Cell salts are body–proper singular minerals which everybody possesses to a certain extent. The cell salt therapy according to Dr. Schüssler is based on the fact that physical and mental complaints can arise when a body does not produce sufficient cell salts in order to function properly. This shortage can have various causes such as illness, pollution and stress. The cell salts consist of specific negatively and positively charged components, called ions. These ions are the carriers of electric body energy, which determines a great deal of physical functions, such as muscle activity and nerve activity. Depending on the electric charge proportion within and outside the cells, mineral compounds are formed from singular minerals, also known as cell salts. Because cell salts are body–proper substances, the cell salt therapy according to Dr. Schüssler is a risk–free therapy, without side–effect and therefore highly suitable for auto medication for young and old, humans and animals.
The cell salt therapy by Dr. Schüssler is aimed at solving the shortage of cell salts, caused by strain. In other words: when the 12 cell salts are present in the correct proportion and in the right place in the organism, the body is in optimal health. The metabolism does not function correctly when there is a shortage of cell salts. And a poor metabolism leads to strain, which eventually leads to complaints.
The salts are derived from the fundamental building blocks, the so–called minerals of the body, amongst which calcium, potassium, magnesium, and others. Our body consists mainly of water in which these minerals can be found in specific proportions. The correct proportions are necessary for the many processes which take place within the body. In case of a shortage of these minerals, you generally feel less vital and you are more susceptible to all sorts of illnesses. The cell salts are highly energetic and they stimulate the natural regenerating ability of the organism. Cell salts are no medicines and can therefore be combined with any form of medication without risk.
