E-Class 34 – Tissue Salts Review
This week we review the Concepts and the Minerals that you have learnt.
Your references for this week are
- Administration and Introduction
- The Clinical Science of Biochemic Medicine Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4
Go through your notes from Eclass 1 and Eclass 2 and the Admin and Introduction Manuals and make sure you understand the key points.
Five Basic Principles
There are five Basic Principles in Biochemistry that guide your prescribing. If the body’s nutrition is out of balance, it affects the function of the cells. What are those five basic principles?
What Is osmosis?
The key thing to remember here is that osmosis is the movement of water across a semipermeable membrane from a low concentration of solutes to a high concentration of solutes.
Cations and Anion pairing
Go through your manual and make sure you understand the cations, anions and why the pairing is important.
Why are tissue Salts in fine dilution?
Why is this important?
How are they prepared?
How is Biochemistry different from Homoeopathy?
Arndt Shulz Law
What is the Arndt Shulz Law and why is it important when prescribing Tissue Salts.
Role of Minerals in the body
Although minerals are essential for thousands of functions in the body, they can be categorised into 4 basic roles:
What are the Role of Minerals in the body?
What are the 10 elements of Biochemistry?
Many of the elements play many different functions in the body. Give examples of Minerals for each of 4 roles within the body.
Summary of the 12 Tissue Salts
What are the 12 Tissue Salts?
What are the main functions of each Tissue Salts in the body?
What is one key facial sign for each mineral?
What is one example of a treatment using each mineral?
What is an easy way for you to remember the main functions of each of the minerals and their main roles? If you have a general understanding of each mineral and its role in the body, it makes it much easier to prescribe, and work out what is needed.
What is an easy way for you to remember the order of each of the Tissue Salts (hint: look at the list order of the first and second names of each tissue salt alphabetically, with the exception of Calc Sulph? Is there something in the pattern that helps you remember?)
What information is important to you when deciding which Tissue Salts to prescribe to your client?
What Contraindications, if any, are there for each Tissue Salt?
What is the main function of each of the Sulphur Minerals?
Name each of the Sodium Minerals and summarise their function in the body.
There are lots more questions I could ask, but hopefully you get the idea. The better your understanding of each of the minerals, and how they are used in the body, the easier It will be not just to sit your exam, but practicing with clients.
Have fun. Make sure you have booked your exam.
I have added some quizzes for you to test your knowledge.
Exercise 1 – Complete the questions outlined above
Exercise 2 – watch the video at Review – Principles and Remedies and complete the quizes.
We look at The difference between starting your practice and building your business with Tissue Salts
See you then.
