Homeopathy, arguably the safest alternative medicine is making a strong global comeback, despite having lost the first round to allopathy
Within a century and a half of its development, homeopathy spawned Bach flower remedies and Biochemic tissue salts.
Biochemic Tissue Salts
The Biochemic system owes its origins to DR Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler, a German doctor of medicine who was also a biochemist, physicist and homeopath. Between 1872 and 1898, he discovered that inorganic matter essential to health comprised 12 mineral tissue salts: Calc Fluor, Calc Phos, Calc Sulph, Ferr Phos, Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Kali Sulph, Mag Phos, Nat Mur, Nat Phos, Nat Sulph and Silica. A deficiency in any of these led to weakened cell structure and ill health. When the deficiency was corrected, the cells again functioned normally and health was restored. Biochemic tissue saltsalso called cell saltsare minerals in an energy form. The first signs of tissue salt deficiencies are visible in the face, much before physical symptoms occur. By reading the face signs and supplementing with the appropriate tissue salts, one can achieve a balanced correction at the cellular level, which enables the body to heal itself.
Thanks to DR Schuessler's findings, tissue salts are today used to treat acute and chronic conditions of viral, bacterial or fungal origin as they boost the body's own defence mechanism to counteract an infection and heal itself. Except for very rare cases of lactose intolerance, these salts are safe and gentle remedies that have no toxic or side effects. They can be safely used to treat young and old alike, including pets and plants.
DR Schuessler's therapy finds confirmation through the statement of Noble Prize winner DR Linus Pauling: "You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency."
Bach Flower Remedies
The system was founded by DR Edward Bach, a London consultant, bacteriologist and homeopath. DR Bach gave up a lucrative practice in 1930 to find remedies in the plant world that would restore vitality to the sick so that they could overcome negative states of mind and heal themselves. The remedies treat mental disorders in a natural way by flooding out negative feelings and emotions. The system uses essences made from flowers.
DR Bach discovered 38 flowers that between them cure all known negative states of mind that afflict mankind. He listed these under seven headings:
Anxiety and apprehension
Uncertainty and indecision
Insufficient interest in present circumstances
Over-sensitiveness to ideas and influences
Despondency and despair
Over-care for the welfare of others.
Dispensed in liquid and preserved in brandy, these remedies are benign in action, making them suitable for anyone. They attack problems at the root not by tackling physical complaints, but by changing negative states of the mind, which cause sickness and hinder recovery. A worried fearful mind saps an individuals vitality and makes the body lose its natural resistance. If peace, harmony and contentment return, the body begins its own natural healing process.
