“Chemistry of the Living Tissues – The Twelve
Zodiacal Cell Salts”
The following information is based on the work and research of
Dr George W. Carey and Dr Willheim H. Schuessler.
“You can trace every sickness, every disease, every ailment to a mineral deficiency”
– Dr Linus Pauling
German physician and biochemist Dr. Wilheim H. Scheussler identified twelve inorganic minerals present in each cell.  These minerals include forms of calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, silica and sodium. These essential salts act as catalysts for cellular bio-chemical processes within the human body. Schuessler proposed that illness was related to a deficiency in one or more of these twelve major mineral substances and when a deficiency is corrected normal cellular function and health is restored. As a Physicist, specialising in homeopathic biochemistry Scheussler devoted many years into the development of the Schuessler tissue salts. Throughout years of research Schuessler identified that it was the compositions of theses minerals which determined cellular function and differentiation. Therefore it is clear and well proven that a balance of these twelve bio-salts are a vital component required for healthy cellular activity and homeostasis.
“The twelve mineral salts are, in a very real sense, the material basis of the organs and tissues of the body and are absolutely essential to their integrity of structure and functional activity. Experiments prove that the various tissue cells will rapidly disintegrate in the absence of the proper proportion of these salts in the circulating fluid. Whereas the maintenance of this proportion insures healthy growth and perpetual renewal.”
 “These mineral salts, therefore, the physical basis of all healing. Regardless of the school employed, if these are absent from the blood and tissues, no permanent cure is possible.”
                        -Dr. Charles W. Littlefield – analytical chemist
Dr George W. Carey and Inez Eudora Perry adapted Schuesslers ideas into a more complex system of esoteric healing which lays very much in harmony with the homeopathy and alchemical traditions. Carey and Perry suggested that each of these inorganic minerals correspond in vibration to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. As the hermetic axiom “As above, so below, the human body is an epitome of the cosmos therefore the physical and energetic systems of the human body, the tissues and the organs each correspond to one of these signs.
The statement of the Holy Writ, that “man is conceived in sin and bought forth in iniquity” has a three folded meaning: chemical, physiological and astrological.  According to Carey in his book ‘GOD-MAN The word made flesh’, the real meaning is that the human embryo remains nine months within the female reproductive system and during the nine months of gestation the embryo receives and appropriates the creative energies of nine of these salts. Thus falling short three months of completing a solar or ‘soul’ year. The three-month space is the bridge of life and consists of a mineral base foundation.  This is the journey of the ego from the moon to the earth, or conception.  As twelve represents the circle and stands for completion, the human body will always be missing (stones in the temple) cell salts because its period of formation in the womb is only nine months.  Twelve months (12 salts) minus the nine months gestation (9 salts) leaves us with a 90°quadrant of three months where the cellular biosynthesis of these minerals were unable to manifest. These three salts according to Carey are to be supplied after the parting of the umbilical cord. The chemical union of these bio-salts with the organic matter such as lipids, fibrin, albumin etc., forms the various tissues of the body and administers to the physiological needs as represented by the bridge. This bridging allows the cells to respond more harmoniously and completely to the divine energy.
The cell salt corresponding with the sign of the zodiac and function of the body is consumed more rapidly than all the other salt and therefore requiring an extra amount to supply the deficiency caused by the suns influence at that particular time. When someone is under emotional stress people will use up more of the cell salts associated with their Moon sign and south Node of the moon, when these minerals are depleted common symptoms experienced may be anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Identifying and supplementing with the cell salts will strengthens your moon and restore balance.
Understanding vital signs and symptoms of mineral deficiencies and knowing your planetary positions, transits etc. you will be able to identify which cell salts you need to restore optimal health and cellular function. These tissue salts can be applied to assist in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions bacterial, viral and fungal. Common disorders that respond to the tissue salts include colds and flus, gastrointestinal upsets, slow healing wounds, skin disorders, ear and eye infections, headaches, insomnia, and irritability. The cell salts are non-toxic, 100% safe and can be used on all ages. Schuessler Cell salts (Tissue Salts) do contain a small amount of lactose so be mindful to purchase a Tissue salt spray if you are lactose intolerant.

What cell salts might you need and what to look for in a chart?
    1. Full term birth (nine months – cusp to cusp) the majority of cell salt deficiency will be three.
    1. Full-term birth in the middle of a sign, the deficiency will be at least four.
    1. A premature birth will require 4 + salts will be required.
