'You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.' Dr. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes. This statement is not at all surprising if one looks at the work done by Dr. Schuessler on cell salts in the 1850's.

He found that the ability of the body to utilise nutritional material is impaired when there is a tissue salt deficiency. He also concluded that if the body became deficient in these essential minerals, the deficiency caused an abnormal or diseased condition. To Dr. Schuessler, a symptom was merely a distress signal, warning that a body constituent was missing and when restored, the body condition returns to normal.

This safe, easy-to-use system is a MUST for all therapists and those with an interest in this subject.
