“You can trace every sickness, every disease, every ailment to a mineral deficiency” – Dr Linus Pauling
German physician and biochemist Dr. Wilheim H. Scheussler identified twelve inorganic minerals present in each cell. These minerals include forms of calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, silica and sodium. These essential salts act as catalysts for cellular bio-chemical processes within the human body. Schuessler proposed that illness was related to a deficiency in one or more of these twelve major mineral substances and when a deficiency is corrected normal cellular function and health is restored. As a Physicist, specialising in homeopathic biochemistry Scheussler devoted many years into the development of the Schuessler tissue salts. Throughout years of research Schuessler identified that it was the compositions of theses minerals which determined cellular function and differentiation. Therefore it is clear and well proven that a balance of these twelve bio-salts are a vital component required for healthy cellular activity and homeostasis.
“The twelve mineral salts are, in a very real sense, the material basis of the organs and tissues of the body and are absolutely essential to their integrity of structure and functional activity. Experiments prove that the various tissue cells will rapidly disintegrate in the absence of the proper proportion of these salts in the circulating fluid. Whereas the maintenance of this proportion insures healthy growth and perpetual renewal.”
“These mineral salts, therefore, the physical basis of all healing. Regardless of the school employed, if these are absent from the blood and tissues, no permanent cure is possible.”
-Dr. Charles W. Littlefield – analytical chemist
Dr George W. Carey and Inez Eudora Perry adapted Schuesslers ideas into a more complex system of esoteric healing which lays very much in harmony with the homeopathy and alchemical traditions. Carey and Perry suggested that each of these inorganic minerals correspond in vibration to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. As the hermetic axiom “As above, so below, the human body is an epitome of the cosmos therefore the physical and energetic systems of the human body, the tissues and the organs each correspond to one of these signs.
There are 33 degrees of the spinal column, or the Tree Trunk, which must be climbed with the Sacred Seed of Alchemy and each ‘step’ or each ‘degree’ leads to higher states of illumination. The Alchemical ‘hero’ travels below into the abyss of Hell to steal fire from the devil and return it above to the Heavens; this represents our battles with sexual desire and the returning of the Sacred Seed above.
33 vertebrae exist in total, 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoraic, 5 lumbar in the small of the back, 5 fused vertebrae forming a solid bone, the sacrum (tail bone). Looks like an inverted pyramid and was also called “the seat of immortality.” In the coccyx, at the bottom of the sacrum are fused 4 bones. If you were to multiply the number of vertebrae, 33 by 2, counting both sides of the vertebrae on the spinal column we will find the number 66. (33 x 2=66) 6 is the number of man, for he was created on the 6th day, there are also 66 books of the Bible given to man. (66 + 6=72)
As for the Human Skull. It has 22 bones, it sits at the top of the spinal column. The Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, the 22nd letter, Tav, means Light. There is much to be said about t his which we will deal with in other writings. At the top of Jacob’s Ladder stood Yahweh, the Light of the world. The light of the body is the eye (mind-brain), says Jesus. 22 is the Number of Light.
If we lift up or raise the oil in the spinal cord, by the power of the seed, by saving it, it must be a physiological and chemical operation within the body of each of us. Such is the case. There is no mystery, no marvel in all the universe that is greater than man himself. “Man know thyself” confronts us, down through the ages, but only a few have paid attention to the voice of the Delphic oracle only a few have looked within.
There is a wonderful “Strait and narrow way,” a real strait, not straight, which extends from the upper brain, the cerebrum, to the end of the spinal cord, otherwise named Jordan, in the Bible. We find that the meaning of this in Hebrew is, descender or “River of God.” The “Strait and narrow way is, indeed, the River of God, for it leads to the Father the Most High the upper brain
“The same is true of the manna that descended to feed the Children of Israel in the wilderness , for this manna is a substance which comes down the Spinal cord from the brain. The Hindus symbolized the spine as the stem of the sacred lotus;therefore the skull and contents are symbolized by the flower. The spinal column is Jacob’s ladder connecting heaven and earth, while its 33 segments are the 33 degrees of Freemasonary and the 33 the number of years in the life of the Christ. Up these segments the candidate ascends in consciousness to reach the temple of initiation located on the top of the mountain. It is in this domed room with a hole in the floor (Foramen Magnum) that the great mystery initiations are given.” — Manly P. Hall; The Occult Anatomy of Man
THE BRIDGE OF LIFE
The statement of the Holy Writ, that “man is conceived in sin and bought forth in iniquity” has a three folded meaning: chemical, physiological and astrological. According to Carey in his book ‘GOD-MAN The word made flesh’, the real meaning is that the human embryo remains nine months within the female reproductive system and during the nine months of gestation the embryo receives and appropriates the creative energies of nine of these salts. Thus falling short three months of completing a solar or ‘soul’ year. The three-month space is the bridge of life and consists of a mineral base foundation. This is the journey of the ego from the moon to the earth, or conception.
