My favorite Tissue Salts or Cell Salts for Colds and Flu


What is a Tissue Salt?

They are homeopathic mineral salts. Each of the tissue salts, developed by a German physician Dr. Schussler, are biochemical salts of the twelve most common mineral salts in each of the body’s cells and tissues.  The balance of these salts in the cells is crucial to the body and when this balance is disturbed it affects cell function and can result in illness.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN EXACTLY? Cells operate with a delicate mineral balance, these minerals are the salts we are speaking of.  These cell salts work inside the cell, essentially feeding them what they need to function optimally, and helping the body assimilate the minerals it receives from the food you eat.

Although maintaining this balance of minerals through food is possible, we must account for the fact that we can lose these minerals through stress, environmental toxins, and bad habits such as smoking. Therefore taking cell salts is a great way to keep the cellular function of the body working at its best.
