The human body contains 12 Biochemic minerals present in every cell whose correct balance is essential for the proper functioning of body tissues. Noted German biochemist Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler propounded that deficiency in any one mineral would lead to a disturbance in the cell life that creates a favorable environment for bacterial growth and thus illness is created. Tissues salts restore health by removing the mineral imbalances in the body.

About Dr. Schuessler and Biochemics
Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schüßler, a german medical doctor who pioneered natural remedies in the 19th century developed these salts using a unique system of cellular therapy and Biochemistry (chemistry of living tissues). Schuessler’s theory is based on the scientific understanding that the human body is an aggregation of microscopic, living cells. Each cell is made up of three classes of materials: water, organic materials (sugars and fats) and inorganic matter (minerals). Even though water and organic matter make up a greater portion of living cells, inorganic matter is vitally important. 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. His system of “cellular therapeutics” aims to prevent and address ailments caused by mineral imbalances. He utilized homeopathic doses of minerals in order to penetrate and fortify living cells with vital nutritional elements.
When Homeopaths cant find an appropriate remedy in homeopathic Materia medica or the repertory they resort to the Biochemic salts of Dr Schuessler to find a helping hand in treating their patients. They have reported successful use of these salts in treating tumors (breast tumors),anemia, hepatitis B and C etc.
How Biochemics play an important role in Health restoration?
Biochemics are also known as tissue salts or cell salts and are recommended in low decimal potencies for correcting deficiencies at cell level. The principle aim of Biochemic salts is to stimulate the body to harmonize the disturbances, and compensate for deficient absorption of minerals. These salts help to activate the healing processes and facilitate regeneration of body tissues and stabilize health. These natural salts are physiologically and chemically similar to the cell minerals in the human body and penetrate cells more easily than heavier minerals. So they play an active role in reorganizing disturbed molecular motion or cure imbalance of the respective minerals in cells thus restoring health.
There are 12 Biochemic tissue salts and each tissue salt covers numerous systems and symptoms. Biochemic salts enable better absorption of other nutrients and serve to “fortify” and energize living tissue. These come in various potencies and are widely used among children, infants and adults without any side effects. Safe for the entire family with no worries of any drug interactions. The treatment with biochemical remedies with important guidelines is indicated below

Treatment with Biochemical Remedies
This is an extract of therapeutic procedures of treatment. Range of the recommendations can be extended further substantially, but by conscious demarcation we intend to lead the keen readers into the vast subject matter by providing them an easy approach, and thus to prepare the foundation for a regular, more intensive interaction with this form of therapy.
When to practice self-medication with Bio chemics?
From the wide range of applications, therefore only those are selected preferentially which are experienced by every human being and appear in every family typically, such as the routine discomfort, malaise and minor illnesses. Even in these cases self-medication is more or less applicable only when the person seeking medical advice is in the position to assess his own condition on the basis of individual or general experience, and to arrive at a decision. In case of doubt about the kind development of an illness, a thorough clarification by differential diagnosis is always required. (This is fact also mentioned in the recommendations for treatment separately). This is especially applicable to wide-spreading health problems, serous and infection-related disease, as well as prolonged and chronic illnesses.
Time and Patience
A very important fact to be always kept in mind is that biochemistry cannot be expected to produce results overnight. This is already amply clear from the introductory notes on the basic notes on the basic principles of this form of remedial procedure. It is obvious that a certain period of time will have to pass until the “inner balance” is re-established and the functional efficiency of the organism is restored. This period must be endured with patience and critical self-observation. In most cases this biological process presupposes an adequately long period of intake of medical drugs. This does not imply that the patient has to accept the reality that the human body reacts to the drugs generally after a long time. “Everything can also go very fast”, depending on the initial condition of the patient, the extent of the health problems, his overall psycho-somatic constitution.
Dosage and Ingestion
According to Schuessler, “In acute cases a pea-size quantity of the trituration is administered every one or two hours, whereas in chronic cases it is three to four times a day”. Relatively high dosage is prescribed nowadays according to general understanding. In acute cases, 4 to 10 tablets should be taken every five minutes, and in chronic cases 4 to 8 tables up to 3 or 4 times daily. The intake should be ½ to 1 hour after the meals. These are taken without any fluid and are allowed to dissolve in mouth gradually, facilitating absorption of the effective substance directly by the mucous membrane in the oral cavity, bypassing the alimentary canal, and thus directly reaching the blood stream. In case of infants and younger children, the tablets are given in pulverized form and are put directly on the tongue. Strong stimulants like nicotine and alcohol as well as strong spices are strictly prohibited while under biochemical medication.
An exception to this scheme is Magnesium phosphoricum, which, as a rule, is dissolved in water and taken in sips,. Normal dosage can be exceeded in case of strong colic, attacks of acute pain and excruciating cramps or convulsions. On the basis of favourable results a practice has been established to dissolve half teaspoon of the drug in a glass of hot water (not to be stirred with a metallic spoon), and to drink this mixture every 2 to 5 minutes in small sips. The procedure can definitely be used, although not so clearly indicated in the therapeutic section. It bears the appropriate name “Hot Seven” under “the Chosen”, as Magnesium phosphoricum is numbered 7 in Schussler’s table of drugs.
Only 1 drug
In general it is recommended not to take various drugs simultaneously. If one has to take another drug then it should be taken on alternate days. Hourly alternation can also be practiced, if justifiable. Very rarely the ingestion of more than 2 different drugs is reported.
Of what potency ?
The choice of potency (3x, 6x, 12x, 30x and 200x) is very easy. Schuessler has used 6x most often for all of his functional drugs. Exceptions are Calcium fluoratum, Ferrum phosphoricum and Silicea, for which he prescribed 12x due to their low solubility. Today these 3 drugs are often taken in 6x potency. The 30x and 200x are mostly prescribed by doctors for treatment of difficult chronic cases. This scheme can surely be practiced, as there is scarcely any possibility of a “wrong” potency.
