What Causes Illness?
For a discussion about mineral deficiencies being the root cause of all illness,
especially chronic conditions, please click through to that article through the Access Password link on the left.
If you believe in the "big bang" theory of evolution, then
we all come from star dust... the same dust that formed the planets, suns and
galaxies. In fact, the entire universe came from star dust... which is
essentially mineral dust. So it's no wonder why we have iron floating
around in our blood.
There are 12 tissue (cell) salts that the body needs on the
cellular level and simply cannot do without.
Just like scientists can peer at a planet from a distance and tell that the
planet is lacking air, oxygen or water, each cell salt has unique deficiency signs that can be detected through symptoms or anatomical
changes. One obvious example is
translucent tips of the teeth, which indicate a calcium deficiency.
Imagine the human body as a sack of water (we are 70%
water) held together by minerals and powered by electricity.
Minerals are the workers that use biological materials to build the body.
For instance, the body needs to be hydrated to function properly.
But without salt, water doesn't work at the cellular level.
Sodium chloride (Nat Mur) must be present for the body to use water.
Just like a pile of stone would just sit there until a
mason used them to build something.
Biological material is useless without minerals to use them as building blocks.
Since minerals are inorganic, the body can’t make them as it can vitamins
and enzymes. We must get
minerals from the soil.
Even plants, that normally
contain minerals, can only take what the soil has to offer. Plants cannot
manufacture minerals. If the soil is
deficient, the plant and the food derived form it will also be mineral
deficient. With the exploitation of the once mineral-rich soils on
our planet, one must wonder how mineral rich our foods are these days.
The 12 Cell Salts fall into six categories:
Calcium group: Calc Flor, Calc Phos, Calc Sulph
Sodium group: Nat Mur, Nat Phos, Nat Sulph
Potassium group: Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Kali Sulph,
Iron: Ferrum Phos
Magnesium: Mag Phos
Silica or Silicea
There is much information on the web about tissue salts. The following article is an introductory summary of some of the basic characteristics of the 12 Cell Salts, grouped together for ease of understanding, along with a description of their unique deficiency symptoms.
An excellent resource if you wish more detail is the book, Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficiencies: A User's Guide, by David R. Card.
