Salt = Salvation = salt=sol yourself, your body is a pillar of salt, 12 minerals, the building blocks for your body.


Integumentary System

Components: Skin and associate structures, such as hair, fingernails and toenails, sweat glands, and oil glands

Functions: Protects body: helps regulate body temperature; eliminates some waters; helps make vitamin D; detects sensations such as touch, pain, warmth, and cold

Skeletal System

Components: Bones and joints of the body and their associated cartilages.

Functions: Supports and protects body: provides surface area for muscle attachments; aides body movements; houses cells that produce blood cells; stores minerals and lipids (fats).

Muscular System

Components: Specifically, skeletal muscle tissue--muscle usually attached to bones (other muscle tissue include smooth and cardiac) and Tendons. 

Function: Participates in body movements, such as walking; maintains posture, produces heat

Nervous System

Components: Brain, spinal cord, nerves, and spinal sense organs, such as eyes and ears

Functions: Generates action potentials (nerve impulses) to regulate body activities; detects changes in body's internal and external environments, interprets changes, and responds by causing muscular contractions or glandular secretion

Endocrine System

Components: Hormone-producing glands--pineal gland, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thymus, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries and testes--and hormone-producing cells in several other organs.

functions: Regulates body activities by releasing hormones (chemical messengers transported in blood from endocrine gland or tissue to target organ.

Cardiovascular System

Components: Blood, heart and blood vessels: veins and arteries 

Functions: Heart Pumps blood through blood vessels; blood carries oxygen and nutrients to cells and carbon dioxide and waste away from cells and helps regulate acid-base balance, temperature and water content of body fluids; blood components help defend against disease and repair damaged blood vessels.

Lymphatic System and Immunity

Components: Lymphatic fluid and vessel; spleen, thymus, lymph nodes and tonsils; cells that carry out immune responses (B cells, T cells and others).

Functions: Returns proteins and fluid to blood carries lipids from gastrointestinal tact to blood; contains sites of maturation and proliferation of B cells and T cells that protect against disease-causing microbes.

Respiratory System

Components: Lungs and air passageways such as the pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), trachea (windpipes), and bronchial tubes leading into and out of lungs.

Functions: Transfers oxygen from inhaled air to blood and carbon dioxide from blood to exhaled air; helps regulate acid-base balance of body fluids; air flowing out of lungs through vocal cords produces sounds.

Digestive System

Components: Organs of gastrointestinal tact, a ling tube that includes the mouth, pharynx (food tubes), stomach, small and large intestines, and anus; also includes accessory organs that assist in digestive processes, such as salivary glands, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. 

Functions: Achieves physical and chemical breakdown of food absorbs nutrients; eliminates solid wastes.

Urinary System

Components: Kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and urethra

Functions: Produces, stores and eliminates urine; eliminates wastes and regulates volume and chemical composition of blood; helps maintain the acid-base balance of body fluids; maintains body's mineral balance; helps regulate production of red blood cells.

Female Reproduction System

Components: ovaries and associated organs--uterine tubes, uterus, vagina and mammary glands.

Functions: Gonads produce ocoytes that unite to form a new organism; gonads also release hormones that regulate reproduction and other body processes; associated organs transport and store gametes; mammary gland produces milk.

Male Reproduction System

Components: Testes and associated organs--epididymides, ductus, deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis

Functions: Gonads produces sperm that unite to form a new organism; gonads also release hormones that regulate reproduction and other body processes; associated organs transport and store sperm



  Dr. William H. Schuessler of Oldenburg, Germany published Shortened Therapeutics in 1873. This eminently practical work concentrated on just 12 simple mineral combinations, or salts, which he believed to be crucial to the health of the body. Schuessler's students included major homeopathic figures such as H. C. G. Luyties of  St. Louis, and Dr. Constantine Hering of Philadelphia, author of Hering's Law of Cure ("Cure occurs from the head down, from within out, and in the reverse order in which the symptoms first appeared.")

 Efficient use of Schuessler's biochemistry requires three things: a working understanding of homeopathy, a recognition that LOCALIZED tissue mineral deficiencies may exist, and practical experience. The safety of homeopathic preparations is so extremely good that practically anyone may learn about and try these "cell salts" at home for themselves and their immediate family.  More information on the salts and their specific health applications will be found in Dr. Schuessler's Biochemistry by J.B. Chapman, M.D. (London: New Era Labs, 1973).  Dr. Chapman's excellent book indicates some keynote symptoms for the cell salts, of which the following is a summary:

The Twelve Salts and Some of Their Keynote Symptoms

Although I think that J. B. Chapman's DR. SCHUESSLER'S BIOCHEMISTRY  (London: New Era, 1973) is the easiest and best book on the subject, The Biochemic Handbook (St. Louis: Formur) is another readily available paperback guide to specific uses of the Schuessler cell salts. Either this book or Dr. Chapman's will serve you well. Homeopathic pharmacies, suppliers and websites may carry them, along with other standard works on homeopathy.

MORE ON THE SCHUESSLER CELL SALTS 
 Twelve cell salts were recognized and categorized by a German biochemist William H. Schuessler in 1873.  He found that there are certain essential minerals that the body requires, in proper balance, in all of its cells.  An imbalance or a lack of any of these minerals may lead to disease in the tissues so lacking. Providing the missing minerals to the tissues corrects that imbalance, and so eliminates the illness.  This seemingly simple system of cure has great practical application in health.  Using only a small number of harmless combinations (or "salts") of these minerals, it is possible for any individual to treat him- or herself simply and effectively for a great variety of everyday minor ailments. It is significant that such cell-salt treatment is replenishing something the body lacks and wants, as opposed to merely suppressing illness with drugs and other chemicals.  Drugs do not provide missing cell nutrients, but drugs do add harmful chemicals to the body which ultimately compound the problem.  The Schuessler cell salts may be seen as special raw materials for the body, which you need more of if you run out of what you normally have.

 A "salt" is any type of readily dissolvable mineral combination, not just table salt. Many people take dietary iron supplements, but few would chew on a rusty nail for an iron source. The same is true with the Schuessler minerals: the potassium, silicon, iron, phosphate or other substance must be in a special potentiation to be most useable to the body. Most Schuessler cell salts are in a homeopathic potency, which uses minute quantities of a substance with great effect. The potentiation process multiplies the essential energy of a substance while at the same time decreasing the dosage amount.  The subtlety, harmlessness and effectiveness of such preparations have been clinically proven for well over two hundred years, since the beginnings of homeopathic treatment in the 18th century. 

 Schuessler cell salts (also called "biochemic cell salts") are a non-prescription item and are available directly from any homeopathic pharmacy.  Because of the medical profession's long-standing opposition to homeopathic remedies, it is not certain that your local drug store will even know what "cell salts" are, let alone stock them. Most health food stores do carry them. Schuessler remedies are commonly in a "6X" homeopathic potency.  The "X" refers to the Roman numeral 10; 6x is one part in ten, repeated six times. The cost of the mineral tablets is very moderate, usually $5 to $8 per bottle of 250 or more. Addresses of homeopathic pharmacists may be obtained by using any an internet search engine.