As twelve represents the
circle and stands for completion, the human body will always be missing
(stones in the temple) cell salts because its period of formation in the
womb is only nine months. Twelve months (12 salts) minus the nine
months gestation (9 salts) leaves us with a 90°quadrant of three months
where the cellular biosynthesis of these minerals were unable to
manifest. These three salts according to Carey are to be supplied after
the parting of the umbilical cord. The chemical union of these bio-salts
with the organic matter such as lipids, fibrin, albumin etc., forms the
various tissues of the body and administers to the physiological needs
as represented by the bridge. This bridging allows the cells to respond
more harmoniously and completely to the divine energy.
The cell salt corresponding with the sign of the zodiac and function of the body is consumed more rapidly than all the other salt and therefore requiring an extra amount to supply the deficiency caused by the suns influence at that particular time. When someone is under emotional stress people will use up more of the cell salts associated with their Moon sign and south Node of the moon, when these minerals are depleted common symptoms experienced may be anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Identifying and supplementing with the cell salts will strengthens your moon and restore balance.

The Intelligence of the Cell Salts That Build the Human Body and the Plant
“Of Earth and air the body of man is made, and in death it returns to
air and ashes, that plant-life may in new forms develop new powers”.
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and Man became a living soul”.
The foregoing statement from the Bible, is in itself conclusive proof that the physical body is made from earth and air. As the human body must be sustained, it must be supplied with the same material from which it was made “in the beginning”, namely dust of the ground which is mineral or inorganic salts and air.
The true meaning of artery is “air carrier”, and it is through the arteries that the blood pours from the lungs, after it has been charged with air, oxygen. It is then that the most marvelous and wonderful process of precipitation or materialization of flesh takes place, as this oxygenated blood reaches all parts of the body, and is precipitated into flesh, bone, muscle, nails, hair, etc.
Before the blood has been carried through the lungs it has been supplied with the mineral, or inorganic salts, which have been carried into it through the delicate absorbent tubes of the mucous membrane of stomach and intestines.
The Bible does not state that the body of man was made from the food that must have been eaten, but plainly states “from the dust of the ground”. Therefore it is evident that we must concede that as food is necessary to sustain life it is the dust of the ground or in other words the inorganic or mineral salts contained in the food which are the stones or minerals from which the human temple is built. The air we breathe Furnishing the material which precipitates the mortar which holds them together thus meso or Mason.
There are many things that are needful in order that the process of bodybuilding may be carried on successfully, but there are two things that are absolutely necessary and those are, air and food. Water is required, but food may contain much liquid material.
The body is built therefore from the 2 substances without which it could not exist .
On the rock, Peter or Petra meaning stone, of the mineral salts is the human structure built and the grave, stomach, or hell shall not prevail against it. The minerals in the body do not disintegrate in the grave. They are found intact long years after the form has disappeared.
As the mineral salts in the food furnish the base of the blood, we know that the food which is taken into the stomach and which contains them in combination must be separated in order that the salts may be set free. In order to accomplish this the food is acted on by the gastric juice, bile and pancreatin which sets up a combustion or burning, and the oil or fibrin, which has held the different minerals together in the food, is burned up in this process. The minerals which are then free may be any of the 12 basic salts which are found in the ashes of the cremated body, which are potassium, sodium, lime, iron, magnesium, silica, etc.
