Schüssler Salts are minerals essential for important metabolic processes. Schüssler salts are chemical combinations of metals and non-metals.
There are twelve main Schüssler salts, and they are all over the body.
Sometimes the body does not get the minerals it needs. Other times, independent body cells are unable to absorb these minerals.
Dr. Heinrich Wilhelm Schüssler concluded that when a cell is lacking one of theses minerals it develops different symptoms and pathologies.
If we administer suitable salts a physiological balance is reached at the cellular level. Also the symptoms gradually disappear.
Schüssler salts are so diluted that they reach every cell in the body.
Schüssler salts are not homeopathy. Schüssler salts are biochemical. They are in the form of ointment or tablets. Schüssler salts work by removing functional disorders of the body because they provide the necessary minerals.
Schüssler salts stimulate the body to heal itself. They do not act by similarity like homeopathy.
