Tissue salts (cell salts) are homeopathically prepared minerals that play a critical role in our health. There are 12 in total. They were first developed by a German doctor named Wilhelm Schüessler, who studied ash residue as a means of better understanding the human body. In the ash he found 12 minerals and discovered that these minerals were the foundation for the body structure and were also essential for proper operation of all tissues and organs.
Dr. Schüessler discovered that ill-health was caused by an imbalance of these tissue salts in the cells of our body. In fact, if this balance is upset, there can be a change in the state of immunity and resistance to microbes. Nowadays, modern lifestyle involving stress, poor nutrition, processed food, electro-pollution, environmental toxins, exposure to heavy metals, and contaminated drinking water results in many children becoming easily depleted.
From a preventative perspective, it’s important to ensure tissue salts are well balanced in the body. In an acute situation, they are extremely helpful at restoring balance and helping the body bring itself back into a state of health.
Safe for use in pregnancy and breastfeeding, and easy to administer to babies.
Kalium Muriaticum (Kali Mur) is the remedy to consider when the discharge becomes white or opaque (especially from the nose and throat, although you may also notice it on the tongue).

Illness is an opportunity for the immune system to learn and grow. When illness strikes, the faster we start to support the immune system with the tools it needs to heal, the faster the child/adult will recover, and the less likelihood of the illness progressing to something more serious that requires medication such as antibiotics. We recommend having a copy of this helpful guide as it walks you through how to use homeopathics and tissue salts during acute illness. Dosing is provided in the guide for newborns up to adulthood.
