The Biochemic System of Medicine
"The Biochemic System of Medicine is based primarily and fundamentally upon the "cell theory" of Virchow*. In 1858 that great scientist pronounced the now famous dictum that the body is merely a collection of cells, and that medicinal treatment should be directed towards the individual cell. This great truth once enunciated, was seized upon, developed and elaborated by others, notably Moleschott of Rome, and Schuessler of Oldenburg, until with the full appreciation of the value of the inorganic constituents of the cell substance, and the part taken by them in the preservation of the health of the human organism, the Biochemic treatment of disease truly became a system of medicine.
"In this system for the first time the paramount importance of the inorganic constituents of the cell substance was recognised, the fact being that these "cell salts", as they are commonly called, are the vital portions of the body, the workers, the builders; that the water and organic substances forming the remainder of the
organism are simply inert matter used by these salts in building the cells of the body.
"Should a deficiency occur in one or more of these workers, of whom there are twelve, some abnormal condition arises. These abnormal conditions are known by the general term disease and according as they manifest themselves in different parts of the body, they have been designated by various names. But these names totally fail to express the real trouble.
"Every disease which afflicts the human race is due to a lack of one or more of these inorganic workers. Every pain or unpleasant sensation indicates a lack of some inorganic constituent of the body. Health and strength can be maintained only so long as the system is properly supplied with these call salts."
The Biochemic Handbook, by JB Chapman MD & Edward L. Perry, pp.1-2
How each cellsalt works
Cell salts work at a basic cellular level and provide the means whereby the actual cells are able to use organic substances (food) and water to operate normal functions within the body as well as repair it.
Briefly, the actions of each of the cell salts is given below.
Restores strength to the body, aids in growth and development and convalescence. Good for circulation, bones and teeth.
Blood purifier, cleans out accumulations of non-functional, organic matter in the blood and tissues. Good for
catarrh and acne.
Contributes to elasticity walls of blood vessels, muscular and connective tissue, surface of bones and tooth enamel. Is indicated where relaxed conditions exist, sluggish circulation, varicose veins, cracks in skin, cracked and calloused heels and muscular weakness.
Sodium Phosphate (nat phos)
Acid neutraliser, deficiency allows uric acid to form salts which become deposited around the joints and tissues giving rise to stiffness and swelling, and other painful rheumatic conditions. Highly coloured urine, worms, nervous irritability.
Sodium Sulphate (nat sulph)
Removes poison charged fluids which are the normal result of chemical exchanges in the body. Important in the treatment of rheumatism, bitter taste in the mouth, biliousness, flu and malaria.
Sodium Chloride (nat mur)
Regulates water distribution within the cells. Excessive moisture in any part of the system indicates nat mur deficiency.
Colds with discharge of watery mucus, wheezing, sneezing, blocked nose, itchy-sore throat, dry, painful nose and throat symptoms, toothache and facial neuralgia with flow of tears and saliva, eyes weak, the wind causes them to water.
Low spirits with a feeling of hopelessness, headaches with constipation, thin blood, difficult stools with rawness and soreness of the anus.
Drowsiness, unrefreshing sleep - tired in the morning, loss of taste and smell, craving for salty foods and slow digestion.
Potassium Phosphate (kali phos)
Nerve nutrient, helps maintain contented disposition and sharpens the mental faculties. Sleeplessness, depression, lack of pep, foot odour.
Potassium Sulphate (kali sulph)
Works in conjunction with ferrum phos as an oxygen carrier. Sticky yellowish discharges, dandruff.
Potassium chloride (kali mur)
Thick white discharges, white coating on tongue, stops blood clots, light coloured stools, noisy coughs, colds, sore throats, bronchitis,
symptoms worse after eating fatty foods, warts on hands.
Deficiency causes spasms, twitching, and cramps. Indicated for nerve pains such as neuralgia, sciatica and pains associated with shooting, darting stabs of pain.
Silica / silicon dioxide
Deep cleanser and eliminator, breaks up pathological accumulations e.g., abscesses, breaks down
calcium deposits and spurs. Treats offensive odour of the feet and arms,
night sweats, itchy eyes and nose, ringing in the ears, good for sinus
Iron Phosphate (ferrum phos)
Known as the oxygen carrier, gives strength and toughness to arteries, blood vessels and skin. For congestion, inflammatory pain, high temperature, quickened pulse.
Conditions ending in -itis are considered to be inflammatory e.g., arthritis.
Combination remedies have been specially formulated for use in certain groups of ailments, and are the result of many years of clinical experience.
are an economical and convenient way of taking cellsalts and are available in a
variety of brands.
I particularly like Combination H (hayfever) and Combination R.

Blackmores Professional Range
The Blackmores Professional Range can be ordered from some chemists and
health food stores. There are about 25 different tablets with different mixes of
cellsalts. The one I used to take which is similar to the old Blackmores Sodium Compound (now
contained sodium phosphate and sodium sulphate. These can be ordered from some
chemists and health shops. Just ask and see if they can get them in for you.

Calcium can be taken in
different forms such as dolomite (calcium and magnesium),
calcium carbonate, gluconate, lactate -- generally available from
chemists. Apparently any of these forms provide calcium cellsalts
as the calcium somehow gets converted into the various calcium cellsalts.
Calcium carbonate is the best form that I've found, although I've been told
that calcium citrate is best of all - which I've never tried. Calcium
carbonate are stronger than some of the other forms such as calcium
gluconate. I remember taking about 16 of these tablets to get 1 gram
of elemental calcium, and they are very hard to chew. With calcium
carbonate 2 tablets = 1 gram of elemental calcium and a lot easier to

- Potassium cellsalts can be obtained from cream of
tartar which is a very high source of potassium.
What is cream of tartar?
Cream of tartar (potassium hydrogen tartrate) is a
component of baking powder. (Baking powder comprises baking soda and cream of
Cream of tartar is a by-product of winemaking; it's derived from
refined tartaric acid, which forms on the inside of wine barrels, or from the
whitish crystals (known as 'white diamonds') that precipitate out of some wines.
It's used in baking and in making desserts. It gives a creamy texture to
icings and is used to stabilise and increase the volume of beaten egg whites, so
is often used in making meringues. ( source
