Calcarea Carbonica - Results/Side effects?hello all,
My son 4 years old, suffering from adenoid and tonsilts more than 2 years.
Now he is taking Calcarea Carbonica. Not very sure with potency(taking 4 very small globules per day 2 three times for the past 1 month).
He is feeling better and better.
Lot of improvements like no mouth breathing etc.
1. Any side effects possible because of Calcarea Carbonica?
2. Any members have any results on Calcarea Carbonica?
Thanks in advance,

The potency is very important and it is something you as the patient (or patient's caretaker) needs to know.
Calc Carb is a long-acting polycrest not usually intended for repeated dosings like that. It is probably a good sign he is feeling better and better. If he were feeling worse it could be an indication of an aggravation.
Usually a striking improvement is an indication you should back off - it means the remedy is working and you should let it play out in its own time.
On the other hand, your homeopath had a dosing schedule in mind. Have you been in touch with that homeopath to report on your son's progress?
Daisy43 last decadeThanks for the reply.
From the report I have the seen the potency values like this.
4-4-4globules per day
My son is taking 4globules per day 3 times.
what is this 1M and 200?
He is taking this for the past 1 month.
Looking forward to your advices.
rskdelphi last decadeI'm not sure what it is telling you (maybe someone else will recognize it), but if either 200C or 1M that is a very high dose and I can't imagine would have been prescribed in that fashion. A single 200C dose might have been appropriate. Some here prescribe a quick three dosings of 200C but then you stop. It wouldn't be day after day after day.
Still, I come back to the question of was this prescribed by a homeopath, and if so have you gotten back to that person? If not, I think you have to stop and see where your son's condition settles. The expected side effect would have been a 'proving' of the remedy which is never encouraged. That he has been feeling better and better is at least hopeful it may not have been an aggravation.

Still I am very sure whether it is 1M OR 200C.
But he is taking this medicine for per day 3 times.
We are planning to go to the homeopath by tomorrow.
It is prescribed by a homeopath only.
My son 4 years was having adenoid and tonsillts problem. Frequent cold and fever. Mouth breathing, heavy cough in the sleeping.
He is taking this medicine for the past 1 month and there is no similar cold/fever/mouth breathing etc now.
Pls. advise us. Thanks in advance,

Ask your homeopath tomorrow which it is and confirm what dosing schedule you were supposed to be on and why. It is possible he meant 3 times for one day only and not every day. Even if he did mean every day, it could be that your son needs a different remedy now since his condition appears to have improved.
Daisy43 last decadeThanks again,
Homeopath has given my son medicine for a month,in a small container very small globules.
Also 4-4-4 in his prescription indicates that I need to take 4 globules three times daily.
4-4-4globules per day
I will check with my homeopath tomorrow.
Main problem here in INDIA is, very few homeopath will tell the medicine name(GOOD that my homeopath is one in that list).
Also very few homeopath will try to discuss/clarifies the remedy procedures. This is a GREAT PROBLEM here.
I dont even know 200 means 200C?
I will get clarified next meeting with him.
rskdelphi last decadeThanks for the replies.
I have looked back my son records.
On 9th feb 2007, he has taken one dose of CC-1M.
Following that he is taking 30c globules per day three times.
Sorry for the confusion of 200c in my previous mails.
Today we have planned for homeopath visit.
rskdelphi last decadeThis thread continues beneath the following ad.hello all,
After my visit to homeopath for my son 4year old with adenoid and tonsillts,
On 9th feb he has been given with CC 1M followed by March 01st with CC 1M followed by March 15th with CC 10M.
All the intermediate period he is taking 30c for three times daily.
Not very sure what treatment he is in.
Kindly add your comments !
thanks in advance,

The dosing doesn't make much sense to me but I'm not qualified enough to have an opinion about it.
The important thing is how is your son doing? From your original report he was continuing to improve. Is that still the case? A log of any changes or symptoms can be very useful to refer back to.
Daisy43 last decadeIf your son's condition is improving, the medicine has completed its task, you should stop giving him the medicine, because it might aggravate. Stop now and check with the doctor or consult the doctor as soon as possible
sazim last decadeMy homeopath has also given me cal carb, convinced its my remedy. It did nothing after four weeks on 1M, so he tried again and now its been another 3 weeks. I want to change to another remedy but homeopath is stubborn. How long is long enough to give it? Thanks.
(I take five drops from a second bottle, once a day). Thanks
Annie4 last yearThis thread continues beneath the following ad.Hi,
I would like to ask...im taking calcarea carb 30C for hashimoto's hypothyroidism.
My TSH levels were at 82.5.
I initially took calc carb 30C ....5 drops in 20ml water 3 times a day for 3 days.
i noticed improvement in some symptoms like improvement in appetite, not so constipated anymore, lesser throat irritation ( i was initially very sensitive to many things which aggravate my throats causing infections).
But unfortunately i also developed symptoms like extreme exhaustion ( an effect felt when one takes cetrizine or flu pills and does not sleep)
i feel very tired and heavy in the head and am not able to do anything much...this symptom is worser than the hypothyroid feeling.
Thus i stopped the cals carb dose for 5 days and started taking it back when the symptoms subsided...but this time only one dose a day in the morning ( 2 drops in 20ml water).
i still experience the exhaustions and also developed allergic like symptoms in the nose ...sneezing and irritation with itching in the nose and coryza like symptoms.
My hypothyroid symptoms very much match that of calc carb and it was helpful to see some improvements in certain aspects...but i do not understand why are the other symptoms aggrevated?
appreciate some feedback and assistance. thank you
