  1. Bioplasma is such a great product as well as all of the cell salts!

  2. Lorna says:

    This was extremely enlightening and informing!

    Re: hylands bioplasma

    Have you actually seen results w this? I ask only because another source I stumbled across says these mass produced tissue salts are made in metal containers which ruins the value of them. Their claim is people who’d been on Hylands for 6 mths & more w no changes then given their ionized cell/tissue salts now get desired results. Just wondering your experience? Thks so much.

    • Becky Plotner says:

      We have eliminated many cavities over the years with 1, 2 and 8 from Hyland. We do not use Bioplasma and I don’t generally recommend it to clients as we focus specifics not broad spray. I follow the GAPS protocol where a great amount of nourishment is achieved through food – which eliminates the need for #12. Keep us posted if you find any validated information. I’d love to read what gave you the info, validated or not. Post it please if you can source it easily. Very interesting indeed!

    • Love2ClearClouds says:

      I called Hyland’s five days ago to ask if their salts/minerals come into contact with metal at any point in shipping, storage, processing, etc. The rep, Marina, started reading from her script about how they are in compliance with the FDA regulations. She asked if that answered my question and I said no because I don’t give a rat’s ass about the FDA, an unconstitutional agency, whose soul (pun intended) purpose is to protect Big Pharma.

      So I asked her to please call the manufacturing facility and get this information. She attempted two more times to continue reading from her worthless script. She finally took my number and said she would find out and call me back. That was five days ago and she has not called me back…not holding my breath. I’m thinking that their salts must involve contact with metal or she would have called me back to confirm.

      In my search for ionized cell salts/minerals, I came across information about Himalayan pink salt which we have been taking for years, yet has not prevented me from severe sciatic problems. Took a year and a half of acupuncture and massage therapy to overcome sciatica and frozen shoulder. Maybe faithfully taking in salt sole daily would do the trick. Check it out:

    • Love2ClearClouds says:

      Lori, I have come across the same information. When minerals coming to contact with metal there ionization is discharged and the mineral can no longer be assimilated into the blood.

      I ordered Himalayan pink salt from and received it in a metal can but the salt contained inside was in a plastic bag. Plastic is a barrier that protects minerals/ions from metal. I wish I had known this before we had wood floors installed in our home because they put heavy plastic sheeting between the wood floors and the concrete slab. I would have re-thought the whole thing and maybe gone with tile instead of wood. Do some googling on earthing and how going barefoot on bare dirt or sand is one of the best ways to receive earth’s healing ions. Concrete, natural stone allows the ions to pass through…wish I had known sooner.

    would cell salts be best or trace minerals? I’m starting to do research and having a hard time comparing the two.
