Calcarea Phosphorica (Calc. Phos)
Written By S.Sulianah MSc, BA, Dip
Bloated stomach has been one of the common issues you and I may have been experiencing. We could have tried exercising it off, sit-ups, abs exercising but still it does not go away. Bloating stomach could be the cause of flatulence, constipation, indigestion, or other possibilities. It can appear in many forms -- hard, soft, rounded, shiny etc. If your doctor has not diagnosed anything, and if it is uncomfortable that it is bothering you, please do visit your doctor for a medical check-up.
I am writing this based on my personal experiences using Schussler Biochemic tissue salts remedies to overcome the bloating stomach I have been experiencing for the past two years.
Why it took me two years to find the suitable remedy suitable for myself?
In practical, I believed in the effectiveness of the science of Schussler Biochemic. Sharing it here is not to merely inform you of the Biochemic Consultation service I am offering. I will write something which works for me as a user. I have been learning Schussler Biochemic tissue salts and Homeopathy since 2005, and have been using these remedies since I was a toddler prescribed by my dad who is a Homeopathy.
I had also tried several remedies such as TCM and supplements Vitamin E and C tablets. But my body is sensitive to supplements, so I had no choice but to stick to the alternatives such as Homeopathy, TCM, Biochemic.
This article is focusing on how Biochemic Calc Phos 6x could aid with digestion.
What is Schussler Biochemic’s tissue salt Calcarea Phosphorica 6x remedy made of?
I have decided to share with you guys what this is through this diagram, the simplified version to understand the summary of Calc. Phos or the common name Phosphate of Lime.
When to take Calc. Phos 6x?
Calc. Phos is advised to be taken after meals to aid with digestion. Normally, it can be taken around 10 to 30 minutes right after meals. It is flexible depending on the needs of your body which you have to learn to observe and analyse. Remember that you own your own body and you have to learn on how it works, what is vulnerable to, anything that is good for you and those that made you uncomfortable.
What kind of results can you expect with Calc. Phos?
This is depending on how your body reacts and depending on other factors such as whether you have sufficient tissue salts in your body to aid with the passing motion. Personally, for mine, some remedies could have effect between 10 to 30 minutes. I will have the urge to go to the toilet and pass motion. And the waste is normally not solid. It will flow out easily without the need to force myself. If I take it at night before sleep, the next morning I need not force myself to pass motion.
Also, there will be a reduction in the bloating, but it will not reduce to 100%. Calc Phos functions is to aid with digestion but it might or might not help you to release the waste in your body by passing motion.
The outcome depends on the individual’s body which leads to the next section. What other remedies that complements with Calc Phos which need to be taken after? This is essential and will need a Biochemic Consultant/Practitioner to prescribe to you too. It depends on factors such as elasticity of your bowels, avoid constipation, or strengthen abdomen muscle.
How does it work?
Calc Phos biochemic tissue salt is to replace this tissue salts that could have been loss every day over the years in your body. There are many reasons that could have caused indigestion.
I find one very obvious sleep disruption at night when your body is at rest while your organs are in the process of doing its job. Sleep experts had highlighted in their studies that the organs in the body activates clean our body of toxins between 11pm to 3am. And when you are having issue with your sleep probably because you think too much about your work or eat too late at night, this will affect the whole body system functions.
That is why Calc Phos is also prescribed to ease sleeping at night. Most of the time, when you normally wake up at night to pee, your bladder could hold on to it and let you sleep all night long without disruption. There will be differences. As I had mentioned earlier, be observant about how your body works and you will be amazed by it.
What are the other remedies that complements with Calc Phos?
There could be other possible reasons which could be the cause of constipation. Therefore, at times there is a need to complement Calc Phos with other remedies such as Calc. Fluor, Mag Phos, Nat Mur or Nat Sulph.
Calc Fluor helps to restore elastic fibres, resume their contractility and function properly. Mag Phos is taken when it could not restore the normal condition in a reasonable time. While Nat Mur and Nat Sulph are for effective water distribution in the body when continuity is disrupted. These are useful especially if you noticed that sometimes you could feel bloating in some other parts of your body like face, neck which makes you feel uneasy. You might have tried exercising which at times will not have any effect to reduce that uneasiness.
For my personal condition, I had complemented my Calc Phos with Mag Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur and Calc. Fluor. And I will consume these either after Lunch and Dinner, or after Dinner only.
I could feel that my body will be lighter, reduce in size and more comfortable when I wear my clothes the next day. Sometimes, I will take other Biochemic remedies too to make sure my stomach muscles are in shape. I could observe the difference in my body whenever I didn’t take these the day before. And since then, whenever I will have dinner dates with my friends the next day, I will make sure I will not miss any of these. It does make me feel comfortable hanging out with my friends the next day.