Food is fuel and must be digested or burned in the stomach and intestinal tract to furnish Force to run the physical machinery as well as to set free the cell salts, which remain intact and are not changed in any manner, therefore “The Gates of Hell (grave or stomach) do not prevail against them”.
The mineral salts of the human organism are intelligent entities and work under divine guidance which man has designated as chemical affinity.
These molecules of iron, lime, magnesia, potash, sodium, and silica must have certain substances to work with such as albumin, fibrin, oxygen, water, etc or they cannot work that is “they have lost their saver” or substance.
The mineral salts are the base of blood and good blood is the product of proper balance of the dynamic molecules. Poor or imperfect blood is the product of a break and the molecular chain of the salts. Having “lost the savor” some of the salts are good for nothing and hence the deficiency that causes so-called disease.
Those who insist that the inorganic salts must pass through the vegetable in order to become “organized” are in error. The salts build the vegetable or fruit, and are not acted upon, nor in any manner changed by the process.
Vegetation cannot exist in the absence of the mineral base but the minerals exist in the absence of the plant.
salts in soil, vegetable and in the ashes of a cremated body possess
the very same formula, which proves that “the gates of hell did not
prevail against them”.
Those who claim that the inorganic salts cannot be prepared fine enough to be taken up by the absorbance of the mucous membrane make a statement at variance with facts. Science Now prepares these salts much finer than those contained in grain, vegetable, or fruit.
Professor Liebig, the worldwide authority in chemistry says “it happens that a tissue in dis-ease reaches such a degree of density, becomes so clogged, that the salt solution of the blood cannot enter to feed and nourish it but if, for therapeutic purposes, a solution of salts be so triturated and given so diluted that all its molecules are set free, it is presumable that no hindrance will be in the way of these molecules to enter the abnormally condensed part of the tissue.
Professor Huxley said at an international medical congress in london “I believe it will, in a short time become possible to introduce into the human organism a molecular substance that will, by the law of chemical affinity, find its way to the particular group of cells or nerve plexus that may be in need of it”.
Professor Virchow in his
lecture on cellular pathology says “the cells of the organisms are not
fed, they feed themselves. The absorption of matter into the interior
of the cells is an act of the cells themselves”.
Alfred Binet a noted French scientist says in his work the psychic life of microorganisms the microorganisms do not nurse him themselves indiscriminately nor try to feed blindly upon every substance that chance may throw in their way. The microscopic Cellular in some manner know how to choose and distinguished Elementary substances from particles of sand. Let us remember that the cells are a product of the mineral salts.
So I am led to believe that the cells must be intelligent organisms, and can choose their own nourishment. This being the case how foolish if not criminal to place only a poisonous agent within their reach.
As the research of Binet, the french scientist , show that organisms select their own food from the material at hand, so does the pomeranian scientist, the great Virchow, clearly demonstrate that the cells that build the human form divine, also select their nourishment from material within reach, and that nothing foreign to their constituent parts can be forced upon them, except to produce injury or death. Professor Virchow’s research demonstrate the fact that abnormal cells are caused by a lack of the chemical constituents that are required to produce normal cells.
The renowned Dr. Schuessler says “the inorganic substances in the Blood and Tissue are sufficient to heal all diseases that are curable at all. The question whether this or that disease is or is not dependent on the existence of germs, fungi, or bacilli is of no importance in biochemic treatment. If the remedies are used according to the symptoms, the desired end, that of curing dis-ease, will be gained in the shortest of way”.
Many of the ancient wisdom teachings understood the mathematical concepts of connecting the Universal Human Body and its correlation to Cosmobiology. The mathematical and astrological correlations were made between the principles in the cosmos and its relevance to organic life forms, as well as the necessity to study the effects of these cosmic forces, and the stellar movements and astronomical conjunctions that impact the world of forces on the earth.
The Pythagorean Mystery Schools taught that the solar system is one massive musical instrument, and that the twelve signs of the zodiac may be compared to the semitones of the chromatic scale. The chromatic scale is a musical scale with twelve pitches or frequency tones, each a half tone above or below the tone next to it. This same structure also represents the architecture that exists within the dimensional scale of the holographic reality. The twelve planets constitute the white keys of the cosmic musical key board. Each constellation is an intelligent consciousness body that transmits spectrums of color wave frequency and mathematical coded patterns connected to building metaphysical structures into form.
