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!

Homeopathic Remedies for Stress and Anxiety

Let’s face it, we all feel stressed or some type of anxiety or nervous tension every now and then. About two years ago, I discovered an effective homeopathic remedy to support these uncomfortable, unwanted symptoms and feelings. The key homeopathic ingredient is Kali Phos (aka: Potassium Phosphate), which is the sixth cell salt of twelve. It's found in all cells of our body, especially the gray matter of the brain, nerves, muscles, blood cells and plasma.

Kali Phos is especially effective for use with the brain and nerves, which is why it helps with stress and anxiety. Someone who is nervous and restless will also benefit from Kali Phos.  

Hyland’s Kali Phos cell salt #6

My go-to homeopathic remedy for stress and anxiety is Hyland’s Kali Phos cell salt #6. Here are the two primary symptoms for which I use Kali Phos

Memory and Brain Fatigue

Kali Phos is also 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 Kali Phos a stress buster for students during exam time and those with mentally-taxing occupations, such as accountants and engineers. My software engineer husband loves this cell salt and strongly believes in it. This cell salt #6 also works great for someone who is stressed and worn out from taking on too much. Does this sound like you? It was me, so now I keep cell salt #6 on hand at all times, and take as needed.

Insomnia

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

Luyties Cell Salt for Nervous Tension, Tissue P

Another useful homeopathic remedy for treating stress is Luyties cell salt for nervous tension, tissue P. It contains Kali Phos, so works very similar to Hyland’s Cell Salt #6 by supporting emotional and physical stress.

Tissue P is formulated to provide relief of many things that contribute to mental stress, such as sadness, anger, work, study, tests, deadlines, pressure, or sleeplessness.

If you would like more information about homeopathy, check out, What are Cell Salts???, and here’s information about How to Take Cell Salts

Homeopathic remedies are natural and safe, so give Kali Phos 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.

Explore Your Homeopathic Options

Luyties Pharmacal Co., Bioron, and Hyland’s are three very reputable companies with a focus on homeopathy. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that originated over 200 years ago by a German doctor. Homeopathic medicine is still practiced today, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing. Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted substances, prepared by a careful process of dilution and agitation. Patients are treated with the theory of "Like Cures Like". This means a substance that has a specific symptom in a person who is well, can be used to treat those same symptoms in someone who is unwell. 

Who Oversees Homeopathic Medicine? 

Two organizations are involved in the standardization and overseeing of homeopathic production: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the US (HPUS). The HPUS establishes the tests, standards, assays and production methods for each remedy it incorporates. The FDA uses HPUS monographs plus the same rules and regulations it applies to other forms of medicine to oversee and scrutinize homeopathic manufacturing, production and labeling.

What Are Cell Salts?

What are Cell Salts??? Great question!

Cell salts are made from the twelve minerals essential to your body's functions. They include forms of calcium, potassium, magnesium sodium, iron, and silica, which work at the cellular level. There are 12 individual cell salts and each is geared toward healing specific emotional and physical symptoms and ailments. There is also a combination of 12 cell salts available which is called “Bioplasma”. It has all 12 cell salts in each tablet to provide overall cell support. Very cool, right?! Another great thing about cell salts is they are natural and considered homeopathic. 

What is Homeopathy? 

It is a natural approach to medicine that stimulates the body’s curative responses so the body heals itself. It has been proven effective for 200+ years!

Safety, Interactions, Age?

Homeopathic medicines are generally considered safe, generally lack side effects, and can be taken by nearly anyone at any time, from infants to the elderly, including people taking over-the-counter or prescription medications. My 16 month old recently had a cough and congestion he wasn’t kicking on his own, so I gave him a cell salt formulated for a baby with a cough and within a day he was better. He was easily able to take the tablets since they dissolve literally in seconds. He actually enjoyed them, and asked me for more! 

Cell salts taste sweet and dissolve almost instantly in the mouth or in water. I think this is why my son loves to take them.

Homeopathic Medicines are manufactured according to the standards set forth in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.

What conditions do cell salts treat? 

Cell salts are used for many different conditions ranging from intestinal issues, arthritis, infections, and injuries to chronic diseases, emotional disorders, wakefulness, and low energy, and this is just the tip of the iceberg!

How to decipher the different cell salts?

Each one of the cell salts has distinct characteristics, and each one is responsble for certain functions in the body. Let’s look at cell salt #6 with its keynote symptoms.

THE MOST COMMONLY USED ABBREVIATION is followed by its (traditional and chemical name).

KALI PHOS (Kali Phosphoricum; Potassium Phosphate)

Keynote symptoms you may need Kali Phos:

  • Mental/emotional symptoms predominate—nervous tension, extreme nervousness, moodiness
  • Anxiety, brain fatigue, irritability, temper-tantrums, sleeplessness, dizziness, nervous asthma
  • Feel as if, "I'm too tired to rest."
  • Easily bleeding gums

This is just an example of what one cell salt can treat…there are 12 to choose from, along with Bioplasma.

Where to begin when using cell salts?

When deciding which cell salt to use, you have several options. One option is taking one single cell salt, an option often used to treat individualized symptoms. A second option is taking a combination of cell salts, often used more for treating multiple symptoms, or common ailments and conditions. Your third option is taking Bioplasma, which is a combination of all 12 cell salts and is meant for overall cell support and maintenance. Many people like to take Bioplasma along with a specific cell salt, depending on what they're treating.

