What are Tissue salts?
You may have seen Tissue salts in health food shops or in your local Holland and Barrat, but 'What are they?' Tissue salts were developed by Dr. Schuessler, a German Doctor and biochemical medic, identified that when human cells are turned to ash, they exhibit 12 inorganic minerals. When these 12 minerals are in balance we are said to be in a state of health. These minerals are also found in the earth - which link to our food sources such as calciums, sodium, potassium, phosphates etc.
His knowledge of biochemical medicine and Homeopathy, Dr. Schuessler formulated what we now know as Schuessler Tissue Salts. For example one his 12 salts is Silicea which is important in human bodies by strengthens connective tissue, bones, teeth. For healthy hair, nails and skin. Combined with the stress of daily life, lack of vital absorption in the body, ill health these 'salts' can become out of balance - simply put we may use them as an extra support. Alike to adding Vitamin D spray we can add a Tissue salt right for own individual body! Especially in the winter season! Extra resources on Tissue salts see here
