The Biochemic Tissue Salts
The Biochemic remedies are one of many branches of alternative therapies. This system in its present form was discovered by Dr.W.H.Schuessler, a German physician. He found that the ashes of dead bodies contained 12 inorganic compounds, which he called tissue salts.
- Calcarea Fluorica ..................... ..............................CF
- Calcarea Phosphorica..............................................CP
- Calcarea Sulphurica.................................................CS
- Ferrum Phosphoricum .............................................FP
- Kali Muriaticum.........................................................KM
- Kali Phosphoricum....................................................KP
- Kali Sulphuricum.......................................................KS
- Magnesium Phosphoricum........................................MP
- Natrum Muriaticum....................................................NM
- Natrum Phosphoricum...............................................NP
- Natrum Sulphuricum..................................................NS
- Silicea .......................................................................S
Though Samuel Hahnemann opined on the great importance of the inorganic tissue salts as remedies and was the pioneer in their therapeutic uses, yet, to Dr Schuessler goes the distinction of putting this idea in the form of a new system of treatment known today as the Biochemic System of treatment.
The theory behind Dr.Schuessler's Biochemic System of treatment
Schuessler realised that the Biochemic Remedies or tissue salts were inert in their natural state and for them to work they had to be energised or potentised. He opined that these salts in the body were in a molecular form in the tissues and disease occurred when there was a deficiency of one or more of these salts leading to disturbance in the molecular motion of these cell salts.
Re-establishing the molecular motion of the cell salts by giving minute quantities of the deficient cell salts improved health.
The dose of Biochemic Medicines or Salts
Biochemic medicines are given in minute doses as the cell salts themselves are in a minute quantity in the tissue. One might wonder how minute quantities can give relief in diseases. Some interesting facts are given below.
In 1000 gms of blood cells the number of inorganic substances according to Bunge's "Textbook of Physiological and Pathological Chemistry" are
Iron ....................................................................... 0.998
Kali Sulph.............................................................. 0.132
Kali Mur................................................................. 3.079
Kali Phos............................................................... 2.343
Nat Phos............................................................... 0.633
Calc Phos............................................................. 0.094
Mag Phos............................................................... 0.060
Again, 1000 gms of Plasma has
Kali Sulph.............................................................. 0.281
Kali Mur.................................................................. 0.359
Natrum Mur........................................................... 5.546
Calc Phos.............................................................. 0.298
Mag Phos......................................................... ..... 0.218
Natrum Sulph, Flour & Silicea only in traces.
It can be thus seen that the cell salts are in very minute quantities in the cells. The quantity of mineral salt in just one cell can well be imagined. It is so infinitesimally small.
According to a calculation by C.Schmidt, a physiologist each blood corpuscle contains about 1 billionth part of a gram of Kali Mur.
Incidentally, this corresponds to the 12th decimal trituration of the salt.
Take Natrum Mur for example, which is common salt or the salt we eat. If this salt were to reach the blood it cannot be given in a concentrated solution. It will just go in the intestines and produce watery diarrhoea and will get cast out of the system. But if the salt was diluted in solution it would enter the blood and intercellular fluids when taken in from the mouth and oesophagus where its molecules penetrate the epithelium.
Therefore every Biochemic remedy that is salt must be sufficiently diluted to avoid destroying the function of the healthy cells and to restore the disturbed function.
It is found that in a healthy body the salts are found in solution corresponding to the 3rd, 4th & 5th decimal dilution.
Thus all biochemic salts or tissue salts must be diluted to a level whereby its molecules may penetrate the epithelium of the mouth, oesophagus and reach the blood through the capillary walls.
It is relevant to note here that in some mineral waters the mineral salts are present in quantities to the 8th decimal dilutions. Most of the famous springs owe their good results to the fact the salts are present in highly diluted concentrations.
Salts insoluble in water must be diluted to at least the 6th decimal dilution while those soluble in water are effective at 3rd decimal dilutions for them to penetrate the epithelial cells.
How the dilutions are made
When 1 grain of the salt is added to 9 grains sugar of milk and triturated for at least 2 hours, we get the 1st decimal dilution or potency. This is the 1X potency.
If 1 grain of this 1X salt is mixed with 9 grains of milk of sugar and triturated for at least 2 hours, we get the 2nd decimal dilution or the 2X potency and so on.
If instead of taking 9 grains of sugar of milk, 99 grains of sugar of milk is taken and 1 grain of the salt is taken and the whole procedure is repeated as above, we get the centesimal potencies and the potency of the salts are numbered as 1,2, 3,6,12,30,200 etc.
