About Biochemic System

The founder of the Biochemic system of medicine is Doctor Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler. In this system all the diseases are treated with 12 remedies. It is found out by chemical analysis that the tissues of the human body are composed of twelve major salts. Doctor Schuessler believes that disease is caused by the deficiency of one or more of these salts in human body system and by supplying this deficiency the disease can be cured. Doctor Schuessler’s own experiments and observations along with those of his followers have proved the truth of this theory beyond doubt. These medicines are also called Homeopathic medicines but their application is not according to the principle of similia but according to fulfilling the pathological deficiency in the tissues.

Biochemic medicine doses


The tissue remedies are used is such minute doses that they can not have any harmful effects even if the selection is not correct. According to severity of the disease, the medicine is used in different potencies such as 3x or 6x for acute diseases,12x, 30x or c, 200x or c for chronic diseases.  For general use 6x is suitable. The general recommendation of dosages is half to one grain for a baby, one or two grains for children and three to four grains for adults.There is no need to be very accurate in weighing the dose. Now a days the readymade pallets of grains are supplied by the pharmacies.

Doctors recommend to administer the dose with medicine dissolved in spoonful of hot water on empty stomach as a rule but for multiple doses the rule may be disregarded. Two or more tissue remedies can be mixed together and administered. These remedies can be used externally on wounds & burns and scalds, or on inflammation of any part of the body. Ointments can be made with one part of medicine powder with 2 parts of Vaseline or butter.
