Biochemical salts or homeopathic remedium?!?

Can anyone help me answering one quoestion: What is the difference between Nat muriaticum D12 Schuessler salt and Nat muriaticum 15 CH homeopathic remedium?? I would like to use it for skin problmes, for dry eczema. Nat muriaticum is very similar with a lot of other traits which extist, or existed but I would choice biochemical salts instead of homeopathy because there are not really acute symptoms except skin problems. I thought that Schuessler salts are not so 'severe' like homeopathy. But maybe homeopathy is faster in effect than salts??
Please let me clarify some questons abaut this.
Thanks for answers!

Re: cell salts From PANKAJ VARMA on 2003-09-09


Got to keep my promise with you.


Also known as 12 TISSUE REMEDIES. The theory was proponded by Dr. WILHELM HEINRICH SCHUSSLER in a Medical Journal in Germany in the year 1873.

Although , some research on the topic had been done by others as well from 1832 onwards.

This branch of Homeopathy is known as Bio-chemistry. Though, over the years some homeopaths refused to accept it as part of Homeopathy.

It is generally accepted as a branch of homeopathy >>> in many ways an effective branch.


Briefly, the concept is that everything in the human body is made from cells which keep renewing themselves in a specified time span.

Twelve in-organic salts make the cells or contribute to the formation/cleansing of the blood in the body. Apart from the organic matter we consume as food.

Deficiency of one or a combination of more than one of the salts leads to disease. By providing the necessary salt/ combination of salts >>>out of the 12 >>> to the body results in elemination of the disease.

The salts also act as preventives.


12. SILICEA (made from sand)

The system is effective if disease is detected early and corrective measures taken promptly.

Also effective as a preventive for disease.

You might have seen, in may of my posts on this Message Board, I have suggested the use of some cell salt or the other or a combination.

Many companies market the combinations known as 28 CELL SALT COMBINATIONS for specific states of the human body. Example >>> for Fever combination No. 11. Skin disorders No. 20 .... like that !

If you wish to go into a depth of the Cell salt theory and practice>>>> please read... THE TWELVE TISSUE REMEDIES OF SCHUSSLER by BOERICKE & DEWEY.

Many websites on Homepathy also give a detailed account of the Cell Salts and the Combinations.

Generally speaking:

Homeopathic med of the same substance has a higher potency in comparison to the bio-chemic med.

The original substance from which the two meds are made (Natrum Mur in your example)is the same. Potency differs.

Thank you Pankaj! A was affraid that nobody wants to answer me, but you didn't left me! :)

I appreciate you spending time for answers!!

Our sleep and breastfeeding problem is quite on best way to resolution! We use Bach's flower therapy for one month, you remember we took Pulsatilla 200 and since 2 weeks we had all night sleepings!!! Only once, at night, I breastfeed my daughter, this is also a good result. Only skin does not want to heal. Her back of hand, on wrists is all the time in inflamation, which is ameliorated sometimes, but not totaly, and eruption reapear again and again. I didn't wanted to repeat Pulsatilla 200, but maybe Lycopodium will be next remedium. Now I give her Schuesslers's salts: Kal sulf, Calc phosh, and Silicea (recommened by a pharmacist whom we seen recently.) The good in wrong is that inflamation it is no more itchy.
I have big hopes abaut Schuesler's salts, and I think this method would be enough and good for us if the BEST remedy it would be given.
That's why I've asked for comparison, because I decided to study within my modest limits, possible alternatives regarding skin problems....

Thanks God other problem we do not have... :)

I had suggested to you a dose of Sulphur. However, your estimation was that Pulsatilla was doing the job of clearing up the skin.

I still feel a dose of Sulphur 200 will do the job. (this wil work fastest in my opinion).

Later , you can give the bio - chemic combination for further improvement.

I give her yestarday one dose of Sulph 200.
In the evening there was signs of aggravation. Although recently her skin was not itching, last evening yes, again.
Retourned for this nigt 'frequent awakenings'... There was not so dramatically, but compared with the fact that she is sleeping all the night lately, it was noticable that she awakened... ...
Her mood is a little bit other, it seems a bit peevish compared with last week for example.

Today it seems that it is better 10% the skin.

I'm sceptical abaut Sulph, althought it helped her skin problem definitely, but modalities are controversal... it is worse after bathing, BUT she LIKES BATHING!!! (Maybe that is the cause for now.. we left her bathing, and it dried her skin, whereas we use moisturises...)

Now I'm waiting. Let's see.
Anyway: thanks Pankaj! :)
