How to use Tissue Salts (Cell Salts) in Pregnancy

By Kirsty Richards

The twelve tissue-salts are the body’s architects, designers, builders, and maintenance engineers. They weave the very pattern of life and their harmonious functioning is essential to that happy, balanced state we call HEALTH – from the Biochemic Handbook  

During pregnancy, the baby requires nutrients which it gets at the expense of the mother. Tissue salts are non-toxic and completely safe to use during pregnancy. 

About the individual salts 

Calc Fluor is excellent for bone development and is an important component of connective tissue, improving its elasticity. This quality makes it helpful in the prevention of stretch marks. It also supports the circulatory system, therefore helping to prevent varicose veins and haemorrhoids. 

Mag Phos is known as the ‘homeopathic aspirin’ due to its affinity for the nerves and muscles. It can greatly reduce the chance of heartburn and cramps. 

Ferrum Phos aids the oxygenation of the blood and helps prevent the need for extra iron, especially towards the end of a pregnancy when many women become anaemic. Prescription iron tablets commonly lead to uncomfortable constipation, so if you can keep your iron levels up naturally, you can hopefully avoid the need for them. 

Mag Phos is known as the ‘homeopathic aspirin’ due to its affinity for the nerves and muscles. It can greatly reduce the chance of heartburn and cramps. 

Nat Mur influences the water balance of the body. Using this cell salt helps to balance all the fluids in the body lessening the likelihood of swollen ankles and fingers. It also helps to maintain even blood pressure and supports the nerves and muscles. 

Silica is a vital constituent of hair, nails, teeth, and skin. It contributes to the overall strength of both mother and baby.
