What Are Tissue Salts?
Tissue Salts are essential minerals to life. They are also called Biochemic Cell Salts or Cell Salts.
These twelve Tissue Salts are found in your body; and so are critical for maintaining good health. Tissue salts aim to treat ailments by correcting imbalances by nourishing cellular deficiencies. This helps the body to restore itself to health. You may have been prescribed these along with your Acupuncture treatment.
They originate from homeopathic medicine. As small tablets, it is easy to dissolve them on or under the tongue for easy absorption into the bloodstream. Homeopathic treatment encourages your body to activate its own defences to treat the root cause of the problem.

Dosage & How To Take Tissue Salts
Adults: For prevention or treatment of a chronic symptom, take 2 tablets dissolved in the directly mouth 3-4 times daily. In acute cases one takes a tablet every 5 minutes, until the condition is better, but not more than a whole day. After this high intake, switch to the normal dose.
Children up to six years can suck I to 2 tab¬lets three times daily as a general treatment dose. In acute situations/discomfort, children can take a dose every one to two hours, and reduce to 3 – 4 times daily as soon as the condition gets better. You can also dissolve them in water. Ideally 3-4 tables to 1.5L for adults.
N.B – never touch the salts with your hand, pour them into the cap of the lid and then place into your mouth as they are homeopathic and should not be touched.
Dissolve in the mouth (Dry method)
It is important, that the cell salts are assimilated by the oral mucosa, directly into the blood stream. Therefore you should let them dissolve in the mouth, or suck on them like a lolly. The lactose base of the tablets dissolves quickly and has a sweet flavour.
The benefit is that most people, especially children, enjoy the mild and sweet taste of the tablets. Take them 15 minutes before or after food. After taking the tablets it is best to drink one glass of fresh water, so that the body has enough water to be able to detoxify.
Water Trinking Method
You can also use the tissue salts in water. For this purpose you can dissolve your daily dosage in a bottle of drinking water. Drink from this bottle all day through in small sips. This method may work also for people who have problems with lactose, because the cell salts are diluted in water.
