Characteristic effects of the individual Schuessler Mineral Salts – short summary

The following is a list of the characteristic effects of the individual mineral salts. If you understand German and wish to study the subject in depth, you will find valuable and easy to understand descriptions of the individual salts in the book “Lehrbuch der Biochemie”.

No. 1 Calcium fluoratum maintains the elasticity of muscles, tendons, tissue and vessels and hardens dental enamel; it is responsible for forming callus.

No. 2 Calcium phosphoricumis needed in protein synthesis. This affects the formation of blood and other cells, bones, antibodies and lecithin. It also strengthens the parasympathetic system, thus acting as a calming agent.

No. 3 Ferrum phosphoricum forms haemoglobin which is vital for supplying the organism with oxygen. It supports the non-specific immune system and also has an inhibitory effect on all acutely infectious processes and prevents infections. Additionally, it is a first-aid remedy for injuries because it has haemostatic and analgesic effects.

No. 4 Kalium chloratum regulates the elimination of toxins via the lymphatic and endocrine gland systems as well as via the liver and kidneys. It also regulates the specific immune system.

No. 5 Kalium phosphoricum is an essential mineral salt for the nervous system since it forms lecithin. Additionally, it regulates the sympathetic nervous system, thus acting as a stimulant. It breaks down and eliminates toxins resulting from decomposition and fatigue and it acts like an antiseptic.

No. 6 Kalium sulfuricum forms epidermal cells, regulates cell metabolism and assists liver, pancreas, intestinal and kidney activity. It is required for the transfer of oxygen from the blood to the cells.

No. 7 Magnesium phosphoricum regulates the autonomic nervous system and therefore influences the cardiac, circulatory, respiratory and glandular systems as well as the digestive organs and metabolism, primarily of the liver and the kidneys.

No. 8 Natrium phosphoricum is instrumental in forming mucous membranes, cartilage and synovial fluid. It regulates the water and bodily fluid balance and is vital for controlling pH balance. It is also responsible for eliminating metals from the body.

No. 9 Natrium phosphoricum mainly regulates lipometabolism and also eliminates excess uric, lactic and carbonic acids, among other things.

No. 10 Natrium sulfuricum assists cyclical metabolism, the catabolic water balance and sugar metabolism. It regulates the flow of bile.

No. 11 Silicea forms the basic structure of any connective tissue, regulates the conductivity of the nerves, breaks down haematomas and fluids in body cavities (antra) and foreign bodies – like rheumatic deposits, pus, splinters – in the tissues.
