Dr Schuessler focussed on 12 minerals in the body and he called them tissue salts. His theory was that many illnesses could be caused by an imbalance of minerals in the cells and so wanted to find a way to deliver minerals homoeopathically, as he felt these had absorption benefits over minerals available at the time.
There were originally just 12 cell salts, but combinations were quickly developed to assist with various health complaints. The original 12 are:
- Calc Fluor
- Calc Phos
- Calc Sulph
- Ferr Phos
- Kali Mur
- Kali Phos
- Kali Sulph
- Mag Phos
- Nat Mur
- Nat Phos
- Nat Sulph