Dr.Schuessler recommended 2 to 5 grains of the salt per dose with 3 to 4 doses in a day. Some others recommend giving the same amount in water and giving teaspoon doses every 1 to 2 hours.
My personal experience is that the selected salt or a combination of salts, is most effective when 1 grain of a single salt or combination of the salts is dissolved in a glass of water and a teaspoonful of this solution is taken every 2 to 3 hours in chronic cases or every few minutes in acute cases like headache, vomiting, stomachache etc.
This way the salt molecules are in solution and can be easily absorbed by the epithelial cells and reach the blood faster.
It would be better to avoid strong-smelling eatables like onions, pickles etc and to have a gap of about 30 minutes before and after anything is eaten.
Storage And Life of The Tissue Salts
The Tissue Salts should be stored in a cool place free of strong smells in a closed box. The medicine remains good for at least 10 years.
Potencies to use
All the 12 salts except FP (I will now on use the abbreviations given for the salts earlier) and Silicea, act best in the 3X potency. FP and S act best in the 12X potency.
CP 3X be given to young people while CP 12X be given to very old and very weak people. If these potencies do not act or act for a short time, higher potencies like 6X,12X and 30X should be used. 200X potency can be used once a day, while potencies up to 30X are given 3 to 4 times a day.
Brief properties of the 12 Biochemic Salts or Tissue Salts
1. Calcarea Fluorica (CF)
It is useful for Adenoids, swelling of glands, enlarged or varicose veins, malnutrition of bones, bones increased due to injury, dilation of heart, blood vessels and piles, cracks on skin or tongue, the stony hardness of glands. It is good for easy childbirth.
2.Calcarea Phosphorica (CP)
It has wonderful properties of restoring health after disease. It's useful in anaemia and rickets, in gall stones, useful in the dentition but it should not be given for long. Give it off and on.
3. Calcarea Sulphurica (CS)
When well-selected remedies act for a short while, CS improves their action. This salt heals abscesses after Silicea has been given.
4. Ferrum Phosphoricum (FP)
It is very useful in the initial stages of inflammations and fevers, bleeding from fresh wounds, contusions, sprains etc. Useful in pains which are worse from motion and better from the cold. FP 200X and KP 200X reduce the pain of cancer.
5. Kali Muriaticum (KM)
It is useful for ear problems, swollen glands and fevers, for stomach troubles if this is due to fatty or rich food. If motion makes the pain worse, this is a remedy.
6. Kali Phosphoricum (KP)
It helps in blood poisoning, excellent for insanity and mental troubles, in brain fag, hysteria, loss of memory, nervousness, typhoid fevers, paralysis of any part of the body.
In Insanity, 200X potency should be followed by the 200 potency.
It also relieves the bad effects of Allopathic, Ayurvedic and Unani Medicines.
7. Kali Sulphuriaticum (KS)
If eruptions have been suppressed and disease has resulted, it brings out the eruptions. It produces perspiration. It improves the action of other remedies.
8. Magnesia Phosphorica (MP)
Excellent in pain which is relieved by warmth, worse on the right side and in cold by pressure, in all kinds of pains except those of burning nature. It removes spasms and convulsions. Gives relief from hiccups, insomnia.
It acts best in hot water.
9. Natrum Muriaticum (NM)
It is indicated if secretions are either increased or decreased in the body, like too much or too little saliva or water from the eyes. Excellent for heart failure removes weakness and conditions of sudden collapse, sunstroke and heatstroke, brain fag.
10. Natrum Phosphoraticum (NP)
Useful in TB and jaundice.
11. Natrum Sulphuriaticum (NS)
Useful in mental troubles caused by injury to the head. It is the main salt in diabetes. Indicated in patients who are worse in damp weather and open-air, worse from lying on the left side, chronic effects of gonorrhoea infections.
It should not be given if there is bleeding.
12. Silicea (S)
Indicated in patients worse at night or after sleep, in winter, cold or open air and during a full moon or new moon. Better by heat and in a warm room and in summer.
It ripens abscesses and boils. It removes foreign matter from throat or flesh like needles, fishbone etc.
1 If the patient is worse at night add CP3X or 12X and S12X if not in the formula.
2. S12X acts wonderfully but its action lasts only for a few days. If the patient's condition does not improve by then, give 30X, then 200X once a day and then S 200 on alternate days.
3. If the trouble is worse in winter add KM 3X, NM 3X and S12X if not there in the formula.
4. If the trouble is worse in damp weather add NS 3X to the formula if not there.
5. If the trouble is worse on change of weather add CP 3X or 12X to the formula.
6. If the trouble is worse on motion, add FP 12X, KM 3X and NM 3X to the formula.
7. If there is improvement increase the interval between doses.
8. If the patient suffers from 2 or more diseases the medicines for the diseases can be taken alternately.
9. In an emergency, any other potency can be used.
10. If there is bleeding from any part of the body, NS should not be given.
11. CS should be given if correct medicines act for a short time only.
12. If other combinations of medicines have failed, a mixture of all 12 salts does good sometimes.
13. The high potency of medicine aggravates while low potency of the same medicine antidotes the effect of high potency.
14. If possible NM or combinations containing NM should be given at 8 AM, 12 Noon, 4 PM and 8 PM. It acts best at this time. In emergencies, it can be given anytime, however.
Listed below are some very effective combinations of the tissue salts.

