Do you know the secret to aging gracefully?

"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."

-- Mark Twain

In recent weeks, Hollywood has treated us to a 'mish mosh' of stories on maturing actresses ending up in the hospital, Demi Moore for "exhaustion" and Heather Locklear for combining the wrong combination of prescription drugs with alcohol.  Whatever the real reasons are, it's not surprising that the media has harped on the "aging actress" angle of these stories, no matter how beautiful or graceful both of these actresses still are. 

The fact is, we're all aging.  Silly as it sounds, its true, and there are mental, physical and emotional challenges we face through most of our aging transitions.  Furthermore, most of us have not been blessed with freakish good looks and the genetic makeup or financial means to look 20 or 30 something well into our 50's and 60's.  Yes - exercise and good skin care can help a lot, but we think the real secret to aging gracefully is more likely found by a state of mind.   While homeopathy does not promise any magic bullets for anti-aging, some homeopathic remedies can help with mental, physical and emotional balance at the core.  Here are a few options to keep in mind.

Elastic - Tissue G

A Classic Example of cell salts combined to target a weakness.  We often think of elasticity as an aging issue with varicose veins and hemorrhoids, but imagine the elasticity it takes to go from newborn to 6 feet tall or to build muscles that can lift twice your weight. The elasticity in our veins keeps them from getting stretched and varicosed. The elasticity in our muscles, tendons, skin and nerves keeps them strong and flexible. 

Calc fluor is the most important elasticity remedy for treating growing bones, lumbago, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, stretch marks and other ‘relaxed’ conditions. 

Calc phos boosts nutrition and cellular activity to restore tone to tissue weakened by growth spurts, injury, illness or wear and tear. 

Kali phos helps steady nerves and encourages healing of nerve tissue, especially in nerve rich areas or injuries that seem too sensitive. 

Nat mur helps ease dryness and aids water distribution to help circulation especially when tissues are mending or stiff.  So, whether growing up, recovering from an injury, illness, fitness class, puberty, pregnancy, aging or the blahs, you can use this remedy to aid flexibility and bounce-back-ability.

12 Special Single Remedies

 Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall, our bodies need strong, stress-resistant cells to avoid ailments and embrace the season’s potential.  Homeopathically prepared from the basic mineral compounds that cells in the body depend on, the twelve cell salts help stimulate proper use and assimilation of these vital nutrients.

In homeopathic potencies, the cell salts are mild and safe at any dosage!  

These descriptions are all in accordance with Dr. W. H. Schuessler’s Biochemic Therapeutics, which established the cell salt remedies in 1876. He states that our cells and organs rely on these twelve inorganic substances and that abnormal conditions (illnesses) arise when they are not in balance.

Our History and Theirs

After working with the cell salt’s founder Dr. Wm. Schuessler in Germany in the 1890s, F. A. Luyties brought an enthusiasm for the cell salts back to his grandfather’s pharmacy that remains with us today. In J.B. Chapman’s book, Dr. Schuessler’s Biochemistry he states: “The Luyties Pharmacal Company were pioneers in the introduction of these remedies to the physicians in the United States.”

All cell salts are readily available in 5 potencies:

6X, 12X and 30X are packaged in 500 tablet bottles;

30C and 200C in 160 pellet vials.
