Last week I introduced you to the first two of Schuessler’s Cell Salts, Calcarea Fluorica and Calcarea Phosphorica. I also told you a little bit about the wonderful world of matter. We are made up of matter. We eat matter. Therefore, the type of matter we eat is so important if we actually want to nourish our bodies. Our bodies are made of the same matter that is growing in a healthy field and we need this “real” food to stay healthy and strong.
The Cell salts are the 12 Elements that make up the solid matter of the human body. These are the solid elements that God used when He created man.
The wonderful thing about the Cell Salts is that we can use them homeopathically to trigger the body into balancing itself when we get out of balance from stress, lack of sleep, etc. We can use these cell salts, on top of proper nutrition, to help bring our bodies back into balance.
The next two Cell Salts I would like to tell you about are:
#3 Calcarea Sulphurica (Sulphate of lime)- Calc. Sulph. In nature occurs as gypsum, alabaster, selenite or commercially known as “plaster of Paris”. Present in connective tissue and in liver cells. Used for cellular regeneration; infection causing pus; pimples, sore throats, colds, pancreatic, liver and kidney disturbances; frontal headaches with nausea; excessive sensitivity of nerves as well as cravings for fruit and acids.
#4 Ferrum Phosphoricum (Phosphate of Iron)- Ferrum Phos. is found in all cells of the body but primarily in the hemoglobin of red blood cells and in the muscle cells of the blood and lymph vessels and in hair cells. Used for acute phases of disease. Increases body development; regulates the bowels; improves the appetite and relieves debility and listlessness. Also used in vomiting of food and blood; nosebleeds; teething fever; inflamed hemorrhoids; retention of urine in children; excessive menses; congestion, inflammatory pain in general, high temperatures, increased heart rates, insomnia and congestive headaches.
We need all of the minerals of our body to be balanced and in proper proportion. At any given time, the symptoms of imbalance occur. The corresponding cell salt taken in an as needed fashion will once again bring balance. Even a healthy body can use the help of the cell salts on occasion. Always remember though, to be getting your proper nutrition through your Food!
Join me again next week, as we explore more about the wonderful world of Cell Salts!
