Calcarea Carbonica

Below are the strongest indications of Calcarea Carbonica in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

This great Hahnemannian anti-psoric is a constitutional remedy Par Excellence. Its chief action is centered in the vegetative sphere, impaired nutrition being the keynote of its action, the glands, skin and bone, being instrumental in the changes wrought. Increased local and general perspiration, swelling of glands, scrofulous and rachitic conditions generally offer numerous opportunities for the exhibition of Calcarea Carbonica. Incipient phthisis ( Ars. job.; Tuberculin.) It covers the tickling cough, fleeting chest pains, nausea, acidity and dislike of fat. Gets out of breath easily. A jaded state, mental or physical, due to overwork. abscesses in deep muscles; polypi and exostoses. Pituitary and thyroid disfunction. Raised blood coagulability (Strontium). Is a definite stimulant to the periosteum. Is a hemostatic and gives this power probably to the gelatine injections. Easy relapses, interrupted convalescence. Persons of scrofulous type, who take cold easily, with increased mucous secretions, children who grow fat, are large-bellied, with large head, pale skin, chalky look, the so-called leucophlegmatic temperament; affections caused by working in water. Great sensitiveness to cold; partial sweats. Children crave eggs and eat dirt and other indigestible things; are prone to diarrhoea. Calcarea patient is fat, fair, flabby and perspiring and cold, damp and sour.
BETTER, dry climate and weather; lying on painful side. Sneezing (pain in head and nape).
WORSE, from exertion, mental or physical; ascending; cold in every form; water, washing, moist air, wet weather; during full moon; standing.
Antidotes: Camph.; Ipec.; Nit-ac.; Nux.
Complementary: Bell.; Rhus; Lycop.; Silica.

Brom ( removes inflammatory products from uterus; children of lax fiber, nervous and irritable, with gastric and cerebral irritation. Tendency to brain disease. Insomnia and cerebral congestion. Give 1x trituration). Sulph ( differs in being worse by heat, hot feet, etc.).
Calcar. calcinata - Calcinated oyster-shell - a remedy for warts. Use 3d trituration. Calcarea Carbonica ovorum. Ova Tosta - Toasted egg-shells - (backache and leucorrhoea. Feeling as if back were broken in two; tired feeling. Also effective in controlling suffering from cancer).
Calc-lac ( anemias, hemophilia, urticaria, where the coagulability of the blood is diminished; nervous headache with oedema of eyelids, lips or hands; 15 grains three times a day, but low potencies often equally effective).
Calcar. lacto-Phosph ( 5 grains 3 times a day in cyclic vomiting and migraine).
Calc. Mur. - Calcium chloratum - Rademacher’s Liquor - (1 part to 2 of distilled water, of which take 15 drops in half a cup of water, five times daily. Boils. Porrigo capitis. Vomiting of all food and drink, with gastric pain. Impetigo, glandular swellings, angioneurotic oedema. Pleurisy with effusion. Eczema in infants).
