Tissue salts were first invented  more than 100 years ago by Dr Schuessier, a German doctor.  He stated that poor health was caused by the imbalance in the bodies  12 vital tissue cell salts.  Dr Schuessier believed that these imbalances could be corrected by homoeopathically prepared, small doses of each salt.

Dr Schuessler’s Tissue Salts are also called biochemical Salts or cells salts. They are made up of the 12 essential minerals which the body needs to maintain good health and to repair itself.  The salts are homeopathic and are prepared in 6x potencies, making them easy to absorb and gentle on the body.  Therefore they can be used in pregnancy and also for the whole family.  Pets can also use them.
