Bioplasma – A Combination of all 12 Cell Salts

Homeopathic cell salts, also called tissue salts, are made from the twelve minerals found in human tissue. These twelve minerals work at the cellular level and are essential to your body’s functions. Forms of these minerals include: calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and silica.

There are 12 individual cell salts, labeled cell salt #1, cell salt #2, etc., and each is geared toward healing specific emotional and physical symptoms and ailments. You also have the option of taking a combination of all 12 mineral cell salts in one tablet, called “Bioplasma.” Taking all 12 cell salts together supports overall cellular health and function. 

Taking Bioplasma daily is used for relief of colds, headaches, simple nervous tension, digestion, increased energy, improved healing rates, and better handling of emotional and physical stress. Bioplasma is also thought to help with absorption of other nutrients at a cellular level.

Because Bioplasma contains all 12 minerals, it may help with remineralization of your teeth if applied topically.  

Cell salts are tiny, chalky tablets that quickly dissolve under the tongue or dissolve in a glass of water.

Bioplasma cell salts are a homeopathic medicine generally considered safe, generally lacking side effects, and can usually be taken in conjunction with other medications without complications. Find out how to take cell salts.

Bottom Line: Cell salts are a natural approach to medicine that stimulates the body's curative responses so the body heals itself. Give it a try!

The Theories Behind Diluted Homeopathic Remedies

How do dilute homeopathic remedies work? This is the question that brings up a lot of controversy between believers and nonbelievers of homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathic remedies are often diluted to the point where there may be no molecules of original substance left. One of the leading theories for how such extreme dilutions work is that water is capable of storing information about substances with which it has previously been in contact1, sort of like a ‘memory.’

1st Theory: The Structure of Water
Recent research on hydrogen bonds in water provides some support for this ‘memory’ theory. The Swiss chemist, Louis Rey, found the structure of hydrogen bonds in homeopathic dilutions of salt solutions is very different from that in pure water2. Through research, he concluded that the phenomenon happens because of the vigorous shaking of solutions that takes place during homeopathic ‘succussion’. Along with this, other researchers have found different homeopathic medicines and different dilutions of the same medicine can be distinguished from each other, even though all should contain nothing but water3.

2nd Theory: Molecular Clusters
An alternative theory comes from the results of research from South Korea. Studies on molecular clustering in water solutions show as a solution is made more and more dilute, very stable and larger ‘clumps’ of material develop in dilute solutions rather than in more concentrated solutions4.  This means that residual molecular clusters of the original substance might just be present in homeopathic dilutions. As with the first theory, succussion might also be responsible for creating very tiny bubbles (nanobubbles) that could contain gaseous inclusions of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and possibly the homeopathic source material3.

What do you think about all this? Is homeopathy truely effective or is it a placebo effect? I'm happy to hear your thoughts.

January: All Things Homeopathy

I’m really looking forward to the focus of January’s Health Buzz—Homeopathy! Homeopathy is a system of medicine founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, and is based upon three principles, which you'll learn more about.

I’ll explore what homeopathy is used for, how it’s being used to improve health, and the controversy behind its use. For an overview of this topic, check out our video blog about The Basics of Homeopathy.  

If you have any specific homeopathy questions or would like to share any homeopathic remedies, please leave me a comment.

Cell Salt #12: Silicea

Do your nails break easily?  Do your you have horrible foot sweat?!  Have an infection you need help with? If YES, then Silicea is for you! 

Silicea is the twelfth of twelve cell salts. It is also known as Silicic acid or silica. This cell salt is made from rock crystals.

Where is Silicea found?

It is found in our bones, teeth, hair, nails, glands, skin, and mucus membranes.

What is Silicea used for? 

HOMEOPATHIC LANCET:

#1 remedy for removing foreign objects from the body. Silica has a reputation as the “homeopathic lancet” because it hastens the pus-formation process. For example, boils or abscesses that are painful but not discharging yet. Give after a splinter has become embedded, and it will help the foreign body to be “evicted!” It helps with infections and post-surgical scars that are inflamed, painful, and slow to heal. Helps with acne with a lot of pus, leaving pock marks. Dental abscesses and infections of the gums.

STAMINA:

Use after surgery to help get strength back. Someone who has a short energy expenditure range, such as feeling exhausted after only 1 to 2 hours of waking in the morning. Silica is a great energy manager. People needing it delegate their energy...for example, manage their energy and time because of their concerns about running out of energy.

SWEATING:

Sweating is a key indicator a person needs Silica!  Horrible foot sweat and foot odor, and the sweat eats through socks.  Silica people sometimes wash their feet multiple times a day.  The worst thing you can do is use foot powder to suppress the sweat because anytime you suppress sweat in a silica person it makes them worse.  This remedy is used for athlete's foot.  Also works on sweaty hands or armpits.  Perspiration stains yellow. 

BODY TEMPERATURE:

Lack of heat...people needing Silica tend to get cold easily.

HAIR AND NAILS:

#1 cell salt for nails that break easily. Cracking nails, brittle nails, toenail problems with fungus, ingrown toenails, nails with white spots on them. Hair and nails are weak, brittle, thin, and break easily.

CHILDREN:

Teething babies take forever to produce teeth and get sick with diarrhea, cough, or a cold with every tooth.

BONES: 

Silica is also useful for building the health and strength of bones after a fracture—take in alternation with Calc fluor and/or Calc phos.

CONSTIPATION: 

Silica may be indicated for constipation with large, hard stools and lots of straining.

HEADACHES:

Headaches after a heavy period of work or with a sinus infection. These headaches settle over the eyes and make the forehead feel heavy.

CONFIDENCE:

Feelings of lack of self confidence. Feelings of a lack of "grit." Feelings of shyness or timidity.

Cell Salt #6: Kali Phosphoricum (Kali Phos)

Kali Phos, also known as Potassium Phosphate, is the sixth cell salt of twelve.

Where is Kali Phos found?

It is found in all cells, especially the gray matter of the brain, nerves, muscles, blood cells and plasma. All oxidation processes use this. 

How can Kali Phos help you?

BRAIN AND NERVES:

Kali Phos is especially effective for use with the brain and nerves. Someone who is nervous and restless will benefit from Kali Phos. Good for nervous exhaustion.

MEMORY AND BRAIN FATIGUE:

Kali Phos is great for sharpening the memory and brain fatigue. It can be used for those who are worn out following a heavy work or study period. Consider it a stress buster for students during exam time and those with mentally-taxing occupations, such as accountants and software engineers. Good for someone who is stressed and worn out from taking on too much. 

INSOMNIA:

This remedy is also lovely for the simple insomnia that follows a period of excitement or intense work or mental strain, when a person feels worn out but cannot sleep. This works well for people who work irregular hours.

OTHER SIGNS KALI PHOS MAY HELP YOU:

People who need this remedy feel better with—and desperately need—warmth and rest, and a healthy diet to build themselves up again. They feel emotionally sluggish and can become mildly depressed. They get one-sided headaches and may be sensitive to light and noise, and be easily startled.
