Calcarea Fluorica (Calc. Fluor) is the first remedy in The Biochemic System of Medicine.
I have always related it as the remedy to solve any deficiency in elasticity of the skin, cells and bowels. I will complement this remedy with Calc. Phos, Kali Phos, Nat Phos and Mag Phos whenever I have problems with digestion which could result in abdominal bloating as mentioned in the earlier article on how Calc. Phos could improve digestion.
It makes a lot of difference because anything we eat might be able to digest, but does that mean the waste could be released easily from our body?
Another common use of Calc. Fluor is for ulcers. Four days ago, I had one which forms inside my mouth near the lips. As always, ulcers can be painful and most importantly distracting. I had attributed it to either dehydration, or my teeth accidentally bite it when I was sleeping.
I did not do anything to it for three days thinking that if I bite it off, it will secrete the pus and eventually will be gone. Well, I was right. It was gone but within the same day, it grew again.
On the fourth day around 4pm, I had decided to take three globules of Calc. Fluor. The ulcer subsided within the next hour. Take note that it depends on how your body responded to these remedies. Mine most of the time is quite immediate in less than 30 minutes.
There are other symptoms such as the skin near my fingers are chapped and dry, which is a signal to me that there is something deficient in my body.
What is Calcarea Fluorica?
Calcarea Fluorica is also known as Fluor-Spar, beautifully crystallized in lead-veins in nature. In our body, it is found in the surface of the bones, enamel of the teeth, elastic fibres and the cells of the skin. When our body has deficiency of this tissue salt, the fibres causes a continued dilatation or relaxed condition. This is seen in conditions like varicose veins, relaxation of abdominal walls with consequent sagging of the abdominal viscera, uterine and tumours haemorrhages, etc (Cited in Materia Medica of the Twelve Biochemic Remedies by George W. Carey, M.D).
When there is relaxation in the elastic fibres of the blood vessels, connective tissue and lymphatic system, it will not able to absorb exudations. In order for exudations to be dismissed, having sufficient Calc Fluor will help to restore our body’s condition.