Each constellation represents an astrological sign that responds to a certain frequency tone and color wave. Some of these frequency tones blend together and are harmonious, while others clash into discordance and distortion. As we can sense the disharmony and conflict made between certain notes of a piano, or feel the distortions running in mainstream music, this impact has the same effects within these metaphysical forces. There are similar themes of harmony or discordance that transpire between the alchemy of forces that occurs within the various constellations of the zodiac, the twelve planets and various celestial bodies that have a great effect on human beings. These instruction sets are inherently recorded in the spiritual blueprint and design of every human being on the earth.
When incarnated into a physical human form, we evolve through the stages of the Precession of the Equinoxes, and this progression takes us through the all twelve layers of archetypal forces that hold instruction sets for the Universal Human Body structure, as well as levels of DNA transmission. As the Sun moves through each constellation, we receive frequency exchanges of intelligent instruction sets that are designed for the human body to evolve towards increasing DNA activation and spiritual ascension, which are alchemical forces being transmitted into the earth field.
When astrological alignments occur through major conjunctions made between planetary and stellar bodies, forces of alchemy occur which alter frequency current and manifest new creations that help to expand consciousness, at planetary and personal levels. With the war over consciousness, humanity is undergoing psychological operations to prevent them from actually participating or being aware that these stellar forces are being transmitted to the earth for purposes of bio-spiritual evolution.
Mystery schools developed the field of iatromathematics, or medical astrology, and viewed the entire matrix of the human body through astronomical and astrological principles, as well as the bio-mechanics. The twelve astrological signs contribute a specific law of structure that is incorporated within each part of the human body from head to toe, inside and outside. Moreover, planets and the existing cosmos in space are directly correlated with certain parts of the body that are designed to overall unify the layers of consciousness structures.
Through examining a natal chart, iatromathematicians studied the patterns of the birth imprint as the star (soul) body, and were able to study the various combinations of energetic forces and how these forces impacted the human body and consciousness. By observing the behavior profile that would show general tendencies in constitution and disposition, they would become aware of the specific patterns in that individual, to help guide them towards aligning with their highest nature and achieve the state of health and wellbeing. Each of us can study our own astrological patterns in order to gain knowledge about the internal workings of the self.
The human bodily form represents the movement that is made through the precession of equinoxes, with each astronomical and astrological principle having direct relevance to our physical and spiritual anatomy. When we remove or transplant body parts, we are removing imprints and specific principles in our bodily structure that alter and change consciousness influences, which have consequences to our spiritual development. Not to mention the potential issues in overall biological functioning, such as internal circuitry disconnection between transplanted organ systems that can block integrative and holistic healing for the body, mind and spirit.

ARIES AND POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE
Cell Salt #6
KALI PHOS. (Nerve Nutrient)
Kali Phos. (Potassium Phosphate) is found in the tissues and
fluids of the body notably of the brain and nerve cells. It has an
antiseptic action and counteracts decay in the organism. Kali Phos.
Is indicated for the treatment of nervous headaches, nervous dyspepsia,
sleeplessness, depression, languid weariness, lowered vitality,
“grumpiness” and many other conditions. Kali Phos. Is not
merely a pick me up, it is an important constituent of nerve tissue and
consequently has a wide and powerful influence on the bodily functions.
It covers ailments comprehended by the nervous system. Kali Phos.
Is indicated in the treatment of shingles, to correct the underlying
nervous condition. It is helpful for the relief of nervous asthma, in
conjunction with Mag Phos., and insomnia when of nervous origin also calls for these two tissue salts.
TAURUS AND SODIUM SULPHATE
Cell Salt #11
NAT SULP (Water Eliminator)
Nat. Sulph. (Sodium Sulphate) regulates the density of the
intercellular fluids (fluids which baths the tissue cells) by
eliminating excess water. This tissue salt largely controls the healthy
functioning of the liver, it ensures an adequate supply of free-flowing,
healthy bile, so necessary for the later stages of digestion. The
removal of the chemical exchanged constantly taking place in the tissue
cells, is brought about by the action of Nat Sulp. If conditions arise
which allow these waste fluids to accumulate in the blood and tissues,
auto-intoxication (self-poisoning) is the result. Nat Sulph ensures the
disposal of these poison-charged fluids and its importance in the
treatment of rheumatic ailments is therefore elf-evident. Nat Sulph is
indicated in the treatment of ailments affecting the liver, e.g.
biliousness. Sandy deposits in the urine, watery infiltrations, a
brownish-green coating of the tongue and a bitter taste in the mouth are
some of the symptoms. It is the principal remedy in the treatment of
influenza, eliminating the excess of toxic fluids from the system.
