Schuessler Salt No. 19 Cuprum arsenicosum (copper arsenite) is said to play a role in brain and nerve metabolism. It is therefore often used for nerve pain and cramps. Copper arsenite is also said to be involved in iron and thyroid metabolism. It also seems to help with pigment disorders. Find out more about the use and effects of Cuprum arsenicosum here.

What is Schuessler Salt No. 19: Cuprum arsenicosum?

Cuprum arsenicosum (copper arsenite) is said to be particularly suitable for the treatment of cramps that are associated with increased secretion of the mucous membranes and an effect on muscles, vessels and nerves. Here the effect should occur relatively quickly.

Cuprum arsenicosum is also said to stimulate the formation of the skin pigment melanin and balance out pigment disorders by causing the natural dye to be evenly distributed. Furthermore, Schuessler Salt No. 19 is used to eliminate heavy metals for detoxification.

According to the Schüßler theory, Cuprum arsenicosum also has an antioxidant effect. This means that it is thought to mitigate the effects of harmful free radicals (aggressive oxygen compounds), thereby reducing the effects of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress promotes various diseases such as cancer.

Schuessler Salt No. 19, which is based on copper arsenite, is part of the Schuessler antioxidant mixture. In addition to Cuprum arsenicosum, these include Schüßler salts No. 3 (Ferrum phosphoricum), No. 6 (Potassium sulfuricum), No. 10 (Natrium sulfuricum), No. 17 ( Manganum sulfuricum ), No. 21 (Zincum chloratum) and No .26 (selenium).

According to the Schüßler theory, the main stores for Cuprum arsenicosum are in the cells of the liver. These copper arsenite reserves are said to be reduced by excessive stress or due to illness and lead to typical signs of deficiency.

However, Schuessler salts are not a dietary supplement . They only contain the eponymous salt in homeopathic doses and therefore cannot directly compensate for a corresponding salt deficiency. The aim of ingestion is to alleviate symptoms that are similar to those that would occur with a corresponding salt deficiency. The Schuessler salt should also work if there is a completely different cause behind the symptoms.

Applications of Cuprum arsenicosum

Symptoms associated with a lack of copper arsenite are said to get worse especially before the menstrual period, at the new moon, at night, and when it is cold or touched. Drinking cold water and sweating are said to improve symptoms.

In summary, naturopaths often conclude that there is a lack of Cuprum arsenicosum in the case of the following symptoms and diseases:

  • Skin pigment disorders, acute and weeping eczema, feeling cold, cold and sticky sweat
  • muscle cramps, restless legs (restless legs syndrome)
  • Ligament weakness, broken bones, osteoporosis
  • Nerve pain (neuralgia), irritation of the sciatic nerves (sciatica)
  • watery-slimy diarrhea, gastrointestinal cramps
  • Biliary problems, chronic inflammation of the liver (chronic hepatitis), inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), high cholesterol
  • Bronchial asthma, bronchitis, cough
  • chronic inflammation of both kidneys without bacterial involvement (glomerulonephritis), renal vascular sclerosis (calcification of the veins) with nosebleeds
  • thyroid problems
  • iron deficiency
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), menstrual cramps
  • in pregnant women tendency to eclampsia (life-threatening seizures)

With eclampsia, complications such as acute renal failure, cerebral edema, thrombosis, retinal damage, bleeding and placental insufficiency can occur and endanger the life of the child. If eclampsia is suspected during pregnancy, intensive medical monitoring of the patient is urgently required!

Other initial diseases such as chronic kidney inflammation, bronchial asthma or inflammation of the liver and pancreas as well as cramps must not be treated exclusively with Schuessler salts such as Cuprum arsenicosum. In these cases, conventional medical care is urgently needed to avoid serious complications!
