Tissue Salts – Its Uses and Benefits

Tissue salts are a term you’ll frequently see in our various online courses. Tissue salts are minerals used in homeopathy and alternative medicine that are formulated to boost the body’s healing processes. It improves the body’s health and regulates mineral levels in the cells.

Our experts have put together a guide to help you better understand tissue salts.

Are tissue salts effective?

Homeopathic practitioners have used tissue salts for many years now. There’s proof that the power of tissue salts has helped improve the symptoms of homeopathic clients for the past 2 centuries. Minerals are building blocks of the body and play an essential role in keeping them healthy. Just having vitamins alone won’t help if the associated minerals aren’t present.

Our bodies lose minerals due to stress, exercise, poor nutrition, and pollution (electro-pollution, in particular). Mineral salts help replenish depleted minerals, creating a balance in our bodies.

Mineral balance in the body’s cells allows them to function well and preserve good health. Tissue salts repair any damage and restore the health of your cells.

How are tissue salts used?

Tissue salts are generally available in tablet form, specifically lactose tablets. Each one has a small amount of tissue salt. The tablets are meant to be dissolved under the tongue and not swallowed. You can incorporate them into your routine in other forms, including ointments, gels, and creams.

Since there are a number of tissue salts available, a homeopathic practitioner may recommend multiple tissue salts to a patient, depending on their health concerns.

Do tissue salts have any side effects?

Since tissue salts contain such a small amount of minerals, there are minimal chances of side effects or reactions with other medications. However, it’s always good to let your doctor and homeopathic practitioner know the medication and tissue salts you’re on.
