Schwabe's Biochemic Systems of Treatment

The biochemical therapy makes use of the basic twelve Dr. Schüssler Salts which were all discovered by Dr. Schuessler himself. Schuessler had theorised that these mineral salts were vital for the normal functioning of the body and health. He had concluded further that deficiencies in any of these tissue salts would lead to dysfunction and illness. Consequently, treatment of this mineral imbalance in the body by tissue salts must be an essential factor for restoring health.

Being chemically pure salts, homogenous to the cell minerals in the human body, the Dr. Schüssler Salts are physiologically and chemically in close relation to them. So, they help to reorganise a disturbed molecular motion or cure an imbalance of the respective minerals in the cells, thus restoring the health of the individual.

The Dr. Schüssler Salts have been consecutively numbered from one to twelve according to the alphabetical line of their active substances.

The exception to this rule, Calcium sulfuricum, lists as number 12. It had also been discovered by Schuessler himself, but its value as a therapeutic agent was to be found out later by his followers.

The principal aim of the Dr. Schüssler Salts is not to supply the body with the deficient minerals i.e. replace deficient substances, but to stimulate the body to harmonize the disturbances in the distribution and compensated for mal-absorption of minerals. The Dr. Schüssler Salts help to activate healing processes thus allowing regeneration and stabilisation the body’s health. Successful treatment depends on the use of the correct mineral salt, although applying the wrong Dr. Schüssler Salt will not do any harm.

Biochemic remedies are not selected according to the principle of similarity like homeopathic remedies, but several symptoms have been assigned to each Dr. Schüssler Salt. The salts cure disturbances of certain associated functions within the body.

Besides this, each Dr. Schüssler Salt has been assigned to different tissues and organs, consequently deficiencies of minerals in these tissues or organs indicate the respective salt for therapy.

Facial analysis is another useful aid for finding the right medicine. It was Schuessler himself who noticed that changes in the colour and brightness of the patient’s complexion indicate the relevant salt. For example magnesium phosphoricum is indicated by red blotches on the cheeks. During the past hundred years, the followers of Dr. Schuessler continued to develop and refine facial diagnostics.

Signs of deficiency may be diagnosed not only in the face, but also by a close examination the patient’s hair, feet, toenails and fingernails.

As Schuessler had postulated, the salts must reach the diseased cells directly. Therefore he decided to have them manufactured and potentized the just same way as homeopathic single remedies. Both homeopathic and biochemic single remedies are produced in compliance with the methods of the German Homeopathic Pharmacopeia.

The Dr. Schüssler Salts are stepwise diluted and triturated with lactose powder. The respective substance is diluted in steps of 1:10, i.e. one part of the substance to nine parts of the dilution medium. This decimal dilution is identical to the homeopathic single remedies marked with a “D” or “X”.

Dr. Schüssler Salts are available as tablets in 3X, 6X, 12X, 30X and 200X potencies. The most popular potency is 6X with the exception of the salts 1, 3 and 11 which are commonly used in 12X potency.

Besides the classical presentation as tablets the Dr. Schüssler Salts are also available as special preparations for topic application.

Until today treatment with the Dr. Schüssler Salts is a widely used and a very successful therapy besides homeopathy.
