A term misused by a German homeopath, WH Schüssler, for the use of “tissue salts” to treat patients with alleged mineral deficiencies.

Chemistry
Physiologic chemistry—the chemistry of living cells, tissues, and organisms.

biochemistry

The study of the chemical processes going on in living organisms, especially humans. Biochemistry is concerned, among other things, with the acceleration of biochemical processes by ENZYMES; with the chemical messengers of the body (HORMONES); with communication between cells at cell membranes; with the chemical processes which govern cell survival and reproduction; with the production of energy in cells; and with the processes of digestion of food and the way in which the resulting chemical substances are utilized for energy and structural purposes.