GEMINI AND POTASSIUM CHLORIDE
Cell Salt #5
KALI MUR. (Blood Purifier & Glandular Tonic)
Kali Mur. (Potassium Chloride) is a remedy for sluggish conditions.
It combines with the organic substance, fibrin. Thus a deficiency of
this tissue salt causes fibrin to become non-functional, and to be
thrown off in the form of thick, white discharges, giving rise to
catarrh and similar symptoms effecting the skin and mucus membrane. Soft
glandular swellings call for this remedy: also chronic rheumatic
swellings. Its action is complementary to that of Calc sulph, as both
remedies are concerned with cleansing and purifying the blood. It is of
particular value in the treatment of infantile eczema. In alteration
with Ferr Phos it is frequently needed for the treatment of children’s
ailments. Kali Mur is the remedy for thick, white fibrinous discharges.
Other prominent symptoms are a white-coated tongue and light-coloured
stools (lack of bile). Torpidity of the liver is another indication. In
alternation with Ferr Phos it is indicated in the treatment of
inflammatory diseases, particularly those affecting the respiratory
system – coughs, colds, sore throats, tonsillitis, bronchitis, etc. Kali
Mur is concerned with the production of saliva and is therefore
important in the early stages of digestion. The symptoms may be worse
after eating fatty or rich foods and there may be lack of appetite. With
Nat Mur it is utilised in the production of hydrochloric acid, and is
thus an essential link in the process of digestion.
CANCER AND CALCIUM FLUORIDE
Cell Salt #1
CALC FLUOR. (Elasticity Salt)
Calc Fluor. (Calcium Fluoride) is present is the surface of the
bones, in the enamel of the teeth and in the elastic fibres of the skin,
muscular tissue and blood vessels. A deficiency of calc fluor results
in a relaxed condition of the tissues. This tissue salt is indicated
wherever symptoms are due to a relaxed condition e.g. enlarged and
varicose veins, with associated ulcerations and eczema, plies, sluggish
circulation, relaxed throat. It should also be considered for
constipation, when due to relaxed muscles of the rectum. A backache with
dragging down bearing pain calls for this remedy, and so does chronic
synovitis. Calc Fluor is also of value for diseases affecting the
surface of the bones, crack and cuts in the skin. A poor condition of
the enamel of the teeth calls for this tissue salt.
LEO AND MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE
Cell Salt # 8
MAG PHOS (Nerve Relaxant/ Anti-spasmodic Salt)
Mag Phos. (Magnesium Phosphate) is connected with the nervous system
where it supplements the action of Kali Phos. When a deficiency of Mag
Phos occurs, the white nerve fibres contract, causing spasms and cramps.
This tissue salt is of importance to muscular tissue ensure rhythmic
and coherent moment. Mag Phos is quick to relieve pain, especially
cramping, shooting, darting or spasmodic pains. Mag Phos is indicated
for nerve pains, such as neuralgia, neuritis, sciatica and headaches
accompanied by shooting, darting stabs or pain. It relieves muscular
twitching, cramps, hiccups, convulsive fits of coughing and those
sudden, sharp twinges of pain that are so distressing. It also relieves
menstrual pain. Stomach cramps and flatulence respond to treatment with
this tissue salt. These symptoms may be aggravated by cold and by
touching and are relieved by the application of heat, by pressure and by
bending double. The dose may be taken at frequent intervals until
relief is obtained.
