Establishing mineral nutrient deficiency according to Hickethier's face analysis
A so-called ''facial analysis'' reveals signs of deficiency of specific mineral nutrients and active materials in the body. This diagnostic method was developed by Kurt Hickethier on the basis of Dr W. H. Schuessler's writings.
Purpose and procedure of facial analysis
Kurt Hickethier made decisive developments in facial analysis in the first half of the twentieth century. He observed people diagnosed with Bechterew's disease over a long time period. He hypothesised that mineral nutrient deficiency was observable in these people's faces, and then went on to test this procedure. Hickethier distinguished and recognised different formations of light patches, colouring and wrinkles on the face, that were diminished with the intake of Schuessler mineral nutrients.
Facial analysis today
Thomas Feichtinger further developed the method of facial analysis, whereby each Schuessler mineral nutrient corresponds to a specific set of facial signs. Today it is possible to do a six-part training course to prepare for advisory roles on the biochemistry of Schuessler salts.
