Calcarea Fluorata dosage for Fibrocystic Breasts

What would be the dosage for treating chronic fibrocystic breasts? I feel like Calcarea Fluorata is the correct remedy for my problem but don't know what a good starting dosage would be or how to progress with the treatment.

Please read the link that I have posted above and then take your time to give detailed answers to ALL the questions.

Otherwise I can't prescribe.

Also, no disease names please. Tell me like (example): My breasts are swollen red, painful to touch, feel good when massaged etc.

1. Your age & sex: 46, female

2. Describe your appearance i.e. weight, height, body type: 105 lbs, 5'0', petite. Former competitive gymnast so I build muscle fairly easily. Brown hair, brown eyes, fair skin.

3. What are the symptoms of your main health problem: tender breasts with cysts and tendency to develop cysts elsewhere. Right now, my left breast is tender to the touch with a palpable cyst near the bottom left, oval in shape, moveable, and somewhat tender. I had a mammogram about 12 years ago when I was told I had fibrocystic breast disease. I have had several subcutaneous cysts removed from my scalp over the course of the last 10 years and have one there now. I also have a small cyst floating in my knee, palpable through the skin. It is hard and about ½ cm in diameter.

4. How & when did this main problem begin : In my mid-late 20s I began to have tenderness in the breast prior to my periods. I had 2 children which I breast fed with no problems when I was 24 and 26. In my early 30s I began to notice more discomfort before menses in my breasts as well as periodic areas that felt like lumps. I mentioned it to my doctor who ordered a mammogram. I always had very irregular periods—never 28 day cycles and typically would go 6-8 weeks.

5. What makes the main problem better and what makes it worse : Breasts feel better under a hot shower, but that is temporary. The symptoms fluctuate over time and there doesn’t seem to be a correlation I can draw about what makes it better or worse.

6. What other health problems do you have: Currently I feel like I am in good health overall. My left knee has been somewhat sore, but I believe that is the result of gymnastics for many years. Had hysterectomy at 34 years for large uterine fibroid tumors. The largest tumor was over 2 pounds and there were other tumors present.

7. How do you feel emotionally: Peaceful overall, though circumstances can cause temporary anxieties. An example of that would be the stress of having a child go through difficult situations, whether it is stress she is facing at college, or a son who is having a difficult time figuring out what he needs to do with his life. When I look at situations, sometimes I may get overly focused on the negative that I see, but by God’s help, I come back to a place of peace when I trust in Him.

8. Describe your personality: Outgoing with people I know, but difficult for me to initiate connections with new people. From childhood I was slow to extend myself in friendship for fear of being rejected. I grew up in an alcoholic home (both mother and father, and my mother’s parents were also alcoholic) so I have a very difficult time trusting people. I did not have the type of grandparents I could be close to except my father’s father, who was the one relative I remember accepting me just as I was, and he committed suicide (because he had terminal lung canc*r from smoking) when I was 9 years old. I have many casual friends, but very few close friends who I can confide in—my husband, my sister, and my mother in law. I tend to be a 'fixer' and want to right wrongs I see. I tend to be overly focused on whether people seem to be loyal or not and if I feel betrayed, it is very difficult to get over.
I am analytical and love math, physics, and chemistry. I love to teach and teach young children violin and have tutored math. I home educated my children through high school.

9. How do you relax: reading, praying, jigsaw puzzles, walking

10. Do you normally fight or flight: absolutely fight

11. What are you afraid of (situations, animals etc): Nothing comes immediately to mind. I am particularly not afraid for myself, though there have been times where I was afraid for people I care deeply about. An example would be if my son or daughter is really late and doesn’t call or text to let me know, it is easy for me to get worried very quickly for their safety.

12. What occupies your mind mostly: family and loved ones, God

13. How do you respond to consolation & sympathy : When someone offers sympathy or consolation to me I can easily cry, though I am not typically a crier. I believe it is because it moves me that the person cares about my distress.

14. Do you want to stay alone or with people: I'd lean slightly toward being alone for periods of time, but not always. I always have my dog with me when I’m home alone, so I don’t feel alone. I do not like crowds.

15. How is your sleep: I sleep well and dream, often recalling the dreams when I first wake up.

16. Do you have any recurring dreams: Rarely but one there are a couple I’ve had more than once-realizing I'm naked in public or showing up for an exam that I forgot to go to class for all semester.

17. What type of weather do you like and how it affects your complaints: I LOVE cold weather, rainy days, and I do not like hot or humid weather at all. I don't notice any effects on the breast tenderness or cysts.

18. Do you normally feel hot or cold. I tend to feel hot in summer even when I’m inside. I run ceiling fans in the house so I feel cooler. I tend to not heat my home too much because I like it cooler so I feel cool in winter. In particular, my feet will be cold often in winter even with wool socks. Rarely, they will feel cool in the summer as well.

