Cell Salts
A "salt" is any type of readily dissolvable mineral combination, not just table salt. Dr. Schüssler, a German doctor of the 19th century, was investigating various causes of illness. During his studies, the scientific work of Dr. Virchow, who discovered that the body is constructed of millions of cells, inspired Dr. Schüssler to figure out a way to treat disease by bringing the cells back into mineral balance so they could function properly.
It was also noted that when a cell is completely incinerated only 12 individual minerals make up the ash. Later, this became known as biochemical cell salts. Most minerals are taken in a concentrated form, therefore, they cannot find their way to the single cells. Dr. Schüssler adapted the idea of diluting a substance similar to how it is done in homeopathy and applying it to the body.
Because the mineral salts work inside the cells, they are called "cell salts" or "tissue salts". As this is chemistry inside the biological body, they are sometimes called "biochemical cell salts". Treatment with the cell salts by Dr. Schüssler is interpreted differently by his followers.
Some see the cell salts as a stimulation therapy and others as a substitution method. These homeopathically made biochemical cell salts found in the body naturally are not to be confused with homeopathic remedies. That is the method of treating symptoms with elements mostly foreign to the body that could produce a similar symptom reaction in the body in higher doses. You will find common uses of each salt below, however, supplied literature will render a more in-depth view.
Calcium Sulphate is in our skin cells and our blood primarily to prevent and minimize suppuration (pus formation and mucus accumulation) and disintegration of cells.
Calcium Sulphate Calcarea Sulph. The man who established the Cell Salts and his Biochemical Theory, Dr. W. H. Schuessler, discovered this remedy. Its source, calcium sulphate is in our skin cells and blood primarily to prevent/minimize suppuration (pus formation and mucus accumulation) and disintegration of cells. Calcium sulphate deficiency leads to slow moving, stagnant colds, and mucus conditions, as well as weak skin conditions. Thus the remedy, Calc sulph helps us clean out a variety of skin and mucus-related symptoms.
Growth spurts, study headaches, and simple anemia are just the beginning of what this remedy can help growing children overcome.
Calcium Phosphate Calcarea Phos. Growth spurts, study headaches, and simple anemia are just the beginning of what this remedy can help growing children overcome. Yet we can all use its strengthening support from time to time. As the cellular building block of the cell salt remedies, Calc phos aids many conditions with structural stress, growth or weakness.
Bioplasma is for cellular recovery. It is a combination of all 12 biochemical cell salts in one remedy. It is delivered 6x the strength, which is optimal for the combination. Bioplasma should be used to replenish all associated bodily mineral levels.

While Bioplasma is a great general remedy, you should isolate specific cell salt deficiencies using the provided charts* for maximum benefit.
This is the substance most involved in cell density and water distribution/elimination, sodium sulphate is a critical part of our liver, kidney, and cleansing systems.
This is the substance most involved in cell density and water distribution/elimination, sodium sulphate is a critical part of our liver, kidney and cleansing systems. While digestive symptoms are its forté, sodium sulphate’s cell salt, Nat sulph, has many useful respiratory, pain and mental/emotional applications. Many famous Spa’s owe much of their reputation to this remedy’s source, sodium sulphate.
As defined in Scheussler’s Biochemistry, this cell salt’s primary role in the body is to decompose acids. Thus its remedy, Nat phos, offers an extremely safe way to treat a range of acid-related conditions in all ages and stages of life.
The sodium phosphate in our digestive tracts breaks down stomach acids and regulates bile. When overwhelmed by fatty, bitter or sugar-filled foods and beverages, including alcohol, the body cannot make enough sodium phosphate to handle all the stomach acids needed for digestion. As a result, we get acid symptoms like heartburn, diarrhea, gas, sour belching, and a yellow coating on the back of the tongue. In babies, Nat phos is a very natural gentle way to relieve colic, sour vomiting, and sour smelling green diarrhea. In children, Nat phos can ease the crash and headaches of sugar highs. As a safe source for heartburn relief during pregnancy, Nat phos is irreplaceable. Top of the head headaches and sick headaches with sour vomiting find relief in it whether due to morning sickness, dietary excesses or illness.
