    12 Biochemic Tissue Cell Salts Schuessler Cell Salts

    Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler, a noted German biochemist and homeopath, created the biochemic system. He identified twelve biochemic minerals present in every cell of the human body. A correct balance of these minerals must be maintained for the proper functioning of body tissues. Dr. Schuessler believed that a deficiency in any one mineral would lead to a disturbance in the cell life where the deficiency occurred. When there is a perturbation of cell life, a favorable environment for bacterial growth and illness is created. Health problems arise when there is a deficiency in any of these salts.

    Dr. Schuessler's biochemic salts are also known as tissue salts or cell salts. These salts are prescribed in low decimal potency to repair deficiencies at the cellular level. Tissue salts are prepared according to homeopathic principles and are used to supply the body with the missing cell nutrients.

    Tissue salts come in chewable, tablet format where lactose (milk sugar) is the main ingredient. Therefore, they are not recommended for anyone who is lactose intolerance.

    12 Biochemic Tissue Salts / Schuessler Cell Salts

    1.  Calcarea fluorica (calcium fluoride)

    Calc fluor is called the elasticity mineral. It is found in the cells of the bone, enamel of the teeth, and in the fibers of the skin. It is generally indicated for relaxed muscle tissue.

    2. Calcarea phosphorica (calcium phosphate)

    Calc phos is called the cell mineral. This tissue salt is needed for the formation of new cells, especially bone cells.

    3. Calcarea sulphurica (calcium sulphate)

    Calc sulph detoxifies the blood. This tissue salt is generally used in suppurating conditions.

    4. Ferrum phosphoricum (iron phosphate)

    Ferrum phos is present in the composition of hemoglobin. This tissue salt has the ability to draw oxygen from inhaled air and carry it to the blood.

    5. Kalium muriaticum (potassium chloride)

    Kali mur is well indicated for catarrh conditions and glandular swelling.

     6. Kalium phosphoricum (potassium phosphate)

    Kali phos is a nerve cell mineral. This tissue salt is indicated in cases of weak, impatient, and emotional individuals.

    7. Kalium sulfuricum (potassium sulphate)

    Kali sulph is similar to Ferrum phos. It helps carry oxygen to the blood. It is present in all cells that contain iron. This tissue salt is well indicated for skin conditions.

    8. Natrum muriaticum (sodium chloride)

    Nat mur has affinity with water distribution. It ensures a balance of moisture throughout the organism.This tissue salt is indicated in conditions where too much water or dryness appears in the system.

    9. Natrum phosphorica (sodium phosphate)

    Nat phos is an essential salt for the digestive tract. It neutralizes acids and helps with the assimilation of fats and other nutrients. This tissue salt is well indicated for symptoms of hyper acidity.

    10. Natrum sulphuricum (sodium chloride)

    Nat sulph helps excrete excessive water from the system.

    12. Silicea

    Silicea is found in the hair, skin, nails, and connective tissues. This tissue salt is well indicated for pus formation and suppuration.

Gout is an inflammation of the joints that affects more than half a millions Pakistanis each year. People with gout have intense pain and swelling in their joints. If not treated gout attackes can become increasingly frequent and painful. With proper treatment gout can be stopped from getting worse and the pain can be managed.

Joints & Arthritis:
  • The human body has 206 bones that give it shape and strength. The place where 2 bones meet is called a join.
  • At the joints the bones are covered by tissue called cartilage.
  • Joints have a clear fluid in them called synovial fluid. This fluid lubricates the joints just like oil lubricates the eninge of a car. The synovial fluid allows the joint to move smoothly with very little friction. When the tissues of a joint are injured or affected by a disease they may swell and become a red and hot causing pain. This is known as joint inflammation or arthritis.
  • There are more than 100 differnt types of arthritis. Gout is a type of arthritis it affects 1 out of every 20 patients who have arthritis.
  • Gout results from crystals of a substance called uric acid that deposit in the joints. The next section explains what uric acid is and how it causes gout.
Purine is a chemical compound that is in all the cells of the body. As cells divide and multiply the body continually breaks down purine and reuses its components to make new cells. Extra purine is secreted out of the body in the urine in the form of uric acid, another chemical compound. At times there mya be abnormally high levels of uric acid in the blood. This condition is called "hyperuricemia."

When there is a lot of uric acid in the body it will form crystals. This is similar to wha6t happens with salt as it is poured into a cup of water. First the salt dossolves and cannot bee seen but if more salt is added salt crystles can be seen forming and falling to the bottom of the cup. Under a microscope crystals of uric acid are sharp and pointy and look like little needles. In some people uric acid crystals deposit in the joints. Uric acid crystals may also deposit under the skin forming a lump that can sometimes be felt on the outside of the body. This is called a "tophus."

The immune system the body's defense against sickness realizes that the crystals should not be there and starts attacking them. This is what causes joint pain, swelling, and tenderness when a person has gout. Extra uric acid may also deposit in the kidneys and causes kidney stones.

Risk Factors:
Some people have more risk than others of developing high levels of uric acid which leads to gout. INherited diseases can cause high levels of uric acid; 6 to 18% of patients with gout have a family history of gout. Eating too many foods that are rich in purine can cause the body to produce more uric acid. Foods that have a lot of purine include shellfish and organ meats, such as liver, kidney, and brain. Dried beans, peas and anchovies are also high in purines. Being overweight increases the risk of developing gout. Some medications increase the risk of hyperuricemia, or high levels of uric acid.

