What are cell salts made of? 

In the 19th Century, a German doctor, Dr Schuessler, discovered that the human cell is made up of 12 minerals which form the basic constituents of our bones, blood, muscles and organs.  He created a biochemical system of 12 cell (or tissue) salts which are composed of minute traces of these minerals in a lactose tablet.  They are homeopathically prepared, usually in a 6x potency. They dissolve easily in the mouth and can be absorbed quickly through the oral mucus membranes, entering the bloodstream. 

How to take cell salts

Take three tablets three times daily to ameliorate an ACUTE situation. 

Repeat dose depending on severity of symptoms:

Intense: every ½ hour (severe pain, high fever) for up to 10 doses

Medium: every 2,3 hours (bad cough, bearable pain) for up to 10 doses

Mild: every 4 to 6 hours (can carry on with other things) for up to 5 days

Take three tablets twice daily over a month or two to address a CHRONIC problem. 

For either regime, take M-F, with weekends off.