19. What types of clothes you wear: comfortable outdoor type clothes or jeans and knit shirts. I am not a dressy person since I am a housewife but I do dress up occasionally. I wear dress pants to church because I feel more comfortable in them. In the winter, I love wool socks, fleece, and hiking pants. In the summer, short sleeve knit shirts, light weight hiking pants or jeans.

20. What foods you love & hate: I love all kinds/varieties/ethnicities of food. I do enjoy 1 cup of coffee in the morning, occasional very dark chocolate. I don't enjoy fried/greasy foods and eat very little beef. I hate liver though I haven’t eaten it since I was a child. I have an aversion to gamey tasting meat but I enjoy venison. I love garlic and cook with it a good bit. I don’t care for bland foods. I have noticed because our primary meat is chicken that beef doesn’t agree with me and makes me feel bloated and I will burp a lot. We don’t eat much meat, though we do eat a little chicken.
21. What taste you love & hate (sweet, salty, sour, bitter): I love the taste of coffee with cream and sugar in it, garlic, dark chocolate, ginger. I prefer sweet and salty to sour or bitter.

22. Do you want to eat indigestible foods (chalk, mud….): No, that has never crossed my mind.

23. How is your thirst : I’m not typically a thirsty person though I try to be sure I drink plenty of water. I have found if I don’t have a glass of water near me, I won’t think to drink.

24. Do you have dry lips & mouth : I use lip balm because my lips often feel dry.

25. Any coating on tongue first thing in the morning: No

26. How is your skin: I have fair skin with a few freckles/moles on my body. I don’t have acne or other skin problems on my face, but I have dark circles under eyes from childhood (allergies). Occasionally, if I’ve had to do a lot of dish washing, I will get redness, itchiness, and very tiny blisters on the fingers of my right hand (contact dermatitis.) I had eczema as a very small child in the creases of my arms but it cleared up quickly. My skin does tend to feel dry in the winter if use soap, so I don’t wash my face with soap. I use a castor/olive oil mixture and I use lotion or oil on my body.

27. Details about your sweat (perspiration): I do not perspire heavily. I do not use anti-perspirant even in the summer. I don’t have problems with body odor and with the use of a deodorant stone, have no odor even after 2 days.

28. Any problems with ears, nose, chest, throat : Periodic sinus allergies brought on by grass/trees. Itchy watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing during those times. I do sometimes cough myself awake at night because of sinus drainage.

29. How is your stool & urine : stool 1-2 times per day. Not hard nor diarrhea. Color and texture is changeable depending on my diet. Urine is pale yellow with no obvious abnormality
30. How is your sexual life & desire: I don't have much sex drive at all.

31. Males genitals (erection, pain etc.)

32. Females menses details for regularity, flow, clots, discharge other than menses : No menses (partial hysterectomy , ovaries remain) Before my hysterectomy, my periods were very irregular, not heavy. They would last 5-7 days with cramps on the first couple days only. Period frequency was every 6-8 weeks.

33. What illnesses are running in your family, mother’s side & father’s side & brothers/sisters: My parents are in their 80s so have issues related to age. In his 40s my dad was diagnosed with high blood pressure and has cholesterol issues. My grandmother on his side had diabetes the last few years of her life and lived to be 96. My mother has thyroid issues that were brought on by a radiation treatment for acne. She is on thyroid medication. I have not had any problems with any of these conditions so far. My sister has fibrocystic breasts as well.

Can you recall any event which triggered the FC breasts

Which knee has cyst

What was going on in your life at that time

I gather that only left breast is involved

Any discharge from nipples

How do your breasts feel to pressure & massage

Can you recall any event which triggered the FC breasts: No, as far back as I can remember I had soreness of breasts prior to my period. No specific trigger that I could identify. It does seem to run in my family.

Which knee has cyst: left

What was going on in your life at that time : I noticed it the summer of 2012. My daughter was home from college for the summer. Summer is typically a less stressful time of year. I take a summer break from teaching. The year prior to that we had a real difficulty because we had to send a foster child back to his biological family against his wishes.

I gather that only left breast is involved : no, both breasts are fibrous, but more noticeable in the left side right now. With the obvious cyst/lump and tenderness.

Any discharge from nipples: No, though there was when I was 34 which was why I had the mammogram.

How do your breasts feel to pressure & massage : it feels lslightly sore, but like it would benefit--like stretching out sore muscles is uncomfortable, but is a good discomfort.

How do you feel about heights, closed tight spaces, snakes, spiders: I have a sensible caution about heights but am not afraid of them. I'll climb a ladder to wash 2nd story windows, love hiking in the mountains, don't mind glass wall elevators. I have no fear of snakes or spiders and will catch and relocate either. Closed spaces don't bother me, but I wouldn't choose to be in a closed space full of people, like an elevator, if I have a choice. I don't get freaked out or anything though.

I believe Silicea Terra is your remedy.

Please take two doses of Silicea Terra 200c, 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.

First dose: At night before sleeping.

Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose in the morning.

Cal-F is definitely not your remedy.
