Schuessler Cell Salts for Bone Health
How to Use Natural Mineral Remedies to Help Increase Bone Density
Adding years and experience to our life means gaining more confidence and learning to focus on what truly matters. It also demands paying heightened attention to changes in our bodies, particularly the health of our bones, muscles, and joints. Exercise and a healthy diet help combat common loss of strength and flexibility, and a positive attitude goes a long way toward helping us age gracefully and remain healthy and active. But — did you know? — there are natural remedies, specifically three tissue salts, that help fight bone loss, and they are worth embracing and sharing with family and friends.

Holistic Ways to Deal with Low Bone Mass
Osteopenia, more commonly known as "low bone mass," and osteoporosis or "bone loss" affect millions of older adults, particularly women, in the United States and around the world. Luckily, natural ways exist to help sustain bone density. Calcium, vitamin D, weight-bearing exercises, and getting more sleep are commonly cited as the best techniques to build bones and help counteract the effects of aging. Some shrinkage is natural, but as the years add up, most people are aware that their bodies are no longer as physically fit as they once were, and bone loss makes us especially vulnerable to falls and fractures.
Complementary and alternative healthcare practitioners specifically recommend daily doses of three Schuessler cell salts — Calcarea Fluorica #1, Calcarea Phosphorica #2, and Silicea #3 — as a natural measure against brittle bones and bone deterioration.
In the 19th Century, Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler discovered that human cells are made up of distinct mineral compounds, and he concluded that an imbalance in cell composition could be the underlying cause of many diseases. Today, Schuessler salts are recommended by naturopaths and holistic health practitioners around the world, and the three specific cell salts for bone health are widely shared in the natural health community.
Recommended Three Cell Salts Protocol for Stronger Bones
The preferred protocol for addressing osteoporosis and osteopenia with tissue salts involves taking Calc Fluor, Calc Phos, and Silicea three times daily. Take 2 squirts of each liquid mineral spray three times a day directly in the mouth or mix them in a small glass of water. It is often recommended to take them between meals or 5 minutes before or after eating so they can be best absorbed by the mucous membranes in the mouth. Feel free to take breaks of a few days up to a week or to alternate them with other cell salts therapies, but keep returning to taking the bone cell salts for continued support. Work with your doctor and share your natural health protocol with your healthcare provider.
What is also appreciated by many fans of Schuessler cell salts is that the three mineral compounds have a beneficial effect on other body parts and functions as well, particularly healthy skin, teeth, hair, and nails.
More Information about the Three Bone Health Cell Salts
Calcarea Fluorica — Cell Salt #1 in Dr. Schuessler's Biochemic Therapy
Called the elasticity cell salt, Calc Fluor is instrumental in restoring body tissues, including the periosteum or hard outer shell of bones, blood vessels, muscles, and the skin. It is needed when tissues have become too relaxed or too rigid and helps bring back their shape.
Calcarea Fluorica #1
Calcarea Phosphorica — Cell Salt #2 in Dr. Schuessler's Biochemic Therapy
Calc Phos supports calcium absorption and the health of the compact part of the bone, tooth dentin, and spine. It also relieves muscle strain and spasms and is often recommended as a general restorative by integrative health specialists. In addition, Calc Phos supports the metabolism and digestive systems, both of which are important for older adults.
Calcarea Phosphorica #2
Silicea — Cell Salt #12 in Dr. Schuessler's Biochemic Therapy
Silicea, or Silica, is a tough mineral found in quartz that provides strength and improves collagen production which is found in bones, cartilage, ligaments, muscles, and in our skin. Homeopathically prepared, Silica additionally supports healthy mucus and veins and helps deal with excess perspiration, sweaty toes, and athlete’s foot.

More Natural Ways to Promote Strong Bones
While we continue to recommend exercise, especially jogging, hiking, and stair climbing, as a way to maintain strength and healthy bones throughout life, there are also certain foods that are especially high in beneficial calcium and vitamins for your bones.
Cell salts support your body during exercise and help you absorb more minerals and vitamins from the food you eat. Dairy foods are high on the list, of course, but dark green, leafy vegetables like kale, collard, and turnip greens, and Chinese cabbage can also help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Sweet potatoes, grapefruit, orange juice, figs, prunes, tofu, almonds, and molasses are also great sources of the vitamins and minerals that promote bone health. Finally, fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, is good to add to your diet for many health reasons including bone density.
