Dr. Schüssler Biochemistry method
Dr. Schüssler (1821-1898) was a doctor and homeopath this theory was that every sickness is related with a mineral deficiency. These illnesses can be healed through salts, he created 12 different mineral salts this method he called biochemistry.
The principle is similar to homeopathy but the content is different. The 12 salts (Nr.1 - Nr.12) contain different minerals for different purposes.
They come in tablet form (lactose), Dilution (diluted in alcohol), beads (globuli) or for external use: creams, gels, shower gels and bathing salts.
Homeopathy was created by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He created this system through information that he gained from tests that were done on healthy persons and himself. He discovered that through this method he could wakeup a sickness in a healthy person and in the same way he could heal a sick person. In 1800 he was able to present his method of treatment.
The homeopathy is based on potency, which means that every substance is diluted with lactose or alcohol. Homeopathy teaches us that the higher the potency the stronger the effect.
