The 3 Stages of Inflammation

The Inflammation Pattern

Dr Schüssler allocated three salts likewise to the three phases of an inflammation. The stages help you to easily find the appropriate mineral according to the health problem. The procedure in accordance with the stages of inflammation is recommended in all acute afflictions, for instance a cut, insect bite, a cold, or even an upset stomach after spoiled food.

Symptoms of an Inflammation

These four classic signs represent every inflammation:

  • Redness
  • Heat
  • Swelling
  • Pain

In case of internal problems these symptoms are only felt, they are not visible. However, the thumb of rule is that every acute process, not only on the skin but also inside the body exhibits these inflammatory signs.

First StageNo. 3 Ferrum phosphate 12X

This salt is applicable for acute affliction with redness, swelling, pain, and heat – e.g. wounds, injuries, burns, insect bites, and all coughs and sneezes.

Second StageNo. 4 Potassium chloride 6X

The second phase shows with constipation, and blood coagulation in wounds. In case of mucositis (nose, throat, stomach) clear symptoms appear that indicate inflammation. Sometimes the transition of the two stages are fluent, therefore it is recommended to take minerals No. 3 and 4 in alternation.

Tip: Use No. 4 cream externally for injuries, swellings, and contusions once the 1. stage of inflammation is over.

Third StageNo. 6 Potassium sulphate 6X

With an ideal proceeding of the inflammatory phases, the third stage completes the healing process. the body evacuates dead cells and pathogens with the pus and new skin and mucous membrane is formed. However, when this process stagnates, e.g. noticeable on badly healing skin or pus, yellow phlegm, the body requires tissue salt No. 6 Potassium sulphate.

Tip: Ulcerations in the sinus cavities – with or without the involvement of the ears – rub in No. 6 cream on the nasal mucous membrane (indurations come loose, everything can drain off and heal).

Schüssler-Salts for Fat-Burning

If you want to lose weight you should focus above all on regular exercise and a healthy, calorie-conscious diet. But it often happens that success in losing weight fails or weight reduction stagnates. One reason could be the lack of essential mineral salts, which can slow down metabolism or cause hunger attacks.

Find out which Schüssler-Salts compensate the deficiency and may support you in weight-loss:

  • No. 3 Ferrum phosphate 12X – Has a stimulating effect on the metabolism, cleansing effect on the blood, and strengthens the muscles.
  • No. 4 Potassium chloride 6X – Soothes ravenous hunger, assists the body in the decomposition of toxins and waste products, and strengthens circulation.
  • No. 5 Potassium phosphate 6X – Well suited to support nerves, blood and connective tissue, and for the general strengthening of the body.
  • No. 7 Magnesium phosphate 6X – Generally loosening and relieving effect on body and soul. It also benefits digestion, in so far that it helps with a moderate approach to eating and the acceptance of the new dietary situation.
  • No. 9 Sodium phosphate 6X – Releases acids from the tissue and thus has a de-acidifying effect on the entire body. Negative thoughts are also “dispersed”.
  • No. 10 Sodium sulphate 6X – Has a stimulating effect on the excretory organs such as liver, kidney, large intestine and gall. This provides for an optimal support in the excretion of “superfluities”.

3- to 6-weeks Intensive Treatment with Schüssler-Salts

One option to enhance successful weight-loss is the following three to six weeks course of treatment:

Step I:

To begin the treatment, so best in the morning of the day when starting this three to six weeks course of treatment, prepare yourself a hot Schüssler drink (similar to the “Hot 7”). Place 3 tablets of each of No. 4 Potassium chloride, No. 9 Sodium phosphate and No. 10 Sodium sulphate in a cup and top up with hot water. Allow tablets to completely dissolve then slowly sip the drink, whilst keeping each sip in the mouth for a few moments. This allows a better absorption via the oral mucosa.

This way your body receives a high dose of supportive minerals straight from the beginning.

Step II:

From this day onward, for three days, take one tablet of each Schüssler-Salts No. 4, No. 9 and No. 10  – six times a day for (= 6 tablets of each). Tablets should be allowed to dissolved in the mouth, and after each administration make sure to drink a glass of water to ensure easy excretion of released toxins.

Step III:

After the first three days take one tablet of No. 4 Potassium chloride, No. 9 Sodium phosphate and No. 10 Sodium sulphate each day for the following three to six weeks (depending how long your personal course of treatment should last).


Schüssler-Salts No. 3 Ferrum phosphate, No. 5 Potassium phosphate and No. 7 Magnesium phosphate can be administered according to your individual needs.


For an enhanced weight-loss success and as a supplementation, it is recommended to use Schüssler-Cream/Lotion No. 1 Calcium fluoride externally. Apply this cream to your problem areas both at night before going to bed and in the morning after getting up – massage the cream/lotion into the areas until fully absorbed by the skin.

It is very important to drink plenty of water for the accruing toxins to be excreted from the body!
