Cell-Food Salts

The Secret Keys to Transmutation

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

Every now and again, I read something and I think—my thoughts exactly! That’s how I felt when I read the words of Dr. Wilhelm Schüssler, founder of Biochemic Medicine, regarding the twelve cell-food salt remedies: “The sick might be healed with substances that are natural!” [See my Natural Life article from the previous issue on Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficiencies, now archived at] This is an introduction to those cell-food salts, which are still almost a secret among those who are seeking better health.

Dr. Schüssler went on to say: “A connective base and bone-earth are central constituents of bone, such as are found in calcium salts. There can be no cartilage without cartilage salts, nor blood without iron salts, nor salines without potassium-chloride (Kali mur) cell-food salts.” He created Biochemic Medicine, from which we now have “biochemistry,” a term formed from “bios,” the Greek word for life, and “chemistry,” which Webster defines as “that branch of science that treats the composition of substances and the changes that they undergo.”

Who’s our Tribe in This Day and Age?

Time for a Global Perspective

Catherine Nelson, Ph.D.
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

Somewhere deep, very deep inside us is a need for safety in our lives. Perhaps it is in our DNA from living thousands of years on planet Earth. We believe that our safety is determined by our family and our “tribe.” Our ancestors survived trusting that membership in the tribe would help to keep them safe from harm, from attack, from hunger, and so much more—and it often did.

Strangers were suspect. They might be enemies, invaders, or potential conquerors capable of causing the death and destruction of our loved ones. The strangers might have looked different. Maybe they spoke a foreign language, dressed strangely, or had different values. In essence, the thinking was: if you don’t look like me, or talk like me, or believe as I do, then you are my enemy.

Importance of Maintaining an Alkaline Body

Your Body’s pH: What It Is, Why It Matters

Amanda Kimmel & Marlenea La Shomb
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Everything we eat affects our health and makes our bodies either more acidic or alkaline. The normal pH of our bodies is supposed to range from 7.35 to 7.45. A pH value of 0 is the most acidic, while 14 is the most alkaline. A pH of 7 is neutral, as it’s in the middle of the scale. The pH of the foods you consume daily play a huge role in weight gain or loss, what your skin looks like, how susceptible you are to disease and illness, and how you feel upon waking every morning.

So what foods cause our bodies to become more acidic or alkaline? Alkaline foods include vegetables, fruits, green tea, seeds, nuts, and beans. The most alkalizing foods are typically dark-green, leafy vegetables, mainly due to their high chlorophyll content. Acidic foods and drinks include meats, dairy, soda, caffeine, alcohol, and sugars. (See foods list here.)

The “Nurturing” Element

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
May-June 2018 • Vol 3, No 98

Manganese is the “mother love” element. Animals deficient in it show little or no concern for their offspring. People are no different. A shortage of this chemical element creates a sense of dis-ease, having a definite impact on a person’s mental and physical activities. Research has shown that when manganese is taken away from an animal, it will not nurse its young! It loses its ability to associate—to become maternal or paternal. Think post-partum depression showing up, out of the blue, after childbirth.

Parents who are deprived and depleted of this nurturing element can turn hostile, or have angry, silent moods, feeling out of control, unruly and chaotic. Their willpower is unstable, their mind is incapable of making decisions and seeing things clearly, they are easily riled, impatient, quarrelsome and moody.

SILICON—The Strengthening, Magnetic Element

Bridging the Gap between Mental & Physical

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
January-February 2018 • Vol 3, No 96

About silicon, Bernard Jensen, Ph.D., in his book The Chemistry of Man, has this to say: “I find very few people who do not need silicon, which is reflected in the charming, magnetic personality and beauty of movement. All minerals and especially silicon build the ‘temple beautiful.’ The gem of the earth is the human body. Silicon even assists in its evolution to a higher vibratory rate. A person with stored quantities of silicon is alert, quick, agile, lean, nimble and active.”

Bearing the symbol of Si on the periodic chart, silicon is a light, nearly colorless, odorless and tasteless element, with a powerful charge or ‘magnetism.’ Acids join easily with it and are neutralized by this magnetic element, thus relieving such things as gout!…

The Time Is Now to Eradicate Heart Disease

and Strokes with Vitamins!

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September–October 2017 • Vol 3, No 94

How does one connect the dots between vitamin C, scurvy, and heart attacks and strokes? That is the lifetime work of two-time Nobel Laureate, Dr. Linus Pauling, and his friend and co-worker, Matthias Rath, MD, with their books and mutual mission to eradicate heart disease and strokes—and the time for that is now!

Animals don’t get heart attacks because they produce vitamin C in their bodies. This protects their blood-vessel walls. We humans are not capable of producing whole-food-form, complex vitamin C (not the isolated ascorbic acid). Dietary vitamin deficiency of this nutrient weakens blood-vessel walls. Cardiovascular disease is an early form of scurvy.

“The Light Bearer”

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
May-June 2017 • Vol 3, No 92

The element phosphorus is found in the nucleus of each cell, in bodily fluids, and in solid tissue as potassium phosphate. As calcium phosphate, it enters the bony structure. Its Greek root is: phos-, meaning “light,” and -phoros, meaning “carrier, bearer.”

One of the major non-metals in the body, a negatively-charged ion, it performs a great variety of chemical reactions. It usually combines with four oxygen atoms to form the phosphate ion. It is a major part of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), an energy-transfer catalyst. Your B Vitamins are only effective when phosphorus is present—a necessity for the brain and nervous system to function.
