Tissue Salt vs Homeopathic Dose

Hoping someone can shed some light on dosing/use of tissue salts vs 6C and up.
I have no doubt that Kali Sulph is needed for multiple skin problems and nerves/depression. Started on cell salt 6X and symptoms got worse, but subsided with no lasting improvement. Wonder if the more course dose creating this result indicates a need for a more traditional homeopathic dose..skin issues are chronic in varying degree for over 30 years-200C perhaps? OR, the tissue salt taken more frequently? Any insight or personal experience greatly appreciated...Thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Alone, the tissue salts are not curative. They are palliative or complementary at best.

They have a role in supplementation though.

Imo, cure in chronics can't be achieved without potentized remedies and that too through single remedy classical prescribing.

Even if you are a homeopath, you would have a difficult time
finding the right remedies for yourself on a chronic case.
That is bc people cannot be objective enough to treat

You need to either put your case on here or go to a homeopath
in person or via skype or phone. Chronic skin problems take
some time to cure and you could go thru several remedies
addressing layers and need to be monitored by someone
with experience.

I disagree with what Fitness said about the salts not
being curative. I have found them curative, especially
if people take them at the start of something, they
can bring you back into balance, as they work
on the cell metabolism.

Thank you for your reply.

I take Hyland Bioplasma routinely. If taking the kali sulph as a remedy would you suggest suspending the use of the Kali sulph cell salt/bioplasma during treatment? I have never had the large scale formation on my skin except during the cell salt use, which is what pointed me in this direction. Remember my aunt having aggravations from a Magnesium supplement when she needed a remedy containing the Mag. Anyway, I had a severe bronchitis when my father was dying that required extensive Pulsatilla & Silica to which it and my mentals responded brilliantly. Shortly after, my skin got worse again after years of relatively minimal symptoms. I assumed at that time was just stress. With no or little improvement after years of efforts (including diet, exercise and well selected remedies that acted for short time only and did not provide complete relief), I started looking for other ways to manage. I began taking cell salts as part of the program & then had this flare with the added feature of the large peeling scales. The Kali Sulph fits most facets of my picture & I am truly hopeful after about two years of frustration with my oozing, itching and flaking. I'd like to get the dosing right sooner than later as the dark state of mind that came with scales and ooze was hard to bear.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Don't take bioplasma along with a salt.With salts and with bioplasma you are
to do 3 weeks on and one week off. Or 5 days and weekends off.

I think you need a second opinion on what to take. Personally I would not
take bioplasma or a cell salt for more than a few weeks, if it does not take
care of things by that time, then I would stop self treating and get other

Thank you for your thoughtful replies.
I am in the deep south where homeopathy is nearly a four letter word. Have considered phone consults/skype but were cost prohibitive for the level of experience I would want. I am not a certified homeopath, but have studied it pretty extensively for 19 years. I have a considerable library & great passion. I do fully acknowledge your point regarding objectivity, but like so many others, I have to make due with the half loaf! Overall, I have been able to do well by my family and myself. Accutes are handled with increasing ease and usually great success. As you point out, the skin is a stickier wicket and my issues began around age 11 or so, if I recall correctly. Def between 10 and 13...so, at age 43 I'd have to say they are pretty chronic!! :p I have had periods of nearly perfect skin and scalp and at its worst, times where the psoriasis engulfed not only my scalp, but ears and neck/face margins. Currently, my head is moderate at the worst, but I have a miserable situation on my chest, the worst site of the oozing, burning, itching and scales.
I know there is a divide on the thinking regarding cell salts as a cure and personally believe that they can be used that way as well, but maybe not for an issue this chronic? My experience is pointing me in the direction of the 200C for a few doses; I primarily wonder if I should suspend the Bioplasma and perhaps take the other cell salts PRN individually while the KaliSulph acts.
To ease your mind, I have determined to find a way to connect with a qualified homeopath should this not be successful. I am, however, very hopeful since the entire picture seems to be such a good fit and nothing is frankly contradicting. Thank you so much :)

Thank you Simone! You replied while I was writing. This is the answer that I had expected regarding salts with the remedy.
I shall post the update soon. =)

Shining Light,

Good luck with this-I hear you about the South and that
goes for a large part of Mid West as well..(lol)

The problem with what you are asking here, is that
every homeopath, and every person on here whether
they are a homeopath or not, is going to have their own
idea of what you should be doing and it won't be
what you are thinking of, and even if 3 people on here
were to see your information from the form, they would
all have different prescriptions from each other and you.

If it were a simple question that would be different.
Guess that is why homeopathy is called an art and a science,
one homeopath on here described it as if two people were
trying to paint on the same canvas.