VIRGO AND POTASSIUM SULPHATE
Cell Salt #7
KALI SULPH. (Skin Balance)
Kali Sulph. (Potassium Sulphate) has a special affinity for those
cells forming the lining of the skin and those forming the internal
mucous lining of all internal organs. Together with Ferr Phos, Kali
Sulph carries oxygen to the cells and tissues. A deficiency of Kali
Sulph causes a lack of oxygen leading to chilliness, flashes of heat,
pains in limbs which move from place to place. Kali Sulph is the
function remedy of the epidermis and of the epithelium. A deficiency of
this tissue salt causes a yellow slimy deposit on the tongue, yellowish
or greenish discharge from any of the mucous surfaces and epithelial or
epidermal scaling. Hence Kali Sulph is required for certain forms of
catarrh and skin troubles with scaling. It is of value in the treatment
of Psoriasis and Athlete’s Foot. Brittle nails call for Kali Sulph (also
Silica). With Silica and Nat Mur it helps to maintain the hair in a
LIBRA AND SODIUM PHOSPHATE
Cell Salt #10
NAT PHOS. (Acid Neutraliser)
Nat Phos. (Sodium Phosphate) is present in the blood muscles, nerve
and brain cells, as well as in the intercellular fluids. An acid state
gives rise to rheumatic troubles, digestive upsets, intestinal disorders
and has an adverse effect upon assimilation. Nat Phos helps to regulate
the consistency of the bile and is one of the remedies indicated in the
treatment of jaundice, colic, sick headaches and gastric disturbances.
One of the functions of Nat Phos is that of promoting the absorption of
water, as a result of the decomposition of lactic acid. This function is
quite distinct from that of Nat Mur which distributes water and Nat
Sulph which eliminates surplus water from the body. These three tissue
salts, by their presence in normal balance, entirely control the
behaviour of the body fluids. Nat Phos serves to emulsify fatty acids;
it is indicated in he treatment of dyspeptic conditions due to eating
fatty or greasy foods. A deficiency of Nat Phos allows uric acid to form
salts which become deposited around the joints and tissues giving rise
to stiffness, pain and swelling. All exudations are creamy golden-yellow
and the tongue is similarly coated.
SCORPIO AND CALCIUM SULPHATE
Cell Salt #3
CALC SULPH. (Cell Healer/ Blood Purifier)
Calc Sulph. (Calcium Sulphate) is found in the liver where it helps
in the removal of waste products from the blood stream and it has a
cleansing and purifying influence throughout the system. Calc Sulph
cleans out the accumulation of non-functional, organic matter in the
tissues and causes infiltrated parts to discharge their contents
readily, throwing-off decaying organic matter, so that it may not lie
dormant or slowly decay and thus injure the surrounding tissues. Calc
Sulph is indicated in conditions arising from impurities in the blood
stream. It supplements the action of Kali Mur, in the treatment of
catarrh, acne, etc., and it should always be given when “pimples” occur
in adolescence and for gumboils. If there is a deficiency of the tissue
salt in the connective tissues, then skin eruptions could turn to
abscesses and ulcers. Calc Sulph has been found of value in the
treatment of frontal headaches and neuralgia in the elderly.
SAGITTARIUS AND SILICA
Cell Salt #12
SILICA (Cell Cleanser)
Silica is present in the blood, skin, hair and nails. It is also a
constituent of connective tissue, bones, nerve sheaths and mucous
membranes. Its action is deep and long lasting, and it is indicated in
imperfectly nourished constitutions where there is a history of
deficient assimilation. Silica acts more upon the organic substances of
the body, involving particularly the bones, joints, glands and skin and
is indicated wherever there is pus formation or threatened suppuration,
e.g. abscesses, boils, gum boils, styes etc. It is useful in the
treatment of tonsillitis when puss has began to form. Brittle nails and
an impoverished condition of the hair need this tissue salt. Silica is
helpful as a supplementary remedy in cases of dyspepsia and pains in the
region of the stomach. The symptoms are usually worse at night and in
the morning and are relieved by the application of heat.
