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.
Kali phosphoricum, or potassium phosphate, is a nerve nutrient. It is thus commonly prescribed as a natural tranquilizer to help restore and regenerate the nervous system in exhausted students (“brain fog”), overworked executives, and all individuals who have experienced chronic stress and anxiety, injury, or grief. Since it us a necessary component of nervous tissue, it is also used in the treatment of shingles as well as other inflammatory skin conditions. It has additionally been prescribed to treat acute conditions such as shock and sudden blood loss from injuries.
Cell salts work well together when combined. For example, Ferrum phos and Kali phos have been taken together to improve the oxygen circulation in the body and reduce anemic conditions. Further, Kali phos and Mag phos work well together in most fully restoring nerve cells to optimal functioning, with the addition of Kali mur in some cases as well.
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.
