Mineral salts are essential for our body, because they are involved in the elaboration of tissues and hormones, as well as in other important organic functions. Schüssler’s salts owe their name to Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schüssler, who made them known.
Schüssler coined the term biochemistry to refer to the procedures and reactions that occur naturally in the body, as well as to the treatment he developed in his research.
The basic principles of biochemistry point out those diseases are due to a deficiency of the minerals necessary for life, and that it is possible to heal by administering these minerals.
Schüssler developed his therapy based on the 12 salts, which are normally present in food and in our organism. He discovered that the ingestion of these powdered salts could restore bodily functions and correct functional disorders of the organism.
Each of the salts fulfills different functions, so their use will depend on the pathology, symptoms or body imbalance to be treated, and they are administered in the form of powder, tablets or granules that are placed under the tongue for absorption.
The main characteristic of Schüssler salts is that their active principle is homeopathically diluted and dynamized. That is, potentized according to homeopathic nomenclature.
Because they are easily absorbed, they can reach the affected tissue or organ in adequate concentrations to compensate for the mineral deficit, thus regulating cellular metabolism and stimulating healing.
However, it should be clarified that Schüsler salts are not a medical treatment, but a potentiating supplement.
How Schüssler’s Healy program of Schüssler Salts works
According to physics, the science that studies matter and the relationship between matter, energy, time and space, all matter is made up of atoms, and these are made up of electrons, protons and neutrons.
The whole universe is made of matter and energy, and the latter makes the atoms are in constant motion, through a wave propagation of energy that we call vibration and is considered as an oscillation.
The number of times an energy wave oscillates during one second is known as frequency. All matter has a certain frequency, and the phenomenon of coincidence between an internal and an external frequency is called resonance.
Healy’s technology is able to identify what our frequency is, and also provide us with the appropriate frequencies to correct or harmonize our bioenergetic imbalances.
In addition to identifying through the reading of frequencies, the possible deficiencies of mineral salts, Healy can supply the frequencies in resonance with each of these to obtain or enhance their effects, maximizing the results of the therapy.
What are Schüssler’s salts and their applications?
Calcium phosphoricum (calcium phosphate)
It is called the salt of growth and vitality, it intervenes in the mineralization of the bones and formation of the teeth. It also contributes to blood coagulation and improves the exchange of nutrients by permeabilizing the cell membrane. It is indicated in growth problems, habitual nasal bleeding, and for fracture recovery.
Ferrum phosphoricum (iron phosphate)
This salt is responsible for ensuring the correct assimilation of iron from food, as well as fixing oxygen in hemoglobin, so it is associated with everything related to blood circulation. It is useful in cases of anemia, hemorrhages, poor circulation, cramps, menstruation and concentration difficulties.
Kalium phosphoricum (potassium phosphate)
It is the main responsible for keeping the nervous system active and nourished, as well as the muscular tissue. A deficit of this salt can lead to disorders such as depression, insomnia, stress and mental exhaustion. Therefore, its use is recommended to recover emotional balance and also in cases of muscle weakening.
Natrum phosphoricum (sodium phosphate)
It is responsible for the neutralization of acids and the formation of body fluids, and is involved in the metabolism of fats. It also regulates the acid-base balance of the body. It is indicated in cases of reflux, gout, hyperuricemia, rheumatism, vomiting, digestive pain, diarrhea and symptoms related to degenerative processes.
Magnesia phosphorica (magnesium phosphate)
This salt intervenes in the formation of bones, muscles and nerves. It also decreases the nerve impulses that lead to the muscles, so it is analgesic and antispasmodic. It relieves nervous pain, spasms, cramps, acute pain, neuralgia, sciatica, colic and menstrual cramps.
Kalium chloratum (potassium chloride)
It works together with sodium chloride in the regulation of nervous and muscular excitation, and also intervenes in the formation of mucous secretions, and the regulation of body fluids. It is indicated to treat nasal congestion, conjunctivitis and bursitis, as well as inflammations and skin infections, such as eczema, herpes and burns.
Natrum sulphuricum (sodium sulfate)
It is responsible for the elimination of excess fluid in the pancreas, gallbladder and intestine. It is a metabolic stimulant and depurative, useful in hepatobiliary disorders, and also to alleviate problems of constipation, diarrhea, colic, rheumatism, skin rashes with blisters, acne and everything related to the purification of organs or detoxification.
Natrium chloratum (sodium chloride)
This salt balances the water in the body. Therefore, an alteration of this can cause dryness or excess fluids in the mucous membranes. It is useful during lactation, and also in cases of dry or watery eyes, dandruff, dry skin, diarrhea, constipation, edema and colds with nasal congestion.
Calcium sulfuricum (calcium sulfate)
It is responsible for purifying the body, as it participates in the elimination of wastes, stimulating the liver to accelerate detoxification. It is indicated for chronic suppurations, conjunctivitis, sinusitis, otitis, bronchitis, and all cases in which it is necessary to eliminate wastes such as pus and bacteria.
Kali sulphuricum (potassium sulfate)
It is called the salt of the skin and chronic processes. It transports oxygen inside the cells together with Ferrum phosphoricum, and intervenes in the healing of skin alterations. It helps to reduce chronic inflammations, chronic purulent catarrh of mucous membranes, gastrointestinal catarrh, hepatitis and nephritis.
Calcarea fluorica (fluoride calcium)
It is responsible for providing elasticity and strength to tissues, skin, bones, teeth and joints. It facilitates the reabsorption of hardened tissues and is useful in disorders such as wrinkles, stretch marks, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, teeth with cavities, corns, warts, conjunctival weakness, lack of body support or postural weakness.
Silicea (silicic oxide)
Also called cosmetic salt, it is part of skin, nails, hair and connective tissue. It increases the general resistance of the organism and activates collagen formation. Useful in artery problems, wrinkles, chronic suppurations, fistulas, formation of cysts and accesses, hyperhidrosis, and nail and hair disorders.
