Calc Phos And Brittle Bones

Updated on December 19, 2013

Calcium phosphate is one of the main constituents of the bone cells – and the bones are where the new cells for the body are produced so you can see how important it is for the body to stay healthy and fit. With enough of this salt in your body, you can say goodbye to brittle bones.

There are physical, mental and emotional symptoms that call for the tissue salt Calcarea Phosphoricum or Calc Phos for short.

Unhealthy bones of the body and anemia are two of the main problems that follow from a deficiency of this cell salt. In infants, it could be that the fontanelles do not join for a long time and the teeth could make their appearance very late. During teething, children could suffer from a lot of pain, even convulsions. It could take a long time for damaged or broken bones to join together again. With bone growth being slow, children who need this salt and are not given it could stay stunted or have bow legs. In bad cases, it could even affect the spine which could become curved. Children who need this salt could also suffer from crusta lactea or hard crusts on the scalp.

Infants benefit a lot when they are given this tissue remedy at intervals when they are growing up even if they do not suffer from any of these problems. What is even better is if every pregnant mother took doses of this remedy right through pregnancy to ensure that the baby gets enough of this valuable salt to build strong bones.

It’s the tissue remedy that could make you energetic again as it is a great remedy for anemia. A deficiency of this salt could mean clammy feet and hands as well as cold sweats and numbness. It’s also a remedy for cramps when Mag Phos takes a long time to work. Calc Phos is a must after fractures to make sure the bones set well and quickly. It’s alleviates the pain of toothaches that come on at night.

Calc Phos has also been used with great results to clear up a sore throat caused by having to speak a lot, flatulence and heartburn, waking up with a foul (ugh!!) taste in your mouth and a stiff neck that comes on after exposure to the cold.

Mentally, you’ll find someone who needs this peevish and irritable as well as anxious. There could also be a loss of memory. People who lack this salt usually hate to do any kind of mental work.

      For growing children, one dose of Five Phos, one dose thrice a week is great. You get this at any homeopathic store.

      For your Mom, together with Nat Phos 6x, she should try Calc. Fluor 12 x, one dose a day and see if it helps. Also, a couple of doses of Arnica 200 and Hypericum 200 for healing. These could be given once a week for three weeks.

      Hi Shalini,

      Very good information. I like all your posts. Thank you for sharing all this. I have couple of questions.

      (1) You mentioned that Calc Phos is good for growing children. What should be the dose for this? My son is 6. Also what other biochemic medicine is good as a tonic for children?

      (2) My mom has undergone spine surgery 2.5 years back for a hard tumor. Her nerves are damaged a lot and now she has difficulty in passing stools (per doctors it is because of nerve damage). She takes laxative every day, still has to make effort to pass the stool. Also has cramps in abdomen and legs because of this. Right now she is taking Nat phos 6x 3 tablets after each meal and it helps in softening the stools to some extent. Please suggest something.
