Common Uses

Tissue Salts were developed by a German doctor by the name of Wilhelm Schuessler in the 1800's. His theory was that many ailments were caused by imbalances of certain vital minerals in the cells of the body. This salt occurs in the connective tissue, and disturbance of its balance affects the nervous system from its presence in the coverings of nerve fibres. Disturbance of the silica content of the body usually ends in pus formation and Silica helps to promote and push out such pus. Therefore Silica can be thought of as a conditioner and a cleanser. It is also a preventative in premature ageing- a lack of this salt causing premature ageing by atrophy of tissues. In our food silica is found in wholemeal bread and is the 'grit' of our diet.

Suggested Dosage

Adults: Take 4 tablets, Children: Take 2 tablets, Infants take 1 tablet. For acute conditions: Take the appropriate dose every half an hour until symptoms subside. For chronic or maintenance dose, take the appropriate dosage three times daily. Take half an hour before meals. Place under the tongue, chew or dissolve in warm water.
