Tissue Salts

What are tissue salts? Tissue salts are minerals that have been homoeopathically prepared to support the body's natural regulation of mineral cell levels. Developed by German physician, Dr. Schuessler, who believed proper mineral balance contributes to overall health, helping support the body to combat a variety of ailments by stimulating cell metabolism and assisting in the distribution of ingested minerals. Because tissue salts don't need to be broken down in the body's digestive tract like mineral supplements, they are easily absorbed and assimilated, and therefore highly efficient in balancing mineral cell levels in the body.

Benefits of tissue salts

Tissue salts can provide the body's cells with the necessary nutrients and mineral balance it needs to maintain normal cell function. This can help ward off illness due to nutrient deficiency, improve the absorption of essential nutrients, and promote overall health and wellbeing. Proponents credit tissue salts for improving a wide range of health concerns, from skin conditions like eczema to common digestive issues. Because tissue salts are taken in tablet form, typically chewed or dissolved under the tongue, the minerals are quickly absorbed into the body at a cellular level through the mucus membranes in the mouth with high efficacy.

Tissue salts for skin conditions

Minor skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and scaly skin can benefit from support of a range of tissue salts containing vital minerals for skin health, including calcium sulphate and silicon dioxide among others.

Silica is an essential mineral that's naturally occurring in the skin and is thought to be beneficial for the elimination of toxins as well as supporting skin elasticity and collagen. Taken as a tissue salt silica is easily absorbed at the cellular level for maximum efficacy, acting as a cleanser and conditioner to provide relief from skin conditions such as pimples, boils, and ulcers.

Comb D is favoured by tissue salt proponents for the natural relief of common skin conditions like acne, eczema, scaly skin and dermatitis. Containing a combination of key ingredients Kali Mur, Kali Sulph, Calc Sulph, and Silica for skin health, Comb D can support mineral cell balance by purifying the blood, carrying oxygen within cells, and detoxing the body. Devotees have found Comb D to be particularly beneficial for acne thanks to the effective combination of tissue salts, most notably Calc Sulph and Silica.

Tissue salts for stiff joints

Comb M is a combination tissue salt commonly used for rheumatic pain and is said to assist in providing relief from symptoms associated with stiff joints, poor mobility, and fluid build-up. Combining Calc Phos, Kali Mur, Nat Phos, and Nat Sulph, Comb M supports bone and tissue health by restoring balance to the main constituents of the body's cells, acidity levels, and disposing of toxic charged fluids. 

Popular tissue salts

There are twelve main tissue salts, each with their own purpose in supporting the body with cell metabolism and regulating mineral levels. Popular tissue salts include:

Mag Phos

Mag Phos is considered a muscle and nerve relaxant and can help provide relief from cramps, aches, twitches, and spasms, acting as an anti-spasmodic tissue salt. It can be particularly effective in shooting, darting, or spasmodic pain often caused by a deficiency relating to the nervous system.

Kali Phos

Kali Phos is a nerve nutrient that is based on potassium phosphate, which is naturally occurring in the body's tissues and fluids, particularly in nerve cells. Kali Phos is said to assist in providing relief from nerve-related issues such as nervous tension, irritability, depression, and tension headaches.

Ferr Phos

Ferr Phos assists in carrying oxygen around the body and is found chiefly in red blood cells. Ferr Phos is known as the First Aid remedy of tissue salts, assisting in reducing inflammation, redness, throbbing, and early-stage respiratory ailments. An iron phosphate, Ferr Phos can help assimilate iron absorption, reinforce blood vessel walls, and contribute to the conversion of nutrients to energy.
