there's probably a few different perspectives. The way I was taught is that the cell salts address constitutional deficiencies...meaning deficiencies you came into the world with. They aren't generally acquired, though they can ebb and flow with illness. So yes, they address the root cause, but they aren't always as fast as a homeopathic remedy...they are, however, more foundational.
Thanks so much! It makes more sense now. One's constitution works a bit like one's temperament/personality -- You're born with it. There are inherent weaknesses and "ups and downs", but you learn to manage them. Cell salts to strengthen the foundation, homeopathy to help with acute and higher energy disturbances. There's a certain beauty to how all of this works together!
It's difficult not to compartmentalize things, but I'm slowly seeing how approaches overlap and can help the body at multiple levels (physical, mental, spirtual). This is probably off-topic, but does anyone have suggestions on how to get my mind around how cell salts, homeopathy, energy healing, acupuncture, ayurveda, etc. work together? The energy field seems to be one common factor. Any thing else?
