Naturopathy maintains a liking with the father of western medicine namely; “Hippocrates” and medical practices of ancient Egypt which follows the natural healing philosophy by using the healing power of nature through incorporating food, air, light, water, and herbs to prevent and cure disease. The natural healing philosophy has been traced as far back to an Austrian Silesian farmer namely; Vincenz Priessntz (1791-1851) where he saw that injured animals regularly resorted to streams of cold water and realised when they came out they were better, from this point he presumed that cold water was nature’s cure.
Vincenz then tested his theory on himself and fellow village people commencing from sprains and bruises, then cholera and diseases of the heart, lungs, kidney, liver, and brain. From then he created a group of spa’s around Europe where it grew into therapeutic communities and through this naturopathic practices of today can offer a broad selection of alternative therapies such as herbal medicines, mineral therapies, flower essences, massage therapy, nutritional supplementation, diet and lifestyle support following the healing power of nature philosophy as a preventative and rehabilitative treatments as opposed to antidotes to particular diseases to treat the whole person and restore homeostasis.
The Historical Development of Mineral Therapy
Treating human disease and illness with mineral therapy dates back to the 16th century when a Swiss physician namely Phillippus Aureolus Paracleus (1493 – 1541) altered how medicine was used by the introduction of chemistry.
Dr Samuel Christian Frederic Hahnemann (1755 – 1843) a German physician who conducted in depth research and analysis on how minerals affect human physiology. Hahnemann developed the homeopathic system. During Hahnemann’s research on all the clinical signs he discovered more than 100 years ago aligns to medical findings and research work of today.
Dr William Scheussler (1822 – 1898) another German homeopathic physician identified 12 mineral salts in ashes of a burnt body. Upon Scheussler’s findings more research showed that different organs and segments were made up of different minerals in different divisions. Shcuessler concluded that mineral elements are crucial to anatomical principle and practical movement; and that any disruption caused by deficiency would embody disease that could only be fixed by giving the matching mineral salts in small homeopathic amounts.
In 1938 Australian Naturopathic Physician Dr Maurice Blackburn (1906 – 1978) expanded on Schuessler’s work to make his own mineral salts in tablet form which are referred to as Celloids.
Forty years on in 1978 another Australia Practitioner – Dr Leslie Fisher came up with a new procedure into prescribing which he had set up after a dozen years of scientific prescription and observation. The new procedure came about by a theorised basis for the action of the salts, which included the works of Schuessler and Blackmore along with application to his own findings from his scientific researches plus with the more current findings of therapeutical research.
How does Mineral therapy apply in the treatment of disease
Mineral therapy treats the body as a whole to heal itself from indications of a cellular imbalance/deficiencies in tissue salts within the body that results in ill health and disease such as poor circulation; nerve dysfunction, infection and poor nutrition.
Prescribing of Mineral Therapy
The current procedure of prescribing employs a blend of traditional homeopathic and naturopathic diagnostics, current knowledge of biochemistry and extensive scientific experiment whilst taking into consideration characteristics like location of pain, current mental and emotional states, food and weather patterns that aggravate or ameliorate the symptoms, physical changes such as skin, eyes, fingernails and tongue, nature of any exudatioc ns or discharges, individual constitutional needs for particular minerals.
