great for skin issues
November 25, 2012
I was introduced to the use of cell salts by my naturopathic physician. I have used various ones myself but use silicea for my dog. She has chronic skin issues which we have been able to manage pretty well through diet and nutritional supplements, but still would get a yucky fungal infection in her facial wrinkles (she is a pug) that would require daily wiping and use of natural antifungal ointments. If I missed one day of SCHUESSLER - Silicea 6X, things would get so much worse and bother both her and us. I decided to try some silicea and just put three tablets in her food bowl with her kibble. Within days, her infection totally cleared up and as long as she is on the silicea we don't need to wipe or use any ointments at all.
Pros:easy to use and very benign even if you choose the wrong cell salt
seems to work wonders on skin issues, even for dogs.
Cons: A bigger bottle would be nice as it seems my dog needs to use SCHUESSLER - Silicea 6X long term
