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.
Magnesium phosphoricum is antispasmodic. This cell salt compound makes up the white matter of muscles and nerves, and can therefore reduce spasmodic darting pains in sciatica and neuralgia as well as the violent pain of menstrual and muscle cramps.
Cell salts work well together when combined. For example, Kali phos (works primarily on the gray nerve fibers) and Mag phos (works primarily on the white nerve fibers) function most optimally when combined together in the restoration of nerve and brain cells. Mag phos and Calc phos work best when taken together in the treatment of cramping pain. And since Mag phos also helps harden dental enamel, it is often combined with Calc fluor, Calc phos, and/or Silicea for delayed dentition in children (teeth are erupting too slowly or late), or post-dental drilling or surgery. Finally, in depleted patients such as long-term vegans, it can be used initially in conjunction with Calc phos and Kali phos, as a gentle mineral supplement to restore energy and begin the regeneration of the body’s nerves and muscles.
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.
