How can tissue salts help in Pregnancy


Please see a homeopath before taking any tissue (cell) salts.

Your homeopath will design a specific protocol of when and how to take tissue salts during pregnancy.


If taken at first trimester it prevents miscarriages, and taken during last trimester gives easy birth and normal puerperium.


Increases contractile and coordinated power of uterine muscles, and improves general health of baby and mother. 


Tissue Salts are widely available. They are sold as soft tablets that melt in the mouth. Care needs to be taken not to contaminate them by touching them in the tube (tip the correct amount into the lid) or storing them with strong smelling products such as essential oils.

Tissue salts are known as a half way house between nutritional supplements and homeopathy. They are a range of twelve of the most common mineral tissue salts found in the human body and critical for health maintenance. They replace deficient minerals in a microscopic form which are absorbed directly in the mouth. They have a slight homeopathic effect due to their preparation being so close to that of homeopathic remedies.  Although, unlike homeopathic remedies that contain a minute amount of the original substances, rather than treating ‘’like with like’’ (homeopathy), these remedies correct imbalances or deficiencies in the body’s cell nutrition, helping the body restore itself to health.

Tissue salts are prepared as single individual remedies or they are also prepared in combinations of tissue salts for different complaints. These different combinations of tissue salts are for a wide range of ailments, which being partly homeopathic and partly micro-nutrient is considered safe for both pregnant women and children. They can also be taken with other medications. There are no instant cures using tissue salts as they gradually restore the body to its natural balance.
