[ Back to Biochemic Remedies Theory ]

Also known as the Tissue remedies or Schussler's tissue salt remedies.

This is a system of medicine evolved by Dr.Schussler in 1873. Schussler was a homeopath who propounded the theory that disease is caused by the insufficiency of organic salts in the tissues/cells of the body and that the supply of these deficient salt(s) cures diseases.

Schussler identified 12 homeopathic medicines as the biochemic remedies. These twelve basic salts are : 

1) Calcarea fluor (Calcium fluoride)

2) Calcium phosphorica (Calcium phosphate)

3) Calcium sulphate

4) Ferrum phosphorica (Iron phosphate)

5) Kali muriaticum (Potassium chloride)

6) Kali phosphorica (Potassium phosphate)

7) Kali sulphurica (Potassium sulphate)

8) Magnesia Phosphorica (Magnesium phosphate)

9) Natrum muriaticum (Sodium chloride)

10) Natrum sulphuricum(Glauber's salt - Sodium sulphate)

11) Natrum phosphoricum (Sodium phosphate) 

12) Silicea. 
These medicines given in a low potency 1x,2x,6x,12,x,30x could serve as a healing agent.
