Happy Birthday Dr Schüssler

Schussler-Salts was founded by Dr (med) Wilhelm Heinrich Schüssler

If Schüssler was still alive he would celebrate his 200th birthday on 21st August. It is thanks to him that we are able to draw on his Mineral Therapy and support our physical and psychological well-being today.

The discovery and currency of Schüssler-Salts over 130 years ago is owed to three further scientists besides Dr Schüssler. The annals already start well before 1873…

From Research of the Cell to the Holistic Therapy

These four scientists laid the foundation of today’s natural medicine with Schüssler-Salts.

Professor Dr Rudolf Virchow (1821 – 1902)

The pathologist at the Charité in Berlin explored the smallest unit in the human body – the Cell. In 1858 he made the revolutionary discovery of “Cellular Pathology”, which implies that diseases are due to dysfunctions of the cells. This insight cast doubt on the entire medicinal knowledge. It lead to a new perception of disease and healing. This was the basis of Dr Schüssler’s Mineral Therapy.

Jacob Molschott (1822 – 1893)

The Dutch psychologist ascertained the importance of mineral salts for the function of the human organism. Amongst others he dwelt upon the research of the metabolism and accomplished essential contributions to blood physiology of the human being. In his work “Cycle of Life” he referred to the power and effect of mineral salts in the natural cycle of nature.

Dr Wilhelm Heinrich Schüssler (1821 – 1898)

The doctor and homoeopath developed his new therapy from the knowledge of the cell and the importance of the mineral salts. He was impressed by the insights of Rudolf Virchow – he was in particular fascinated by the connection between disturbed cell functions and illnesses. Following his own research, he founded the mineral therapy, named after him, which he called “Biochemistry”.

Dr Willmar Schwabe (1839 – 1917)

During Schüssler’s time, the pharmacist and scientist Willmar Schwabe already produced mineral salts of the highest quality for a large clientele. Thus he laid the foundation for the standardisation of high-quality compounding.

The TWELVE vital Minerals

Mineral salts are vital for our body. They are required for numerous biochemic processes, are indispensable for the cell structure and information brokerage from cell to cell.

Find out which is the most suitable mineral for you in this short profile.

No. 1 Calcium fluoride 12X – The Salt of Connective Tissue, Joints and Skin

No. 2 Calcium phosphate 6X – The Salt of Bones and Teeth

No. 3 Ferrum phosphate 12X – The Salt of the Immune System

No. 4 Potassium chloride 6X – The Salt of Mucous Membranes

No. 5 Potassium phosphate 6X – The Salt of Nerves and Psyche

No. 6 Potassium sulphate 6X – The Salt of Purification

No. 7 Magnesium phosphate 6X – The Salt of Muscles and Nerves

No. 8 Sodium chloride 6X – The Salt of Fluid Balance

No. 9 Sodium phosphate 6X – The Salt of Metabolism

No. 10 Sodium sulphate 6X – The Salt of Inner Cleansing

No. 11 Silica 12X – The Salt of Hair, Skin and Connective Tissue

No. 12 Calcium sulphate 6X – The Salt of the Joints

Listen to your Body

We all know – Sometimes we feel imbalanced. One reason could be that our metabolism got mixed up. Mineral Therapy according to Dr Schüssler focuses on the natural functions of our body and is able to support the realignment of our physical and psychological well-being.

A healthy lifestyle does not only incorporate adequate exercise, balanced diet, sufficient regeneration, or meditation. Health is not only the absence of pain and disease, but includes our entire physical and emotional well-being. But nevertheless we sometimes demand far more of our body than it is used to or in fact is good. For instance prolonged sitting or stress at work, poor diet, too little or even too much training, etc.

Why don’t we think more sustainable where our body and health is concerned? By tuning into the first signals one is able to strengthen one’s forces and therefore not only treat symptoms but at the same time the cause of health problems. However, a vital aspect is an optimal mineral metabolism in the cells. Because: A functional and healthy cell metabolism reflects in our entire personality.

Sometimes the mineral metabolism and thus the body’s own equilibrium gets muddled. We can either ride the low out, or actively counteract by assisting the body in its self-healing process.

This is exactly the principle of Dr Schüssler-s Mineral Therapy – It brings the body with its natural functions into focus, aims at its strengthening and the stimulation of the organism’s self-healing forces. And this simply can be achieved with the 12 Mineral Salts.

Burnout – Assistance with Schüssler-Salts

Those who suffer from burnout often take medication to treat complaints like exhaustion, insomnia, pain, or depression. One of the essential causes for burnout is continuous stress, which ensures that the mineral depots in the body become depleted.

An alternative to school medicine are Schüssler-Salts. They assist the body to utilise the minerals, absorbed through food, in a gentle manner, and reduce disorders.

The following Schüssler-Salts have proven beneficial for Burnout:

No. 5 Potassium phosphate 6X helps with physical and mental exhaustion as well as depression. In acute situations, you can take one tablet every 5 minutes until the complaints improve. After a day at the latest, apply the standard recommended dose – 1-2 tablets 3 times daily (adults).

Salt No. 7 Magnesium phosphate 6X strengthens the nerves and provides calm and relaxation at night.

Tissue salt No. 2 Calcium phosphate 6X relaxes muscles and strengthens the body.

In case of exhaustion, supplementary remedy No. 22 Calcium carbonicum 6X is recommended as it caters for an improved body regeneration.

If you would like to use the Schüssler-Salts as a course of treatment, we recommend the Anti-Stress and Nerve Course of Treatment including tissue salts No. 2 Calcium phosphate 6X, No. 5 Potassium phosphate 6X and No. 7 Magnesium phosphate 6X.

Calcium fluoride is present in tooth enamel, the bones as well as in the cells of the epidermis. Furthermore, it is vital for the skin, tendons, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels and nails. It provides the tissue with the required elasticity and firmness.

Sodium chloride is essential for the organism. Approximate half of the sodium is located in the fluid outside the cells, the so-called ‘extra cellular fluid’. In addition it exists in the bones, the cartilage, the stomach and the nerves.

As a component of the connective tissue Silica (silicic acid) is indispensable for the body. It is involved in the makeup of the tissue structure.
