of the human organism. Disease follows when a person becomes deficient in any of the 12 salts. Schussler recommended that patients take the salts in pill form to cure a variety of disorders. He believed that the salts provided adequate nutrition to the cells. If cell nutrition was adequate, then cell metabolism would be normal, and the body would be healthy. However, Schussler's pills were not direct nutritional supplements as we would understand them today. He followed the principles of homeopathy, which works somewhat to the reverse of modern medicine, in that the smaller the dose, the more effective it is believed to be. Cell salts are prepared like homeopathic medicines, by a process of continued dilution and shaking or pounding (succussion).
Practitioners of cell salt therapy believe the minerals to be effective against a variety of ailments. For example, Calcarea fluor is thought to be essential to vascular health; it is given to patients with circulatory diseases or such conditions as varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and hardening of the arteries. Ferrum phos is used to treat colds, flu, and inflammation. Kali phos is used to treat body odor, as well as mental problems. Other salts treat other disorders, from cramps to gout to skin problems. Some are prescribed for general healing; that is, to restore general health to a person without any overriding specific disease..
