Cell salts for Pregnancy

If you reduce the cells in your body to ashes, what remains is 12 simple mineral salts (Dr Schuessler). The balance of these mineral salts is essential for optimal health. They are the 12 cell salts (also known as tissue salts).

Modern life brings with it a lot of stress and anxieties. These don’t only have an effect on our emotional wellbeing, they also deplete our bodies of these mineral salts that it needs to be healthy.

Mineral salts are responsible for structural and regulatory functions in the body. Structural functions involve building the structure of bones and soft tissue, and regulatory functions include nerve transmission and optimising the functions of the blood.

During pregnancy the demands on your body increases, and of course you want to ensure optimal development of your baby. Cell salts can help to boost both of these areas.
