Homoeopaths may use Tissue Salts as physiological support either as a stand alone form of treatment or to work along side a homoeopathic constitutional treatment. John Damonte recommends the following program to support and strengthen a pregnant woman and her growing baby. John suggests one dose of each salt per day to help promote the body's own metabolism.

The Twelve Tissue Salts Discovered and Developed By Dr Schuessler

Each of the Twelve Tissue Salts are naturally occuring in the human body, within our bones, skin, nerves, body fluids, etc. They each perform the role of keeping a particular bodily function running the way it should, so its in balance. Dr Schuesslers theory suggests that our bodies ability to assimulate and excrete the nutrition we receive is impaired if one of the Tissue Salts is deficient. Cell nutrition can be restored and cellular metabolism normalised by taking the required Tissue Salts.They are ideal to use leading up to, during pregnancy, and breast feeding as they are micro doses of the 12 essential minerals so are gentle enough yet powerful enough to address the increased physiological needs at this important time. The developement of a new life places high demand on the body which creates the need for an increased supply of mineral salts and our diets do not usually provide enough mineral salts during this period. As they are micro doses any of the Twelve Tissue salts are considered as safe enough to be taken alongside other medications and vitamins and minerals throughout the pregnancy and breastfeeding period. Please see below the Twelve Tissue Salts.
