calcarea carbonica 1M

Hi All,

My 2 year old was given Calc 1M as his const remedy back in early Dec and although very slow to work, it did bring about some improvements in his sleep,constipation and other symptoms he had before beginning treatment. I then had my daughter a month ago and he went back to waking very frequently, being constipated, clingy, afraid of strangers and very sensitive. We then repeated the 1M dose after succussion about 2 weeks ago but I haven't seen much effect as of yet.

My question is shouldn't children respond to high potencies very quickly? since my son hasn't responded to the 1M again, does this mean it wasn't his true simillimum or that an even higher potency is needed?

Would appreciate any advice, thanks

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The higher the potency the more time it takes for the vital force to respond to it. But the problems should have had a 'dramatic' improvement from the 1M dose once the body had responded. I do not think you need to go to a higher potency, a new remedy seems to be indicated now or maybe it was in the first place. I doubt if Calcarea Carb was the simillimum.

It sounds more like Pulsatilla to me , sensitive and clingy and especially the insecurity after the birth of a sibling.

By the way , although I am in favour of giving C potencies in water, I have always had bad results with sucussing them and repeating them often. With C potencies , wait and watch works best, and then raising the potency when progress stops or symptoms return (with a lesser intensity).

Sucussions work best with LMs only, and I am saying this after having tried sucussing the C potencies and the disappointing results I have invariably seen from this.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Pulsatilla did cross my mind too but he is not weepy that way and doesn't have a mild disposition. He has instead been throwing tantrums and hitting out (not with the baby thankfully but he has been taking out all his anger on my husband and I) also biting when he doesn't get his way. I am still nursing him and have been trying to wean for a few months now unsuccessfully as each time I try (whatever time of day) he has reacted very violently. Think this may have something to do with his behaviour too -- also the start of my pregnancy coincided with his clinginess and sudden fear of strangers so he must have emotionally reacted to the change in me as well.

Thanks for the info on succussion, do you mean then that the first 'C' dose should be given dry? And how does one repeat the dose then if not through succussion?

kind regards

C dose should be given in water. I am just saying that the theories about 'repeating them every n days...with x sucussions' is something I have always had problems with.

Give them in water, but be as conservative about repeating them as you will be with a dry dose.

And, never more than 2-3 doses of same potency just like in dry dose.

Do look at Lyc. It follows Calcarea well.. and the symptoms you say... are pointing to it.. Read it
