Infertility is often caused by poor mineral absorption and acidic pH levels in both partners. Biochemic cell salts can help absorb the minerals your body needs to conceive.
Dr. Schuessler’s Theory
Biochemic cell salts or biochemic tissues salts were discovered in the nineteenth century by Dr. Schuessler – a medical doctor and homeopath. His research indicated that a person’s natural state of health will enable them to heal itself by restoring the underlying imbalance caused by any biochemical imbalance. There are twelve main mineral compounds orchestrating your health at the subterranean level.
Schuessler discovered that when there is a deficiency of one or more of these twelve mineral, such as calcium, sodium, potassium or iron in the body, symptoms and abnormal conditions can result.
Our Modern Diet
The minerals in your diet should, ideally, come from organically grown plant foods and should be eaten in their natural state. Unfortunately, due to incorrect treatment of the soil, shipping conditions and added chemicals, the mineral content of fruits and vegetables that you find at most grocery stores is very poor.
Industrial farming is not sufficiently replenishing soils depleted of essential minerals, and due to depletion, we often have to take it in our own hands to supplement what we’re not getting naturally through foods. Biochemic cell salts (also called Biochemic Tissue Salts) such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, etc. need to be bioavailable in the body. They’re needed for healthy metabolic functioning, body growth and repair as well as creating conditions ripe for conception.
Furthermore, our everyday cooking methods can also reduce how much nutrition we’re able to derive from our foods. Most people don’t know that it’s best to eat 80% of their foods in their raw form. Most modern folk are actually starving from lack of nutrition and important minerals even though they have plenty to eat.
Biochemic Salts Increase The Absorption of Body Minerals
Biochemic cell salts are also called biochemic tissue salts, or simply tissue salts. Some practitioners call them Schuessler salts. We typically recommend Hyland’s Bio XII Tissue Salts to our patients.
They can be bought at many holistic pharmacies or purchased online. The recommendation is to take 3-4 of the tiny, chewable, lactose discs 2-3 times per day. Simply follow the directions on the bottle.
Tissue salts are designed to address mineral deficiencies by helping the body to absorb free-floating minerals, which are otherwise not being absorbed. Even if you are taking a high quality mineral supplement, your body may still not assimilate those minerals efficiently.
The role of biochemic cell salts is to stimulate the cells to uptake the necessary inorganic mineral salts from your healthy diet of whole foods. Fruit, vegetables and meats are your best choices while limiting simple carbohydrates, coffee, alcohol and sugars. Some allopathic drugs may also inhibit absorption of minerals.
Increasing Your Chances of Getting Pregnant
Difficulty getting pregnant can be associated with lack of minerals the body needs. Biochemic cell salts are good for everyone, but they are especially important during the preconception period.
They are safe and effective for women during menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation, when the need of important minerals for the body increases.
Infants and children can also benefit from cell salts to ensure proper development of bones, teeth, blood cells, nerves and muscles.
What are The Twelve Tissue Salts?
The twelve tissue salts are: Calc Phos, Calc Fluor, Calc Sulph, Mag Phos, Ferr Phos, Kali Phos, Kali Mur, Kali Sulph, Nat Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur, Silica.
These biochemic tissue salts are often confused with homeopathic products, but they are actually part of the biochemic system of medicine, a branch of homeopathy.
Homeopathic medicine is based on the treatment of symptoms using the “law of similars,” while biochemic salts are recommended on the basis of mineral imbalances or deficiencies due to metabolic dysfunction; or the law of opposites. When this balance is not present, the body functions can be compromised.
With proper supplementation of Schuessler’s Tissue Salts, you will increase your chances of becoming pregnant easily and naturally.
