(NaturalNews) Tissue salts, also known as cell salts, are minerals - the same minerals that are found in the earth`s rocks and soil. Gentle, safe and non-toxic, tissue salts can be bought in pill form from virtually any pharmacy or health store and can provide the help the body needs in order to fight colds and flu.

Tissue Salts Explained

Dr. Schuessler, a 19th century German physician, discovered that the twelve of the inorganic salts found in the human body have specific physiologic functions. In short, he maintained that the inorganic mineral substances that constitute our planet earth are the complete basis of the composition of our body`s bone and blood, organs and muscles and he found that a cell salt deficiency or imbalance generally resulted in loss of health.

"Tissue salts are found in our food, or should be, when grown organically in mineral-rich soil. Modern-day agricultural practice, however, has leached soil of its life-sustaining minerals and promoted instead chemical fertilizers". Margaret Roberts, Tissue Salts for Healthy Living

Tissue salts are made by grinding minerals in lactose over six attenuations, a process called trituration. The result is a pill that is easily absorbed, containing a minute amount of a specific mineral salt.

Best Tissue Salts for Colds

To relieve the congestion, headaches and general symptoms of a common head cold, dissolve 2 each of the following tissue salts under the tongue and hourly thereafter until symptoms subside.

Ferrum Phos tablets (tissue salt no.4) to treat throbbing headaches, congestion, sore throat, runny nose and coughs.
Kali Mur (no. 5) to treat wheezing, aches, sinusitis, frequent common colds.
Kali Sulph (no. 7) to relieve symptoms of blocked nose and a sinus headache.

Best Tissue Salts for Flu

In addition to the above tissue salts, add the same dosage of Silica (tissue salt no. 12) to help heal infections and frequent bouts of flu.

If deciding to take tissue salts, it is not necessary to consult a homeopathic professional unless conditions are chronic, such as recurring throat infections or a history of worsening health problems. If a sick individual is already taking a remedy prescribed by a homeopath, however, taking another remedy out of sequence might interfere with or slow down treatment, according to qualified homeopathic practitioner, Joan Macdonald.

Food Sources for the above Tissue Salts

Herbs and foods containing Ferrum Phos include celery, horseradish, spinach, lentils, radishes, onions, walnuts, strawberries, apples, lettuce and nettle tops.

Herbs and foods that contain Kali Mur include yarrow, ginger, fennel, basil, borage and sage, green beans, carrots, beetroot, cauliflower, asparagus, peaches, apricots, pineapples lemons and plums.

Herbs and foods that contain Kali Sulph include watercress, parsley, linseed, mustard, melissa, oats, lettuce, endives, chicory, almonds, rye and wholegrain bread.

Herbs and foods rich in Silica include dandelion, horsetail, comfrey, maize, barley, oats, buckwheat, rice, soya beans, oranges, guavas and pomegranates.
