Minerals, like vitamins are natural elements essential for our general mental and physical health. Minerals are an intrinsic constituent of every living cell of our bodies. In the bones, teeth, muscles, soft fleshy tissues, blood and nerve cells, Minerals help maintain body processes and perform a multitude of purposes. However, the various minerals in the body are closely integrated with one another, and often one mineral deficiency will disturb and retard the functions of the other minerals. This can quite easily result in general ill health, a lack of energy and muscular and mental deterioration. Up until recently, fresh natural foods were your guarantee of receiving all necessary minerals in a balanced intake.
Unfortunately, any refinement, processing, extraction, or addition (salt, sugar, chemicals, preservatives, etc.) to food destroys the natural mineral combination. This, together with modern agricultural methods, can mean that many plants we consume may be severely lacking in essential mineral elements.
When a specific mineral deficiency is suspected, the diet may be supplemented with natural mineral food supplements. These products provide a significant support for a healthy life, if the diet is inadequate.
BIOCHEMIC MINERAL SALTS
In the early nineteenth Century, Doctor W.H. Schuessler – noted German physiological chemist and physicist, identified 12 “tissue salts“, which he located in every human cell. These tissue salts or “Cell salts“ are vital mineral constituents of the body. They combine with organic substances in the body to produce and maintain the infinite number of tissue-cells of which the human body is composed. Thus, any cell salt deficiency or imbalance may result in illness – the symptoms varying according to the deficient “biochemic“ cell salt. Dr Schuessler found that if the body was lacking in any of these salts, loss of health occurred. However he went on to state that if the deficiency was corrected, the body could in fact, heal itself.
It is important to note that Schuessler`s Biochemic Cell Salts are NOT drugs, but valuable micro dose cell foods prepared homeopathically in an extremely subdivided form which ensures rapid and easy assimilation, for the speedy restoration of the natural balance of the body system.
Bowen Therapist Tanya Pfitzner is proud to be an authorised supplier of Schuessler`s Biochemic Cell Salts.
