Now I know what my mom is getting me for my birthday!

Oh boy, how do I know it is cell salts and not just 6x's? I have a bottles of Kali Mur 6x that I thought was a cell salt when I bought it online, but it came in a regular glass bottle and seems like a regular remedy. I do have calc fluor and calc carb 6x's that are different in texture, kind of melty in the mouth.

And the "you want to take breaks", what does that mean? Does the books you recommended talk about that and other instructions?

a cell salt is different than a remedy. Cell salts are NOT homeopathic. They are nutritional. 6x is a dilution, not a potency. If you buy cell salts they can come in different "potencies" but it's not the same meaning as standard homeopathics. You can get 3X, 6X and 12X generally. I prefer 6X...though I do like calc fluor every now and again at 12X. Some combos do have it like that (Melange is one) because Shuessler originally used it at 12X. My personal home "kit" is all 6X though.

So, as long as it's sold as "cell" or "tissue" salt you should be okay.

The books are good...but the second I mentioned (while excellent) isn't as clear in what the salts are vs what they aren't.

In terms of breaks...you can do it many different ways. You can take them daily and take one week off a month. You can take them during the week and take the weekend off. I don't always do this myself () but I miss enough days that I figure it all evens out!

Again, this is my take on it-other practitioners may have other opinions.

hmmm, since calc carb isn't a cell salt I'm not too sure about that. Most of the salts that are widely available are in tablet form though, not pellet. That's not to say you can't find them that way...it's just not the norm.

I was typing while focusing on my teething babe, so I meant to writev calc phos. Thanks for pointing that out.

Time to check and see if the bottles say homeopathic...
post #27 of 1199
This is the calc phos and calc fluor I have, but the bottles doesn't say anything about "tissue" or "cell salt".

This is the Kali Mur 6x I have. And again it says nothing about "cell" or "tissue":

The numbers on the bottle (1-12) indicate that they are cell salts.

This I'd say is a remedy. Unless you specifically asked for or used the link on the side bar for cell salts. They do carry them and they do look similar but they appear to be basically out of stock now. I don't know enough about their salts to say whether or not I'd buy them. While I don't love Hylands, their salts are widely available and I'd not hesitate to use them.

The Bioplasma has been incredibly helpful around here during illnesses. Like, a noticeable difference, that I really didn't expect TBH! I love it when I am amazed!

One question for PB though, do you need to do the same thing with cell salts as a remedy, in terms of not eating or drinking for 5 or so minutes before and after?
post #32 of 1199
Some say so. I don't really think it's a big deal. I wouldn't take them with something else IN my mouth....other than that though I think you're good!

They are nifty little things, aren't they?
post #33 of 1199
just ordered a set last night. Can't Wait!
post #34 of 1199
Just to clarify since this is SO new to me I want to make sure I'm getting the right cell salts. For teeth decay I want to give calc phos6x, calc flur6x and silica for teething??? Thanks bluebirdmamma

DD has decay on 2 front teeth.
post #35 of 1199
They each serve different purposes. Calc fluor helps with decay in the enamel. IT is also wonderful for sensitive teeth. While calc fluor is for the enamel, calc phos is for the inner structure of the tooth. It's also a salt that helps with assimilation of nutrients and delayed or painful dentition. All of the phosphates have a distinct action on the nervous system.

Silica is basically a salt that supports all of the metabolic processes. It's not specific to teeth, but it's specific to assimilation of nutrients and expulsion of toxins that may prevent assimilation of nutrient. I find it's useful to give if there is delayed dentition as an all around support.

DD really needs help with assimilating nutrients. What exactly do you mean by delayed dentition ??

teeth taking a long time to come in.
post #38 of 1199
I am thankful for this fascinating thread. I am 10 weeks pregnant and already experiencing some round ligament pain (I guess tightness would be a more accurate description). I was looking at the Nervous Tension - Tissue P formula and was wondering if that would be helpful, even generally though my pregnancy. I was planning on ordering that and the Bioplasma. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
post #39 of 1199
YES! Calc fluor specifically would be what you want, but I love that combo. DEFINITELY get bioplasma too...every pregnant woman in the world should be on it. Homeopathic literature going back centuries has shown documented positive changes using it at this precious time. It has specifically been shown to be of significant benefit in reducing midline defects which are becoming more prevalent now. I highly recommend using it.

If the Bioplasma is so great, why not take that and not anything else?
