Jayne’s INpowered Handbook: Featuring Homeopathic Remedies and Cell Salts for Everyday Use
Dr. Jayne Marquis, ND, HOM
The first chapter of this amazing and practical book deals with cell salts, a subject about which I knew nothing but was always curious. Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler made a systematic study of the body’s mineral compounds after cremation and came up with twelve inorganic mineral salts common to all cells and tissues. The cell salts are prepared in the same manner as homeopathic remedies but are prescribed not on the basis of “like cures like” as in homeopathy, but rather to correct deficiencies in mineral balance. For example, a diagnosis of anemia calls for Ferrum phosphoricum (iron phosphate) to stimulate the body to assimilate iron.
After a brief introduction, Dr. Marquis devotes one page to each of the twelve salts, providing a concise list of what each cell salt is good for. For example, Kali muriaticum (potassium chloride) is the remedy of choice for swollen glands and sore throats; Magnesia phosphorica for cramps, tension headaches and nerve relaxation.
Next, Dr. Marquis tackles the homeopathic remedies with a clear introductory explanation and then a page for each of seventeen remedies.
Subsequent chapters explain dosages and frequencies for the cell salts and homeopathic remedies, including indications that the remedy or cell salt is working.
Marquis recommends having the twelve cell salts and the seventeen basic homeopathic remedies on hand as a kit, so you will be ready for all emergencies.
The second half of the book lists common ailments alphabetically and the cell salt remedies for both the acute and healing phases of the illness.
A final section briefly discusses other therapies, such as breathing, earthing, exercise and hot-cold water therapy.
The only disappointment is a page on fiber consumption, with no warnings on the dangers of improperly prepared beans and lentils. My suggestion for future issues is a page or two on the Wise Traditions diet.
Still, this book can serve as an easy-to-use, invaluable reference for home health care in an era when hospitals and doctors’ offices have morphed into places of danger, to be avoided in all but the most extreme circumstances.
Interest in and use of homeopathy is increasing. Jayne’s INpowered Handbook will help you join the rising number of conscientious consumers choosing effective, non-toxic homeopathy over toxic pharmaceutical drugs. The thumb is up!