Points To Be Noted
1. If the 1st formula of the mixture doesn't work or works for a short while, try the next formula and so on.
2. For all purposes, 1 Tablet of each salt is to be taken either alone or for making the mixture. This must be mixed in half a glass of water if the salt is given alone or a full glass of water if the mixture is used.
A sip of water can be taken if a teaspoon is not at hand at intervals of a few minutes in acute cases and emergencies otherwise in routine cases the dose, a sip/ a teaspoon can be taken every 2 hours. When this water is consumed make fresh medicated water.
Before taking a dose from the medicated water stir the water as the salt or mixture settles down and consume the water. Stir every time before taking the dose.
Preferably use tepid water or tap water, not cold water. In formulae containing MP mix the powder in hot water.
3. Many of these mixtures have been used on several occasions and have yielded very good results.
4. I will be adding formulae for more diseases shortly so do revisit the hub.
5. The update will also have homoeopathic remedies.

Dear Dr Parin,
Thank you very much for reading my article and appreciating it. I am glad that inspite of being a MD in Allopathy you have no reservations in trying out this system of medicine.
I appreciate the fact that you accept that you did get results with Biochemic salts. Your comments mean a lot to me personally and I hope will instill more confidence in those who read my article.
Dr Parin N Paramr on May 18, 2016:
I am a Pediatric Allergist-Immunologist (allopath) and I have been using biochemic tissue salts for more than 1 year now. I have seen beautiful results with biochemic and I don't know why it is not popular in our area (Gujarat). I even don't know why homeopaths do not give importance to biochemic salts, although they might be knowing about them.
By the way, your article is very useful one and a comprehensive one, I'm sure many will be benefited from it, including myself.

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on August 08, 2015:
Anil, there is no remedy for ingrowing toe nail in biochemic sytem. However there is in homeopathy but you will have to go see a homeo doctor.
As a precaution wear the right footwear that does not press into the feet or is tight and cut nails carefully.

Deepak on April 05, 2013:
My mother aged 50 had taken some ayurvedic medicine for 2 years from some unregistered person claiming to be doctor for acidity problem (hereditary in our case). She gained weight during that time otherwise in our family all are slim. But now after complaining about chest irritation, she stopped using those tablets and now she has developed joint pains in small joints like fingers in hands and legs and backpain in spinal. I consulted one of my friend who happens to be dentist and he recommended me biochemical tissue therapy # 19. I read case study about heavy metal toxicity in bone and blood after using unregistered ayurvedic medicines. Please advice.

