Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler, a German doctor, established the theory of Biochemical medicine in 1873. Dr. Schuessler combined the principles of biochemistry with homeopathy to give us the 12 safe and natural cell salts, each derived from one of the 12 inorganic mineral compounds most important to our cellular health.

How do Cell Salts work?

Cell salts stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to satisfy mineral deficiencies and imbalances. Dr. Schuessler, states in his theory, that deficiencies in these minerals give the body what it needs to maintain health and treat illness.

Who can take Cell Salts?

Cell Salts are specially formulated in homeopathic micro-doses, making them safe for the whole family including children over two years old and pets.
