The body requires certain essential minerals to function optimally. Based on this physiological fact the German biochemist William H. Schuessler in 1873 originated cell salt supplements, also called tissue salts. (“Salt” refers to any type of readily dissolvable mineral compound, not just sodium chloride or table salt.) Dr. Schuessler found that a deficiency in these minerals could lead to disease and dysfunction in the body, and that supplementation with cell salts could often restore health.
Dr. Schuessler’s students included renowned homeopaths such as Dr. Constantine Hering of Philadelphia and H.C.G. Luyties of St. Louis. The Luyties brand, named after this famous American homeopath, is the brand that tests the best using energetic testing (Matrix Reflex Testing, or MRT). Luyties cell salts are made with lactose, not magnesium stearate – a toxic trans fat – that is often used as an excipient by other cell salt companies.
The 6X potency tests superiorly clinically and energetically for me, as well as for other colleagues who utilize energetic testing, including Dr. Michael Adams of Toronto. It should be noted that cell salts are not succussed and are thus not strictly homeopathic. Therefore, cell salts do not antidote other homeopathic remedies.
Calcarea fluorica is the main mineral compound found in tooth enamel. It is thus recommended after dental drilling to support the regeneration of enamel as well as in patients with deficient development of enamel. It is also prescribed to reduce dental cavities and for delayed dentition in children (teeth are erupting too slowly or late). Other indications for the supplementation of Calc fluor are dry skin with cracks in the palms of the hands or lips, hemorrhoids, and for joint pain. (Note that calcium fluoride is non-toxic and a mineral compound that is naturally found in the body. In contrast, sodium fluoride is toxic and added to conventional toothpastes and given to patients in non-biological dentists’ offices.)
Cell salts work well together when combined. For example, for delayed dentition in children (teeth are erupting too slowly or late), Calc fluor, Calc phos, and Silicea are often prescribed together. And since Mag phos also helps harden dental enamel, it is often combined with Calc fluor, Calc phos, and/or Silicea post-dental drilling or surgery.
Note that unlike many other brands, these lactose-based Luyties cell salts do not contain magnesium stearate—a toxic and indigestible trans fat.
Dosage: 4 tablets dissolved under the tongue 1 to 3 times a day or as directed by your health care practitioner, at least 10 minutes away from food. Children typically need ½ this dosage.
