This substance is a non-metallic oxide. Silicea comes from the calcination of living material, which is why Dr. Schuessler included it in the essential salts.

Silicea is present in conjunctive tissue, bones, fine hairs, hair, teeth, nails and in nerve, pancreatic and cardiac cells.

A silicea deficiency leads to conditions that progress slowly – chronic diseases with suppurations. In fact, Silicea is indicated for patients with abscesses, fistulas and fetid perspiration. Silicea helps heal indurated conjunctive tissues and eliminate traces of pus.
