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.

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

  1. I’m hoping you might have answers to this. I’m trying to figure out how many of these small tablets to give to a cat that’s 10 lbs? He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer so I wanted to get him on #10 and #11. Thanks!

    • 1 to 2 tablets a few times a day should work well. You can’t considered cell salts in the same category as pharmeuciticals and therefore can be given more frequently without causing any harm, as in an acute situation where they would be given every 15 minutes. The organic substances found within cell salts are used for building the cells of the body, not to mask a dysfunction or to supress ailments.

      I hope your kitty starts feeling better.
