The Twelve Biochemic Tissue Remedies

The number 12 is a rather oft-used number. It makes one dozen. There were twelve apostles, twelve tribes of Israel, there are twelve days of Christmas. There are twelve hours on a clock or watch, twelve months in a year, twelve astrological sun signs. It has often been referred to as a sublime number with a perfect number of divisors and most religions consider it an important number.


The Biochemic or Tissue remedies number twelve as well. Separately, they each have their specific functions. Together, they work as one to ensure that the human body functions to its optimum capacity.


Here’s a quick look at their main functions within the human body.

Calc Fluor or Calcarea Fluoricum (Calcium fluoride)

Keeps the muscles and skin elastic and protects bones and teeth

Calc Sulph or Calcarea Sulphuricum (Calcium sulphate)

Keeps the blood pure

Calc Phos or Calcarea Phosphoricum (Calcium phosphate)

Keeps bones and teeth healthy

Kali Phos or Kalium Phosphoricum (Potassium phosphate)

Keeps the brain and nerves healthy

Kali Mur or Kali Muriaticum (Potassium chloride)

Conditions the blood and prevents congestion

Kali Sulph or Kalium Sulphuricum (Potassium sulphate)

Exchanges the oxygen in the cells and keeps the skin clear

Ferr Phos or Ferrum Phosphoricum (Iron phosphate)

Carries oxygen to every part of the body

Mag Phos or Magnesium Phosphoricum (Magnesium phosphate)

Acts as an anti-spasmodic

Nat Phos or Natrum Phosphoricum (Sodium phosphate)

Neutralises the acid in the stomach

Nat Sulph or Natrum Sulphuricum (Sodium sulphate)

Keeps the liver functioning well

Nat Mur or Natrum Muriaticum (Sodium chloride)

Distributes water and moisturises

Silicea (Silicon Dioxide)

Cleans the blood and prevents abscesses




You might just need one tissue remedy for a particular problem or you might need two or more at the same time. They are sold separately as well as in combination. You can order them online and treat yourself. Like we told you earlier in the last hub, they are absolutely harmless and only get absorbed if you need it.

What is great about these cell salts is that they open the door to self treatment – and there’s no harm done if you mis-diagnose your symptoms. You can just try again. Where you’ll find almost immediate positive results are with children and pets. They don’t have preconceived notions about medicine – no ‘Will it, won’t it work?’ No doubts like ‘’How can a few sugar pills work on MY complicated health problems for Pete’s sake!’ Sometimes, in a few seconds, you’ll see a problem disappear. Colic and cramps especially get immediate relief. Every house could do with the addition of these twelve tissue remedies or cell salts in their medicine cabinets.

Interesting hub Shalini A few questions: 1. Has any research been done in terms of pure chemistry, to match the professed qualities eg Common Salt comes from Sodium Chloride. Is there anything known in the world of chemistry that says NaCl has moisturising qualities? I am asking this just out of interest. If you are espousing this, I am willing to believe it 2. Can one get these from pharmacies or are they only available online? Thanks for another well-researched work

Hi Sabu - thanks for reading. No, not enough research has been done. A later hub - still to come will talk about how these titrations are made - it isn't common salt as is but a highly diluted form. It's available in all the homeopathic shops in Pune :)

Hmm can't help wondering if one of these would be good for getting rid of high cholesterol, Kali Mur or Kali Muriaticum (Potassium chloride) maybe?

Hi Brian - more detailed hubs coming up :) I have found that when it is genetic, garlic and flaxseed seem to help more than a Kali Mur-Nat Sulph mixture.

However it seems it takes time for the body to absorb and to actually see the results....but i am not speaking of the salts you talk about...just herbs I take...G-Ma :O) Hugs

How true G-Ma - unfortunately everyone wants quick fix remedies today! Herbs are such wonderful cures from Nature!

If more people knew about and used natural substances like tissue remedies, Big Pharma (and many doctors) would go out of business.

13 years back I was diagnosed with class of Aplastic Anemia called " Myelodysplastic Syndrom Refrectory Aneamia" which has no treatment allopathy. Median life is only 3-5 years. I have survived with Alternate treatments like Tibetan Medicines and Acupuncture!! Folks have faith and believe in power of alternate medicines...
