As many cells need its source for strength, the cell salt Silica helps restore weak tissues that lack the strength to expel or root out congestions and irritants. For skin, it helps eliminate splinters, acne, eruptions and corns. For glands and membranes, it helps the body cleanse sore throats, mature coughs, sinus and ear congestion as well as constipation and diarrhea. Other indications include: pale skin, nervous irritability, timidity, fatigue, a lack of vital heat; weak ankles, skin, hair and nails; symptoms that feel better with warmth and much worse in a cold draft.
Silica or Silicea (silicon dioxide / rock crystals)
Made from rock crystal, this cell salt’s source provides the strength in straw, plant stems, sponges, feathers, hair, skin, nails, bone surfaces and other tissues. Nicknamed the ‘grit’ cell salt, Silica’s strengthening action helps many conditions that need strength, cleansing or purging, especially in weakened individuals and disorders.
When weak or overtaxed cleansing systems cause skin and glandular symptoms, Silica can help the body clear out many issues. In the skin, it helps clear acne, splinters, sores, corns, scar tissue, tooth pain, athlete’s foot and toenail fungus.
It has proven very supportive in helping swollen sore throats and blocked eye ducts. The colds it treats best suffer under sinus and ear congestion with dry, crusty or blocked nasal passages and hammering, burning headaches. When a winter cough will not go away, Silica might be just the solution to clear out thick yellow mucus.
Of course Silica’s purging action applies to its digestive uses as well when constipation with much straining leads to smelly flatulence and eventually diarrhea. If poor assimilation of nutrients leads to improper nutrition, it offers gentle healing support.
The key to Silica’s deepest uses is a want of grit– physical and sometimes moral. It offers the most benefit to individuals with some or all of these symptoms: nervous irritability, timidity, fear of public speaking, exam nerves, fear of needles, weak ankles, pale skin, fatigue, a lack of vital heat, and weak hair and nails. Its offers the most benefit to patients who are concerned about their image (what people think). Though naturally chilly, they perspire (cheesey smelling). People needing Silica most feel better in a warm room with a warm hat on, and much worse in a cold draft.

The patient is often refined, delicate, sensitive and yielding. Generally speaking the emotional level is fairly well-balanced in Silica patients except for problems with self-esteem. The self-confidence of the patient is often very poor. The patient may complain of some mental dullness and a feeling of inefficiency. He feels uncertain of his abilities and doubts all of his work. This feeling causes him to dwell compulsively on small details.
