Can I take Schuessler Salts if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Schuessler’s salts are recommended in pregnancy so that both mother and a baby get enough of all the necessary tissue salts. But be sure to contact your consultant for Schuessler Salts who will prepare for you a tissue salts program for each trimester. Different salts are used in different months of pregnancy so it is important to follow the instructions of your consultant for Schuessler Salts. Be sure to tell your doctor who is managing your pregnancy that you would like to use Schuessler’s Salts and ask for his or her opinion. Every pregnancy is unique and therefore a personal approach is needed when choosing salt for a pregnant woman.
The salts you take during pregnancy and breastfeeding pass to your baby. Be sure to consult your doctor as well as your consultant for Schuessler Salts before using them. Various recommendations for the use of Schuessler Salts for pregnant women and babies can be found on the Internet and in various books, but their independent use for pregnant and breastfeeding women is not recommended without prior consultation with experts. The Schuessler Salt Program recommended by your counselor, and approved by your doctor or pediatrician, can be of great benefit to you and your baby!
Is it safe for babies and children to take Schuessler Salts?
Babies and children can also take Schuessler Salts and they are very useful in the first months of a child’s life as they effectively help with colic, teething, lowering fever and other ailments. The tablets can be taken dissolved in a bottle or in baby food, soaked in a little water. If the baby is breastfed, the mother can take tissue salts herself, and dissolve them under the tongue while breastfeeding the baby, and the tissue salts will reach the baby through the milk. The method of taking Schuessler’s salts is the same for children as for adults, except that the number of tablets a child takes per day will be adjusted to the child’s age. Schuessler’s salt tablets have a sweet taste and melt quickly under the tongue, so children love to use them.
