I thought I would post this link. http://schuessler-cell-salts.com/list/index.htm It's a different way to give your body the minerals that it might need. There is also a facial diagnosis that Schuessler used to determine which cell salt you need at any particular time. At one point I felt that I needed so many that I just took the Bioplasma, which is a combination of all 12. It's more economical that way, but not as precise.
