"A must-have for all students of health!"
Cell Salts: "This system of medicine, a branch of homeopathy that just uses twelve remedies, is commendable for a couple of reasons. First, it is simple. Second, it uses a different medical concept from any other system (biomedicine, homeopathy, TCM, herbalism, Ayurveda, etc.) based on the actions of the electrolytes in controlling the fluids and solids of the inner environment of the body. Third, it is pretty effective. I use it to supplement herbal medicine and to expand my knowledge of the workings of the internal environment."- Matthew Wood

The herbalist can learn to use some of the basic agents of homeopathy...

...in a simple, constructive manner alongside our herbal remedies.

The more toxic agents such as belladonna have fallen out of the herbal materia medica but continue to be used in the homeopathic, while the latter uses many fine herbs: Calendula, Boneset, Hawthorn, St. John’s Wort, Elder, Chamomile, etc.

The basic healing doctrine of homeopathy (like treats like) seems to be in conflict with the inferred method of herbalism (hot to cold). We show that this is not the case and that herbalists can use the basic remedies of the homeopathic materia medica successfully alongside our own plant medicines and homeopaths can use herbs.

Matthew Wood has been using both for thirty-five years.
Fluids and Electrolytes: Physiology and Remedies via the Twelve Cell Salts

In addition, this course includes discussion on the cell salts, which are a sort of "subdivision" of homeopathy, though they also stand on their own as a separate system.  

Here we not only discuss the use of the cell salts (calcium phosphate, sulfate, fluoride - sodium chloride, sulfate, phosphate - potassium chloride, sulfate, phosphate - magnesium phosphate, silica, and iron phosphate) but the fluid/electrolyte regulation of the organism, which these salts influence. This is, therefore, also a course on simple fluid and electrolyte physiology.

To his surprise, Matthew found that the cell salts gave many insights into physiology not found in biomedicine, Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, or any other system.

*Note: the BONUS material (Cell Salts classes Day 1 and Day 2) is recorded from Matthew's computer from a very casual class with a lot of participation from the audience, shuffling, background noise, audio fluctuations, and the occasional dog barking. This is BONUS material and is still worth studying, and required to prepare for the 3-day class. Days 1, 2, and 3 of this course are much better quality than the Cell Salts bonus material which was recorded from an online-only event.

This is for you if you...

desire to go beyond herbs for options for natural remedies.
want a deeper understanding of the physical and energetic remedies available to us.
would like to learn the insights Matthew has gained in the decades of studying and using these remedies.

Upon completion, you will...
