(NaturalNews) In these rapidly changing times, people are becoming more and more independent. Now, they are asking why. No longer do people put all their trust in authority figures. Now they are looking for alternative options to mainstream thinking. They are taking more control of their health and that of their family's. Learning to use Schuessler's tissue salts is a wonderful start to home prescribing.
For the health conscious, a quality, healthy and natural diet is essential as a preventative measure. However, many ailments need more in-depth treatment. Other problems can arise from an unresolved shock, fright or trauma of some kind.
Homeopathic treatment has great ability to treat and cure deeply unresolved issues. Even those that go back generations. Because homeopathy treats the person, not the disease, there is no limit to what it can achieve, in the right hands.
Homeopathy is also a very flexible modality of natural health care. The deep work it is so capable of achieving, the treatment of chronic disease, is best left to a competent professional homeopath.
However, you can learn to use some of the common remedies for acute ailments yourself. This does involve some measure of re-programming your way of thinking, as the homeopathic treatment of disease is totally different from mainstream medicine. This can be easy for those who are adept at change, but challenging for those who are resistant to change.
Dr Schuessler was a 19th century German homeopath cum doctor who wanted to empower the people. He devised a simple system of medicine
, which anyone could learn. His system is known as biochemistry, the biochemic treatment of disease, cell salts or tissue salts.
In a nutshell, he worked out that there are just 12 minerals, mostly salts, that the body needs in perfect balance to survive in a healthy way. A deficiency in any one of these will cause a certain type of illness. Taking the appropriate tissue salt will restore this balance.
Dr Schuessler's system of medicine is an easy way to introduce yourself to homeopathic home
prescribing. The medicines work partly in a material way, helping to address any nutritional deficiency. But it also works in an energetic way, restoring balance, so the deficiency doesn't remain.
A great example is iron. Anaemia, often caused by an iron deficiency, is not uncommon. Yet iron is a commonly occurring mineral in most soils. So iron deficiency is more to do with your inability to absorb it, than a deficiency in your diet. By taking the tissue salt
Ferrum phos, not only are you replenishing iron to your cells materially, but you are also restoring the imbalance which caused it.
This is far more healthy than taking isolated and synthetic iron supplements, which can cause further problems, including a deficiency in copper.
This system works as well on animals as it does on people.
The Schuessler system in no way replaces homeopathic treatment. But it is a great way to ease yourself into this wonderful modality of natural health
