Bioplasma Salts - Anyone with experience?

Hello :)

I've been reading so much in trying to ascertain which supplements I really need and came across homeopathic salts and was wondering if anyone here has been using them. For economic reasons I've ended up purchasing Hyland's BioPlasma Salts which contain 12 "essential cell salts".

Does anyone here have a good experience with this brand, or do think it's a bit of a "snake oil" product?

here's a link to the brand I've already purchased:

healthmonthly.co.uk/hylands...

Unfortunately I've just received an email to tell me they are currently out of stock so I will have to wait a while until I can give them a shot, but in the meantime, I'd love to hear other people's opinions or experience on this type of supplement.

  • You missed:

    Inactive Ingredients:

    Acacia Gum, Lactose N.F.

    Ironically, many people here have suggested that acacia and/or lactose (which are present in some thyroid hormone products) are actually the cause of some "side effects".

  • Thanks for your input helvella. I'm more interested in the alleged "active ingredients" for discussion, though I am aware that some people have issues with the fillers in a lot of supplements, fortunately I don't.

  • Sorry, no experience but does sound like snake oil to me. If you are B12 deficient, probably better to focus finances there.

  • Thanks secondchance :) I have the B12 sorted and just been looking to put a few other things into balance. I like the sound of these and they've had extremely good reviews on Amazon but I guess I'll find out if they're snake oil tabkets, lol. I'm very sensitive to changes in my own biochemistry so will let you know if I feel any benefit from them but don't hold your breath! .

  • HI Emjay. Throwing in my two pence worth - anything marked homeopathic is at best a waste of money and at worst a conniving exploitation. Time after time homeopathic medicine has been shown to be a con extraordinaire and has no medicinal merit whatsoever. The 'medicine' is dilute to such a degree that it is completely inefficacious. They often use the comparison of 'it works like vaccination - a little of the 'disease' cures the disease' but the dilution used in homeopathic medicines is so ridiculously small you are effectively eating sugar pills. Any effect they are purported to have by users is purely one of placebo.

    As for "the essential cell salts", your body gets any salts it needs from your food and most people eat too much salt - no supplementation is needed. So yes, it's snake oil. Save your money for something that works - like genuine vitamins.

  • totally disagree here, homeopathy is natural, it works for some and not others, just like chemical stuff works for some and not others, in 1998 I woke one morning to a swollen face and eyelids slits, my face was red and the blood came to the surface, it was hell, it was like it for three weeks, the GP didn tknow what to do, she had not seen anything like it- she tried many things , indesperation I wentto a homeopath, 3 pulsutilla pills and this cleared it up, I always keep an open mind, as we are not clones. and bear in mind the chemicals added in ordinary supps and meds far greater. I no longer rip something apart unless I have proof first or read fromreputable sources. I also buy my sups from the link emjaytee an dthey are a very reputable firm so I shall buy mine there too- thanks for thelinksaves me havingto look up whereto get mine from. x

  • Except that homeopathic remedies truly are so diluted that they are really just water. They can't have the effects they claim. Any improvement must be due to other factors, or just time itself.

  • Allyson why don't you research a bit before you judge and see how homeopathy as helped many people who hasn't had help from mainstream.. google Royal London integrated hospital Homeopathy

    Friends and read the stories- don't judge before you know and do not just assume when you do not know. they are diluted for a reason and we have body frequencies , we have biorythmns, we have systems

    around how bodies that rays from electrical equipment interfere with. there is allsorts goingon in a body, our cells have memories and a blue print, when someone has an amputation for instance, that person still feels like the limb is still there.

  • I already have looked into it. I think a lot of us with chronic health issues run into this stuff at some point.

    It's good to have a hopeful, positive mindset when dealing with health issues, but that doesn't mean one has to believe everything.

    Homeopathic remedies have no mechanism of action aside from blind faith. They are simply water.

    They cannot actually heal the body. If a person enjoys taking them for themselves, that is their choice.

    But they should not be promoted as medicines for serious health problems.

  • Spoken like a loyal allopath. Our body is a complicated electrical system. To understand homeopathy one must study frequencies and their relationship to our bodies/system.

  • When I hear mention of "energies" or "frequencies", etc, it is a red flag. These things are usually imaginative theories. They are not actually measurable.

  • closed off mind allyson

  • When I hear mention of "energies" or "frequencies", etc, it is a red flag

    Too true - meaningless prattle spouted by con-artists and regurgitated ad nauseum.

    How many double-blind, large-scale, peer-reviewed studies have there been to show the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies?

    Clue - the answer is round.

  • Wow. That reply just launched me to the highest abodes of conciousness itself.

  • OK Prytulas, instead of telling us what we must study, how about starting some explanation?

    What you write sounds rather like music of the spheres.

  • Ok allyson, i no longer believe a word you say with such a billiard ball atom approach to reality. Water itself is not just water either, it adopts many different charachteristics which is an alteration in molecular structure. And to grasp the extremity of this simple alteration in a molecule producing completely different effects, look at the molecular structures of dmt, psilocybin and ayahuasca. Verry similar, but a slight modification gives the user an experience of a different dimension.

  • it adopts many different charachteristics which is an alteration in molecular structure.

    Really? It adopts a structure different from H-O-H? Stuff and nonsense.

    look at the molecular structures of dmt, psilocybin and ayahuasca. Verry similar

    Only to somebody with a knowledge of chemistry approaching zero. For a start, ayahuasca doesn't have a chemical structure. It is a plant, extracts of which contain man hundreds of different chemicals.

    Did you really join this group just to post your nonsensical rantings in a deliberate attempt to wind up legitimate members? Of will you ever have anything constructive and reliable to post? Because, if you haven't, then it's probably best if you go away.

  • Funny how people accept the research/science which identifies molecular structures in the first place, then seemingly randomly claim that there are only almost-negligible differences between substantially different molecules. And that there are major differences between molecules of water without any explanation or justfiication - certainly no science has been put forward.

  • Thanks Chancery,I think you may be right!

  • hi well I knew about the 12 cells salts years ago an d I have only just thought about buying some myself, look for my post on princess kate and adrenal fatique a few days ago, like last week--- and the guy talking actuallymakes his own, he is affectionally know as the witch dr on facebook, name of tom goyteche.. the llink to princess kate is on the thyroid forum

  • Unfortunately it seems this is the same Tim Goyetche who ran a spam operation out of Canada in the early 2000s. Now he has turned to homeopathy out of his home and photography of young women.

    This would not be the first time I've come across someone with no medical education, but a background in dubious marketing techniques, who is now promoting themselves in the natural health world.

  • Hi Pettals, I did read your post and watch the video, it was very interesting and gave me new hope that I haven't just wasted my money! :)