Water pills, called diuretics, interfere with the kidneys ability to excrete uric acid from the blood. This causes higher levels of uric acid in the blood. Diuretics are givend to patients to treat high blood pressure and heart disease.
Other medications which are given to patients aspirin can also increase the levels of uric acid in the blood.

Symptoms & Stages:
Gout affects about 840 out of every 100,000 people. Men are slightly more likely to be affected by it than women.

The first symptoms of gout are usually noticed in the early 40s. High levels of uric acid alone usually do not produce symptoms. The symptoms of gout start when uric acid crystals begin depositing in the tissues of the body, under the skin, in the joints, and in the kidneys. In the many gout patients the first symptom is pain, redness, swelling, and tenderness in the big toe. This condition is called "podagra." At one point or another podagra affects 3 out of every 4 patients who have gout.

Joints that are frequently affected by gout include:
  • Ankle
  • Heels
  • Knees
  • Wrists
  • Fingers
  • Elbow

Attacks of inflammation in the joints due to gout usually last for a few days and improve on their own. As times goes by gout attackes may become more frequent and may last longer requiring threatment. if gout is not treated it can become disabling and crippling. However most aptients do not reach this stage because it is typically discovered and treated early. This last stage is known as tophaceous gout. The joints can be permanently damaged and similarly the kidneys can also be irreversibly affected.

After taking a detailed medical case history and doing a thorough physical examination the homeopath may request a blood test to check the level of uric acid in your blood. It is important to note that most people with hyperuricemia do not develop the arthritis symptoms of gout, such as swelling, redness, pain, and tenderness.

Gout is treated with homeopathic classical medications that are:

  • RElieve the pain of gout attacks
  • Decrease joint inflammation
  • Decrease the level of uric acid in the blood

There are many goals for the treatment of gout. The most important goal is to cure the severe pain of gout attackes. DrAamir's homeopathic treatment of gout also aims at cure more attacks and cure the formation of new tophi and kidney stones.

Preventing Gout:
Takin steps to prevent gout attacks is as important as taking homeopathic medication to cure it. The following are 5 tips for preventing gout.

  • Drink a lot of water and fluids. This helps to flush out uric acid and keeps it from depositing in the tissues.
  • Reduce weight by eating a little less and getting exercise. Do this under the supervision of a homeopath becuase a very rapid loss of weight could in some cases worsen gout.
  • Avoid eating food that is high in purines such as Liver, Brain, and Kidneys.
  • Do not drink alcohol.
  • Take homeopathic treatment to reduce the level of uric acid in your blood.
During a gout attack resting and elevating the inflamed join can relieve the pain. Applying an ice pack to the inflamed joint helps to reduce the pain also.


Homeopathy is an amazingly powerful tool to eliminate cancer if used judiciously and in combination with conventional allopathic treatment. Allopathic treatment aims at killing the tumor or cancer cells while homeopathy treatment side by side raises the vitality of the patient empowering the body to heal the tumor or cancer. It also prevents the recurrence of tumor or cancer. Many of my cases have seen reversal of tumors or cancers with complete recovery by the patient. The aim of homeopathic treatment is healing at all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Conventional treatment of cancer or tumor involves chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy which are associated with side effects. Side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, mouth sores or dryness, hair loss, diarrhea, difficulty swallowing and increased susceptibility to infections. Homeopathy helps in curbing side effects during conventional treatment of cancer or tumor.
Treating tumors or cancers with homeopathy is a systematic process which is best done by an experienced and professional homeopath. High level of skill is required to treat cases of tumors or cancers. Choosing the right homeopath can make all the difference for cancer treatment. Homeopathic treatment is extremely safe and without any side effects. In most of the tumor or cancer cases it gives best results when used along with other conventional therapies in a synergistic approach. Diagnostic tests are also an important part of homeopathic treatment to know the progress in each case of tumor or cancer. For treating tumor or cancer we use a number of different methods in every case: 
Firstly, we choose homeopathic medicines which would directly affect the tumor or cancer. This is done by selecting the remedies which cover the local symptom picture of the tumor or cancer itself. Some other symptoms like thirst, bowel movements, perspiration and so on are all considered while selecting the remedies. The main aim of this approach is targeting the tumor or cancer and reversing its growth.
Secondly, we detoxify the body by giving drainage remedies. These remedies are selected after careful analysis of a particular case. These medicines increase drainage of harmful substances from the body through liver, kidneys, urinary tract, skin and lymphatic system. This helps in strengthening the body of the patient which in turns leads to speedier recovery with decreasing tumor or cancer size.
Thirdly, we also aim at choosing the constitutional homeopathic remedy of the patient. This is done by taking into account his physical, mental, emotional and spiritual symptoms and then selecting the appropriate homeopathic medicine. The best selecting constitutional homeopathic remedy increases the overall vitality of the patient and thus helps in decreasing the size of the tumor or cancer and ultimately eliminating the growth and preventing further recurrence of the tumor or cancer. The constitutional homeopathy approach also helps in drainage and detoxification of the body.

Homeopathic treatment of cancer or tumor has the following benefits:

  • Reversing the growth of the tumor or cancer.
  • Improvement in quality of life.
  • Relief in physical and emotional stress, anxiety, isolation and depression.
  • Gives the patients a sense of control over their illness and the opportunity to play a role in their own care.
  • Alleviates side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Relieves pain, nausea and vomiting associated with cancer.
  • Reccurence of cancer or tumor is prevented.
