Calcarea when potentized has a long-continued action. When nitric acid, given previously, though selected apparently properly, yet acts in some respects unfavorably, then Calcarea may generally be profitably employed.
so also any unfavorable effects of Calcarea, even when selected apparently homoeopathically, may be neutralized by following it with Nitric Acid nitric acid, and the effect will be changed into favorable ones. Especially in nausea, produced by Calcarea, removed by smelling of the spirits of nitre.
this is almost a specific and much more effective than smelling of Camphora camphor. There are, however, troublesome effects which call for the smelling of Nux Vomica nux vomica. Calcarea is frequently useful after the use of Sulphur sulphur, also when the pupils of the eyes are apt to dilate.
If the catamenia usually come several days before the period and are excessive. Calcarea is frequently the indispensable curative and the more so, the more abundant the flow. But if the menses always appear at the right period or later, even if the menses are profuse, Calcarea is yet but rarely useful. Calcarea can rarely be advantageously repeated with older persons, even after other intervening medicines, and very rarely, yea, hardly ever, can its doses be repeated at once, without injury. But with children, when it is indicated by the symptoms, it may be repeated several times, and the younger they are, the more frequently.
The symptoms marked with a dash before them were the effects of Calcarea Acetica acetate of lime.
