Schuessler’s Twelve Tissue Salts

Tissue Salts are non-toxic and non-addictive. They are considered safe with no known side effects. There are no known interactions with medications.

Homeopathy as we know it today dates back to the 18th Century, and the work of German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann. In the 19th Century, a discipline of Hahnemann, Dr W.H. Schuessler, started his own research and it's from his work that biochemic medicines have evolved. Dr Schuessler's research isolated twelve mineral tissue salts that are vitally important to the day-to-day healthy functioning of the body. Rather than treating ‘like with like’, these remedies treat ailments by correcting imbalances or deficiencies in the body's cell nutrition, helping the body to restore itself to health. They are also available in tissue salt combinations that address common complaints.

Tissue Salts are absorbed into the body via the blood vessels in the mouth, so holding the tablets in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing is useful. The Tissue Salts are quickly and directly absorbed.
