The gallbladder concentrates and stores bile as a pear-shaped sac which it can release to help digestion after a fatty meal.
Biochemic healing is based on the principle that some inorganic salts and trace elements are extremely important to keep the body healthy and active. Propounded by the noted doctor of medicine and physiological chemist, Dr. Schuessler, the heart of biochemic healing lies with 12 essential salts - Calcium Fluoride, Calcium Phosphate, Phosphate of Iron, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Phosphate, Potassium Sulphate, Magnesium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Sulphate, Silica Oxide, and Calcium Sulphate. Dr. Schuessler believed that a proper balance of these mineral salts is extremely essential for healthy functioning of the body. He believed that these salts in proper balance enabled the cells assimilate nutritional material in correct amounts and encourage normal cell metabolism. Illness, according to him, is a consequence of imbalance in these salts in the cells. By administering the deficient salts in extremely refined and microscopically small amounts, it is possible to cure many diseases. Biochemic healing has a very strong following and is known to work well either on its own or in conjunction with homeopathic remedies.