Take a look at each individual cell salt to learn about its beneficial therapeutic ability.

Cell Salt #1: Calcarea Fluorica (Calc Fluor)

Cell Salt #2: Calcarea Phosphoricum (Calc Phos) 

Cell Salt #3: Calcarea Sulphuricum (Calc Sulph)

Cell Salt #4: Ferrum Phosphoricum (Ferrum Phos) 

Cell Salt #5: Kali Muriaticum (Kali Mur)

Cell Salt #6: Kali Phosphoricum (Kali Phos)

Cell Salt #7: Kali Sulpharicum (Kali Sulph)

Cell Salt #8: Magnesium Phosphate (Mag Phos)

Cell Salt #9: Natrum Muriaticum (Nat Mur)

Cell Salt #10: Natrum Phosphoricum (Nat Phos) 

Cell Salt #11: Natrum Sulphuricum (Nat Sulph) 

Cell Salt #12: Silicea

For complete details on each of the Cell Salts, check out our Hyland's Cell Salt Guide.

What are the potency of cell salts?

Cell salts are in homeopathic doses meaning the mineral salt is diluted so many times it contains only a tiny, tiny amount of the original product. Get this…in homeopathy, the more dilute the substance, the more powerful of an effect it has on the body. Weird, huh? Cell salts come in different potencies (strengths) with the most commonly used potency being 6X. The "X" refers to the Roman numeral 10; 6X is one part in ten, repeated six times.  

If you know of any effective cell salt combinations, feel free to pass them along and share your experiences with others.

Bottom Line:   Cell salts are safe, natural, and effective. It may take some experimenting to get the right combo. Give them a try!

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 #10: Natrum Phosphoricum (Nat Phos)

Always popping antacids? Do you have inflammed, achy joints? Try Nat Phos! Nat Phos is number ten of twelve cell salts.

Where is Nat Phos found?

It is found primarily in the nerves, muscles, joints and digestive organs.

How can Nat Phos help you? 

ANTACID

This remedy's key function is to act as an antacid and to maintain the acid-base balance of the body. It makes sense to use this remedy if suffering from heartburn, indigestion, gas, upset stomach and gastric acid reflux. Those who need Nat Phos suffer from pain and acidity in the stomach after eating and don't tolerate many foods such as milk, fats, and sweets. It can also be used for colicy infants who vomit curdled milk after eating.

ABSORPTION

Nat Phos can also help with overall nutritional status by improving the absorption of fats and other nutrients from the diet. 

JOINTS

With a deficiency of Nat Phos, an acidic environment can develop in the body with resulting inflammation, stiffness and swelling of the joints, gout and other rheumatic ailments.

OTHER USES

Consider using this remedy for headaches on the top of the head, crusty eyelids upon waking, painful eyes, morning sickness, chronic constipation, nausea, a yellow coated tongue, and muscle soreness caused by lactic acid buildup.

EMOTIONAL SYMPTOMS   

An acidic state can also cause effect your brain and consequently cause much emotional upset. Consider giving this remedy to someone who is angry, jealous, envious, hateful and even violent to help in easing these strong negative emotions.

Cell Salt #9: Natrum Muriaticum (Nat Mur)

Nat Mur, otherwise known as Sodium Chloride and table salt, is the ninth of twelve cell salts.

Where is Nat Mur found?

It is found in all bodily fluids and is important for the proper functioning of mucus membranes. It's also found in your skin.

How can Nat Mur help you?

WATER BALANCE or DRYNESS

Nat Mur is the master regulator of fluids moving in and out of every cell. The water balance of people needing Nat mur is disturbed. A deficiency in Nat Mur can cause either excessive dryness or excessive moisture in the body. Examples of dryness include: in the mouth with a corresponding big thirst; dry lips; cracked finger tips; dry bowels which become constipated. 

WATER BALANCE or EXCESS WATER

With excessive water, think of using this remedy for conditions such as greasy skin, production of thin clear mucus, swelling, edema, and excess salivation. 

COUGH/COLD

Nat Mur is indicated in the early stages of a dry cough and for colds with watery or clear but thick, eggwhite-like mucus.

ANTIHISTAMINE

Nat Mur can act as an antihistamine and is useful in the treatment of allergies and hay fever.

MOUTH

This is an excellent remedy for cold sores (herpes) on the lips and around the mouth, and also for blisters on the tip of the tongue, and/or painful mouth ulcers.

INSECT BITES

This remedy can also be applied topically to insect bites. Topical application of cell salts is effective. You can dissolve the tablets in a bit of water and apply the resulting paste with a cotton swab to the affected area.

NUTRITION

A deficiency in Nat Mur is often accompanied by an increased craving for salt or salty foods and eating such foods most often does not satisfy the craving.

BACK PAIN

A person needing Nat Mur may get back pain that is better when lying on a hard surface, like the floor.

EMOTIONS

Nat Mur is considered a major grief remedy on the emotional level. Nat Mur may help the person who has recently had a significant loss—of a loved one, a job, or a dream, for example—and hasn’t mourned or healed. The person holds in their tears, and this causes all sorts of problems from headaches to insomnia. Grief in children of divorced parents. They cry in bed by themselves, never crying in front of anyone.
