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.
