Dr William Schussler from Germany investigated, that when any living tissue is burned, only mineral ash remains; therefor minerals must represent the basic inorganic building blocks and when different organs and tissues of the body are analysed for their natural content, they contain different minerals and different proportions. He concluded that minerals, in their different proportions must therefor be vital to the proper functioning of the body.
Schussler saltz contains dilutions of minerals – they call it homeopathic quantity, however there is up until now a discussion if the original Schussler saltz are homeopathic or not, as Schussler himself claimed that his system was unique and bore no relationship to homeopathy – which I subscribe from my investigations from information nowadays. In the Netherlands there is one firm that prepares the Schussler Salts following this original preparation method, they call them Vitazouten (VitaSalts) and do not fall under the Homeopathic legislation. However, the Schussler Salts (1873) contains infinitesimal amounts of mineral substance (about 1:1,000,000) where the Celloid Mineral Therapy (1938) – pioneered by the Australian naturopath Maurice Blackmore – contains tablets in physiologically active doses, which are developped in an area in which technical information on physicologically active nutrients was rapidly increasing.
The Schussler Salts are based on the theory that the re-astablishing of the mineral equilibrium can be done with the administration of the ‘homeopathic’ (or diluted) quantity. For example one takes the dilution and from here, the body will be able to absorb the whole mineral from the food again. Now if for example the food is lacking this certain mineral or one is eating different food, this mineral will not be absorbed in the amount that the body may need and so, it may not be enough or one need to take a lot of these diluted tablets. So one could say that the Celloid Minerals are more aligned with the time where in we live at the moment and the lack of minerals that is found in our food and in the soil in general, this together with the accumulation of the mind within our body and the compressed processes that we walk through as human beings and ofcourse our busy lifestyles, but also that it depends on the amount of shortcoming that the body is showing, where one can decide to take higher doses (Celloid) to really supply the physical lack, or smaller doses (Schussler) used as a more subtile mind-physical support.