CAPRICORN AND CALCIUM PHOSPHATE
Cell Salt# 2
CALC PHOS. (General Tonic/ Nutrition Salt/ Bone Health)
Calc Phos. (Calcium Phosphate) is a constituent of the bone, teeth,
connective tissue, blood corpuscles and gastric juices. It unites with
albumin giving solidity to the bones, building the teeth. Bone is 57%
Calcium Phosphate. It uses albumin as a cement to build up bone
structure and it is concerned with the formation of teeth, hence its
value to children. When there is a deficiency of Calc Phos there is
defective nutrition. It promotes healthy cellular activity and restores
tone to weakened organs and tissues. It assists digestion and
assimilation and is a valuable tonic. Calc Phos is indicated in the
treatment of simple anemia in conjunction with Ferr Phos. In such cases
there are often spasms and pains accompanied by sensations of coldness
and numbness. If the circulation is slow and retarded then Calc Phos is
called for. It is of value in the treatment of chilblains. Senile
itching of the skin (pruritus) points to Calc Phos in alternation with
Kali Phos. It should also be considered for enlarged tonsils, and nasal
polyps. Calc Phos is a useful intercurrent remedy as it assists the
action of a more directly indicated tissue salts and thus produces more
AQUARIUS AND SODIUM CHLORIDE
Cell salt #
NAT MUR. (Fluid Balancer/ Water Distributing Salt)
Nat Mur.(Sodium Chloride) is the water-distributing tissue salt. It
enters into the composition of every fluid and solid of the body.
Because of its powerful affinity for water, it controls the ebb and flow
of the bodily fluids – its prime function being to maintain a proper
degree of moisture throughout the system. Without this tissue salt, cell
division and normal growth could not proceed. It is closely associated
with nutrition and with glandular activity. Excessive moisture or
excessive dryness in any part of the system is a clear indication of a
Nat Mur deficiency. The resulting symptoms are many and varied but
always, underlying them, will be found this predominant condition of too
much or too little water. Here are some typical symptoms: Low spirits,
with a feeling of hopelessness; headache with constipation; difficult
stools, with rawness and soreness of the anus; colds with discharge of
watery mucus and sneezing; dry fermentation with slow digestion, the
food remains too long in the stomach; great thirst; toothache and facial
neuralgia with flow of tears and saliva; eyes weak and wind causes them

apply locally as soon as possible An important function of Nat Mur is
the production of hydrochloric acid. Too little acid means slow
digestion, especially of calcium rich foods. A point worth bearing in
mind is that salt may be used freely in the diet yet the effected tissue
cells can suffer from a molecular deficiency leading to watery
exudation or excessive dryness. The cells cannot take up the particles
of the salt unless offered in an attenuated form. Furthermore, the
tissue salt Nat. Mur. Can be used with advantage in cases when a salt
free diet is recommended. Approximately two thirds of the body is
composed of water, hence the vital role played by Nat Mur, the water
distributor, in all the life processes.

Cell Salt #4
FERR PHOS. (First Aid Salt/ Oxygen Carrier)
Ferr Phos. (Iron Phosphate) is known as the First-Aid Salt. It is regarded as the oxygen-carrier. It enters into the composition of hemoglobin, the red colouring matter of the blood. It takes up oxygen from the air inhaled by the lungs and carries it in the blood stream to all parts of the body thus furnishing the vital force that sustains life. It gives strength and toughness to the circular walls of the blood vessels, especially the arteries. Freely circulating, oxygen-rich blood is essential to health and life and for this reason Ferr Phos should always be considered, as a supplementary remedy, no matter what other treatment may be indicated by the symptoms. Congestion, inflammatory pain, high temperature, quickened pulse, all call for more oxygen, and it is Ferr Phos that is the medium through which oxygen is taken up by the blood stream and carried to the affected area. This tissue salt can be given with advantage in the early stage of acute disorders, and it should be administered at frequent intervals until the inflammatory symptoms subside. It is also indicated where there is a lack of red blood corpuscles, as in anemia. It is an excellent remedy for ailments associated with advancing years and it is one of the most frequently needed remedies in the treatment of children’s ailments. Ferr Phos should also be thought of as a first-aid in cases of muscular strains, sprains, etc. Bleeding from wounds, cuts and abrasions can be controlled with a little powdered Ferr Phos, applied direct to the injured part. NOTE: Ferr Phos is in no sense an iron tonic. Its action is entirely nutritional and without any side effects. In its potentised or biochemic form this tissue salt has none of the disadvantages in ordinary iron medicines as it is easily assimilated by the blood.
