Some Interesting Information with regard to Practice
Time and again it comes to diverging statements with regard to the application of the Schuessler salts. This simply depends on the fact that different views with regard to these healing agents introduced by Dr. Schuessler have established themselves. In the last article, I have clearly referred to and classified biochemistry according to Dr. Schuessler as a substitutional therapy.
With regard to practice this now results in the following consequences:
Combinations: We go out from the fact that during the application of the now 33 mineral substances16 there are no antagonists, but that all can be combined amongst each other.
Dosage: Principally, the level of deficit determines the dosag (and not the age!)
“The number of the molecules administered must be large enough to cover the deficit!“
In general, a large deficiency is classified at 10 tablets/day, i.e., one tablet every hour. In case of a very strong deficiency even higher doses are administered, in acute situations even 1 tablet after another, until an alleviation of the symptoms takes place; after that, the number of tablets is reduced again. Medium deficiency requires 7 tablets, and a light deficiency is given 5 tablets a day.
Determination of deficit: There are different possibilities of ascertaining deficiencies:
- By way of face diagnosis
- By the description of the person concerned of his “symptoms”, disturbances, or even “diseases”,
- Via kinesiology
- Via certain cravings
Cravings point out a lack!
Lack creates cravings17 for certain kinds of food: it is quite clear that the organism in a situation of lack has a craving for such substances that are desperately needed, and, if this is not fulfilled, practically “cries out for it”. Here we have a problem! The language of the organism is most of the time not understood.
Preferences / Rejections
At this point, it is absolutely necessary to observe exactly the statement, which is often made by a number of people, “My body will tell me what it needs.” The answer is “yes and no!” If one understands the language of the body, the sentence is correct. If, however, the language is not understood, the wrong reaction is even reinforced by the lack!
|Carving for / Rejection of||Mineral Substance||Tabletts / day|
|milk||No.2 Calcium phosphoricum||10 – 20|
|smoked meat||No.2 Calcium phosphoricum||10 – 20|
|ketchup||No.2 Calcium phosphoricum||10|
|mustard||No.2 Calcium phosphoricum||10|
|liver, liver sausage, coffee||No.3 Ferrum phosphoricum||10|
|coffee||No.3 Ferrum phosphoricum||10|
|nuts, milk, chocolate||No.5 Kalium phosphoricum||10 – 30|

|noodles||No.9 Natrium phosphoricum||10|
|fats||No.9 Natrium phosphoricum||10|
|sweets||No.9 Natrium phosphoricum||10 – 30|
Cravings in pregnancy: It might happen here that the woman falls from one strong craving to another – pickled gherkin – marshmallows – meat loaf roll – chocolate cake – substantial – sweet (pregnancy requires a multitude of operating materials!)
First of all, all required mineral substances are taken out of the tins, counted, and mixed together. It is best to let the individual mineral substance tablets separately dissolve in the mouth. It is also possible to take several at once into the mouth, in this case different ionic channels in the cell membrane are served. (The more pressing the body requires the mineral substance, the faster they dissolve, or the sweeter they taste).
The mineral substances can also be dissolved in water and taken in sips, in which case each sip should be kept in the mouth as long as possible. The active ingredients are taken up by the body through the oral mucous membrane. In principle, the dosification and kind of intake has to be carried out individually, however, amounts like 5 to 10 items of a mineral substance are quite common, so that during the course of a prescription, 50 to 100 per day can be taken without any problems.
Possible Procedure of Intake
If, – due to a facial diagnosis or some other identification of needs, a person takes a certain amount of mineral substances, it might come to a strong need of these mineral substances in the beginning. This might get out of control in the form of greed. The first strong craving shows how strong the lack was.
Also, at the beginning of the intake, a certain resistance might be existing. In that case, a lower starting dosage should be chosen. Of course, everyone can also take more than he was recommended, it is not possible to take too much of these mineral substances. After a certain time, the strong feeling of the extremely strong need subsides, anyway.
As a rule, the user experiences the following stages:
- At the beginning of the intake, the feeling might be there that something is lacking if the mineral substances according to Dr. Schuessler are not taken.
- During the course of further intake, it is easily possible that they are forgotten or that even a rejection is built up. It is important to obey this feeling by all means.
- The intake must not be “pulled through” according to the recommended amount. The feeling of rejection shows that something is wrong.
There are several possibilities:
- The amount is too high and must be reduced until it is in keeping again.
- The composition is not agreeable anymore; a new facial diagnosis or other identification of need is necessary.
- A break has to be taken when “I’ve got them up to here” and when resistance is very strong. It has to be learned all over again to pay attention to one’s own instinct; and quite often, encouragement might be necessary. Everybody can only be responsible for their own body!
When the Mineral Substances have a Special Taste
The more the organism is in need of the individual mineral substances, the faster they dissolve, or the sweeter the taste, or it is both at the same time.
If one wants to observe this, all preparations have to stem from the same manufacturer.
However, there is also an unexpected feedback on the invitation to take Schuessler salts: ”Schuessler salts don’t agree with me!” or “What minerals have you recommended for me!?”
Mineral substances can evoke a particular taste, which signals the current need of just this substance; and it is this substance that should then be included in the mixture!
|Taste / Smell||Indicated Mineral Substance|
|chalky, sandy||No.2 Calcium phosphoricum|
|perfumed||No.4 Kalium chloratum|
|musty, mouldy||No.5 Kalium phosphoricum|
|nutty||No.5 Kalium phosphoricum|
|salty||No.8 Natrium chloratum|
|metallic||No.20 Kalium Aluminium sulfuricum, No.8 Natrium chloratum, also No.21 Zincum chloratum|
|sour or fishy / oily||No.9 Natrium phosphoricum|
|bitter||No.10 Natrium sulfuricum|
The possibility exists that several “tastes” can occur, too, which is for example frequently the case with BaseDent, but also with the “Power Mixture”.
Nos. 6+10: No. 6 Kalium sulfuricum is amongst others needed for the organism for transporting the waste that had been created, resp., stored inside the cell, to the outside. The “cleaning woman places the rubbish bags outside the door!“ In order to transport these now released burdening substances out of the body, the “waste collection” is needed! This is No. 10 Natrium sulfuricum. For this reason, No. 6 Kalium sulfuricum must always be combined with No. 10 Natrium sulfuricum, mainly when the organism is burdened with harmful substances. If this is not taken into consideration, it could lead to extremely unpleasant consequences, namely to a flooding of harmful substances in the metabolism.
Nos. 11+9: No. 11 Silicea dissolves (Dr. Schuessler has already written about this) acid bound in the body. It is therefore very important to combine this Schuessler salt with the regulator for acid, namely No. 9 Natrium phosphoricum. If this is not observed, it can come to unpleasant consequences, like for example heartburn. Some other results are ravenous appetite, craving for sweets and pastries, greasy hair or skin, etc.
Nos. 12 +(9+10): When our colloidal connective tissue18 is burdened with acid, it densifies, it compacts, indeed, proper hardenings occur, like for example a hardening of the thigh muscle. No. 12 Calcium sulfuricum is a very special mineral substance. It is able to open up compacted tissue again, in which case acids return into the metabolism, which calls for a combination with No. 9 Natrium phosphoricum . Also, harmful substances are released, which in turn demand a provision with No. 10 Natrium sulfuricum.
If these combinations are not taken into consideration, it might result in a problematic backlog of substances that have to be broken down and removed. Therefore one meets people again and again who say, “Schuessler salts don’t agree with me!” – What a shame!
