Silicon dioxide? It is actually quartz and is just as important to our skin, nails and structural make up as it is for plant stems and trees to stand upright. On studying the cell salt Silica, the cell salts' founder, Dr. W. H. Scheussler found it helps the body expel or root out congestions and irritants, especially in weakened tissues or individuals. In skin applications, Silica helps the body eliminate splinters, acne, eruptions, corns and fungal issues such as athlete’s foot. For other systems, Silica helps efforts to cleanse sore throats, mature coughs, sinus and ear congestion as well as constipation and diarrhea. Other diverse symptoms that indicate its use include: pale skin, nervous irritability, timidity, fatigue, a lack of vital heat; weakness in ankles, skin, hair and nails; a tendency to feel better with warmth and much worse in a cold draft.
Uses: SKIN: ACNE, ERUPTIONS, FUNGUS, SPLINTERS, SCAR TISSUE • SINUS CONGESTION • CONSTIPATION
SILICA is a natural cleanser and eliminator. It can often initiate the healing process by prompting suppuration and breaking up accumulations. Boils, pus formations, brittle nails, lackluster nails, weak hair, and offensive perspiration of the feet and armpits are all indications for SILICA. Symptoms are generally worse at the beginning and end of the day, with cold, from washing and during menstruation, and better from heat and humid wet weather.
SILICA is specifically useful for: Acidity- gastric disturbances, irritation of the skin and mucous membranes, twinges of rheumatism, headaches and a persistent feeling of tiredness, all as symptoms of acidity. SILICA may be indicated by an upset stomach with gas, heartburn and chilliness. Skin Ailments- SILICA may be indicated in abscesses, boils, and any other skin conditions with thick, yellow discharges.
Insights from the Experts: 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. –Roger Morrison, Desktop Guide

All of Hyland’s Cell Salts are minerals combined within a matrix of lactose (Lactose N.F) or milk sugar. Lactose N.F does not contain any casein, whey, or other milk proteins. Many milk allergies/ sensitivities are due to the protein content, not the sugar portion. The lactose content is relatively small and for most with lactose intolerance, it would take ingesting 25-30 tablets at a time to cause a flare-up. Please check with your physician if you are specifically allergic or sensitive to pure lactose before using these products.