You can get KM in all potencies at any homeopathic medicine store. However, 6X potency can be used in the same way as 3X. 1 tab in water and sip slowly.
Thanks for reading.
Lisa on October 28, 2012:
I am thinking of trying KM 3X 4 times a day to start for my problem - dry scratchy back of throat (I always want to itch by moving my tongue back there). Swallowing isn't painful, but can feel dry & a little sticky. The cause may be post nasal drip because I have seasonal allergies. My best help currently is Halls candy, but if I can find a natural solution I would love it!
However, I only see KM 6X for sale online. Would that be good? And I would dissolve 1 tab in water & sip slowly?
Thank you very much for your advice!

Sumedha, for diabetes the formula is -
NS 6X, MP6X - 4 times daily for a week to 10 days. failing which take,
NP 6X & NS 6X - 4 times daily for 7 to 10 days; if no benefit take mixture of CP 3X or 12X, FP 12X, KM 3X, KP 3X, MP 3X, NM 3X, NP 3X, NS 3X and S 12X.
Also, avoid potatoes, sugar & rice.
Hope this benefits.
sumedha on October 01, 2012:
Rajan,thanks for the guidance of twelve tissue remedies.Is there any remedy for diabetes,as I am on the borderline.My fbs is around 120 and pmbs is around 150.
Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on September 07, 2012:
Murali, take CP 3X instead of 12 X. Take KS 3X along with KP 3X.
Thanks for reading.
Murali on August 31, 2012:
Great work Rajan.
I suffer from acidity (a veryanxious type), lack of concentration and also hair loss and have started with NP3X (for acidity), CP12X(concentration) and KP3X (hair loss). Seems to giving some relief (just started a day ago).
Does my approach make sense?
Thanks and great site by the way.
Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on August 30, 2012:
Kamlesh, let your relative take the biochemic mixtures for arthritis and rheumatism alternately 4 times a day. give a gap of 15 minutes between the 2 medicines.
Some other steps that can be taken are :
Start doing Kapalbhati pranayam. % minutes initially and then go upto 30 minutes daily . Go slow. Read my hub on Pranayam by going to my profile and clicking on that hub.
Secondly, consume 2 cloves of garlic daily. Crush the garlic first, leave it for 5 minutes and then take with water. Every morning on empty stomach.
Thirdly, and consult the doctor if he has BP, make a mixture of equal quantities of saunth, methi seeds powder and haldi. Mix well and take 1/2 tsp in the morning with milk everyday.
I'm not a doctor but this has been my experience that these things if done regularly benefit in reducing the discomfort to a very large extent.
Follow it and I'd like to have your feedback as to how the RA is after sometime.
Thanks for reading.
Kamlesh on August 30, 2012:
Dear Ranjan ji,
First of all thanks for sharing such a nice information with evryone in the world.

I'm sorry I do not have any idea about their classification on the basis of unani medicine.

Harsha, biochemic remedies are free of any side effects and extremely simple to consume. As seizures are related to nerves, Kali phos would be beneficial as it is a nerve remedy.
Thanks for reading and commenting.
Harsha Vardhana R from Bangalore on April 27, 2012:
Rajan, thanks for the crisp info. Any layman who has been intimidated by the number of drugs and umpteen potencies of homeopathy, can get a hope from these simple remedies.
Do you have any salt for epilepsy/seizures in particular? I heard Kali Phos or 5 Phos would be helpful
Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on April 24, 2012:
Suhas, I agree with you. Biochemic therapy needs to be promoted. It is a side effects free therapy and can be used in many day to day health problems.
Thanks for reading, appreciating and sharing your views.
suhas on April 24, 2012:
I have very good experience of biochemic, its really good. but if you went to Homeopathic Doctor they are not recommended it. why i dont understand.... any how its really nice to see such good post here... Thanks Mr. Rajan.
God bless you

Thanks for your input. Its unfortunate that alternate therapies are not given their due inspite of their efficacies in treating a lot of problems and without the serious side effects of allopathic medicines. We should make people around us more aware of these systems of healing.
premsingh on October 11, 2011:
This hub is full of information about biochemic salts. I understand the power of these salts. Unfortunate part is lack of sincere research and efforts for utilization of its full potential. In countries like India and other countries, homeopathy should be promoted by equating this to other branches of medical sciences to provide cheap and reliable treatment to poor people..
Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on October 05, 2011:
Ruchira, thanks for such a big compliment. I am honoured but I am a mere mortal like everyone else. Just a bit more inquisitive I guess.
Thanks for the read.
