Homeopathic Cell (Tissue) Salt Name Chart

Christy ZettlApr 7, '21

Why are there three different names for one cell salt?!

I know it's confusing. Homeopathy has a long tradition of using multiple remedy names for one homeopathic remedy. The same is true of the supplements of homeopathic medicine, cell (tissue salts). All the different names for the cell salts are correct; some are abbreviations of the longer Latin name, some are the common names, and the really long name is the full traditional spelling of the homeopathic remedy. The exception to this is Silica, but even Silica has another common homeopathic spelling of Silicea

With Jackson's Mineral Salts, we used the common name of each cell salt as the brand name so it is clear what the ingredients are. For example, Kali = Potassium and Sodium = Natrum. If you look on the side panel of the bottle, under Medicinal (or Active) Ingredients, you will see the full traditional spelling of the homeopathic remedy:
