When beginning a detoxification program, using tissue salts just before your main detox regime may help with the process.
Start the day with fresh lemon (preferably organic) in warm filtered water – at least 500 mls.
Day 1 – Take Calc Sulph (#3) to purify the blood. Take 4 tablets, placed under the tongue to dissolve, 6 times a day, spaced approx. 4 hours apart.
Day 2 – Take Kali Mur (#5) to help correct sluggish, congested conditions. Take 4 tablets, placed under the tongue to dissolve, 6 times a day. Spaced approx. 4 hours apart.
Day 3 – Take Nat Sulph (#7) to help with a congested liver. Take 4 tablets, placed under the tongue to dissolve, 6 times a day, spaced approx. 4 hours apart.
Do not drink any liquid for 30 minutes after taking the tissue salts.
For extra detoxifying, have an Epsom salt bath at night. A common formula is to add a cup or two of Epsom salt to warm water in a standard-size bathtub. If your bathtub is bigger or smaller than most, you may want to adjust the amount of Epsom salt you add – remember more salt isn’t necessarily better. Make sure you drink lots of water during and after your bath!
Once you have followed this three-day tissue salt cleansing program, begin taking the supplements and following the detox diet prescribed for you.
How do tissue salts work?
Biochemical tissue salts, or cell salts, are mineral salts that exist in the cells and play a critical role in cellular metabolism. They are some of the more misunderstood supplements. Often confused with homeopathic products, they’re actually part of the Biochemic System of Medicine and are better recognised as naturopathic remedies.
Tissue Salts vs. Homeopathy
In the case of homeopathic remedies, they are prescribed on the basis of the “law of similars” (like cures like). Thus, if a given remedy is given to a healthy person and produces certain symptoms, it will cure those same symptoms in a sick person.
The use of cell salts by Dr Schuessler’s method is based on the “law of opposites.” If there is a deficiency of a specific cell salt, then one must supply a small quantity of that salt to remove any symptoms arising from that deficiency.Tissue Salt Therapy is Based on Natural Principles
Dr W.H Schüssler developed twelve remedies which he called salts–meaning compounds–that can correct imbalances at the cellular level and successfully treat illnesses. He believed that health is the body’s natural state and that diseases were accompanied by biochemical imbalances of twelve vital mineral compounds, and that the body can heal itself by restoring an underlying imbalance.
Schüssler analysed human blood and tissues and found the most essential minerals to be calcium, chlorine, fluorine, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silica, sodium and sulfur. The twelve naturally occurring tissue salts are made up of combinations of these minerals.
